About Durenda WIlson
My husband and I have been married for 30 years. We have 8 children. 6 are grown and out of the house and we have 6 grandkids. We love spending time with our family! In May of 2017, we moved across the country from WA state to beautiful Mt. Airy (Mayberry), NC. We bought two great old houses. We renovated one (Wilson Cottage Korner St) and we have been hosting guests there since July 2017! It was a family project and it was fun watching our little home transformed by our own hands with a lot of sweat and hard work. This particular location (Church St, built in 1924) has been open since August of 2018. Our guests are loving the homey feel and big wrap-around front porch! We have loved our rental home experience so far! We have the BEST guests ever!
Durenda WIlson purchased this House in 2017
Why Durenda WIlson chose Mount Airy
Wilson Cottage (Church St) is located just a few blocks from Wally's Service Station, a popular attraction for Andy Griffith fans that boasts a gift shop, Mayberry Squad Car Tours, and a replica of the Mayberry Courthouse. The historic downtown area is just 2 blocks away where guests will find popular attractions: Snappy Lunch, souvenir/gift shops, ice cream shops, Andy Griffith Museum and more!
What makes this House unique
Wilson Cottage (Church St) is within walking distance to Wally's Service Station, Squad Car Tours, and the old Courthouse, with tree-lined streets and beautiful old houses along the way! It is also only 2 blocks from The Andy Griffith Museum and historic downtown Mt. Airy! It's great if you want to avoid trying to avoid parking during heavy tourist times! Our guests have enjoyed having the close proximity to all the fun and activities, but just a short walk to our quiet little neighborhood!

Home away from home
This charming house made us feel like we had walked back in time. It was comfortable and homey, and we had everything we needed to relax and enjoy seeing the sites and surrounding area. It was a bit challenging to share one bathroom, however, we made it work. It would’ve been nice to have a TV in the living room to watch a movie together instead of in our separate rooms. Overall, it was a great house and we would come back again. The hosts were very friendly, accommodating and non-intrusive.
My sisters and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was perfect for our needs - clean, well-appointed and spacious. Some wonderful touches made it very homey. Just a few blocks from Mt. Airy's historical district. It was a very nice visit.
We absolutely loved it
Everything was great .. easy access to shopping and all the sites
Comfortable house, convenient location.
Lots of room...the entire first floor of the house, including living room, dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms, and bath. Very quiet. Great location, walking distance to downtown. Even a kitty on the porch!
Meeting with old friends in Mt Airy. Excellent location to downtown with only very short walk. House is roomy and very homey. Reminds me of days at grandma’s house. Big front porch to just relax. Owners very friendly and accommodating
We are located in the home town of Andy Griffith. We have a quaint historic downtown area, The Andy Griffith Museum, and Wally's Service Station. We also have wineries close by.
