Fresh and Inviting Cottage Within a Historic Mill Village…Your Perfect Edenton Stay!

Newly decorated relaxing cottage with two queen bedrooms, two baths, and a full kitchen

When this cottage was built in 1900, it was designed as a duplex: simple living for two mill workers with a shared kitchen and privy at the back of the property! Once the mill was closed and the entire site turned over to Preservation North Carolina (PNC) in 1996, the cottages were either sold to original working families or rehabbed for sale into the single family dwellings they are today. We have named our home “Azalea Cottage” as a tribute to the prominence of azaleas in eastern North Carolina (as well as in the front yard). Facing Elliott Street is a front porch with metal glider, drinks table, and two wicker chairs. The front lawn features a mixture of azaleas, irises, daffodils, camellias, and a young magnolia.

NOTE: It is important to know before reading further that this property is for a maximum of four people only — all over the age of 25. We do not accept children, smokers, or pets. We have chosen not to charge a security fee. We have chosen not to charge a cleaning fee. These are significant savings to our guests. We do expect guests to respect our cottage, clean up after themselves, and leave the cottage as it was found when they first walked into it. If this sounds like it suits you, please read on!

Please send email to if you have any questions about the cottage or available dates. We will reply as quickly as possible, usually within a few hours.
