While passing through the area my husband and I needed a place to stay and I booked through Expedia. . I tried calling to confirm reservations and to see if we could check in earlier, but had to leave a message. It was mid afternoon and we went in person to again make that attempt. Quite frankly, wasn't even sure...

It is always a good idea to call the hotel to confirm a reservation made through a reservation service, especially if an early check-in or special accommodations are necessary. We do our best to accommodate early arrivals, and if we are asked for an early check-in we will always try to meet those needs. This prospective guest did not request...

I have never had to write a review on a place and it is unfortunate that I felt i had to for this B&B. I want to begin with saying that this place is a beautiful place for an outdoor event. Our first experience with Mrs. Martha was pleasant and she was very helpful in supplying us with information on...

Our response to an earlier review noted some of the problems with this wedding, including the threat that the groom would have "150 people give bad reviews" when we told him he could not plug his travel trailer into our electrical grid until the wedding and reception were over because it would overload the system. This reviewer was part of...

My wife and I have visited a good number of historical B&Bs, but the Pond House Inn is a unique place that we feel lucky to have visited. The house overlooks a wide expanse of the Pasquotank River for a gorgeous view. But it is the grounds--a never-ending work in progress--that make the location really special. Through some unimaginable effort,...

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...

Most of our guests are absolutely lovely. Sometimes we get one that causes us to recall that old adage, "All of our guests make us happy, some when they come and some when they leave." This gentleman, who prefers to call himself "Colonel," come knowing Hurricane Matthew was coming in. We were busy preparing for the storm, and I didn't...

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.

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.

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.
