Choosing the First Colony Inn as the venue for a birthday treat for both our daughter Judith and her husband Justin (I will not give their ages but together they total 98), was a master-stroke. They have visited the Outer Banks previously and were keen to show the area to us. The First Colony is a little gem. A truly homely welcome from Sarah on our arrival was followed by a drinks and nibbles reception, to which we contributed Judith's birthday cake which was enjoyed by all. The individuality of the bedrooms is a joy. Rocking chairs on the veranda give a relaxed atmosphere, and the beach is only a short walk away. We were very apprehensive after hurricane Irene had done her worst to the area, but the hotel seemed untroubled although the surrounding area was still being cleared of debris. An ideal situation to visit local lighthouses (limited for us by roads being washed away) and the magnificent Wright Memorial which is just a few miles north. Breakfast was excellent, both plentiful and varied. There are ample restaurants in the vicinity offering all kinds of menu. OBX is well worth visiting and if we return from the UK we would choose the First Colony inn as our base without a second thought!
