We stayed only one night, but we really wanted to stayed more!! Everything was perfect, clean and beautiful, the only thing is that the mattress should be replace (at least, the one in our bedroom, but my parents didn't have the same problem). Delicious breakfast.

We have enjoyed FCI on numerous occasions, and always find it charming, comfortable, well cared for and staffed by friendly professionals. Historically interesting and located, FCI is pleasingly furnished and equipped. Breakfast was a tasty buffet

Spent the first weekend in October at the Colony Inn. It was my college roommate's daughters wedding. The Inn was lovely and so accommodating to all the guests! Thank you and we so enjoyed your library space! Breakfast awesome especially the homemade scones!

My husband and I just got back home after two nights at the Inn. This being our third stay at The First Colony definitely lived up to our expectations. We love to stay in the Rose Payne suite, on the top floor. It has an ocean view, and it's quite large. Checking in, Chris especially was so helpful and friendly... More

We like crazy runners and the Outer Banks Marathon is always a crazy, busy, fun time here on the island. We try to provide carb loaded breakfast foods and snacks for our marathoners and they always appreciate it. Thank you for your comments and we will see you next year. More

Turned up having not booked. Computer systems had crashed, not only did the staff find us a lovely double room they were trusting enough to just write our details down without being able to check bank cards etc. Adequate breakfast, lovely to sit outside or take a one minute walk to the beautiful beach.

My husband and I recently stayed at this bed and breakfast. FANTASTIC from the front desk to our room. The breakfast menu was not fancy but plentiful and delicious. The afternoon social was a great time to get acquainted with other visitors. The library was a great place to relax and play games, read, or pick up a DVD. Our... More
