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

Great experience. Mel and Andy have a beautiful, clean B&B and make every effort to ensure that your stay is a comfortable one. The breakfast was fantastic and the wine hour was a plus. Very close to downtown as well.

This is in the heart of the historic area. Beautiful fresh flowers, lovely art work ( some by Andy), breakfast that is fresh and hot served on lovely China atop gorgeous table linens. No detail...

We had the nicest B&B's at the Foreman House. We arrived on a tandem bike shortly after a harrowing experience in a thunderstorm, and Mel took exceptional care of us. He helped us with our gear, showed us to a huge room on the 2nd floor, and then invited us to join him for a cocktail. He insisted on driving... More

We came to Elizabeth City by boat but didn't want to stay on the boat overnight as it was choppy. Mel came to the marina and picked us up. The house is an 1890's wonder and the interior is amazing. Mel and Andy are the proprietors and they make you feel instantly like you are at home. Wine and cheese... More

My wife and I combined a business/anniversary trip to Elizabeth City; we just love the charm of this small town. Mel and Andy went out of their way to make our stay memorable.

The Foreman House Bed & Breakfast is tastefully decorated, spotless, and provides a comfortable setting for a restful evening. Mel and Andy are exceptional inn keepers. Along with making our stay comfortable, their freshly prepared breakfast was... More

It was the perfect place for a quaint small wedding. All guests were extremely pleased with the beautiful accommodations. The art work and decor was fantastic. It felt cozy and welcoming. Delicious and bountiful breakfasts were served beautifully by the owners.
