Grice-Fearing House Bed and Breakfast
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 9, 2012

My grandmother and I, a 23 year old college student, stayed at the Grice-Fearing House for two nights during the June month of 2012. We had an 'amazing' experience. The two owners, an exceptionally friendly and warm couple, catered to our every possible need. They were knowledgeable of just about everything located in Elizabeth City, gave great recommendations and prepared fantastic and delicious food. The house was rich with history and had beautiful decor. The dish and silverware was authentic, and yet, exceptional fine china varied each day of our stay. To accommodate our sleeping arrangements, the inn keepers found a way to put me on a bed in another part of the stunning suite, while my grandmother was able to sleep on a soft, comfortable and luxurious large bed in the main part of the room. Her exact words when asked about the bed and breakfast is as follows: "Phenomenal, fantastic, go there!"

We highly recommend the Grice-Fearing House B&B. Our suite and bath were well appointed and impeccably clean. Georgene and Vidal are marvelous hosts. In addition to a delicious gourmet breakfast, we were served wine (and not a puny glass; thanks Vidal!) at 5:00 pm, and a filled ice bucket and cookies were left in the upstairs hallway for us in the evening--such a nice touch! The bed was really comfy, and the bathroom is modern, with a great Jacuzzi. We just went for a weekend getaway, but hope to return in the summer when activities on the river resume. Be sure to see the museum down by the river---it's really well done and it's free. Upon leaving, Georgene shared a breakfast recipe and packed up some chocolate chip bread for us to take home. All in all, this was a memorable B&B experience.

An absolutely wonderful place to stay. The location is fantastic. It puts you right in the middle of everything in Elizabeth City. You can walk to all of the amenities and attractions. The house has been wonderfully restored while maintaining its character and charm. The rooms are great. They are spacious and each has their own updated bathroom. Each room also has a sitting room that gives the accomodations a luxury suite fee. The service was impecable. The host are gracious and eager to give you tips on what to do in Elizabeth City. I look forward to the next time I can make a trip there.

Beautiful restoration of a historic building while incorporating modern bathrooms and other comfort features. The breakfasts were delicious and included a variety of home baked goods and innovative recipes. Our suite (the one with the king bed) was roomy and we enjoyed having our own sitting room for reading and TV. The hosts were warm and gracious and informative about the area. You feel more like a house guest than a customer!

Room Tip: One suite has a king bed, one has a queen, so bed size is the deciding factor.

Being a former resident of Elizabeth City for a short period of time I learned quickly that the people in this town live up to their reputation as being known as the "Harbor of Hospitality." I often wondered what it would be like to stay at this B&B so, when I came back to visit for the Holidays I decided to stay. WOW! What a great experience. The hosts were the best. Attention to detail is well done here. They knew that I would be checking in late because of a party that I was attending in town. I did not have time to stop by and check in before the party, so they stopped by the event and hand delivered a key to me with instructions, how impressive was that!!! Breakfast at it's best! No continental breakfast here, get ready to want to take these hosts home with you. Room, bathroom and entire house has been updated while maintaining its original charm. If you are looking for a restful place where you can rest and feel an overall welcoming experience, you must stay here!

To say that the Grice-Fearing House is a beautifully restored, centrally located structure with fantastic bedding, amazing baked goods and an even more divine breakfast would be certainly be an understatement. But the kindness and graciousness of the owners of the B&B come to the foremost of my mind; they are absolutely an extension of the true Southern hospitality that can be found in Elizabeth City. Look no further for a truly delightful stay in a truly delightful town.
