The Blooming Garden Inn Hotel Review

: This bed and breakfast is located in the Triangle district a few minutes from Duke University. It has four suites and an extended-stay facility---Holly House---which requires a one-week minimum booking. The property is surrounded by an open porch, a well-landscaped yard and beautiful blooming gardens. Many of the accommodations have their original coal-burning fireplaces and oak mantles. The furniture is antique and the bedding is firm, with goose-down pillows. Some of the rooms have Jacuzzi tubs. With the exception of the Morning Glory Suite, TV viewing is restricted to the parlor on the first floor. Smoking is allowed only outside---if lighting up is a must, check into the Ivy Room (with porch access) or the Morning Glory (with a balcony). A gourmet breakfast is included in your stay.
