We had a wonderful weekend at the Inn with friends in early December. The accomodations were very comfortable and the proprietors were wonderful. They gave us a special happy hour where we sat by the fire our first night and hosted their first oyster roast after the local Christmas parade that afternoon. Oriental is a charming town and we plan...

We came here with friends for a weekend - an enchanting inn and town. The owners, Lucy and Lou, go over and above to ensure your visit to the Inn and Oriental is perfect. The inn is beautiful with each room different - all are nicely decorated and very clean. Each evening you are invited for a drink in the...

My husband and I just enjoyed a great weekend in Oriental, NC. It was our first time there and the village was celebrating Christmas with a parade, decorations, entertainment and much more. Loved the village. Our stay at the Inn made our weekend extra special. We had the Charleston room which was large, lovely and very comfortable. The living room...

This warm and inviting inn is within easy walking distance to all that this quaint and quirky village has to offer... from great sailing to entertainment to just relaxing in charming surroundings. Our room (Charleston) was spacious and very comfortable. The common areas were lovely and included the living room where the generous Happy Hour is held, the sun-filled dining...

I got married this past Saturday in Oriental and myself along with several of my friends and guests stayed here. I fell in love with this B&B. Lucy & Lou are so wonderful and friendly and were so helpful to this bride! From borrowing scissors and tape to keeping us stocked with pretzel sticks and drinks, they could not have...

Went with two other couples for a fine weekend in Oriental. Crazy about Lou and Lucy, the Innkeepers. Breakfast was ample and delicious both mornings, as were the nightly cocktail/wine hours. What a hospitable place! We hope to return again soon.

We recently spent five nights in The Inn at Oriental. This was our first experience at a B&B and if this inn is a good representation of other B&B's I can promise you it won't be our last. Lucy and Lou Athey are the innkeepers and you will never meet two warmer people. We were scheduled to go right after...

I had passed by the Inn at Oriental on previous occasions and wanted to try it this time. I was pleasantly surprised. The rates are the same all year long and very reasonable.

Enjoyed my stay in the Nantucket room at the Inn at Oriental. Hosts Lucy and Lou make you feel very welcome and can help you get acquainted with the area. The photos and description accurately depicted the room. The Nantucket had a private deck which made loading and unloading luggage convenient. The king size bed was very comfortable and the...

What a charming, well-run little B&B this is! Our room was clean and comfortable and we were made to feel so welcome. Breakfast was outstanding and Lucy is just a lovely lady. Unfortunately, minutes after we left, we discovered we had a flat tire, so back we went and, even though we'd checked out, my husband was able to use...
