Security at the Bayberry: The Bayberry House Bed and Breakfast is a collection of four private residences around the corner of North Fourth Street and Madison Avenue in the North Fourth Street Historic District. I live on site in the yellow house behind the Mansion and Westfall House and across from the parking area at the Garrett House. The historic area on North Fourth Street has lots of families with children and is a nice residential district with some small professional offices as well. On each side of the inn there is a family living so the area is active with people doing everyday things. Doors are kept locked and you are asked to lock the front door as you come and go.  Outdoor video surveillance is on 24/7 and we are generally always around.

Extended Stay at the Bayberry House B&B:  We offer a good discounted extended stay rate, plus tax, per night for one person, for those staying 15 or more days, call me if you are staying more than 30 days and we can do a monthly rate:
