Services & Products
We are a 17 room Luxury Inn and Meeting place, centrally located in the heart of Durham, across from Duke University.
Our philosophy is 3-fold: protect and restore the historic architecture for future generations, be as environmentally conscious as possible and effectively implement the most current green technologies available today.
Many people believe fusing historic preservation with an environmentally responsible building is incompatible. Adaptive reuse of a historic structure is the ultimate in recycling. We've incorporated a 10,000 gallon cistern, a rain garden, an ultra-high efficiency water heater, a gray water system that cleans and recycles the laundry water to flush the toilets and a fully integrated energy management system.
