In the seaside town of Pawleys Island, vacations aren't meant for bright lights, big crowds and cookie-cutter hotels. The scenic strip of cypress-sided beach homes offers a more relaxing and tranquil retreat, and the Sea View Inn provides an affordable and comfortable place to enjoy the true Pawleys Island experience.
Located amid a single row of beach homes along the four-mile stretch of barrier island, the Sea View Inn gives guests a comfortable and hospitable place to kick back and enjoy the slow pace of life. Sit on the porch overlooking the lovely Atlantic Ocean to the east and the tidal salt marshes to the west that separate the island from the mainland. Built in the 1930s, this beautiful structure features 20 private guest rooms and lots of common areas that are decorated with the island's "arrogantly shabby" motto in mind.
The spacious dining area greets you with three homemade meals a day, from a hearty country breakfast to an authentic Southern dinner, as you mix and mingle with fellow guests and hosts. Perfect for family gatherings, weddings and other special occasions, you and your party will feel right at home in the lap of Lowcountry luxury.
Repeat guests return year after year in search of the ideal summer getaway, and couples come back to relive their romantic escapes to the island over the years. The Sea View Inn has become a family tradition for those who enjoy the simple things in life.
Kick back with a book in a rocking chair and watch the waves roll in, drop crab traps off the private pier while you cast a line at high tide, or visit the many restaurants and shops of the mainland. If you are up for exploring, check out nearby attractions like Hobcaw Barony, Hopsewee Plantation, Brookgreen Gardens, Myrtle Beach and the port city of Georgetown. Then come back to the inn for a quiet evening in a lovely setting. At the Sea View Inn, you are more than a guest; you are part of the family.
