          Mr. Bob Rittenhouse was a delight ! He took over the lodge from his father in 1953. We decided to stay there overnight on our way to OBX. The next morning we only had about 2 1/2 hours to Nags Head, NC. The place CLEAN,...More

          This is the cutest little place right of Route 13. It nestles in between large pine trees and a beautiful nature setting. It seems to come right out of an old movie, and it is absolutely charming, just like it´s original owner. The rooms are...More

          I called Mr. Rittenhouse and yes, they do, and they don't charge anything extra. Your dog would probably enjoy a stroll though the delightfully interesting property, too.
