Treehouse Vineyards in Monroe, North Carolina
As a kid growing up on a farm in eastern North Carolina, Phil Nordan built many treehouses. In the spring of 1999, He decided it as time to build a treehouse for adults - for my wife, Dianne, and me. This treehousee sits 30 feet in the air and the lower level as a treehouse for our daughter when she was little. Since that time, we have received a lot of attention from newapapers and national magazines about our treehousee. It is equipped with a double bed, ceiling fan, couch, an outdoor fireplace, phone, rocking chairs, and much more. The two porches allow breathtaking view of the vineyards, our pond, and our horses. In 2004, we decided that it was time to plant a vineyard in Monroe, NC. This was the beginning of Treehouse Vineyards. We planted our first vines in the spring of 2005. Since that time, we have planted eight varieties of Muscadines. Complete Story and Photos

The Haunted Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill, NC
Built in 1924 by university trustee John Sprunt Hill, along with alumnus and local businessmen, Tthe Carolina Inn was constructed to be a first-rate establishment accommodating visitors and graduates of the UNC Chapel Hill Institution. The design was most interesting, combining classic elegance with Georgian style that was meant to mirror the facade of the George Washington’s home at Mt. Vernon. The Carolina Inn, voted one of America’s Top 10 Haunted Hotels by, invites guests to spend an evening with its longtime resident ghost, Dr. William Jacocks. A friendly spirit, he enjoys playing practical jokes on those who stay in what was once Dr. Jacock’s permanent home, Room 256. Complete Story and Photos
