Words From Our Guests

“Me and my wife went here on our honeymoon and we absolutely LOVED this place! We stayed in the Virginia Dare room and the entire experience exceeded our expectations. The innkeeper Pam was so kind and fun to be around and her dog Peanut was so cute and friendly! The food was amazing and the Inn did an amazing job providing stellar service in the midst of COVID.”

“Hands down, the best place we have ever stayed! The staff was incredible – so helpful, kind, and just all around great people. The breakfast was amazing, the beds super comfortable, and everything was incredibly clean. The staff went to great lengths to keep everything constantly cleaned. During this time of Covid-19, I greatly appreciated their efforts to keep us safe and I truly did feel safe during our entire stay. We can’t wait to go back!”
