After your Durham movers have left, your nearest and dearest are sure to want to come pay you a visit so they can experience the seasonable temperatures of the southern city. With all the decorating and organizing you have to do, you may not have space to accommodate your guests. Have no fear though, there are a slew of great bed and breakfasts in the city that are sure to provide a pleasurable experience. Here are a couple that you may want to recommend.
1. King's Daughter's Inn
The King's Daughter's Inn is steeped in history and teeming with good karma. The inn was originally built in the 1920s by the prestigious Duke brothers as subsidized housing for single, aging women. It operated as a place for seniors to live until 2006. Three years later, the building was bought, renovated and revamped by Colin and Deanna Crossman.
When transforming the cozy B&B, the owners wanted to preserve the beautiful architecture of the building, which includes a red brick exterior and blinding white pillars. They also strived to make it an eco-friendly structure. While the elegant 8-foot-wide corridors, 12-foot-high ceilings and ornately patterned carpets give the inn an air of antiquity, the environmentally sustainable windows and energy preserving practices usher the King's Daughter into the modern eco-friendly age.
2. Arrowhead Inn
To give your guests the laid back Southern living experience, recommend that they stay at the Arrowhead Inn. Built during the late 18th century, this B&B has a distinguished refinement of Dixie plantations from days of yore, yet it affords its guests all of the modern conveniences. Residents will enjoy rest and relaxation in the spa-like whirlpool tubs and they'll wake up every morning to delectable fare prepared by the Arrowhead Inn's private chef.
