This was our first visit to the OBX, we came for 4 nights. Nancy (innkeeper) provides a delightful setting - well appointed room and inn, close to village and beach. Nancy's hospitality and breakfasts were top notch. We WILL definitely come back again.

"Any room would be suitable."
"We stayed in the "Beach House" room, great queen size mattress and sweet private deck area."
"All rooms are similar. All have balconies, although some are sunnier than others. You can ask for a room that has either more or less sun cover on the balcony."
"We faced a private,quiet area in back...all rooms are on the elevated 1st fl...public room /breakfast room & owner suite all on upper level..so no spectacular views from rooms.."
