Pam's Pelican has everything you need to enjoy your vacation and then some. This cozy house is in an ideal location halfway between town and the beach. It was very clean and well stocked with beach essentials. Bicycles, coolers, and chairs can be used by the guests. Family style breakfast every morning was amazing.

Pam's Pelican is a laid-back, comfortable B&B that runs on island time! Pam is a gracious, accommodating and friendly hostess and we felt right at home. Breakfasts are plentiful and tasty. We traveled with our two Australian Shepherds and they were welcomed by Puff, the host Pomeranian and had a great time! We started in the Sun Daze room, which... More

This was a great place to stay. Pam was very welcoming and made it feel like home and that we were all old friends. The rooms are clean, spacious and the conch shell shower heads are a cool touch. Breakfast in the morning around the table was great to be able to talk to others that are staying there and... More

It was a delight to find a bed and breakfast that took pets, although it turns out there are lots of pet friendly places in Ocracoke. Pam's motto is "Peace, love and bacon grease: and there was plenty of the Applewood smoked bacon at breakfast, along with scrambled eggs (in one of its variations) and French toast, or blueberry pancakes...

Speaking with Pam and Jan (pronounced "Yon") on the phone when making reservations was lovely. We arrived late and found a note on the door directly us to our room, which was so easy... More

Great place to stay in Ocracoke for a fews days or longer. Pam & Yon were very welcoming and made us feel right at home.

This place was great, Pam and Yon made us feel like family and the room was more than one could expect.
