The Inn

Experience the best in Greensboro, NC, lodging! At the Greensboro Troy-Bumpas Inn bed and breakfast, four luxurious guest rooms, three common rooms and a wonderful front porch provide ample space for you to relax and unwind. Each guest room has a private bath (three with whirlpool tubs), air conditioning, fireplace, free wireless Internet access (WIFI), cable TV, DVD player, and a wonderfully comfortable queen or king bed. There’s no need to pack a hair dryer; you’ll find one in your room. The inn has secure off-street parking and a computer where you may print a boarding pass.

We personally greet our guests upon arrival to ensure you can easily get settled in. We’ll see you at breakfast, and if you need us other times, we’re easy to reach by phone number.

Enjoy a Memorable Breakfast

Your day at the Troy-Bumpas Inn begins with fresh-brewed coffee or a choice from our array of teas delivered to the second-floor guest lounge. We serve a delicious multi-course, home-cooked hot breakfast in the dining room. Menus vary daily, but we typically start with a cold buffet of fruit, juice, yogurt, granola, and freshly baked scones, muffins, quick breads or coffeecake. We follow with a delicious hot breakfast entrée. The Troy-Bumpas Inn cookbook includes a wide range of entrees — French toast, baked egg dishes, omelets, frittatas, pancakes, and waffles — served with various breakfast meats. And, we offer flexible breakfast times!

Complimentary snacks and beverages – including home-baked cookies – are available daily.

If you have specific dietary needs or preferences, please let us know in advance so we can best accommodate your needs.

Be Surrounded with History

History buffs will enjoy reflecting on the history this home has seen. Built in 1847, the home is listed on the National Historic Register and is one of twelve in Guilford County built before the Civil War that still survives. During the Civil War, Union soldiers occupied the home and used it as the Union’s Western Greensboro Headquarters. The home was owned by the same family from 1847 to 1976. To learn more, visit our History page.
