My wife and I stayed here for an extended weekend for a friends wedding and Eric and Margie were awesome hosts. We loved that the food was fresh and mostly from their garden and their recommendation for places to visit and restaurants to eat at. We both agreed, that if we were to travel without our kids again we'd go to RelaxInn. It's a perfect location to the beach and just enough away from the busiest parts of the Outer Banks to really relax. We also loved coming back to the B&B and jumping in the pool for the afternoon wine. It was such a great get away for us both.

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend in June 2013 and absolutely loved it! The location is perfect. It is walkable to restaurants and shops however, it not actually across from any. This makes it feel less touristy. The beach was so easy to access, literally it is across the street and down the boardwalk over the dunes, that we took advantage of this numerous times. We loved that they had beach chairs for us to use too! The grounds that they keep very beautiful-lots of plants and decorations, and areas to take advantage of like the pool, the numerous hammocks, the beach shower, the hot tub, the observation deck on the roof. Wonderful!! The Birds of Paradise Suite was incredibly comfortable too. The hosts were very welcoming and chatting with them and the other guests during the delicious breakfasts gave us good insight into the area. The name ‘RelaxInn’ suits this BB very well. When my husband and I woke up on the first morning we both commented and how distant a memory our workweek was. We can’t wait to get back to the Outer Banks and stay here again!!

My husband and I stayed here for four nights over the 4th of July weekend. We stayed in the Bodie Lighthouse room, which has a king bed, an outdoor entrance, a bath tub, a TV, DVD player, fridge and more. We LOVED our stay. The owners do such a great job with the little touches, such as the SUPER soft bathrobes in the room to use, the wine glasses and ice buckets in the room, the homemade sit down breakfast, the 4pm happy hour (which we drove back for every day), always asking us if we need anything, etc. And, the place is so calm and peaceful. There are only three rooms, so only three couples staying at a time. The pool and jacuzzi tubs are open to use and are so nice. The owners have DVDs, books and games in the shared living room that you can use. Also, the location is GREAT. Short walk to the beach, restaurants, and the pier. Short drives to the movie theater, Wright Brothers Memorial, mini golf, the lighthouse, and more beaches and towns. Really just a great place to stay. We are looking forward to our next trip.

Friends, some of whom we rarely see but truly love, were staying for a week at a cottage. We had been invited to join them but discovered the cottage was too small to accommodate everyone. So within about two weeks of arrival, we called the Relaxinn to see if they could take us for four days. Eric looked at his schedule and figured out how to accommodate our needs. We were relieved to have a place to stay but really delighted when we were greeted and shown around.

The Relaxinn is very comfortable and well-appointed. Our bed had plenty of pillows and was truly comfortable. We slept extremely well. With the "Birds of Paradise" room, we had a sitting room too. The bath is large and even has a bar in the tub for hanging wet clothing. There are also hooks outside of each room for wet towels and clothing/beachwear. The accoutrements are well thought out and make coming back from the beach easy. There was a small frig in the room, drinking glasses, and an ice bucket. Eric and Margie have gone to a lot of trouble to ensure that the guests' surroundings are attractive as well as functional.

Wine and snacks are served at about four in the afternoon but Eric waits to know you have returned fro your outing so it does not just sit if you come in from your day later. The herbed hummus was wonderful. Eric and Margie even ask what kind of wine you like best and try to accommodate likes and dislikes. Breakfast was lovely. Not only was the food good, the other guests, plus Eric and Margie made for excellent company. We laughed through breakfast every morning. Our hosts were also careful. An allergy was discovered at the last minute and a new breakfast was prepared for the guest who suffered from the allergy. Coffee and tea are available at all times in the common area.

There is a nice hot tub and a beautiful pool. The pool area includes comfortable seating, sun protective umbrellas, and flowering plants. The Relaxinn is a great place, especially if you do not have a whole week for the beach, good food, good company, comfortable accommodation. We had a wonderful experience.

My wife, daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights. The owners were cordial and our room The Birds of Paradise Suite was clean. After that it was all downhill. Our suite consisted of two rooms. The first room had a king sized bed with a dresser and a small refrigerator that sat on top of some sort of stand. and a television that set on the dresser. The furniture and the carpet had seen better days and nothing matched. The pictures of the birds in the room were gaudy.There were no chairs in this room and there was barely room to walk thru the room. If you wanted to watch television you had to sit on the bed. The room was claustrophobic with only one small window in the corner of the room near the head of the bed. The only thing this window did even though it was closed, was to let the sound of the traffic keep you up during the night. The room was so small we had no place to put our suitcases. The temperature was controlled by the owners. The other tiny room next to our room had a small one seat sofa type chair that pulled out into an undersized twin bed. There were two old straight back chairs from some ones old dining room set that were in the room. We put our suitcases on them as you certainly couldn't sit on them to relax. The owners live directly above our room and we could hear them until they went to bed. And you could hear them again early in the morning,not so relaxing. There was a common area outside of the three rentals that had some coffee. The door in our room was paper thin and you could hear anyone that might use this area. Their advertising brochure is very misleading. The pictures of our room are 5 years old and it looks nothing like what we rented. We rented this unit for four nights but we had an emergency come up at home, so we left one night early. I told the owner the second day we were there that we had a problem and he said we would lose our rent if he didn't rent it. We lost the one night rent and I want the readers to understand this so this review does not appear to be sour grapes.. We stayed at two other Bed and Breakfasts on our trip that each got 5 stars from us. If you care to check-one is the Beaufort House in Ashville, N.C. and the other is The Big Mill B@B in Williamston ,S.C. The unit we stayed in at the Relaxinn was way overpriced for what was offered and certainly was not very relaxing.

We told our guest prior to making the reservation that the Birds of Paradise had one king size bed and that the other room had a pullout twin and was for the once in occasion single parent guest with a son or daughter. We were told that an adult daughter did not mind a pull out bed. I then suggested you go somewhere else and recommended another B&B that had larger rooms. You called back and insisted on staying with us because of our reviews? We made the reservation and did not charge a third person charge. As far as leaving early? We were told that a kitchen re-model was not on schedule and we did not deem that as an emergency. Our policy statement clearly states our refund position. We received several requests for a refund and were even accused of not re-opening the room for rental. Our guest is correct it is not the grapes that are sour.
