September at The Aerie in New Bern

5 on September 21, 2017

I stayed at The Aerie the first week of September while there on business. Having never been to New Bern, I was pleasantly surprised by how walkable the town was and how close The Aerie was to all the restaurants, theaters, and to-dos in town. The newer owners, Keith and Dina, were amazing. They were the perfect balance of friendly and hospitable while keenly aware of their guests who were there for more privacy. Their welcoming warmth and sense of hospitality was evident from the moment I met them. I can tell they've done a lot to improve The Aerie since taking over earlier this year. I stayed in the Kennebec Room. The king-size canopy bed was incredibly comfortable complete with pillow topper and luxurious linens. The amenities in the room were abundant including a handy bedside smart phone dock and single serve coffee maker there in the room. Dina's breakfasts were delicious and a perfect, balanced beginning to each day I was there. I highly recommend that you stay at The Aerie on your visit to New Bern. You won't be disappointed.

The Carolina Suite

The Carolina Suite shares its name historically with the colony named after its sovereign King Charles II (his Latin name ?Carolus?) but also after the Street-Ward home?s matriarch Carolina Ward. Originally the home?s dining room, this spacious, ground floor suite features a king bed and sitting area with two wing-back chairs in an alcove of bay windows overlooking a quiet street and The Aerie Guest House. Room highlights include an ornate fireplace mantle, antique 19th century armoire and a comfortable wing-back chair at the fireplace. A Whirlpool bath and shower in the bathroom?s tiled enclosure invites you to luxury and romance in this large, elegant bedchamber.

The Duck Inn Room

The Duck Inn Room, was the room of Mary Ward whose family purchased the residence from Samuel Street in 1900. Mary Ward (1891-1979) lived in the home her entire life and during her later years, she divided the house into several apartments, renting them out during World War II. In fact, the current door to the room was once a closet and now guests over six feet tall may need to ?duck? their heads to enter a room with an eleven foot ceiling! Tasteful appointments and refined decorative treatments make this quaint, warm-hued room one of our most popular. A smaller room, but delightful in every way. Private bath, of course, with a cast iron tub ideal for a long soak and a great shower in a tiled enclosure.
