Great place. Personalized service. Owners are pleasant and social. Dropping my son off a Duke and stayed here for 2 days. The owners were accommodating and flexible in almost every regard. Rooms are easily double the size of the Kings Daughter's Inn.Try Morehead and I am sure you will not be disappointed!

The innkeepers were wonderful. Love the 1910 house. We felt like we were back 100 years in time. Beautiful artwork through the house. She is a great cook.

A home away from home. Love the energy and feel of the home. Beautifully decorated. The innkeepers were very inviting, have great conversations and the breakfast is awesome. This will be a place I visit often!!!

Genuinely outstanding bed & breakfast experience from the physical location (interviewing at Duke’s PA school across the street) to the communication with booking our room, to the charming surrounding of their spotless home; but I will return to morehead manor to simply spend time with its owners! 21 years worth of pride running a bed & breakfast that felt like a home thanks to the attention spent on homemade breakfast, house full of art work and outstanding recommendations on how to spend your time in the area! Five stars from us who came all the way from CA!

Enjoyed all the amenities, right downtown Durham, so nice to return after our visit to DPAC and sleep in their comfy bed. Breakfast was excellent!

My wife and I stayed at Morehead Manor after Christmas of 2019. We enjoyed our stay. The innkeepers are personable, our room was nice, and downtown Durham was great! The innkeepers also invited us to their Durham Police retirement party. Unfortunately, we were unable to accept the invite but if their family and friends are anything like them, I know the party was live! Congrats again!

The owners made us feel so welcome! They are lovely people! We really enjoyed our room, the gourmet style breakfast and the engaging conversation! We could've stayed and just talked for hours! Morehead Manor is in the perfect location, within walking distance of downtown Durham area and DPAC. My husband and I highly recommend Morehead Manor!

My daughter and I had a wonderful time here. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Monica and Daniel made us feel right at home. Breakfasts were truly amazing. The inn is within walking distance of downtown where you can find several nice places for dinner and other activities.

My mom and I had a wonderful time at Morehead Manor! Monica and Daniel made us feel welcomed and right at home from the very beginning. Breakfasts were AMAZING, as was the morning conversations we had. It felt like you were having a family meal even though you were with people you'd just met. I'd highly recommend this inn for anyone traveling through the Durham area - it is a stop you won't regret!

Hopefully, they will have Daniel's Carrot cake - it's deliriously moist, the perfect amount of spices, and yes, the cream cheese frosting. It’s sweet without being too sweey. The best carrot cake I've had.

This is my go to place for respite. I love the quiet and elegance of the B&B. I frequent there annually. It’s always clean. The complementary library, snacks & desserts are a nice touch. The breakfast is amazing! Let alone that it’s owned by two amazing people.

Monica and Daniel are lovely hosts that really make the experience. They're super friendly and accommodating. From the diet-accomodated breakfasts to the accommodated after-hours arrival and my being allowed to use their WiFi for a Zoom meeting after checkout, they always found a way to tailor the experience to us! They're also great listeners and conversationalists, engaging warmly and intently with all guests during breakfast. My dad and I had a great time there in Durham. We biked the American Tobacco Trail and even found some time to make use of the bocce ball court right outside the inn. Highly recommend this place to stay! Thanks, M&D! :)

Our stay at Morehead Manor Bed & Breakfast was the first stay at a B&B. Let me just say...if you have not had the experience... you should. The chosen room was The Tiger Room and it was beautiful, calming and peaceful. Breakfast was absolutely divine. We both cleared our plates each time. Also, Daniel’s apple cake was unforgettable. My husband will never look at an Apple quite the same. Heck, he may even trade in his iPhone. Daniel and Monica also suggested places to eat and visit during our stay. From the time we were greeted by Monica and Georgia (the kitty)...up to the time Daniel saw us off...my husband and I felt genuinely welcomed. Thank you so much Daniel and Monica for your hospitality, great talks, good foods and warm hearts. We will assuredly be resting our heads with you again.Theresa

Just spent a wonderful, relaxing weekend at this B&B. The food was unique and delicious. The owners are warm, friendly and made us feel like family. We will definitely stay here again in the future. Home away from home.

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending our honeymoon here at the Morehead Manor B&B this past weekend. Monica and Daniel made our honeymoon and our 1st experience in a Bed & Breakfast a GRANDE one! They are such an amazingly charming couple, inspirational, personable, yet professional. Through conversation we learned that Monica and Daniel have been married for 27 years. Us as newlyweds, we were so happy to gain so many "nuggets" and "jewels" from them because we could tell that not only do they love each other, but they love what they do and they're doing it together. The mansion is so lovely and elegant yet comfortable. The ambiance of the artwork in the room and the commons area were so stunning. We chose the Tiger room, which was even more beautiful than its pictures online; and we chose the picnic in the park package and the couples massage for our 1st day. We were so exhausted from the wedding and traveling, so that was a very nice touch to set the mood right... The gourmet breakfast and desserts were the icing on the cake.... especially Daniel's delicious carrot cake! Our stay was nothing short of 5 stars and I was really appreciative of how safe they made us feel during COVID-19. I look forward to spending many more getaways here and I definitely recommend everyone to book here for a grande experience.

The artwork and details throughout the entire property are so well curated and gives a beautiful ode to black culture and the local area. Felt welcomed and appreciated. The accommodations are lovely, the beds are comfortable and the food is delicious. Thank you Monica and Daniel for the Durham city recommendations and the warm welcome we felt at your Inn. We will return. The carrot cake was just delicious. Have a slice waiting for me the next time I’m in the city. All best to you. #BeAGoodHuman

Staying at Morehead Manor felt like coming home to your family. Daniel and Monica are the most inviting and cordial hosts we've ever seen. The rooms are big and comfortable, nicely decorated, and our room had "a car wash" shower system that was hard to leave. Hot streams were coming from all directions. So relaxing after a long day of sightseeing. However the most enjoyable experiences were the breakfasts and little conversations with our hosts and other guests. Monica is an incredible cook! We highly recommend this place.

Monica and Daniel went above and beyond to make sure we were accommodated. The Manor is stunning and we loved the historic preservation mixed with modern amenities. We'll definitely return for another visit.

What a way to be introduced to the B&B lifestyle! My experience was GREAT from arrival to departure! I enjoyed this wonderful period home which was like visitng a familiar family home. Warm greeting, easy check-in, nice accommodations, delicious food, inviting conversation, and I could go on even more! Monica and Daniel embraced me with hospitality which is JUST what I needed! THANK YOU!

Moorhead Manor is an old (110), beautiful, art-filled, and charming B and B, meticulously run and maintained for the past 25 years by a wonderful local couple, Monica and Daniel. Breakfasts were incredibly delicious (that raspberry French toast!), and it was a highlight to sip coffee and chat with Monica during breakfast service. Homemade cookies and cake, packaged snacks, coffee and tea, and cold refreshments are available 24/7. The Manor is ideally located for a quick, safe, and easy walk to the fabulous restaurants and bars in the very vibrant downtown area of Durham. The rooms are very large and our bed was very comfortable. We stayed in the Jasmine Room and we have a few things to note: white blinds allow a lot of light into the room in the morning (bring a sleeping mask if you need darkness for sleep); this room faces the road and traffic noises were occasionally noticeable (bring ear plugs if you need total silence to sleep); the rooms do not have televisions, but there is a beautiful central/communal living room that has a television. Thank you to Monica and Daniel for a fantastic stay!

It was such a pleasure staying in thiswonderful bed & breakfast last week. My wife Donna and I are so glad that we decided at practically the last minute to stay overnight in Durham instead of driving back to Winston-Salem after the theater performance. The hospitality and delicious breakfast are more than enough to bring us back for a return visit so we can spend much more time in Durham. Guests will be charmed by the beautiful art work and all of the references to the proprietor' love of cats and nature. Monica and Daniel have gone out of their way to present such comfortable accommodations.

Monica and Daniel are excellent hosts, and Morehead Manor is a warm and welcoming place to stay! We loved supporting a local family owned place and being able to learn a little bit about the area from them as well as enjoying their hospitality! The artwork and decor make it extra special and all of the gathering spaces, indoors and outdoors, are unique and inviting. Our room was spacious and quiet, even when the inn was full of other guests. Highly recommended!

Five plus. A wonderful place to stay--we stayed there five nights and wished we'd had more. It combines homey and luxury in a way that's kind of hard to imagine. The breakfasts are beyond wonderful, the ambiance is calm, the location both withdrawn and with easy access to a city that's got a whole lot to offer. One of the best places we've ever stayed.

We enjoyed a peaceful evening out back visiting with Daniel & enjoying the perfect weather!! As a bonus, breakfast was delicious!! We hope to get back someday for another visit!!

After reading stellar reviews online, I was ready to try my first Bed and Breakfast establishment. The reviews were right on! The large home is beautifully appointed with comfortably furnished rooms to lounge and relax. My bedroom provided a wonderful retreat and three restful nights of sleep (thanks to the lovely outdoor chimes) and a most comfortable bed with soft luxurious sheets, and a well-appointed private bath. The morning coffee and the breakfasts were delicious. I appreciated the hosts' accommodating my non- meat preference. The hash made with Brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes and vegan sausage was a standout. The cleanliness of the entire, very large home was the first thing I noticed upon arrival and was remarkable. Also, the extensive art collection was interesting to view. Thank you Monica and Daniel for the warm welcome. I will be staying with you again!

My visit/stay was AMAZING! The Inn Keepers, Monica and Daniel, were super friendly and made me feel very comfortable and welcomed! The rooms were clean and the beds are like marshmallows! I rested well. They even made accommodated my dietary needs, Vegan, and let's say, I was not at all disappointed. Definitely will stay there my next trip to Durham NC!

This is a beautiful bed and breakfast right outside of downtown Durham. I wasn’t sure what to expect as I made my travel plans last minute but would definitely stay here again! The room was super clean and everything was accounted for! The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast the next day was amazing! I am gluten free and Monica whipped me up something very special! Book a night here and you will not be disappointed!

The stay was fantastic! The Inn was in a perfect location - - accessible to activities in downtown Durham and wonderful restaurants. The house was beautifully decorated with great antiques as well as modern pieces; yet it was so very comfortable. The hosts made us feel like old cherished friends and fed us well, with great breakfasts, as well as wonderful baked goods. My husband is still raving about the coffee!

Where do I begin?! The breakfast was amazing every single day! And Monica catered to our vegan diet without missing a beat! The house was immaculately cleaned! The atmosphere was so welcoming and inviting. It felt like we were visiting old friends. The courtyard was so peaceful we contemplated sleeping outside!(hats off to the yard guy, lol) We will be back many many more times!!! And I’m gonna call ahead to request Monica’s vegan carrot cake!

I would definitely recommend staying at the Morehead Bed & Breakfast. Liz & Scott C.

Stayed here last night after seeing Steely Dan at the DPAC. Very convenient location, only a 15 min walk to the center. We were warmly welcomed by the innkeeper, and shown around the extremely well accommodated house. The room was quite spacious with a desk, dresser, two beds and a comfortable reading chair. Our seven headed shower was a fun experience, and breakfast this morning was outstanding! Next time we need accommodations in Durham, Morehead Manor will be our first choice.
