(See Note below.) Private room+bath in the Boylan Heights historic district, easy 15-minute walk downtown, good restaurants/cafes, museums, galleries, new YMCA, Amtrak, public transport and NCSU campus. Laundry, TV, WiFi, newspapers, kitchen,...

The space
***Note*** until the City of Raleigh decides to allow renting for less time than a month, that will have to be my minimum stay at $420 (+ $120 for a 2nd person). Hope to be able to remove this notice soon. ~{8-)>

This private room+bath is in our soon-to-be 100-year old home in the Boylan Heights historic district. It's an easy 15-minute walk to downtown Raleigh, public transportation and the NCSU campus. There's a free circulator bus that goes around downtown and a similar bus at NCSU. We're also a few blocks from the Amtrak train station. It's a 20-minute drive from the airport to our home. There are many great restaurants in the nearby Morgan St., Glenwood South (which has a Zipcar site), and Warehouse District and in downtown plus our neighborhood Boylan Brewpub (currently closed for repairs) just a few blocks away with an outdoor deck and view of downtown Raleigh. There's a large shared HDTV with 15-20 channels, plus wifi and laundry on 2nd floor. Do-it-yourself breakfast (juice, good granola/yogurt, eggs, toast or bread, jams, etc.) and coffee and tea are available.

The cluttered main floor guestroom has small desk, double sleeper sofa, attached private bath, and shared closet. Includes utilities, main floor common rooms, laundry and kitchen privileges. Parking on street or off alley; city bus-line stops 2 blocks away. Guests OK but no smokers, please (allergic). I'm a former NCSU math instructor (widower, semi-retired) and my lady friend, who shares the house with me, is an NCSU nurse. We look forward to welcoming you.

Guest access
Laundry, TV, WiFi, newspapers, kitchen, downstairs living space... I try to maintain a relaxed and casual atmosphere which may not suit the hyper-fastidious.

Other things to note
After a recent guest, I should mention my allergy to perfumes, colognes, hairspray, etc., and so prefer people not to use them, except perhaps in the downstairs bathroom with the door shut and exhaust fan running, thanks.

After another recent guest, please note under House Rules "Food storage and preparation, eating and garbage disposal should only be in the kitchen/dining area." Old houses in the South must deal with "water bugs" which are endemic in warm weather. Keeping food in the kitchen/dining area helps.

Big, old trees and interesting mix of architectures and neighbors, many connected to NCSU. Besides the YMCA, there's Pullen Park with a fancy, new natatorium, open year-round and cheap. Our Boylan Brew Pub rates highly with guests. A 5k jogging route begins and ends at my door, with much of it feeling like shaded country lane.

During your stay
I'm used to sharing the kitchen, living spaces and upstairs laundry. The weather's usually nice, and there are good cafes nearby. Also nearby is a very good (old $$, new bldg) YMCA with monthly rates scaled to income and, of course, our art, history and science museums and galleries.
