Best of Chapel Hill Awards

We’re excited to share the winners of Chapel Hill Magazine’s annual Best of Chapel Hill Awards. These amazing individuals and teams are part of the charm that makes our destination, Chatham County, worth the trip!

2017 Best of Chapel Hill Awards
Winners voted by the readers of Chapel Hill Magazine, bi-monthly publication. Congratulations to ALL the nominees and winners. Nothing worthwhile is easy, though they make it appear so, and we appreciate our tireless and creative business owners and their teams. Kudos to the many repeat winners from previous years and new businesses (a few have been in business less than one year!). Consistency in quality of product and services, plus amazing first impressions, our guests have noted it all!

*Neighborhoods, builders–so many guests love our location to visit and some make the move to retire here! And, we’re pretty fond of this local pharmacy, for its ice cream treats!
