All rooms overlook the marsh which means great views at all times - no looking just at a house next door. Breakfast was always wonderful. Not a huge buffet - but for the type of people staying in a place like this it is just right. The beach is about 1/3 mile away. You can get a parking pass and... More

We stayed in the "Old Baldy" suite. Andrea and Courtney were so friendly, helpful and attentive. The ambiance is relaxing, clean, friendly and welcoming. Like home but better. No detail of guests comfort is overlooked in the rooms or the facility. Our room had a beautiful private screened balcony complete with porch swing and rocking chairs. The king bed was... More

I stayed at The Sunset Inn for a Writer's Retreat and the inn turned out to be such a treat for me. The rooms were spacious and well equipped with the guests' needs in mind. The private screened in porch with rocking chairs made the outdoors part of my room experience and turned out to be the perfect place to... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at The Sunset Inn. I chose this B&B because the room offered a private, screened-in porch with rocking chairs and a porch swing. What I found was way beyond my expectations. The room was clean...much better than most beach hotels. The location is perfect. My husband and I rode our bikes down to the beach... More

This was the first time at The Sunset Inn for the wife and I. Other family members had stayed here and liked it so much. We enjoyed our time from the "greeting to the goodbye"! The staff was super, rooms were roomy and clean, just a very relaxing time at the beach. Highly recommend!

We have stayed at Sunset Inn many times. It is always a pleasure. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, the staff always friendly and helpful. We have stayed for a night, weekend, and week, and will stay there again. A great place for a romantic getaway, place to reflect and meditate or write. We stayed for a writing retreat... More

We chose The Sunset Inn based on the fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor and we are happy to report that the five star rating is for real! The property is magnificent. Super clean and well maintained, it is a unique hybrid of Bed and Breakfast meets Hotel. The staff is all friendly and accommodating! Sunset Beach is a low key,... More

We had just had our wedding on the same day we arrived at the Inn. We arrived late after the long three hour drive from the reception. Staff was kind enough to leave the key in our room and a bottle of champagne and let us check-in in the morning. This was the start of a honeymoon that ended early... More

So relaxing and welcoming. The screened in porch with rockers off the room was a favorite spot. The extended Continental Breakfast was very good - made fresh there on site...and a homey dining area to enjoy it in. It's close to the beach, also. There are storage rooms downstairs for equipment - bikes, floats, beach chairs etc.. We did not... More

We wanted a nice out of the way, non commercial place to stay, and the Sunset Inn provided that for us completely. Every room has a view, and the walk to the beach was just right. We'll be back for sure. I'm looking forward to getting one of the corner rooms next time. JEFF
