Our stay at the Aerie was far beyond what we expected. We felt as though we were very welcomed guests in Marty and Michaels home. Everything from their hospitality, the cleanliness of room and spectacular breakfast; couldn't be better. We look forward to returning to New Bern and staying at the Aerie again. Very inviting, warm and truly lovely. Carol... More

Due to 30 years of vacationing and required travel, my wife and I have stayed in too many hotels and rental units to count but we have never stayed in a B&B. Last week was our very first time at a Bed and Breakfast and it will not be our last. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and she had... More

We had the opportunity to be in New Bern NC for a couple of days and I enjoy trying out different B&B's. I had never stayed at this B&B in New Bern but definitely would stay at this property again. We originally signed up for The Aerie through the Charm package that is offered through the New Bern CVB and... More

We cannot say enough about The Aerie B&B and the owners, Marty and Michael Gunhaus. Our room was beautiful. The wine and cheese served in the afternoon was a great time to get to know Marty and Michael and hear about all that New Bern has to offer. Breakfast was both beautiful and delicious. A tour in Michael's 1929 Model... More

Stopped in New Bern to visit a former neighbor and attend her husband's 80th birthday parties. The Aerie B&B was a perfect place to be. It is right downtown and so close to everything New Bern has to offer. A warm spring weekend made it more enjoyable and the hosts were very welcoming. You can see the pride they put... More

With-in walking distance to all the historic sites of this former capital of North Carolina with a host and hostess that makes you feel right at home. We decided with the room away from the main house for added privacy and living room to entertain. With a private kitchen, we felt right at home. The bed was soft and welcoming... More

The Aerie House is beautiful, comfortable, and owned by the nicest couple you would ever want to meet. That is without even talking about the great breakfast served in elegant style each morning. If you get there be sure to take a tour in the Model A, it is well worth the effort.

When my husband and I decided to spend a night in New Bern, I knew I wanted to stay within easy walking distance of the historic downtown. I researched lodging locations, and The Aerie B&B seemed to be the best located lodging for walking access to museums and downtown. But I had given up staying at B&Bs after too many... More
