My wife and I were quite pleased with this wonderful gem of a facility. On-site hosts were very hospitable and genuinely receptive to us. The room was fantastic and adorned with all of the historic charm the building exterior suggested. The next time we stay in Durham, this is the only location we’ll consider.
Have not had good experience with B & B's until this lucky stay. The comfort, attention to detail, hospitality and overall niceness made this overnight outstanding. The owners are friendly and can entertain you with great conversation if invited. This historic structure is sound and quiet with relaxing grounds. Great food! On site parking was great. Looking forward to staying here again. DL Chandler, Charlotte NC
We stayed at the Morehead Manor in mid March and I was extremely impressed. Our room was ready when we arrived and we received a full tour before being showed our room. After having an amazing breakfast Monica was able to offer great conversation and some insight about a few places we had planned to visit. We are looking forward to future stays at the Morehead Manor. :)
I contacted Morehead Manor to host my mother's birthday weekend. I had never been to a B&B, but she was adamant that she wanted to stay here so I booked it. From the very beginning I spoke with Monica and she was more than accommodating. When we arrived Daniel did everything to ensure that our stay was better than we could imagine. He provided great suggestions of things to do and places to eat in the area. He spoils you with his gourmet breakfast creations like nothing you've ever tasted! We originally wanted to stay in the Tiger Room, but ended up staying in the Magnolia Suite as it was the only one available and it was great! If you're looking for a vacation or even a staycation this is the place to go and get a wonderful relaxing getaway!
This was a most pleasant experience. The owners were very accomodating and took care of all our needs. Monica and Daniel was the epitome of professionalism & kindness. They made you feel like family. I will return for a future stay.
Morehead Manor bed and breakfast offered great hospitality, an amazing breakfast, pleasant conversation with the inn keepers and a great location to all that Durham has to offer. We would absolutely come back and we will be recommending this beautiful B&B to all our friends and family!

My wife and I stayed at the Morehead Manor B&B for valentines day, It was the first B&B we had ever stayed at and we were amazed, with the hospitality and the steak omlet we had for breakfast was delicious. We are looking forward to staying again in the near future. Jessica & Jerry
We had a wonderful weekend getaway tucked among the old trees in downtown Durham. Very conveniently located and the owners were a great wealth of knowledge on local events and things to do in the area. Would certainly return!
My son and I stayed here while visiting Duke University and it was a gem! Morehead Manor is beautiful and comfortable. It is rare that you get such a combination of beauty and charm but Monica and Daniel have done it. The breakfasts are absolutely amazing and the conversations are delightful. Would highly recommend it!!
Visited The Manor at the end of June on a "girls weekend get-away". I cannot offer enought applause. The inn is a beautiful, well appointed mini mansion. Located on a lovely, peaceful street with lush landscaping, I felt safe, cozy. Everyroom offered elegant comfort, with each bedroom actually a suite with its own bathroom! I forgot I wasn't visiting family or friends! The "Innkeepers" (host and hostess) were most welcoming and treated us as family guests. The food was always delicious!!We were offered detailed information about downtown history & sights, restaurants and shopping. It was a fun, "zen" weekend and look forward to returning!
Spent my birthday weekend at Morehead Manor. I could not have been more pampered. The Inn is absolutely beautiful, the food is outstanding and the hospitality of Daniel and Monica Edwards surpassed my greatest expectations. It was truly a treat!
Morehead Manor is a lovely mansion with an even more lovely owner. Monica was helpful and very available in person and, when necessary, via cell phone. The location is fabulous--easy walking distance to the Bull's stadium/shopping area as well as the Brightleaf shopping area. The two-bed room was perfect for me and my daughter. Breakfast was fabulous--homemade zucchini waffles (try 'em --they are awesome) with berries and whipped cream on top with turkey sausage. It's also just a 5-minute drive to Duke's campus!
First time stay in a B & B. Wonderful experience. Clean and spacious facility. The owners made us feel welcome and very comfortable. Because of this experience will seek out other B & Bs. James & Yvonne Harris
My wife and I were in Durham for one night. It was our wedding anniversary. We decided to try the Morehead Manor. We were delighted with what we found. B&B's are all so different. Our room, the "Tiger Room," was very comfortable and private. Our bed was very restful. The breakfast the next morning was delicious. We even learned, from our hostess, a little of the history of the building, which is both impressive visually and historically. If we return to Durham, we look forward to staying in Morehead Manor again.
The Moorehead Manor is a big, beautiful house with a lot of history. The service was impeccable and the food was amazing! My stay there was peaceful and quiet and I look forward to a return visit. Thank you so much!
This is a beautiful home, filled with art, comfortable and so good for a place to rest on a visit to Durham. Because of sensitivities to perfume, cleansers, carpet, etc, it has been tricky to find places to stay while traveling. Morehead Manor exceeded my expectations. Beautifully and colorfully restored, the Manor is airy & very clean, has radiator heat, windows that open, and wood floors with lovely area rugs. It is well cared for by Monica and Daniel. I'd mentioned that my diet is wheat-free and organic , however, when traveling, I don't expect others to use organic ingredients. And yet, the delicious fruit served with breakfast was, and Monica was not at all surprised about the wheat-free request...she seemed very used to that and provided yummy pancakes and other breakfast bread. I am looking forward to going back for my next vacation in Durham, for sure. What a sense of security, to have all that to count on, as well as a hammock and swings in the beautiful back yard.
The Eagle's Inn room was spacious, beautiful, comfortable and light. The service was impeccable, above standard. The price was comparable to other Inn's of this nature with a senior discount that really helped. The room was very clean and tidy. The Innkeeper's were delightful, helpful and exceeded our gluten-free, vegan morning breakfast expectations. Four stars!!
We have stayed at quite a few B&B's and we felt that everyone at Morehead Manor was awesome! Monica, the owner and Greta made us feel like family! Homebaked treats in the evening and an awesome breakfast made our stay very enjoyable. We recommend this B&B to everyone!
We aren't sure which parts to emphasize more: the relaxing reading room downstairs, the ultra-comfy king-size bed, or the gracious hosts who saw to our every need (even those we weren't aware we had!). Monica and Daniel made us feel welcome and at home for our weekend away. Best of all, the food was amazing. My husband still raves about the apple puff pancake. Fabulous!
The Staff was extremely Friendly and very approachable. I called a week before we were to arrive and asked if there was a massage therapist nearby, within a matter of minutes they had someone set up to come to our room and give us massages! It was wonderful not to have to worry about any details. There were also many times that we had to ask for direction to local restaurants and they were there with all of the answers. I will definitely be going back!
I recently had the pleasure of staying at Morehead Manor while on business travel. An inn that has dessert available at anytime for their guests certainly impressed me. It also indicates this inn’s high level of commitment to their guests’ comfort. This beautiful and historical inn maintains a cozy feel while providing all the modern amenities to attend to the guests’ needs. The lavish rooms complete with splendid touches of fresh flowers and silken sheets are just a few of the many reasons to stay. The breakfast is fabulous and worth the stay on it’s own. If you are looking to relax this charming inn has a unique collection of art, books (fabulous cookbook selection too), and media that you can enjoy fireside. Alternatively it’s central location allows for quick access to the many exciting things to do in the Durham/RTP area. Whatever sights, shopping, or dining you want to take in the hosts are informative and quick to assist you. The solid service, beautiful accommodations, and the air of attentiveness and pampering distinguish Morehead Manor as an inn of choice.
