I can't even begin to say how much I loved staying in Elizabeth and Dan's beautiful, cozy, cottage in Carrboro. Nestled in a beautiful, wooded neighborhood (with wonderful neighbors), the house has everything one would need for a one-year stint at the National Humanities Center, or a visiting teaching stint at one of the local universities. The house comes with linens, towels, a well-stocked kitchen, a stacked washer/dryer unit, a dishwasher. It has lots of closet space and also you can store stuff in a crawl space under the house. It is walking/biking distance to Carrboro village and supermarkets (Weaver St Market, Harris Teeter, and a number of first class restaurants -- my favorite was A Glass Half Full).

The drive to the NHC is easy (as someone coming from NJ, it was quite pleasant) and takes 25-30 minutes depending on traffic.

Elizabeth and Dan are wonderful landlords, responding to requests immediately and they also provide quite a few resources in the house for getting to know the area. They are also kind enough to allow pets, since they love animals and have a dog of their own (Freyja) who is literally the sweetest dog I've ever met (a beauty of a black lab). I had a dog and two cats with me and they loved the house and my dog absolutely loved walking in the neighborhood, as there are numerous wooded trails along creeks and in the UNC forest within walking distance from the house.

The beds are comfortable and if you are one person or a couple, you'll have a guest room for your visitors, as well as a futon couch in the living room for another guest if necessary.

If you like birds, this is also a wonderful place to see numerous species who are either resident or passing through. The biggest thrill of the year was having a resident red-shouldered hawk couple that built a nest across the street and raised two chicks in it...

I recommend this property for a sabbatical stay enthusiastically. I will definitely be back if I get another opportunity to spend time in the research triangle area....

Thanks, Dan and Elizabeth (and Freyja, for a wonderful year!!!

I stayed in this lovely house during a 5-month sabbatical at UNC. It is located in a quiet, wooded part of Carrboro, only minutes away from an entrance to the Carolina North Forest (fantastic for walking/running/mountain-biking). The house is fully furnished, and includes all mod-cons (including a rice cooker!). The landlords, Elizabeth and Dan Nord, live next door and were wonderful.

I didn't have a car while staying here but got a bike instead. The house is very convenient for cycling: 5 minutes to the nearest supermarket, 10 minutes to the shops and restaurants in downtown Carrboro, and 18 minutes to UNC campus (a pleasant ride along dedicated bike trails and roads with bike lanes). The house is also 5 minutes from a major bus route that services Carrboro and Chapel Hill.

I would thoroughly recommend this home to anyone who is planning to spend time in the Chapel Hill/Carrboro area.

We stayed in this lovely house during a sabbatical year in 2010-2011 and found it perfect. It is very convenient to UNC and all the delights of Chapel Hill and yet has a rural charm with forested surroundings and deer running around in the area. Our son (Middle Schooler) enjoyed the local public school and our dog was delighted with all the walks. The Nords are perfect landlords and keen on being good neighbours as well. Highly recommended!

Everything about this home is charming. The setting is lovely, the neighbors are delightful, and the Nords, who live next door, are warm and helpful. I was sad to have to return to my real life from the idyll I enjoyed in this house in Carrboro.

The commute to Duke was easy; there's no commute to speak of for UNC. Although this house feels like a woodland cottage, it's within a short walk of shopping and local restaurants and a 5-minute drive to great take-out spots in Chapel Hill.

If you're spending time at Duke or UNC, this is the place to live. Wonderful in every way!
