Overlooking the stately oak trees of Duke’s East Campus, The King’s Daughters Inn occupies an ideal location in Durham , NC - a short walk to Duke University, downtown Durham, Brightleaf Square, and 9th street; a short drive to Research Triangle Park, Raleigh-Durham Airport, and the new Durham Performing Arts Center. Though close to so many lively urban districts, it’s blends seamlessly into Trinity Park, one of Durham’s oldest, most established, most walkable urban neighborhoods. This location gives our Inn the feel of an urban retreat.

Enjoy high-speed wireless internet throughout, ample event and meeting space, and spacious common areas for relaxing and socializing. Savor gourmet breakfasts, afternoon tea, and evening wine and scotch. Retreat to your room for our turn-down service with locally-made artisan chocolates and Port.

I don't even know where to start in writing the review for how absolutely incredible everything was about the King's Daughters Inn. When my husband and I toured the KDI in July 2016, we met with Denel who was so kind and warm. From there, we knew we had to take advantage of the beauty and convenience of the KDI for our wedding weekend. Every person we interacted with at the inn from (Denel, Faustine, Meaghan, Evonne) were so considerate and patient. I don't know how they found each other, but I am so glad they did!
We had a huge wedding party (23 attendants total) and had the entire wedding party with dates stay at the KDI (total of 43 people) for the Friday and Saturday nights of our wedding weekend. This was seriously one of the best decisions we made. We had the entire inn to ourselves so our relaxing time during the weekend was spent with our favorite people. We brought in snacks and alcohol which the staff at the KDI served along with afternoon tea and the most delicious brunch. They also served port and chocolate at turn-down.
Although the rooms were more expensive than more hotels in Durham, they are SO worth it. You are getting so much more than a hotel room at the KDI. You are getting incredible service, a beautiful setting, and the most comfortable rooms. I could not recommend this venue more highly for a wedding "home base!"

With the family-reunion intimacy that only a bed 'n breakfast could offer, the gourmet breakfast that you'd expect from a 5* restaurant, the linens that must be found in (or straight from) Heaven, the antique heirloom flare of Southern Living, the Ivy League appeal of Duke across the street, the ah-at-last-complimentary shot of bedtime port with chocolate...need I go on? The King's Daughters Inn derives its name from a home of hospitality that the Duke family founded a century ago & which the current Innkeepers maintain with endless energy & unbounded creativity. Their attention to décor detail, culinary comfort, Southern charm, & much more provides a vintage venue for (as with our over-the-top experience) a wedding & reception (or any special event), putting a heavenly sparkle on making lifetime vows of loving unity amidst beloved family & treasured friends. Best Advice: make the celebration last a week, not just a weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!

KDI was by far the BEST decision I made regarding my wedding. Everything was absolutely perfect. The space is gorgeous and great for an intimate wedding. The trinity suite was gorgeous for getting ready pictures. The sun room was the perfect backdrop for a first look. The list goes on. The inn gives the advantage of having so much extra time with your loved ones. It was so nice to have them stay the night with us and really get to spend time with them. Denel was my primary point of contact, and she was amazing. During planning whenever I emailed her I always got a speedy response. Later Faustine joined the team and she was lovely to work with as well. Not to mention the staff there the day of. They took care of everything. We forgot our table numbers and the inn actually made some for us. I didn't have to stress about anything. Our guests absolutely LOVED the experience and we were told over and over again how it was one of their favorite weddings.
Beautiful venue and so easy to work with. Very professional.
We had the pleasure of working with the staff of King's Daughter's Inn on a styled shoot and their professionalism and hospitality were awesome! The Inn is beautiful and we would recommend them for a venue to all of our couples!
What a cool place! The King's Daughters Inn has really unique, fun bedrooms for your stay in Durham, but is also a great space for intimate rehearsal dinners, bridal showers/luncheons, or small parties. One of the best kept secrets of Durham!
