My daughter and I stayed here for nine days while our house was being renovated. Tom the owner was very hospitable. He had breakfast with us and gave us a lot of information of the history of Hillsborough.The innkeeper, Jorge, made delicious breakfasts. We both love staying here. Even though we live in Hillsborough we are planning on coming back.
My stay at the Inn at Teardrops last month was as wonderful as the first time, many years ago. The rooms are cozy, spotless, and tastefully decorated with antiques. Tom, the proprietor, always engages guests in interesting, stimulating conversation over a full, delicious breakfast. This is the place to stay if you are visiting Hillsborough!
We would like to say every good thing about this place and the people who run it. We were there about a month ago, and had an unexpectedly wonderful weekend. Great house! Great town, Great food, Great humans who know how to Live! Very inspiring.
Extremely clean and quiet even though being close to center of town. Felt right at home with friendly and knowledgeable owner and creative food preparation by George. Ate at two restaurants in walking distance that were quite good.
My sisters and I recently went to Hillsborough, NC, for an overnight together and had the best time. We found The Inn at Teardrops online. The house is beautiful and so tastefully decorated. We were only there overnight; I wish we'd had more time to explore all the antiques and books and artwork in our rooms. The innkeeper, Tom, and caretaker, Jorge, know what to do to ensure that their guests have a perfect experience. Tom's been at it a long time and knows a lot about the history of Hillsborough. Jorge is a wonderful cook. The website lists a continental breakfast, but in my book, it was a full breakfast with a cute teddy bear on our plates created from oranges, sausage-and-egg casserole, and some of the most delicious pancakes we've ever had. With coffee, tea (Earl Grey!), freshly squeezed OJ, and yogurt, we had everything we could have wanted. We loved the quaint little town and plan to go back, but next time it won't be on a Sunday/Monday because many of the galleries and other places we wanted to visit were closed. We found enough to amuse ourselves with for a first visit, though. Tom even allowed us to park behind the house once we'd checked out, and let us use the restroom and offered us drinks for our return drive back to Raleigh. We've stayed at a number of B&B's but this was one of the finest. Highly recommended.…
