“The most amazing experience”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

This was out first time in Elizabeth City, NC. It is such a historic town. The Foreman House B&B was everything that I hoped for and more. The location of the of the house was nestled in a quaint historic community. The room was excellent, clean, spacious and the connecting bathroom was charming. The hosts are so gracious. Our stay truly felt like they welcomed us into their home with the royal treatment: cheese and wine shortly after arrival, delicious coffee by our bedroom door in the morning, and an excellent breakfast before we headed on our way home. One of the owners is an excellent artist, and I was in awe of his paintings. I can't stop telling everyone of how wonderful our experience was. I'm looking forward to my next stay there.

We enjoyed our stay at the Forman House so much! The Charleston Room was roomy and relaxing. The hosts are exactly what makes this B&B stand out from most others. They make you feel at home in their home and the breakfast was wonderful!

Room Tip: We took a look through all the rooms and any of the four would be great for any traveler.

Forman House Bed and Breakfast is one of the nicest bed and breakfasts I have visited. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The breakfast is hearty, delicious and presented in an elegant manor. The owners know how to make one feel at home! I look forward to a return visit.

We've driven by Elizabeth City many, many times on Rt 17 on our way to and from visiting family in Wilmington, NC. On Sunday we had matinee theatre tickets for a show in Norfolk and didn't want to drive back to the Eastern Shore and leave the next a.m. for NC so we opted to stay at the Foreman House. We're planning to return soon as we have now found a base from which to explore the Great Dismal Swamp. Mel and Andy are exceedingly gracious hosts and by the time you leave you feel as if you've been friends for a long time. We love our coffee first thing in the morning and having it right outside our door at 7 a.m. was great. Breakfast food was fresh and delicious. We have stayed in many B & B's and find some just to full of "Americana", not the case here!! Rooms are beautifully decorated but not overwhelmingly so.

Room Tip: We got to see all of the rooms as we were the only guests. They were all roomy and well appointed.

The Foreman House is beautiful and the innkeepers, Mel and Andy, are the perfect hosts. The rooms are tastefully and comfortably furnished, there is coffee outside your door each morning, wine and cheese when you arrive or return in the afternoon. Mel and Andy make quite clear that you are a welcomed guest in their home. My wife and I could not have been more pleased.

We had never stayed at a B&B, so this was our first experience. Boy did we luck up!! Andy and Mel know how to make you feel welcome and at home! Like family!! The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and very yummy. We only got to stay one night, so we plan to come back for another visit and stay longer. I can't imagine every staying in another B&B like Andy and Mel's! I highly recommend The Foreman House!!! Mark and Terry Forrest
