It’s that time of year again! Back to school! This weekend as we were hosting a gorgeous wedding weekend for Gina & Cory, it seems that the university population was slowly trickling back into the Durham area. Large crowds of fresh faces (who don’t make a single line if someone is walking the other way…still young!) lined 9th Street and Brightleaf Square. While many people know us as a luxury boutique Inn, many are surprised that we are literally a stone’s throw away from East Campus where all Duke freshman live. Our porch looks at the green area and gazebo of the University! In fact, many that stay with us request the view of the campus (i.e. The Crews Room, Moss Room, Howerton Room or Woodard Room)
In the next several weeks, we will have many parents (both freshman and beyond) stay with us so that they can help their children move in. While it can be a tough day, these lucky parents can return to the Inn for some rest and relaxation.  In the morning, their university bound student can join them for a full hot breakfast (if they aren’t ready to tackle the Dining Hall)! We are proud to have such strong ties with the University, the Student Affairs office among many other Duke departments recommend us for accommodations:

We wish all freshman and their families a swift and pain free move in this August!
