Beautiful location, our room had a great ocean view. There is an adjacent restaurant that will meet all your needs. We had a romantic weekend away. There is a gorgeous deck to relax on although it was too cold the weekend we were there.

Visited over a 3 day weekend. The inn is run by locals who were born and raised on the island. The staff is incredibly nice with the southern charm you always hear about. The inn has every amenity you can think of ... including a home theatre in the basement. If you are looking for the ultimate quiet get away,...

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights for our honeymoon and it was a fantastic experience! The staff were friendly and accommodating and the room and grounds were lovely. We had a beautiful view of the Intracoastal Waterway and enjoyed afternoon snacks and coffee everyday. We didn't have time to check out the outdoor activities (bicycles and water sports...

My wife and I stayed at the Inn for two nights during our trip to make arrangements for purchasing a home in Frisco. It was so nice to return to the Inn and have a delicious meal and a restful night's sleep at the end of a somewhat stressful day. Plus, there were free snacks and sodas available 24/7 in...

The Inn on Pamlico Sound is a lovely spot right on the water. Our room had a porch with rocking chairs overlooking the water. We were in the Hyacinth Room which is a few steps from the Cafe. Everything you could possibly need was thought of and provided. Free full-on breakfast was amazing. The staff leaves afternoon coffee, tea, cookies...

My husband and I wanted a small getaway and chose the Outer Banks (neither of us had ever been). We booked the Oleander room for 3 nights. From our arrival to departure, everything was perfect. The room was big, bed was comfortable, big bathroom, everything felt very clean. The staff was incredibly nice and accommodating. The morning coffee and afternoon...

If I was looking up the word "pampered" in the dictionary, I believe at some point, one of the definitions would read, "The Inn on the Pamlico Sound". Steve and his staff have thought of everything including an electric charging station for Tesla Automobiles. Dining is superb; they grow there own vegetables and seasonings. And last, the setting and the...

I flew up to Raleigh to meet my wife who was on a business trip for a little weekend R&R. After a night in Chapel Hill to see family we decided to go to the Outer Banks. We stayed at the Inn on Pamlico Sound in the Jasmine Suite. Being it was during the off season, the room rate was...
