Guest Reviews

The perfect place for my wife and I to spend our first night after our wedding. Our wedding was in the evening and Arrowhead was kind enough to organize an extremely late check-in for us and communicate with me via. text with the late check-in instructions. The room was amazing and I honestly wish we could have stayed longer. My father surprised me and my wife with chocolate strawberries...See More

Beautiful inn on the edge of Durham. The building was historic but with modern amenities. The grounds were remarkable with huge magnolias and walking paths around a well considered landscape plan. The location was safe in a residential neighborhood, but about 10-12 miles from downtown. This didn't bother us but may be a consideration for others. The innkeeper was very accommodating and pleasant. We would definitely stay there again.

The owners were so nice and accommodating and they left no details untouched. The...See More

Arrowhead Inn is such an awesome place for any occasion, right outside of Durham and Raleigh. One of the most gorgeous B&B grounds we've seen, and the rooms are a perfect balance of old charm with modern luxury. Beyond the property, the innkeepers Ron & Stephanie are super nice; they really made us feel like we we're family just stoping by for the weekend. I would highly recommend to...See More

The most incredible experience we could have imagined on our wedding night! Everything was absolutely quiet, spotless, so comfortable, and luxurious...from the perfectly clean tub to the soft linens, robes, and blankets. We felt so special when we got there and they were playing "A Thousand Years" and our beautiful antique radio was set to classical music! The flowers on the bed, floor, and side table were so romantic...See More
