We spent a delightful two nights at the Harmony House. Ed and Sooki were the perfect hosts! The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. The inn is within one block of both the waterfront and downtown restaurants and shops. The best feature that many have mentioned is the front porch with two porch swings and four rocking chairs. While you are sitting there, a number of residents of New Bern, as well as visitors, speak to you as they pass by. All in all, it was a pleasurable experience!
