The Colington Creek Inn is truly an exceptional B&B. The innkeeper, Mae, is gracious, friendly, and completely committed to making her guests' experience the best it could possibly be. Overall, this is a wonderful B&B.
The Inn itself was constructed in 2005 and planned from the start to be a B&B. This means it's perfectly set up for the comfort of its guests. There are four guest rooms, one in each of the four corners on the second floor. Each room is beautifully furnished with antique beds, dressers, and chairs -- three have king-sized beds; the fourth has a queen. All four have large private baths, fully equipped and spacious. Each room also has half of a magnificent screened-in porch, furnished with plush chairs, sofas, and tables. The views from every room are incredible -- Kitty Hawk Bay is gorgeous. It's the perfect place to relax.
Breakfast is served on the porches, which gave my husband and me the chance to meet a young couple from Altoona. It was nice talking with them over breakfast both mornings. Mae's breakfasts are wonderful -- we had French toast and sausage one morning (with fresh strawberries, juice, and plenty of coffee and tea); the second morning it was Mae's crustless quiche, sweet rolls, and watermelon. Both breakfasts were delicious. Mae told us she makes a point of serving different food each morning, so that guests who stay an entire week never have the same breakfast twice.
Wine and cheese is served to order each afternoon between 4:30 and 5:30, and Mae always puts out a tray of sweet treats in the evening. Both nights we returned from dinner to find one of Mae's delights waiting for us (chocolate chip cookies, still warm from the oven the first night, and a caramel cake with chocolate butter cream frosting the second night). Everything was delicious.
The Inn has a very nice pool overlooking the bay, with plenty of lounge chairs, and even a grill. There's an elevator to make bringing your luggage up to your room a snap. There's a TV in the lounge on the first floor, a big front porch with rockers, and a ton of things to marvel over as your explore. The Inn is located a few miles down Colington Road, just over the bridge on Colington Island. You'll be within easy reach of all of the OBX beaches, the Wright Brothers Memorial (which is literally just down the street), and Roanoke Island. It really is the perfect place to enjoy the beach while "getting away from it all" at the same time.
My husband and I will definitely be back. This is the perfect place to stay.
