The Jarvis Mansion is a small and hard-to-find bed and breakfast located along a quiet portion of New Bern's main Pollock Street, just a block or so away from the scenic waterfront. The historic two-story white home, built around the turn of the 20th century, is part of a series of historic residences that line this street, many of which are converted B&Bs and other lodgings for visitors with a love of historic, romantic, and all-together relaxing accommodations.

Lined with crepe myrtles that bloom in the summertime, and featuring a hefty handful of historic sites, restaurants, and walking tours located just a block or two away, the Jarvis Mansion B&B, in addition to the half dozen other bed and breakfasts that can be found long this portion of Pollock Street, are conveniently located with walking distance of the busiest sections of downtown, but feel world's away from the rest of North Carolina, with a location that is a historical and primarily residential, and lushly landscaped throughout.

Reservations can be made by calling 252 636-6030 or in person during a downtown stroll. With a picturesque setting that belies a busy downtown located just a block or two away, a stay at the Jarvis Mansion or any of the Pollock Street B&Bs is a romantically inviting retreat that's all about peace, quiet, and easy-going relaxation.
