My husband and I chose to stay in Elizabeth City during the first leg of a road trip through NC. The daily commute to the Outer Banks was a bit more time consuming than we expected, however, our stay at Pond House Inn was well worth the time and the savings. The inn is a lovely B & B with... More

We unfortunately were able to stay one night, but it was truly lovely and we will definitely be back! We stopped in at the Pond House Inn for one night on the way to OBX for our annual family vacation. The room was lovely and clean and they were very accommodating with a late check in. Breakfast was delicious and... More

We have stayed at B&B's in USA and Europe and therefore I do feel we have some experience in travel and lodging. This however was a very disappointing stay. The location is great and the property itself is beautiful and unique. The house however is in need of some TLC. The bedroom was large and the king size bed was... More

ThePondHouseInn, Owner at Pond House Inn, responded to this review

It is always difficult to appreciate guests who do not accept the responsibility to inform the innkeeper if they have a problem, or give the innkeeper an opportunity to correct the problem. In this case, the guests never complained or informed the innkeeper that the TV from another room was bothering them. Had they done so, we would have requested... More

We were so excited to stay at the Pond House Inn. My boyfriend and I had birthdays the week before and were looking forward to a much needed get away after a long week of work. We arrived to a welcoming note at the door to let ourselves in and make ourselves at home. The room was lovely. When Martha... More

We were happy to have this lovely couple stay at our inn. We are surprised, however, by this review. As an innkeeper, I am well aware that some people like to have a lot of personal interaction, and others do not. Therefore, we follow the lead of our guest: if they show interest in the inn and its history or... More

We were in town visiting family and spent a delightful couple of days. The accommodations are very well kept, and the view of the river is most relaxing. The breakfast is well prepared and delicious. A great innkeeper also!

Pond House is one of the toughest reviews I've had to make on Trip Advisor. Martha, the owner prepares one of the most delightful breakfasts I've ever had at a B&B.Our breakfast choices were awaiting us in our room. Make your choices and leave the form in a basket outside of your room. How about a waffle, 3 eggs over... More

We were treated to a night away at the Pond House and were not disappointed. Pond House is a little off the beaten path with peaceful grounds and a great view of the river from both the three bedrooms, the porch and just about anywhere on the grounds. My bride & I were greeted with a welcome note at the... More

My husband and I travel to Elizabeth City periodically to visit with family. The first time we stayed at The Pond House, I was utterly amazed at the beauty of the grounds, grandeur of the house, impeccable accommodations, delicious and bountiful breakfasts and the most gracious hostess. I am a water lover and was mesmerized by a beautiful window view... More

I recently stayed at The Pond House Inn with my mother and grandmother. I could not have asked for a better place to stay! Our room was cozy, and had everything we needed. Also, the breakfast was to die for. The atmosphere at The Pond House is quiet and soothing. I really enjoyed the pond and took every opportunity to... More

A wonderful place to relax. Spent two days here in route home from the Outer Banks. Stayed in the Blue Room. Very comfortable room. Well appointed. Shower was good. Nice view from room. Owner was super. Helpful, but gave us our privacy. Breakfast was tasty, quite filling and timely. Each night before retiring, we completed the menu request with the... More
