Nicholas Sparks is famous for his beautifully written romantic novels. One of Sparks’ novels was brought to life with the movie, Nights in Rodanthe, featuring Richard Gere and Diane Lane, and was filmed right here on the coast of North Carolina.
The movie’s famous inn is still standing today in Rodanthe and available for weekly rentals. After suffering significant damage from coastal storms, the house was bought and renovated by fans and moved to a safer location. Local police stopped traffic, and utility workers removed power lines as the inn traveled to its new site.
