Relaxing! We stayed for three (3) nights in the cottage and loved it. Very homey and peaceful and the house has an incredible charm about it. Craig and Blue are the best and Craig's cooking is awesome. We will definitely be back to explore more of what New Bern has to offer and this great B&B!

My Mom and I had a great time staying at this lovely B&B, right in downtown New Bern. The proprietor, Craig, is an excellent and attentive host; he's gone to great lengths to make this place a comfortable place to rest. He's a fantastic cook, and prepared an excellent quiche with fresh vegetables and country ham for breakfast. He was...

My granddaughter booked the room with twin beds! Close to everything, walking distance. Loved our stay. Cannot think of a thing we needed-- it was all there. Perfect sleep and breakfast. Will stay there, again.

The Captain's Stay is a delightful BnB we highly recommend. Our family of 4 ( two kids under 10) enjoyed the cottage behind the house. We had our own entrance, parking spot, and a small deck. This part of the property is also wheel chair accessible and suitable for dogs. The furnishings are tasteful and clean, a very cozy atmosphere....

We had the most memorable and relaxing girls weekend at the Captain's Stay! We were able to fit 9 ladies in the 3 bedrooms in the main house. The house is absolutely gorgeous, beautifully decorated, with attention to every little detail. Denise and Craig really roll out the red carpet for their guests, from the wine and cheese upon arrival...

What a charming 200 year old house. The owners Craig and Denise made us feel welcome from the minute we arrived. Every afternoon at 4:30 there were some homemade treats and a glass of wine or beer and don't get me started on the breakfast, the best we had in years (and we are foodies)! Great place, great people and...

I went to New Bern looking for a small town with warmth,charm and character, not expecting that the people I met there would also fit that description. My stay couldn't have been more comfortable: a warm cozy living area to read or watch television, a high pressure hot shower after a visit to the beach, a delicious breakfast...ask for some...

The hosts are very nice, and helpful. The breakfast was fabulous! The house has character but the bed was chosen for how it fit the decor and not comfort I think, it wasn't very comfortable and noisy whenever I moved.

Thank you so much for your review. We take all reviews to heart and will definitely look into the issue of the bed in the twin room. Have not had any other issues with them so we are happy to have this feed back.
