This was my first time staying at a B&B and I have to say it exceeded my expectations. I was in town for business and there are very few options to choose from, so I thought what better time to try. Mel and Andy made me feel so comfortable from the moment I got there. The accommodations were so clean... More

Foreman House exemplifies attention to detail and friendliness. Even before we arrived, we phoned to ask where to eat lunch in Elizabeth City, and Andy directed us to the Cypress Point Grill. We were thrilled at the historic house itself; it has been restored beautifully. It’s clear that Mel and Andy have a great eye for design without sacrificing comfort.... More

We came to The Foreman House because it was rated highly in TripAdvisor, we left feeling like part of the family and that we had made lifelong friends. Mel and Andy could not have been better hosts, opening up not only their home to welcome us but making us feel like we were visiting old friends. The house itself is... More

What an exceptional experience! Andy & Mel do not know a stranger and their house is so beautifully appointed down to the very last detail. You immediately get the feeling that you belong and they go out of their way to make your stay superlative without ever seeming to be working at it. You cannot go wrong staying here. It... More

This was our first visit to the Foreman House in Elizabeth City. We have visited B & B's in the states and internationally and this is one of the best. We had a great and relaxing experience......Good ole southern hospitality from the time you walk in the door until the final breakfast departure. The breakfast was fabulous (loved the apple... More

This was an overnight stop on our way to the Outer Banks from Atlanta, GA. After a very long day of driving we were greeted with southern hospitality and charm at the Foreman House B&B. Mel ordered and picked up dinner for us. There was wine and cheese waiting for us in the parlor along with great conversation, and an... More

This is a property worth going out of your way to visit. A beautifully elegant and spacious home with period antiques and soft music it is an exceptional value for a B and B. The grounds are well maintained and worth strolling in the late afternoon with a cocktail from the well stocked bar unless you would prefer to take... More

This was such a great experience! Mel and Andy are the best. Their years of experience in operating three of their own bed and breakfast inns is evident in every facet of this place. The inn is beautiful, the furnishings are exquisite, the food is excellent and the hosts are amazing. I look forward to returning...asap.

My partner and I spent 3 nights at The Foreman House B&B. Everything about our stay was memorable. Andy and Mel are delightful hosts with topnotch service and accommodations to back it up. There is a definite finesse reflected in the overall ambiance. I would enthusiastically recommend The Foreman House to anyone willing to appreciate a world class lodging experience.... More
