This was our first stay at the Colington Creek Inn. What a find! Mae and Bob Lunden, the innkeepers, are warm and welcoming hosts. The inn is immaculate and impeccably cared for. The setting is idyllic. It is truly a labor of love for The Lundens and it shows.
We stayed in the Boat Room which was on the front side of inn facing the street. We had a view of Colington Creek from our bedroom, bath and sitting area. Our room was furnished beautifully and the bed was extremely comfortable. Each room has its own refrigerator with soft drinks and snacks. Our private bath had all the necessary amenities and was beautifully decorated.
The public areas of the inn are very comfortable. There is a sitting room on the first floor with a TV and wi-fi throughout. Outside there is a hammock in which to relax, a swing inside of a pergola and seating areas all overlooking Colington Creek. At night, the pier and dock are lit which offers a lovely ambience to the setting.
Breakfast is served at 9AM each morning, but we needed to get an early start on our day the first morning as did another couple, so Mae offered to have our meals ready at 8:30 which was very accommodating. Breakfast is served in the sitting areas at each end of the inn. Each sitting area is shared by two of the guest rooms. The breakfasts were hearty and presented in a lovely fashion. We awakened each morning to the smell of freshly brewed coffee that was available in the common area. Around 4:30PM, Mae served us wine, as well as crackers and cheese to tide us over to dinner. Upon return from dinner, each evening there was a sweet treat waiting for the guests in the common area. One night we had delicious cookies and the second night a wonderful cake.
On the last morning, I sat on one of the rockers on the front porch which also overlooks Colington Creek and enjoyed a cup of coffee prior to breakfast. It was total bliss watching the sun glisten on the water.
If you are plan to visit the Outer Banks, be sure to include a stay at this beautifully maintained inn. This inn is deserving of a FIVE STAR rating!
