We LOVED this place. Beautiful, clean, well-decorated, amazing hosts, awesome location to everything downtown, quiet, and even a private feel for a bed and breakfast. We're so happy we went for this option instead of staying at a mainstream hotel.

My husband and I lived in Greensboro for over 20 years and neither of us knew about this wonderful bed and breakfast. We were back in town this weekend for a wedding and friends told us about it. We had a wonderful stay! The inn keepers were wonderfully friendly and accommodating. The rooms themselves were beautifully decorated and the bed... More

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. We're glad seeing the display was a memorable experience. We're also pleased you enjoyed your stay at the Troy-Bumpas Inn B&B. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with others!... More
