Welcome to Beaufort NC’s best--the iconic
Built in 1985, Inlet Inn continues the hundred-year tradition of its original 19th century namesake, providing visitors charming waterfront accommodations and friendly hospitality. Inlet Inn offers a quiet, comfortable respite—hotel privacy with bed and breakfast amenities, charm, and service. Whether you are planning to walk the paths of infamous 18th century pirates, or just dreaming of a relaxed waterfront porch getaway, Inlet Inn is your home port.
For over three decades Inlet Inn has been the top choice of many repeat guests who’ve found it to be the perfect place to create their own memorable experiences. Inlet Inn has 36 large, comfortable rooms, many with their own private waterfront porch and rocking chairs. Several first-floor rooms even have working fireplaces, perfect for cool, romantic evenings. All rooms are furnished with original Lexington NC manufactured Link-Taylor pine furniture—now considered antiques and prized collectibles. Inlet Inn offers a fourth-floor Widow’s Walk Balcony and communal lounge. It also offers a third-floor hospitality lounge featuring a grand piano, ready to host an intimate event up to fifty guests. Find peace in our quiet courtyard garden. For those who’d like to snooze and cruise, Inlet Inn is only a few steps from sailing adventures and water taxi services to Shackleford Banks, Cape Lookout National Seashore and Lighthouse, and Carrot Island’s Rachel Carson Reserve—all offering half-day trips for an unforgettable experience with nature. But you don’t have to take a sailing adventure to experience the natural world—dolphins and wild horses are a familiar sight from Inlet Inn’s porches.
Inlet Inn’s waterfront location lies in the middle of the historic district, which one can experience by foot, bike, or golf cart. Mere steps from Inlet Inn you will find wonderful restaurants and shops, the North Carolina Maritime Museum and boat-building exhibit, a fascinating burying ground dating back to 1731, and the Beaufort Historic Site with its double-decker bus tours. Tree-lined streets featuring restored colonial homes thread the historic fabric of Beaufort. Retrace the footsteps of ancient mariners or Blackbeard’s legendary band of pirates. Whether from the comfort of your rocking chair, a cozy third-floor window seat, or Widow’s Walk Balcony, you will enjoy one of the best views on the East coast. When morning arrives, we'll deliver you a continental breakfast with Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee, toasted bagels, and hot muffins to get you started for your next adventure.
