A chance call to the Blooming Garden Inn B&B because it showed up on the GPS led to a most lovely overnight stay in a beautiful historic home in Durham, NC. The home and hosts - Dolly and Frank - were lovely and welcoming. The room was comfortable, full of antiques, history, and the comfort of the bed can best be described as awesome! The room had a door that led to the outside wrap around porch, which was another living space all its own. A pleasant evening and morning were spent relaxing in the glider overlooking the side yard. Breakfast was an appetizing fare of mixed fruit, crepes, 7 grain bread, and a natural honey. After breakfast, Frank was kind enough to provide a tour of another of their properties across the street - the Holly House. The story of the Holly House and its famous guest was quite "entertaining". The Blooming Garden Inn was an experience I hope to relive in the future. I highly recommend this B&B to any traveler.
