BRIDES BEWARE. I planned my stay with my mom and 7 bridesmaids for the night before our wedding ONE YEAR IN ADVANCE. It seemed like a perfect spot to get ready with the moms and maids. The home was previously owned by a ship captain, and it fit perfectly in with my nautical themed wedding (we were getting married at...

We appreciate that weddings are stressful occasions and that brides often let details slip. One issue on arrival was parking across the street from the B&B a few yards from a sign indicating no parking on that side of the street. A neighbor often reports such matters to the police. By having the cars moved into the yard, we saved...

Cultured and educated hosts and an amazing house. We stayed only one night - wish we'd stayed longer to take in more of New Bedford and the local flavor. The room was wonderfully furnished and breakfast was outstanding. Thank you!

Many thanks for your kind words. Although it happens infrequently, we especially enjoy welcoming guests who come from places where we’ve lived – including Michigan. That happenstance provides the basis for some interesting breakfast conversations. We’d love to have you return for that second night to continue exchanging ideas.

We were in New Bedford for a good friend's wedding at the Whaling Museum and didn't want to stay in something corporate like a Marriott in such an old and eclectic city. We actually checked TripAdvisor, and went with the number one rated B&B. We are very glad that we did. The house is old and creaky and beautiful. The...

Thanks for writing in ! We love it when we can help folks who stay with us, when they come to New Bedford to share a memorable moment with friends or family, learn that this wonderful old city offers far more in the line of great restaurants, distinctive museums and unique shopping for antiques or foodstuffs.

Al and Suzanne made our stay at their lovely B&B most enjoyable. The house is beautifully finished and the room most comfortable.

One of the joys of owning a B&B is the opportunity to meet people who share our interests and/or experiences. We had a great opportunity to talk and share. Fabulous guests!

How often can one experience family history in a place one has never been? Orchard Street Manor is loaded with history, beauty, eclectic art and two of the most enjoyable highly educated innkeepers one could ask for? But do we love B&B's because of the hosts or because the place if spotless, comfortable, quiet, safe? I suspect both and Orchard...

What a wonderful visit we had when a guest’s family background intersected that of the house’s first owner! We traded historical information about captains of the same whaling ship and scions of whale oil manufacturers of old New Bedford. Great fun! Please do come back!

We recently spent a night in New Bedford on our way from New York to Maine. My husband had been stationed in New Bedford when he was in the coast guard and wanted to visit, but had described it as a "rough town," so I was a bit dubious. My worries were quickly put to rest, both by the town...

I called on short notice. A room was available. The B&B is a decent location, well presented, well maintained and the room was comfortable. The breakfast was very good and not institutional but rather prepared and presented with care and pride. The most outstanding point is the hosts, both of whom are highly personable, with excellent local knowledge and a...

On the way to the Cape, we decided to take an extra day and see some more of the coast. We found the web site for the Orchard Manor house to be inviting and the rooms to be well appointed. We were not disappointed in the rooms. We choose the Green Room which was nicely decorated, spacious and very clean....

My wife and I stayed here for two nights. It is a pretty, well-maintained B&B. The host, Al, was very gregarious and regaled with stores and history of the home. We stayed in the Blue Room which was spacious, but sounds could be easily be heard through the door to the joining room. My neighbor joked to me that she...

Again I had the pleasure of staying with Al Saulniers and finally meeting his wife Suzanne, whom I wished lived down the block from me in CT so we could continue our conversations.
