Talk to the Host


I just turned 61 and never stayed at a bed and breakfast in my life. I’m not normally comfortable in those settings, or at least I did not think so. To my surprise, Dawn and Darold made my stay extra special as their first guest. They proved to be fun and outgoing and I could not have been happier with my room. It was quite comfortable and the view from the sun porch was amazing! I wouldn’t stay anywhere else on the Outer Banks.
