Stayed at the Moss House for one night in August 2014. This is a delightful old Victorian with spacious clean guest rooms and we had a very comfortable bed -- slept like a rock. The inn keepers were very accommodating even with our finicky eating requirements.

Just returned from my first visit to Washington, NC with a wonderful, relaxing stay at Moss House B&B. My husband and I travelled with another couple and we stayed in the 2 King bed rooms at the Inn. Large, comfortable, immaculate are just a few adjectives that describe our accommodations! Comfy beds with lots of pillows, fluffy towels and bathrobes... More

We just returned from a lovely weekend at the Moss House. This was our first stay at a B&B, and my husband was a little concerned that he wouldn't enjoy the experience. The Innkeeper, Scott, immediately put us at ease and made us feel welcomed and comfortable. He showed us to our room and we were blown away at how... More

I just got back from staying at this Inn for about the third time. It is a charming, well appointed inn in a nice little town. The proprietors are amazingly wonderful and their breakfast was awesome. I highly recommend that if you are in Eastern North Carolina that you stop by and experience this wonderful inn.

I wanted to get away for the weekend. Easy drive. Not to far from home. TripAdvisor led me to the Moss House B&B. Read the reviews. Have to say they are right on! A beautiful home. Great food and hospitality! Close enough to walk to the water front and Main Street. Beckie, Scott and Bella are so welcoming, accommodating and... More

The Moss House was much more than we expected. Having stayed in hotels, vacation rentals, and B&Bs throughout the world, who knew that this amazing accommodation would now become the favorite among them. From the comfortable yet charming décor and furniture to the well maintained and extremely clean property, we were impressed with Beckie and Scott's attention to detail. Their... More

Beautiful historic home, prime location, comfortable and inviting to a tee. Scott and Beckie (and Bella) couldn't be friendlier or more accommodating. And the food is delicious. You won't regret staying here.

You'll love it. Hosts Beckie and Scott will treat you as welcome and valued guests. Your room will be spotless, your bed comfortable, your bathroom equipped with robes, fresh clean linens, and ample amenities. Beckie clearly enjoys making breakfasts, and you'll enjoy eating them--a fruit course, juices, delicious coffee, homemade breads, entrees including blueberry pancakes or egg dishes. In your... More

We stayed at the Moss House in early June while vacationing through eastern North Carolina. We were very impressed with Moss House. We have stayed in B and B's throughout the U.S. and Europe. This is one of the best: elegant rooms, most comfortable beds, quiet, gourmet breakfast, and graciousness during our stay with Beckie and Scott (Bella counts too,... More
