Why Eleanor Harper chose Kinston
A notable frame example of the Colonial Revival style is that said to have been designed by Sidney Andrews of Norfolk, Virginia, for J.F. "Jack" Parrott.. Built prior to the opening of the second section of Mitchelltown, this house caused the extension of West Washington Avenue to be made two lots north of its eastern section.
What makes this House unique
This house is minutes away from The Chef and The Farmer. Most of the guests are avid viewers of the A Chef’s Life on PBS.

This was a wonderful trip. Eleanor made sure the check-in was very pleasant. The house was spacious with a big yard. It was close to a grocery store and all the activities that we participated in. I do recommend that you may want to put TV's in all the bedrooms. All in all, I would stay here again and would recommend others to stay there as well.
A step back in time
Things that are great about this house are its location within walking distance of The Chef and The Farmer and all that the fun downtown area has to offer. The house was also clean and spacious.
Wonderful host and great deal
Spectacular old home around the corner from the hoppin area of town. Eleanor was very prompt and accomodating, even after I accidentally deleted all of her information. Would definitely stay here again.
The property was great very spacious
the agent was very helpful
the house was very clean
only thing that was disappointing, was that the TV in the living room did not work
overall I give the place a 4 stars
Kinston Girl's Weekend
We enjoyed our stay in The Harper House. The house was very clean and the beds comfortable. We had a few minor glitches like no wine glasses that Eleanor addressed willingly. Apparently the previous guests had removed them along with other items that made the home seem sparse but it served us well for our ladies weekend centered around dinner at The Chef and Farmer.
Thanks Karen, I am glad that you and the ladies enjoyed your stay! I will definitely have to stock up on wineglasses! Hope to see you again on your next visit to the Chef and Farmer.
