Aunt Bee's Room at the Mayberry Motor Inn

I don't know if you ever really could "sleep in Aunt Bee's Bed" in Room 109 at the Mayberry Motor Inn, but you definitely cannot anymore. The room is crammed with items that belonged to Frances Bavier, who played Aunt Bee, most of which were obtained at her estate sale. The owners will show it to you but do not allow photos other than through the window when the curtains are open.

Sleep in Aunt Bee's Bed

Visited the exterior. Couldn't get into the room as someone was staying in it.

A popular sleepover spot for Mayberry fans, Room 109 of the Mayberry Motor Inn features the actual bedroom set of the late Frances Bavier, who played Aunt Bee in the Andy Griffith Show. The motel owners will show the room to interested visitors -- if it isn't occupied.
