    Very relaxing atmosphere. Staff extremely accommodating. Great location. Heart of Chapel Hill. Limited in house food services. Comfortable rooms quiet. Lots of great nearby restaurants. Convinient parking.

    When I was there I did a run roughly following the Pumpkin Loop in the Carolina North Forest. You can just Google for it. That was a nice run in forest surroundings, slightly hilly, relatively smooth gravel surface.
