We are located on the outskirts of the town of Chapel Hill, close to the city of Durham, and to Hillsborough, Carrboro, and the Research Triangle Park. The closest airport is Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU). Chapel Hill is consistently ranked as one of the best places to raise kids in the country! 

Chapel Hill calls itself ‘The Southern Part of Heaven’. As the home of the University of North Carolina, it is lively and rich in traditions, with a vibrant cultural scene and, of course, basketball! The Town of Carrboro, next door to Chapel Hill, centers around the lawn of Weaver Street market and the old Carr Mill, now restored with shops and restaurants. It is a walkable community with many locally-owned small businesses and a thriving Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Both towns have free bus service.
