We've been going to the OBX for over 25 years, but have always rented a home. This year we took a shortened trip for only 4 days, so decided to stay at the Inn. From the front of the building, the Inn look charming and quaint. Much to our surprise the Inn was more that we ever expected. Our room... More

My husband and I came here for our 10th wedding anniversary. When we were looking online for a place to go, my requirements were a jacuzzi in the room and the chance to see wild horses. I got both, plus more! Our room had a wonderful view of the sound, a private door to the deck, a gas fireplace, the... More

we stayed for 2 nights in mid summer for a wedding in Corolla. We have stayed there many times before on Valentine's Day. This was our first time in warm weather where we were able to take advantage of the pool. Nice room right by the pool, but only issue was the noise from people coming to use the dock/amenities....

Thank you for staying with us at the Inn. We were happy to have you as our guest and that the "pros" outweighed the "cons". Our rates are very competitive for the area especially considering the free breakfast, free bicycles and access to the amenities of the Corolla Light Resort.

We stayed at the Inn for our honeymoon and we could not have asked for better place to go. Everything from the courteous staff, the rooms, the delicious breakfast and the beautiful views made our trip well worth it. We will definitely be back! Thank you so much for such a memorable and fantastic stay.

That's what my wife said when we got there. Room was charming, bright, clean and nicely decorated. We had the "Keepers Watch" room on the water. Views were fantastic, sunsets were spectacular. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Jim at the front desk had excellent suggestions for diner. Strongly recommend it.
