It was a long time in the design phase (trying to better the Fitzgerald bathroom!), but the Thomas Wolfe room is now ready for occupancy. It features a "roman bath", ceiling-mounted rain head shower, LED edge-lit glass sink and cast glass panel and fiber optic lighting on the floor, walls and tub. And, the roman bath fills from the ceiling. Check it out here.
The July 13, 2014 edition of SmarterTravel.com featured the Cloisters (with a picture) and Fitzgerald (with a mention of its Pinterest.com success). You can read the full article here. We are the seventh bathroom in the article.
The bathroom is completely new - a two person jetted tub that fills from the ceiling, a separate "walk in" shower with ceiling mounted rain-head shower fixture plus a hand shower and "twinkling" fiber optic lighting on the floor and ceiling.
In late 2011, Bed and Breakfast.com uploaded pictures of the bed and breakfasts that were members of their Diamond Collection onto Pinterest.com. In early February, we got an e-mail from them saying that our picture of the Fitzgerald Bathroom had gone "viral" with over 7,000 "repins. To date, that number has grown to over 60,000 repins! Check out the pictures here (it will appear in a separate window).
And, in March, 2015 the Fitzgerald bathroom was the subject of a "Facebook Frenzy". In a matter of three days, a picture of the Fitzgerald bathroom had over 770,000 "Likes" and 188,900 "Shares"!
We are extremely proud that AAA has awarded us its prestigious AAA Four Diamond Rating for our seventh year in 2016. We are one of only eleven bed and breakfast inns, out of over 450 in North Carolina, to receive this coveted honor.
