My husband and I decided to spend our 5th anniversary at the King's Daughters Inn (full disclosure--I won a gift certificate for the stay). We live in Durham and had actually toured it when it was under renovation and being converted into an inn. The owners did an absolutely fantastic job with the renovations and the interior design. It is gorgeous, and they also added some 'green" features that really impressed me. There's a nice mix of historically appropriate decor and crisp modern details. The room included an iPad and a nice digital flat screen tv. The bed is triple-sheeted, translation: extremely clean and luxurious! We had a nice view of Duke East Campus across the street.
We took a pleasant walk through the charming historic neighborhood and down Main St. for a light supper at Toast and drinks at West End Wine Bar. It is also walking distance to many of Durham's foodie hot spots: Bar Mateo, Pizzaria Toro, Toast, Whiskey, Dos Perros, Scratch Bakery, Loaf, the Farmer's Market, Parker & Otis...You could also walk to DPAC but it is a bit far, very close if driving and we noticed they have a zipcar!
Lots of charming/romantic details like luxurious robes, port and chocolate with turndown service, even the old fashioned bell you ring when you arrive. The owner prepares a delicious hot breakfast with full menu, as well as an assortment of cold choices like cereal, fruit, scones, yogurt. The Inn was full on the Monday night we stayed and I noticed a mix of couples, business people, professor types, and a European family with teenage son in tow.
It really was absolutely lovely and I did not want to leave!
