Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Charlotte, North Carolina’s The Duke Mansion bed-and-breakfast combines Southern charm and modern amenities in a beautiful setting. Built in 1915 and named after its most famous owner, James Buchanan Duke, The Duke Mansion was nearly lost in 1996 before being acquired and subsequently converted into a bed-and-breakfast by The Lynnwood Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to preserving the historic site.
Guests will delight in the serenity of The Duke Mansion’s 4½ acres of gardens and grounds while staying in one of its 20 sophisticated guest rooms. The bed-and-breakfast offers several rooms with traditional sleeping porches where guests can enjoy their morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. All rooms have private baths and queen- or king-size beds. Exquisite linens, luxurious robes, and fine toiletries await, and the night never ends without a tasty bedside treat.
Visitors may easily stroll to nearby shops or restaurants or take in the surrounding architecture in Uptown’s historic neighborhoods. For a more relaxing getaway, simply curl up on one of the screened-in porches with a good book and a glass of iced tea.
