Halifax County, North Carolina

Nestled on the banks of the mighty Roanoke River, which gave rise to commerce in the area, we like to say, “rushing river water can take the edges off rocks and people.” We are confident you will find that true and that you will enjoy a relaxing event reconnecting with family members here.
