The Crows Nest is a "very" relaxing house that is well laid out, spacious and wonderfully decorated. The location is such that you can easily walk to the beach, restaurants and stores. One of our favorite bike routes begins a few blocks away at Colington Road which takes you past The Wright Brothers Memorial and back to quiet streets along the sound ,brings you to Kitty Hawk and across the bypass to the Beach road. The circle you make is roughly 9 miles, a wonderful way to start any morning! Beach access? Just walk two blocks to the left,( short blocks ) over one and there you are! Takes about 5 minutes. The house has a very large main area that is open and comfortable. We enjoyed it very much and plan on returning in the future. You can't go wrong staying here.
