Located on Depot Street in downtown Davidson, the Davidson Village Inn occupies the site of the former Maxwell Chambers Hotel. It fits seamlessly into the fabric of the area even though it is a new building constructed as an inn in the early 1990s. The location is convenient to restaurants and to Davidson College which is within walking distance. The inn is very popular with friends and family of students. Lake Norman is just a couple of miles away providing a variety of water activities.
The bright green canopy welcomes you as you enter into the spacious lobby/parlor. It really does look like a country house library with comfortable sofas and bookshelves. You feel welcome as soon as you enter the door.
Rooms are spread over three floors and include family rooms, king rooms, queen rooms and twin rooms. We opted for the queen room with a four poster queen bed dominating the room. The linens on the bed are luxurious and we had a great night’s sleep.
A chair for watching TV is conveniently set next to the bed.
Free Internet is provided and a desk is located in front of the windows, which are covered by plantation shutters. The flat screen TV is in the armoire and has a good selection of channels.
Rooms have individual heat and cooling control.
The sink area is outside of the bathroom itself which has a tub/shower combination. Everything was extremely clean and there were plenty of towels.
Afternoon tea is offered between 3 and 6 p.m. and complimentary breakfast is provided in the morning. If you need a snack, an honor bar offers things to eat and drink at very reasonable prices.
Breakfast is an extended continental and is one of the nicest ones this writer has ever eaten. Fresh baked pastries from Summit Coffee are offered and include croissants, turnovers, Danish, muffins, and scones. Cereal, yogurt, and boiled eggs are also available.
For those who are gluten intolerant, gluten-free cereal is out on the buffet and gluten-free bread, and waffles are available on request. Bread, pancakes, waffles, and bagels are provided under a dome near the toaster and are from Nova’s Bakery in Charlotte.
Davidson Village Inn is a warm and charming place to spend your time in Davidson. The Innkeepers are welcoming and you will definitely feel like you are visiting with friends, which explains why so many guests are return visitors.
