An Elegant and Comfortable Stay for the Holidays

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely home for our family to gather for the holidays: a large, open, well-equipped kitchen accommodates multiple cooks, guests, and a puzzle table; the massive dining table with beautiful china and crystal glassware added an elegant touch to our holiday meal; and the comfortable front room couch and chairs with the gas fireplace was the perfect place to relax and chat or watch TV. Beds were comfortable and, despite the very cold weather, the house stayed toasty and warm (amazing, given the height of the ceilings!).

The house is located two short blocks from the waterfront and the main shopping area, which is small but charming. We walked to a local dinner spot one night (Governor's Pub) and enjoyed the casual, family-friendly atmosphere (and great wings). Historic markers around town recall the colonial character of this once thriving port town. Currently the historic theater is slated for renovation back to its 1920's heyday, another of the ongoing projects aimed at restoring/retaining the unique character of the town. Volunteers at the Visitor's Center and shopkeepers were happy to chat and share stories, and a day trip to the Dismal Swamp (~45 minute drive) was fascinating.

The house has been lovingly restored and decorated, with gorgeous wood floors, embellished window treatments, and elegant yet comfortable furnishings. The owners had small but welcoming holiday decorations on the front porch and on the front room mantelpiece, and we enjoyed walking around the neighborhood to see all the lights. While I would agree with previous comments that this is perhaps not the best option for visitors with small children, we five adults very much enjoyed our quiet holiday in this lovely home in Edenton.

A beautiful home in a very pretty town!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving stay at Three Palms. The house is indeed beautiful, with lovely period furnishings and architectural details. The updated kitchen is well equipped and spacious- a great place to prepare a holiday meal! The beds, couches and chairs were all very comfortable. David and Michael were clear and prompt in all communications.

We would highly recommend a stay at Three Palms and a visit to lovely Edenton to all.

Beautiful property in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Three Palms was a beautiful property with plenty of space. It was a perfect spot for a vacation and situated in a cute town with a special history of its own. It was great to have the use of a fully-equipped home and not be limited to a hotel. The property was clean and well-maintained and the owner was prompt in answering questions as we approached our stay. I would recommend Three Palms to others. Restaurant selections in the city were disappointing, with only one of the three that we went to being very good - The Table at Inner Banks.

The home was beautiful with exquisite antiques and furnishings.

  • 4 of 5

The home was beautiful. The furnishing were exquisite! Some of the renovations were not complete and you could easily tell after you spent some time in the home. The home is not set up for a family of six. We had trouble trying to all sit in the living room since it only had two wing chairs and a small sofa. It also isn't the best home for children. We were constantly watching to be certain they were not getting too close to the beautiful accent pieces around the rooms. It would be a perfect home for a couple to visit or ever two couples.

What I was most surprised about was the food in the refrigerator that was open and appeared to be left from other visitors to the home. The pantry was also full of opened food. We had to rearrange the food in order to put our items in the refrigerator, freezer, and pantry.

There was also an army of ants in the kitchen. As our experience in the past has been, the home has always been ready for occupancy by the renter. They were on the floor, the counter top, and on the island. The neighborhood was not what I expected. Beyond the home, the surrounding neighborhood appeared to be questionable.

The town of Edenton should not be missed by anyone that travels even remotely close by. It is the friendliest town I have visited in many years. It still rolls up on Sundays and observes the Blue Laws that most towns have done away with. We celebrated the 4th of July with the town people and enjoyed their festival that was set up. The Outer Banks is an hour or so away and we enjoyed a day there also.

David Stevenson, one of the owners, could not have done more to help us enjoy our stay. I must have called him three times or more and he was very helpful each time. If you want a place to get away to and enjoy stepping back in time, Edenton, NC is for you.

Owner's Response: Frankly, I'm a bit surprised by this review. The couple seemed absolutely thrilled with the house and it's furnishings when they arrived. We do leave only condiments in the fridge for our guests to use if they wish. We were not aware of ant problem and have taken imediate steps to correct this. If we had been made aware during their stay, we would have done so even then. Three Palms is an elegant, historic home and is furnished accordingly. There are no "lazy boy" recliners or particle board furnishings as you might find in a modern home. There are fine antiques and antique reproductions throughout the house. I regret that this recent guest did not find it all that they expected. As I read previous reviews, this is the exception to the rule.
