Harmony House Inn
Ranked #3 of 10 New Bern B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 September 2017

To celebrate with my future daughter-in-law, the women from both families met in New Bern for a Special Girls Weekend. I was led to choose Harmony House after visiting several local B&Bs beforehand. The Inn keepers and their Inn were so warm and welcoming. It was the perfect gathering place! It was comfortable, very special yet felt homey; they went out of their way to accommodate our large group, breakfast each morning was fantastic, and the location was perfect. We parked our cars upon arrival and didn't need them again until we headed for home. Thank you Gretchen & Tracy for helping make our celebration so special.

We picked the Harmony House Inn out of the blue from the web. We made a good choice. Our room was impeccably clean and well-appointed. But beyond that, it was comfortable, homey, and relaxing. The towels in the bath were new and lush, and the amenities were first-rate. The breakfasts were stunningly good, with different and delicious fare every day. The parlor offers a great place to sit, read, or converse. Being an August visit, we really appreciated the cold water available at the snack stand (don't skip the chocolate chip cranberry cookies in the jar). Administrative aspects of out visit were a well-oiled machine (Swiss efficiency?) with no glitches or surprises. Tracy and Gretchen were the perfect hosts throughout our visit...interested, helpful, thoughtful, and caring. We'll be back on our next trip to New Bern.

Room Tip: All rooms looked good. We chose a ground-floor room for easy access and a corner room for lots of li...

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.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Coharie Suite - it was in the back corner of the inn and very quiet. Very comfortab...

Gretchen and Tracy are wonderful host. We booked on line and all was seamless and easy. The Inn is beautiful, and so welcoming! Porch swings, sitting rooms, fresh baked cookies, tea...ahhhh!
The bed was so comfy, great sheets. Gretchen has ice and wine glasses for us in the room when we returned from dinner. And breakfast, out of this world delicious. Close to fun attractions and restaurants for dinner. A great place to stay and enjoy.

Room Tip: WE stayed in a room toward the back of the house

My husband and I spent 3 nights in this historic inn. The breakfasts were different each day and delicious. They were also very plentiful. Our large bedroom was very comfortable with private bath and the inn is very clean.The hosts are very welcoming and helpful in recommending restaurants. There is off street parking which is important in this downtown area. There is a large front porch with rocking chairs, a great place for resting after touring the town and before heading to dinner.

Room Tip: Large front room and separate air conditioning unit which we controlled.
