We just spent three very pleasant days/nights at this B&B, which is one of only three serving the Seagrove, North Carolina pottery center. As my father-in-law is a potter, we wanted to stay in Seagrove, despite a lack of restaurants, so we could visit as many of the 60+ potteries and galleries as possible. This particular inn is basically in the center of the action, so very convenient. It is owned by husband&wife potters David Fernandez and Alexa Modderno, who make wonderful hosts and who have their pottery and shop right next door. You will really enjoy the varied artwork and crafts, including of course, much pottery from the area, adorning every room. There is a lot of it, but not overwhelming. The B&B currently has two fantastic, comfortable bedrooms, each with excellent furnishings and nice bathrooms though if you are short, the vessel tub in the one bathroom is a bit of a challenge - but David and Alexa have provided a step stool for this reason. The B&B part of the building (the rest is their private home) has free wireless and cable TV as well as a kitchen you can use if you like (i.e., if you want to bring your own food for lunch and dinner - again, Seagrove lacks dining options - just three local places for lunch and nothing for dinner - you have to drive about 20 minutes to Asheboro for dinner options). The lower level has a very comfortable lounge with TV and a good selection of books and magazines. Alexa and David make wonderful breakfasts with fresh fruit and really tasty entrees. We especially loved the baked oatmeal. David was extremely helpful in telling us about the different potteries in the area so we could see a good representation of each of the many styles of pottery - from purely functional to purely artistic, and made with various techniques and glazes. The only drawback is the location right on the main street, meaning that traffic noise can be an issue. However, there was very little traffic at night and we solved the noise problem by opening a window in the bathroom (at the back of the building) rather than in the bedroom (in the front of the building).
