We are having such a great time in New Bern. The Aerie B and B is the perfect location to walk to the downtown area. The rooms have all amenities needed and Michael & Marty are fabulous hosts. The breakfast selections are wonderful!

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...
