  1. My husband and I stayed two nights at the Inner Banks Inn when we came from Ontario, Canada to attend the Pilgrimage of Homes, in Edenton, April 2019. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Inn. The staff could not have been more welcoming, friendly, cheerful, and attentive. Our large room was bright, clean and comfortable. Breakfasts were amazing and dinners – delicious at The Table.

    • That’s awesome, Catherine. Glad you had a good time there! Thanks for sharing your experience with us:)

  2. Sounds like a nice place to stay. I will have to plan a trip to stay when it gets a little warmer. Thank you for the information! 😊
