Hatteras Island

While there is much to do on Hatteras Island, we counsel guests that the less of an agenda you start with, the more enjoyable your visit will be. Time moves differently here. “Let’s wander and explore” is often the best way to enjoy our island and culture.

The Inn is located in the village of Buxton, on Hatteras Island, in the midst of the natural beauty of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Just a few minutes’ drive is the Cape Hatteras lighthouse, the tallest brick lighthouse in the United States. Cape Point, where the Labrador Current meets the Gulf Stream is a short stroll from the lighthouse. Stop by the docks in the charming fishing hamlet of Hatteras Village around 4:00 in the afternoon to see charter boats bring in the day’s catch. Take a short ferry ride to Ocracoke Island, home of Blackbeard the Pirate. Walk the beaches of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Search for shells along our 70 miles of beautiful shoreline and watch dolphins frolic in the surf. Take a short ride to Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge. Wander the beautiful trails among an amazing diversity of wildlife. Visit the numerous small galleries featuring the works of our local artists and artisans.

At the Inn

We tell our guests that they need to bring themselves and what they plan to wear. We provide most everything else. Leave your beach chairs and towels at home; we have plenty for your use as you enjoy the pristine beaches of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Go for a leisurely paddle in the kayaks or on the stand up paddle boards we provide for guests, or tour the island on our complimentary bicycles. Watch a glorious sunset over the waters of the Pamlico Sound with a glass of wine in hand, from your room or while sitting in the Adirondack chairs. Take advantage of our soundfront location, and windsurf or kiteboard right from our dock or off Sunset Point.

Start your day with our complimentary gourmet breakfast rated as “best on the Outer Banks” by National Geographic Traveler.¬† The Inn’s signature Restaurant, Cafe Pamlico is open all year and hosts live music 2-3 nights each week. See the live music lineup for this season, and stay tuned to our facebook for new information.
