Morehead Manor Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 8 Durham B&B and Inns
GreenLeadersBronze level
Reviewed 19 November 2013

What's not to like? The innkeepers are friendly, helpful, and professional. The breakfasts were excellent. The kitties were unobtrusive. Our room was spacious and clean and the bed was comfortable. The house is lovely and its owners' story about how they acquired it is pretty interesting. Fabulous art. It is in a great location with ready access to Brightleaf Square and several good restaurants as well as Duke University. The front parlor was a comfortable place to visit with a friend.

I would not hesitate to recommend Morehead Manor to anyone unless they do not do well with stairs; the staircase is beautiful and I think has about 32 steps up. Or down. "-)

Room Tip: Check the inn's website for descriptions and photos of each room.

My husband and I and 3 teenage children stayed at Morehead Manor in August. It is conveniently located and the rooms are extremely comfortable. The hospitality shown by Monica and Daniel was fantastic and made our stay so memorable. The breakfasts were delicious and there is coffee and snacks available throughout the day...very important for hungry teenagers! If we are ever in the area again we will definitely be staying here.

This B&B is a wonderful place to stay. Yes, the house was lovely and conveniently located but that was not the most important...the thing that stands out here was the atmosphere Greta created....she just made us feel at home...no pretense...just genuine hospitality. We went to Moorehead Manor for a Murder Mystery Weekend (check out these weekends!!!) but they are set up for business travelers also. The Tiger Room was large and light (but I would suggest adding a second comfortable chair for us weekend loungers). There is no TV in the room!!! We enjoyed our stay and will certainly return.

The tiger room was beautifully done....the inn is so tastful and well kept with little bits of heritage sprinkled throughout...the curb appeal when you arrive at night gives you that feeling you are about to enter pure southern class and charm.

This is definitely not one of the the best B & B's in which I have stayed. Inn keepers always following you around and in your face. Beds were lumpy and the location was not ideal. Breakfast was OK but not what I would choose. Would not return.

My husband and I stayed at Morehead Manor for a getaway to celebrate our 11th anniversary. We had a wonderful stay from start to finish. Monica has a real gift for hospitality and is very welcoming and helpful -- and the breakfasts she prepared were delicious. She also accomodated our request for a light breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed chatting with Monica and with her husband Daniel as well. We stayed in the Magnolia Suite which was very comfortable -- the bed was dreamy! We slept so well. The inn is in a perfect location to visit Durham, it's within walking distance of DPAC and a very short drive from wonderful shops and restaurants. We will definitely stay here again.

Morehead Manor B&B is an excellent place to stay in Durham. The house is well decorated and the bedrooms are large and comfortable.

The hosts were friendly and knowledgeable about restaurants and attractions in the area. They cheerfully accommodated our dietary restrictions.

We will definitely stay there again when we return to Durham.
