Where is the house from the movie “Nights in Rodanthe”?

Amy Hotz

Visitors can find the home from “Nights in Rodanthe,” the 2008 movie based on the novel by New Bern, N.C., writer Nicholas Sparks, at 22847 N.C. 12. It is the northernmost house on the ocean-front on Hatteras Island, located in the Mirlo Beach subdivision at the end of Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge.

According to the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau, the Serendipity house (called The Inn at Rodanthe in the movie) still stands, although some sand has been pushed up to protect it.

The home was threatened by ocean waves even when the film crew was shooting there in 2007.

Soon after the film wrapped shooting I talked with assistant location manager, Craig Rogers, who said a storm came up the first few days after they got there and three to four feet of water breached the home completely washing away the stairs and ladders cast and crew used to get inside.
