This quaint Bed and Breakfast was clean and has a fantastic location. Canda the front dest clerk was very nice and helpful. The rooms were tidy, clean, and comfortable. We will be back. The complementary breakfast was fresh and tasty.

Stayed only one night and wish we had more time. Room was #5. First floor corner with wrap around porch. Staff could not have been nicer. We arrive an hour after afternoon tea, but they found a bottle of wine and two glasses to celebrate our arrival in Nags Head. This is a unique old Inn that was moved from... More

I personally have not been fond of bed and breakfasts. I find the rooms to small and no privacy. This Inn is the complete opposite. It has three floors, the first and second floors have wrap around porches. The rooms have complete privacy. It's an old renovated Inn. It is just lovely. The staff is awesome and the property is...

We ended up needing a room with short notice. We loved the porches and thought the room (15) was lovely. Also enjoyed the breakfast and the afternoon service with lemonade and snacks. Pool and other amenities are great, nice to have available towels, umbrellas and chairs if you need them.

I searched online prior to our first OBX visit for rental homes and nothing jumped out. I did not know the best places to stay and we planned only 3 nights. Found the First Colony Inn and we were very satisfied for our purposes. The room was spacious (John Spendlove #22) and comfortable. The bathroom was small but that was... More

For the most part I enjoyed the stay. The front desk people were very helpful and attentive. The location is nice and peaceful. The only concern I have is this is advertised as a Bed & Breakfast, and with that label I would hope people who bring their children would keep an eye on them and stop any loud or... More

Thank you for your post here. I regret that your stay was disrupted by the children we had at the inn while you were here. It is not often that we have small children stay with us and when we do, we depend on the parents to make sure their kids are made mindful of the other guests staying here.... More

My first time to OBX. Rooms were large, clean, and had all the amenities one would need. We were on the third floor which meant two flights of steps but figured it was good exercise. My only complaint was the shower in our specific room was very tight and a large man would have trouble maneuvering in it. The grounds... More

Who knew something this quaint still existed in OBX? The building, the grounds and our room were great. Bianca checked us in and was very helpful. Unfortunately, the rest of the service was poor. Housekeeping made our bed, but that was all. They did not replenish the coffee service, the trash was not emptied, and the towels were still on... More

Stayed here with my family (2 kids age 10/13) for a long holiday weekend in July, yes during hurricane Arthur. Despite Mother Nature being uncooperative, we had a truly wonderful weekend.
