    Elegant venue with stunning natural surroundings.

    We could not be more thrilled with how perfectly our wedding day was at The Inn on Pamlico Sound. I am still coming down off the high of such a surreal and beautiful day! We had dinner there once and the experience was one we wanted to share with our family on our wedding day.

    The planning process was smooth with the No Stress. Gina is bubbly and energetic and a ton of fun to work with. She thinks of the things you would never think of and gets everything lined up so you simply get dressed and enjoy your day! But if you are like me and want to butt in at times, she is cool with that, too!

    Sunset point is breathtaking. It was a windy overcast day but cleared up just enough for the perfect ceremony. I’m swooning over the photos Daniel Pullen photography took. Kate captured us so perfectly.

    I highly recommend The Inn on Pamlico Sound if you have an intimate event like ours, or a larger event. They strive to make your wedding and your stay perfect and you get to meet and befriend some really amazing people in the process. We are guests for life!

    raves for Inn on Pamlico Sound & Cafe Pamlico - wedding catering!

    We would like to praise and recommend the Inn on Pamlico Sound & Cafe Pamlico for their food and catering services! They were fantastic in support of our daughter's wedding in Buxton on Thursday, August 15, 2019! Steve Nelson and company at the Inn/Cafe were really great!
    This was a destination wedding with the reception held at a private home in Buxton. (So, of course, arranging from a distance creates a bit of anxiety,.. and otherwise having to provide day care for my 88year old mom throughout,.. family/guest arrivals,.. the celebration events, weather etc etc). No need to worry though -- we were in good hands,.. everything was wonderful!!
    Steve introduced his event manager, Gina Williams. Gina and I connected several times to address all bride/groom interests. Gina and Seth, the chef, were very supportive and most accommodating in creating a desired menu that suited our headcount and budget. Gina assured the morning of the celebration that all was ready as planned,.. and it was! (They were nice enough to deliver and set up tables and chairs we had ordered, the night before to avoid wedding day conflict.) Food and plates and serving dishes were all in place as guests arrived. The celebration proceeded accordingly!
    The guests raved about the food throughout the festivities! The servers, Zach and Amber, made sure all entrees were fresh and available the entire time. There were ample servings of all and actually a lot of leftovers, which Zach and Amber prepared for overnight storage etc. Nothing but praise for the food and the services throughout the evening -- everything was great!
    Our compliments to the chef!
    Gina and team then followed-up the next day (as had been pre-arranged) to remove the tables and chairs, etc. All was wrapped up neatly and in timely fashion. I continued to receive complements regarding the food and service arrangements throughout the week. All was very positive.
    I applaud all! Steve and his team at The Inn on Pamlico Sound & Cafe Pamlico were excellent - thorough, friendly and professional!. As I explained to Gina, this was my first time as a "Father of the Bride" or securing a catering service for anything. They made it simple and wonderful (regardless setting it up from long-distance ),.. All nice and neat.
    Best wishes to Steve and all at the Inn and Cafe,.. continued success!

    Amazing, Easy and Memorable!

    Where do I begin? This place and this staff are amazing! We are a lesbian couple and we were a little hesitant when it came to picking a venue because let’s face it there aren’t a lot of laws to protect us from discrimination. Steve, Gina, Melissa, Natasha and Dallas made us feel so welcome and comfortable. Gina is magical and you can trust her to make your day as beautiful as you ever imagined. Melissa was so patient dealing with all of our family room changes and bookings. Natasha helped with our menu and drinks and OMG that crab Mac and cheese was phenomenal. Dallas has a smile that just lights up a room. He served us at our tasting and worked our rehearsal and reception. The Inn is lucky to have him. His personality and easy going attitude are everything! The rest of the staff from servers and bartenders to housekeepers were all great and welcoming. Our families booked every room at the Inn and Steve welcomed them all when they arrived. Our wedding weekend was full of fun from jet skiing and kayaking to beach days and drunk nights on the balcony it was amazing. After our wedding some of us even jumped in the pool. Steve said if you book the whole Inn you will have complete run of the place and we did. We made some great memories here and if your on the fence about where to get married stop looking and call the Inn. It’s the best decision we made when we started planning. I am not getting paid to write this review, it was just that great. I will admit we were a little nervous picking vendors that we never met especially the bakery for our cake. We didn’t get to do a cake tasting so I was concerned. But Gina said to trust her and I’m glad we did. We picked a half naked yellow cake with a raspberry filling and our guests are still talking about it. Our flowers were beautiful and our bouquets even survived the drive home two days after the wedding. Gina asked us to send her our wedding Pinterest boards so that she can get an idea of what we wanted and let me tell you our cake and flowers were almost exactly what we had on our boards. I don’t know what else to say but call them and book your wedding venue. I promise you won’t regret it. Most of our guests were asking us why we picked this place “in the middle of no where” and all of them were making plans to come back before they left. This place is a Gem and you can’t help but fall in love with it and the staff. My wife and I are grateful for the memories they helped us make and we will be back. ❤️
