Perfect location on West Franklin Street in my favorite town!The staff was very accommodating, and we loved the option of using the SUV shuttle. Rooms were spacious and cozy, and parking was plentiful. Can't wait to stay here again on our next trip to CH.

When I was there I did a run roughly following the Pumpkin Loop in the Carolina North Forest. You can just Google for it. That was a nice run in forest surroundings, slightly hilly, relatively smooth gravel surface.
