The Maya Angelou Room celebrates one of our most accomplished and gifted writers. Dr. Angelou taught at Wake Forest University from 1981 to 2011. She lived in her famous "little yellow house that Caged Bird bought" in Winston-Salem until her death in 2014. We have painted the west facing room a lovely shade of yellow in honor of that house. The late afternoon sun filtered through the magnolias makes the walls glow. The room is filled with her books, and also others about North Carolina, her work and interests. There is a private bathroom with a full bath and shower, double bed, and a typewriter for your enjoyment as well. It is cozy, but elegant. Nightly Rate: $130.00. Rates are for double occupancy before taxes.
