Lovely stay. Good room, food and experience. Recommended.

Gorgeous home, Wonderful host, great breakfasts, super large rooms, pet friendly, pretty neighborhood right off 95. At a similar price, why stay at a chain?

We decided to stay at a B&B instead of one of the I-95 hotels because we were towing a boat and felt it would be more secure. Kelly went out of her way to make sure we had a parking spot my husband felt comfortable with. We decided to nosh on our cheese sticks and crackers for dinner, when Kelly appeared with a lovely hunk of brie cheese covered in local honey and ground nuts. Just what the doctor ordered!

Simply Divine offers large, comfortable rooms and our breakfast was delicious. The "unusual" part is that we were the only ones staying at the Inn on this particular night and no one was there to greet us or open the door. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Inn keeper, was unavailable to greet us, and left the key in the mailbox. Although they had emailed and attempted to call (they only had our landline number), when we arrived we were a little confused as to how to gain entrance. It all worked out after we contacted the owner, and we had a comfortable overnight stay. Kelli had actually left cookies and lemon water for us on the entrance table. Dunn has very limited dining options, however, Kelli, said she would do dinner if contacted in advance. I would definitely do that if our travels took us to this area again.

Our Inn Hostess, Kelly, was everything one hopes for in an Innkeeper, and the room and grounds likewise. But most of all, Kelly is as gracious as she is interesting. We'd brought two dogs, and Kelly surprised us one morning after breakfast with two chihuahuas-dachshund puppies she'd rescued after the hurricane. Can't beat that. Oh, and the breakfasts were excellent. Especially appreciated that she quickly whipped up a vegetarian omelette for me. Thanks, Kelly

We spent three nights during family weekend at Campbell University. The room was beautiful, comfortable and very relaxing. Kelly is an amazing and beautiful woman who made us feel welcome immediately. Her breakfasts were delicious and the atmosphere in the house was wonderful. We can't wait to stay there again.

Kelly was exceptional! We enjoyed our overnight stay and our wonderful breakfast in the morning. So very kind in many ways. Will definitely be back if in the area.

Easy access from I95, charming house with comfortable bed in Topaz room. Kelli recommended Heath's Steakhouse nearby that was quite good. Good breakfast of quiche and melon.
5 on July 13, 2016
I did not know what to expect when I booked rooms at this B&B so far from home, other than the recommendation of my friend that she "really loved staying there". Well, that makes two of us now! The rooms were wonderfully clean and bright, with high ceilings and modern bathrooms despite the obvious age of the house. Every detail of this house is amazing, with gorgeous woodwork, amazing food produced by a friendly, warm staff and simple courtesies that made my arrival and departure extremely easy. I would stay here again in a heartbeat, and I would recommend this B&B to anyone I know. Special shout out to Kelly, whose friendliness and wonderful food made my trip really special. Thank you!

Everything was great save the piddling soap provided in the bathroom. Putting in a soap dispenser would probably save you money and provide better service. The hosts are called away but really covered their bases with staff and s great breakfast.
3.8 on April 01, 2016
We have stayed a few times and each time the service of the staff has been fabulous! They were helpful, friendly, and extremely accommodating! The fresh breakfast each morning was on point! Very kind of owners to give a little discount for returning guest.... We came in very late/early in the morning and we were charged a night (we understand it's a business) but for a returning guest, wish they would have let that one go. But each time we have stayed the staff member in house went above and beyond with amazing customer service!!
3.8 on March 24, 2016
We enjoyed our stay at Simply Divine. Unfortunately, because of North Carolina's anti-gay government we will not be spending any more money in that state.
4.8 on March 23, 2016
This was our first stay at a B&B . We stayed on our way to Fla. it is easy to find right off 95. Very clean and the hosts were very nice.
4.4 on March 08, 2016
Very nice stay for 2 nights. Facilities were very well kept and the hosts were very friendly and helpful.
5 on March 03, 2016
A wonderful place to stay. We had a fantastic dinner and breakfast, a lovely room and a great rest ...just what we needed. Great people, thanks for providing such a lovely home for weary travellers! Linda & Martin

My husband and I had a very relaxing stay on Simply Divine. Carmen is a delightful hostess, very caring and attentive. The 1906 is very well appointed, 6,000 sq feet of antiques and art tastefully arranged and displayed. Enjoy!!
5 on January 26, 2016
Carmen is the consummate hostess, as she made every effort to make us feel welcomed in their magnificent 1906 home. You will feel well taken care of staying at Simply Divine.

when my mother became ill Carmen went above snd beyond for us. thank you for another lovely stay and for your extra special attention.

We had the most wonderful time at SD. Extended family stayed as well. We enjoyed the dinner special as well as a wedding rehearsal dinner that was to die for. 3 different kinds of lasagna, salad, drinks, bruschetta and we were able to bring in our own alcohol and cake. Carmen & Rob are so sweet and they take care of your every need. Ulmar is wonderful. He does it all from cleaning to serving. The rooms are all so nicely decorated, very lovely. It was decorated for Christmas which we all loved. We will definitely stay at SD again if in the area. The value is by far, outstanding.
5 on December 10, 2015
We had a wonderful stay at Simply Divine. I highly recommend with zero hesitation. I look forward to staying there in the future.
5 on November 04, 2015
As "Snowbirds" , we stay here whenever we are traveling to and from Florida. Rob and Carmen are excellent hosts. The house is stunning, the breakfasts are tasty and the rooms are very large and comfortable. We always book the Ruby Room and it almost feels like visiting family each time we stay there. So much nicer than staying in a chain hotel and the house itself is a destination.
4.8 on November 01, 2015
My wife and I just wanted to get away for the weekend. We found Simply Devine's website through a search, and loved the photos of the place. We booked our stay, and the staff quickly responded to our questions. We throughly enjoyed our experience, the room was beautiful, clean, and very comfortable. The staff and their hospitality was great. We definitely will be returning.
4.4 on October 23, 2015
We stayed one night in celebration of our anniversary. We stayed in the Jade Room which was lovely and spacious. The home itself is a beautiful 109 home that is well maintained. The breakfast was delicious and the owners are very nice. My only complaint is that they need to hang a non-transparent curtain or shade in the bathroom of that room as the window faces houses directly across the street. We will definitely stay there again!
3.6 on September 09, 2015
Great half way stop on our Florida to Pennsylvania drive. Carmen is a sweet person and Omar was a delight to talk to, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfasts were good. Had dinner there on the way north, salmon was very good.

I wrote a longer review on yelp. :-)

Awesome location for a weekend getaway, Very relaxing and clean rooms. Beautiful house with well updated facilities. Very relaxing place to unwind on the days leading up to and after my wedding
4.8 on April 20, 2015
Place is beautiful and homey. bed just perfect updated bath with superb dual head shower. Personnel exceedingly helpful and accommodating. This is our first visit and as we drive to florida and back to Syracuse each winter, it will be our joy to spend a minimum of two nights each year. Breakfast was simple and perfectly prepared. owners were absent due to a health problem with a senior family member. we expect that the owners talent in the kitchen will outshine their friend that stepped in on short notice for this visit.
Thank you for staying with us and your kind words. We have many like you who we two times per year. We enjoy catching up with folks as they make their way north and south.
5 on April 15, 2015
The owners were very friendly. The breakfast was great!
Thank you for staying with us. We hope you return if your travels ever bring you this way again.
4.6 on April 15, 2015
This is a convenient stop on our way from Maryland to South Carolina. Easy to get to and park. Rooms are large and nicely decorated. They will serve dinner with wine and breakfast. Dinner is nice without having to go out after traveling all day. The owners are very nice and friendly. Prices are very reasonable compared to B&B's in our area.
Thank you for staying with us and your kind review. We started serving dinner at the request of our guests many of whom are in the middle of along drive. We hope to see you again soon.
4.8 on March 28, 2015
Simply Divine is a real gem. We loved our room, the house, and our hosts! Luxury at a reasonable price.
Thank you for your kind words. We appreciate you staying with us and it was a pleasure to meet your family.
4.4 on March 23, 2015
We were just looking for a conveniently located B&B to stop at and found this very nice place located near other very pretty homes in a small NC town. The owners are so friendly and served up a breakfast that was delicious and unique.
We appreciate you staying with us and thank you for your kind words.

My wife and I were driving home to NJ from FLA so central NC seemed like a good place for an over night stay. We wouldn't usually consider a B&B for a one night stay, especially on a Monday night, but we did and I'm now so happy I stumbled upon Simply Divine. We were expected at 7PM, but ran into delays and also got lost so didn't arrive until 10PM. We were greeted very warmly and immediately offered something to eat and drink. Our room was clean, charming and extremely comfortable. This was our last night away from home after being on the road for 30 days and our bed at this B&B was the nicest and most comfortable of all the different places we stayed at. Breakfast was simple, but first class and the service was attentive. I almost wanted to extend our trip, but there's not much to do in Dunn, NC on a cold Tuesday morning in early March. Dennis M. (Jersey City, NJ)
We know what it's like to arrive late after a long drive and do our best to make your stay enjoyable.
4.4 on March 07, 2015
Stopped for the night, wonderful room, clean and comfy, definitely recommend!
Thank you for staying with us. We hope you'll be able to stay longer next time.
5 on February 20, 2015
Everyone at Simply Divine was so friendly. The bed was really comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. We had a private bath. The experience felt private for a bed and breakfast which we liked. Not much to do in Dunn but it is right off of 95 and easy to explore other parts of North Carolina. I would love to come back when it is warmer because there seems to be lots of hikes and canoeing options nearby!
Thank you for staying with us and your kind review. You're right, there are a lot of outdoor activities in the area.
4.8 on February 15, 2015
This was our second year at simply divine, that speaks for itself, will most likely return next year.
We thank you for your kind words and look forward to seeing you next year.

Rob and Carmen always make us feel at home. We love staying at Simply Divine.
And we love you staying with us! Hope to see you again soon when you're back in the area visiting your family.
3.6 on December 29, 2014
Quiet and comfortable. Would stay at this B&B again. Clean as well as charming.
Thank you for staying with us and hope to see you again soon.
4.8 on December 27, 2014
Located halfway between NY and Florida, Simply Divine is a welcome stop along the way. This B & B is in an elegant mansion,beautifully furnished and very cozy. The hosts are very friendly and make a lovely breakfast, all prepared in house. If you have a pet, then this is a major step up from having to stay at one of the crummy chains that will accept pets. We stay here every time we go North or South and have always been pleased and felt welcome.
Thank you for your kind review. Well behaved pets are always welcome. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
5 on October 10, 2014
Looking for a place to stay over night, this place exceeded our expectations. Thanks.
Great! We hope you keep us in mind if your travels bring you this way again.
4.8 on September 23, 2014
Can't say enough about the friendly hosts here. Rob was out of town but Carmen went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect during my stay--including breakfast in my room!! The food is outstanding.
We appreciate you staying with us and your kind words. We hope to see you when your travels bring you this way again.
5 on September 01, 2014
Carmen and Rob are lovely and their home is beautiful. Very accommodating (allowed our new rescue dog). Very convenient right off of I-95. Carmen made us dinner which was very good and welcoming after driving from NJ with the dog! Hope to see them again in the future. Barb Hamilton
Thank you for your kind review. We look forward to welcoming you back to Simply Divine.
5 on August 31, 2014
Rob & Carmen were wonderful hosts. The food was divine. This was our second stay and as usual was superb.Thanks
Thank you for staying with us in the past and we look forward to welcoming you again in the future.
4.8 on August 31, 2014
Rob and Carmen meet us and treated us very nice. We were the only ones in the house for that night. They even setup flowers and champagne as requested last minute. I wish we would have called earlier to do dinner at the house. Since the restaurants we wanted were closed on Mondays. The breakfast was great the following morning. I would recommend this a great couples get away.
We appreciate your patronage and letting us be part of your anniversary. We hope to see you again soon!
4.6 on August 17, 2014
We found this to be the best option when visiting our daughter at Campbell University. If you have the dream of owning and living in an historic home this is the place to experience this . This is a wonderful relaxing home away from home with what seems like your staying with family. I feel this is like staying in a mini Biltmore House, the hospitality and the historic feel is the best. David & Billie Deal Drexel NC
Thank you for staying with us multiple times. We appreciate your kind words and with your daughter all the best at Campbell.
4.8 on August 12, 2014
I rented a room here to take some pictures privately. LOVED this house and the room I rented. Unfortunately I was not able to stay due to personal/family issues that had to be addressed. I live less than 10 minutes away from here and have NEVER been inside. I do plan on staying in the near future. As far as the food, I am not able to rate due to I did not eat there, however, I am sure it was delicious. Staff was very nice and friendly!!! Beautiful place that was right here and I had never been there.
We're sorry too that you weren't able to stay longer. We hope you come back even if just to visit. Your reaction is not uncommon with many locals.
4.6 on June 17, 2014
What a fabulous place! Rob and Carmen coundn't have been any nicer. The food was absolutely fantastic. Will be back for sure
We look forward to seeing you on your next trip!
5 on April 28, 2014
Very much enjoyed our one night stay and the hospitality of Carmen and Rob. Large room and wonderful food. We especially like the option to also have dinner at the B&B which was a great salmon dinner at a very reasonable price.
We appreciate you staying with us. The dinner option came about at the request of our guests, many of whom are traveling north or south on I-95. We enjoy feedback from folks who stay with us and strive to make their stay a first rate experience.
4.8 on March 11, 2014
We usually stay here on our trips from North to South on I-95. It is convenient, very clean and a great value. In addition to breakfast, you have the option of getting a home-cooked dinner, which saves going out to a restaurant when you are tired. And the price is hard to beat. The owners are super-nice and we have no complaints about the service. We highly recommend it.
We thank you for your continued patronage and look forward to your next visit.
5 on February 28, 2014
We had a 4 night visit at Carmen and Rob's B&B for our nieces wedding. We had a great time and felt very much at home. The food was great and always hot off the stove. This was our first stay at a B&B and the gateway to many more. We will most surely stay at Simply Divine when we visit Dunn again.
We couldn't have asked for nicer guests. We hope to see you again soon.
5 on February 12, 2014
Simply Divine is a lovely inn. It is immaculate, comfortable, and the breakfast is wonderful.
Thank you for your kind review.
5 on February 09, 2014
Simply Divine was wonderful, this is the first bed and breakfast I had ever stayed. The breakfast was very good, our room was large and I loved all the furniture. Rob was so pleasant and friendly. I will be back and can't wait to make reservations.
3.4 on December 27, 2013
The breakfast was the best part of the experience. The room was big, but the place was not as what I expected and the bathroom is a bit outdated. The service was great, but the overall room experience was just average.
5 on November 24, 2013
Simply Divine was the first B&B we have stayed at and it raised the bar very high. The B&B was beautiful, Carmen & Rob were wonderful hosts and the food was excellent. We would highly recommend this B&B and plan to visit it again.
5 on November 16, 2013
Bob & I loved our overnight stay at simply divine - our gourmet dinner was delicious and we also enjoyed our breakfast - Rob and Carmen made our stay comfortable and we will definitely return on our next road trip south
4.8 on October 05, 2013
Spent a wonderful weekend at Simply Divine B & B. Carmen and Rob are excellent hosts. The rooms were lovely and quiet; slept very well. I would definitely recommend this location to anyone planning a stay in the area or looking for a quick, lovely getaway.
3.4 on October 03, 2013
One thing that was different about this place was that our room was a house down the street, and we had to walk over for breakfast. Luckily, we had good weather. Also, the sprinklers go off at 8:40ish, and blocked our way out with a stream of water over the sidewalk. The innkeepers were very nice, and very accommodating to our dietary needs. The Inn did not make our bed for our second night stay, although they did bring fresh towels.
5 on September 16, 2013
A great place to stay. Very convenient to I95. The hosts/owners provided very gracious service to us. We would definitely stay there again.
5 on September 06, 2013
The owner are extremely friendly and they worked with me around our wedding and guest arrival schedule I arco and them to friends and family...thank you for everything...
5 on September 06, 2013
This was the first time that my wife and I have stayed at a bed and breakfast, and it was a wonderful experience!! Rob and Carmen were great hosts. The decor in the house makes you feel as if you have stepped back in time about 100 years, and the stresses of the day seem to fall away as you walk the grounds and enjoy the peace and quiet of the area. Breakfast every morning was fresh, tasty and filled with great conversation with Carmen and the other guests. The B&B has wireless internet access in all rooms, but because the walls are plaster, you will get a better signal downstairs in the library. We will definitely stay at Simply Divine again.
5 on September 02, 2013
A gracious Inn in a very nice neighborhood.
5 on August 11, 2013
In every respect. Wonderful swimming pool is an added bonus. Will stay here again on 95 drives.
5 on August 03, 2013
My husband and I spent two nights at Simply Divine in late July 2013. The owners are friendly and welcoming and the property is lovely. We rarely stay in B&Bs and the whole experience was so much more than I expected that we'll consider this travel option in the future. Definitely will stay here again when we return to Dunn.
5 on August 02, 2013
I stay here whenever I am in the area. I found Simply Divine after being disappointed with the chain hotels on the highway. What a great place! Large living area and bedrooms, an outdoor pool, great breakfast - and all for the price of the typical mid-priced hotel. Rob and Carmen are very friendly and helpful hosts!
5 on July 26, 2013
We always enjoy our stay at Simply Devine. The rooms and breakfast are great and Rob and Carmen are so nice
4.6 on June 15, 2013
We stayed here recently and found it to be a lovely, well-preserved Edwardian home with delightful details and thoughtful hosts. The rooms were spacious and comfortable.

Lovely home,very nice Inn Keeper and you can't bet the price. Oh by the way if you love trains this is the place for you

Loved this B&B. Great Hosts, Great Breakfast. Perfect half way from PA to FL. Would definitely stay here again!
3.8 on May 12, 2013
We love historic homes...for the beauty, architecture, quality, and the stories behind them. We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this lovely home, which also has all the modern conveniences we enjoy. The bedroom was very spacious and comfortable, and the host was very hospitable and friendly, yet gave us our privacy, which was a perfect combination for us. The pool area was a nice treat, and breakfast was very good. We highly recommend.
4.2 on May 09, 2013
We stayed at this B&B on the way home from Florida. The outisde grounds were beautiful & the home was very tastefully done. The owners offered us a bigger room than what we had & we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast with another couple who happened to live a town over from us back home! My only downfall was that this place is close to the train tracks & if you are a light sleeper like me, you may not get a good night's sleep with all the noise & honking every hour throughout the night! But that is not the fault of the Inn. Great place to stay otherwise!
4.4 on April 30, 2013
We were traveling on I-95 from south Georgia to the Philadelphia area and were looking for a place to stay for a night at about the halfway point. The Simply Divine B&B showed up in a Google search and fit the bill for us perfectly. It was not more than 1/2 mile off of the highway, was inexpensive, and was available! The proprietor was very friendly and accommodating and directed us to a good local spot for some dinner that was perfect for us. Our experience was excellent. I'm still surprised at the price compared with the accommodations. Very, very reasonable. Thanks to Rob and Carmen for a great experience.
3.2 on April 25, 2013
SImply Divine is a peaceful setting for a quiet retreat! Lovely time there.
4.6 on September 30, 2012
Lovely B & B. Carmen and Rob were wonderful hosts. Enjoyed their dinner special and it was delicious. Breakfast was equally as good. VERY comfortable bed. Beautiful pool. Great value!
4.4 on June 23, 2012
We chose this lovely B&B as a break from the motels along I95 on our way to Florida. The home is very well decorated and the room was spacious. The mattress was incredible. We enjoyed a wonderful night's sleep. The innkeepers have a fridge stocked with cold beverages in the hall outside the rooms. Breakfast was delightful.
4.6 on May 19, 2012
What a perfect weekend! My entire family stayed at the Manor House. It was spacious, clean. beds were very comfortable. We had a wonderful time. Thanks
5 on March 10, 2012
We travel back and forth from FL to NY frequently and we always stop in Dunn because it is halfway in between and we discovered Simply Devine! Previously, we had always stayed the Barrington but toward the end of last year, well, it wasn’t as nice as it used to be and now that it’s closed we took a chance on the only other B&B in town and what a find! We purposely wanted a place where we could relax and have a nice dinner and some entertainment and Carmen & Rob (live-in hosts) offer meals any time of day. Plus they are much closer to 95 and are near downtown so it’s an easy walk to entertainment. And the rooms! All are beautifully decorated, have private baths and heat and heat ac temperature controls - plus they have a pool! What a find! They will make you feel at home - because you are!
4.4 on January 05, 2012
Simply Divine has become our regular stop when traveling between Amelia Island, FL and Columbia MD. The quiet neighborhood and lovely old home is a comfort after a day on the road. Simply Divine is not only a great place to stay, but it is also a great value. Rob and Carmen are gracious hosts. They accommodate our breakfast requests and have even provided a birthday cake for a special occasion. We enjoy knowing that our stay at Simply Divine will always be a good one.
4.2 on December 19, 2011
I am a frequent traveler to Dunn NC and decided to stay at Simply Divine for two nights. The innkeeper, Carmen was an excellent hostess and very sincere. The coral room was spacious and had its own thermostat which was great. There was plenty of hot water for late morning and evening showers. The stay was pleasant. The location was close to the I-95, antique shops, and restaurants. I enjoyed the stay and plan to return.
5 on August 07, 2011
My husband and I drive from Florida to NY about once every two years to see family. Dunn, NC is about a 9 hour drive for us and just a few miles from I-95. Simply Divine is a welcome respite after all those hours on the road. Our experience with the big hotel chains along that corridor has been less than satisfactory lately. We think it is well worth the few extra dollars to spend the night in comfort at Simply Divine. The beds are soft and comfortable and there is plenty of hot water for a shower at the end of a long drive. Plus, it's a gorgeous home and you feel more like you are staying with family, only better because they're not ;) It's crazy to spend money to stay anywhere else!
4.8 on August 01, 2011
We frequently make this charming inn a place to stay whenever we travel from FL to VA. Clean, elegantly comfortable with easy access to I-95. Breakfast is always terrific. Our hosts are "simply divine". Looking forward to our November visit! P & J Mc, Ormond Beach, FL
4.2 on March 02, 2011
Wonderful experience - will be back. The owners are no nice and attentive. The food was outstanding, and the room very clean.
5 on January 18, 2011
My husband and I decided to look for a Bed & Breakfast in lieu of the customary hotel off I-95 on our way South. Simply Divine B&B exceeded our expectations! So warm, inviting, charming and comfortable. Thanks Rob and Carmen for a wonderful treat!
5 on September 18, 2010
Our stay was maevelous from being greeted by the owner the room was spacios and well appointed the bathroom clean and the towels fluffy. The breakfast was DELICIOUS. Carmen was a delight she spent alot of time helping us find things in the area and was a delight to talk to.
4.6 on August 13, 2009
I wanted to surprise my wife with a getaway for our 5 year anniversary and I must say it was difficult finding one to fit our budget. I came across Simply Divine and I was very impressed with their packages and prices. I decided to give the Ultimate Celebration package a try as well included a couples massage which they organized for us in our room. The entire experience was very enjoyable, relaxing, and my wife was totally surprised and happy with the pampering we received. Carmen was a great host who was willing to cater to our every need! We would highly recommend Carmen and Rob to anyone desiring a great getaway in a beautiful house where every meal is scrumptious and the hosts are there to please!!
4.8 on August 12, 2009
Traveling to and from Florida on I-95 is not a pleasant trip. Our night at Simply Divine provided a much needed dash of elegance and pampering. Our hosts were wonderful--sincere, kind, and generous. The food was delicious. The dinner for two was delicious--from the organic salad to the fudge cake! Definitely a bargain at $30.00 per couple and so nice to escape the noise and unpredictable fare along the I-95 corridor. The house itself is stunning--a true mansion. Should the opportunity present itself to stay overnight (or longer) in central North Carolina, just north of Fayetteville, do treat yourselves to this bed and breakfast. You won't be disappointed. And, best of all, they will accept a small, well-behaved dog for a nominal fee. Thank you Carmen and Rob! Dan and Cindy Lees, Newark, DE
4.4 on July 01, 2009
We had a romantic weekend there inthe coral room during Memorial day weekend. Rob and Carmen are great. The dinner was phenomenal. The service was more than what we could ask for. My boyfirend and I loved every moment of the Romantic Retreat. This was our first time visiting a B & B ever. We plan to visit again.
5 on June 08, 2009
I stayed in the Coral room and I will definitely stay again & again when I am back in the area. This was a great value and the french toast was the best. I enjoyed the warmest conversation with Carmen, the owner. I have told many of my friends who travel into the area as well to stay there.
4.8 on May 07, 2009
Although our stay was brief (just one night), Carmen and Rob pampered us from the minute we arrived until the time we left. Our room was spacious and comfortable, the house itself exudes historic charm and grace, and our breakfast was delicious and filling. We definitely plan to visit again!
5 on March 12, 2009
We had a most wonderful stay. Carmen and Rob are outstanding hosts and the place could not have been better. They responded to all of our needs and went beyond what had been expected. For example, they provided us with lunch and would not charge us for the lunch which was plentiful and good. The three course dinner for $30 for each couple was very good and a real bargain. We enjoyed talking to Carmen and Rob and would recommend this B&B to anyone traveling along 95. The rooms were comfortable and beautifully furnished. The house is an old impressive building in a nice setting.
5 on March 11, 2009
Carmen and Rob provide unmatched hospitality, comfort, food and a beautiful home. What a value! I will never stay at those cookie-cutter hotels off 95 again when I can relax under the care of Carmen and Rob.

Husband and I found this lovely place via search on internet! We were not disappointed! Carmen our host was wonderful and made sure we had everything we needed! The breakfast was soooo delicious! I had an extra touch for my package deal which included roses in room, champagne, $50 gift certificate to local and delicious restaurant, chocolate, an appitizer plate and a delicious cake. Of course, that was what we wanted, you can just get the room and the hospitality, but for the price, you may as well go for the whole thing!!! I really loved the room, it was huge and soooo homey, that i really hated to leave!!! I give this place a 5 star rating!!! I will be back Mary and Bill Glenfield, NY

We so enjoyed our stay at the Simply Devine B&B. The inn keepers / owners Carmen and Rob are so gracious :-) As a history buff's, we enjoyed hearing about their Inn's beginning to present day. I found this inn while searching on your web site prior to leaveing for two weeks in Florida for vacation. I wanted to give my husband a "romantic surprise" on our way back home! "The Romance on a Shoestring" was just right. The room Carmen chose for us was "simply devine" :-) When we left the next morning, we told Carmen that we would be back again. We highly recommend this inn to all who like history and quaint towns; Dunn, North Carolina. Thanks for allowing us to leave our review :-) Eldersburg, Maryland

We found the Simply Divine B&B on our last night on the road of a 10 day road trip. Carmen was welcoming and saw to our every comfort. The house is magnificent! Our room was beautifully decorated, large and comfortable. Carmen and Rob, you are doing a great job as innkeepers. We will be back.

Our stay at Simply Divine definately exceeded our expectations. It's a beautiful home, and has a large pool with diving board. Our room was very nice. Bedding was superior. Our breakfast was absolutely delicious. Bountiful and of superior quality. The highlight of our stay! And the hosts, Rob and Carmen, couldn't have been more accomodating. The home is only 5 minutes off I 95, so it makes for a very pleasant alternative to a chain motel when traveling along the east coast. We highly recommend it. Tony and Kathy DAmico Melbourne, Fla.

We stayed at the Simply Divine bed in breakfast in Dunn for our 11th wedding anniversary. It is a new B&B and we were the 44th guests to stay. It is lovely. We arrived around 6pm and were shown to our bedroom, the Jade Room. We enjoyed a beautiful candlelit dinner for two in the dining room. Dinner was served on fine china with pretty silver chargers. It was perfect. We were served a fresh organic green salad, sweet potatoes grilled outside, and baked chicken. For dessert there was yummy pound cake with pecan crumbled topping served with ice cream and fresh strawberries. (We found out later that the hosts purchase all their food at the local farmer's market, so everything was fresh, locally purchased, even the eggs for breakfast). After dinner we went for a swim in the pool, just the two of us. We came back in and changed into pajamas and took our sparkling cider, wine glasses, chocolates, and a deck of cards out to the porch and played cards until it got a little too breezy. In the morning we chose to eat breakfast out on the patio. (We want a patio like this one)! We enjoyed our french toast made from homemade bread and our omelet made with feta, parsley, and dill. The B&B owners are very friendly, unobtrusive hosts. They were very willing to serve and be as present or absent as we wished. We want to go back again next year. It was wonderful and I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quick and romantic weekend.
