The Granville Queen Inn was built for Dr. Henry Marchand Shaw Cason and his wife Alice in 1907. The house remained in the Cason family and was well maintained. In 1989-1990 the house was renovated to serve as a bed and breakfast inn. It is now one of the premier bed and breakfast inns in Northeastern North Carolina.

    Great Getaway

    My nights at the Granville Queen Inn were nights to remember. From the elegantly appointed rooms to the fabulous several course breakfasts served in the dining room or on the enclosed front porch, I loved it. The hosts, David and Dora, made me feel welcome. Home baked cookies are available in the dining room for a little snack. It is a great way to relieve work stress with a mid-week visit, or spend a weekend for a special occasion.
