Certificate of Excellence
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.

We stayed in the Scotch Bonnet Room. We loved our room and the view from the balcony. The breakfast served was excellent and offered a variety of choices. Our hostess was very accommodating and kind. We will be back.

Sunset cruises are still offered out of Calabash (appx. 10 miles). We also have a company that offers sunset kayak tours right here on the island. Yes, each room has its own private bathroom.

Do you offer vegetarian and gluten free options for guests?
If by vegetarian you mean "meat" free there are certainly enough choices to make a full meal at breakfast. If you are also a lacto/ovo free vegetarian your choices would be limited. I am not sure about gluten free options but I am sure the Inn manager, who shops for and prepares the breakfasts would be happy to answer your question.
