“AMAZING!”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

My husband and I were so impressed with The Inn at Corolla Light! Planning our elopement, we found this inn online. When my husband called to make the reservation, he spoke to Dan who gave us a wonderful, cozy room with a beautiful view of the sound for a great price. We immediately were impressed upon arrival. Dan and his wife checked us in were so kind. At breakfast the next morning (which was delicious), they surprised us with a bottle of champagne as a wedding gift. This place is not a normal hotel. Very homey and feels like a bed breakfast! The resort also has great things to offer. We plan on going back next year with our families and would never consider staying anywhere else! Loved it!

So happy you enjoyed your honeymoon at the Inn. We love to hear about why guests are here and special occasions are just that at the Inn. That is the charm and magic of the Inn as we love to take special care of honeymoon couples. Make the Inn an annual anniversary event....magic is always here at the Inn!

My husband and I planned a last minute first visit to the Outer Banks, NC and came to visit Corolla. We were delightfully pleased with the Inn at Corolla Light for its rustic charm, cleanliness, and most of all, the friendly Inn Keepers, Our room was spacious and equipped with a fireplace and had an awesome view of the sound and their beautiful walk out pier. The complimentary amenities offered to all guests (bicycles, use of the nearby sports center, gorgeous pool and jacuzzi,and use of movies in room and breakfast) were all wonderful! The inn keepers really made us feel so at home with their very kind and personal touch and attention to any request. We would love to come back next summer!

What a great pleasure to have you book the Inn. When I spoke to Frank to book the room he was excited about coming to the Outer Banks for the first time. Once we spoke he was hooked and came up with wife Rita after a visit to New Bern. What a great couple and boy did they take advantage of all that the Inn and resort have to offer. We hope you can both come back to us once again soon! Sincerely Dan Palaschak Innkeeper

This review is long over due! I started calling places in the spring trying to find the perfect beach place to marry the man of my dreams. I had the great fortune of having Dan answer the phone when I called the Inn. I insisted on getting married with my toes in the sand... Dan explained that there was plenty of beach access near by but that if I didn't have to have my toes in the sand that he could accommodate us either at the beautiful sound front gazebo or any number of other beautiful areas this Inn has to offer. I did however need a place for a small reception and a place for my friends and family to stay. My fiance traveled down for a night and it was settled. The reception would be held at The Inn and our invites would welcome our guests to reserve a room at this wonderful place. We absolutely love this place. Not only is it a great place but the people of this Inn are incredible. They'd do anything for you. Include throwing your wedding party on their anniversary... and I never would have known if my sister hadn't over heard them talking. These people are what make this place so wonderfully amazing. You feel like you are right at home but better... because you are on vacation! Almost everyone of our wedding guests stayed here and had nothing but positive things to say. These folks didn't just spoil the bride and groom... they spoiled EVERYONE!

Room Tip: Jaw-dropping sound-side sunset views! Gorgeous!

We knew we had made new friends in Amy and Brian when we met. Thanks for letting us have the first bridal reception the Inn hosted and for such a beautiful couple. Thanks also for giving us your confidence to pull off your wedding reception albeit during a major thunderstorm. Nothing could dampen your wedding; Betsy and I truly enjoyed you letting us be part of it and recognizing our 30 wedding anniversary that night. Your family was amazing, and it was our pleasure to meet them all. See you on your first anniversary here at the Inn or hopefully sooner. Love you guys, Dan Palaschak Innkeeper

My husband and daughter and myself stayed at the Inn at Corolla light for the first time on Memorial day this year. We wanted to have a relaxing time and just get away from reality for a little while. We were going to stay at a "chain" hotel and just happened to call around for prices and Dan, the Innkeeper, told us to come on over and see how wonderful his place was. I am SOOOO glad he did that. We had an AMAZING time there at the Inn. First, we only had 24 hours there, and wished we had more, but we made the best of it. We rode the complimentary bicycles down the road a bit and had dinner at a neat little pizza place called "cosmos'. That pizza was fantastic! Then, we went to the Whalehead club and sat in the grass for a concert. Then we walked to the lighthouse and walked to the top! That was ALOT of steps! We made our way back to the Inn and sat on the pier and talked for a while, then got back on the bikes to get an ice cream cone. What a great night! We didn't think anything could top that off UNTIL the next morning. Breakfast at the INN at Corolla light was nothing short of AWESOME! THEN...we took a tour in a jeep with the top down and saw some wild horses on the beach and surrounding area! AMAXING!!!!! Back to the INN.......Such a personal touch, and friendliness! Everyone who worked at the Inn was like family, and seemed to really care about you enjoying your time there. So, we decided to come back on Labor Day! We were NOT disappointed! Dan and some of the other staff remembered who we were and welcomed us as if we were family! Again, we hung out at the pool, walked on the pier, rode bikes (compliments of the Inn), had a wonderful breakfast.....and overall, just had an amazing 3 day weekend! I HIGHLY recommend this place to ANYONE...of ANY age! I saw young newlyweds there, just sitting on the pier, I saw families with little kids having fun, I saw a few older couples too....I can't wait to go back! It will now be an annual thing for us. THANKS TO DAN AND HIS STAFF!!! Hats off to all of you!

The Inn has much to offer and you surely covered it all in your comments. Come back and see us again as it is repeat customers like you that the Inn so enjoys having back.

This inn has the feel of a small bed and breakfast that mixes the old with the new. Very clean and pretty inside. We enjoyed the inn's pool and deck with exceptional view of the sound. We also enjoyed the pools and beach access at the resort. We did not have the occasion to use the sports center but I am sure in the fall that will be a place we will visit. A lot to do in this area and yet remote as well. I typically have a difficult time sleeping when I am not in my own bed but not this trip... slept great - very comfortable bed. I enjoyed the atmosphere at the inn and the inn keepers are especially friendly! We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: We had a first floor sound view which was beautiful. The room is small but plenty big for two and wi...

The Inn absolutely exceeded my expectations! We were first impressed that we were able to bring our dog--and knowing that the innkeepers love dogs made us feel much more comfortable! We were upgraded to a sound view room and surprised with a bottle of champagne after mentioning that it was our anniversary when we were chatting while checking in. We felt very welcomed and appreciated as guests. The room was neat and clean. The fireplace and whirlpool tub were a nice touch inside, while the adirondack chairs out on the deck overlooking the sound with a view of the pier were very enjoyable while relaxing outside. There is so much to do in and around the resort and we loved the Inn so much that we are planning to come back every year (except stay longer next time)!

My 16 year old son and I just took a trip to Corolla to kayak and drive on and enjoy the beach for a few days. A better location we could not ask for. We tied our two-person kayak to the inn's long dock on the sound, using it daily, and drove the short distance to the 10 mile long 4x4 drivable beach...that was a hoot...and got some nice close views of the famous horses to boot. Plenty of good eating between Corolla and Duck and there were many amenities (that we didn't have time to take advantage of other than the free use of bikes) in the resort that this inn is part of. As for the inn itself, the innkeepers could not have been more welcoming. The room was large and clean, the water views great and the daily help-yourself-breakfast, while not varying from day to day, was just fine. Our room (22) opened to the lovely pool and hot tub overlooking Currituck Sound. A great place to hang out. We will be back, no doubt.
