The Aerie…two beautiful buildings, one bed and breakfast.


Welcome to The Aerie Bed & Breakfast

The historic Street-Ward residence, circa 1882, is home to the premiere New Bern, North Carolina bed and breakfast, guest house and conference center. The Aerie Bed & Breakfast features a total of nine well-appointed rooms, each with private bath, modern amenities and tasteful decor that reflect the home’s late-Victorian heritage. Across the street, The Aerie Guest House and Conference Center offers two guest suites and a meeting facility to host events and functions. All guests enjoy a full gourmet breakfast, complimentary soft drinks, bottled water, and Keurig coffee, and our evening social hour with wine, lemonade and hors d’oeuvres.

The Aerie is one block from the Colonial Tryon Palace Historic Sites and Gardens, and walking distance to fine dining, antique shops, marinas and The Birthplace of Pepsi. Our North Carolina inn is the perfect lodging choice for the discriminating traveler interested in convenience to the town’s top attractions, while still experiencing the warmth and charm of elegant accommodations. Sailing, fishing and fine dining are all at your fingertips. The Aerie B&B is located in the heart of it all!

Whether it’s business or pleasure, or for a romantic weekend getaway, your stay will be one surrounded with award-winning, personal attention and one that you will want to repeat.

“Comfy Bed and Amazing Breakfast!”

“We stayed after an international flight on the way to Camp Seafarer. Our hosts were very helpful with the challenges of travel, including cancelled flights and strange arrival times. Part of our party arrived very early in the morning, and although our room was not ready, we were well taken care of. The remainder of our party arrived very late that night. The incredibly comfortable bed with cozy linens were a welcome respite and breakfast was truly a highlight of the trip. Possibly the best I’ve ever had – both mornings. Yum! I highly recommend a stay at the Aerie, if you love the intimacy of a B&B.”~~via TripAdvisor Call to reserve your stay in our Tuscarora room, and enjoy our luxurious linens and gourmet breakfast! 1.800.849.5553  ... read more
