We visited the Washington NC area on a house-hunting trip. We chose to stay at the Moss House B&B for 2 days, with a possible third day extension. From the moment we arrived until our departure, we felt welcomed, well-fed, and relaxed. Beckie and Scott are gracious hosts, and clearly love their role as innkeepers. Their attention to detail and their flexibility to schedule changes are a real plus to the traveller. When inclement weather moved in on the third day, preventing us from venturing out for dinner, they made sure we had nice sandwiches and spirits. We look forward to our next visit to the Moss House.

We stayed at the Moss House when my sisters and I got togethers. Beckie and Scott helped to make this a special weekend. They accomodated special food needs, but most important they were warm and made us feel at home. The house is beautiful and much has been done to pay attention to details for guests' comfort and accomodation.

We had a wonderful stay at Moss House. The location was excellent for downtown, waterfront, and historic area walks. The house was interesting, the host gracious, and the food excellent.

We had only an overnight stay in Washington, NC, and the Moss House was recommended. We did not realize we were staying in such a marvelous place. The house is architecturally beautiful and is, most definitely, not a period piece. The decorating is respectful of the considerable history while being entirely modern. The colors are beautiful and the whole place is so bright, open, and beautiful, you can't help but relax. The bathrooms are fully updated, the wifi is fast. Scott and Beckie are the most warm, welcoming hosts, completely attuned to their guests (with as much or little conversation as you want). Our fellow guest was a European businessman who stays there for two weeks at a time and commutes 20 miles away for his work in the region. After our one night, we completely understood his choice. Indeed, we would return to Washington just to stay there again and tour the area. We were just passing through and realized this is a place to treasure and enjoy. PBK from Chicago

We had a wonderful weekend at the Moss house with Scott, Beckie and Miss Bella. The house is so charming, clean and so inviting. The food was delicious and the charm of the house was great. We will be back.

Hubs and I went back to The Moss House recently. My review, nor the stars have changed, but sometimes when I am looking through reviews of other places, I like to read the most recent in case things have changed a bit. Well, nothing has changed, except maybe it is better, although I am unsure how that is possible. Becky is truly one of the most gracious hostesses ever! Each room is just as welcoming and warm for your arrival. Your name awaits you on the door, and a piece of chocolate is calling your name from the nightstand beside the bed. Water, and other beverages are in the fridge in the foyer/hallway upstairs outside of the rooms, with any extra amenities you may want to use, such as when you forget your toothpaste, or if you want to use the iron, etc. We went in December so the house was so eloquently decorated for Christmas. Becky always accommodates any special needs or requests for breakfast, such as nut allergies and hubs and I being vegetarian since the last time I frequented the Moss House. Becky is also always equipped with local restaurant recommendations, as well as fun things to do in the area. A little extra thing that I love, The Moss House has it's own little soap in the bathroom. They leave you a little bag to take the soap that remains home with you, so (1), you are not wasting soap by leaving it and it getting thrown away, and (2) You can enjoy the herbal soap at home, because it truly smells amazing! We've now stayed in all of the rooms available and I truly love each room. I wouldn't hesitate to stay in any of them as they are all wonderfully accommodating and cozy!

What a fabulous place to stay! Convenient to downtown which includes the waterfront, shopping and dining. Beckie and Scott are true southern hospitality geniuses as they think of absolutely everything and have it conveniently located near your room on the off chance you need it. They provided snacks, a small fridge filled with water and sodas if you required one or all. Beckie’s delicious breakfast was to die for! We highly recommend staying at the Moss House if you are ever close to Washington, NC. We will be back for sure!

We were in March 2013 at the Moss House for almost 3 weeks and it was wonderful. Already the warm welcome by our name with chalk on the small table at the entrance, let us imagine how happy one is seen here as a guest. For Beckie it is not "just a job". She does everything very carefully, professionally and with class. This begins with the receipt and shows up every day with the varied and very special (for us Germans) an delissious breakfast, room design, the little touches and beautiful souvenirs. Scott makes sure that everything is running, even if Beckie times prevented. For us German it's probably especially nice to stay in such a lovely decorated Confederate House. Because sometimes you forget your own job and feels the loving dealings almost like home. Thank you and hope to see you soon. Wir waren im März 2013 im Moss House für knappe 3 Wochen und es war ganz wunderbar. Bereits das herzliche Welcome per Kreide mit unserem Namen an der kleinen Tafel vor dem Eingang, ließ uns erahnen, wie gern man als Gast hier gesehen ist. Für Beckie ist es nicht einfach nur ein Job. Sie macht alles ganz liebevoll, professionell und mit Klasse. Das beginnt schon mit dem Empfang und zeigt sich täglich mit dem abwechslungsreichen und ganz speziellen Frühstück, der Zimmergestaltung, den kleinen Aufmerksamkeiten und schönen Souvenirs. Scott sorgt dafür, dass alles läuft, selbst wenn Beckie mal verhindert ist. Für uns Deutsche ist es vermutlich besonders schön, in einem so liebevoll eingerichteten Südstaatenhaus zu verweilen. Da vergisst man auch mal den eigenen Job und fühlt sich durch den liebevollen Umgang fast wie zu Hause. Vielen Dank und hoffentlich bis bald.
