My husband and I had the most relaxing weekend getaway at the Benjamin Best Country Inn. If you are planning to dine at the Chef and the Farmer in Kinston (and you will need to overnight, as they only serve dinner), then this is THE place to stay!

Step back in time and enjoy the "Southern" charm, elegance and extraordinary yummy but healthy food and historic accommodations of this National Registry Property ( circa 1845-50 ). We loved the fabulous food, the warm and informative hosts... Ossie and Mary Betty Kearney, the on site country store where I purchased farm eggs, delicious gluten free muffin mix and locally...

My husband and I had a great time at this B&B. We stayed in the carriage house, which was an entirely separate small house just to ourselves. We were served sweet tea while we read our books on the porch after we arrived and were offered a golf cart to explore the farm. We were given excellent recommendations for dinner...
