“True Hospitality”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

This is a long overdue review of the best B&B I've ever encountered! We stayed at The Inn At Teardrops in May 2013 for a wedding. The house itself is a tastefully appointed historical gem and could not be better situated in terms of convenience to all the small town charm downtown Hillsborough has to offer. You can enjoy some really lovely walks through the neighborhood to admire the stately homes in the area, as well as a short walk to downtown with all its shops, restaurants and historic sites. You can also just relax on the back porch and admire the garden, or enjoy leafing through one of the many fascinating books available to read. The owner Tom will be more than happy to offer a suggestion. Meeting Tom was the true delight of our trip; he welcomed us as if we were old friends, and we've never met with warmer hospitality or felt more at home in a place. By the time we left we felt we'd made a friend for life! There is something in the atmosphere that makes you feel as if you've stepped back in time, and I would echo the sentiments of a previous reviewer in saying "magical!" We've stayed at more B&Bs than we can count, but this was by far the most delightful we've ever seen. We think of our visit and Tom often and look forward to visiting again!

My partner and I recently enjoyed a magical three nights at the Inn at Teardrops in Hillsborough, North Carolina. Tom, the owner, gave us a personalized tour of the inn, taking the time to explain the historic family photographs and amazing art that fills this eighteenth century historic home. As history teachers, we were enamored with the quantity of books and period pieces that fill the home, in addition to beautiful, eclectic art from around the world. Tom and his kind staff will make you feel right at home, attending to all of your needs and questions, and Jorge and Austen serve up delicious breakfasts in the European dining area. We loved the room we stayed in, which was beautiful, clean, and charming. When we had some time to relax at the inn, we enjoyed poring over the rich collections of art books and literature in the parlor. Definitely go to the Inn at Teardrops if you need some peace and relaxation in a quaint, historic town that lets you escape it all.

In the small but historic town of Hillsborough, there is a very special Bed and Breakfast for those who care for a great place to stay in pre Revolutionary War surroundings. The house dates back to 1767 and is furnished with early 1900's furniture, antiques and paintings. The bedrooms are air conditioned, very comfortable and the bathrooms have been modernized. Downtown is walking distance (one block) and features several superb restaurants. Points of interests range from art galleries and small shops to a recently added chocolate shop. My wife and I have stayed at the Inn numerous times and always enjoyed a great nights sleep, a fine breakfast with Tom and his staff as well as having tried the local restaurants. If you like fine historical homes, antiques, fine food and a great host, you will have to look a long time to find an Inn like this.

Again, I am reminded how special Teardrops is. We have stayed there many times since 1990. A wonderful spot to enjoy a very cool little town. We adore it and hope to return for many years to come. Amazing hospitality, beautiful, cool, clean rooms and always a yummy breakfast.
Historic antiques and art in every room.

Lots of history to see and things to do from Ayr mount to the Masonic lodge! Antique shopping and yummy, healthy food abound.

We love it! A gem.

Room Tip: All are good, I've stayed in every one!

Inn at Teardrops was truly a gem in Hillsborough, NC. I recently attended a yoga retreat with a girlfriend, and found the inn on TA.

We were delighted by the welcome, the lovingly decorated and cared for inn, breakfasts, and the proximity to restaurants, and lovely shops and galleries.

The innkeeper, Tom and his assistant, Jorge could not have made our stay more special. This is a must-stay inn.

The neighborhood, the accommodations and the innkeeper, Tom Roberts were all delightful.

The house retains many of its pre-Revolutionary War appointments, including original fireplaces. Early nineteenth century additions that expand on the original saltbox design flow together nicely.

While surrounded by history, the house boasts modern kitchen, bathroom and laundry facilities.

The welcoming atmosphere, the graciousness and the extra touches make even a business trip a charming getaway.

Room Tip: Every room is delightful. The Richmond room, with its view overlooking the King Street frontage was...

How often have you slept in a home that was built in the 1700's?! The furniture and art were as intriguing as the stories that accompanied them. Tom, the owner, is fascinating and we were pleased with all of his recommendations. We loved walking to a fine restaurant and chocolate shop. Next time, we plan to stay longer.
