The staff was very nice and accommodating. They certainly achieve an "at home" atmosphere. The food was good and the view of the sound is peaceful. The rooms are very clean. My wife and I would definitely visit again.

We loved the quiet relaxation of The Inn on Pamlico Sound. The Inn is clean, comfy, and service oriented. Make sure you get an all-inclusive package with meals and free bottle of wine with dinner. It's an awesome value. For lunch they pack a gourmet meal, plated, in a picnic basket to take to whatever adventure you are experiencing that...

We booked an extended weekend December getaway. The Inn is the best place we've ever stayed. The room was fabulous with an amazing view of the sound (the Jasmine room).
