Awesome- thought-of-everything-B&B

4.8 on December 11, 2013

Mike greeted us and showed us around, making us feel welcome to the fridge (stocked with pop, water, tea) wine and cheese (3:30-6) use of kitchen, beach toys & chairs, towels, sunscreen, common area to books. Then he showed us our bright, clean room with private bath & gave us the room keys. We had access to laundry and small pool, and the beach across the street. His dog princess, was friendly and guests with dogs had a rear exit- never met their dogs, but guests were nice. Breakfast was a broad continental with pastries, fruit, cereal & bagels.

A perfect getaway!

My husband surprised me with a 2 night stay at the Sandbar after a week in a vacation rental with our 4 children, their spouses, and 5 grandchildren under the age of 6! What a wonderful surprise! The Lighthouse room was absolutely beautiful with classy beach decor and stunning wall colors. The home is clean and inviting. I loved the wine & cheese service each evening. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of fresh fruit, and a wide assortment of specialty teas simply started the day perfectly! The house is just across the street from the ocean and close to many of the local attractions, including restaurants. The owner, Mike ,and his dog Princess, knew exactly how to make us feel welcome. We felt like members of the family! We would highly recommend the Sandbar to anyone looking for a casual, yet classy Bed & Breakfast.

A great getaway!

My husband and I recently stayed at the Sandbar to have a get-away to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary. We initially chose the Sandbar because of their green and organic cleaning products and also took advantage of the Sweetheart package that included champagne, chocolates, flowers and a gift certificate to a local restaurant. We were very happy with the room, location and especially with the friendliness and helpfulness of the Innkeeper, Cara. She was very knowledgeable and provided us with superior customer service related to our dinner reservations, local attractions and eateries and was an all-around pleasant person. We were able to make full use of the refrigerator for our own food storage helping to lower our personal costs during our stay. There was wine, cheese and crackers each evening in the kitchen area free of charge and a nice continental breakfast each morning with quality self-serve options. The only thing we could have asked for was a hot breakfast each morning, but there was not a full-kitchen so the reason for not having this made complete sense. I would highly recommend the Sandbar to anyone looking for a nice, clean, hospitable B&B in a great part of Nag's Head with close beach access.

A delightful experience

We stayed at the Sandbar for our annual winter birdwatching expedition to the Outer Banks. We always travel with our dogs, and have found it difficult to find pleasant, reasonably-priced, dog-friendly accommodations. The Sandbar welcomed our dogs and charged only a nominal fee for them to stay with us. Cara and her husband were friendly and hospitable, making a great effort to be sure we were comfortable and felt at home. The off-season room rate was very reasonable; our room was sunny, very clean and comfortable, and the common living room/kitchen was also bright and comfortable. I would highly recommend a stay at the Sandbar!

love this place

The Sandbar is immaculate, quiet and very laid back. We stayed in the Mermaid room which is on the second floor. The room is cool and "beachy" and had a very relaxing view with a wonderful breeze. We also brought our dogs. The layout is very dog friendly. There is an empty grass lot with a few bushes for the dogs to putz around and do business which was also very clean (no smells). Seems everyone is respectful and cleans up after their dogs. The large private balcony can also easily be closed off with a boogie board or beach chair to keep a normal mannered dog from roaming. The beach is a few strides away and the area seems calm and also a great point to access attractions. There is nothing "doggy" about this place except the fact that they are happily welcomed. There is a small place to eat accross the street with pretty good food. The Inn keepers were very friendly and non-intrusive. Overall, this place really has it's act together.
