We were blown away by the stunning decor in Hidden Room. Romantic feel. Much attention to detail. Keureg, ceramic mugs, bottled water, wine and water goblets, even a wine bottle opener in room. Modern amenities also, Wi-Fi, mini-fridge stocked with water and soda in closet and TV with DVD player tucked in a wardrobe. Breakfast experience was decadent. Delicious food...

After looking over several B&B’s for a special getaway, we found out quickly that the cream does indeed rise to the top by choosing the Aerie Inn. Simply, it exceeded our expectations!

We returned to New Bern several years after stumbling upon it on our way to the Outer Banks. We decided to enhance our stay in New Bern by staying in a B&B instead of a chain hotel. We are so glad we did. The Aerie is within walking distance of all of the sites in New Bern. The town is...

Marty and Mike are wonderful hosts and make the difference for me on my frequent business trips to New Bern. What a difference to the usual hotel boxes in New Bern! Always again at The Aerie! Right down town, all the fine restaurants within walking distance. And what a breakfast! Thank you to Marty and Mike!
