A WORLD OF FUN IS WAITING ON
While there is much to do on Hatteras Island, we counsel guests that the less of an agenda you start with, the more enjoyable your visit will be. Time moves differently here. “Let’s wander and explore” is often the best way to enjoy our island and culture.
The Inn is located in the village of Buxton, on Hatteras Island, in the midst of the natural beauty of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Just a few minutes’ drive is the Cape Hatteras lighthouse, the tallest brick lighthouse in the United States. Cape Point, where the Labrador Current meets the Gulf Stream is a short stroll from the lighthouse. Stop by the docks in the charming fishing hamlet of Hatteras Village around 4:00 in the afternoon to see charter boats bring in the day’s catch. Take a short ferry ride to Ocracoke Island, home of Blackbeard the Pirate. Walk the beaches of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Search for shells along our 70 miles of beautiful shoreline and watch dolphins frolic in the surf. Take a short ride to Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge. Wander the beautiful trails among an amazing diversity of wildlife. Visit the numerous small galleries featuring the works of our local artists and artisans.
