My wife and I recently spent a few nights at The Wilson House B&B while shopping for furniture in High Point. I have to say Ron and his family provided a real first-class experience! They were incredibly hospitable and went out of their way to make us feel right at home. They even asked us for our breakfast preferences and cooked up a wonderful feast every morning.
The house itself is amazing too, as it has been in Ron's family for generations. They have done a great job keeping its original features while adding modern conveniences guests would expect. Our room was a generous size with a super comfortable king bed, TV, sitting area with table and private bath. We tend to picky about cleanliness and this place certainly exceeded our expectations.
The location is downtown and within walking distance to the furniture shops on Main St. Ron is more than happy to give advice about the local area and was definitely helpful pointing out good furniture shops and restaurants. You cannot beat the value here too as the price was substantially less than we have paid at other B&B's. If you are looking for friendly service and high quality accomodations in High Point, look no further than The Wilson House!
