Wake up to the aroma of freshly brewed coffee, enjoy a scrumptious breakfast, and start your day feeling pampered and rejuvenated. 

Here is a list of Bed and Breakfast establishments in downtown Edenton where you can celebrate Valentine’s Day with your special someone. 

1. Captain’s Quarters Inn

This eight-room historic bed and breakfast has been recently refreshed to enhance its historic charm and to modernize its conveniences. 

As a proud member of The Edenton Collection it is managed by The Carolina Experience, a luxury brand of short-term rentals and upscale properties from the Carolina mountains to the coast. 

Guests can expect only the best accommodations and comforts when staying at Captain’s Quarters Inn, including luxury linens, free wi-fi, smart tvs, ensuite bathrooms, and complimentary parking.

All guests can enjoy the expansive sitting porch and outdoor fire table while sipping a glass of wine or a favorite beverage. 

And, of course, a complimentary, homemade breakfast is served daily by the on-site Innkeeper, who can also provide recommendations for things to do while you’re in Edenton!

2.  Granville Queen Inn

Next door to Captain’s Quarters Inn sits the majestic Granville Queen Inn, another premier property offered by The Carolina Experience. 

Guests can expect all of the upgrades and modernizations typical with properties offered by The Carolina Experience, yet walking through the Granville’s grand front entrance is like stepping back in time.

This stately, 1907 Neo-Classical Revival home features a two-story portico, paired Tuscan columns, and a majestic yet inviting wrap-around porch surrounded by expansive gardens. 

The Granville Queen Inn has been welcoming guests since 1989, when this private mansion was first converted into a bed and breakfast. Each unique guest room offers a different feel and a special touch. You may find a grand European queen bed, an antique wardrobe, a private fireplace, or a secluded reading nook. 

In the morning, enjoy a scrumptious breakfast on the lovely sun porch or at an elegant dining table inside.  Then, take advantage of the Granville’s close proximity to downtown Edenton and the waterfront to enjoy the day exploring. 

During the entire month of February, both The Granville Queen Inn and Captain’s Quarters Inn are offering a Valentine’s Day special which includes a king room, chocolate covered strawberries, and a floral arrangement in your room. Just mention the Valentine’s Day special when booking!

3.  Inner Banks Inn

Set on almost three acres of private property in Edenton’s historic district, Inner Banks Inn is within walking distance to the waterfront and very near to Edenton’s State Historic Site Visitor’s Center and Edenton’s Farmers Market. 

This property has four beautifully restored c.1802-1915 homes, each fit with inviting rooms and suites inspired by significant figures from Edenton’s history. 

You can choose between staying in a Southern Victorian mansion, a Coastal Carolina cottage, a charming Pack House barn, or a Greek Revival house known as the oldest original house on Broad Street. 

Well-known for their award-winning, three-course breakfast at the on-site restaurant, The Table, this inn also offers guest kitchens for those wanting to whip up a romantic Valentine’s Day spread. 

Guests at Inner Banks Inn can take advantage of pet-friendly rooms, the ambiance of the outdoor courtyard, and Mulberry Hill Country Club privileges.

This Valentine’s Day, Inner Banks Inn is offering a “Stay & Dine Getaway” package which includes a king room for one night, chilled prosecco at check-in, a 5-course dinner at The Table, and breakfast the next morning. The Inn also offers a variety of add-on luxuries including chocolate-covered strawberries, roses, and in-house massages for two.
