Step through the front entry of this Tudor Revival mansion and see the unique Italian marble fireplace, ten foot tall ceilings, and a magnificent staircase surrounded by hand carved black walnut walls.

    The wide porch overlooks the original terraced gardens, which features a columned pergola. From here you can catch the mountain breezes blowing up from the Blue Ridge Mountains or watch the spectacular sunsets against the Carolina blue sky. There are plenty of chairs available to relax.

  • Sobotta Manor History

    Hosts and Ghosts

    Step back in time to early 1900's Mount Airy, NC and envision yourself as a "well to do family" during this era. Come to visit and stay in the Sobotta family home as our guest. Enjoy the beautiful rare architecture of the building while living inside with authentic, old period pieces from America and Europe, but updated with modern amenities.

    The home was built in 1932 by John Sobotta and stayed in the family until September of 2004 when it was sold to Thurman and Robin Hester. Mr. Sobotta's portrait still hangs in the living room. In recent years, his son, David, and his family strictly used the house as their second home. Many antiques were left in the house by the Sobotta family as they felt the pieces "belonged to the house." A petticoat table, as well as a tapestry chair, and four occasional tables designed specifically for this home were all left with the house.

    Meet The Innkeepers

    Thurman and Robin Hester have spent the last year restoring their Italianate Tudor Revival home to a beautiful Bed and Breakfast. Thurman and Robin former Real Estate Investors and Managers have always worked in service-oriented careers. When they first saw the Sobotta Home, they knew this was the fulfillment of their dream; to own and operate a respite for guests to find peace, serenity and comfort; away from their stressful lives.

    Thurman and Robin have two adult children; a son Charles and daughter and son in law Rebecca and Tomas, who reside in Tampa Florida, and our youngest son an inspiration to live and fulfill our dreams, always a precious memory Christopher our guardian angel.

    And our resident pets and greeters, two spoiled but loving Bichon Frise Clayton and Cher.

    Meet the Sobotta Family

    Mr. John Sobotta was one of Mount Airys most prominent citizens. Johns Sobotta retired as the vice president of National Furniture Company where it is believed that his career was the longest in the American wood working industry.

    A native of Germany, he moved with his family to the United States in 1880. He went to work in a furniture factory at the age of 14. He moved to Mount Airy in January 1904 to work with National Furniture, just three years after it was established.

    Mr. Sobotta was director emeritus of Workman’s Federal Savings and Loan; he was also a great benefactor to the boy scouts, constructing the John Sobotta Scout Hut at the First Presbyterian Church named in his honor. He also played a great role in the establishment of Camp Raven Knob for Boy Scouts. Mr. Sobotta made a large financial contribution to the local library foundation.

    Claire Sobotta - Not much is known about the first Mrs. Sobotta and it is hard to assemble. It has been said that she suffered from severe depression and had mental problems that created the need for round the clock nursing care. This is the nemesis’ that brought the second Mrs. Sobotta, Blanche, among many other nurses over the years to live and work here at the manor.

    Blanche Sobotta (August 22, 1910 to  March 20,  2004) in the words of her son David...

    It’s hard to describe my mother, they broke the mold when they made  her.  She was the matriarch for a large extended family which still  talks with wonder about the magnificent home on Pine Street.  We have  been able to trace the Styers family (mother’s maiden name) to  someone who it is believed fought in the Revolutionary War with the  NJ Militia.

    Blanche was born August 22, 1910 to  Sallie Jane Shore Styers andThomas Walter Styers who was a miller.  She spent her early years on a mill pond and by the age of nine was  cooking biscuits for the other five children because her mother had  died of the flu. Blanche left home at an early age and moved to Mount  Airy, NC when the town had a population of 150 people. She spent most  of her years in Mount Airy at 347 West Pine Street where she became  an accomplished gardener and created the wonderful gardens that can  still be seen each spring.

    For several years Blanche was a beautician on Main Street in Mt. Airy and later  on Styers Street in Lewisville, NC , not far from the original  location where her Grandfather Styers’ ferry crossed the Yadkin Blanche was a renowned cook, famous for her fried chicken,  pound cakes, and the peanut brittle that appeared during the holiday season. After the death of her close Mt. Airy friend, R. J. Berrier, in 2000, she moved to Roanoke to live with her son David and his wife  Glenda.

    Golfing

    Primland Golfing   [ Website ]


    The Highland Course at Primland

    There is a remoteness about Primland, a sense of escape, that is special. Golf courses have been built in every landscape imaginable, but only rarely on mountain peaks. Once I strode over the plateau at Primland, with views which reminded me of the highlands of Scotland, I knew this was the perfect spot for a truly exceptional course.

    The sharp contrasts between valleys and peaks allowed me to achieve invigorating variety throughout all 18 holes. And by stipulating close cutting around greens, using fast surface bent and fescue grasses, and designing bunkers that really are bunkers, I made this course one that will seriously challenge not only low handicap players, but the world’s top professionals as well. With course length from the black tees measuring slightly over 7,000 yards, you either drive well on The Highland Course or you perish!
