Pelican Inn Information


Located on the "arrogantly shabby" Pawleys Island, the Pelican Inn is a charming bed and breakfast built in the 1840s. All guestrooms are air-conditioned, there is direct beach access, and a private dock over the salt marsh perfect for watching sunsets and throwing out crab traps. While the island is very quiet, there are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. The summer season brings sea turtle nests on the beach and there is ample opportunity for kayaking, paddle boards and exploring nature. This inn is made for old school family vacations.

Our guests are like family. Our small experienced staff is always on site to attend to your needs and you will see the same friendly faces year after year.
