a lovely place to stay

The hospitality was very good, and the beauty of the home and it's space was a pleasure to enjoy.


The best B&B in Durham. Monica accommodated my gluten free request and prepared delicious gluten free waffles for breakfast. The Magnolia Room is very romantic and the entire Inn is filled with warmth, charm and great hospitality by the gracious Innkeepers Monica and Daniel.

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!


Gracious and comfortable

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!!


Great find!

Recently spent a weekend at Morehead Monor. Great accommodations, great hosts and even greater breakfast. Very convenient to downtown Durham. A very pleasant, peaceful experience.


Looking Forward To A Return!

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!


Birthday weekend at Morehead Manor

5 on July 08, 2014

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!


Beautiful mansion in the perfect location!

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!


A Great Place to Stay...

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
