A Weekend at The Pond House Inn

4.8 on October 09, 2013

We had a wonderful weekend at The Pond House Inn - an elegant yet unpretentious Inn. The property is gorgeous - with a number of ponds and places to sit and relax as well as a view of the sound.You can even dock your boat at the Inn dock and enjoy time at the Inn. Martha is a delightful Innkeeper who is smart, fun and knowledgeable. The Inn itself has lovely common rooms and our room was well appointed with a terrific view. The Inn sits in a quiet neighborhood and is the only Inn on the water. Perfect weekend - we look forward to visiting again.


The Pond House Inn...The Best!

As we approached the door of the inn it was a nice surprise to see the sign welcoming us. Martha is a warm and gracious hostess. The bedding and linens are the best and so comfortable. The fireplace in the room is a warm touch in cold weather. Martha cooks the best breakfast with a variety of foods, more than could be imagined. Martha sets the standard for how a bed and breakfast should be. When we have the opportunity, we will be back to the Pond House Inn. Thank you Martha


I Want to stay Forever!!

We arrived mid-afternoon greeted by a welcome note to come on in, key in room door. Quickly, upon my calling "hello" Martha appeared and assisted us in getting the lift and helping my disabled partner upstairs. She is warm, welcoming, available (but never "in your face"). The room was lovely, beautiful linen and enough pillows to share. Views of the water available from all rooms, it was so nice to rest in bed and look out. I was worn out from my previous week and wanted a serene surrounding to re-energize. This was perfect. Although we only booked for a night, I had to ask for a second night because I really never wanted to leave, ever. Breakfast served in nicely appointed dining room. Food tasty, fresh fruit, available even when not requested when submitting menu request the night before. The grounds are stupendous. Beautiful little hidden spots to sit and contemplate, read, or nap. Walk the grounds, or across the road along the river, or around the neighborhood. Boat dock available. We have nothing but good things to say about our stay, and look forward to another visit.


Great Winter Getaway!

Lovely accommodations, delicious breakfast, beautiful water views of the river. The innkeeper was the perfect blend of hospitality and yet respectful of our need for privacy. It's only been a month and I am scanning my very busy schedule to see when I can go back. I love Elizabeth City.


Perfect!

Big Mistake

2.0 on June 22, 2012

Lesson #1, never book a multi-night stay in a B&B without first visiting it. Based only on the reviews on these pages (big mistake), I booked a three-night stay at the Pond House Inn to celebrate our anniversary. Here's what we encountered: The empty main lobby had a musty, damp odor and the grounds around the Inn were un-kept. The stone steps to the "Family Room" (actually a low, converted attic over the garage) are a challenge to even the most able if you are hauling luggage. The window-style air conditioner had been left off and the room was hot and musty smelling, so we turned it on and hoped it would reduce the odor. It did not. Proprietor says it's the cypress paneling. Maybe. My wife has fibromyalgia and is sensitive to odors, particularly those of mold and mildew, and the smell of this room was a challenge for her. She had a headache, burning eyes and throat, and trouble sleeping. Use caution at breakfast, the kitchen of the Inn had no clean surface to be seen. Papers, newspapers, dirty dishes, towels and "stuff" were pilled everywhere, even around the stove area. My cheese omelet appeared to have been made from Egg-beaters, or might possibly have been microwaved - I couldn't tell, but it arrived without the English muffin and grits I had also ordered - they arrived later in "separate courses." My wife's waffle was tasty, but covered with pecans straight from the freezer, and her "butter-fried eggs" were rubbery and over-cooked. Our announcement we would be leaving early due to the aforementioned room odor problems and my wife’s difficulties was met by the announcement that we would still be charged the three-night fee for our single night stay. We were forced to split the difference of the two unused nights. My advice: if you're looking for look a nice B&B experience, look elsewhere.

Innkeeper Response
We are sorry to hear that this guest has reported disappointment with our breakfast and our rooms. We enjoy many very complimentary reviews of our breakfast and of our rooms. Unfortunately, even a lovely weekend at a romantic inn cannot heal a broken relationship. No complaints were made about their breakfast at the time; they simply said they did not like the cypress paneling in their room. We offered them a different room, but they declined that offer and others. It became clear that they had deeper problems than we could address, and that had nothing to do with our inn. We complied with their request and refunded one night. We wish them well.

The house and grounds are beautiful, relaxing and quiet with a water view. Breakfast was plentiful and superb. Good coffee and a Great hostess. This was a wonderful home base for us to explore the Outer Banks. Highly Recommended!
