Take a step back in time at the Shaffner Inn. This extravagant white and green Tudor Revival style residence was built in 1907, as a private residence for Henry Fries Shaffner, co-founder of Wachovia Loan and Trust. It boasts of elegance with its grand staircase, Tiger Oak hand-carved paneling, 9 original fireplaces, a wraparound enclosed porch, and dormer casements that emulate historic English lead-glass windows, all surrounded by handsome antiques. The Shaffner Inn is open to the public, offering 8 overnight guest rooms, meeting and event space, on-site parking and a full-service restaurant, Founders Restaurant. Winston-Salem Historic Inns, which includes The Shaffner Inn and Summit Street Inns, offers a unique rehearsal dinner, wedding, reception and event experience for everyone attending your wedding weekend, with the opportunity to utilize our three historic homes. Combined, they offer 18 sleeping rooms for your wedding party or guests, an outside garden perfect for an unforgettable ceremony, and an all-inclusive wedding reception package with a memorable, historic home setting. Forever begins here.
