Pork, Pickles, and Peanuts: Tastes of North Carolina

There is nothing better than a good food festival in the summer and the Duke Homestead knows how to do it right. This weekend they will be hosting their annual "Pork, Pickles, and Peanuts: Tastes of North Carolina" event. This free event celebrating North Carolina food culture and history is one you will not want to miss.

North Carolina food festival

The heart of the festival center's around the highly competitive Barbecue Cook-Off and ends with the sweet treat that is the Pie Competition. Taste all that North Carolina has to offer and join in on the judging by voting for the People's Choice Award. When you're nice and full with North Carolina food, you can spend the rest of your time enjoying live local music from six different North Carolina artists. You could also spend your time shopping among the many local arts and crafts vendors set up throughout the festival grounds.

Located a quick ten minutes down the road from our North Carolina inn, the festival runs Saturday, July 11th from 10 am to 4pm. This will leave you plenty of time to finish off your North Carolina food journey at the Arrowhead Inn with our very own Chef Phil.

Check out our Dining Specials and seasonal packages for your stay at the Arrowhead Inn. We look forward to having you!

Stay the entire day or arrive in downtown Raleigh right before the impressive fireworks display.


Of course, you can always skip the fireworks and spend a quiet evening at our Durham, North Carolina Bed & Breakfast. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, the Arrowhead Inn will surely help you relax and get away for the holiday weekend.

Need Coffee? Durham is "Most Caffeinated City!"


If you’re one of those folks who just can’t function until you’ve had your first (or fifth) cup of coffee than you’ll fit right in here in Durham, NC. A recent poll named Durham the United States’ “Most Caffeinated City,” beating out perennial perky favorites such as Portland and Seattle. It’s no surprise that Durham has a deep love for the coffee bean as we have two local roasters that make brews you’ll want to have every morning. Joe Van Gogh roasts in Hillsborough but you can grab a mug of joe made from their delicious beans here in Durham. Another roaster, Counter Culture Coffee, not only roasts their beans in the area but also offers a coffee education program and coffee cuppings every Friday at their training centers.
Durham top coffee city
Whether it takes black coffee, a cappuccino,
or something even stronger to get you
going, Durham has it!

At our luxury Durham bed and breakfast we will start your morning off right with a gourmet breakfast (with bottomless coffee refills!) but if you’re like the rest of us in Durham you’ll need another cup before noon and maybe another after! Here are some of our favorite places to get your fix:

Scratch Bakery: The ideal spot to grab a cappuccino and pastry, this downtown bakery features Intelligentsia Coffee

Intrepid Life: This coffee shop near Duke’s east campus is a non-profit operation where you can use your love of caffeine to support programs and services that help veterans transition to civilian life

Cocoa Cinnamon: For something a little different check out the espresso drinks at this funky spot which also features single-origin sipping chocolate
