Lifestyle Change at The Meadows Inn

212 Pollock Street, New Bern, NC, USA
$750,000

Description

The Meadows Inn is a lifestyle change opportunity! The price of the real estate far exceeds the value as a business here in New Bern, North Carolina. The current owners by design have operated the property to meet their individual needs; however, the property awaits new owners to take advantage of this thriving community.  Located less than 2 blocks from the riverfront in one direction, and 2 blocks in the other direction to historic center of New Bern, the Inn couldn’t be in a better location.

The structure was originally built by John Alexander Meadows in 1847 and the original “2 over 2 room” was passed to his daughter upon his death in 1865. This Antebellum property is part of history–if walls could talk!  The family also owned and operated the J.A. Meadows Grist Mill, J.A. Meadows Ship Yard, and The Meadows Fertilizer Company.

The history of the building continues to unfold with the stories and pictures from former inhabitants that made this building their home prior to the bed & breakfast.

Between 1898 and 1904, during Mayer Hahn’s ownership, the house was considerably enlarged. Standing now much as it did when remodeled for Hahn, the two story house is covered by an unusual, deeply concave mansard roof. The rear addition is somewhat wider than the front, creating a projecting bay effect at each side. Several of the original simple, transitional late Federal-Greek Revival mantels remain in the home, along with the introduction of a handsome late-Victorian stair with a heavy octagonal newel and turned balusters, and mantels and trim typical of the period.

It has a rich history of being a private residence, survived the Civil War, and became an antique shop during the 20th Century.

In 1980, the inn became the premier B&B in New Bern. Formerly called the Kings’ Arm B&B, it changed names at the turn of the millennium. The fourth innkeepers returned the name to its historic roots.

Today, it is within walking distance to restaurants, casual or fine, antique shops, galleries, marinas and the Birthplace of Pepsi.   Historical sites such as the Tryon Palace and Gardens and the new North Carolina Historic Museum are also a short distance from the Inn. New Bern is the second oldest town in North Carolina and a popular tourist destination.

With all of its splendor, charm and history, The Meadows Inn remains a casual, charming inn full of Southern Hospitality.
