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!

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

It was a wonderful experience. Sail Inn is walking distance to restaurants, Tryon Palace, and it is in the Historic District... More

We stayed at Sail Inn on a trip assisting my son to move to NC from VA. We were looking for a quiet place to spend the night after a day of traveling and moving. The Sail Inn was perfect! 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.

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....
