Cousin Emma's Bed and Breakfast in Mount Airy (Mayberry) North Carolina is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, residence in town. It recently was purchased by Mount Airy native Emma Suzanne Lewis Brown, who after some forty years has returned to her roots to lovingly restore a pre-Civil War historic home right on "Main" Street. Providing all the modern conveniences, it still retains its unique yesteryear appeal.
You will LOVE Cousin Emma's - comfortable, convenient, clean, and overflowing with charm. Rarely is it quiet due to the laughter and stories being told by both locals and travelers.
We are currently open all year round and are available to host a variety of small celebrations, pot lucks, local art shows, or other events. Just call ahead or stop by (even with short notice) and we can provide you with a great hometown experience.
Cousin Emma's hosts high tea, which includes a historic house tour and some fabulous tales for only $10 per person. There is also an on-going Reiki group that meets regularly and if you are staying with us and interested in relaxing at a nearby spa, Cousin Emma's has discount coupons available. Contact us for more information and reservations.
It has been a trying time and Cousin Emma misses everyone. We are still closed to guests due to the pandemic, but hope to open back soon. We also want to continue hosting small events so keep an eye out here for more information.
