Happy House is located just off the main street in quaint Chapel Hill within walking distance to downtown. Chapel Hill is a college town, and Happy House is located in the historic downtown residential area, but we are nestled in the woods. Suggested Local Attractions:There are many local attractions associated with the University including theater, museums, university lectures, and, of course, major university sporting events. Chapel Hill is also a foodie town with many good restaurants, breweries, cocktail lounges, and dive bars. Please note that if you don’t have a Bio and Rig details on HarvestHosts we will politely decline your stay request (it’s nice to know something about our guests).

House Rules

No smoking on property. No loud music - If you can hear the music 50 feet away, it’s too loud! Smiles are important. Expect guests to leave the space as they found it. No generators. No putting trash in our garbage bin without asking us… our municipality is very picky about what they take, and I don’t enjoy having to pick out others’ trash! Our neighbors are all really nice… say hello if you see them walking.

Location

Access Road Conditions: The parking is essentially in our front driveway - a large reasonably level parking area. The challenge is access as the vehicle must be able to make a somewhat tight turn after a small hill from the road into our long driveway. All is paved. Once in the parking area there is room to maneuver. Please park relatively close to the stone wall on the left as you enter so we can still get cars and UPS deliveries in and out. You are welcome to turn around and back into that spot if you’d like the other side of your camper facing the driveway area. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Tow vehicles may be parked next to the RV. Do not use our trashcan or recycle bin without first discussing specifically with Matt or Bobbi. Chapel Hill is very stringent about what they will and will not pick up, and I especially despise pulling other peoples trash out and having to sort it!

Quiet and thoughtful. Like to mountain bike and trail run. Details: Native North Carolinian (Matt) and Texan (Bobbi), we really enjoy the outdoors. We also enjoy good meals - either cooking ourselves or finding great restaurants. During the day we typically work remotely and then play in the afternoons. Not typically early risers when at home, but in the road... we just go with the flow. Home Town: Chapel Hill, NC Favorite Boondocking Locations: BLM land in the west. Skills or Expertise to Share: Reasonably handy. Computer skills. Cooking. Matt is also a pilot.

    I had a great two nights at Happy House. Matt was a very welcoming host—communication was great and the driveway was perfect for a smaller rig. Beautiful home in an equally beuatiful neighborhood!

    Lovely quiet neighborhood near amenities. Lots of green space nearby. Didn’t get to meet our hosts but they were available to answer questions. Would stay again if in the area!

    My daughter had an exam in the area, and we didn’t want to have to drive in the wee hours of the morning. The Happy House was a great location, met our criteria, and had an opening. The hosts were away when we arrived, but all was as expected. The property was beautiful, and the kiddo and I felt super safe. This was also a great opportunity to try out my new EcoFlow Delta Pro, leaving me no need to crank on the gas generator. Hopefully we will find another occasion to visit again, with time to express our appreciation to our Hosts in person.

    A friendly host, in a gorgeous setting, close to everything. Places like this make feel bad for the big trailer folks, who will never see them. C'est la vie. Here's a few more photos of this wonderful place. The deer on the roof shot was taken from inside my van. http://us-photography.com/Travel/BW/Chapel-Hill-NC/ Thanks again !

    My stay at Happy House was perfect! Lots of room in the driveway to maneuver. The private roads are as described by the host. They were not home but we communicated by phone. Nice and quiet location but close to town. And a BIG THANK YOU for the 15A. I was able to use my AC to cool down rhe RV.
