The Shaffner Inn

Why We Love It

We love that the Shaffner Inn has retained historic charm while expanding to include modern amenities. They offer a complimentary wine/beer + cheese tasting each night and full breakfast each morning for their guests. Their space is also perfect for hosting a multitude of events including weddings, showers, business meetings and more.


Built in 1907 as the private residence of Henry Fries Shaffner, the co-founder of Wachovia Loan and Trust, this extravagant Victorian-style mansion boasts Tiger oak hand-carved paneling, original coal-burning fireplaces, a grand staircase and priceless antiques.� This 8-bedroom inn is perfect for quiet nights away or corporate and private events. Located in downtown Winston-Salem, it is walking-distance to a multitude of the city�s best restaurants, bars and shops.
