The wedding on the grounds of the Inn turned out to be a wonderful venue. Andrea and Courtney were friendly, helpful and hospitable the entire time. Our room,was on the corner of the first floor. It was very relaxing to escape from the wedding festivities to sit on the private screened in porch. The room was cleaned every day. I... More

We had a fabulous stay at the Sunset Inn. The Oleander room is beautifully decorated & provides all the amenities for a comfortable stay. The beds are comfy, the rooms are clean and the breakfasts are wonderfully diverse. The screened in private porches provide a relaxing, peaceful place to enjoy the marsh and its wildlife. The staff are above &... More

The Sunset Inn was so quiet and relaxing. The room was just beautiful and unbelievable clean! The private screen porch is a wonderful addition to each room, a great place to relax, read a book or just enjoy the quietness and the beauty all around. The staff treated us like family. What a treasure Andrea is as office manager, she... More

My husband and I watched this inn being built a number of years ago, and we have been returning once or twice a year ever since. The staff treat us like family, and give us great service. It is always a quiet and restful retreat. We like sitting on our private back porch and reading or walking to the nearby... More

The Inn is beautiful, super clean and in a nice location with all rooms overlooking the marsh from private, screened balconies. Andrea made us feel very comfortable from the minute we walked in and the rest of the staff was equally warm and friendly. Our room was very quiet, spacious, well-appointed and absolutely spotless. Even with the very heavy rain... More

We could go to the beach and/or sit on our private screened in porch and enjoy what we love about the beach. Room was very private and the Staff was very friendly and helpful... More

My husband and I have vacationed on Sunset for years with our kids. Now that we have an empty nest we didn't need a big house to rent so the Inn was perfect. The staff was very friendly, the room was clean and pretty and the breakfasts were great. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to... More

My wife and I randomly chose The Sunset Inn for our honeymoon getaway in 2000 – which just happened to be the Inn’s inaugural season. Now, fourteen years later we think of the Inn and its superior staff as our home and family away from home. Beautifully situated on the grasslands of the island, with immaculate and spacious rooms and... More

My wife and I are from out of state and were looking for a place to get away for a night while in NC visiting family. We found Sunset Inn, and couldn't have been happier with our stay. The rooms were comfortable and modern, yet didn't have that "hotel" room feel. The location is beautiful. It is a five minute... More
