Description of the Greensboro vacation home rental
Simply stunning - a truly green vacation home - miles above the ordinary. Surrounded by a gorgeous hardwood forest - gives one a sense of being up in the mountains - yet less than 10 minutes to downtown Greensboro. If you love a clean, uncluttered modern environment - then this contemporary, light-filled home is ideal.

Ideal for professionals and/or retirees transitioning to the area, visitors who seek a lovely central NC location, birders, wildlife/nature photographers, or those simply seeking a quiet retreat. Thinking of moving to NC? Come stay here and explore the state. This is an ideal enviroment for creative projects, professional and personal retreats. This a great choice for visiting your relatives in the area - feels like home!

If you are in the midst of "house building limbo" (in transition between selling and buying) then our modern, furnished home can serve as the ideal solution.

Fully furnished, well appointed with elegant bedding, very comfortable beds, plush towels & towel warmers, all appliances, etc. Incredibly lovely place.
Area Information
The Greater Greensboro Area is the epicenter of the Piedmont Triad - a dynamically growing, beautiful place to visit on vacation, live fulltime or keep a second home for those who flee from northern winters! Wonderful cultural and natural delights abound in this area, plus you have easy access to the Appalachian Mountains and the Coast of North Carolina. Fine restaurants, world class golfing, ACC sports, the International Home Furnishings Market and The Eastern Music Festival.

We are home to several outstanding Universities and Colleges - this area offers world class musical events (such as The Eastern Music Festival at Guilford College.)

Greensboro's history includes a pivotal site in the dawn of the Civil Rights Movement in America. The original downtown Woolworth's lunch counter is now in the process of becoming a civil rights museum.

Greensboro's downtown district is experiencing a renaissance and is quite a lively place for music, food, galleries, etc, especially on the weekends. Our property is approximately 10 minutes from downtown Greensboro (yet a world away!)

Our lovely home and surrounding property: Our photos tell it the best - this home is located in a gorgeous southern hardwood forest, and the river hosts all kinds of beautiful and fascinating plants and animals. This is a birder's paradise, as well as those who seek tranquility and privacy for rest and rejuvenation with all the joys of a vibrant center of culture & commerce just minutes away.

Relaxing Vacation in Greensboro

May 31, 2014

We spent 9 very relaxing days at the Passive Solar Home in Greensboro, NC. Nestled right along a slow moving river with abundant trees and foliage enabled our dogs to enjoy the large open deck while we curled-up on the screened porch to catch up on reading and just relaxing in the fresh air. It was wonderful not hearing noisy traffic sounds or having to listen to people running up and down halls like you would in a hotel. The owners are wonderful and provide a well-appointed house with all the creature comforts of home. We will definitely look to stay again if our travels put us in the Greensboro area for a length of time in the future.

The home was convenient in location, relaxing and well equipped with needed items. We had a few questions after arriving and they were answered quickly and completely. I would consider renting again - perhaps in summer so the acreage would be in bloom.

Beautiful Setting, Comfortable Home!

October 24, 2011

If you 're looking for an option other than a hotel, we would recommend this house! The property is secluded enough that we saw deer one day and duck enjoying a swim in the "back yard" river another day. It's an easy, manageable drive to downtown Greensboro if needed. The house is charming, comfortable and clean. A wonderful place to relax and enjoy nature!

River House in Greensboro

March 21, 2010

This is a thoroughly delightful dwelling in an idyllic setting. We felt as if we were in the deep woods and yet we were only 5 minutes from the freeway. We golfed, walked the neighborhood, watched deer and songbirds and tramped through the woods The property size is 13 acres. The kitchen is very well set up and we enjoyed the deck and balcony when weather cooperated.
