Foreman House B&B is a wonderful place to stay in Eliz. City. The innkeepers are friendly and their attention to detail is impeccable. They offer a level of hospitality that is rare these days. The quality of the food and lodging was great and I found the overall experience absolutely lovely.

Absolutely fantastic! Our room was beautifully decorated and comfortable with an enormous, renovated bathroom. The main house is luxurious; the dining area where breakfasts are served is cozy. We enjoyed the short walk downtown and even managed a morning jog to the harbor. My husband and I were treated like royalty by Mel and Andy, who somehow managed to act... More

I did not stay here, but I did dine here twice during Splash! last week. The leader of our painting workshop and several participants stayed here and arranged for the whole group to have dinner one night and breakfast before class every day. There were several people with dietary restrictions and two celiacs in the group. Andy and Mel took... More

Mel and Andy were the most gracious inn keepers I have ever experienced. The Foreman House is beautiful. Lovely room, wonderful breakfast but most importantly, true southern hospitality! I had a fabulous time and made new friends.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Foreman House on our way to the Outer Banks this summer and it was truly a highlight of our vacation - so much so that I've felt guilty since our stay for not providing a review! Andy was a personable and gracious host who truly went above and beyond to accommodate us. While we... More

I live in Oriental, NC and took a friend to see Edenton and Elizabeth City. I am delighted that I chose to stay at the Forman House B&B. The room was lovely, plenty of luxury towels, clean and comfortable. The hosts' hospitality was the best. Loved waking up to coffee at the bedroom door and then a delicious breakfast downstairs...

Truly a highlight on our trip to the Outer Banks. Foreman House B&B is with in walking distance to down town Elizabeth City. A quaint little seaport with restaurants having a water view. Upon walking into the B&B I felt like I was stepping into a page from Architectural Digest. This home is absolutely beautiful with so many period pieces.... More

We picked the Foreman House based on its reviews and were thoroughly satisfied with every aspect of this lovely B`n B. The house is beautifully preserved, furnished with lovely period pieces, graced with a variety of original art, much of it by host, Mel. The afternoon hospitality was extended to my friends, who were driving back to Kitty Hawk. The... More
