“Very charming!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

One of the best B&B's I have been to. The owners were so charming and very helpful even getting us dinner reservations at a local restaurant. Rooms are so beautiful and cozy.... I didn't want to get out of bed! Breakfast was delicious and so beautifully done! I absolutely recommend this place.

Room Tip: We had the Nantucket room which was gorgeous!

If 5 stars is considered the best ranking, the Aerie B&B deserves 10! It is one of the most beautifully appointed B&Bs in which my husband and I have ever stayed. The rooms are gorgeous! The very friendly owners offer wine and cheese at 5:30 each day and then deliver an absolutely magnificent breakfast (with three different choices each morning) in a lovely dining room. We can't say enough good things!

Gorgeous, friendly, GREAT location. Hosts go above and beyond to please. Breakfast is not to be missed! Rooms are so nicely done, what a collection Marty has there. You can tell this hotel is a labor of love. Can't wait to come back!

I had a wonderful time with my husband at this B&B. The owners were friendly and accommodating. The location is perfect for going out to explore new bern. The quality was top notch, the place was beautiful and the breakfast portions were incredible. If you stay, get the french toast!! I love this place. It elegant, luxurious and cozy all at the same time.

We stayed two nights at the Aerie in August and had a wonderful time. Our hosts where welcoming and very gracious. I have never seen such a beautifully decorated B&B before. With all the themed rooms, it was hard to pick one! Very comfortable and relaxing. It's very close (walking distance) to all the attractions and restaurants in the area. We bought the Romantic Package and had an enjoyable carriage ride to our romantic dinner for two. And what can I say about the breakfast...amazing and delicious!

Room Tip: We stayed across the street at their second B&B. If you want to stay close to the action, pick a...

Trip advisor reviews led us to another great place to stay. My husband and I traveled with another couple to New Bern and this B&B was amazing. The hosts were very friendly, the breakfast great and the place located central within walking distance to everything we wanted to see. We will be back.

Cannot say enough about this wonderful B&B that is clearly dedication at it's finest. Quality, value and commitment. Hospitality and the finest breakfasts far exceeded any other B&B's we have stayed in to date. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Basin room was a smaller room but oh so comfortable. Very pretty.
