About Our Accommodations in Mount Airy, NC
The Vermeer Bed & Breakfast is situated within walking distance of historic downtown Mount Airy, also known as “Main Street, USA.”
Main Street features a step back in time with old-fashioned diners, ice cream and candy shops but is also home to microbreweries and upscale restaurants.
This beautifully restored circa 1886 Queen Anne Victorian has ties to the Katherine Smith Reynolds family. The Vermeer Bed & Breakfast houses the EG Shubert Studio. The B&B derives its name from Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer, who was an innkeeper himself. Whether you are an artist or a fan of the arts, you will enjoy the art and pottery displayed throughout the inn. Enjoy painting plein air? Feel free to bring your easel and paints and take in the beautiful North Carolina vistas while you are here.
The Vermeer Bed & Breakfast is located just 10 minutes from Blue Ridge Parkway and Virginia, and Pilot Mountain, NC, which makes it ideal for day trips. Staying local? Use our complimentary bikes, kayaks, and golf clubs.
Meet the Innkeepers – Elbert and Linda Shubert fell in love with Mount Airy and instantly knew this circa 1886 Queen Anne Victorian farmhouse would be the perfect site for a bed and breakfast. They hope you love it as well.
Linda has deep roots in North Carolina as well as family ties to Mount Airy. Returning to NC after a number of years living in Florida, she feels at home in this community with a “small town feel.”
Elbert is an artist, and many of his works can be found throughout the inn. His studio is located on the first floor of The Vermeer Bed & Breakfast, and you will find him there working on various projects.
