Fodor's Expert Review First Colony Inn
6715 S. Croatan Hwy., MM 16, Nags Head, North Carolina, 27959, USA
Stand on the verandas that encircle this old, three-story, cedar-shingle inn—saved from demolition and moved to the present site—and admire the ocean views. Rooms have four-poster or canopy beds, handcrafted armoires, and English antiques, along with extras such as heated towel bars and English toiletries. The story of this landmark's near demolition, its rescue, and the move to the present site is told in framed photographs, letters, and news accounts lining the sunny dining room.
