The Oakwood Inn

 

Bed & Breakfast

Raleigh, North Carolina

   

 

The Oakwood Inn is easy to find. It is an easy walk to the Raleigh Visitor's Center and the Executive Mansion, home of North Carolina's governor. The twenty square blocks of the historic district display a colorful array of architectural styles, from Greek Revival to "steamboat" Gothic, providing a fascinating stroll through another time.
