From the century old history to the convenient location bundled by impeccable charm, you couldn't find a cuter, friendlier place to stay. Amazing food, welcoming staff, clean rooms and bathrooms. A+ 5star

After looking over several B&B’s for a special getaway, we found out quickly that the cream does indeed rise to the top by choosing the Aerie Inn. Simply, it exceeded our expectations! Ivy welcomed us and gave us a complete tour before we settled in to the plush décor of the Basin Street room. We soon met our hosts, Mike... More

We returned to New Bern several years after stumbling upon it on our way to the Outer Banks. We decided to enhance our stay in New Bern by staying in a B&B instead of a chain hotel. We are so glad we did. The Aerie is within walking distance of all of the sites in New Bern. The town is... More

Marty and Mike are wonderful hosts and make the difference for me on my frequent business trips to New Bern. What a difference to the usual hotel boxes in New Bern! Always again at The Aerie! Right down town, all the fine restaurants within walking distance. And what a breakfast! Thank you to Marty and Mike!

We stayed at the Aerie this past weekend and it was great. Marty and Michael are the best hostess and host taking care of every detail and making our stay perfect. We were upgraded to a larger room when we first got there because they had a cancellation which was an extra nice treat for us! The room entire inn... More

This was a spur of the moment visit to New Bern from the mountains of North Carolina. It was blazing hot there but this beautiful B&B was cool, comfortable and welcoming in every way. We wanted to thank Marty and husband Michael for their attentiveness and attention to every little detail. We know first hand how time consuming it is... More

We had a wonderful stay with Mike and Marty at this beautiful B&B. Beautiful, classy, and totally friendly. Located close to all the sights and so accommodating. We will definitely be recommending this stay to our friends and hope to return ourselves.

We recently visited New Bern for the first time for my birthday and found the Aerie while searching the Internet. We have stayed at many B&B's and this one is by far our favorite. Marty and Michael were gracious, helpful and very accommodating. I use a wheelchair and cannot climb steep stairs, so we were lucky that the Carolina room... More

We came down to New Bern for my wife's birthday. I was browsing on Expedia for hotels and happened to run across this B&B. I can highly recommend this B&B, the experience and wonderful staff made it even better. Check-in normally ends at about 6pm but the owners were more then willing to accommodate for our late arrival at 9:20pm.... More

First time visiting New Bern, NC. The birthplace of Pepsi-Cola. Beautiful, quaint city with lots to do and see. Aerie Bed and Breakfast is located in the heart of the city. The staff is amazing! Beautiful outdoor gardens and sitting area and to top it off a wonderful breakfast!
