Contest Winners Visit The Carolina Inn

My wife and I were recent winners of 4 nights accommodation at the CI and 3 rounds of golf. We knew from looking at the web site that it was going to be nice but we had no idea how nice. The Inn was elegant as expected but the town and the campus surroundings were also terrific. The Golf courses we played were all excellent and the weather made it so special. As we recently celebrated our 46th anniversary, we decided to have a special night at the Inn with dinner at the Crossroads Restaurant. We were certainly not dissappointed. As we have family in Charlotte, we were able to visit them and spend some more time in the south end of N.C. but after all the years and visits to Charlotte, we now know that there is so much more here to see and do and we will be back. We thank all of those concerned for their hospitality.

Return Visit to The Inn - Sixty Years Later

Dear Mark, We wish to express to to you our genuine heartfelt thanks for your most gracious hospitality extended to us in the celebration of our 60th Wedding Anniversary on September 8th, 2008. The elegant and beautifully appointed King Suite, the great refreshment tray you sent by room service, the delicious dinner prepared by the Executive Chef and the book - The History of The Carolina Inn has made our celebration such a memorable occasion. Thank you for all the details you took care of. What a joy to meet you! You made so much of your time available to us, never hurried, you made us feel like royalty! All the staff made us feel so welcomed and so special. The return to The Carolina Inn for our 60th Anniversary was indeed a highlight of our 60 years together. We shall not soon forget the part you had in making it an Anniversary to remember and we are eternally grateful to you. Our Sincere Appreciation, John and Clara Privott Rocky Mount, NC

September 5, 1948

Dear Manager: My wife and I were married on September 5th, 1948 and spent our honeymoon night at The Carolina Inn. I was a student and worked in the cafeteria. When we arrived - we checked in and made our way to our assigned room, we opened the door and were shocked to see two twin beds. So you know what happened next? My wife sent me back to the desk and the clerk was very understanding and immediately changed rooms for us. We want to come back to the Inn on September 5th, 2008 - to spend the night sixty years later. I'm enclosing a copy of the original paid bill of $7.00 and I'm wondering whether or not you would let us have a room for $7.00 - the price we paid sixty years ago. Please let me hear from you by return mail. Sincerely, John W. Privott PS: A copy of the 1948 bill is enclosed
