We had a wonderful stay at Morehead Manor. Upon our arrival we were welcomed by Daniel and Monica. The house smelled wonderful because Daniel just finished baking carrot cake for guests to enjoy. They also offered a variety of coffees, teas, soft drinks and desserts for us to enjoy during our stay. The grounds are absolutely lovely, including a space for lawn games, a fire pit area, a bocce court, and serene side porch. It is just a short walk to several downtown restaurants and bars. We slept wonderfully on a very comfortable mattress with high quality bedding. Breakfast in the morning was delicious as was the conversation. Our only regret is that we couldn’t stay longer to enjoy all this B&B has to offer.

We stayed here while in Durham for a good friend’s wedding. The experience at Morehead was a memorable trip highlight. Owners Daniel and Monica have a purposeful energy that you feel the second you arrive and that sticks with you long after you leave, difficult to describe and impossible to imitate.
Breakfast was consistently out-of-this-world good and there were welcome comforts of home for guests to enjoy in the common areas. Fans of historical homes will find a lot to love, and your hosts’ personal touches create an endearing, living atmosphere that invites your participation without demanding it.
This is a place full of proper priorities and lifetimes of happily-shared wisdom. Guests with open ears and well-travelled shoes will find a warmth at Morehead Manor that isn’t found many other places. Our only regret is that we didn’t have more time to spend at the house during our trip.

Daniel and Monica Edwards are the most down to earth, inviting, and hospitable hosts. Their property is absolutely beautiful and has an incredible history. We enjoyed our anniversary weekend and they invited us to join them with their friends as they had great fellowship each night. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend if you are in the Durham Raleigh area.

The owners, a beautiful couple, treated us with unparalleled kindness and respect. We celebrated a birthday there, which was immensely enjoyable, highlighted by an exceptional live jazz band. The venue itself was not only immaculate but also resonated with rich history. To top it off, they prepared a wonderful vegan breakfast for us. I encourage everyone to visit, it's a perfect place to have an event and spend a night.

I had the most enchanting stay at Morehead Manor! From the moment I arrived, I was transported into a world of elegance and charm. The manor's historic architecture, beautifully manicured gardens, and warm hospitality made me feel like royalty. The rooms were exquisitely decorated with a perfect blend of classic and modern touches, providing the utmost comfort. Each morning, I was greeted with a delectable gourmet breakfast that catered to my every culinary desire. The staff went above and beyond to ensure my stay was impeccable, offering personalized recommendations for local attractions. Whether I was lounging on the veranda or sipping sweet tea, I felt a sense of tranquility and rejuvenation. Morehead Manor truly exceeded all expectations and is an absolute gem that I can't wait to return to.

We stayed at Morehead Manor several years ago when visiting Durham and liked it so much we knew we would stay again when we returned. And it was wonderful again! Monica and Daniel are great hosts -- very attentive and know everything about Durham. We had a nice time using the various rooms in the B&B and they have added many lovely outdoor spaces since our last stay. Breakfast was amazing and they were very accommodating of our eating preferences.
I just can't say enough about this B&B -- we have stayed in a lot of them over the years and this one stands out!

This is by far THEE best bed and breakfast!!! I love the hospitality, decor, breakfast (and snacks) that were a part of my experience at Morehead Manor. The property is beautiful, the grounds are well maintained and the innkeepers are two of the kindest people I have ever met. I’ll definitely be back!!! And hopefully they will be serving zucchini pecan waffles with fresh fruit for breakfast.

The grounds are lovely too. It’s in a perfect location near everything and the breakfast was amazing. If you’re in or near Durham, do yourself a favor and stay at Morehead Manor! You went regret it!

I recently had the pleasure of hosting a wedding shower at Morehead Manor Bed and Breakfast, and I cannot speak highly enough of the experience. From start to finish, Monica and Daniel Edwards, the Innkeepers, went above and beyond to ensure that our event was nothing short of extraordinary.
First and foremost, their attention to detail was impeccable. Monica and Daniel meticulously helped me coordinated every aspect of the shower, from assisting with the set-up, establishing the perfect spot for our food truck and aiding us with locating the perfect chef and cupcake expert to ensuring that every guest felt welcomed and taken care of.
The venue itself, nestled on Vickers Avenue in Durham, NC, is an absolute gem. The charming and elegant ambiance of Morehead Manor Bed and Breakfast provided the perfect backdrop for our special celebration. The beautifully maintained property, exuded a sense of tranquility and warmth that instantly captivated our guests.
The highlight of the day was the outdoor event held on their stunning grounds. The warm, sunny, and breezy day in June made for an enchanting atmosphere. The lush gardens, blooming flowers, and gentle breeze created a magical setting that will be forever etched in our memories. It was a truly unforgettable experience.
What truly sets Morehead Manor apart is the exceptional hospitality provided by Monica and Daniel. Their genuine care and attentiveness throughout the entire process made us feel like honored guests. They were responsive to our needs, accommodating every request with grace and professionalism. Their warmth and genuine passion for what they do are evident in every interaction.
If you are searching for a venue that combines charm, elegance, and impeccable service, Morehead Manor Bed and Breakfast is the perfect choice. Whether it's for a wedding shower, a romantic getaway, or any special occasion, you can trust that Monica and Daniel will go above and beyond to create an experience that exceeds all expectations.

We had a fantastic stay at this amazing place! The Edwards are delightful hosts who made our experience the best. The rooms, grounds and amenities were wonderful. Breakfasts were delicious with engaging host and guest conversations every time. We want to continue to stay at this inn with each visit to our kids and granddaughter in Durham. Thank you Monica and Daniel!

My husband and I so enjoyed our stay at the Morehead Manor! Monica and Daniel are the essence of Southern hospitality. They easily accommodated our late check-in time, were available to greet us, help us with our bags, and provided us with suggestions of nearby restaurants for a late dinner.
From the moment we drove up, we were enchanted with the grounds around the Manor – the Bocce ball court, the sculpture garden and the huge metalwork plaque: Be A Nice Human – a motto they have obviously taken to heart. The inside of the Manor was warm and elegant, with original, eye-grabbing art throughout, many comfortable places to hang out, and a lovely dining area.
Our room (the Tiger Room) was unique and well-appointed, with a “just right” mattress and strong water pressure in the shower. And the breakfasts – heavenly! It was a good thing we only stayed 5 nights and did a lot of walking, because every breakfast was a delicious and abundant masterpiece. Plus, the morning conversations with Monica and Daniel and the other guests were fascinating and a perfect way to begin our days. Whenever we are in the Durham area again, Morehead Manor is where we will stay.
