In 1935, Griffith’s parents paid only $600 for the house on Oct. 31, 1935. Then they received $6,000 for it on May 31, 1966.
Mr. Griffith’s boyhood home has been a tourist attraction for many years. In 1998, a former owner, Gary York, bought this property and turn it into a rental property. He then later sold it to the owners of the Mount Airy Hampton Inn.
When we looked at this house on the outside, we knew it was small. And we were right. This house only has two bedrooms and one bathroom. If you rent this for your accommodation needs, you will see that there are antiques in it and it is decorated in the 1930s and 1940s style. In addition, it has Griffith memorabilia all over it. This house is rented for $150 to $175 per night. It is also located 1 mile from the Andy Griffith Playhouse, Snappy Lunch, and Floyd’s Barber Shop.
You can check in here at 3pm and check out at 11am. The owners recommend you make reservations. And you can make these by calling the Mount Airy Hampton Inn.
At Andy’s Home Place, you will receive the following amenities: cable TV, daily maid service, and use of facilities at the Hampton Inn, like the outdoor pool and exercise room. And you will also receive a continental breakfast.
The direction to this accommodation is as follows: Take US 52 North to US 601, then go a half-mile to Haymore Street and the house is on the right.
