Cheers for the Parsonage Inn

My husband and I really enjoyed our 2 nights at The Parsonage Inn. We stayed in room 1 and it was extremely comfortable. Giuliano was a perfect host with lots of choices for a delicious breakfast. He gave good suggestions for sight seeing. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Innkeeping as it should be.

Great B&B

4.6 on April 27, 2015

My wife and I have stayed in several B&B's and this was one of the best. Giuliano, the owner and chef, was both friendly and provided a great breakfast. My wife tries to eat gluten-free and Giuliano easlly accommodated her request with a choice of several tasty breakfast items. The room was comfortable and well appointed. Unlike the experience of another guest, our shower provided a steady stream of hot water. A pleasant sitting area with water features is at the back entrance. And popcorn, snacks, water and other beverages always are available. Free WiFi was available. The Inn is conveniently located near the Broad Street downtown area and the historic sites.

First Time B&B for Our 20th Anniversary

Giuliano's The Parsonage Inn is a great place to get away. We stayed in the Lord Granville room which exceeded our expectations. It was GORGEOUS and extremely inviting. They had the fireplace going when we arrived so the room was warm. The bed was SO comfortable and the spa tub/rain shower was wonderful. We had a few issues with getting the shower to work but Terric was right on it the next day. The Parsonage Inn was only a couple blocks from downtown and Terric was very helpful in what we should do to complete our vacation. He suggested the trolley history ride which was very interesting and he also suggested a couple of restaurants in their very small downtown. Terric also made for some great conversations. The breakfasts were delicious and there were always coffee, tea, water, and sodas available. It was such a wonderful stay, we did not want to leave two days later. We will definitely come back again.

Warm welcome, delicious food

The best thing about this B&B is the food! (The rooms are beautiful, too.) The owner is an excellent chef. This B&B should also serve dinner. Enjoyed my stay immensely.

Beautifully restored parsonage.

My husband and I spent a weekend in Edenton at the Parsonage Inn. Our room was large, beautifully decorated with a large full bathroom attached. We enjoyed complementary wine and cheese in the evening before walking a block and a half to dinner. The beautifully restored house was tastefully decorated for Christmas with fresh greens and family decorations. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts prepared by the owner and served with flair by our friendly server and housekeeper Terric. We took a recommended tour of the historic district and fell in love with the beautiful old homes and the mangrove dotted shoreline. Giuliano was a friendly gracious host. I would highly recommend staying at The Parsonage Inn.

i wanted to rate all as outstanding but...

4.0 on December 31, 2014

The website would not allow me to do so. Giuliano's inn is outstanding in every way. The hospitality touches are everywhere. Wine in evening. Coffee and tea in morning. Wonderful welcomes. We look forward to it every time we get to escape to this hidden treasure. Please someone few this website.

Comfortable & accommodating

My husband & I enjoyed the decor, comfort, service & food so much. Most of all we enjoyed the folks who run this unique and personable inn. We stayed 3 days & enjoyed that time even though it rained constantly. We will definitely return to The Parsonage if we are ever in Edenton again. Come, relax & be treated like family while enjoying gourmet breakfasts!

Kindness abounds at the Parsonage Inn

In September of 2014 I spent several nights at the Parsonage Inn. My reservation, for two nights, was extended due to an injury that I sustained prior to my trip to Edenton. I had expected the stay to be very nice from reading that I had done prior to booking my reservation. I am delighted to share with others that what I found at the Inn was much more than a stay at a lovely place in a beautiful historic town. What I found was beautiful breakfasts and treats, an eclectic library, a generous supply of films and - most important - a place where time seemed to stand still, with quiet, sweet and often hilarious conversations with Giuliano Giannone, superb chef and innkeeper, and his assistant, Terric Rountree, both of whom showed genuine concern for my comfort and for my ability to continue my drive back home to Pennsylvania. I made new friends at the Parsonage. I will return there many times in the future, and I hope that others will do so, also.

First time in a bed and breakfast

5 on November 02, 2014

My daughter and I were in Edenton for a wedding on November 1. The Parsonage is beautiful. Our room was clean, very welcoming and loved that the fireplace was on when we arrived that evening. We also enjoyed that coffee and drinks were available at any time. Sunday morning breakfast was absolutely delicious. Can't wait to return to Edenton and The Parsonage again in the near future.
