“Phenomenal B & B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

The Grice-Fearing House B & B is one of a kind. If you are looking for elegance, comfort, privacy, great food, cleaniness, wonderful owners, and just an all around phenomenal experience, this is the place for you. This was our 6th time staying at the Grice-Fearing House B & B and I have to say that it just keeps getting better if that is even possible. We were so pleased the very 1st time that we stayed that we have gone back year after year and it is still absolutely wonderful! The view from the 2nd floor balcony is just awesome! This is our one get-away that we so look forward to and we know that it would be the same for you too! Check it out!

Room Tip: They have two rooms and the "blue room" has the jetted hot tub in the bathroom!

We lucked out and got a return call from the GFH, left a message with others as their phone was not answered. Turns out we stayed at a very remarkable and elegant B&B with wonderful hosts that were engaging and enjoyable to talk to. We had a great breakfast (she has some award-winning recipes) and met another couple that we enjoyed. We'll definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: The queen room upstairs was very comfortable and spacious

Loved the room, food and innkeepers. Room was very comfortable. The sitting room was also a bonus. Would certainly stay again. The view from the upstairs porch was nice & relaxing in the rocking chairs.

We have children in the area and stayed at the Grice-Fearing House on our recent visit. A treat all around!! We have stayed in B&Bs throughout the country and think this is the best we've found. It is comfortable, beautifully restored, conveniently located, and the proprietors are warm and engaging. We plan to stay again on return visits!

My husband & I really enjoyed our weekend in Elizabeth City at the Grice-Fearing House B&B! It is the oldest house in the town, on the historic register, & very convenient to restaurants, downtown, & the water. Vidal & Georgene Falcon, proprietors, were gracious & welcoming. Our suite was lovely, clean, the bed was very comfortable, & had everything we needed & more. The breakfast was delicious--coffee was brought up so we could have a cup before breakfast . We enjoyed the 2nd story porch with rocking chairs & a swing--took me back to my grandmother's front porch. If you're going to Elizabeth City, NC, be sure to stay here!

Room Tip: We were in the Fearing Suite---very quiet & comfortable.

We stayed over the weekend when we were in Elizabeth City for a friend's wedding. Basically, I'm not sure it could have been better. We were greeted at the door when we arrived, our room was very cozy, the beds were nice, all amenities were excellent (which we had worried about given that the house is one of the oldest in the area, but of course has been extensively renovated), and we were pleased with being welcomed with a personalized message board downstairs. Breakfast was definitely a highlight - it was gourmet food in a casual environment. You won't go wrong - we would definitely stay again.

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!"
