Welcome to the Outdoors Inn!
Relax and enjoy real island living in the casual, atmosphere of our eclectic 1890's home.  The Outdoors Inn is run in the  tradition of the original outer banks guest homes.  The owners live in the B & B and you will most likely see them everyday.  If you need to reach us at anytime we are not at the Inn, you can find us at our outfitters store, Roanoke Island Outfitters and Dive Center, located 1 block away.  We cook your breakfast, and enjoy sharing our home with you.  The interior is mostly tongue and groove juniper on the walls and ceiling.  We enjoy restoring our home and complete a new project (almost) every year.  We offer free bicycles and special pricing on our kayak tours or rentals and SUP rentals. We have a outfitters store located 1 block from the Inn where we sell kayaks, scuba gear, SUP boards and all the accessories.  We also have the largest selection of spearfishing guns and gear in Eastern NC.  We teach Scuba Diving if you are interested in getting certified while you are here.
