“A Peaceful Pleasure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

Mike and Karen went beyond their normal duties to help us enjoy our stay. The Inn is quiet, peaceful and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to everyone. Thank you Michael and Karen for making our stay such a pleasure!

Sail Inn is an excellent small B and B in an absolutely perfect location near the Tryon Palace entrance and within easy walking distance of the historic downtown in New Bern and excellent restaurants. Our room was spacious, tastefully decorated and very comfortable, with a king-size bed and love seat sofa. Mike and Karen are gracious hosts and have provided for every possible need their guests may have. Highly recommend.

We drove all day and arrived past 6 p.m., but had no problems checking in that late. Mike & Karen were very helpful, recommending places to visit in town. We parked our car and walked to most of our destinations while visiting. Loved eating breakfast out on the front porch. Breakfast was very delicious and varied. I would stay here again. Loved the decorations in our room! This was my first experience with a B & B and it was awesome!

My wife & I wanted a place within walking distance of all the New Bern historic attractions. Mike & Karen were very helpful and accommodating. They even assisted in getting breakfast for my wife's special dietary needs. Great hosts! The location is perfect for walking downtown to all the shops and restaurants. The house has been remodeled very nicely and yet retains the charm of it's old historic look and feel. We will visit again! We parked our car on Friday and did not move it until Sunday afternoon when we checked out. We loved it!

My husband and I decided to get away and head for New Bern. We had not been to New Bern in over 20 years. We found Sail Inn on line and decided to stay there for our long weekend. It was a wonderful experience. Sail Inn is walking distance to restaurants, Tryon Palace, and it is in the Historic District in New Bern. The room was airy and comfortable. Mike gave us free access to Wii for our computers and Kindles. We would highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast to our friends and anyone who wants to stay in a pleasant home for a get away. Look forward to the next visit.

I loved this place. Friendly staff, and clean rooms with 21st C. comfort. I love how close it is to the shops and restaurants. The price is great. There is a nearby river that is beautiful and some public parks nearby. nice and quiet and peaceful.

We stayed at Sail Inn on a trip assisting my son to move to NC from VA. We were looking for a quiet place to spend the night after a day of traveling and moving. The Sail Inn was perfect! Lovely room in walking distance to shops and restaurants. We parked our car and took a walk around town and to the parks at the rivers. Walked to a local suggested restaurant and had a really nice meal and good evening. I would highly recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: The room we stayed in was the largest with en-suite bath. Lovely!
