I will never…ever…recommend this facility to anyone, nor, will I ever return to such an ill taken care of facility. Here is why. About two weeks prior to Memorial Day we made reservations over the phone with Ms. Johnson, the proprietor, for the 2nd to the 5th of September. I indicated we would arrive around 6 or 6:30 PM. During...

Beware!  Super rude!  My son had a wedding there 9/17/16.  She appeared friendly when we chose the venue, but when it came time for the venue, she absolutely fell apart. Wouldn't answer questions about how to reset a breakers (that kept blowing), turned vendors away when they were setting up the day before the wedding (including the tent setup!).  House...

It is difficult to respond positively to this review. We have done almost a hundred weddings over 15 years, but we have never had one as problematic as this one. The bride was beautiful and so was the wedding, but the groom's family was difficult. They showed up 4 hours earlier than they were told they could, encroaching upon the...

Martha hosts a wonderful stay. We visited on our Anniversary weekend on our way to the outer banks for a week. The home is amazing with all of it's history. Although there isn't much to the downtown area, we found an excellent casual gourmet restaurant for dinner located in an old store front building. We were treated to a fresh...

Our stay at the Pond House Inn was simply delightful! My husband surprised me with this gem of a treat. He is great with picking out wonderful beds & breakfasts and this was no exception. I was so excited driving up the winding driveway to see the picturesque stone landscaping & edging around the islands themselves. Resplendently landscaped It looked...

Beautiful, quiet home; plentiful breakfast and gracious hostess! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in the Goldenrod room at Pond House Inn. A most comfortable bed allowed me three nights' restful sleep. The river is just across the landscaped yard of the Inn offering serene views. I will definitely return another time!

Very nice place to stay. Very quiet and laid back. Beautiful views. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. The house keeper was very nice and welcoming. We took our 2 and 3 year old and just felt like we were home. Recommend staying here instead of hotel. We were able to sign up for breakfast time which was nice...

The grounds are very nice, the house is well kept, and the owners are great. Elizabeth City is a short drive away for dinner. Breakfast was very good. The house has a book and movie library. The Wi Fi coverage was very spotty, kept dropping out.

Hubby and I stayed there one night while we were touring the surrounding area. I had selected this B&B because of all the great reviews, and I agree with all the positive things that have been said. Martha is the perfect hostess, being there when we needed her while allowing us the privacy and one would expect. Upon arrival, Martha...

We stopped here for an evening since we were looking for a bed and breakfast to relax at. The Inn is very attractive and is beautifully decorated. Martha is a wonderful hostess and cooks a great breakfast. Our one negative is the town of Elizabeth City, were it is located. The town is old and not very attractive. We had...

We thank this guest for his nice comments, however, we do feel we are being viewed negatively because this guest did not like the town. Elizabeth City is a sweet little gem, but unfortunately, streets have been and are being closed temporarily for paving and replacement of sewer lines. That does cause some inconvenience and some restaurants did have to...

The weekend at Pond House Inn was a gift and we were not disappointed. The house is beautiful and Martha is an excellent host. Our room looked out over the beautiful garden and picturesque river.
