Wonderful but brief experience at this Inn. The location is completely walkable. Near the water side and near shops and restaurants. The host was warm and welcoming. The rooms and public spaces were clean and comfortable. Thanks for a nice experience. I will be back.

Our first visit to New Bern did not disappoint and neither did the Meadows Inn!! Beautiful house in a great location for walking to the downtown area and along the river. Room was very comfortable and the breakfast each morning was wonderful! Linda, the innkeeper, was a delight and made us feel very welcome. I would highly recommend the Meadows Inn and New Bern!

I had never been to New Bern before, and I had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before. So I decided to give the Meadows Inn a try and was quite pleased. We stayed two nights, and the property is right downtown- our car never moved from check-in to check-out. There is ample parking in the rear- not all of their competitors can say that. Our innkeeper Ann was a delight, very personable and a fabulous cook. We stayed during the week and had the entire place to ourselves, which was super cool. The room was nice and met all of our needs. I would highly recommend the Meadows Inn to any travelers. A great value for a fair price.

My girlfriend and I recently spent four days in New Bern and stayed at the Meadows Inn (one day more than we planned). This was a spur-of-the-moment trip and were pleased that we were able to find accommodations. We inquired about vacancies late Thursday for Friday through Monday and the owner, Linda, answered calls and called back very quickly. The rate we were quoted was reasonable and we decided that this was something we wanted to do...regardless of the current pandemic. We arrived late Friday evening (8:45) and Linda was waiting for us to get us settled in. What a great beginning!!!! We arrange for breakfast at 7:30am, headed to our room, unpacked and headed out for a quick dinner. Linda had a few suggestions and said we should hurry as most places close at 9pm. Downtown New Bern streets are closed Friday and Saturday nights to accommodate diners. We found a place that had indoor seating (it was a warm and humid evening) and ate a delicious, reasonably priced meal. After walking downtown for a little while we decided it was time to turn in for the night. Our room was perfect! Correct temperature although the bed was a little on the firm side for us but nonetheless comfortable. Breakfast the next morning (and each subsequent morning) was delicious! Linda cooked these herself but she normally has a helper that does the cooking. She did a fabulous job!!!! Each morning we would have conversations with Linda, and Linda's son and daughter-in-law. Everyone was extremely friendly. While Linda recently acquired this Inn, she has done a fantastic job with both the look and "feel" of the Inn. My girlfriend and I felt extremely comfortable and at-home while staying here. Linda and her family were gracious hosts and set the tone for our trip to this wonderful small town. We will definitely be back in a few months!!!! Thank you Linda and keep up the good work!!!!
