Great location. Walk to all of the places you come to New Bern for. Excellent breakfast. Room very comfortable. Innkeepers very accomodating, letting us stay an extra night (their day off) when the ferry to Oracoke was cancelled. Will return!

This is a beautiful house that the owners have updated with everything you could need. Clean, comfortable room, great location, and a delicious breakfast. It's a short walk to all the sites downtown or for a relaxing walk along the waterfront. We will definitely be staying here again and hopefully very soon.

Friendly hosts, comfy bed, tasty breakfast - comfortable place in every way. New Bern is a clean, quiet, charming town. It's easy to walk around the historic area where we enjoyed the diy architectural tour and the Tryon gardens, This was our second visit and we hope to be back.
