Lovely room..stayed in The Dogwood room...nicely appointed. We liked the screened in balcony that overlooked the Inter Coastal Waterway. Breakfasts were delicious with a delicious warm entree daily. A pristine beach is a block away for miles of beach walking. Great area to bike as well. The owners were most helpful,giving us great suggestions for dinner.

Thank you for your kind review. It means so much when our guests take the time to comment on their stay with us. You pointed out some of my very favorite things: the screened porch and the beautiful beaches where you walked. I hope that you will plan to visit us again in the near future.

We stayed four nights here in late October. It was one of my favorite inns of all time, and we stay in a lot of B & B's. What makes this one so great is that it was custom built just for this purpose, so none of the rooms have teeny bathrooms or nonexistent closets! All the details were planned... More

Our family had a large gathering of the assorted clans over a weekend, with some in rented houses and other (like us) scattered elsewhere.

Great location! Very clean room and friendly staff. We came after Hurricane Matthew so there was some minor damage to our porch (screens needed replacing), but room was large and comfortable. Very nice breakfast served at 8:15 and coffee maker in the room is great for early risers.

We stayed at the Inn mid-week and had such a relaxing visit. This is our second time staying at the Inn and plan to stay there again. The staff is very accommodating and the rooms are very comfortable. The view of the marsh and the Intercoastal Waterway is very serene as well. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

We loved our stay here, all of the staff members that we met were some of the nicest and most genuine people I've met in the hospitality industry. They take great pride in their establishment. The room was excellent, breakfast always had something new and delicious each day and Sunset Beach itself is just fantastic. We will definitely return here.

We had a summer home at Sunset Beach for many years, but downsized last year and sold it. This was my first trip back, and it is still such a special place. Sunset Beach is laid-back and unpretentious, but classy. That description fits the Sunset Inn also, as it is just the kind of place that makes you feel immediately... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sunset Inn opened its doors to the beauty of the saltwater marsh and island life in June 2000. The honey-colored wood floors in the entrance and living area shine softly in the light that filters through the large windows. The Inn is not your typical B&B; it is larger with 14 rooms but still has that cozy atmosphere that makes folks feel right at home. An expanded continental breakfast is served each morning buffet style. You may choose to have your morning meal in the breakfast room or in the privacy of your own room. Each room has a different theme and decor with a king-size bed, wet bar, refrigerator, love seat and private screened porch with rockers. The four grand rooms each have a jetted tub plus a larger corner porch with rockers & porch swings, robes and IPod docks. Come experience the quiet comfort for yourself. ... more   less
