About Early Inn

Tucked behind the pines, this 1854 Greek-Revival boutique hotel rests on 10 scenic acres covered in brilliantly colored wildflowers. When you first arrive, you will be greeted with the burst of the bright red shutters contrasting the cool greens surrounding the home. Tall deep-rooted trees stand, circling the hotel creating a spotlight of sunshine, highlighting the property’s most mesmerizing features.

Put your legs up in our library with a good book, spend an afternoon out on our patio enjoying drinks from our Breezeway Bar, or gather with friends around the fire pit for s’mores. The possibilities are endless.

While you wander the property, you’ll be comforted by the sound of birds singing and the breeze lightly hustling the trees. When you make your way under the spacious stone-paved tent, you will notice the panoramic view of our grounds, incorporating the grove under the tent; ideal for any event.

With six charming and spacious bedrooms, you can come for an overnight stay, a romantic-getaway for two, or book the whole property for a destination wedding. Each bedroom overlooks the grounds and provides its own experience leaving guests feeling pampered and well rested.

When you stay, dine or host an event with us, our southern hospitality will not go unnoticed. Your needs come first and we will strive to make this your home away from home.

We picked the Magnolia room. Very nice and comfy king bed, monster his and her shower room, and spacious with large plantation shuttered windows or a ton of light in the room. DTV was nice, adjustable room HVAC temp control,very high ceiling with fan. It was on a trip to see NASCAR at Matinsville...

Could not have had a better time!

Lovely house! We walked across the street for dinner, across another street for a great time at The Harvester, and then a quick walk back to the inn to visit by the fire. Everyone was very friendly, and the atmosphere was both elegant and comfortable. We will certainly be back again!

You can’t stay anywhere better in Rocky Mount

We stayed at the Inn to attend a concert at the Harvester (which is within short walking distance)and it was an amazing experience. We enjoyed every minute. I come from a hospitality background and I am hard to please when it comes to overnight accommodations...

Great Place to Stay

The house is spectacular with many rooms with old charm and character. Stayed in the Magnolia Suite and it was perfect. Big tub for my wife to soak in and nice spa shower. Breakfast was great and the staff friendly. The performance center across the street has great shows if you want something fun to do at night.
