The Hunt House is a beautiful, five bedroom, five bathroom, 2800 sq. ft. home built by Dr. Robert Lee Hunt of Lattimore, NC, in 1926. The home is surrounded by six acres of pasture, and has an 18 hole disc golf course and walking trail located on the property behind the house. The Hunt House is located only 3.8 miles from the Washburn Switch Industrial Park, 30 minutes from the Tryon Equestrian Center, and 15 minutes from the American Legion World Series. Each of the five bedrooms are fully furnished with handmade heart pine, cherry, or walnut bedroom suites. Most rooms feature hardwood floors and antique furnishings can be found throughout the home.
The comfortable living room features a functional fire place. The large front porch with 8 rocking chairs overlooking the newly-landscaped front yard is the perfect place for a conversation or a quiet evening. A full kitchen and adjoining dining room offer opportunities for nice meals or meetings. Visitors have access to a two-car garage and additional parking for up to nine vehicles.
Sidewalks starting in the front yard lead to the quaint downtown of Lattimore and The Depot Cafe, where breakfast is served five days and week and lunch is served six. It is the perfect place to take a morning walk and see friendly faces.
As we begin this B&B journey, there is a very limited continental breakfast available every morning, but we highly recommend eating at The Depot Cafe, on weekdays, to get the full southern town experience. Please call or email to book a room.
The Hunt House was the home of my great-grandfather and it has been an honor to help restore the home to its most pristine condition. I live around the corner and am just a phone call away for any needs that may arise. Thank you for considering the Hunt House as your "home away from home."
