Sometimes all you have to do is to disconnect and have some good time away from the daily stress and pressure. This is when you need to go somewhere to have some fun and enjoy the magic of nature.

Indulge in kayaking:

You can have a nice kayaking trip to watch the sunset or have an overnight trip. Sound side kayaking is very popular and Colington Creek Inn is perfect as a point to start paddling. There are 5 different sounds that you can choose from in order to start kayaking. They are usually very shallow and this is great for kayakers because even the inexperienced ones can stand up easily if the kayak tips over. Spending time at our Outer Banks of North Carolina Inn is a chance that is not to be missed.

A Bird Watcher’s Paradise
A Bird Watcher’s Paradise

Bird watching is a hobby possessed by a large chunk of nature fanatics and avid explorers across the world. As relaxing and peaceful as it may be as an activity, it is crucial that bird watching is done in an environment that provides the bird watchers with the most appropriate atmosphere to sit in peace and calmly look at birds. In addition to this is the more important aspect of the fact that, to carry out the activity of bird watching, one must also be present in an area where one can find a variety of different species of birds within the vicinity.

We often find that for an activity like bird watching, customers often wish to resort to a holiday home or spend a night or two at a hotel. For purposes of being in a peaceful environment, people often prefer taking a break from their hectic schedules and escaping the fast-paced life of the city, retreating into a comfortable and cozy holiday resort where they can have a few quiet moments of relaxation.

Since we here at the Colington Creek Inn know exactly what our customers require for their peaceful retreats, our friendly and cooperative staff is always looking to serve our customers with the best of services.

Situated on the breathtaking outer banks of North Carolina, Colington Creek Inn is a resort surrounded by water. Each room has a picturesque view of the sparkling water, and along with being spacious, provides customers the right amount of privacy that they require.

The reason why Colington Creek Inn is the best spot for bird watching during the current season is the fact that it is located in an area that is home to a variety of some of the most unique species of birds. These include the entire hawk family, with eagles and Osprey, a variety of seagulls and ducks, and vast numbers of Kingfishers, Bald Eagles, Songbirds, and geese. What makes the activity of bird watching particularly more attractive than other resorts or inns that offer similar services Is the very fact that, at Colington Creek, customers are allowed to watch birds up close, providing them with an unforgettable experience like no other.

Another plus point for visitors is the fact that our native staff is well-equipped and fully aware of all the attractions and areas around the island that will guide customers to exactly the kind of activity that they are looking for.

 

The story of the double “R”s
The story of the double “R”s

Many people have asked us about the “Double R” and the bright red heart that is prominent in the eaves of our building.  We have had speculation that it is a secret an anti-hurricane symbol or maybe a mysterious Outer Banks version of the Pennsylvania Dutch Hex signs.  Not quite….but not far off.  The Double R’s represent Ruby and Rose,  two sisters whose family owned this property for generations and who lived in a traditional Outer Banks cabin on this location before we built our Bed and Breakfast.   Ruby and Rose were Mae’s aunt’s and as a child, Mae spent may days and evenings in their company listening to their stories and enjoying this beautiful piece of the planet.  While they are no longer with us, the Double R’s are a tribute to these brave and beautiful women who showed us how to appreciate life’s little pleasures.  We honor them and hope to impart a little of their spirit into this house and onto your visit.
