“People are just loving it,” comments Bob Cohen in reference to the re-opening of the historic Nu Wray Inn in Burnsville, N.C.
In April 2010, Cohen and his wife Lisa England, purchased the three-story clapboard colonial house and spent four months (“12-15 hour days,” says Cohen) preparing the property for the grand re-opening in early August.
Overlooking the Town Square, Nu Wray Inn, established in 1883, is an integral part of Burnsville and its history. Throughout its time, the property has hosted a variety of such guests as Mark Twain, Thomas Wolfe and Elvis Presley. Cohen refers to Nu Wray Inn as “a magnet that draws people back.”Quote for today:
