Historic Charm

5 on February 09, 2015

My wife and I stayed at the Meadows Inn for our 38th anniversary. We could not have picked a better place. The Meadows Inn is very welcoming and the room was very comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was wonderful all three days. The location is great for walking to the shops and restaurant's in old town New Bern. We really enjoyed getting to know Betty and John during our stay and discussing the history of the area. They were great host and we thank them for allowing us to share in their hospitality.

An Outstanding Weekend

5 on November 10, 2014

We shared Granny's Attic with another couple and had the entire 3rd floor to ourselves. The rooms were large and the bed very comfortable. The shared bathroom was spacious with lots of hot water. Another bathroom is available on the first floor as well. This B&B is located in the historic district, walking distance to the water, Persimmon's restaurant, Galley store, any pretty much any location anywhere downtown. You can see the water from the 3rd floor or by walking straight out onto the sidewalk. The breakfasts were delicious with an assortment of muffins, meats, eggs and fruit. Our hosts were GREAT people, easy to chat with. We utilized the sitting rooms for football and wine. We were very comfortable. Thank you so very much! We absolutely enjoyed the B&B as well as the town of New Bern.

Wonderful place run by wonderful people

We're a German couple couple who were on a road trip with spontaneous travel destinations when we came across the town of New Bern in our travel guide. They recommended the Meadows Inn in the book, we checked the website and their availability and were able to reserve the Josephine room for the one night we wanted to stay. The house is really beautiful and the room breathtaking! I have to say that although it already looks nice on the photographs, they don't do it justice. It's very cosy and just about the perfect location to stay as a couple. Moreover, Betty and John were absolutely wonderful hosts. Since we were not fully determined as of where to go next, they helped us with tons of information, maps and other good advice. Sincerely highly recommended!

Fabulous hosts and excellent stay!

My husband and I were greeted by the host. She made sure to give us the best recommendations for places to dine and entertainment. We never would have found the fabulous things to do in New Bern without her advice. Very comfortable bed, delicious food and would highly recommend this Inn to all looking to visit New Bern. Cons: The rooms were air conditioned, but the main house seemed to be on a higher temp, a little too warm out of the room.

Great weekend getta away!!

My partner and I really enjoyed our stay, this was our second visit and the innkeeper was very helpful and warm. The room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable, not hard like some we've experience, really had a great stay in a beautiful town, was in walking distance of several great restaurants, and historic sites....

Fantastic Breakfast!

Private and quiet. Within walking distance of Downtown New Bern and the water! Gourmet breakfast, very sweet people. Will stay there again!

Family Reunion

4.4 on July 26, 2014

I grew up in NC and returned home to attend a family reunion. My siblings and I were looking for a place where we could spend quality time with each and and our families and have the closeness to enjoy each other without the restrictions found in a hotel setting. We rented the entire house and although John and Betty were gracious, something tells me that they when above and beyond the norm. Meadows Inn provided us with that and more. The house was immaculately clean and the rooms were in order and suited our purpose. Breakfast was great but I think we were all looking for the down home south breakfast that we were accustom to when going home to NC. Not a fault of John and Betty, as Betty did ask our preference before we arrived but assumption got in my way. If you are looking for a family gathering, this is the best place to achieve your desires.

Business Travel

5 on June 30, 2014

I stayed at this B&B for the 1st time on Thursday, June 26, 2014 while on business travels. John & Betty are amazing & provide great hospitality! The location is convenient to the historic downtown area. You are in very close walking distance (1 - 2 blocks) from a variety of restaurants, shops, & entertainment options! Also, you are the same distance from the water! A great escape even for the business traveler. I would strongly encourage anyone to stay here & enjoy rediscovering New Bern & what this beautiful B&B has to offer!

Delightful find

4.6 on June 25, 2014

On a last-minute whim decided to visit New Bern, NC over a weekend. Were very fortunate to find availability at the Meadows Inn B&B. Convenient to downtown historic district and restaurants. John and Betty were most accommodating! The Inn is beautiful, comfortable, quiet (even when full), and the breakfasts were delicious! We will certainly book with them on our next visit!
