What a beautiful inn! Staying at the Inn on Pamlico Sound for a business trip was a relaxing place from which to do my job. The room had everything I needed to both work and enjoy the surroundings. The staff was incredibly helpful and their communication by texting was on point to secure reservations for breakfast, dinner, etc. While not there to enjoy many amenities they offer, (bikes, paddleboards, firepits, pool, etc) I did enjoy a walk out on their dock to take in the peaceful sound view. The full breakfast was delicious with specials each day. I will return for a stay with my husband to take advantage of this incredibly relaxing and peaceful Inn.

Check in could be 2-3 pm instead of 4pm. We felt like we just wasted time before check-in. I did call to try to arrange for an earlier check in but I was never called back. Otherwise the staff was excellent.

We had an awesome experience here. My first time to the outer banks. Great room with fantastic views and sunsets. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of. Every employee was extremely pleasant and efficient. Wonderful dinner with fantastic acoustic entertainment. A wedding was taking place but never interfered with our stay. Will definitely be coming back. Couldn’t think of staying anywhere else in Buxton. Thank you for all your hospitality. And special thanks to Justin our waiter!. Totally professional as well as rest of staff.

The value of this room much exceeded what we paid. We stayed in the Primrose room which has a breathtaking view of the water. The restaurants dinner and free breakfast was so delicious, definitely make a reservation for dinner! Not to mention free kayaks and bikes to use at your leisure! So glad we found this hidden gem!
