Not only is this a gorgeous and comfortable inn, but the folks that run it make you feel like family. We enjoyed chatting with Roshida and Ada on more than one occasion. Both women were quick with excellent recommendations and went out of their way to make us at home (for example, when we couldn't figure out how to make the heat work, Roshida came up to our room on the third floor to show us how! (That's three flights of stairs! In the freezing cold!)
This was our first visit to the Outer Banks, and as we told Ada on our way out, it was the way we were treated at the First Colony Inn that will have us coming back!
While in Nags Head, don't miss the fish tacos at Mama Kwans (sp???) (thanks to Pete from Whalebone Surf Shop for that jewel!) Also, make sure to take the time to drive out to Hatteras Island...miles and miles of gorgeous beach and migratory birds galore!! PLUS: if you have the chance, check out the AMAZING Beachcomber Museum, home of the Nellie Myrtle Collection (and tell Chaz we said hey!) www.oldnagshead.org will let you know if it is open or not. TRUST ME, this will blow your mind if you are into beach combing....
Enjoy your time...I wish I was still there!
