We found this inn when we drove to the center of historic New Castle one evening hoping for a place to stay. Terry House is the only B&B left and there was a room available for us. This place is for travellers who want quaint, historic, quirky owner. It is not for travellers who want neat, tidy, amenities, and mod... More

This was a very old house and really enjoyed hearing the background to it. Very comfortable bed and stay--breakfast was delightful. Yummy Belgian Waffles--owners and other guests there very accommodating. Would definitely stay there again. They have a wonderful 2nd floor porch to sit on in the sun! Right in the middle of Old New Castle, So walking is great!

They managed to fit us in at the last moment in the smallest room in the inn, SMALL it was but hey was there for a wedding and wanted to stay close to the venue. Saw other rooms which were just lovely. The house is eclectic at that. Wonderful breakfast in the morning and the women who works there was... More

The Terry House visit we had was nauseating. First, what should have been the living room, a place to sit and visit with other guests, was like a hoarder's room. (There was no sign asking for patience while they were renovating, this seemed to us the natural state of the room.) Our room was - well dirty and unkempt. The... More

The visit just wasn't what we hoped for, even after reading reviews and the website. Here are a few heads-up: 1. If you're looking for a quiet night's rest, don't stay in the Camellia Room. On the other side of the alley is a bar, and we heard LOUD music late at night. Now that I think about it, we... More

Terry House worked well for me. Great location in charming historic area. I stayed a week, off season.Breakfasts were wonderful, staff and owner very nice. Nice historic building. My room was large and had 12 foot high ceiling which is guaranteed to increase ambiance in my opinion. No central sitting area so I worked in my room or at excellent... More

We had a friends getaway and stayed in a place owned by Terry House, a few blocks up from town. It wa spacious, clean and we kept a little dog there. We had a delicious breakfast at the main house, too, which is beautiful. Our 92 yr old hostess was a real dear, too. Great value and location.

This B&B is a stone's throw away from the bay, but the property has definitely seen better days. While the staff and innkeeper were friendly and attentive, the house is cluttered, window air conditioning not sufficient for summer heat, and there is peeling paint everywhere. There is no parlor or sitting room to relax or chat with others, only the... More

We have been to many B&Bs over the years. The staff was friendly, but Terry House definitely falls into the basic category. Bring your own hair dryer and toiletries. Our room was very clean, but the house is definitely showing it's age. The room had some peeling paint and showed visible water damage by the window. Framed artwork and knickknacks... More

We only stayed one night..we were on our way to North Carolina; but it was very relaxing and quiet. The innkeeper must be in her eighties but is on the ball. Went for a walk to the river where there is a park and then had dinner at a pub (food is excellent) which was two doors down from the... More
