I stayed here a few years ago for 3 nights. I still find myself longing for that comfy bed, awesome shower, good book and porch swing. Property has so much character and the owners were very accommodating.

We drove all day and arrived past 6 p.m., but had no problems checking in that late. Mike & Karen were very helpful, recommending places to visit in town. We parked our car and walked to most of our destinations while visiting. Loved eating breakfast out on the front porch. Breakfast was very delicious and varied. I would stay here... More

It was a wonderful experience. Sail Inn is walking distance to restaurants, Tryon Palace, and it is in the Historic District... More

The Sail Inn is a lovely restored home with 3 guest rooms and a great front porch for sitting and swinging! Michael and Karen are as friendly as you'll find and super accommodating. I look forward to my next visit with them.
