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.
The home has basic cable and wireless internet.
Enjoy afternoon drinks from the huge back porch as you watch sail boats, fishing boats and Hatteras Yachts cruise past on the river.
Walk through historic residential and commercial districts and enjoy quaint shops, cafes and galleries. Downtown New Bern is a historic district and is home to many beautiful late 18th and 19th century restored homes and gardens.

Come On Down!
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!
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
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.
Come On Down!
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.
