“Outstanding place to stay in New Bern”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

We travel with 3 other couples every year and always stay in B & B's if possible. This year we chose New Bern, NC and Meadows Inn. John & Betty are excellent hosts, very friendly and attentive to our every need and want. The rooms were very comfortable, spacious and clean. Our breakfasts were very good. The inn is within walking distance to the downtown business and tourist area. We left our van in their parking lot and walked almost everywhere we wanted to go.

We were in New Bern trying to see if this was our place to retire. John and Betty were perfect hosts, going from being our inn keepers to advisers. First the stay was very comfortable, extremely clean and period perfect. Breakfast was great and fun. When we first arrived Betty and John gave us space but as we became better acquainted they became invited to have discussions about their experiences moving from Indiana to New Bern. New Bern is a really great town with a lot to see. Downtown is a treasure with beautiful homes gardens, and waterfront. The Meadows fits perfectly in this environment. We stayed in the oriental room and it was great. Lots of space and light. There was individual controls for heat and AC and the bathroom was great especially given the age of the home. The common areas included the dining room and the library and both were spacious and well appointed. My wife and I will love to go back and put New Bern on our possible move locations with much help from Betty and John.

We were in town for the NC Main Street convention and found this B&B to be lovely. Property is very well cared for and maintained. John and Betty were attentive and helpful in so many ways - great advice on things to do with our free time. Our stay was relaxing and informative. We couldn't have asked for a better mini-vacation. We parked our car and walked (strolled really) everywhere until we got back in the car to return home.

Gene & Peggy R,

My stay was very pleasant at the Meadows Inn. John and Betty were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and the atmosphere homey. Just 1-2 blocks from the river, river walk and downtown historical district made for easy walks and sightseeing. Thanks to George, the Delta agent, and hotels.com for helping me locate this place. I'd definitely come back to stay.

My husband and I are currently from New Bern and just wanted a little staycation weekend so we thought lets stay at a B&B in downtown. I'm so glad we chose Meadows Inn. It is such a cute house with amazing inn keepers. Betty and John are such sweet and caring people. They make you feel at home and have great insight in what is available to do in New Bern. The Inn is in downtown New Bern so you can just walk to all the restaurants and shops and then there is of course the waterfront walkway right there too. All around great location. Each room has it's own A/C and heating unit. Which also has a "constant fan" feature which I LOVE. It helps drown out any excess noise (not that I heard any when it wasn't running). We stayed in the Monet room and the bed was very comfortable and we both slept very well. Each morning Betty cooked the most amazing breakfast. Delicious fresh fruit, some sort of pastry and the two mornings we were there, breakfast burrito and then pumpkin pancakes. Very relaxing weekend.

My husband and I took a little after-Christmas trip first visiting Asheville and then New Bern. (I am a Nicholas Sparks' fan and wanted to visit his little town.)

Based on the location and their New Year's Eve special, I chose The Meadows Inn on-line and made reservations for a three-night stay. The special included afternoon appetizers/beverages, dinner reservations at the Harvey Mansion and dessert in our room.

I reserved the large, upstairs "Josephine" room, which was very attractive, spacious and comfortable. (I loved the off-white, satin trimmed "Soft and Cuddly" [brand name] ladies' robe and having a bath tub with plenty of hot water!)

The inn is located a block from the river and a block from some nice, local restaurants and shops, so we could walk everywhere!

We found the people of New Bern to be very friendly and interesting and enjoyed talking with some of the locals and hearing their stories.

The inn keepers were the best part of the inn! Betty and John are such warm, friendly people and a pleasure to spend time with!

If you enjoy fireplaces, know that although the rooms have fireplaces, they are non-functional.

My husband and I would recommend The Meadows Inn to anyone looking for a relaxing place to stay within walking distance to just about everything.

We stay at this B & B several times a year. We don't consider staying anyplace else. We love the atomosphere and the inn keepers. They are the type of people who want there guests to be happy and comfortable. Anything you want or need you just ask and they do their best to accomodate you. We have recommended this inn to many other people.
