Rodanthe

This small Hatteras Island town is probably most famous for Nicholas Sparks book Nights in Rodanthe which was later turned into a movie and filmed in Rodanthe and eastern North Carolina. The house used in the movie was damaged and condemned after a Nor’easter storm in November of 2009. The house was later saved by a private business man and moved further south less than a mile from its original location. The house is still standing today and is called “Serendipity”. The house was used in the exterior scenes for the movie and had some changes made to it before filming. They added blue decorative shingles, a weathervane, a new sign, extra porches and decking and also new shrubbery.

Rodanthe is also known for the historic Chicamacomico Lifesaving Station –one of the original seven stations on the Banks. It was the site of an internationally famous rescue in 1918 when 42 men were saved from the burning English tanker Mirlo after it was torpedoed by Germans. Visiting the restored station offers a great history lesson about the service that preceded the U.S. Coast Guard.

Today, Rodanthe consists of mainly vacation rental homes and campgrounds. There are a few Bed & Breakfasts but no hotels. Some of the larger campgrounds are Camp Hatteras, Cape Hatteras KOA and Ocean Waves Campground.
