The owner cooks gourmet breakfasts that are phenomenal and the breakfast area is beautiful with white table cloths and fine china. The courtyard behind the Inn is refreshing with welcoming landscaping surrounding a unique trellis along with tables & chairs where... More

We stayed at Aerie B&B on Nov. 6th. The bed was very comfortable, but the room and the entire house is full of antique furniture and items that make for a cluttered feel. Breakfast is served from a menu of selections and was very good.

The rooms (we added a day to our visit and moved across the hall) are sumptuously furnished, the baths clean and elaborate, the beds large and soft, breakfasts are large and deluxe, and our hosts most welcoming. All good. Combined with the downtown, but quiet location, we could... More

We are having such a great time in New Bern. The Aerie B and B is the perfect location to walk to the downtown area. The rooms have all amenities needed and Michael & Marty are fabulous hosts. The breakfast selections are wonderful!

My favorite part was breakfast! We both chose the French Toast with bananas and caramel sauce. Delicious!! My biggest complaint was the shower.... More
