Recent Northern Coast & Outer Banks reviews

  • Great house and a beautiful area

    "As newbies to the NC area, we had no idea what to expect. We now plan on making the Outer Banks a yearly excursion! Everything was just as described and more! The cottage was clean with great amenities...including an outdoor shower! I'm not sure why, but that was my favorite part of the house. We made many meals in the kitchen and used the outdoor bbq grill more than once. The cottage location was perfect. We were within a few walking minutes of the beach, Ice Cream, supplies, restaurants, etc. It's not easy to please a family 5 when 3 of them are teenagers. We all had a memorable time and Cheers was a great part of it. Thank you!!!"

  • Wonderful home!

    "Inn Like Flynn is a wonderful home! We were 6 adults who traveled to Duck for a wedding and decided to share a home rather than get multiple motel rooms. This was a perfect place to stay. The house is conveniently located on a quiet street within walking distance to the beach and sound, and close enough to walk to the town of Duck and the boardwalk. We saw deer and fox everyday. The kitchen is completely stocked, the beds are comfortable, there's plenty of space to hang out in the family room, and lots of seating on the multiple decks. It was too early in the season for us to use the pool, but it had been cleaned and looked spotless. There was somebody in the hot tub every night. Joelle was constantly available throughout our stay to instantly address any issues that might arise. Just can't say enough nice things about this place. Thanks Flynn family!"

  • Marvelous Family Vacation at Footprints"

    "Our family spent the week of July 19, 2014 for our annual summer, family vacation at "Footprints". What a marvelous place to have a grand family vacation. The home is simply spectacular and well appointed. We had 6 adults and 6 kids and never felt crowed whatsoever. The upper level, open concept living/eating/kitchen area was just perfect. It was only a short walk to the beach (less than 5 minutes) and the home had a beautiful swimming pool in the backyard as well as a nice hot tub on the first deck. The community was safe and secure, clean and well maintained. Everyone had a wonderful time. If you are looking for a "rowdy" vacation spot, look elsewhere. But if you are looking for a marvelous spacious home, safe, secure, and private for spending a family-oriented vacation, don't look anywhere else. Footprints met and exceeded our expectations. On a side note, the driveway was certainly large enough for our 6 cars and no parking problems whatsoever. All of the pictures that are posted on this site accurately portray the Footprints" home."

  • Adorable house, PERFECT location!

    "Literally across the street from the beach but with its own private pool in the backyard for the best of both worlds! Close to grocery stores, Wright Brothers Museum, next door to ice cream - which the kids loved! The house itself is clean and so cute. Bright colors, comfy furniture, felt right at home!"

Northern Coast & Outer Banks Travel Tips

The Outer Banks is a glorious stretch - 200 miles, to be exact - of barriers islands and peninsulas along the North Carolina coast. Though it boasts magnificent beaches, there’s plenty to do here year-round.

What to Do

The options are nearly endless in the Outer Banks.

- Take a hike at the Fort Raleigh National Historic Site on the northern end of Roanoke Island and visit the beautiful Elizabethan Gardens - a memorial to the first colonists.

- Immerse yourself in the history of flight at the Wright Brothers National Memorial and Museum in Kill Devil Hills, just south of Kitty Hawk.

- Visit the North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island to feed stingrays, pet an alligator, learn about sea turtle rescues and be wowed by the largest group of captive sharks in North Carolina.

- Go Kayaking or take stand up paddleboarding lessons in Kitty Hawk Bay from Kitty Hawk Kites or Kitty Hawk Surf Company.

- Do something extreme at Jockey’s Ridge State Park. There are awesome sand dunes here - if you know how to sand-board, get a permit and come here between October 1 and March 31. You can also take hang-gliding lessons from Kitty Hawk Kites and soar over Jockey’s Ridge, or go windsurfing in the shallow Roanoke Sound.

- Play a game of golf at any of the excellent courses, from the Currituck Club up in Corolla all the way down to Nags Head Golf Links.

What to See

The Outer Banks offer miles of scenic beauty and historic treasures.

- See the many historic lighthouses on the coast. Make sure you have your walking shoes on when you climb Cape Hatteras Lighthouse on Hatteras Island - it has 248 stairs on an iron spiral staircase, the equivalent of climbing 12 stories! After all of your work, you’ll be rewarded with a stunning view of the Atlantic. You can also visit the Ocracoke Lighthouse on Ocracoke Island at the very southern point of the Outer Banks, or head to the northernmost point to learn the sordid and mysterious history of the Currituck Beach Lighthouse in Corolla.

- Visit the Roanoke Settlement Site, the first English colony in the New World and learn about the mysteries of The Lost Colony. It’s an educational experience with games and woodworking to show what life was like back then. You can also visit and board a replica of the Elizabeth II, one of the boats that arrived in the New World in 1585. There’s plenty of activities for both kids and adults to enjoy here. In the summer, the play “The Lost Colony” is performed to educate and entertain.

- Check out the views from Jockey’s Ridge and Jennette’s Pier, both in Nags Head. Sunsets here are simply unmatched.

Events

There are plenty of festivals in the Outer Banks that harness its unique heritage and location. Check out the Bluegrass Island Festival, a newer addition to the fall lineup held the first weekend in October. It features Bluegrass by traditional artists as well as younger revival artists. Don’t forget to come for the homey Southern-style cooking!

The Outer Banks Seafood Festival is another fest celebrating coastal heritage. It’s held for one weekend in mid-October every year in Nags Head across the Roanoke Sound. Aside from enjoying various local seafood and cooking demonstrations, visitors can participate in the Fish House Olympics, including a Mullet Toss - the fish, not the hairstyle - and crab races. There’s also live music and a Dock & Dine event hosted by The Dunes Restaurant.
