This is the second time my family and I have stayed at the Coor-Bishop Dependency in Historic New Bern. This home is lovely in every way. Very neat and clean. They provide you with everything you need for a pleasant stay. One block from the river and 4 blocks from downtown in a beautiful and quiet historic neighborhood.
Mums Fest 2015 in New Bern, NC offered an outstanding way to enjoy all that the small historical community had to offer. From its easily navigable streets, beautiful older homes, the dependency lodging option, B&Bs vs. local hotels, water front activities, assortment of artistic/quaint shops and best of all, ease of getting there (via car or plane).
We only had 2 days to stay while visiting with family on a tree lined street a block away from the town proper and 4 houses from one of the rivers, but this short weekend trip combined with staying in the Coor-Bishop Dependency promised to be one which we repeat over and over.
For a couple or a small group not wanting to stay in a local hotel, but still wanting to be a 2 minute walk to local shops, pubs and restaurants I recommend the Coor-Bishop Dependency. Great owners, great atmosphere and an overall very enjoyable location to be in. Enjoy!
