James and Amanda Keith moved to Greensboro in 2006 to complete graduate work at UNC-Greensboro. They soon purchased a home in the nearby College Hill Historic District, where they learned the art (and trials) of restoration. In 2016, they purchased Double Oaks with the vision to open the home to the community as a bed & breakfast to share the joys of historic living with others. Double Oaks has grown organically into a community gathering spot for great food and drink, excellent music by local musicians, and so much more thanks to the incredible friends and neighbors who have supported us along the way.
James and Amanda are currently restoring another historic landmark, North Carolina's oldest hotel, the NuWray Hotel, in Burnsville, NC.
