WIN a 2 Night Stay at Elmwood 1820 Bed & Breakfast Inn

Written by | The Lens, Things to Do

Enter to win a Two-Night stay at the beautiful Elmwood 1820 Bed & Breakfast Inn. This charming gay owned B&B is located in Washington, North Carolina. Elmwood 1820 is a gracious home, embodying a very transitional, eclectic style representative of its magnificent history, and the many adventures and world travels of its current caretakers.

Experiencing the old-fashioned hospitality of small-town life or the serenity of the great outdoors doesn’t mean hours on the road. Washington, NC is easy to reach from cities like Richmond, Raleigh, Norfolk, and Greensboro. Washington, NC boasts its own convenient municipal airport with a brand-new terminal for private plane travelers and is only 20 minutes away from the closest commercial airport.

A gourmet breakfast is prepared and served every morning or packaged for travel is necessary. Lifelong “foodies”, your hosts John and Richard strive to provide breakfast and brunch fare that goes above and beyond traditional breakfast offerings and brings you sweet and savory dishes you’re sure to enjoy. Savory chive pancakes with creme fraiche and smoked salmon have been getting rave reviews along with homemade bisquits, scones and an endless supply of Blackbeard Coffee. Personalized dietary requests are always happily honored. Richard’s silver dollar sized sweet cream biscuits are a menu staple.

It’s been nearly six years since business partners and husbands John Butler and Richard Smoot decided to swap the traffic and daily automotive horn cacophony of Washington, DC with the quiet crape myrtle-lined streets and hypnotic lapping current of Washington, NC’s Pamlico River.

Although John and Richard have the only gay-owned bed and breakfast inn in Washington, North Carolina, they join a host of other LGBTQ-owned and operated businesses and residents in the city and throughout Beaufort County, NC.
