The Grice-Fearing House is the best bed and breakfast experience we have had in over 25 years of staying in B and B's. Georgene and Vidal Falcon's friendly welcome made us feel like old friends immediately. This was only the beginning of their hospitality which was reflected in the immaculate, comfortable suite with its king bedroom, sitting room and spacious bath as well as their entire home. Every detail was tastefully provided. The Grice-Fearing House has been restored with impeccable taste and care. Guests are encouraged to enjoy the elegant parlor, the library with its cheery fireplace and the sunroom with a garden view. Breakfasts are served in the elegant dining room. Each day of our six-day stay we were treated to absolutely delicious gourmet three-course breakfasts. Early morning coffee was right outside our door as were each evening's sweet treats! Our conversations with Georgene and Vidal at the table or other occasions were a highlight of each day. Elizabeth City was centrally located to explore and enjoy a variety of day trips- Edenton, Outer Banks, Virginia Beach, Dismal Swamp as well as immerse ourselves in the life of EC. The Museum of the Albemarle is a gem as are the galleries and shops in the downtown. We were fortunate to participate in the monthly First Friday ArtWalk. Everywhere we were greeted with true Southern hospitality and charm. It is truly wonderful to know that the Falcons and their home await us for another special visit, We only wish they were closer!!
