Fodor's Expert Review The Inn on Pamlico Sound

49684 NC 12, Buxton, North Carolina, 27920, USA Fodor's Choice

You'll feel like an honored houseguest in this casually elegant, full-service boutique hotel, with sweeping waterfront views, intuitive rather than intrusive service, and an indoor-outdoor fine-dining restaurant, Café Pamlico. Lounge by the pool or relax on an array of decks, balconies, and porches, all designed to maximize the sunset experience over the sound. Schedule an in-room spa treatment or kick up your heels by stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, fishing, or bicycling. There's a full-service bar as well and regularly scheduled live music.
