At SunnySide, we offer many amenities to help make your stay as memorable and as pleasant as possible. We feature five (5) luxurious rooms with three of these consisting of multiple bedroom suites with private bathrooms that create great flexibility for our whole-house gatherings. An Inn can never have too many bathrooms. We have two “extra” bathrooms on the second floor for use by whole house renters. We also provide towels, robes (for some suites), shampoo, conditioner, and body wash in every bathroom. All you need to bring is your toothbrush and personal care items.
Our Grand Salon (living room) features a piano bar that is stocked with all of the glassware and hardware you should need for entertaining. The automatic wine-bottle opener/recorker is a favorite of our guests. The Salon also has a small refrigerator for cooling your favorite beverages. We have family games for your enjoyment.
A favorite place to unwind after a busy day seeing all of the sights is our Sun Room. It offers the perfect venue for late night social gatherings or that early morning cup of coffee. With its wicker furniture and completely screened-in living area, you can enjoy the best of the outside while staying pest free on summer nights. If you have the time, grab a book from John’s library upstairs and spend some quality time reading.
SunnySide features almost two acres of yard space with Heigel Park next door. This park features a baseball diamond, soccer fields, sled/climbing hill for the kids, two children’s playgrounds, a covered pavilion with restrooms, a full basketball court, and two beautiful painted tennis courts. This makes SunnySide the perfect place for families to relax and have a good time exploring Catawba. In addition, we have outdoor grills, swings, a fire pit, picnic tables, an herb garden, and much more.
