Discount applied for the month of August!! The Vintage Penthouse is a unique historic apartment in the center of downtown with a huge private rooftop deck. The Vintage Penthouse is a sunny, cheerful, artfully decorated spot in a fantastic location.

Head downstairs to one of Durham's wonderful coffee shops, walk to the farmer's market! Close to many amazing bars and restaurants, a few blocks from DPAC and a mile from Duke. See the Durham Bulls’ fireworks from the deck.

Definitely unique and stylish. Great views, especially at sunset. Walking distance to so many places and easy parking. Ellie puts lots of thoughtful personal touches in the place to make visitors feel more at home. The Vintage Penthouse definitely made the trip memorable.

Sorry to hear that Tim, I'm going to look into this right away! It does take a while to travel up to the rooftop from the basement (where the water heater is) but it should absolutely work after 15 min or so. Thanks for letting me know.
