King’s Daughters Inn
Located in the historic neighborhood of Trinity Park in Durham, North Carolina, the 1911 King’s Daughter’s Home once served as subsidized housing for aging, single women and later as a retirement home. When the Colonial home became available for sale in 2006, Deanna and Colin Crossman saw an opportunity to combine their passions for historic preservation and sustainability into something that others could enjoy as well. In 2009, the couple converted the property into a luxury bed and breakfast, The King’s Daughters Inn.
Blending the amenities you may expect from a first-class hotel with the intimacy of a bed and breakfast, The King’s Daughters Inn features 17 elegant and unique guest rooms, some including private sun porches. In the morning, a complimentary breakfast, highlighting a home-made signature dish, is served in the main dining room. In the afternoon, guests enjoy a tea service, including a welcoming plate of small bites, offered in the parlor. At day’s end, a glass of tawny port along with artisan chocolates are delivered to your room.
