First Colony Inn catered to our every need. They were background present at all times. The venue was perfect for our daughter's destination wedding. Being able to have all of the wedding party in one location was key. Almost all of the wedding guest came to the First Colony Friday night after the rehearsal dinner to socialize and play corn hole; it was a great kick off to the weekend. Most of the wedding guest stayed on after the reception to keep the party going. The grounds and decking of the First Colony were perfect for a large group (we had 140 people).
First Colony serves a delicious breakfast in the morning and in the afternoon serves wine, cheeses and dessert. They also decorated outside by the pool with colored banners and made the breakfast room very pretty - just as an added part of the charm of the Inn. The Inn was beautiful and we loved having the entire place filled with family, friends and the entire wedding party.

First Colony Inn was the ideal reception location for our 220-person June wedding. Sarah Close and the staff at First Colony Inn were fabulous to work with during the entire wedding weekend, and jumped through hoops to accommodate our needs and the needs of all of our friends and family who stayed there. They made the jobs of our other vendors easy, and gave us every flexibility that we requested of them. The location could not have been better for a wedding at the beach: directly across the street from the ocean, directly across the highway from the sound, and views of both from the wrap-around balconies. The building is unique and historic; the rooms are comfortable and welcoming; the staff are patient and warm. I cannot recommend them highly enough and we are so grateful that we chose them for not only our wedding day but our entire wedding weekend.

First Colony Inn was so amazing! Our wedding took over the whole Inn for two nights, and the staff there was outstanding. Anything we needed from booking rooms, wine, breakfast, etc. they bent over backwards for us. They even put our wedding colors in the breakfast room and by the pool! I highly recommend First Colony Inn!

The staff of the First Colony Inn were very accomodating to us and our guests. They were more than willing to help with anything we asked and went above and beyond in providing services. The location was absolutely beautiful and made for a beautiful wedding reception venue not to mention a wonderful wedding weekend altogether. I would recommend them again and again.

This is the best inn in Nags Head, NC. They provided so much help to us and were so flexible when it began to rain just before our ceremony, that let us use the front porch of the inn. The rooms are bigger then you would expect for an inn, and it is more beautiful then any of the pictures can describe.

First Colony Inn is an absolutely first rate destination venue for a wedding. We loved working with the staff and our guests loved the laid back yet full service vibe. We had lots of reservation changes in the months and weeks leading up to the wedding, but staff at the Inn were accommodating at every turn.

The only reason for the 4 star score on Responsiveness is that when phone calls would roll over to the management office if Inn staff were busy with guests, confusion could ensue. Because our wedding weekend event contract booked the entire Inn, the management office sometimes told callers that the Inn was full and turned them away. If they had asked if the caller was part of the wedding party/family and put them through to the Inn staff who were handling our weekend reservations directly, that would not have been a problem. All that said, this would not deter me in the least from booking First Colony again...loved it!!!

Bottom line, if you're looking for a fabulous coastal venue with lots of charm and attentive on-site staff, you can't go wrong at First Colony!!
