We are pleased to frequent this wonderful place as guests of the wise, wonderful, and aware Innkeeper who provides clean rooms, a tasty breakfast, and an historical atmosphere. It has become a refuge of rest for the difficult times, as well as a joyous place of celebration marked with many memories. This Christmas, we were blessed to experience a rare... More

Thanks for your wonderful review. Your visits to the Zevely Inn have meant so much to me. Our times spent on the veranda, solving the problems of the world, figure into some of my fondest memories. If everyone had a heart and soul like the two of you, there would indeed be peace on earth. More

We elected to start our tour of the southeastern US here in Old Salem as it is only 85 miles (if my memory serves me) from Charlotte Airport. An easy well signposted drive, we found it no problem. The Inn is a historic house in a street of historic houses, a church and museums as well as some houses which... More

Our stay in this 18th century inn was perfect. I would like to say that less is more but without diminishing all that this place has to offer. Times were simpler then and the atmosphere here gives you that feeling. The staff were wonderful and accommodating, especially when dining. The talks were wonderful. A friendly and relaxing time in a... More

What a delightful introduction to this area of North Carolina. The inn is lovely, very charming and clean. The innkeepers went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcome. The common rooms are tastefully decorated and relaxing. Breakfast was delicious. We even were given slices of lemon cake to enjoy on our long ride home. We will... More

In town for the Winston Salem Open Tennis Tournament, we opted to stay in Old Salem and chose the Zevely for its serene setting in the heart of the restored historical district. Indeed, many of the surrounding buildings are preserved landmarks with costumed docents happy to demonstrate colonial crafts and describe what life then, particularly in NC and specifically Salem,...

This historic Inn sits quietly on South Main Street, in the center of Old Salem, but is only a few blocks from downtown Winston Salem. The red brick building was built in 1844 by Augustus Theophilus Zevely, a saddler, doctor, and mayor of Salem. In 1845, he began operating the house as an inn. Furnishings are from that period of...

We stayed in the Summer Kitchen for two nights while we toured Old Salem. We LOVED everything about the inn, especially Linda and Sherri. Our room was so comfortable with modern amenities and fun with the historic flair. The room has the original fireplace, a television and attached modern bathroom.

Our two night stay at the Inn was wonderful. Sherri is a gracious host, always available but never intruding. She added to the enjoyment of our visit by treating us as family. Each morning's breakfast provided healthy choices. Staying in the Ann Lavinia Zevely Room (#205) provided private access and a second floor porch with rocking chairs. Staying at the... More

My wife and I stayed at the Augustus T. Zevely Inn on our visit to Old Salem. We were in room 302 - the Henry Petticord Room. Don't pick this room if you are challenged by stairs!
