We were looking for a short getaway, and how lucky that we selected this B&B in New Bern. The town is lovely, and we had a fabulous time in spite of the cold rainy weekend. The Aerie is a beautiful property, gorgeously decorated, immaculate, and welcoming. Our hosts Marty and Michael are delightful, and the ride in the Model A...

We had a wonderful time at the Aerie. Mike and Marty are terrific hosts and run a top notch B&B. The Breakfasts are to die for! It's a perfect location in town where you can walk to everything. Just park you car and not worry about driving.

Very well appointed suite. Well trained and courteous staff. Marty and Michael were a pleasure to meet, and both of them are very knowledgeable about New Bern's history. Michael did an outstanding job for us with the Model A Ford tour of the city. Hearty breakfast; well may be too much of good food. We skipped lunch on both days...

I love New Bern, and it's a lovely town to visit, but the real reason we keep coming back to New Bern is to stay at The Aerie. I have been several times and am delighted every time we stay here. On this visit, I brought along my teenage daughter and stayed in the Guest House and Conference Center just...

Our stay at the Aerie was far beyond what we expected. We felt as though we were very welcomed guests in Marty and Michaels home. Everything from their hospitality, the cleanliness of room and spectacular breakfast; couldn't be better. We look forward to returning to New Bern and staying at the Aerie again. Very inviting, warm and truly lovely. Carol...

Due to 30 years of vacationing and required travel, my wife and I have stayed in too many hotels and rental units to count but we have never stayed in a B&B. Last week was our very first time at a Bed and Breakfast and it will not be our last. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and she had...

We cannot say enough about The Aerie B&B and the owners, Marty and Michael Gunhaus. Our room was beautiful. The wine and cheese served in the afternoon was a great time to get to know Marty and Michael and hear about all that New Bern has to offer. Breakfast was both beautiful and delicious.
