Description of the Durham vacation home rental
he house was built by James N. Umstead around 1890 in the 'Queen Anne' style. The Durham Bed and Breakfast features a huge wraparound porch with 21 Tuscan columns. Dolly and Frank spent nearly three years in intensive restoration of the property and opened for business in the fall of 1990. High curved ceilings, heart-pine wainscotting, raised wood panels, nine original mantels, doors with original hardware, and all-original Southern Pine flooring will delight the historical buff. Antiques of the period are abundantly distributed throughout. The yard is fully enclosed with custom front fencing and gate. Mature floral gardens and flowering trees highlight the landscaping. The backyard is suitable for private events. There are four primary guestrooms, each with its own private bath. Each has its own distinctive character and is highlighted by antiques of the period. For the convenience of our guests we are open year-round, including major holidays, except for occasional short vacations during slower periods. Free cable and wi-fi. The inn, designated as Durham's first historic landmark, is just minutes away from Golden Belt (art colony), Durham Bulls Athletic Park, the new Performing Arts Center, Carolina Theatre, American Tobacco Campus, Brightleaf Square, and the Duke East Campus (free bus service now offered). Consider us as your 'home-away-from-home' to help make your Durham visit especially memorable! Ask about our "extended stay" options--minimum one week stay. Extra 25% discount for stays of a month or longer.
