Owned and operated by innkeepers who met as graduate students at Duke, The King’s Daughters Inn is a hybrid between a bed and breakfast and a high-end small hotel. The Inn is green-designed, with 1920’s style rooms you may not want to leave.
What we love: Sunrooms are attached to some of the guest rooms, so you can play boardgames with your family, or catch up on reading, in sunlight filtered by the oak trees of Duke’s East Campus.
The guest rooms are decorated in either Art Deco-inspired style or in classic 1920’s style—this dusty blue and white Deluxe Suite is an example of the latter.
The Parlour, with paneled windows, heart-of-pine floors, and a wood-burning fireplace, is the social center of the Inn.
A private sunroom, attached to a suite: a warm, sunlit place to spend time with family or friends.
The Parlor (above), the Sunroom, and Duke Brodie Hall can be reserved for meetings and events.
Duke University’s campus is across the street—starting with a 1.7 mile running or walking path directly opposite the hotel.
