James Bond Hidden Cottage By Wake Forest University & Downtown

Historic cottage with fitness center and outdoor tennis court
Hidden in the trees in the best part of town, the James Bond Cottage welcomes you with fun vibes. In historic upscale Buena Vista, you're an easy 5-minutes to Wake Forest University, Downtown, Trader Joe’s & Whole Foods. Walk to the famous funky Airstream for locally roasted coffee and to the gourmet bakery & wine bar. Enjoy outdoor dining at the fine dining restaurant next door. Explore tree-lined streets with grand homes built during Winston-Salem's tobacco heyday. You're close to great cuisine, shopping, and many delightful experiences. And at the same time, tucked away and private. After a fun day, turn on the magical twinkle lights and get cozy by the fire in your private hideaway with a cheeky nod to 007... ***Please contact Cara about availability for other dates. Due to Covid-19, our calendar may not provide an accurate representation of dates*** **We are following CDC Cleaning & Disinfecting Guidelines** Laid-back luxuries make this hidden retreat in the middle of the city precisely the kind of pad 007 would hang-out in, that is, if he had secret spy biz in Winston-Salem, ha! In the most posh neighborhood in our city, the cottage makes a bloody brilliant base in a highly desirable and safe area. Our area is buzzing with restaurants, shops and sights. It's the perfect place to create magical memories and experience the authentic vibes of our city. A comfy hangout for Wake Forest and UNCSA events.

5/5 Excellent

We actually live in town, but due to work on our house that was delayed, we needed to find a place to live. I want comfort and a homey feeling and that's what we got. This place is like being at home. It's so light and comfy and cozy. And it's big enough too. The kitchen is complete and the bathrooms are filled with everything you would need. You can walk and get coffee and pastries too. Cara and Dan are so nice and the perfect hosts. We couldn't ask for a better experience. This is an excellent VRBO!!!!!
