“Grice-Fearing B&B=A+”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

What do you get when you mix a beautiful and historic home, excellent food, and superlative hospitality? No stone was left unturned and the bed was extremely comfortable. Georgene and Vidal are the best. A+!!

I was thrilled to discover this historic B & B while in Elizabeth City for work. Everything was perfect--the combination of authentic charm with the convenience of the modern. I never expected to get wireless! Georgene and Vidal was such gracious hosts that I felt as if I were staying in a home, and the breakfast was, quite simply, divine. I can't wait to go back!

My husband I stayed here after a trip on the Carolina Loop through the Great Dismal Swamp on our boat. We have stayed in lots of B & B's and the Grice-Fearing House rates right at the top. The historic house is beautiful. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable with lots of special touches. The food was wonderful, served in the beautiful dining room on fine china. Georgene and Vidal are such gracious hosts. We would highly recommend a stay for a night away or if you are passing through the lovely town of Elizabeth City. Thank you for the hospitality!

The Grice-Fearing House is a treasure in so many ways. Georgene and Vidal, our hosts, are ideal Inn Keepers as they love what they do and it shows in everything they touch. They pay attention to every part of the experience. We loved the porches and our very elegantly decorated and comfortable bedroom. They are amazing cooks and it was just one great dish after another. If you want to feel special and pampered, this is the place to go. Elizabeth City is another great find in the state of NC. We had no idea how much if had to offer and how much we enjoyed ourselves. We talk often talk fondly of our visit there and how we certainly must go again.

We stayed at the Grice-Fearing House a few years ago. What a beautiful house, so lovingly cared for and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the sitting room off the bedroom; such spacious accommodations! Our hosts, Georgene and Vidal cooked up DELICIOUS meals; what an elegant dining room! They gladly shared with us the history of the house and the history of the renovations. The wide-planked wooden floors in one part of the house are historic. What a beautiful library! There were a lot of small touches that impressed us, including the NC-themed tar heel cookies that awaited us upon our arrival. Georgene and Vidal shared a lot of tips about local "things-to-do". We enjoyed the Elizabeth City maritime museum and a lot of little artsy shops (got some great deals!). Also, drove around to see some other near-by communities. An easy weekend getaway from the DC area; we definitely recommend it!

Room Tip: There are two rooms at this B&B. You can't go wrong with either one of them.

Absolutely wonderful stay at the Grice-Fearing House. From the onset, you can tell this exquisite home is a labor of love for Georgene and Vidal, the most gracious of hosts. Every detail from the in-room Waterford wine glasses to the china at breakfast was over the top! Highly recommend for a night away or if just passing through Elizabeth City.

Room Tip: Grice-Fearing has two suites, a Queen & a King. With only two, you get the host's full atten...

We loved every part of our stay at The Grice-Fearing House! Vidal and Georgene are wonderful hosts and the house is amazing. The B&B is laced with bits of history and elegantly decorated from top to bottom. We loved the jacuzzi, gardens and porches. The best part was breakfast, which was eggs Benedict, perfectly cooked. Georgene has recipes featured in Southern Living and we can see why. We can't wait until we have another chance to stay here. Thank you for the hospitality!
