An exceptional B&B can be found situated against the backdrop of an idyllic harbor town where people still wave from their porches. Innately hospitable, Paul and Deb are what make this B & B stand out from the rest. They are down to earth and a pleasure to talk to- seasoned travelers, they have much to share without being intrusive. My husband and I really enjoyed our conversations with both of our hosts and would have been just as happy to spend our time getting to know them as we did exploring the town. Accommodations’ are tasteful, warm and inviting. We stayed in the Master Suite with the step down en-suite bathtub furnished with a claw foot tub. If you forgot something at home, do not worry, they have thought of everything! In the spacious bathroom, one can find all the accoutrements needed to help make your visit as stress and worry free as possible- from toothpaste, face wipes, and bath salts, to tea and coffee-you know you will be cared for. Please be sure to schedule time into your visit to take advantage of Paul’s tugboat cruise. The cruise was the highlight of our trip. Paul put us right at ease and really has a keen eye for interesting tidbits of history. He has a way of making you feel like long lost friends. Breakfast is phenomenal! Deb has a background in cooking and catering and it shows. She offers continental and/or made to order breakfast replete with a bowl of fresh in-season fruit. I highly recommend her veggie omelet. Her produce is fresh and the veggies are cooked just right. She even went out of her way to buy turkey bacon for us. The town has a lot to offer within walking distance. We did not use our car the whole two days we were there. Ask Paul or Deb about the many restaurants in town, I would take their advice-we were happy we did. This is by far one of our most memorable Anniversaries. Paul even matched our umbrella to our outfits!! Thanks to Paul and Deb!!

This was our first time at a B & B and we could not have been more pleased! Deb and Paul made us feel at home immediately. The home and accommodations were very comfortable. The room was quaint and did not feel commercial. Deb's made to order breakfasts were out of this world. We enjoyed visiting with Deb and Paul. Our tour of New Bern was great, but we felt that our time at The Captain's Stay was one of the best highlights of our trip. Billy and Myra - Hillsborough, NC

I stay at The Captain's Stay for four nights while looking for a house to buy. I can only say fabulous things about the place. The owners are kind and helpful, sincere in their generosity and very interesting. My room was almost too nice to leave and the bed was so comfortable that I slept from ten pm to 11 am todays in a row. This must sound like I was being paid to write my review (which I was not) I just wanted the owners of The Captain's Stay to get a little recognition for all their hard work and great addition to the town of New Bern. You will not be disappointed.

My sister and I spent 3 nights in the Crow's Nest behind the main house and really enjoyed our stay. The room was comfortable, charming, and private. Deb was terrific and not only made breakfast to order, but gave us a tour of all of the lovely rooms. The Captain's Stay is an ideal location for walking around historic New Bern.

This was my very first experience at a B&B and I was very impressed! Deb and her husband were very welcoming along with the people of New Bern! Me and a group of friends stayed in the Crows Nest which is in the back of the property and a lot more private. It was so cute and just perfect. There was a TV and DVD player, mini fridge, microwave, coffee machine, and filled with little snacks to munch on. It was very clean and well kept. As soon as we arrived Deb greeted us with open arms and gave us the grand tour of the beautiful 200 year old home. In the main house there was a massive DVD collections, pool table, social area, dining area and the kitchen! She served breakfast in the mornings until 10am, and I just wanted to move in at that point! She knew all the local hang out spots and the recommendations were spot on for food. The sheets and towels were changed out in the morning for us which was very nice. The beds were so comfortable and I felt like I was on cloud nine. There was adequate lighting, drawer and closet space for clothes. The bathroom was equipped with multiple toiletries just in case there was something you may have forgotten at home, she had. All in all I cannot praise this place enough, it was the best time! I will be coming back if I am ever in New Bern.
