Welcome to the Harmony House Inn!

The Harmony House Inn is an 8,000 square foot, Greek Revival style two-story home located in the heart of the historic district of New Bern, North Carolina. Originaly built in 1853 by Turpentine Merchant Benjamin Ellis, this totally restored historic property has operated as a premier Bed and Breakfast since 1985.

Four blocks from the historic Tryon Palace and one block from the New Bern Riverfront Convention Center, the Inn is just steps away from quaint shopping, art galleries, restaurants and other attractions.

The Harmony House is furnished with the unique blend of European, African, and American Artwork, locally handcrafted and fine furniture, antiques and other memorabilia. This unusually spacious house features three ground-floor guest suites each with private bathroom, and six second-floor guest suites of which two are luxury King suites featuring bathrooms with whirlpool tubs. Additionally, the Inn includes a comfortable parlor and formal dining room, cozy reading nook, a game corner, upstairs conversation area and a full width front porch for guests to enjoy. Off street parking is available behind the Inn

Our Rennovations are Complete!

After experiencing six months of hard working crews bustling in and out of the Inn, the dust is finally settlling marking the end to our (first) renovation project. In the now expanded dining room, work included opening walls, refinishing floors, adding trim, new paint and new furniture.

The foyer and entryway received a full face lift with completely refinished flooring, repaired plaster walls, new paint and installation of new lighting. A brand new guest powder room was created and the tiny closet office space was doubled in size.

Rounding out the main floor overhaul was installation of a full commercial kitchen including new custom cabinetry, granite counters, new flooring, lighting, appliances and fixtures.The highlight of the updated kitchen space is the walk-in pantry with floor to ceiling shelving! A free standing, antique german crafted island with butcher block top completes the space while also providing the perfect back drop for cooking classes and hands on cooking sessions with the Innkeeper.

Come see for yourself the beautiful results of this renovation project - book your upcoming stay with us today!
