301 S. Academy St.


  • Boutique hotel with approximately 42-48 guest rooms and suites 
  • Includes two rehabilitated historic houses, the Waldo Rood House and the Mayton House

The hotel was constructed on three lots located at 110 E. Park St., 106 E. Park St. and 301 S. Academy St., which total 1.04 acres in size.


The Town Center Area Plan (later consolidated into the Cary Community Plan), Cary's long-term master plan for creating a unique, vibrant, and pedestrian-friendly downtown, has made significant progress toward its goals. This includes acquiring properties within the block bounded by South Academy Street, E. Park Street, S. Walker Street and Walnut Street, which is commonly referred to as the Downtown Opportunity Site. In 2012, Memento Mori, LLC entered into a purchase and development agreement with the Town to purchase the last of these properties located at 110 E Park St., 106 E Park St. and 301 S Academy St. for economic development purposes. The principals of Memento Mori own and operate the King’s Daughters Inn in Durham.

A number of economic benefits exist with the development of the Mayton Inn, including increases to the Town’s population and its tax base, an improved business climate for downtown Cary and the creation of approximately 40 jobs. The Mayton Inn will strengthen the character of Academy Street and complement the downtown Historic District. By providing upscale accommodations, a restaurant, and meeting and event spaces in the downtown area, the Inn will also support the Cary Arts Center, The Cary Theater and other downtown businesses.
