The Duke Mansion
An Official Carolina Cooking Sponsor

When you drive up the boxwood lined driveway, catch sight of the beautiful original fountain, and approach the majestic columns and front porch with rocking chairs just waiting for you, you know you are some place special. The Duke Mansion, built in 1915, and tripled in size by its most famous owner, James Buchanan Duke, has been home and host to leaders of the 20th century. Now, it welcomes you to a beautiful and intimate 20 room historic inn and meeting place -- offering an exceptional level of personal service in a garden setting yet only minutes from hustle of downtown Charlotte.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this 32,000 square foot Colonial Revival Mansion is a member of Select Registry and is an AAA four-diamond rated property. Buck Duke's most lasting legacies including Duke University, Duke Energy and the Duke Endowment took shape at the home.

The 20 unique guest rooms are residential in their décor, appointed with beautiful artwork and furnishings, and include a wonderful full breakfast. Rooms feature queen or king sized beds, private baths, exquisite linens, luxurious robes, and you are wished pleasant dreams with a gourmet goodnight treat.

You're making a difference when you choose The Duke Mansion. You will be supporting the preservation and protection of this historic treasure since it is a nonprofit where all of the proceeds are used to preserve and protect it.

The Duke Mansion accommodates events from a private dinner for two to elegant events for 300 and meetings up to 100 people.

An integral part of Myer's Park, one of Charlotte's most prestigious and beautiful neighborhoods, and on 4.5 acres of beautiful grounds, The Mansion has a fully professional culinary staff. Entertaining, meeting and celebrating are easy and special at The Duke Mansion.

Priding itself on excellence and personal service, the staff of The Duke Mansion will be your partner whether you are spending a restful night, celebrating a special family event, or tackling an important business agenda.
