A Rich Tapestry of History

The origins of Duncraig Manor trace back to 1928, conceived by Mrs. Helen A. Lohmann and her mother, Mrs. J. H. Andrews, a Quaker Oats heiress. Designed by Alfred B. Yeomans and inspired by English Cottage style Tudor architecture, this sprawling manor was completed in 1930. Renamed Duncraig Manor by its second proprietors, it has connections to the historical Duncraig Castle in Scotland. Enshrined within the Southern Pines Historic District, it gained its place on the Department of the Interior’s List of Historic Places in 1991.

A Legacy Revived

In 1990, Duncraig Manor was showcased by the American Society of Interior Designers, attracting over 40 designers to adorn its interiors. Following a period of decline, the manor found new life under Caroline and Donald Naysmith in 2017. Their dedication to historic restoration over 18 months revitalized Duncraig, ensuring the manor’s century-old legacy endures while offering a welcoming haven for guests. In 2018, it proudly opened its doors as a Bed and Breakfast and Special Events Venue, sanctioned by the Southern Pines Town Council.
