Take a step back in time with this modernized mid-century gem of a hotel. Originally a 1960s travel lodge, The Longleaf Hotel has been updated to keep its charm while providing upgraded amenities to its guests. Each room is fitted with longleaf wallpaper, shibori-dyed throw pillows and robes, and other fun touches designed by local artisans. Guests can enjoy complimentary Counter Culture coffee and snack of Union Special pastries.
We’re obsessed with The Longleaf Lounge, slinging classic cocktails, local beers, fine wine, and their specialty, vermouth-based cocktails. Not to mention some tasty snacks because you shouldn’t drink on an empty stomach!
