It's hard to add to the superlatives already offered in these reviews, suffice to say I agree with them all. Larry and Judy are delightful hosts and clearly enjoy opening their beautiful home to visitors. I love, love the early morning coffee touch - it also makes me a better conversationalist at breakfast. Thank you too for my parting gift... More

We called in the late afternoon and were delighted there was a room available for us the same day! We enjoyed our stay so much that we decided to stay an additional day.

The owners live in the B&B and have anticipated every need and make themselves available if visitors need help. I stayed in the Allah Room which has a deck; friends and I enjoyed a lovely spring evening sipping wine and talking there. My bathroom was outstanding: three choices for the shower, a jacuzzi, and double sinks. This is one of... More

Being B&B owners ourselves, we are a little hard to please/impress, but this B&B has definitely mad quite the great impression on us! The hosts are very friendly and knowledgeable about Greensboro. Our spacious room, Lota, had a wonderful, large, spotless bathroom, with EVERY amenity (q tips, make up remover pads, extra drinking glasses, nightlight, hairdryer, etc.). Beautiful carved four...

This is a really wonderful B&B. You would never know you were walking distance from downtown Greensboro. Very cozy room, a huge bathtub big enough for two, and a super comfy bed. The innkeepers are very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was delicious! They even brought coffee up to my room super early before breakfast!

We had a fabulous room and a delicious breakfast. Our hosts gave us great recommendations for local dining and sights to see. The Christmas lights around town were like nothing we'd ever seen before -- they hung in trees as if suspended from nowhere.

Greensboro is rapidly become famous for it's Christmas Light Balls displays, but not everyone knows about them -- yet-- so we mention them to all our December guests.

What a delightful find! We were looking for a relaxing getaway and could not have been more pleased with the experience provided by Larry and Judy at the Troy-Bumpas Inn B&B. The attention to the details showed in everything from the perfect linens on the comfortable bed to the not soon to be forgotten breakfast.

I stayed at the Troy-Bumpas Inn for four nights during my visit to the UNCG. The proximity of the Inn to the campus is extremely convenient for university related visits, plus only downtown is a 15-20 minutes walk away. There are many dining options around, especially on Tate Street. This is an enchanting historic house and every room has a... More
