Absolutely the best choice in all of Durham! Morehead Manor is a gorgeous property with two stylish outdoor areas, a beautiful porch, and uniquely decorated rooms. Monica and Daniel are perfect hosts: attentive, intelligent, worldly, charismatic, and made some of the best breakfast I've ever had. The rooms are more Victorian or older style, but so charming and very comfortable. I really enjoyed my time and am already scouring my calendar to make another trip.

We had the pleasure of staying at Morehead Manor for our anniversary. The house and the history is amazing. So much has been done to preserve the original character of the inside of the home, while perfectly updating the grounds to be a place where guests want to sit and socialize. The owners, Monica and Daniel, were top-notch hosts and we loved spending some time getting to know them. They were warm and welcoming and casual and it felt like we were staying with family, in the best way. Breakfast was wonderful. And be sure to grab a piece of Daniel's carrot cake while you're there.

We stayed at Morehead Manor for a Girlfriend’s’ Getaway. From the moment we stepped onto the property we knew we had made a wonderful choice. Monica and Daniel are wonderfully engaging hosts. Their friendly welcome and attention to detail made us feel so special. The beautifully decorated and well-appointed Morehead Manor had everything we needed. It was truly a home away from home. We enjoyed the outdoor pavilion, side porch, well-stocked snack bar, the delicious breakfast and so much more. This B&B is the best.

We cannot say enough about how wonderful our stay at Morehead Manor was! Daniel and Monica are delightful and so much fun! They know all things Durham and are happy to share them. The breakfasts were first rate and healthy! Our room was perfect and cozy with an electric fireplace...just right for preparing for our son's wedding. The artwork throughout tells a story...everything is well thought out and makes for a very welcoming experience!

This is the first Bed & Breakfast that the owners interacted with guests beyond breakfast. The owners, Monica & Daniel, were such gracious host. Every need was accommodated with precision. The room was so cozy and certain met our needs during our weekend of planning. We were given some great recommendations for restaurants. Their vast knowledge of the community and history was captivating. Oh, did I mentioned our delicious breakfasts. I will return. Thank you to The Edwards for a job well done.

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.

Truly enjoyed our stay. The experience was beyond what we expected, the food, accommodations and Monica & Daniel were the best! We stayed is a very spacious room on the second floor., parking is very easy on site. Very clean historic mansion located downtown and the owners have such a friendly and welcoming spirit. I would definitely recommend staying at the Morehead Bed & Breakfast. Liz & Scott C.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!

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!

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

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.

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!

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.
