“Chais and homemade cookies!”
Reviewed April 14, 2006

The obvious merits were the incredible breakfasts, attention to a comfortable stay with a PC available 24/7 and a fabulous setting. Being with kids and able to view a film of our selection in their movie theatre with popcorn, candy and pop was great. Also we played board games into the late evening in the dining room and had the best time all the while pouring chais and wolfing down homemade cookies. The host and hostess, Steve and Laura, have my highest admiration. They are committed to the guests who stay with them and are lively, caring and can carry on an in depth conversation on just about anything! I am ONLY sorry that I live on the West Coast!

The Nelson's certainly have the gift of hospitality! They anticipate your every need. The amenities are unbelievable. We were there in the "off season" but everything was "on" in respect to the scrumptious food, accommodations, location, views and gracious hosts. We had a truly delightful experience. We have traveled all over the USA and have stayed at many B&B's. We have added the Inn on Pamlico Sound to our list of best B&B's in the USA!!

The last two summers we traveled to the shores of the Outer Banks and vacationed at The Inn on Pamlico Sound to relax our weary bodies, refresh our spirits, and rekindle our romance.
During our stay, the inn’s amenities, gourmet breakfasts and close proximity to the water provided us with a beautiful place to unwind away from our hectic lives. Its comfortable bed and linens invited restful sleep each night, while every morning the scents and sounds of Pamlico Sound gently awakened us. Warmed by the morning sun, we dined on the deck with specialty coffees, numerous juice options, fresh fruit, and a better-than-any-dessert entrée. The experience was truly peaceful.
Area activities and attractions provided varied opportunities to revive and rejuvenate. Whether the water beckoned the sports-enthusiast to grab a board, the fisherman to pick up his pole, or the sunbather to tickle her toes in the surf, the inn’s staff offered its expertise and resources. The staff was committed to helping us make the most of our time on the island.
The inn provided the perfect location to enjoy being a couple. Beach walks, sunset views from the inn’s decks, and luxurious guest rooms helped us to celebrate our anniversary.
The Inn on Pamlico Sound was an ideal spot to recharge our internal batteries and renew our commitment to each other.

This was the best Bed and Breakfast I have ever stayed at. Everyone was so friendly and the atmosphere was great. The breakfast that they serve is delicious. I would recommend this location to anyone who is wanting to travel down to the outer banks area.

Excerpt from our personal email to the owners, Laura and Steve, of 'The Inn on Pamlico Sound':

"Once again I would like to tell you both that we had a splendid time at your B&B. We will definitely be recommending it to friends if they make plans to head out to the Outer Banks. Again, thank you for your hospitality.

I can't think of any suggestions to add! In fact, I believe that your B&B had the most to offer compared to all of the other B&Bs we've stayed at... internationally! The room we had was gorgeous and it wasn't even a king size room. The views were spectacular, especially the sunsets. There was plenty of seating in and around the B&B where one could relax and take in the scenery. You had bicycles and kayak's available! Your breakfasts were delicious... my wife can attest to the non-vegetarian selections (too bad I wasn't eating meat or dairy products), but the selection of fruits and the abundance of them was great as well. And you made sodas, snacks, tea, and coffee available at no extra charge. Besides all of that, you were very friendly.

We truly enjoyed our stay."

Attached are photos of the sunset... from our room!

My wife and I happened across the Inn on Pamlico Sound while researching places to stay during a trip to the Outer Banks. What we read and what was communicated to us when we made our reservation sounded great, but when we arrived, we were quite surprised by how wonderful this place was. We received a warm reception and were quickly introduced to all of the comforts that the inn had to offer. Our room was beautifully deocrated and had a breathtaking view of the sound. Breakfast was excellent and so were the conversations that we had with other happy guests. Thanks for everything, Steve and Laura. We will definitley be back!

This getaway in the Outer Banks is a treasure. The breakfasts and accomodations are superb. The innkeepers spoil you like guests, but treat you like dear friends. The amenities add that extra touch - gourmet coffees, homebaked goodies in the afternoon, the small private theater with a well-stock DVD library, bikes, kayaks, and a beautiful waterfront view of the sound. God has blessed Laura and Steve, and they in turn bless their guests.
