“"Outstanding in Every Way"”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Ed and I stayed with Gloria and Phil overnight, and we were immediately impressed with how genuinely friendly they were. Their home is beautifully, comfortably furnished in a manner that would please guests with very high standards. The innkeepers' attention to detail is equal to that of the finest luxury hotel's. No shortcuts, no shoddiness, nothing cheap on the premises. The whole place seems truly "camera ready" nearly all the time, and the innkeepers manage to make everyone feel relaxed and welcome in the picture-perfect setting.

To top it all off, the meals are splendid! Food is artfully presented, delicious, and seems to be prepared according to classic techniques. Moreover, the innkeepers care especially about fellowship around their table, which is a special kind of nourishment in itself.

Go on down to Durham and rest a while with Gloria and Phil. They're definitely in the right business.

Room Tip: The Lipscomb Room, upstairs, is gorgeous.

We stayed a few days at the Arrowhead Inn and as the last time this was a fantastic experience. Phil and Gloria manage to create an atmosphere of being with friends. We enjoyed a very stylish decorated house, with excellent beds, very clean rooms and last but not least a breakfast exprience that is a delighting surprise every day.

Stayed here the night after my wedding and enjoyed the first two nights of marriage in the best location possible. Phil and Gloria made the stay more than enjoyable. The food is out of this world and the accommodations are through the roof. I will recommend Arrowhead to everyone that ever needs a place to stay in Durham. What a fabulous place.

Room Tip: Book in advance for your trip, may book up quickly.

Surprised my wife with a small getaway and we were both captivated by the beauty and relaxation we experienced at Arrowhead. The innkeepers were incredibly kind and gracious hosts. The meals were divine. The room itself made our visit that much more romantic. All in all I recommend Arrowhead to the highest degree as we are both deeply grateful for our visit.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet, spacious, and relaxing. Recommend all that Arrowhead has to offer, especially t...

Phil and Gloria's bed and breakfast was excellent. They made my wife and I feel welcome the whole time we were there. The room was beautiful and the breakfast was delicious. It was a wonderful anniversary!

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
