Arrowhead Inn
Ranked #1 of 8 Durham B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 February 2014

The Arrowhead Inn is not to be missed if traveling through Durham, NC. We arrived on a chilly late afternoon and was met by Gloria at the front door. She took us on a short tour of the Inn before bringing us to our room , The Brittany Room. Wow! We were overwhelmed with an immaculate large suite with all the comforts one could expect including a gas fireplace. Phil advised us to try a neat restaurant in town which we found to be exceptional. These two individuals own and run the Inn. Once you arrive you become a part of their family. Phil and Gloria go out of their war to be certain your stay is a majestic memory. After a comfortable nights rest we awoke to a magnificent breakfast which was prepared by Phil. My wife and I travel all over the world and we both agreed this was the best breakfast ever served to us. We plan to stop at The Arrowhead on our way back north.

Room Tip: The Brittany Room was an excellent choice

Having stayed at many B&B's over the years in both the EU, US and other countries this one was one of the absolute best. Attention to detail in service, food and decor made it such a treat. The host Gloria was relaxed and welcoming although we were unexpected and without a reservation. We look forward to returning for another pampering stay in the future.
...Best cherry pie of my life!

Room Tip: Great if traveling to Duke Hospital

We choose to stay at B&B's whenever we go out of town, and I can honestly say that the Arrowhead Inn is at the top of our list of favorites now. Every detail was attended to, and we were made to feel so welcome and appreciated. Phil and Gloria were excellent hosts who took pride in their home and made sure each guest was well taken care of. If you have a chance, don't miss out on the special dinner created by Phil - absolutely some of the best food we have ever eaten! He is a professional chef, and it certainly is evident in the breakfasts, afternoon snacks, and especially the personalized dinner. We have the wonderful privilege of staying both in the Brittan Room and the Garden Cottage - both were wonderful in their own ways. You will be well treated at the Arrowhead Inn!

Room Tip: For extra privacy, choose the Garden Cottage out back

Your fabulous comments fall on welcoming ears considering your extensive experience with B&Bs! It’s wonderful you were able to experience the Brittain Room in the Manor House (http://www.arrowheadinn.com/rooms/brittain-room.html) as well as the private Garden Cottage (http://www.arrowheadinn.com/rooms/garden-cottage.html) for two different perspectives of our Durham B&B. Thank you for your extended stay and winsome patronage!

My son and new daughter-in-law had their wedding and honeymoon at the Inn this past December. There was not one detail left unattended to. The food was off the chart and the hospitality and care was outstanding . The inn was nothing short of elegant with Christmas decorations and inviting fireplaces. Many of our family have food allergies and are "foodies" . What a treat to be so well cared for. It was a dream come true for us all! Great value for all surfaces.:)

Your family’s wedding was absolutely beautiful and a privilege to host here at Arrowhead Inn. We’re so pleased they chose Durham for their wedding and to stay for the weekend. You’re a wonderful spokesperson for our Intimate Family Wedding (http://www.arrowheadinn.com/weddings/intimate-wedding.html)!

Our stay was shortly after Christmas and we were able to experience the wonderful ambiance of real trees and sitting in front of the fireplace with warm cocoa. Phil is an amazing chef and always had mouthwatering breakfasts (any juice you could think of, fresh fruit and a scone or other bakery item and the breakfast of the day--waffles with bacon, quiche, baked eggs, breakfast burrito--the naming of which does not do them justice) and afternoon snacks (wonderful selection of fruit, cheese, crackers and sweets). I can only imagine the cuisine and enjoyment of it during the spring and summer, when Phil harvests from his garden and meals and quiet time can be outside in the garden. Gloria is fully attentive to the needs of every guest and all details in the smooth running of the Inn. She ensures that no quest wants for anything she can provide. We stayed in the Duke suite, with the comfortable bed affording great sleep and the sitting room with fireplace large enough to spread out and complete our work. Housekeeping was unobtrusive and excellent. We would recommend Arrowhead for any travel--business, romantic getaway, a retreat when at the medical center, or simply to treat yourself to pampering.

Room Tip: Look at the online pictures carefully. They accurately depict the amenities and size of the rooms.

We loved staying in the cabin for our 30th anniversary retreat! And it was definitely a treat! Loved the cozy feel and all the amenities! Gloria and Phil were excellent hosts! The food was excellent and the atmosphere was wonderful.

Room Tip: If you want a total get-away, the cabin is the way to go!

The Arrowhead Inn turned out to be much more than I anticipated. We stayed in the log cabin & had everything that we needed for a romantic getaway. The innkeepers were wonderful, breakfast was exquisite & the accommodations were really enjoyable. It was very comfortable & the grounds were beautiful. Great place to ensure privacy, a very intimate setting. We had everything that we needed. We loved it & plan on returning soon
