Welcome To The Pender House A Historic Boutique Hotel in Burgaw, North Carolina
Welcome to The Pender House, formerly known as The Black Hotel, Burgaw’s original inn. Believed to be constructed in 1896 one block from the historic train depot, The Black Hotel originally served as an inn and as the social hub of the community. Freshly restored in 2022, The Pender House, a traditional American Foursquare, is now back to its original purpose with a rich history. We invite you to book a stay with us, while visiting beautiful Burgaw, North Carolina!
Larry Owens, a local business owner, admired the blue house from his office window for a few years before he and his wife, Beth, purchased the house in the spring of 2021. Initially the use of the house was uncertain, the Owenses only knew they wanted to save a piece of Burgaw’s history. After discovering the house’s history as The Black Hotel, the Owenses knew that the property was destined to serve the community once again as a hotel. Larry and Beth have enjoyed the process of restoring and furnishing the home over the past year with the help of two dedicated craftsmen and hope that guests will find it as warm and inviting as their own.
The Pender House History From Then to Now
After a year of restoration and careful reconstruction, The Pender House is ready to give guests who share our love of history and architecture an opportunity to stay in one of the original hotel rooms. The four upstairs rooms are largely original and have access to two hall baths. The four downstairs rooms have been converted into two suites that include a parlor and private bath. A kitchen, sunroom and porches are available to enjoy during your stay.
The rooms in The Pender House have been named to honor communities in Pender County. All rooms have their original hardwood floors and are furnished with antiques and vintage items the Owenses have found over the years. Wi-Fi is available in each room. Each suite occupation max is 2 people.
