My husband and I recently stayed at Cape Hatteras Bed and Breakfast for four nights to celebrate our one year anniversary at the end of April 2012. A young and friendly couple, Virginia and Jed, run the inn and are wonderful hosts. I knew from the first phone call to the inn that I had made the right decision. Virginia was so warm and helpful on the phone, so I knew right away that we were going to have a great weekend. The inn itself is very homey and we enjoyed the easy access to the rooms since they have outside entrances. The upstairs common area is gorgeous and so comfortable, and the view of the lighthouse during the day and at night is outstanding. The inn provides everything you need to enjoy the beach – towels, chairs, bicycles, buckets, etc. – and it is located only a half block away from the beautiful beach. The inn is perfectly situated to allow you to enjoy any part of the Outer Banks as a day trip, whether you want to take the ferry to Ocracoke or drive up north to Nags Head or Manteo. We wanted to enjoy the OBX without the hustle and bustle of the northern beaches, so the inn’s location was perfect. There were plenty of things for us to do (or not do if you just want to relax) and lots of places to eat out for lunch or dinner. Virginia’s breakfasts were delicious and we appreciated being able to choose what we wanted to eat each day. Every afternoon she bakes a different kind of cookie and each day they were phenomenal!! At breakfast each morning my husband excitedly asked about the cookie of the day and made a point to rush home each afternoon to sample the scrumptious treats.
I cannot say enough nice things about Virginia and Jed and the Cape Hatteras Bed and Breakfast. They are some of the friendliest and most genuine people I have met, particularly at a B&B, and they go out of their way to make the guests feel welcome. We are looking forward to planning a return trip to the Outer Banks, and as long as Virginia and Jed are the innkeepers we are definitely staying at this inn. Andrea L.
After reading several positive reviews of this place, my wife and I decided to go here for our honeymoon during the week of Labor Day. This place is run by an incredibly friendly and hospitable couple. The rooms and common areas are very nice and clean, but if the weather is as fantastic like it was when we went, you won’t be spending much time inside!
Every morning, Virginia and Jed whip up a delicious breakfast. When we were there, we could choose between an amazing quiche, fantastic homemade granola, or an incredible “traditional Southern” breakfast or a specialty item that changed daily. These specialty items tended to be somewhat exotic, like Eggs Florentine. I cannot emphasize how great the food is. I didn’t even know typical breakfast items like bacon or oatmeal could taste as good as they do here! You’re on your own for lunch and dinner but in the afternoons they put out tea, coffee and cookies for the guests.
The Cape Hatteras B&B is a short hop from the beach. Jed and Virginia are nice enough to include some items you might need for the beach. Towels, coolers, boogie boards, umbrellas etc. They even include a few bikes if you want to putt around town. A nice idea considering there’s lots of great restaurants and a lighthouse nearby.
Overall I can’t recommend this place enough. If you’re heading to the Outer Banks, you owe it to yourself to check this place out. Tom K.
I’d never been to OBX, but I was in town for my brother-in-law’s wedding and I can say unequivocally that the Cape Hatteras Bed & Breakfast was the highlight of the entire weekend (save the actual wedding). The accommodations were colorful, clean and cool. Virginia is a masterful chef, whose breakfasts were savory and suitable. Jed was an excellent host, whose knowledge of the region was deep and dependable. Both Virginia and Jed were exceedingly hospitable and helpful throughout our stay. Though I lack exposure to the many options for room and board in OBX, I strongly encourage everyone headed to the region to consider the Cape Hatteras Bed & Breakfast. J. Matthew N.
