Family Friendly Rentals

Our goal is simple: make traveling with the little ones easier. Though all of our spaces are family friendly, three of our homes were specifically curated with families in mind: The Country CottageLyric at Leiper’s Fork, and Lunar Beach Bungalow.

Each of these single level homes has been intentionally designed to balance style with function and approachability for our littlest guests and their caregivers. 

Peace of Mind for the Family

Safety is top of mind when it comes to welcoming families. We go the extra mile to think of things like soft corners, keeping chemicals up high, and maintaining safety certifications for each of our homes. Just a little caveat that we know kids are curious and tend to want to explore – especially in new spaces. While we take a variety of safety precautions, they are not meant to replace caregiver attention.

“We had a wonderful stay at Lyric. The property is exactly as pictured. Our group included three families staying together. We all have young children and valued the space for them to play, plus the provided baby supplies like high chairs, baby monitor, etc, so we didn't have to pack them ourselves.”
