“Loved Everything”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2011

What a lovely place to stay and what gracious host and hostess. The perfect accommodations for two older love birds celebrating our fortieth anniversary. Thanks to Marty and Michael (who anticipate your needs before you do) our "romantic getaway" at the Aerie B&B is a memory we will cherish forever!

We had the best time at the Aerie. After reading other reviews, we chose to come to New Bern just to stay there, and it did not disappoint! Breakfast was great, there are so many things in walking distance, and I always enjoy a complimentary glass of wine in the evening. Just lovely!

My wife and I stayed here for one night, 2 weeks ago, it is definitely one of the top 3 B&B's we have ever stayed at, this is the only place I would ever consider staying at again if I am in New Bern or the vicinity. Everything about this place is a 5 star experience!

From the moment we called and talked to the gracious owners to the time we walked out of this magnificent B & B, I felt like a Queen. The place is idyllic and romantic with special touches everywhere from the soap to the buttery soft sheets. Our breakfast was served to us like we were royalty and it was so so good and delicious. We were blessed to have had a cancellation and I am so grateful we were able to get in at the last moment.

Room Tip: Magnolia is beautiful

Marty and Michael were the best hosts! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in their beautiful home! It is a charming Victorian house. A lovely added touch was the complimentary glass of wine and canapes which were served each evening.

There was also a huge selection of movies on DVD and video which you could borrow to watch in your room (we loved the King's speech - we hadn't managed to catch it at the cinema before our trip).

The room we were allocated was beautifully decorated, and the sheets on the bed were very clean and lovely and soft (they also have them for sale).

The breakfast in the morning was fit for a king, I had french toast which came with lovely crisp bacon and fresh fruits, and my boyfriend had some lovely pancakes.

I would definitely stay here again, and would recommend that anyone wanting to stay in New Bern try out the Aerie BB!

we stayed here for a business adventure, we were so surprised to sleep on one lousy mattress. PLEASE invest a little money on some new beds...... we both have back problems and truly we were miserable after that sleepless night. READY to get home to a great mattress. This place isnt all that GREAT, as it seems to be....

Also a dog there, a never told truth until you arrive....Unacceptable... what about allergies and asthma people, inconsiderate.... will never go back.....

My partner and I recently spent three nights at The Aerie B&B. The trip was mostly pleasure with a little business mixed in. Our stay was wonderful! From the moment we were greated by the hosts upon our arrival, to the last minute we left, we felt very taken care of and pampered. The beds were super comfortable and a welcoming after a five hour drive from VA. Although we arrived past 9 p.m. the hosts were still gracious and helpful. Everything from the maps and advice on late night dining to the wonderful breakfast and evening social made our stay superb! Michael and Marty are meticulous and the beauty of their home and demeanor complement the southern charm that Newbern has to offer.

Room Tip: The Basin Room has an awesome shower!
