I loved my stay. The people were friendly, the rooms felt like home, we had a blast! It's in a great area, beautiful location and the rooms being feet away from the pool was my favorite. That's not to mention the pier with fishing available. I would go again 😁

Hubby and I visited for one night. We stayed in cottage #17 and loved it. It was clean, bed was comfortable, bathroom and cottage was roomy, kitchen had everything we needed and the front porch (with rocking chairs) was a perfect place for our glass of wine before dinner. The property is really pretty with all the oak trees and...

When I made the reservation I verified that they had a hot tub. We were really looking forward to relaxing and using the hot tub. When we arrived they said "it should be ready tomorrow" because they were doing normal maintenance. It was closed the entire time we were there. Also a/c smelled of mold so we had to take...

We recently had our wedding here and absolutely loved it. The property is quiet and quaint and perfect for what we had in mind. Our out of town guests seemed to enjoy their rooms and the staff was great. I highly recommend a stay whether it be a group event or just an overnight stay. Everything was absolutely perfect!

Stayed here recently to see if it could work for a family reunion. Came specifically to see the Villa- which is now for sale. Gee, would have been nice to know that before we drove 2.5 hours to see it. We spent the night in one of the mini-suites. It was clean. Had microwave and small fridge. Not enough towels...

If you are looking for an east coast feel, pastel cottages and all, then Pelican Bay is perfection... Old oaks line the winding lane that takes you down into the property with a darling cottage perfectly positioned on either side of lane. The abundance of speckled shade provides plenty of protection from the coastal sun, but not to much to...

The pastel colors of the cottages and big oak trees are so appealing when driving in. However, once you get your keys and pull up to the cottages you will notice how dusty these really are, including the rocking chairs. After sight seeing throughout the day we returned wanting to sit outside. We had to use three towels to wash...

Unfortunately this review is a little disturbing to me as the owner of Pelican Bay Resort. This customer says they stayed in May of 2016. I am not sure as to what transpired during their stay and being that it was 3 months ago it is a little hard to address the issues that were mentioned here. The porch lights...

Aesthetically, these cottages are cute, angled, and pastel. We did not find the parking to be an issue, nor did we have any noisy neighbors. There is, however, a nearby airport, and planes went overhead frequently during the day. The sofabed is your standard springy uncomfie pullout (we had to sweep bugs off but it IS the beach), and the...

Nice small cabins with kitchens, refrigerator, and living room with high ceilings and nice wood trim. Really good value. Nice and very clean. Same price as the chain hotels, but roomier and drive up to the door. Beds are a bit on the soft side, but good. Most importantly, good A/C!

the cottages are really cute & cozy. with all the trees, it really keeps the place shaded and cool. the cottages are quite close to each other & their is not much room to park... The picture of the pier is misleading, we were able to walk thru the garage to get there but on the way back had to...
