Entry Foyer – the home’s interior has five window bays, hand-stripped wood floors, horse-hair plaster walls and an eclectic mix of furnishings ranging from period antiques to contemporary including fine art paintings from Plum Tree Gallery. Nationally certified designer Joanne Lesak, MFA Environmental Design, used an intimate palette to enhance the non-chemical and non-smoking environment maintained by Plum Tree Gardens.

The formal Living Room with its large wood panel doors and period antiques, looks out onto the front wrap-around porch, past the grand old magnolia, to the Plum Tree Gallery gardens.

Guests may enjoy relaxing in front of a toasty wood-burning fireplace. They may opt for balmy breezes on the front porch with antique oak furniture.

Paintings shown in the living and dining rooms are by
American Indian expressionist Dreamweaver, who paints
subjects from nature in watercolor. His poster, which won the North Carolina Native American Heritage Month award in 2006, may be seen in the foyer with his photographs and pieces from Plum Tree Garden’s artist purchase awards collection.

The formal dining room is reserved for special events. It adjoins a full kitchen and butler’s pantry. The five-bay window overlooks a Borden family home that was built for their son, whereas, the less formal Daniels-Stenhouse was built for their daughter.

Guest Review

After more than twenty years of traveling “home” to Goldsboro to visit family and friends, I can honestly say that I’ve stayed in all of the decent motels in town,…repeatedly. Before my trip this past October, I decided on a whim, to search the internet and found, to my surprise, the Plum Tree Gardens Bed and Breakfast.

My four night stay in the Cactus Room was both relaxing and refreshing. After a long day of visiting with my dear relatives, I retreated into my comfy room, graced with the old world charm of hardwood floors, a five-window bay, and wood burning fireplace. Each morning I dined on robust ground coffee, a good sized bowl of freshly cut fruit, and delicious homemade muffins,…all discreetly placed in my room the previous afternoon.

The owners, Joanne and Dreamweaver, welcomed me with casual Southern graciousness and hospitality, and yet, I felt as if I was in my own world (unlike other B&Bs where I’ve somehow felt the caretakers were a bit too close by).

My family roots in Wayne County run strong and deep, so many years of visits are yet to come, and I know that each time, I’ll be staying in the Plum Tree Gardens Bed and Breakfast.
