One night stay in a delightful and very comfortable cottage. Excellent breakfast prepared by Phil. Not inexpensive, but you get what you pay for. Comparable to other B&B in the upper echelon

Mother/Daughter Road Trip

5 on August 26, 2013

This was our first stop on our annual Girls Road Trip, and it definitely started us off in style. The innkeepers were so gracious and friendly. We stayed in the Carolina Cabin, and it was fantastic. We marveled at how clean the cabin (including cozy bedroom loft) was. It was such a comfortable stay. The breakfasts were delicious, and we had dinner at the Inn on one of our nights, and it was fabulous (a highlight). My daughter had dietary restrictions, and the chef worked with them so well. The grounds were beautiful. It was simply the perfect way to start our vacation. Thank you!

Beautiful Inn

What a great place to relax while in Durham. The atmosphere was warm, friendly, and inviting. Service was attentive, the grounds were beautiful; we will definitely come again.

Can't get any better than this!

2nd trip back this this outstanding place.

A return visit

5 on August 21, 2013

Once again, the Arrowhead Inn was perfect for our 1 night stay. Phil and Gloria always make us feel right at home from the moment we arrive till the very end of our stay. We stayed back in February and a lot of the gardens were dormant. This return visit unveiled the true beauty of them in full summer bloom. Our suite was immaculate. Cant wait till we return again!

We had a wonderful time

More Than Just a Lovely Setting

4.8 on August 12, 2013

My mother and I stayed in the cottage for a two-night girls get-away. We felt like royalty with all that Gloria and Phil did to make our stay memorable. Phil's quick wit and Gloria's knack for attention to detail and casual conversation made our time there a real treat. The cottage was beautifully decorated, cozy, and convenient (which was especially nice, since my mom has some mobility issues). I had chosen to make a reservation for one of Phil's Meals (dinner) just as a convenience at the end of our arrival day. Little did I know the meal would be a gourmet feast, as were each of the breakfasts. As a final indication of how we felt about our stay, we reserved the cottage, the cabin, and the Brittain Room for a family gathering next June.

A wonderful stay at the Arrowhead Inn

Phil and Gloria are very gracious hosts. The Inn is beautiful, the food is outstanding and the service is wonderful...what a comfortable place to relax!

Hidden gem in Durham

This was our first stay at the Arrowhead. The grounds are absolutely lovely, as are the rooms. We ordered a cheese plate and champagne for our arrival, and everything was set up in our room when we walked through the door. Breakfast was also delicious--shirred eggs, local veggies and sausage, and well as fresh-baked biscuits and pastry. Our host were charming and we are looking forward to our next visit.
