Not sure what the best part was: location, charm, hospitality, or ambience! The Roanoke Island Inn had it all in spades. Rocking chair porch overlooking the water, waterfront walks, summer house (or folly) in the garden, colorful koi pond, round-the-clock snacks, and a stable of bikes made for a very relaxing stay. Parking is ample, and downtown is just steps away. Such a perfect place to base a trip in the OBX. A quick drive over the bridge and you are on the beach, then come "home" to quiet southern comfort and grace. Only snag was a fairly hard mattress in room 7, but that is a matter of preference as much as anything.
