          We booked the George Howe Rm (12) for this June 9-19, and can't wait. I just discussed some of our questions with your staff by telephone. Chris, Hannah, and Bianca couldn't have been nicer, or more Professional. We have been coming to Nags Head off an on since the late '60s, always staying at the defunct Beacon Motor Lodge, because we enjoy "Old School" stuff. We expect FCI to be our new "Beacon" for years to come.
