For the next two days our fearless leaders (Colin & Deanna) will be taking a staycation. For them, this means sleeping in (not cooking breakfast), meandering around Durham and eating at all their favorite places. 

On their list of things to do: 
1) Elmo's Diner for Biscuits & Gravy
2) Four Square for a heavenly meal
3) Check out the holiday trees outside the DPAC
4) Head to their favorite Indian restaurant, Zayka, for lunch and some shopping in the Brier Creek area

It will be great for them to get some rest and relaxation as we have a full house for Christmas and New Years! Don't worry though, we have brought reinforcements (Deanna's Mom) for the next couple of days (Deanna's Mom) to cook breakfast and help run the Inn. 

I hope you aren't reading this because that means you are technically WORKING!

Holiday Cheer!

We adore all of our guests that visit us. Being across the street from Duke's Campus, we work with many faculty and staff at the University and have made great relationships with many of the departments.  Since our opening, our tradition has been to "make like Santa" and drop off goodies to many of the wonderful people that have made reservations with us or held events at the Inn. This holiday season, we included our delicious chewy chocolate chip gingerbread cookie (our current check-in cookie) and the caramel shortbread bars (addicting) with our home made hot cocoa mix! We love to spread cheer across campus and just say "thanks"!

If we didn't stop in at your department, you probably got our home made ginger ale and cookies over the summer! Our list has grown and we will see you in the summer. Thank you for your patience!

We can not thank Duke University enough for their patronage and support for the Inn!
