Mike and Karen went beyond their normal duties to help us enjoy our stay. The Inn is quiet, peaceful and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to everyone. Thank you Michael and Karen for making our stay such a pleasure!

Sail Inn is an excellent small B and B in an absolutely perfect location near the Tryon Palace entrance and within easy walking distance of the historic downtown in New Bern and excellent restaurants. Our room was spacious, tastefully decorated and very comfortable, with a king-size bed and love seat sofa. Mike and Karen are gracious hosts and have provided... More

We drove all day and arrived past 6 p.m., but had no problems checking in that late. Mike & Karen were very helpful, recommending places to visit in town. We parked our car and walked to most of our destinations while visiting. Loved eating breakfast out on the front porch. Breakfast was very delicious and varied. I would stay here... More

They even assisted in getting breakfast for my wife's special dietary needs. Great hosts! The location is perfect for walking downtown to all the shops and restaurants. The house has been remodeled very nicely and... More

My husband and I decided to get away and head for New Bern. We had not been to New Bern in over 20 years. We found Sail Inn on line and decided to stay there for our long weekend. It was a wonderful experience. Sail Inn is walking distance to restaurants, Tryon Palace, and it is in the Historic District... More

Lovely room in walking distance to shops and restaurants. We parked our car and took a walk around town and... More

The Sail Inn is a lovely restored home with 3 guest rooms and a great front porch for sitting and swinging! Michael and Karen are as friendly as you'll find and super accommodating. I look forward to my next visit with them.

Yes, I want to go back. Mike and Karen know how to make travelers feel at home. An artist friend and I stayed at this charming inn last weekend and were treated like royalty!

My artsy buddy and I traveled to New Bern, NC for an art adventure and stumbled upon a real gem of a Bed and Breakfast, The Sail Inn. Innkeepers, Mike and Karen added a most personal touch to our stay beginning with our phone inquiry all the way through post check-out since we made our reservations directly through their inn....
