Arrowhead Inn B&B – a charming inn in the heart of Durham, NC

Majestic magnolia’s and cheerful flowers welcome me as I arrive at Arrowhead Inn Bed & Breakfast in Durham, North Carolina. Sure, it’s a historic inn, a Select Registry inn as well as a Four Diamond AAA inn, so I was expecting to be impressed. Nevertheless, I had no idea how impressed I’d be.

A total of nine guest rooms.

Built in the 18th-Century, the home and land belonged to the Lipscomb family and remained in the family through the early 20th-Century. Today, owners, Phil and Gloria Teber, welcome visitors to this lovingly re-purposed property treating them to the ultimate bed and breakfast experience.

There’s a total of nine guest rooms, each impeccably decorated in keeping with the time period of the home’s original construction. Seven rooms are in the manor house and there’s a charming cottage and rustic log cabin on the property. Steam showers, a fireplace in every room, air jet tubs, mini-refrigerators, comfortable beds, electric car charging stations - just a few of the touches that make staying at the Arrowhead Inn a luxurious treat.


Only a short drive from downtown Durham.

Nestled on six lush acres in Durham, North Carolina, Arrowhead Inn B&B is a peaceful escape and ideal retreat, yet, only a short drive from downtown Durham. Visitors have easy access to Durham’s night life, the historic Tobacco District, Duke University, The Durham Performing Arts Center, The Durham Convention Center, and all the entertainment and activities the Bull City offers.

“It’s our food that sets us apart. Phil is a gourmet chef.”

As I toured the inn taking in the superb accommodations, and its outstanding features, I was curious how owner, Gloria Teber, would respond when I asked, ‘What sets the Arrowhead Inn apart from others?’ Without hesitation she replied, “It’s our food that sets us apart. Phil is a gourmet chef.”

Sumptuous breakfasts and three evening meals each week are expertly prepared using the freshest local ingredients to assure dining at Arrowhead Inn is a gastronomic delight. I had the good fortune of sampling one of the chef’s delectable pastries – let’s just say, it left me wanting more.
