We had a wonderful mid-week getaway to New Bern at the Harmony House. The location is perfect - Walk a couple of blocks to the shopping and restaurants or walk a couple of blocks in the other direction to the waterfront park. The breakfasts were excellent, and we met several wonderful folks staying there while we were there. Our room and bed were very comfortable. The new owners, Gretchen and Tracy, are slowly renovating the inn, and are very friendly and accomodating. The front porch is great for reading and relaxing and the on-site parking is great. We plan to come back when we can stay longer and explore the rest of New Bern.
