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.
