FARMSTEAD LODGING ON THE CAROLINA COASTAL PLAIN

A Williamston, NC Bed & Breakfast Near Greenville, NC

Farmstead Lodging on North Carolina's Inner Banks

Big Mill sits amid acres of farmland and forest in the heart of the Inner Banks — the quiet coastal plain of eastern North Carolina. It's quality lodging in a peaceful setting that's just minutes from major highways and about two hours from Raleigh, NC and Norfolk, VA. A lush landscape where streams and rivers meander through cypress swamps and fertile farmland.

Don't forget your camera. There are plenty of photo-ops.

Much more than just a place to stay. With over 200 acres of grounds, you can walk through the landscaped gardens, explore the original farm outbuildings and wander through woodlands. Shaded by stately, ninety-year-old pecan trees that were planted by the owner’s parents, this Williamston Bed and Breakfast is in the original farmstead that has been in the family since 1920.

A choice of five guest rooms or suites – all with private entrances and spectacular lake views. One suite is for long-term rental and has a kitchen. Also ask about long-term rental in our Air Stream.
