Property Description
Unique 3-story inn in picturesque Mayodan! Situated in a prime downtown location near the scenic Mayo River, the Mayodan Hotel has played a prominent role in town with its origins as a modest two-story home to the Lewis family and gradually evolving into its current 26 rooms. Archival photographs, extensive history, floor plans, and a hotel feasibility study are available to assist in rehabilitation project.

Since its origins as a modest two-story house, the Mayodan Hotel has been central to the history of this picturesque River town. The house and over 300 acres was sold in 1891 by the Lewis family to the Piedmont Land and Manufacturing Company which would develop the area into a town to support its Mayo Mill operation. During this period, the property would serve as the first post office, a boarding house, and site of services for the Moravian Church until its construction. By 1912, the property was known as the “Mayodan Hotel” and had greatly expanded to include several more guest rooms, dining services, and a double front porch. The third floor was added by 1920. Owned by Washington Mills for many years, the property was sold to the Holt family in 1955 who continued to rent out rooms until the 1990s.

For many years the Mayodan Hotel has served as a hub of community activity and the site to many important local functions and visits by notable North Carolinians. Its historical use as a hotel can once again become a reality as new industry and recreational tourism in the area grows and demand for hotel rooms increases. The potential exists to transform this 3-story Victorian-era inn into a boutique hotel, bed and breakfast inn, and/or special events/catering facility. Built in several stages, the building has over 6,000 square feet and 26 rooms and 4 bathrooms. The main section has three stories with two-story wings. The building is in good structural condition and would benefit from an updated heating and air conditioning system, removal of asbestos shingles and repair of clapboard siding underneath, restoration of the 3-story porch, and re-working some of the existing rooms to accommodate additional bathrooms for overnight lodging purposes. Archival photos and floor plans are available to assist with the development of rehabilitation plans along with a hotel feasibility study demonstrating a need for an increase in local overnight lodging facilities and special events venues.

The Mayodan Hotel is within a proposed National Register Historic District on the Study List. Once listed it will be eligible for federal preservation tax credits.
