A little more on what's in store

As summer nears we have received several inquiries regarding availability and our plans for the Inn.  We are running it as a bed and breakfast, and aim to continue the charming, hospitable tradition of the Pelican Inn that so many families, including our own, fell in love with many years ago. We do have availability a few weeks this summer and would love to accommodate you—just send us a note: pawleyspelican@gmail.com.

Updated (5/26): currently, our first availabilities are in August

The Taylor family will constitute the staff, including my two younger sisters, Emma and Caroline, who couldn’t dream of a better summer job. Breakfast and midday dinner will be served each day to our guests. Corinne (Mama Taylor) may be modest about the simple Southern cooking we will serve--she told the Coastal Observer it was “nothing special”--but we in her family look forward to her cooking every day. She even spent several months meticulously perfecting her biscuit recipe in preparation for running the Inn’s kitchen, and we were lucky enough to be her guinea pigs.

We’d love to hear from past guests of the Pelican, as well as new friends. Please email us with any feedback or questions.

Looking forward to meeting you!

  1. dream come true - thank you (again)!

  2. It is so wonderful that such a lovely family has decided to preserve the delightfully enchanting Pelican Inn. My parents and grandparents live in Pawley’s and the Island just wouldn’t be the same without the charming Inn.

    Good luck and have a fantastic summer!

  3. We spent a wonderful long weekend recently at the Pelican Inn. It was relaxing and the food excellent, and the inn itself has a distinctive character, with its comfortable living room, wide porches, and beautiful decor. The setting between ocean and marsh is ideal; the dock is a great place to spend a late afternoon. We look forward to returning.
