The picture of the gate out front says it all. You are sort of welcome. Oh, that's as far as the gates opens. Good luck maneuvering it! Guests are patrons, not guests. The host was visible once, when WE engaged him. The hostess could not be bothered. "Breakfast" as they define it on their web-page doesn't exist. The eggs were cold, the coffee and hot water had to be asked for and the "fresh" muffins and such were store bought or gotten from a church sale. The hostess stayed in the kitchen working on the computer and every time we tried to engage her, she gave us a look of "why are you bothering me". The second morning, our last, we arrived in the common dining room only to find that she couldn't wait to get out and "get to work". There was no coffee or hot water on the second day and God did NOT SEE IT AND IT WAS NOT GOOD.
The bed, in the yellow room, was first used by King John of England as a torture instrument for those still waiting for King Richard to return. The ceiling above it sounded as though it wanted to crash in at any time as people above walked on it. Also, the nightly argument was almost interesting except that we couldn't make out the words.
There is no hot tub, patio, pool or friendliness, as is noted on the OUTERBANKS website, an excuse that was immediately used by the hostess for anything that was not available. If you want to stay there, you will be safer since the POLICE station is across the street. There was no attempt to get to know us.
Our first clue to the tragedy should have been the cancellation policy of 14 days. No other B&B that we know of does this. If you have booked this place, call the county health department and then cancel quickly. We got virtually no good sleep and it is very possible that the car would have been more comfortable.
The best part of the stay was leaving. This place should be out of business since the people running it are tired of running it. Since one cannot rate zero stars, we rate it none of the above. Go somewhere else.
