“For the past four months, I’ve called this place home. The basement has everything you can possibly need and way more. The twinkle lights in the bedroom will keep you company during those long studying nights and the most comfortable pillows you’ve ever slept on will reward you with the sweetest dreams right after. Every morning, a bunch of colorful llamas will be there staring at you from the picture they are in -funky cactus included too- beside the queen size bed. The big (fat) American washing machine is going to test your housewife skills, but there is no need to worry: if it ends up with water and soap all over your floor, Cara and Dan will be ready to fix the situation with dozens of towels and even more laughs. During sunny summer days there’s nothing better than chilling on one of the blue chairs in the patio, with a good book in your hands (and maybe a tasty avocado toast within reach) and the perfect southern folk playlist going on and on and on. Be sure to go for a walk around the neighborhood as soon as the leaves begin to fall and enjoy the stunning beauty of Nature in front of your eyes. If you are in the mood for a classy American brunch, there is no better place than Krankies where you will have the chance to enjoy eggs benedict on top of a homemade biscuit. Bacon is highly recommended by Dan, as well as an extra biscuit, but only on Sundays! Horseback riding in the woods is also a good idea if you wish to challenge your inner cowboy/cowgirl. Take photos, collect memories. Trust me, you will miss these days. There is just one more thing I want to suggest you, future guest: in order to live the most amazing, unexpected and unforgivable experience during your time in Winston, be sure to spend as much time as you can with Cara, Dan and Parker. They have been family to me, they have been friends. Words are not enough to say how thankful I am for have met them. Each day has been a little adventure with Cara and Parky by my side and it will be hard to forget Dan’s face while a big spoon of tiramisù was on its way to his mouth. We talked a lot, we shared even more. I never felt alone and I always felt loved. They were there, ready to help me in any time. People say home is where the heart is. Well, a piece of my heart will be always in Winston Salem with Cara, Dan and Parker.”

Fun Things To Discover Within Walking Distance
+ Check out the funky vintage Airstream for locally roasted coffee & baked goods. On different days food trucks set up by the Airstream & the bicycle shop. Look for Dough-Joe’s for homemade doughnuts (just follow the irresistible aroma).
+ Explore one-of-a-kind bars 1/2 mile away…there’s the newly opened Joymongers pub specializing in craft beers aged in barrels, West End Opera House to play some old school darts or enjoy a brew sitting out on the deck at The Tap.
+ Go for a stroll and explore the tree-lined neighborhood with its charming historic homes built during Winston-Salem’s tobacco heyday (ask Cara about the castle house).
+ Enjoy Tapas Tuesday or Sunday brunch at the gourmet restaurant next door.
+ On a sunny day check out the interesting home goods shops 1/2 mile away and stop by the homemade gelato shop for a tasty afternoon pick-me-up.
+ Check out the cool farm in the middle of the city. Say hello to the farm animals, pick up some local produce. Strawberries in May and explore the pumpkin patch in October (a great photo op).
+ Sample infused honey at Urban Colony Store’s “honey bar.” We love the bourbon & chocolate infused honeys. The building used to be a pharmacy back in the day when they had soda fountains.
+ If you’re up for an adventure, walk to The Porch Cantina for fresh Tex-Mex fare, try their margarita flights, play some corn hole, then drop on over to Hoot’s Roller Bar & Beer Company.
+ Head on over to historic Hanes Park to play some tennis.
