“Better than being at home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

I stayed overnight while in town for business and I think the place is absolutely perfect.....from the manicured grounds to the immaculate house. I had a great time talking with the owners Bernie and Cameron while they were making us the delicious breakfast. I will definitely stay here again.

My husband and I were in town for a wedding, and our stay at Morris Harvey made our trip even nicer than expected. The house itself is beautiful, and our room was comfortable and full of neat antiques. Our room had a private bathroom, and although it was rather small, we were grateful for the privacy. The owner and his son were incredibly nice and hospitable, and made delicious breakfasts each morning and cookies and lemonade in the evenings. They even sent some extra cookies along for our friends to celebrate their wedding night! Our only complaint - and it's a small one - is that the switches for the fan and light in our room were old and wonky, so it took a good bit of fiddling to get them turned on and adjusted. Other than that, everything was perfect, and we'll happily stay here again the next time we're in Fayetteville.

Dear Beth and James,

Thank you so much for your informative review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and mentioned some of the extra goodies we offer our guests to make them feel at home. We are very sorry to hear about the issues with the light/fan switch in your room. Unfortunately, the switch has been stripped over time and the manufacturing company who originally made them, is no longer in business. We are currently looking for a way to fix this issue, and it will be fixed within the coming days. Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you soon!

We stayed one night at the Mortis Harvey House and it was great. We were traveling south and made Fayetteville a hal way point. The house is walking distance from great restaurants! Will definitely stay here again! Thanks Bernie for your hospitality!

Morris Harvey B&B is the exact halfway point on my drive from Pittsburgh to my parent's home in NC. Recently stayed here, coming and going, and the place is immaculate, the proprietors wonderful (rushed to get me ice for a sore knee when I first arrived), and there are fresh berries at breakfast. (The latter is my litmus test!) There's nothing worse than spending the night in a "parking lot hotel" along a major highway, and waking up to packaged cereal and eggs and bacon, and only if you are very lucky, a banana. Here you are staying in a B&B surrounded by yard and big trees, with a charming sidewalk-laden town with very interesting restaurants a pleasant walk away.

We stayed at the Morris Harvey House B & B for my husband's birthday getaway. It is within walking distance of great restaurants, an antique mall across the street, and is a lovely place to be. Bernie is a great host, friendly and helpful. The Pineapple French Toast was delightful, and the bed comfortable. We stayed in Rosa's Suite. We want to go back again when the weather is warm. We ate at our favorite Cajun restaurant, Gumbo's on Court Street. Fayetteville is a neat small town.

Room Tip: Rosa's Suite is on the first floor if you don't want to climb steps.

We're so glad we were able to make your husband's birthday an even more special time than usual! It's especially great to hear you liked your breakfast so much -- the Pineapple French Toast is the house specialty! We were more than happy to be your hosts during your visit to our town, and we can't wait to see you again soon.

All the best,
Bernie, BJ, and Cameron

My mom, sister and I stayed in the 3rd floor Loft Suite at the Morris Harvey Bed & Breakfast in the off season (Feb. 1st), and there was just a couple staying as well, so it was nice and quiet. We had the tv room, sitting area, kitchen w/ dishware and a small fridge for communal use. The friendly and knowledgable owner lives in the nearby cottage, and is readily available for assistance, but you are afforded a nice amount of privacy and space. The owner said the loft's three bed situation was set to be improved immediately after our stay, as the suite was being taken out of commission for a few weeks. Good news because one of my few complaints was the cute twin bed I occupied tended to tilt wildly side to side, due to the mattress being to big for the box springs I suspect. The loft has its own temperature control, separate from the rest of the house, which is a welcome convenience. As it is made up of the whole third floor of a historic, interesting shaped house, guests (especially tall ones) really need to mind their heads. But even though there was an occasional absent-minded head bump on the irregular shaped ceilings, we found it perfectly charming. The bathroom is nice and large, could use a touch of updating in some areas, but the modern shower/tub, with its waterfall fixture and switch-controlled heater directly outside of the shower door, is fantastic. A sideboard buffet is served in the morning along with pleasant conversation with the owner, and any help you may need with local area info. A perfect base for Bridge Day or local sightseeing, also within walking distance of the ridiculously good Secret Sandwich Society restaurant.

It sounds like you and your family had a terrific time here, Tiffany Desiree! We're so glad to hear it. We were more than happy to host you all and help with any and all Fayetteville-related info. Sorry to hear you bumped your heads a few times, but a 112-year old house is bound to have a few...irregularities, right? Thanks for being so understanding about it.

All in all, we're thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay so much. Here's hoping we see you again soon!

All the best,
Bernie, BJ, and Cameron

My room was average and dusty. The inn keeper was not on site when I arrived and gave only basic information. Shower curtain in lovely clawfoot shower was moldy or at least discolored from mold or mildew. With some care and attention this could be an outstanding property and he could charge twice as much.

We're so sorry that your stay with us was not up to your expectations. We strive to make our guests feel right at home upon their arrival with us and we take pride in our property's cleanliness. Check-in time is between 4-7 p.m. and if guests arrive earlier or later than said time, we might not always be available to greet them. We use those other times to run errands and get together other things for the B&B, however, we always try to remain close by and meet with guests as soon as possible. Recently we've made some aesthetic updates on the B&B such as painting our back porch, trim, and furniture. We would love for you to come back and give us another chance to impress you. I can assure you that your last stay with us was just a little hiccup. Thank you so much for your informative review!

Best regards,

Bernie, Cameron, and B.J. Kania
