The First Colony Inn is a lovely old hotel one block in from the beach in Nags Head. The building used to be right on the beach but it was then almost right on the surf so they picked it up and moved it inland. Built in the 1930's, its beautifully restored. We had a room on the 3rd floor (#26) that suited us just fine - comfy queen sized bed, nice furnishings, screened in balcony overlooking the lawn and a bird house with glimpses of the ocean and sound, clean and spacious bathroom, in-room sink, fridge, and safe.
Breakfast was served in a small dining room on the first floor - usually some combination of eggs and meat with a variety of breads and bagels, cereal, coffee, tea; not the fanciest B&B breakfast but filling.
The wrap around veranda on the second floor and the patio had numerous lounges for sitting and relaxing. On the second floor was an extensive library plus internet access. It was a short walk down a boardwalk to the beach proper. Overall we had a great time.
