Fodor's Expert Review Oakwood Inn
411 N. Bloodworth St., Raleigh, North Carolina, 27604, USA
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
This 1871 Italianate B&B, one of the first to be built in what is now the Oakwood Historic District, and about six blocks from downtown, is on the National Register of Historic Places; each of its individually decorated rooms has a working fireplace, high ceilings, and walls with rich, solid colors. Nonalcoholic drinks and homemade cookies are always on hand, so guests can enjoy refreshments on the front porch overlooking a yard filled with irises, star magnolias, and a vegetable garden that provides produce for the inn's hot breakfasts.
- good value
- the only B&
- B in the Oakwood Historic District
- the surrounding Victorian homes and tree-lined streets make for good strolling
- all the Victorian furnishings aren't for everyone
