I booked a small getaway for my wife and I to celebrate our anniversary. Both of us were absolutely blown away by Heart and Soul! The house is a beautiful home built in 1901 and has as much charm today as the day it was built. The bed in our suite was so comfortable and everything surrounding us was beautiful. The owners (that are also your host) are so nice and literally make you feel at home. The breakfast every morning was astounding and filled with great conversations with the other guests. Please do yourself a favor and make Heart and Soul a part of your next getaway. You will not be disappointed! We will definitely be going back!

My wife and I planned a getaway trip to Mount Airy. We stayed at Heart & Soul bed and breakfast and what an excellent choice we made. Chris the owner greeted us at the door and provided a tour of the house. From the wine and beverage selection to the comfort of the house amenities it was perfect. The breakfast provided was nothing less than wonderful. We stayed 2 nights in the Merritt room that had a comfortable bed with a very spacious bathroom. The front porch was one of our favorite past times. Everything downtown was within a short walking distance from the B&B. If ever traveling to or around Mount Airy, we would highly recommend staying at Heart & Soul.

Our hosts were absolutely the best! Our room was on the 2nd floor, where we felt we had been transported back to the 1900’s with amazing antiques & paraphernalia. The breakfasts were wonderful, as was the wait staff. Since we were located downtown, it was an easy walk to our dinner reservations at Old North State Winery & Thirsty Souls Community Brewing. The reason we stayed here was because of ‘Hippie Fest 2022’ at Miss Angel’s Farm & while it was a bit steamy that day, it was a great relief to come back to Heart & Soul and enjoy their wraparound porch and a glass of wine. Will definitely be back!!!

The proprietor was great at making us comfortable, feeding us a well-balanced breakfast, and making sure that our needs were met. The place is very clean and well-kept. Chris even had “Barney” come to the B & B to pick us up since my son is physically challenged. We will visit again.

This trip was to celebrate our meeting anniversary. The reviews were satisfactory and the actual experience was superb. We spent two days touring Mayberry with its history and personalities. Each morning we enjoyed a well prepared, fresh, ample breakfast which started our day of adventure. Chris offered sightseeing suggestions while giving us a history of his B&B undertaking. This B&B will be a great location for our future trips.

The B&B is in a quiet street where you can walk to historic downtown within minutes. I didn’t like our room at all. While it was spacious, there was just too much decorative items that there was not any place where you can lay your personal belongings. A settee in the room has seen better days. The upholstery insert was coming out at the seams. I was glad it was just a one nights’ stay.

This is our second time of staying at Heart and Soul, and it most certainly will not be our last! The owners always go out of their way to make sure we are taken care of, and any needs met....and the breakfast is SUPERB!!!! The rooms are beautiful, the B&B is centrally located to all the spots of interest.....It's the ideal place to stay if you want to immerse yourself in all things Mt. Airy!
Heart and Soul is worth every penny, and should be on anyone's short list when looking for places to stay in Mt. Airy.

We are extremely picky customers because we owned and operated a B&B of our own. This was spotless, stunningly beautiful and the breakfast was excellent. We stayed in the Merritt Suite but I would go back and stay in all of them, almost too nice to pick just one. Mt. Airy is a great place to visit if you loved the Andy Griffith show. A DO-NOT-MISS stop is Floyd's Barbershop, even if you don't need a haircut. My husband got one, sitting in the same chair Andy sat in for 20 years. The barber is a fabulous story teller and barber to boot. Enjoy!

Breakfast: Breakfast here seemed to be a labor of love. Each breakfast was unique and had a “comfort-food” style to it. My favorite was the Monte Cristo which was ham and cheese folded with a crepe served with the perfect jam! Nothing against cheesecake and French toast the following morning but that salty sweet the first was just great.

Room: Cozy and unique. Clean. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were plenty for me since the room stayed very cold. Didn’t have control of the temperature but that worked out for us since we like a cooler room.

Location: having never been to ‘Mayberry’ I wasn’t sure how the parking would be downtown and wanted to be within walking distance. Heart and Soul is very close to everything downtown and very quick drive.

We are already making plans to come back.

We are currently not taking reservations in October, Our reservation system is set up to take only 7 months ahead to the day you would like to reserve, That way everyone has a fair chance to stay with us. If we did not do this the suite would be reserved years in advance. Thanks Chris
