My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Aerie. The "happy hour" social time on the patio was a great bonus. We enjoyed our conversation with the gentleman from England who was a temporary Inn keeper while we were there. Very fun. Great location to be able to walk downtown or to the historic sites. The breakfast was...

The Aerie B&B definitely lived up to the many excellent reviews as we simply didn't want to leave. It is located perfectly in the middle of downtown New Bern, NC where we parked our SUV at the Inn on Friday night and didn't touch it again until time to leave. We walked or were escorted by Michael and his awesome...

New Bern is a very pretty small town and the Aerie fits well into its location and is within minutes walk of everything that would attract you to the town. The inn keepers were abroad when we stayed but things were being taken care of by charming 'surrogate' inn keepers who were very helpful. We stayed in the Carolina Suite...

The house is heavy on the Victorian frou-frou (silk flowers, etc.) and not in the best of shape. It looked worn and in need of refreshing. The door to our room and the one next door creaked terribly. The tub, which included a shower, was very large/high and very close to the toilet making it a little difficult to climb...

This is our favorite B&B anywhere. We love the comfort and hospitality of the Aerie when we visit our family in New Bern. Close to everything and full of every amenity, from breakfast to happy hour, you'll have a difficult time leaving!

If you want an intimate wedding ceremony with a small reception to follow this is the best place to have it. From start to finish everything was beautiful with attention being paid to the tiniest of details by the owners. My husband and I elected to go outside the box a little and had our own selection of music, we...

Wonderful place to stay! The breakfast was truly amazing and so much food! We loved the table settings and "feel" of the dining room. The social hour was pleasant as well; it was fun visiting with the other guests at The Aerie. Our trip to New Bern was wonderful and The Aerie was a big part of making it so...

My husband and I stayed here while visiting my brother in New Bern. It was just perfect. It wasn't far from my brother and sister-in-law, which was so convenient for going back and forth. The grounds are beautiful. We visited in March, from Pennsylvania, and the warmer weather and blooming flowers were so welcome. We stayed in the Caleb Bradham...

From the warm welcome by Liz, once a farrier of fabulous horses, the culinary expertise of hostess/owner Marty evidenced in fabulous breakfasts served in an opulent dining room, the quiet companionship of Banjo, the dog following her owner about the gorgeously decorated rooms, to the informative conversations of owner Michael, our stay at the Aerie was perfect.

My husband and I recently stayed at The Aerie for several nights over our 22nd anniversary. We loved our room (the Bradham suite) and had a wonderful time. Marty and Michael were wonderful hosts, friendly and helpful. Gorgeous and filling breakfasts often kept us sated till lunch. Perfect getaway for us; thank you! We'll definitely return.
