We had a delightful stay at the Arrowhead Inn. After a long drive, we felt welcomed and immediately relaxed in the Inn and in the Lipscomb room.
Ron met us and shared some of the history, local spots for food, and all about the stay we anticipated. He was so helpful in addressing the questions we had.
Spending a night in a piece of US history was rich, restful, and engaging! We will certainly stay again!

Amazing B&B in a historic nicely renovated 18th century house with a beautiful garden. Spacious rooms with vintage furniture and modern amenities designed with great attention to the detail. Tasty and plentiful breakfast. Can't think of a better place to stay. 10 out of 10.

A nice change of pace from the usual higher end hotel. Quaint and quiet rooms, friendly, helpful but unobtrusive staff. Well kept grounds with gazebo seating. Breakfast served promptly. Of course as an historic mansion there is no elevator, so keep that in mind when choosing your room.

We first stayed at the Arrowhead Inn on our Wedding night and had not been back since. We were celebrating my wives high school reunion and decided to revisit the place. This time we went for the Lipscomb room, which is the original master bedroom for the house. We also had enough time to see the spectacular grounds. All in all it was a wonderful weekend, being pampered in style. The food was quite good and the room was magnificent. Our only complaint was the height of the bed. My wife is rather short so getting in and out was a challenge.

Arrowhead Inn is such an awesome place for any occasion, right outside of Durham and Raleigh. One of the most gorgeous B&B grounds we've seen, and the rooms are a perfect balance of old charm with modern luxury. Beyond the property, the innkeepers Ron & Stephanie are super nice; they really made us feel like we we're family just stoping by for the weekend. I would highly recommend to everyone. We will be back soon, while in town for football at NC State (Go Pack)!

The perfect place for my wife and I to spend our first night after our wedding. Our wedding was in the evening and Arrowhead was kind enough to organize an extremely late check-in for us and communicate with me via. text with the late check-in instructions. The room was amazing and I honestly wish we could have stayed longer. My father surprised me and my wife with chocolate strawberries in the room through Arrowhead and they were awesome. The breakfast the next morning was incredible and we took an opportunity to walk around their property and it was really great. Like I said, even though I live in Durham, I'd love to stay here again!

I stayed here one night while on a road trip, and my only regret was that I didn't stay here longer! The rooms and service were great, and the garden and grounds were absolutely beautiful. I wish I had had more time so I could've explored them more! The breakfast was also super delicious. Will definitely be back!

The most incredible experience we could have imagined on our wedding night! Everything was absolutely quiet, spotless, so comfortable, and luxurious...from the perfectly clean tub to the soft linens, robes, and blankets. We felt so special when we got there and they were playing "A Thousand Years" and our beautiful antique radio was set to classical music! The flowers on the bed, floor, and side table were so romantic and beautiful, and the cheese and fruit plate was delicious! We felt so pampered. We will be back!

We stayed several days for our son's college graduation.The suite was secure, clean and comfortable, spacious and tastefully decorated. The sheets were soft and the mattress was just right. The bathroom was roomy and functional with good water pressure in the shower. The sitting room and fireplace in the suite were the luxurious beginning and end to each day, complete with coffee bar and fresh water. Breakfast was filling, delicious and appealing, including fresh fruit and pastries with the main course. The staff and owners were friendly and accommodating. The grounds are lovely, and a special delight when flowers are blooming. Allow some time to sit and relax outdoors. The location was a very easy drive to Duke's East and West campuses, as well as downtown Durham, roughly 20 minutes to everywhere we went. We are unlikely to have another reason to visit Durham in the future, but if ever we do, we would happily stay at The Arrowhead Inn again.

This place is a gem! From the gardens to the bed sheets to the service... everything was spectacular. I was there for a quiet couple of days to catch up on some work and it was lovely to work in the gardens with the great landscaping and bunnies running around. The service from the owners was 100% amazing! My only note... the house is next to a road, so it's not complete silence...but it's close to the great restaurants in Durham! I will definitely go back.

Beautiful inn on the edge of Durham. The building was historic but with modern amenities. The grounds were remarkable with huge magnolias and walking paths around a well considered landscape plan. The location was safe in a residential neighborhood, but about 10-12 miles from downtown. This didn't bother us but may be a consideration for others. The innkeeper was very accommodating and pleasant. We would definitely stay there again.

My husband and I were looking for a small wedding venue to hold an intimate wedding ceremony and we discovered the Arrowhead Inn in our search. We stopped looking after one visit, we could not have found a more perfect venue! The Inn is so naturally beautiful that we really didn’t have to decorate much. The owners were so nice and accommodating and they left no details untouched. The room that we stayed in was extremely comfortable, luxurious, and welcoming. The property was PERFECT for our wedding, and the day of coordination made for a smooth and memorable ceremony and reception. We intend to return to the Arrowhead Inn for our Anniversary and for any other excuse we can think of! 10/10

I have stayed at Arrowhead Inn six times. That alone tells one how much I have enjoyed my stays. The hosts are incredibly kind and helpful. I stay in the garden cottage and the privacy and quiet are amazing. While I miss meeting other guests in the dining room as breakfast is brought to the cottage, my sister, who is immunocompromised, can feel safe there. Ron and Stephanie went out of their way to make us feel welcome - the perfect hosts. Lovely room, beautiful grounds, delicious breakfasts, charming hosts - who could ask for more.

WOW is an understatement for the service and the accommodations! Every single employee is top notch. Rooms are well appointed and extremely comfortable. The room was very clean. Very Impressed with this hotel. I can not brag enough about my top shelf experience. We are in hotels often and I have to declare this is going to be one of my FAVORITE stops for special occasions. The location is great as well. Thank you for making our stay amazing.
