Experience comfortable elegance in the heart of the Historic District. Built circa 1850 as a four room house for Benjamin and Eliza Ellis, the inn has been in operation since 1985. Several additions were made to the house as the Ellis family grew. During the civil war, Company K of the 45th Massachusetts Volunteer Militia occupied the house. The most interesting change was made circa 1900 when the house was sawed in half, separated nine feet, and a separate entrance and stairway was installed to construct two dwellings. The inn offers seven guest rooms and three suites, all with private bathrooms. The Benjamin Ellis Suite has a living room with a queen sized pullout sofa bed and a bedroom with a queen sized canopy bed. This arrangement is ideal for families. The romantic Eliza Suite has a King sized bed and features a heart shaped Jacuzzi tub/shower, perfect for a special romantic getaway. The William and Emily Suite boasts a four poster queen sized bed and a heart shaped Jacuzzi tub/shower. We are within walking distance to major area attractions, antique and specialty shops, and restaurants. Gift certificates available.

Porch is wonderful as is the location in downtown New Bern. Only real complaint is that the air conditioning was set much too low the night we were there.
Many of our guests love the front porch with the swings and rocking chairs. It's so relaxing to just sit and read a book. We really wish the guest had talked to us about the A/C when they were here. We never have any trouble adjusting temperatures either by using the thermostat or by closing or covering the A/C registers. If you plan to visit us, please ask us about adjusting the room temperature while here when we are able to do something about it.

I didn't realize that this B&B was in the historic district of New Bern. It is a charming B&B in a charming city with lots of little shops and and river and green space nearby. The innkeepers are friendly and the breakfast was very good.

My girlfriend and I stayed here during our first romantic getaway, and we'll come back here every time. The owners were nice, the wine & cheese event in the afternoon was great, and the breakfast was worth not sleeping in. The room was beautiful, and hanging out on the porch swing made this trip just that much better.

Spring at the Harmony House was just delightful. Our room was large and comfortable and the front porch was so inviting and relaxing and we definitely took advantage of the rocking chairs, The host and hostess were kind and the breakfast was delicious. We will definitely be going back for another stay there.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We are truly blessed to have so many wonderful guests. We appreciate the guests who openly talk to us during their stay so that we can ensure that their stay is fantastic. Without such great guests, we are not sure how we could keep going. Thank you again, Ed and Sooki

Room was clean, owners were friendly and courtious. TV was a bit outdated and wireless connection was weak but we didn't come to spend the whole time in the room. It was perfectly situated to easy walking distance to all of downtown. The breakfast was out of this world delicious! Most definately will stay again.
