Star Hotel Bed & Breakfast is a historic site, completely
renovated in 2004, located right in the southern heart of North
Carolina. Built in 1896, The Star Hotel Bed and Breakfast was
located at the junction of two major railways in North Carolina.
Where the North/South railway met the East/West railway, many
times the passengers would get off the train and would have to
spend the night to wait for the train to pass the next day. Even
though they didn't call it a Bed & Breakfast Back in those
days, in essence it was exactly that. People would spend the night,
wake up and eat breakfast and take off again. Now in 2006, The
Star Hotel Bed and Breakfast is still the perfect place to stay,
with Pinehurst and Troy only a short driving distance away as
well as Charlotte, Greensboro, and Raleigh all within equal distance.
Star Hotel Bed and Breakfast offers a charming, down-home, friendly
atmosphere for you to sit and relax when you just want to get away
from it all! You can also take advantage of the many nearby activities
that the area has to offer such as swimming, water skiing, fishing
and boating on Lake Tillery near the surrounding Uwharrie National
Forest, where you can go horse-back riding, hiking, hunting, canoeing,
off-roading, and recreational panning for gold at Reed's Gold Mine!
A visit to Town Creek Indian Mound offers a glimpse of pre-Columbian
life which brings to life a rich cultural heritage from the buried
past. There is the nearby North Carolina Zoo as well as some of
the best golfing in the world in the nearby town of Pinehurst which
was host to last years 2005 Men's US Open.
Star Hotel Bed and Breakfast is also located within 10 miles of
world famous Seagrove, the pottery capital of North Carolina. Seagrove
is one of the largest potter communities in the United States. Traditional
pottery has been made in the Seagrove area since the late 1700's,
and is the home to over one-hundred different potters. All styles
of pottery and ceramic art are represented, perfect for the casual
shopper or the serious collector. Along with countless pottery studios
and galleries scattered on NC Hwy 705, Seagrove is also the home
of The North Carolina Pottery Center. A great place to view exhibits,
learn the history of local potters and purchase local work.
