Loved the location being on the Southern end...Breakfast each morning was wonderful and actually took us up to the 3:30 Social Hour with wine/snacks! The pool was very relaxing, as was the on grounds hammocks! Loved too, beach chairs were provided to use on the beach!! The veranda porch always had a breeze to relax in...I could go on & on!

"We love the First Colony Inn. We’ve stayed here several times and will definitely return. This historic inn has been restored and is truly a unique gem. It feels like you’ve stepped back in time to a more easy, relaxed way of life. The decks with rocking chairs and swings encourages relaxation and slowing down to really enjoy your stay. The wonderful breakfast each morning and afternoon wine and cheese hour are added bonuses. The grounds are beautiful with abundant flowers and gardens. Food & drinks: Great breakfast each morning and afternoon happy hour with wine, cheese, fruit, etc."

"I have been a repeat guest at the inn many times over the years. It is a great way to enjoy OBX if you don't have the time or number of people to rent a house. First Colony is much homier than a regular hotel. It has charm, great wrap around porches and beautiful gardens. All you need to bring are your shorts and bathing suit. They supply the beach chairs, beach towels and bicycles. They have a lovely swimming pool and are across the street from the beach. We love the delicious breakfasts and afternoon wine and snacks. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the place is very clean. I gave 4 stars for service only because I would like them to return to the pre-covid days of daily housekeeping in the rooms. They have a beautiful library but it closes at 6:00. This has been my only complaint over the years. This is the only shared indoor space and it would be great to hangout there in the evenings, especially when the weather is bad. Management said they have to lock up when staff leave for the day because the front desk isn't locked. That would be easy enough to change with a roll down panel. I noticed other gusts complaining about it too. It is a major drawback to the homey, relaxed feel to the place."

"We checked out this morning after a three night stay. Our room was the Thomas Ellis. What an amazing stay, from the front desk , the young girl who helped seat us each morning for breakfast, the amazing food, the clean comfortable room, beautiful grounds and the sweet housekeeping staff who came by to check if we needed anything. We will definitely be back. Thank you again for making our anniversary celebration memorable ❤️"

"This was our fifth year staying at the First Colony Inn, and, as always, our stay was perfect. The rooms are always very nicely appointed; the staff is always friendly; and the amenities are wonderful. There is no other place in the OBX where we stay now."
