Harrell House Bed and Breakfast | Bed & Breakfast
Located in Southeastern North Carolina, a country block off Interstate Highway I-40 near Wilmington and the Atlantic beaches, the Harrell House was built of "heart of pine" and local cypress wood, in 1897 by Jim Harrell when he was only 18 years old, with 2 carpenters and 1 brick mason. The original core house is pictured at the end of the central hallway.
It is now a beautiful, accommodating Bed & Breakfast and the innkeepers are always ready to make your stay a home away from home. You will always be greeted with a smile and a hearty breakfast.
The house features four bedrooms, with the option of a fifth bedroom for large groups. The dining room is an enclosed back porch with a small wood-stove, set on a raised hearth. The walls are the original exterior clapboards with displays of civil war farm instruments, as well as the carpentry tools used to build the house in 1897. The adjoining porches and the terrace can be used for eating spaces as well. At the end of the dining room is a small sitting area, with Cousin Cora's antique horsehair couch.
The "dogtrot" hall has pictures of the past and present inhabitants of the house, and leads to the front porch with rockers. Another hall has a working pump organ, a "hall tree" and a place to take off your boots if you have been for a walk in the woods or a wading in the creek! The farm kitchen has modern appliances, but a rustic eating bar where 3 generations of children were fed while watching Momma cook.
