The Inn at Governors Club Guest Reviews

See what our guests are saying about The Inn at Governors Club:

10/13/23 from Jan for Hatteras: This was a great place for our family to stay for my niece’s wedding,

10/10/23 from Arthi, AirBNB: Our group of 3 families had a wonderful colleage reunion and chose Karen’s place to use as the base as we went back to visit UNC!  House is spacious, clean and in a beautiful golf club. The 4 rooms off the living room on the main floor are identical-which we loved as it meant every family had the same set up regardless of when they arrived 

9/25/23 From Priscilla: The celebration of my 80th birthday on August 28th was everything I had wished for.  My daughter's gift of having our family stay at The Sandhills was perfect.  It was comfortable and met everyone's needs.  Thank you for making these memories possible.

09/18/23 from Annemarie, AirBNB: Karen we a great host. She was very receptive to my text and emails. The place is perfect for a Field Hockey reunion. We spent a lot of time on campus and the commute was very easy. The views from the back deck were amazing. Everyone left feeling rested and peaceful. THANK YOU!!!

05/14/23 from Rosemary: We had a wonderful stay at the Governors Club! The Piedmont is a beautiful cottage with all the amenities. Immaculate grounds and an ideal setting with attentive service by the property owner. Looking forward to a future visit!

02/24/23 from Brad, an AirBNB guest: This place was amazing. Our group loved the place. It was our 10 year reunion from UNC and we couldn’t have asked for a better place. Location was great, Karen was very responsive and flexible accommodating to all our plans. Definitely recommend for a group.

02/13/23 from Marc, an AirBNB guest: A beautiful 6 BR home overlooking a golf course. Exquisitely clean, tastefully decorated, with a wonderful conference room we used for a business meeting--included a projector, large screen and large whiteboard. Two lower bedrooms are suites, and all rooms are large and well maintained. Kitchen was well-supplied, and all appliances were clean and in working order. A couple of Keurigs were nice, and there was a computer and printer stocked with paper that was quite useful. Karen worked to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Highly recommend.

02/10/23 from Josh, a VRBO guest: This property was perfect for my family gathering of 16 people. We all had a wonderful time and the house provided us a home base for the weekend. The house was clean and stocked with linens. The kitchen was perfect for our needs and the coffee that was provided was an added bonus. I plan on renting this house again the next time I have a large group. Thank you Karen for making the process of staying at your property easy and accessible.

10/09/22 from Amy, an AirBNB guest: What a perfect place for our reunion! The location is convenient to Chapel Hill, and the layout of the lodge is quite unique and served our group of 16 very well. With ample common space and private bedroom suites each with its own bathroom, the lodge is perfect for groups. The porch overlooking the golf course is lovely with a private, beautiful view. Owner was very communicative and helpful. I highly recommend this property and will be returning!

08/26/22 from Melanie, an AirBNB guest: Our team really enjoyed time planning and connecting - clean and comfortable!

08/11/22 from Gina, a VRBO guest: No stress and comfortable gathering of family and friends… 

08/07/22 from Naboo Carrboro: The best place to have your special event, first class service, ample parking, highly recommended. 

08/07/22 from Catherine, an AirBNB guest: Everyone was thrilled with the weekend accommodations. We especially enjoyed the beautiful Carolina scenery, community spaces that encouraged relationship-building, comfortable beds for restful sleep, and the large conference room for getting into business. 

09/26/21 from Julia, an AirBNB guest: Wow, wow, and wow!!! There is nothing I would change about this absolutely lovely accommodation. This house has every amenity and detail you could wish for. The beds were comfortable. The rooms were spacious. The tubs and showers were extra large with high shower heads and great water pressure (it’s the little things)! The main living spaces were perfect for sitting around with a group for any type of gathering. We had so much fun together here! I’d be a mistake not to mention that the golf course and surrounding club are BEAUTIFUL—a great setting for relaxation. It felt like we had traveled to a mini getaway spot. Despite being in a Country Club that has gated-entry and check-in at the front, Karen does all of the necessary upfront work to make it super fast to check in and go to and fro with ease. One detraction from this property is that it’s a little farther out from popular attractions: downtown Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh etc. It’s less problematic if you’re coming in with cars, but twice during the day when we tried to book Ubers (and even when booking in advance), we were unable to request ones out here, which made us late to events and caused some stressful improvisation. (Note: this could also be due in part to an overall labor/ Uber shortage). Perhaps ask Karen for the name of a car service to book in advance of your stay. 

07/04/21 from Mark: We've had the opportunity to stay in golf villas in a few countries and around the U.S.  We look for comfortable beds, a shared area where we can all gather for drinks and meals (if we choose), close to the golf and decent restaurants. The Inn at The Governor’s Club offers all of that and beautiful surroundings. 

06/14/21 from Hanna, an AirBNB guest: My wedding was at the governors club, so we rented Karen’s place for our family to stay and gather throughout the weekend. It was a great place. The house is bigger in person than it is in pictures. Our whole family enjoyed the stay. Karen was good to work with and flexible with check in/check out. 

06/19/20 from Steven, an AirBNB guest: Karen was an amazing resource to have while in NC. While our crew was road tripping not only did you open your home for us to both work and sleep, but you also made sure that the grounds crew knew when to work around OUR schedules. I have never had a host so accommodating and caring. Truly felt like we were in our own private hotel. As for the grounds no words can describe the beauty we drove into. Left at a loss for words. We as a full crew hope that this property brings you not only great business but also brings joy to all the other guests that stay with you. 

1/2/20 from Wesley, an AirBNB guest: “Top notch!!! Everything about this setup was awesome. Karen is incredibly responsive and wonderful to work with. The house is exactly as described, but feels so much more amazing in person than pictures could ever provide. The kitchen is well supplied for any cooking you may do (pans, knives, etc.), and she provided an abundance of easy breakfast options (frozen fruit, yogurt, frozen waffles, and even milk in the fridge!). This was our first time renting through AirBnB, but this location will certainly stay at the top of our list for big family gatherings around Chapel Hill! At any given point, we had 10 adults, 6 teenagers, and 4 young children - ample space to be together, or just hanging around and doing your own thing...can’t beat it!”

11/21/19 Jessica, an AirBNB guest: "My Team and Family had a blast"

11/8/19 Kevin, an AirBNB guest: "Outstanding house for company retreats."

10/30/19 Tony, an AirBNB guest: "Karen was great to work with. The location is beautiful and peaceful. The home is spectacular. Amazing space to house our team leaders We had an amazing company retreat. Our employees spoke very highly of our choice of location and kept asking “How did you find this place?” It was perfect for our needs."

10/27/19 Ralph, a VRBO guest:  "Awesome venue for a large gathering.  Everything was as advertised. Awesome villa, not too far from Chapel Hill, and wonderful beds and space."

10/13/19 Kayla, an AirBNB guest: "Karen is by far the best host I have ever had! She was opening with communication and willing to let us tour her home before our stay. We used her home for our wedding weekend to host our rehearsal dinner. Karen was very accommodating and helpful throughout the entire process. We could not be more thankful to have her host our guests as well. Everyone had a great time and I would totally recommend Karen’s home anyone needing a large place to stay!"

10/12/19 Karl, a VRBO guest: "Gorgeous property that makes it easy to navigate the Triangle.  Wonderful home with a great view in a nice quiet neighborhood. I would recommend planning on eating out or ordering in for larger groups as the kitchen is a little small, but living and sleeping quarters are very spacious. Karen is accommodating and responsive. A great experience!"

10/7/19  Barry, a VRBO guest: "Great property for large group where members need individual rooms and private baths. Karen was super. She was professional,  available and very responsive."

9/20/19 Karen, an AirBNB guest: "Beautiful villa in a gorgeous location, perfect for our informal get-together of friends and family on a fall football weekend. We loved sitting on the back porch in the evening and early mornings. I would definitely recommend for a group gathering!"

9/6/19 Marcel, an AirBNB guest: "Perfect for corporate retreats!"

7/25/19 from Grant, an AirBNB guest: “This house worked out great for a work retreat and meeting! We would definitely stay again!”

6/30/19 from Dana, an AirBNB guest:  “We had such a great time at Karen’s. The place was just perfect for 20+ people to comfortably share the space and still feel like they can have privacy. We enjoyed the communal areas for plenty of food and board games and hanging out talking. Definitely recommend Karen’s place. It was clean and tidy and she responds quickly to anything you need!”

5/26/19 from Lee, an AirBNB guest:  "Our stay in the Blue Ridge cottage was fabulous!  We had twelve family members together to celebrate our daughter's college graduation. The property was simply perfect for our needs and made it easy for all of us to enjoy being together. There is more than ample space for a large group and it never felt like we were on top of each other. The bedroom suites are spacious, quiet, and provided any privacy that might have been needed. This property would be perfect for corporate retreats/meetings, any large family gathering, or a group of friends in town for a game, concert, etc. Karen was a terrific host, very responsive, and offered several recommendations to enjoy the local scene in Chapel Hill. I not only recommend this property, I encourage anyone visiting the area to make it a priority for your trip.”

5/17/19 from Richard R, a VRBO guest:  "Perfect for large families.  We stayed here for the weekend during our son’s graduation from UNC. It’s a great place for large groups with each bedroom setup for total privacy, plus large communal living areas. Plus, we were very pleased that the house came with lots of breakfast options in the kitchen. We really enjoyed relaxing on the huge porch, that looks out over the golf course. Karen was very accommodating and ready to help. We would definitely recommend this house very highly.

5/3/19 from Cary, an AirBNB guest:  "House was perfect for the sales meeting we had. Projector and white board worked perfectly! Great spot and highly recommend."

4/29/19 from Matthew, an AirBNB guest:  "Close family and wedding party stayed here for my brother’s wedding.  We could not of had a better time.  The house hit all the right notes and was the perfect place. Everyone was blown away.  I would definitely recommend this house for any large family events in the area where you want to keep everyone under one roof."

4/28/19 from Tiffancy, an AirBNB guest:  "Great home for a big group. It was the perfect mix of private suites with common space to meet and enjoy each other’s company."

3/31/19 from Karen T, a VRBO guest:  "Great house great help.  We had our women’s church retreat at this house and it was just the right amount of space for the amount of women we had. The kitchen was stocked with breakfast items and a Keurig coffee maker. The living room /dining room area was connected and it was great for us to be able to sit and connect with each other in the same space. Karen and her assistant Alex were extremely helpful answering my questions even though they were redundant at times! :). And Alex got us started well. Highly recommend the property and anything that care Karen might administer.

3/29/19 from Kevin, an AirBNB guest:  "This is a perfect location for a company retreat or large group gathering. The home is very open and welcoming."

3/25/19 from Jim K, a VRBO guest:  "First class property.  I am a Regional sales Manager for a large international Corporation. I conducted a Sales meeting with my team at this corporate cottage. My team stayed there and we did our meeting at the property. The meeting space was huge and First class. My team commented that it was the best place we ever stayed at for a meeting. If you are a manager and want to do a retreat or a meeting this venue will provide an environment that will enhance anything you at trying to accomplish. Karen is also very accommodating and very easy to work with.

2/20/19 from Aanand, an AirBNB guest:  "Perfect place for a big gathering. The house was very spacious with a lot of common areas for us to gather and have fun. Karen was very responsive and was available through phone throughout our stay. She made sure we were comfortable and all our needs were addressed. Would definitely recommend this place!"

10/15/18 from Decarlo, an AirBNB guest:  "This was thee best experience in North Carolina we as a family had, and I appreciate Karen’s prompt services, to me and my family. Thank you again Ms. Karen me and my family thank you for making our stay as good as it was."

10/8/18 from Megan, an AirBNB guest:  "We went here to gather with a few friends after our wedding reception to catch up and play some board games. The place was perfect for what we wanted! Lots of table and seating space and places for everyone to sleep after. There was a little trouble with the internet at first and Karen sent an IT guy right over even though it was relatively late. Overall, a great experience and perfect for what we wanted!"
