A beautiful place to gather with friends. We enjoyed the happy hour on Friday and met one of the artists from Washington. Virginia made 3 wonderful breakfasts. I would love to go back someday!

We picked Washington NC for a stopover because it is the closest town offering full travelers services to the Swan Quarter ferry about 60 miles to the east. We are only sorry that we didn't allow more time to visit the Washington NC area and spend more time at Pamlico House.

We are experienced hands at visiting B&B's. Pamilco House ranks with one of the best. From room decor to housekeeping to breakfast offering, the property excels.

The owner, Virginia, was most accommodating by serving breakfast earlier than normal so we could make a 10am ferry and by providing a winning personality and surprise amenities.

Pamlico House has my unqualified recommendation.

On our 65th wedding anniversary trip we stayed at Pamlico House B&B. Having been there several times in the 1980s we were delighted to find the beauty and comfort continues to be top notch !
Virginia, the owner- operator of the B&B, has shown exquisite taste in the decoration. Her efferescent personality enlivens her relationship with her guests. Interaction among the guests at the gourmet breakfast added to the very positive experence.

We stumbled on this by accident after the B&B in nearby Bath where we had planned to stay was closed. Virginia is a delightful host who is trying hard to make this a first class B&B experience. She hosts regular get-togethers with neighbours to which guests are invited, and has opened a small wine store adjacent to the B&B. Our room was large, clean and comfortable (we especially loved the ironed sheets!) and the breakfast was excellent. Highly recommended.

We were spending a couple of days in Washington NC in early March and needed a place to stay. When we inquired about lodging, a friend recommended the Pamlico B&B. Virginia was a charming host and an excellent cook! The rooms were spacious, even for 3 people, and had a very homey and elegant feel to them. Our only regret was that we did not spend any "down time" at the Pamlico. This is southern hospitality at its best. We highly recommend staying here for anyone who wants a true B&B experience.

Thank you Virginia and Lacey!

If you are travelling to the north-eastern part of North Carolina, or are travelling through the area, this is the must stay for those looking for a warm welcome of hospitality, history, and the uniqueness of the area.
My wife and I spent our anniversary weekend there and were entertained by Virginia and her pooch Lacy. We were treated as members of the family coming home for the weekend before we walked up the steps. The rooms were extremely comfortable, classy, and a place to relax after touring.
And don't her let her smile fool you, Virginia was an amazing cook that made me smile with every bite of her french toast and blueberry pancakes. If you are in the area, stop in, stay the night, and say hi to Virgnia for us.

Room Tip: Although I did not get a look at all the rooms, the Beaufort room was amazing, had a great view, and...

We enjoyed two lovely nights at the Pamlico House while in town for a family wedding. Our room was great and the breakfasts were a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds! The innkeeper made us feel right at home. I would be quite happy to make a return trip.
