Benson Room

Enjoy memorable romantic getaways in North Carolina at our beautiful Durham B&B. Recapture the magic of a time gone by when you enter into the Benson Room, one of the Manor House’s original rooms, which showcases circa 1775 brickwork above the fireplace mantle. The Benson Room features soft blue and rose floral wall coverings that soar to the high ceilings with intricate moldings surrounded by 150-year-old white wainscoting.  A plantation-style queen carved cherry four-poster bed beckons you to a peaceful night of rest with the glow of the gas log fireplace casting its spells not far from the footboard. One might watch a movie on flat-screen TV with streaming services from this vantage point of the extremely comfortable high mattress. Indulge yourself and your partner in the soothing two-person corner whirlpool or relax under the rainforest shower – all nestled hearthside. Step out of the tub onto a rich burgundy Oriental rug which partly conceals the original heart-of-pine floors, reminding one of this historic environment. A bedside desk may be the perfect place for writing those overdue love letters or catching up on the latest e-mail. Hidden behind pocket doors is a private cozy bathroom.
