Extending a business trip, I traveled alone to the OBX. This was a perfect choice for my relaxing getaway. Loved the quiet atmosphere, wide porch and comfy chairs, quick walk across the dune for morning beach strolls. Perfect spot!

The people who work in the Inn are like old family friends. The rooms are charming, spotless and well-appointed. Delicious breakfast. Nice to have chairs and beach towels provided. There's nothing like sitting on the wide veranda and enjoying the breeze. At night there's a different magic atmosphere. I love this place. If you are beaching it alone there's no place better than here. Sadly the other historic hotels have gone by the wayside. The location is perfect, too, with less congestion than further north.

A friend and I came to Nags Head for a famliy member's wedding, being it was also our birthday weekend, we opted to make it a long weekend & see the sites, our stay at the colony was the best choice ever. The staff was great and very helpful with directions and recommendations for places to eat and things to see. We really enjoyed starting the day off with a wonderful breakfast with lots of delicious items to choose from. The porches were a great place to end the day watching the sunset. Would love to return for another visit, the colony will be the first call I make for a place to stay. Will also recommend the colony to all my freinds and family. Thank you again to all the staff for a wonderful vacation.

We stayed at this fabulous Inn on our honeymoon and have been back every year since on our anniversary. We can't say enough about the great staff and service we received, even in the middle of February! We stay in the same room each year and look forward to it immensly. The room was very clean and we felt right at home. Breakfast is always fantastic as well, Love this place! Chester & Alison
