FARMSTEAD LODGING ON THE CAROLINA COASTAL PLAIN

A Williamston, NC Bed & Breakfast Near Greenville, NC

Farmstead Lodging on North Carolina's Inner Banks

Big Mill sits amid acres of farmland and forest in the heart of the Inner Banks — the quiet coastal plain of eastern North Carolina. It's quality lodging in a peaceful setting that's just minutes from major highways and about two hours from Raleigh, NC and Norfolk, VA. A lush landscape where streams and rivers meander through cypress swamps and fertile farmland.

Don't forget your camera. There are plenty of photo-ops.

Much more than just a place to stay. With over 200 acres of grounds, you can walk through the landscaped gardens, explore the original farm outbuildings and wander through woodlands. Shaded by stately, ninety-year-old pecan trees that were planted by the owner’s parents, this Williamston Bed and Breakfast is in the original farmstead that has been in the family since 1920.

A choice of five guest rooms or suites – all with private entrances and spectacular lake views. One suite is for long-term rental and has a kitchen. Also ask about long-term rental in our Air Stream.

A delicious continental breakfast is served in your room and consists of Chloe’s homemade bread and jams, quiches made with local sausage, homemade yogurt and fruits grown in the Big Mill orchard- all with at least one edible flower.

Staying at Big Mill is not 'roughing it.' This idealized retreat offers what can only be called country luxury. Read what our guests say about their stay at Big Mill.
