Stayed at the Aerie for the sixth time! Each time is better than before - their attention to detail is mazing! Loved the "Hidden Room" this visit and my granddaughter and I loved the time we were there. The 1929 Ford tour is a nice new addition. Next time, we'll take the pontoon tour of the riverside. Marty & Mike...

If you are going to New Bern don't even consider staying anywhere else. I would return in a heartbeat. Everything thing was outstanding, private, spotless and comforting. I was a solo traveller and felt safer than I have in any hotel.

I have been to several BnBs they were all very nice but the Aerie is by far head and shoulders above them. We arrived as strangers and left as friends. Made new friends whom I would call frequent flyers. I was impressed that most of the guests have returned so many times. The accommodations were lovely as ex pected and...

Stayed here for 2 nights and wish it was longer! Marty and Michael truly care about their business and go above and beyond to give their guests attention and care. New Bern is a fantastic little town...we were able to park our rental car at the B&B and never needed it again. Everything is within walking distance. There are some...

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.
