Stopped in New Bern to visit a former neighbor and attend her husband's 80th birthday parties. The Aerie B&B was a perfect place to be. It is right downtown and so close to everything New Bern has to offer. A warm spring weekend made it more enjoyable and the hosts were very welcoming. You can see the pride they put...

With-in walking distance to all the historic sites of this former capital of North Carolina with a host and hostess that makes you feel right at home. We decided with the room away from the main house for added privacy and living room to entertain. With a private kitchen, we felt right at home. The bed was soft and welcoming...

The Aerie House is beautiful, comfortable, and owned by the nicest couple you would ever want to meet. That is without even talking about the great breakfast served in elegant style each morning. If you get there be sure to take a tour in the Model A, it is well worth the effort.

When my husband and I decided to spend a night in New Bern, I knew I wanted to stay within easy walking distance of the historic downtown. I researched lodging locations, and The Aerie B&B seemed to be the best located lodging for walking access to museums and downtown. But I had given up staying at B&Bs after too many...

We so enjoyed this trip. It was far more than we thought. Michael and Marty made us so comfortable. We are going to tell all our friends about this jewel of a place. The history of New Bern was a great touch. The tour was great.

This is only our 2nd time to the Aerie, but it is our favorite B&B in New Bern. We spent New Years' Eve in their 'Hidden Room'. I was warmly greeted by Martie and led to a room with it's own private entrance (allowing totaI privacy) and was immediately enchanted by the charming and romantic décor. As I waited for...

My husband and I recently spent four days in his hometown of New Bern visiting family. We usually stay at hotels but after reading the excellent reviews decided to try the Aerie midweek for our last two nights. We can understand the rave reviews. We stayed in the spacious Tuscarora room, which had an indulgently comfortable bed, a great shower/bath...

We stayed here a weekend ago for a weekend away for Mom and Dad and we were planning an event in New Bern for our Alfa car club.

My husband & I went as an anniversary/Christmas present for each other for a couple of nights. The B&B was beautiful! We booked the Duck room, however, they gave us a free upgrade upon arrival to the Tuscarora. This room was perfect and a wonderful size! The bed was like sleeping in a cloud and the sheets were so wonderful...
