the Civil War, the Murray House has been a part
of eastern North Carolina’s landscape. It is perhaps
the finest example of high-style Greek revival architecture
in Duplin County, an area distinctive for its wealth
of mid-nineteenth century Greek revival buildings.
It is this grand architecture nestled in a quiet,
rural setting, which inspired Lynn and Joe Davis
to begin a country inn in 1994.
Today the Murray House Country Inn offers 13
guest rooms and suites as well as facilities
for small meetings and weddings. All of the guest
rooms have private baths, most with Jacuzzi tubs,
desks, wireless internet access, TVs, swimming pool making
it a popular destination for the discriminating
business traveler and those seeking a romantic getaway.
A formal boxwood garden comprised of over 400 boxwoods
connects the original antebellum home to the carriage
house built in 1997 and houses 6 guest rooms.
Perennials, annuals, and bulbs planted in
the English cottage style surround the walkways
The Blount House, built in 1850, was moved to the Murray House and renovated in 2003. There are three great rooms, each with private baths, in this historic building.
Come and relax in this quiet country setting and
experience Southern hospitality at its finest!
