Absolutely Adorable

5 on June 05, 2015

I loved this place so much! The owners are so nice and helpful and the house is just so pretty. I love the decor and treasures the owners have gathered for it. The breakfast was great. The location is UNBEATABLE. I highly recommend this B&B!


Comfort, Care & Character

5 on April 27, 2015

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!!

Wonderful First Time at a B & B

5 on April 05, 2015

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


Fantastic in every way

5 on April 02, 2015

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.

Charming room in a great location

4.4 on October 11, 2014

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.
