The current inn owners, decided to expand their property capacity at the Heart & Soul Bed and Breakfast in spite of Covid-19. In honor of the original owner, William E. Merritt, who built the home in 1901, the Merritt Suite, now expands the number of available bedrooms from 5 suites to 6 suites as of January 2021. This new addition is a 15ft x 10ft master suite with a spacious 19.5ft x 10ft en suite bathroom. Added value to an already "Certificate of Excellence Award Winner" by Trip Advisor for the past 5 years!
Originally built in 1901 by JA Tesh, for entrepreneur William E. Merritt of Mount Airy who's interests helped develop the town. Now operating as a bed and breakfast, the owners restored the property to original elegance and charm, true to its history. Also located on the grounds, is a one bedroom innkeeper's house. The owners are including the 1939 Fleetwood Imperial Cadillac, 7 seats with jump seats, 350 Buick V-8 engine, 3-speed transmission, AC, Heat, satellite radio, GPS and mobile phone.
