My son and I stayed in the Canal Room for 2 nights in July. We felt completely spoiled by the time we left. Dawn and Darold must have found their life's calling because they are incredibly intuitive hosts with a gift for making you feel comfortable and at home. The inn is so lovely, and breakfast there is really special. I've been craving the food ever since we left!

I can only start with: WOW!! My husband & I had a PHENOMENAL experience at Colington Creek Inn. From the start to the finish of our stay we were met with above and beyond hospitality. We stayed in the Suite and really felt that every detail they put into our room (as well as every where else in the Inn or on the property) was thoughtful, practical, and from the heart. The breakfasts were indescribable— utilizing home/Inn grown, local and gluten-free ingredients & they really showed off their culinary knowledge with different and delicious recipes. A tiny fraction of the reasons for this 5 star review not yet mentioned: recommended amazing local restaurants (literally down the street), large & clean pool, fun porch swings on the screened-in porch and overlooking the water, the jacuzzi tub in the Suite was fantastic (and Epsom salts were provided!!), they had their own little dock, great quality linens, towels, robes, and mattress, and lastly— all of the personalized details that I’ll keep as a surprise. While we were relaxing on the enclosed porch outside our room on the 3rd day of our stay, my husband quoted, “I feel like we’ve come to a vacation home that we’ve known for so long.” That truly speaks to the warm & inviting ambiance of this Inn. Please stay here!! We can’t recommend this place enough. Dawn & Darold have huge hearts, love people well, and are proud owners of a gorgeous and relaxing property. ***We stayed here during COVID and they were awesome about following every rule of COVID compliance. They had their masks on at all times, recommended we wear masks, spaced out guests in outdoor spaces, and kept the property sparkling clean and sanitized.

Darold and Dawn’s Colington Creek Inn is a perfect place to stay on the Outer Banks (OBX). The location is perfect, the Inn itself is gorgeous and so comfortable, and the hosts make you feel at home. They are a great team who serve a beautiful breakfast, of which we enjoyed three! Dawn even leaves a scrumptious dessert by your door at the end of the day. Their recommendations of things to do nearby were excellent. Highly recommend this Inn and next time we’re in the OBX, we will stay here (hopefully when the weather is cooler and we can take advantage of every single one of those gorgeous porches!)

Our first stay in the Colington Creek Inn was absolutely incredible. The view of the water from the cottage was beautiful. The decor in the cottage and main house make this a very inviting place to stay! There are numerous places on the property to sit inside or outside and look at the water and view the osprey and other birds. The breakfast served each morning was lovingly prepared by owners Dawn and Darold, who are fabulous chefs/cooks. The tremendous hospitality made us feel so welcomed! The pool offered a relaxing and refreshing place to spend the day! Thank you Dawn and Darold for everything! We absolutely will be back to stay here again!

We cannot say enough about Dawn and Darold. From the time we arrived to our departure, they always made sure we had everything we needed. The breakfasts were mouth watering and delicious. This was a third visit and we will be returning for Labor Day!! Thank you Steve and Jaime Baetz NC
