From living a busy lifestyle, it was very restful and relaxing being at the Arrowhead Inn. The innkeepers are delightful and fun folks. We have never had a better breakfast.....it was the best! It is a beautiful inn, and the grounds are such fun to browse. It was our second visit, and even though we like to visit others, I wouldn't be surprised if we go back again.....and again!

This is a wonderful B&B. The house is full of amazing history and some of the rooms are going on 300 years old. The food is good, and the owners are awesome. Situated on some lovely maintained grounds. Suite was adorable and super comfy. This was a perfect Valentine's day surprise getaway for my partner and me.

Amazing trip! My new husband and I had to change our wedding plans due to everything going on, and so we decided to come to Arrowhead for a few nights as a short honeymoon! The food was great, Ron and Stephanie were so nice, and the cottage was so lovely to stay in. We will definitely be back in the future.

My wife and I stayed at Arrowhead Inn for a one night get away while the kids were with their grandparents. Our experience was excellent...the room was perfect and very clean. The breakfast was tasty. And our favorite part was walking through the beautiful garden. We will definitely visit again!

This B&B is amazing! The house is gorgeous and surrounded by giant magnolia trees and countless flowers, making the grounds truly stunning. Ron was warm and friendly and made sure our stay was amazing. I usually look for a Relais & Chateaux property when traveling, but knew I had to give this place a try. So glad I did, Arrowhead inn is right up there with them. Excellent and spacious rooms, decorated with tasteful antiques, quality sheets, comfortable bed, will be back again!

This was such a peaceful retreat. I was there for some tests at a Clinic at Duke. After traveling 5 hours, we came in and were greeted with such a beautiful property and excellent hosts. I slept like a baby and woke up and went to a wonderful breakfast. I’d love to have another piece of their chocolate chip loaf!!! I may have to come back and will definitely want to stay here again. Thank you so much ❤️

Spent a delightful night here for our 16th Anniversary. From the moment you pull up to the grand historic home you are swept away to a peaceful oasis. The gardens are thoughtfully & beautifully landscaped, with soft classical music playing as you take it in. We stayed in the Duke room which had a lovely separate sitting area (perfect for eating a take out meal) and a huge elegant bathroom with a jet spa tub for a relaxing soak. Breakfast on the patio under the shade of the gorgeous 200 year old trees and overlooking the gardens was a real treat. Delicious too! Highly recommend a stay here, and we will absolutely return!

We returned for another trip to Arrowhead Inn. This time during very different circumstances than before in the mid of COVID. However, Stephanie and Ron made it just as warm and welcoming as our previous stay had been in 2017 with the previous owners. Gorgeous property. We can't wait to return for many years to come.

I recently had a magical stay at Arrowhead Inn! The innkeepers, Ron and Stephanie, are personable and accommodating. I was there to reunite with my BFF whom I hadn't seen in 11 years. Our room was well appointed--including a personal welcome from the innkeepers wishing us an enjoyable reunion! The food was phenomenal. The inn is gorgeous. The grounds are spectacular. I wholeheartedly recommend the Arrowhead Inn Bed and Breakfast as the perfect place to stay for every occasion!

Another phenomenal stay in the books. Thank goodness this place is in close proximity to the triangle making it easy to get away for a night when needed. The atmosphere and attention to detail created by Ron, Stephanie, and the rest of the staff is truly relaxing. Stephanie’s breakfast was incredible!

What a fabulous destination with breathtaking grounds. I needed a getaway to recoup from "quarantine fatigue" and my husband found this gorgeous Inn in North Durham. It was just what I needed, quiet, relaxing with attentive staff. We were in a lovely cottage with a porch where we were able to eat our breakfasts and picnics in the fresh air. The food was all delicious. All of the CDC precautions were adhered to and I would not hesitate to return for a relaxing few days.

The home was awesome, very clean. We felt confident and safe during the on going pandemic. The inn keepers were away and the inn sitter was great. She kindly helped us back in our room when we got locked out and the breakfast was delicious. I would love to return for another stay.

Lovely! Many personal touches within the room, the robes provided were so cozy, and the breakfast was excellent. Would 100% recommend and if we are ever in NC again, we will be going out of our way to stay here again.

We had an amazing night. The Carolina log cabin was very comfy and the perfect setup we were looking for to celebrate our 13th anniversary. Thank you Ron and Stephanie.

Our stay at Arrowhead Inn Bed and Breakfast exceeded our expectations. Everything was 5 star! The home is lovely, the grounds and the room we stayed in was delightful. The breakfast was delicious. Ron and Stephanie were so friendly; it felt like we were visiting friends. We loved our experience and plan to return!

I live in the local area and needed a quick getaway to relax and unwind. The Inn was perfect! There are many spots to read and relax outside, they serve a yummy breakfast daily, and it is close to downtown Durham and other local destinations. I felt very safe given the many COVID-19 precautions they have in place. Would definitely come again for the weekend or even to work remotely there during the week in such a relaxing environment.

Stayed here with my wife at the start of October. It was beautiful! Very nice rooms. Wonderful bath and steam shower. The breakfasts were delicious! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet retreat. Just wonderful time overall

My wife and I originally booked back in the spring, but then Covid hit and shut everything in Durham down. We were able to rebook for this fall and absolutely loved it! Ron and Stephanie do a great job making sure their guests are taken care of. We spent three wonderful nights in the cabin, where we enjoyed a movie with a warm fire in the fireplace, a luxurious bath in the jetted tub, a hot steamed shower, and a comfortable bed in the loft. The outside grounds were well taken care of, though you should expect a little bit of noise from the intersection nearby. We were able to enjoy time outside reading in rocking chairs on the porch and the hammock, playing checkers in the shade, and munching on dinner from a local restaurant next to the fire pit. Breakfast was fancy each morning and consisted of juice, a goblet of fruit, an entree with a piece of meat, and a baked side. Coffee and water were always available as needed. Extra meals and activities could be had with a short drive into Durham. All in all, our getaway was relaxing and much needed! We look forward to visiting again! Brian and Valerie

We really enjoyed roasting marshmallows and laying in the 2 person jetted tub! The double steam shower was amazing! I really enjoyed sleeping under what may have been the warmest and coziest blankets of my life! Truly an honor to stay here!

My wife and I visited the Arrowhead Inn in September and had a wonderful time. The atmosphere and environment created by Ron and Stephanie was second to none. They were very welcoming and attentive to our needs during our visit. The breakfast was excellent and the coffee was exquisite! In fact we inquired about the brand of coffee they use and were advised that they have their own brand of coffee beans roasted right there in Durham. Even better was the fact that we can order it from Ron and have it send directly to our home. In fact, we had some just this morning and it was so delicious. There’s nowhere else I would rather stay in the Raleigh Durham area!

I am so impressed with this place and cannot wait to go back! It was absolutely beautiful and we were well taken care of. We spent our wedding weekend there and it could not have been any more perfect. The food was exceptional as well!

The best place by far. Heart warming folks, with great food to match. If you like a quiet atmosphere that reminds you of grandma's house then you're in store for a treat. Beautiful rooms throughout and you can stay in and be pampered or lay around outdoors with the greenery. This place has a historical flare that you can't help falling in love with.

The Arrowhead is a truly stunning inn! The property is very well kept, and the room we had was even better than the pictures led us to believe! The innkeepers are so kind and very accommodating. I couldn’t think of a single thing to add to our experience, I only wish we could have stayed longer. It was very relaxing to stroll through the garden, and it was obvious the homemade snacks and breakfast was cooked with love. There were also so many extras we weren’t expecting, chocolates in the room, silk robes, and very thoughtful added toiletries such as a makeup wash rag and candles by the bath!

Had a lovely stay at Arrowhead Inn this past weekend. Went with a group of girlfriends to celebrate a friend's special birthday. Couldn't have selected a more perfect place. The innkeepers, Ron and Stephanie were so attentive and warm. Ron took the time to explain the history of the inn. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. Stephanie put out a lovely selection of snacks in the late afternoon, and breakfast the next morning was delicious!The bedrooms were beautifully appointed and immaculate! (The bed was very comfortable). Ron and Stephanie really do everything they can to make your stay so enjoyable; from Chocolates and snacks in the room, carrying the luggage up to our rooms, and taking a lot of photos for our group. I would love to come back again with my husband . Thank you for making our stay so welcoming!

The place was beautiful and the hosts were so accommodating- we wanted for nothing. The bed was so comfy and I felt like royalty in the beautiful room. The place really does take you back to a time gone by. We will definitely be back. It was worth every penny.

Beautiful historic Inn located just off 501. If you're from Durham like I am and have oftentimes passed this beautiful establishment you owe it to yourself to try it out! This home was originally built in 1775 and you can stay in one of the two original bedrooms or the 7 other beautiful rooms. We stayed in the Montclair. The perfect place for a history buff or a couple celebrating their anniversary. Ron and Stephanie were gracious hosts and I do plan to return!

My husband and I had a lovely getaway for his birthday at the Arrowhead Inn. The home is beautifully maintained, with such rich and interesting history! I enjoyed reading about the family reunion at Arrowhead of descendents of the slaves that once worked this plantation. We enjoyed wine by the fire in the downstairs keeping room and a nice fire in our room (the Lipscomb) as well. We walked the grounds - gorgeous and well maintained. The bathroom in the Lipscomb is fantastic with a large tub and steam shower. The steam was one of the main draws for me - love it!

This B&B is unbelievable! Exquisitely charming and romantic, luxurious at a bargain rate, we could not have been more enchanted with Arrowhead Inn. Ron and Stephanie are delightful hosts, the grounds are amazing, the breakfasts to die for. Do yourself a favor when you're next in the Durham or Raleigh area, and stay at Arrowhead Inn. You'll be SO GLAD you did! It's 15 min from downtown Durham so an easy drive to wonderful and quaint restaurants and bars. It's 3 minutes from the beautiful West Point on the Eno park.

Lovely inn, wonderful owners! My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a stay in the Garden Cottage and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Ron and Stephanie provide the extra touches that really make a difference. Treat yourself and spend some time at this inn!

Very nice couples getaway in our own back yard. We stayed in the log cabin and it was awesome. Ron the owner greeted us as we arrived and showed us around. We had the breakfast served to our room which was perfect. Coffee, OJ, eggs, grits and Canadian bacon. This place was perfect for a weekend with the one you love. Thanks Ron.

During my last minute search for a place to stay I was surprised to see how many B&B options were in the area. The rates for Arrowhead were better than the competitors, and honestly more in line with what you’ll pay for a 4* stay in Raleigh nowadays. After reading the reviews, and reading on the history of the place, I decided to give it a shot. I cannot overstate how glad I was to have chosen Arrowhead. The homestead and property are beautiful. Ron, our Innkeeper, didn’t bat an eye when we showed up a little earlier than the disclosed check in time. He was warm and friendly, took us on a brief but delightful tour before leading us to our room. He was the perfect balance between being a gracious host and an insightful human who understood we were there to get away. We stayed in the Brittain Room. It was understated in its elegance. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the corner whirlpool tub after our dinner, and the 4-Poster King was ridiculously comfortable. We paid the extra 25 to have our breakfast delivered in the morning, and it was fabulous. Three courses, pastry, fruit, and baked eggs over asparagus served with coffee and orange juice were delivered by a very sweet woman. I believe it was Stephanie, and I regret not asking her name. She too was utterly charming, but gracefully left to return us to our time together.I cannot directly compare Arrowhead to its’ local competitors, as we’ve never been. But I also don’t believe I will be able to in the near future, as we most certainly will choose them again for our next spur of the moment getaway.

I like my privacy, so I’d never really considered a bed and breakfast. That wasn’t even a concern when we spent the night a few months back for an anniversary surprise —can’t stop thinking about it! Very relaxing place not far from everything. Arrowhead comes highly recommend for recharging and escaping the ordinary hotel experience. Cozy, private, luxurious, and much more personal than a chain!

This place is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. Our wedding was so precious and perfect. Many tourists attractions in Durham, but you won’t want to leave! Ron & Stephanie is great, they went beyond out of their way for us to ensure our day was special. Her food is amazing, we stayed in the garden cottage which is so unique and lovely. The steam shower was a wonderful addition as well. It will always have a special place in our heart. Hope to come every year for our anniversary! Oh and I left my bouquet by accident (which means dearly) so they, being the wonderful people they are, mailed it to me! Cannot day enough about this hidden gem!

We needed a quick option to get away for our 15 year anniversary. Ron was so hospitable and attentive to our needs. The place was clean. Stephanie is an wonderful chef. The trees and scenery is beautiful and quite serene. We love the jacuzzi tub!

Excellent all the way around! Ron and Stephanie are wonderful hosts and we were impressed with their attentiveness and communication even in the weeks before our arrival. We stayed in the Lipscomb Room which was wonderful, and the snacks upon arrival were a welcome and unexpected treat. The Grounds are impeccably kept and create a relaxing atmosphere, and the fire pit (which I hear may be getting an upgrade) was a great place to gather and talk with other guests if you’d like a little socialization while you’re there. My wife loved everything about the stay, including reading in the hammock under one of the big trees outback, but the highlight for me by far was the breakfast Stephanie prepared! It was absolutely fantastic. The ONLY negative we found, and it should by no means deter you from coming here, was the noise from the road next to the property. For what it’s worth my wife said it really didn’t bother her when she was reading in the hammock. We will be going back again in the future! Thank you Ron and Stephanie!

This was our fourth stay at Arrowhead Inn. It is by far the best bed and breakfast experience we have ever had, which is why we go back when we are in the area. The accommodations are perfection. The rooms are so cozy and inviting. Our last stay was 3 days of pouring rain, so it was not possible to enjoy the beautiful grounds, but it was so good to get "home" after being out in the torrential rain. Gloria and Phil are the owners and greet you like long lost friends. Their care and concern for the comfort of their guests is genuine and quite unique in my experience. To top it all off, Phil is an extraordinary chef. The afternoon pastries and treats on a rainy afternoon with a delicious cup of tea are so comforting and delicious. Breakfasts, prepared by Phil, are amazing. The presentation is lovely and the staff that assists in serving are cheerful and will do anything you need to make sure your breakfast experience is a wonderful way to commence your day. If you want a peaceful and gracious stay, I cannot recommend the Arrowhead Inn highly enough. Treat yourself and book a stay! We will definitely be back, time and time again.

We had the privilege of staying a couple of day's at this lovely inn as a birthday gift.We were immediately impressed by the beauty of the area and the inn itself. Ron was nice enough to accommodate our late arrival due to bad weather on the way into North Carolina. He even went the extra mile to warn us beforehand we were headed into bad weather. Upon arrival he greeted us with a big smile, a history of the inn and a tour. We felt right at home from the start. The room was stunning and very clean. The breakfast prepared by Stephanie was super delicious! Our stay was very memorable and can't wait to make it back. Ron and Stephanie are very warm and welcoming. I highly recommend staying here for anyone who wants a relaxing get-away!
