The Aerie Inn Bed & Breakfast in New Bern provided a wonderful experience while visiting this charming and historic town with the friendliest and nicest people one can ever meet.
It offers true hospitality and excellence in every respect. One half is the physical aspect. The inn is immaculate and the furnishings exquisite. The bedding is great. The location is right in the heart of the historic district within minutes walk to the trolley tour, Tryon Palace, and historic homes, as well as restaurants and the waterfront. It has off-street parking in the rear, but you won't have to drive while staying here.
The other half of the experience is breakfast. Unbelievably delicious and beautifully presented, breakfast consist s of a "starter" and a choice of three main dishes. The best pancakes and omelettes ever.
But other distinguishing factors contribute just as much to making this inn very special. Marty and Michael, as innkeepers and hosts, are just perfect; friendly, most accommodating and gracious without being pretentious or overbearing. It is evident that they love what they do.
And the "little things" that add a lot to your comfort and enjoyment. . . Coffee & tea available as of 6:30AM for early risers; a complimentary wine-and-cheese hour which provided stimulating conversation with other guests, and 24-hour complimentary access to a refrigerator stocked with water bottles and sodas. There is also a library of books and movies for the guests.
After being turned off by other B&B experiences, the Aerie Inn was a wonderful surprise and a sheer delight!
