The Bodie Island Lighthouse, (pronounced "Body") is located just south of the town of Nags Head and Whalebone Junction, where Highway 158, Highway 64, and NC Highway 12 intersect. Visitors travelling towards Hatteras Island can't help but notice the black and white horizontal striped structure, peaking out over a line of dense cedar trees on the soundside.
Anglers and water lovers will be in a simple Outer Banks-style heaven with a visit to the Fin 'N Feather Waterside Inn. This coastal hotel is found in between the communities of Nags Head and Roanoke Island, and as a result, is surrounded by the Roanoke Sound on virtually all sides, and is close to a wealth of local attractions and activities. Visitors will be minutes away from favorite Manteo sites like Roanoke Island Festival Park and the North Carolina Aquarium, as well as favorite OBX destinations like Jennette’s Pier and Jockey’s Ridge State Park, which will leave guests with one continual question in mind – what to do next?
The inn takes full advantage of its soundfront setting by offering a picnic area and private dock for fishing and kayaking, and many of the rooms offer prime open water views. There are standard, deluxe, and two-bedroom condo accommodations available, and all individual rooms feature plenty of amenities including a mini-fridge, coffee maker, microwave, complimentary Wi-Fi, flat screen TVs, and all the little extras (like toiletries and an iron and ironing board) that makes a stay stress free. With lots of ways to relax and simply enjoy the salt air, anyone with an appreciation of miles of waterfront will feel right at home at the Fin 'N Feather Waterside Inn.
