We haven't tried the shrimp (yet) but we did try the bacon wrapped scallops (yum).

We'll need to try Lisa's. Thanks! Already looking forward to next year.

For all you Rodanthe fans . A movie just recently came out that was filmed there 2 years ago when I was visiting the area.
YouTube - Nights in Rodanthe

That house is about the first house you see heading south on 12 in Rodanthe.

It amazing they use camera photo shop and was able to make the home look like it was by itself when there another home in spitting distace from it

Shortly after they were finished filming there, a storm blew through, and Serendipity (the house) was standing in water.

I like to keep an eye on that stretch of land by viewing the webcam at the Rodanthe S-curves. Yesterday, the area was full of surfers. Live from Hatteras Island
When the water breeches the dunes, NCDOT can keep an eye on the road.

Default So how do you pronounce Rodanthe

The reviewers of the new movie based on Nicholas Spark's (he lives in New Bern) novel about Rodanthe pronounce it Rodanth-EE. I noticed in an interview on the New Bern Sun Journal's web site (Sun Journal), Mr. Sparks pronounces it Rodanth. So how do the locals pronounce it?

Ro-DAN-thee. It would figure that Mr. Sparks didn't get it right. It's about as realistic as the cover of the book with a rocky coast.

Hi everyone, My gentlemen friend and I are planning on visiting Rodanthe this summer. Can you tell what month is best to visit (no Hurricanes please) and where to stay? I would love to stay in one of those beautiful homes on the beach. I am not sure if they allow a 2 night stay. Can anyone give me ideas. Thanks!

It is unlikely that you will find a house rental for a 2 night stay. The realtors usually pay a cleaning crew $100+ to clean the house. However, if you're flexible and willing to wait to the last minute, you may find a bargain.

Our family always has to go in the summer. We love mid to late June. The ocean may still be cool if you go any earlier in the season. That's only important if you want to swim. Hurricane season starts in July, but the most hurricanes come in late August, Sept. and early Oct. (when the rates are discounted).

If fishing is important to you, mid-summer is NOT the time to go. As the ocean warms up, the surf fishing really slows down. If you go out on a charter boat, you will greatly improve your fishing odds.

People that go during the winter months enjoy different parts about the shore - sea shells, sea glass, lack of people, etc.

If you absolutely can only stay two nights, get an oceanfront hotel room like the Ramada Inn in Kill Devil Hills, then drive to Rodanthe. There's also a Comfort Inn in Buxton, or the very modest but comfortable Buxton Beach Motel. You'll be close to the beach, the lighthouse, and Ocracoke.

I hope this helps.
