Sail Inn
Ranked #7 of 10 New Bern B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 31, 2011

My husband and I stayed at the Sail Inn over Easter weekend with our son, who was 7 months old at the time. We rented the Beacon Room, and it was spacious and beautiful. The online photos really don't do it justice! We had more than enough space for our luggage and our son's pack and play. The owners, Karen and Michael, were friendly and accommodating and breakfast was delicious both mornings. I would definitely recommend the Sail Inn as the perfect place to stay in New Bern!

This is a very pretty, elegant B&B in New Bern. We were recommended to The Sail by another B&B that was full up, so we called unannounced and received a very warm welcome. Luckily they had a lovely room on the ground floor that was spotlessly clean and very attractively decorated. The hosts were nice people and made a very good recommendation for dinner. I would highly recommend this place.

I arrived with my Fiance and Mother to a great big welcome by Mike and Karen. We occupied 2 of this magnificent Bed and Breakfast Room from March 6-9th and had an amazing time. Mike and Karen (Amazing people) were gracious hosts. The recommended many fun and enjoyable things to do in New Bern. They even prepared a birthday cake with candles for my Fiance's birthday and we had an amazing night. This B&B is within walking distance to downtown New Bern. It is a very easy drive to the ocean and some great sea food. Rooms are kept very clean and have great decor! Awesome Job Mike and Karen!

From the minute we arrived until the minute we left our experience was pure delight. I will just say that we experienced all of the positives mentioned in previous reviews. We were continually surprised at so much of the experience and how it exceeded what could have been expected. Also, the location is very convenient and the price extremely reasonable. Will go back (hopefully soon).

Sail Inn is a charming and nicely appointed B&B, and the host and hostess, Michael and Karen could not have been nicer or more helpful. This is the my second trip to New Bern on business that I have stayed at the Sail Inn. After exausting all the other possible accomodiations in New Bern, I have decided that this is the best place to stay for the money and quality of accomodiation.

The service at Sail Inn was great. Michael provided us with tons of information about the town as soon as we got there, and helped us to focus our short visit. The room was comfortable and clean, the bed was a dream. Our hosts were very generous and upgraded us to a larger room that was vacant, had cookies and chocolates waiting for us in the room, and a good selection of teas, juices and coffee available at all times to us downstairs. Breakfast was fresh and tasty and simple. The Inn is very conveniently located in the heart of the historic district so we didn't need our car until we were leaving town. The neighborhood was so peaceful yet within a minute of all of the shops and restaurants and sound.
