We booked a room for a Saturday night in March and my wife corresponded with the owner. It was a little odd that we picked up our key in the mailbox, checked ourselves in, even looked around the building, but did not meet the proprietors until breakfast the next morning. Perhaps it was because they were preparing for a private... More

Beautiful old home in the historic town of Tarboro just a few minutes off Rt. 95 that afforded us with peace and quiet. Our room (at the upper left) was spacious and included a beautiful period king sized bed. In lieu of eating at the Inn the next morning, we opted for a bag to go that included a bountiful... More

We chose to stay in Tarboro as an alternative to a chain hotel on I 95 and were rewarded with a delightful experience at the Main Street Inn. The inn has been beautifully restored by Denise and Stuart Sanderson. It has beautiful high ceiling public spaces, which undoubtedly make it very comfortable in the warmer weather (although it was a... More

Our second visit here. We have stayed here on our way up North from FL. Very nice, clean, good location, but it is about 10 m from I95. New bathrooms this time and they have done a nice job on the refurbishment.The owners are very gracious. A perfect stop. A beautiful town.

The Main St Inn and its location in Tarboro, NC is as pure a spirit of old America you will find in North Carolina - which have many examples of heritage. Denise Sanderson is the ultimate Southern chic with a hint of femme fatale - Room 5 is my favorite and sitting outside on a rocking chair drinking champagne the... More

When you stay at the Main Street Inn, you feel as though you are stepping back in time. This was a perfect choice for us, since we were in Tarboro to dedicate a monument to one of my partner's ancestors (who was one of the town founders). Our hostess, Denise, greeted us warmly and showed us to a room with... More

Main Street Inn is hosted by Denise Sanderson who epitomizes the Southern grace and charm you read about in "Southern Living" magazine. Yeah readers, it really does exist- in the small historic town of Tarboro, NC. She hosted my daughter's wedding today, with literally three day's notice. My daughter stayed in room 5 on the third floor. The room was... More

The Main Street Inn is located in Edgecombe County, North Carolina. My wife and I were there to attend a family wedding in neighboring Halifax County but decided to stay overnight at the Main Street Inn because I was born in Tarboro and occasionally re-visit the town to recharge my batteries and my soul. Tarboro has for the most part... More

Beautifully restored historic home on the main avenue of town. Short walk to one of Eastern North Carolina's best restaurants, On The Square. Very nice, filling breakfast including fruit smoothies.
