Main House Rooms

The Heart of the "Harbor of Hospitality"
Elizabeth City, North Carolina

The Culpepper Inn is a bed and breakfast on the North Carolina coast, nestled in the northeastern coastal plain.  It is just blocks from the Albemarle Sound and a one-hour drive from Norfolk International Airport.  The location of the Inn makes it a great choice for lodging when you travel to the Outer Banks.

The Inn is surrounded by lush lawns, shrubs, and trees and is housed in a 1930's brick Georgian Revival style manor house built by William and Alice Culpepper. On the grounds, you will find a large in-ground swimming pool, a screened porch to accent outdoor activities, and quiet areas to relax and enjoy the grounds.

The Inn is cozy with fine furnishings, oriental rugs, original artwork, luxurious linens, a stunning Cristofori player baby grand piano gracing the living room, and Waterford Crystal chandeliers adorning the dining room and foyer. There are four luxurious bedrooms in the Main House and one master suite above the Carriage House, complete with authentic soaking tubs and showers.
