Our stay at the Blooming Gardens was filled with positive experiences including: the romantic charm of the beautifully restored historic inn, the amazing gardens, the delicious breakfasts, the exceptional hospitality from Frank and Dolly, the playfully hidden chocolates throughout the room and more.
The Inn and the rooms were clean, beautifully decorated and overflowing with eclectic collection of antiques.
When I returned to retrieve a jacket I left behind, Frank and Dolly returned it in a nice bag...and then went a step further and added some Lindt chocolates. They just aim to please in every way.
I found even the house cats to be very friendly.
I highly recommend the impressive and expansive Duke Botanical gardens.

We had a wonderful stay at the Blooming Garden Inn. We contacted them as we had a unique situation in which we needed availability to the room prior to checkin time. Frank was very accommodating!
The Inn was very comfortable and located close to a lot of great things in Durham. The breakfast was fantastic with fresh fruit, a delicious quiche, and fresh juice. Will definitely book here again if it works out for future trips to Durham.

What a unique B&B experience in your lovely home full of interesting antiquities and stories. As a Duke graduate ['80], it was a thrill to be back in Durham, seeing the chapel and jogging Campus Drive. Your B&B is serene and a place of tranquility. Many thanks for your gracious hospitality.
