The Space

The William S. Gaskins house was built in 1985 on East Front Street on the mile wide Neuse River in Historic Downtown New Bern, NC. The 3 or 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home had been beautifully restored and decorated in a coastal casual inviting style and is very relaxing.

You'll love the heart pine floors, fun coastal furnishings and eclectic North Carolina Art.

The home has 2 queen bedrooms, a sun room with an inflatable very comfortable queen size bed and cute small room with a single bed.

There is a full bath upstairs with a soaking tub and shower and there is a smaller full bath upstairs with a shower.

You'll spend most of your inside time in the family room which is connected to the large back porch and to the full "designed for fun" kitchen with island top gas range . The kitchen is fully equipped down to the spices and we use it all the time for great meals and entertaining. There is also a new Aussie charcoal Grill outback.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My family and I really enjoyed staying at the William Gaskins House. Historic New Bern is just a great place and the home with great views of the water was perfect! The house was very clean and comfortable, especially the beds. We'll be back In New Bern and would definitely enjoy staying here again.

  • We were in town for a military wedding and needed a space to accommodate 7- 5 adults and 2 kids. This house was perfect. Located in a beautiful historic neighborhood near awesome restaurants/bars with the river in your back yard. The house is better than the photos. Check in/out and all communications were a breeze. My family made some great memories! Thanks for the stay!

  • Another great stay at the Historic William Gaskins house, this time with the kids. This house has such a great location in the charming town of New Bern and is an easy drive to many other places on the NC coast. Ed and Kay are the best, we can't thank them enough!

    Response from Eddie And Kay:

    While our reviews on this property show that we once cancelled within 2 days of a stay, this doesn't provide a clear picture of what happened. We received a guest booking request within 2 days of their stay. We booked the reservation and then discovered that the house was already committed through another property manager, then cancelled the reservation all within about 1 hour of the original booking. We offered the couple a substantial discount on a future stay as a good faith effort for any inconvenience. They totally understood and were not negatively impacted in any way. This is a great Airbnb home and we're good Hosts.

  • Superb house. Excellent location: 5 minute walk to downtown; quiet and beautiful neighborhood, right by the river. All the amenities. Very comfortable. Made our visit with local relatives just wonderful, hosting them for dinner and just having a quiet place to sit and chat.

We're very young at heart boomers. We love to laugh. We also love travel, good wine, good music, good conversation, good food and interesting people. We have lived in Raleigh's oldest and coolest Historic District for over 25 years and have watched, enjoyed and participated in the resurgence of Downtown Raleigh. We love sharing Raleigh's treasures with friends and guests. You'll love The Little Nest as your Downtown Raleigh get away. We've owned The William Gaskins House on the Neuse River in Downtown New Bern for over 14 years. It is right in the middle of the coolest Historic District in NC's colonial capital. It is a fun casual and very enjoyable place for your visit with family, friends or business associates. We've owned and operated Gray Court apartments with great friends Phil and Pam Neari for over 12 years, as we watched Downtown Winston Salem come back to life. By 2012, Downtown W-S had become very alive with Great Culture, Music, Art, Food, Beverages and Fun. So we decided it was past time to have a get away place there so we could enjoy the fun activities which are going on there constantly. You'll have the opportunity to enjoy all these great activities and more at our Downtown Winston Salem Getaway. You'll love the 5 minute walk to everywhere in Downtown Winston Salem from the Winston-Salem Dash baseball stadium to great restaurants, bars, galleries, shopping and more! Our philosophy as hosts is to provide "great getaways which are cozy like a bed and breakfast, but anonymous like a hotel". While we respect our guests privacy, we're more than willing to offer suggestions on fun things to enjoy and the "insider scoop" on the best of the best to see and do in our towns. We really love to get to know the real local culture from locals when we travel and enjoy offering the same opportunity to our guests. So by all means call us if you need us or would like to visit. Otherwise we'll give you your space. Live with Gratitude and Live for Today! Yesterday is History. Tomorrow is a Mystery. Today is a GIFT....... That's why they call it THE PRESENT!
