The King's Daughters Inn

What it is: At long last, we thought it was about time that we have another post for our "Just for Moms" section.  The King's Daughters Inn was the perfect choice.   If your wanting a perfect hideaway for a special night away from the kids without ever having to leave town, King's Daughters Inn is a fabulous option!  It also is a great choice for visiting grandparents to stay or even have your next party, shower, or celebration.


The King's Daughters Inn is a 17 room bed and breakfast located just across the street from Duke's East Campus.  It was previously used as a home for single women and was recently renovated into a beautiful bed and breakfast near to all of the fabulous restaurants and entertainment in downtown Durham and Duke's area of town. 


For a weary mom they offer rooms with a deep air jet tub, plush robes, nightly turn down service complete with port and chocolates, delicious breakfast, afternoon tea, and nightly spirits in the parlor.  I would love to enjoy a night out at a great Durham restaurant followed by a night at the Inn! 


What we liked: The Inn is beautiful with lots of wonderful amenities and a great location.  However, the greatest amenities of the King's Daughters Inn are the caring and knowledgeable innkeepers, the Crossmans.  They will make sure you are well taken care of during your stay and that you have everything you need.


What we would change: The biggest drawback to a night at the Inn is the cost.  While it is *incredibly* reasonable when compared with other nice hotels in the area with rooms starting at only $168 a night, it is still an expensive night out for a mom.  It would have to be a special occasion, but it would definitely be worth the splurge.
