History of Meadows Inn. Original structure was built in 1847 by John Alexander Meadows and enlarged to it’s three story size in 1900. It began it's history as the premiere Bed & Breakfast in New Bern in 1980. Nestled peacefully in the heart of downtown historic district and walking distance to the Tryon Palace and Garden, excellent restaurants, antique shops, the birthplace of Pepsi, the riverfront convention center and river walk are just a few of the many activities to discover. Plan a trip to New Bern, the second oldest town in the state. The mild weather allows you to enjoy all that New Bern has to offer. You will find something blooming most any time of the year. This faith and family Inn is the perfect base for planning either a quiet, romantic getaway, girlfriend reunion, dinner/theatre, family outing, daytrip to the beach, or simply discover where North Carolina began at the Tryon Palace tour.

The Inn Keeper, Linda, is the best. One can easily tell that she loves what she does. She greeted us with a smile upon our arrival and made us feel right at home. Linda simply made our Veterans Day get away one to remember. Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the breakfast was excellent, and the homemade cookies were delicious. This was our first visit to New Bern and the location of Meadows Inn was perfect as it was within easy walking distance to local establishments. If we return to New Bern, Meadows Inn will be at the top of our list of places to stay as it is the BEST IN NEW BERN.

We recently stayed 6 nights at The Meadows Inn. Our stay was great. The Inn is located less than 2 full blocks from the water. Next door to a restaurant/pub that has outdoor seating. Linda, the Inn Keeper,advised that New Bern has a strict noise ordinance that is effective at 10PM every night. We never heard a sound in our room which was on the side of the bar. The Inn is also located 2 blocks from Middle Street, New Bern's “restaurant row,” with other neat spots along the way. Linda worked with us, as we booked fairly late for a stay that included the Mum Fest weekend. We really appreciated the effort. The rooms are very comfortable, the rooms and bathrooms are spotlessly clean and have excellent soap, shampoo, etc. Breakfast, every morning, was outstanding. A starter course usually includes fruit and yogurt, followed by the main course. Juice, coffee, tea, water also provided. Water, beer and wine are provided all day as are Linda's baked treats. There is a very comfortable common area for sitting and reading, as well as a porch area at the rear of the Inn for relaxing. The Meadows Inn is highly recommended.

This inn was beyond our expectations. It was spotless, bright, quiet, and within walking distance to everything we wanted to see and do. Linda is a great hostess. The breakfasts were not only tasty, they were pretty. I would recommend this gem to everyone!

This Bed and Breakfast home is so beautiful. From the moment we walked in, the owner Linda made us feel right at home. They have wine available to drink, sodas, a sweet treat, popcorn. Nice back porch to relax on. Bedrooms beautifully decorated, very clean. Beds very comfortable. Tv's in every bedroom. The gathering room has a large tv, games to play, lots of books. Breakfast was so delicious plus juices, coffee. I highly recommend this place to stay at.

Perfect location for gathering family members before a weekend wedding. We had the entire top floor suite with two bedrooms and a shared bath and a little sitting area. The Meadows Inn is well located within easy walking distance of the historic town center and also to the riverfront. Breakfast was delicious, and the coffee was really great (bought some to bring home). Afternoon snacks (muffins, etc.) were always available, and a guest fridge stocked water, soft drinks, wine and beer. Linda, the owner, was so helpful with arranging for a late check-in and a late check-out to accommodate all the wedding activities. Warm, friendly, welcoming--what more could you ask for!!

As a solo female traveler, I loved staying at The Meadows Inn. I had a whole private suite to myself, the owner was wonderful in checking in when she saw me and asking if I needed anything. Breakfasts were delicious and filling. There's a whole snack pantry with wine, and during my stay there was a steady supply of homemade baked goods. It's in a wonderful spot to walk all over downtown New Bern. Comfy beds, bath salts in the bathroom, and so much more space and comfort than in a hotel.

The Meadows Inn is the perfect place to stay in New Bern. Linda is an exceptional host. She excelled at making us feel at home for the 3 days we were there and is very knowledgeable about the history and sites of New Bern. The Inn is immaculate, the breakfasts are delicious, and the evening homemade cakes and brownies were a perfect end of the day treat. Off-street parking is a bonus, and it is convenient to walk anywhere in the historic district. We have already recommended The Meadows Inn to friends. Diane and Gary F.
