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

My wife and I stayed for five nights, and were extremely pleased. Quiet, comfortable rooms, delicious breakfast every morning. New Bern is a great pivot point to explore the area, and this was the perfect home base to return to in the evenings.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the larger rooms, but they all looked comfortable and inviting.

My husband and I spent one night here and had a wonderful time. Tracy and Gretchen are very accommodating and friendly, and they provide a wonderful home away from home. Breakfast was delicious and a nice tribute to them having spent much of their years in Europe. The property is very clean and well decorated and is in a perfect location for exploring the town of New Bern.

Stayed at Harmony House late August with my wife. We loved every aspect of this lovely property, from our gracious hosts, to the comfortable surroundings, and fantastic breakfast! And, what a great location, totally convenient to ALL of Bern, on foot! We stayed in Eno Suite, super comfy and quiet. I would highly recommend this property any time New Bern NC is in your plans.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Harmony House for a much needed get away. Our only regret is that we weren't there for a longer stay. Gretchen and Tracy have gone out of their way to create an amazing retreat- top notch amenities and a fantastic breakfast. We will definitely be back for a longer stay to enjoy all of that downtown New Bern has to offer.

Let me just say first off. This town is wonderful with lots of wonderful places to see and things to do. The town has a lot of history and charming character, but if you are looking for somewhere welcoming to stay then you do not want to stay here. I usually don't write reviews but the Inn Keepers of this Inn was so rude to us. We decided to stay for the weekend and booked our room. We arrived to a front door that was locked and it was still daylight outside. We rang the doorbell and Gretchen answered the door and gave us a blank unwelcome stare, upon finally getting into the house she quickly asked for the rest of the payment. We were not even showed the house or our room yet. After clarifying the payment, we finally were shown to our room. If anyone has stayed at a B&B most of them allow you to go into the kitchen, use towels that are stored for guests, usually there is cheese and wine, some even have mini frig or coffee makers in your room. NO NO none of this is at this B&B. WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT GET AN EXTRA TOWEL WITHOUT ASKING. We got the third degree because we got extra towels out of the hallway storage cupboard. We went to ask about a different room because the bed in Nantahala Room 4 was really firm for our liking . When we spoke to Tracey and Gretchen about possibly changing our room (knowing there could be a charge that we would have paid), we were fussed at like little children about why we got two additional towels from a linen cupboard in the hall. HOW DID THEY KNOW WE GOT TOWELS? THEY CAME IN OUR ROOM WHILE WE WERE GONE!! They did not ask did we want our room cleaned, nor did they have a do not disturb. This is not offered. This was our experience here. For anyone that decides to stay here, I wish you the best and Hopefully these Inn keepers will learn Southern Hospitality.

Reviews offering constructive comments are helpful for us to continue improving our bed & breakfast. It is unfortunate this guest did not find the hospitality at the Harmony House Inn to her liking. Our goal is to create a comfortable environment that blends a bit of history with modern amenities so guests will feel at home; services ensure the Inn is secure, clean and accommodating. At the same time the Inn is our home and we hope guests will be respectful and treat it accordingly.
