The Inn provides complimentary full gourmet breakfast

and afternoon nibbles spotlighting local organic products and cuisine.

The Cotton Gin Inn is a historic yet modern and elegant Bed and Breakfast. The Inn sits on 6 acres surrounded by tall trees and gardens along with the historic brick Cotton Gin buildings and cottage in a beautiful country setting within the town of Edenton minutes from the waterfront.  It is located just off of Highway 17, and a popular stop on the way to the Outer Banks, and in close proximity to Norfolk, VA., and Raleigh, NC.  


The Cotton Gin Inn is perfect for guests who want to get away from the ordinary. Special events are offered to those seeking attention to detail in an upscale yet historic venue. Local organic cuisine is highlighted for overnight guest breakfasts. Over 30 Cooking Classes are offered. Supper Club dinners are served family-style featuring Southern cuisine with a modern twist.  Come and stay awhile and relax in this unique country setting. Play a game of croquet, and afterward sip sweet tea on the sweeping porch under the magnolia.

Covid Protocol

As a small inn with few rooms and space for guests to dine apart we meet CDC and State recommendations. Edenton is slowly transitioning precautions for your safety. Shops and restaurants are open and welcome your business. Historic sites and tours are all running. We are transitioning according to CDC recommendations for coffee, tea and snack service. Guests may request social distanced tables still as we transition.  Please come with good health, a mask if you have not been vaccinated, and good humor at this time. We hope to see you soon!
