  • Introduction

    The Inn at Bingham School front of inn

    Eleven miles west of Chapel Hill, the Inn at Bingham School offers southern hospitality at its finest. Furnished in period antiques, the Inn at Bingham School is nestled among pecan trees in the rolling farmland of central North Carolina.

    A combination of Greek and Federal styles, the Inn offers five spacious guestrooms with modern private baths.

    Operating from 1845-1865, the Bingham School served as a preparatory school for young men seeking entrance to the University of North Carolina at nearby Chapel Hill. Although the school itself is no longer standing, the headmaster's home, listed in the National Historic Registry, has received an award for its meticulous restoration. Your hosts, the Deprez family, invite you to step back in time...

    • Relax on one of our porches after roaming the surrounding acres of woodland. Join in a game of croquet or find peace gently swinging in one of our hammocks.
    • Or spend your time indoors curling up with a good book, playing games in the parlor or watching a movie from our video collection.
    • Whatever the choice, welcome the evening over complimentary wine and cheese with your hosts.

    We are a wonderful home base for whatever your needs. Use our central location to explore the Raleigh/Durham area, Burlington outlet shopping, historic Hillsborough and Research Triangle Park. If you are here on business we offer a quiet place to work and a home away from home. Or if you just need to abandon the world for some relaxation and pampering, stay with us awhile.

    " a dream, another time, another place...relaxed and unhurried...enchanting setting...meals were wonderful...attention to detail...François and Christina made us feel right at home...chockfull of history and personality...we'll definitely be back!"
