Reunion Party at the Tar Heel

This weekend was a blast with the entire motel booked for a reunion. Guests came from all over North Carolina and Virginia. One truck came in hauling a pull behind cooker and set up in front of the breezeway. Having booked the whole place, the group was able to spread out and set up stations throughout the motel grounds. Party central was in the breezeway with the grill close by that always had something delicious cooking. Fresh North Carolina shrimp and tuna, along with your traditional wings, burgers and hot dogs were all served up in style. To make it group friendly rain or shine, we took one of the kitchenettes and made it into the hospitality suite. Beds were removed and replaced with long tables to accommodate food and drinks. 

Of course there is something for everyone to keep busy on the Outer Banks. Fishing, sight seeing, shopping, hiking are all minutes away. Let's not forget the beach that is only steps away. It was a joy to see everyone mingling and catching up with one another. We at the Tar Heel Motel look forward to having the group back next year for this annual event.

Sound like something you would be interested in? Call us at 252-441-6150 and we can discuss booking the entire place for your next reunion or event.

Go Fish!

The days are starting to warm up and these past two weeks have been bustling in Nags Head on the Outer Banks. People are opening their cottages, families are enjoying the beaches and the fishing piers are a busier these days.

Easter Weekend was a little slow for fishing but the fisherman were out none the less. The piers were catching Blow Toad, Sea Mullet and Skate. Sound fishing was good with Black Drum, Stripers and Trout. Offshore trips are bringing home Yellowfin and Wahoo.

This weekend and into the week we are expected to have wonderful weather. What are you waiting for? Last one to cast their line has to clean the catch!

What's new at the Tar Heel Motel

Since opening in 1960 we have had the pleasure of watching families grow as generations come and stay with us. We have been busy at the Tar Heel these past few weeks, yet staying true to the ole' Nags Head style that everyone loves! We have updated our Tar Heel Motel website and added live online reservation system, a fresh coat of paint has brightened the motel and a few other great things are in the works. Our wish is to have both return guests and new guests come and have an enjoyable stay at prices that continue to be very affordable.
