Romantic Retreat

4.8 on June 03, 2014

Our stay the this cute little B&B was only for one night, and we could not have had a better experience anywhere else. Deb was very welcoming and her recommendations on food places in downtown New Bern were excellent. I LOVED how closed to Tryon Palace and down town The Captains stay was. I only wish we could have stayed to enjoy her breakfast, but with a family emergency we could not. Deb graciously offered us food to take on the road. I highly recommend this B&B to anyone who is looking for a nice little getaway.

This was my first time at a Bed and Breakfast, and after this experience it will be the only way I travel moving forward. The Captains Stay was great. It was the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in. The breakfast was outstanding. And the room (for a 200 year old house) was perfect.

Nice New Bern Getaway

We had a great time at The Captain's Stay! My husband wasn't crazy about the idea of sharing space with others, so I was excited to book The Crow's Nest. It is a small one-room cottage behind the main house, complete with a full bath, 2 queen beds, a microwave and a fridge. The service and food were excellent. We walked to lunch, dinner, and shops. Thanks for a great night away!

A Delightful Stay

We had a delightful stay, the accommodation was spacious and well appointed, the breakfast was made to order and abundant, and our hosts were extremely hospitable, , welcoming and accommodating. The location was ideal, we were pleased to beto walk almost everywhere we wanted to go during the weekend. One of the most relaxing weekends away we've had in a long time.

We had the master bedroom and it was large, open, airy, and very comfortable, with a very large bathroom. The hosts make you feel right at home and her breakfasts are delicious! They are very interesting people and their home is in a great location and has neat history behind it. I would recommend this BnB and would definitely stay there again!

Wonderful hosts and a great experience!

We have stayed at many B&Bs, and The Captain's Stay is the best one by far! We enjoyed our beautiful room and the entire experience, but our hosts made this a truly great experience! Debra is a superb cook and spoils her guests shamelessly. Paul is the ever gracious host who entertained us with a few stories of his many adventures. The only thing I would change is to have stayed longer! We felt like we were leaving friends! I cannot say enough about this wonderful experience.

It just couldn't be any better than this!

Not only was our cozy little cottage a perfect haven for a week, Deb prepared heavenly breakfasts every day and we enjoyed them on our deck. On our second to last day, my husband requested "crispy corned beef hash" for our last breakfast and the next thing I know she's cooking a corned beef and roasting potatoes to make it from scratch. Great stories, great new friends, and a desire to be spoiled like this every day forever!

Excellent Inn to stay at.

The Captain's Stay: Sails above the rest in everything a B&B should be!

The Captain's Stay is INCREDIBLE!! From the minute I arrived, I felt like I was right at home. Debbie and Paul are amazing people and go above and beyond to ensure your every need is met and taken care of. The place is extremely clean and within walking distance of everything in downtown New Bern. Debbie's "specialty" breakfasts are to die for and she and Paul are extremely entertaining. Their history is amazing and listening to their stories makes for a very enjoyable stay. The rich history of this 200+ year old house is captivating, right down to the "cannon ball!!" You will also get a chuckle from "Jake", the hilarious parrot. My 3 night stay here will definitely not be my last. I can't imagine staying at any other place when I revisit New Bern!! Paul and Debbie, you are awesome!!
