Tucked away in beautiful, historic, downtown Elizabeth City, the Culpepper Inn Bed and Breakfast is just one hours' drive from Norfolk International Airport and is surrounded by lush lawns, shrubs, and trees. This brick Georgian Revival style manor Elizabeth City Bed and Breakfast was built by William and Alice Culpepper in 1935 and sits only blocks away from the Pasquotank River.

A fantastic place for a romantic get away, to recharge your engines. Great and friendly service from the family who owns and operates it. We will return for the other Special Events that are held throughout the year. Rene & Owen Etheridge

I needed one night's accommodation. Elizabeth City doesn't abound in places to stay, but the Culpepper Inn proved to be quite pleasant and met all my needs. My room was a bit decor-intensive, but not overdone. The bath was modernized with an elegant tub and shower fixture, which

We were pleased to meet you overnight needs, Jim! The description on-line for your Patriot Room: "Red, white and blue set the theme for this second floor room. The antique fireplace mantle, queen bed, and gas fireplace welcome the business traveler, our military guests, and anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay. The bath features a pedestal sink and a large soaking tub. All rooms in the Camellia Guest House include a television, microwave, mini refrigerator, coffee pot, and hair dryer". We are pleased you enjoyed the soaking tub! We pride ourselves in being a historic inn with modern amenities available for those who prefer them. Our decor is distinct from a uniform hotel as we personalize the rooms to be more home-like. Thanks for choosing us and for visiting our quaint & hospitable small town.

The place to go if you need a break. Quite and laid back. Downtown in walking distance. Beach is an hour away. We enjoyed it stay here. Chilling next to the pool was nice. They gave a walkthrough that showed us everything we needed. Tavern opens. 24 hours for tv and BYOB.

Loved the original bath tiles.
Thank you so very much for thinking of us! Unfortunately we are booked Saturday and we do not host children under 12. We are a small historic Inn full of glass and antiques. May I recommend the Elizabeth City Bed Breakfast? They are causal and might have availability. 252-338-2177, Enjoy your visit and thank you again for the inquiry!
