Lovely Artsy home-stay in historic New Bern
My siblings and I enjoyed our stay in this sweet, comfortable, well-appointed home. The owner is a wonderful artist and has much of her work displayed throughout the home. We were two couples and one single adult and slept comfortably. There are two very nice bedrooms with double beds on the second floor and loft space with fold out double bed and single bed for additional adults or children who don't mind a tight spiraling staircase. The kitchen was very well equipped for preparing meals. We all were so grateful to have a large home like this to enjoy quality time together. This is far more than just a place to sleep for the night. Easy access to downtown and walks along the waterfront. The host was abroad in France, but very responsive and helpful. She accommodated our request to arrive a bit early. All in all a great stay. I would be happy to stay here again.
Comfortable, roomy, guiet, with convenient location near downtown.
Lovely Colonial Home
We absolutely loved this cozy home full of character, decorated beautifully. Kristine and help were very solicitous and easy to contact if we had questions. It's location is perfect for walking or bicycling to and around the nearby, established in the 1700's, historic little town. We loved the fact that there were bicycles to use at our disposal. All three bedrooms had comfortable beds. The kitchen was well equipped.
I would just suggest to owner to print out for guests the home instructions and have them in the home, in addition to emailing them, and perhaps email them a little bit more ahead of time. Since we were on the road vacationing without wifi before we arrived, we had no time to read everything and prepare/shop for our stay.
Sweet, sweet home! Definitely want to stay here again next time we visit!
Wonderful New Bern Home
The Smith House is in the perfect location to enjoy the New Bern Downtown scene. It is literally around the corner from Tryon Palace and a short walk to all downtown restaurants. Kristina was more than accommodating before and during our stay. The house was equipped with everything needed for a relaxing stay!
Thanks for taking the time to write. I am so pleased you enjoyed the house....I look forward to my time there for all the reasons you mentioned. I would love to have you return soon. If your stay was anything like mine generally are...it means you left New Bern with a longer list of things to see and do than when you arrived. Ciao, Kristina
Wonderful vacation home
My husband and five other family members stayed in New Bern for six days. The house is warm and cozy~~we were extremely comfortable there. Downtown shops and restaurants are just a few blocks away, making it easy to explore both day and night. The Atlantic coast is about 90 minutes away. One day was spent at Atlantic Beach; another day we took a ferry to Shackleford Island to look for shells and see the wild horses, and we also visited the Cape Lookout Light Station. So much to see and do! Other days were spent relaxing on the screened porch enjoying a rainstorm or just sitting in the house enjoying each other's company. It was a perfect place for our time in NC!
Hello Susan, Thanks for taking the time to post a review of the Smith House. I am so pleased your stay was a memorable one.....I actually have some of your activities on my to-do list. For two years now, all my activity when visiting New Bern has been to change out things in the house...but, the time is drawing near that I can wholly spend my time exploring the area and your itinerary would be the first I would tackle. Come back soon and add to those great memories....and add to my to-see and do list. Kristina
This charming house was more than what we expected. It was perfect for the six of us with three bathrooms and three bedrooms. It is very well stocked and close to all the historic sites in New Bern. Kristina was wonderful to work with. We loved how they had kept as much original as possible from the 1850 house. We would definitely come back to this house. You won’t be disappointed!!!!
Hello Sharon...I am happy you enjoyed the house during your stay. I came in right after you and am enjoying every minute of being here in New Bern....I am so lucky to have gotten this property....it has such a welcoming feel, I always am looking forward to returning, so I can relate to your comments.. Kristina
