We spent 2 nights at the Howard House while exploring New Bern. Brenda and Peter were wonderful hosts, and the breakfasts were delicious. We had the turret room, which was immense with delightful views from all windows. All rooms have private baths - and ours was gigantic and stocked with the softest towels and robe.

I booked this entire property for a family gathering. I booked in February, and they called today to let me know that they were closing and not honoring my event reservation. I've already sent out invitations to 40 people about this event. I will now have to send out new invitations. The expense of the invites, plus postage, not to... More

This was our first experience with a B & B as it was for the other couple that went with us. We could not have asked for better service from the comfortable room(Turret room) to the incredible breakfast both mornings. Peter & Brenda are wonderful hosts. Would love to go back sometime. The Cains

My sister and I arrived in New Bern a day early and needed a place to stay on very short notice. Howard House was recommended and they were able to accommodate us. The host and hostess were both very friendly, pointing out places to visit and restaurants at which to eat. The accommodations were very comfrortable and felt friendly. It... More

Upon arrival you are greeted by the most genuine innkeeper and if you are lucky their delightful cat. Snacks are available with homemade fudge in your room. The room I stayed in was delightful - great lighting and mirror in the bathroom - quiet and very restful - bed was soooo comfortable. The common parlor downstairs was an easy place... More

My wife said that when she got into our room. Cannot say enough about the Howard House that others haven't already said. Kim made us feel so at home in the house. The afternoon snack was right on time, sodas were in the frig for guests, cake left out after hours for a late night indulgence. Kim had coffee out... More

This is a fantastic B&B! The lovely, large, clean rooms and excellent location would be enough to earn a good review, but the food and the people truly put this place over the top. Not only do you get a huge, delicious breakfast, but you also get wine and snacks in the afternoon, and homemade desserts at night. Our hostess,... More

We absolutely loved our stay at this B &B. Kim and crew have thought of everything and it's the personal touches that made us feel right at home. We parked our car and were able to walk to everything. Tryon Palace and great restaurants are within a few blocks. Cozy, comfortable and relaxing. I highly recommend staying at the Howard... More

I stayed here for a week on business because the location, amenities and price were exactly what I needed to be very productive. I booked the Carriage House Guest Suite which was spacious, quiet and comfortable. When I arrived I was pleasantly surprised that the reviews I had read and the pictures I saw were an understatement. Breakfast was equally... More
