What a Gem!

We spent a night here and will definitely return whenever we are in this area of NC! The Inn is beautifully decorated with antiques; is very clean and fresh (they have a 100 rating....which we know is Very hard to get!!); had information about the area available, and had coffee, tea, water and snacks available. Our suite was beautiful and had an extremely comfortable bed. The highlight of our visit was the wonderfully delicious 3 course breakfast we were served the next morning....the presentation was beautiful and we felt it was fit for a very high end restaurant!! We found this Inn to be a wonderful place to stay, especially because it is within about 1/2 hour from Edenton, which is a fun place to explore, and is priced lower than the B&Bs we looked at in Edenton. We plan to return to Edenton to explore it more fully sometime in the future and we definitely plan to stay at this Inn again when we do!

Historical house with fabulous food!

An ideal base for exploring the history of the area. We began our days with a marvelous 3 course breakfast in the elegant dining room enlivened by congenial conversation with our host. We rested peacefully in our splendidly furnished historical room with all amenities.

Our stay at this marvelous B&B was outstanding. All aspects of this site was beyond expectations. This jewel in NC is in a quiet town that has much history to explore. The room was well appointed with period furniture. The bed was very comfortable, bathroom was big and the whole suite was very relaxing. The three course breakfast was a gourmet's delight. The owner was very knowledgeable about the area and guided to historical sites.

Great B&B, Great Hosts, Great Breakfast

This was my first stay at The Inn at Gray's Landing, although I had a good idea of what to expect, as I had a colleague who stayed on multiple occasions and had rave reviews of the experience. The room and amenities were comfortable and superb. The breakfast was phenomenal, and the French toast was the best I had ever experienced! Lynette and Jock were excellent hosts and an absolute delight to meet and greet with during my stay. And if you are fortunate to visit on a Thursday evening, the "Back Porch" offers a comfortable setting to relax and mingle with other guest and locals. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Our Annual Getaway

We discovered this beautiful place for our honeymoon 3 years ago and come twice a year now, on our anniversary and at Christmas to see the beautiful decorations. Lynette is a wonderful hostess and charming lady and the food is to die for! I highly recommend Gray's Landing.

A Delightful Find

We stayed in the George Washington Capehart Suite which was roomy, beautifully furnished with period furniture, clean and very comfortable. Coffee and snacks were available just outside our room throughout the day and night. We were most impressed with the gracious hospitality of our host and hostess. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to share information about the area and local restaurants. Jock's service during the delicious 3-course breakfasts that Lynette prepared made us feel as though we were in a 5 star restaurant. The breakfasts were ample, beautifully presented on the plate. and quite delicious. The two days we spent at the inn were a highlight of our trip to the South and we are looking forward to a return trip to the inn!

Great Experience!

Great Historic Inn!

It was my first time to stay in a bed and breakfast inn - the Inn at Gray's Landing in Windsor, North Carolina. I was pleasantly amazed to find the historical value of the 1790 inn preserved, while offering convenient amenities in the green suite. The breakfast and the dinner - ordered on request - was healthy, tasteful, and delicious, and served in fine dining style at the main room with an great ambiance. Great for intimate occasions and group functions. Outside the inn, Christmas lights adorned the B&B. The inn keepers, Lynette Mallery and Jock Scarsborough, were excellent hosts who made a great job at running the inn while relatively new in the industry. All the best to Lynette and Jock, and thank you for a great stay at the Inn at Gray's Landing. It was truly worth the visit. - Marcia Samson, Philippines

Cozy Yet Elegant

4.6 on December 21, 2010

Marcia and I had been wanting to visit Ms Lynette in her new place, The Inn at Gray's Landing, for some time and we were so excited that we finally did. We were very happy to get together with her and Mr Eric. Even though I had to travel practically about 10hrs going there and 12hrs coming back because of the circuitous plane route and airport shuttle, it was well worth it. I was pleasantly surprised to see Ms Lynette so busy and always on her toes in the kitchen, very much unlike the professional staff I knew and worked with in an international organization in Manila. I admire her transition from an "office lady" to an innkeeper. Serving her clients sumptuous meals that are so attractively and delicately prepared, she seems unmindful of the tremendous amount of work involved in it, and actually thrives and enjoys doing all these. The Inn at Gray's Landing is such a cozy and yet elegant place to visit and I would highly recommend it to friends.
