Relaxed and refined are two words that describe the setting for our wedding. We reserved the entire inn for the weekend for an intimate family wedding. All of our children including grandchildren were completely accommodated with luxury linens, robes and amenities. The gardens were in beautiful form with lovely paths, swings, lawn and sitting areas for play and gathering for casual conversation. The porches at the cottage and cabin were great places to sit and talk. Breakfasts were delightful, and our evening buffet and wedding receptions were absolutely perfect. The lamb and salmon were fabulous. Gloria, Phil and their staff made sure we were happy and satisfied throughout the weekend. They even made special arrangements for food items for the grandkids. Having the entire inn to ourselves was the best decision we could have made, facilitating a convenient, caring, and intimate family affair.

I chose to stay at the Arrowhead Inn to rest up after long travels before going into a conference. My stay was thoroughly delightful! I asked ahead for special meals and was so pleased with all my meals. Salads were bursting with flavors and colors. Breakfasts were quite lovely. It was so nice to walk around the neighborhood and enjoy nature. The innkeepers have a wonderful sense of humor and really went out of their way. All the staff have a sweet culture of friendliness. I set up (online) transportation to the Inn from RDU airport with Skylink shuttle. Worked like a charm.

Our experience at Arrowhead Inn was very relaxing. The owners were so polite and helpful. We stayed in the Duke Suite and we loved the layout. We definitely enjoyed the whirlpool tub. The landscape was beautiful and romantic. I would suggest to place to family and friends :)

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.
