My significant other and I stayed with Pam while on Ocracoke for a wedding. We came as guests and feel as if we left as friends. 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. The place has a very relaxed laid back vibe with all the guests hanging out on the front porch in the evening swapping stories and getting to know each other. Pam's breakfasts are amazing, no...

This place was great, Pam and Yon made us feel like family and the room was more than one could expect. I have been traveling to Ocracoke for 30 years now and this place was as nice as any other place on the Island with hospitality one would only expect from friends and family. I hate to give it a...

My husband & I stayed at Pam's for 3 nights while celebrating our anniversary. Pam made us feel like family. She made a GREAT breakfast. We didn't even eat lunch while we were there because the breakfasts were so filling. In the evenings, we would sit around the beautiful front porch & Pam & the other guests would hang out... More

My sister and I were just coming off of a 3 day hike of the Outer Banks and needed a real place to rest our weary bones. We walked past and immediately were drawn in by the relaxing feel of this house. Dogs were wagging their tails on the front porch, Pam was inviting us in for a sit from... More

My husband and I went to Ocracoke to get some relaxing beach time with our pup. Pam and Jan have created a wonderful, welcoming place for humans and dogs alike. The breakfast was delicious and substantial- we even had the chance to sample some grilled shrimp one night. Would definitely visit again- our dog already misses her new friend, Mollie,... More

A Key West vibe, if you're willing to trade round-the-clock Duval Street partying for breezy, quiet nights sipping wine on the deck and strolls on pristine beaches. We stayed at Pam's for two nights with a rambunctious young dog who made fast friends with the well-mannered Molly and Puff, who taught her a thing or two about kicking back and... More
