This is our second stay at the Pelican Inn and I've never felt I was staying at a bed and breakfast... I've always felt like a personal guest of Corinne's. What I've always dreamed a southern beach vacation was meant to be.

family vacation

Our stay at Pawley's Inn was great. The breakfasts and early dinners were absolutely delicious and all homemade. For real homemade. like warm biscuits and grits homemade. We usually went to the beach between breakfast and dinner. There was a lot of time to chat with your family which was nice. I don't get to see them very much and it is nice to be able to talk with them at length. This was with 10+ kids running around who kept themselves busy. It was a little pricey for one person but well worth it if you have two or more and especially for families. Two meals are provided. Rooms are clean and often have more than one bed for more than one occupant per room. overall the stay was very relaxing and recharging. It was great to get away from the hustle and bustle of real life and just rock on the porch. we are all planning on going back.

Another great stay at the Pelican Inn

Third summer in a row did not disappoint. We love the Pelican Inn!

Wonderful stay, wonderful host, taste of yesterday

The host, Corinne and her husband have rescued and updated the Inn with a love born of knowing the Inn as a child, an adult, and as a couple. They have done needed updates without altering the charm and historical feel of the Inn. Corrine exhibits great joy in preparing the meals (we were treated to both breakfast and lunch) and her enthusiasm produces wonderful meals that are well beyond the expected B&B fare. The Inn is in the Pawleys Island Tradition and should not be confused with a modern, high tech, spa like property. Rather, one is transported back to a simpler time facilitated by the Inn, the grounds, the marsh dock, the beach and of course, the host. It is a refuge where you will find rest, comfort, and warm memories.

The Pelican Inn gets better and better

The traditions of low-country, relaxation, and slower pace of life is fulfilled once again by a few days at The Pelican Inn. It's comfortable, not ritzy, but everything just comes together to provide the ultimate get away from a hectic everyday world. It's just great and the meals are fantastic!!!

Amazing weekend getaway!

An incredible stress free weekend. Wonderful food, comfortable accommodations and hosts who make your relaxation their priority. Corinne and Bruce Taylor love running the Inn, and that translates to a wonderful visit for their guests.

B&B with meals I'll never forget

I booked the inn for our summer family reunion. Families can be funny, and personalities range from curmudgeon to chronically happy. Every member of the family, including me, is still raving about our time at the Pelican Inn. All agree it was their favorite vacation...and we've been doing this 26 years. Having access to both beach and marsh plus gorgeous rooms, spacious porches, ancient live oaks and plenty of shady places ensured that everyone found their "happy place." People who like to keep busy enjoyed all the nearby sites in Pawley's area. People who just wanted to catch up on sleep found plenty of cozy hammocks. And those who needed to work enjoyed using wi-fi on the porches with gorgeous views and nice breeze. The best part of our stay, however, was Corinne's cooking. Breakfast and lunch every day---and each better than the one before. By the end of the week we were lining up on the porch like Pavlovian dogs waiting for the dinner bell to ring. I would highly recommend the Pelican Inn to anyone, in fact I already have! And I can't wait to revisit.

Awesome and Historical

My wife and I had a great time for a 10th Wedding Anniversary trip. Corinne is a fantastic host and was helpful in all questions we had, she made us feel right at home. The food was great and the beach was beautiful. We hope to come back.
