19. Nights in Rodanthe
Based on the Nicholas Sparks novel, Nights in Rodanthe is about a woman named Adrienne Willis who was betrayed by her ex-husband when he left her for a younger woman. Needing to get away, Adrienne goes on vacation to spend some time as the new innkeeper at a hotel in Rodanthe, North Carolina. She meets a surgeon named Paul who is fighting demons of his own. They help to heal one another, and fall in love. Romance lovers everywhere have swooned about this gorgeous inn on the water, wishing they could have a similar getaway.
In reality, the location was filmed at The Inn at Rodanthe on Hatteras Island, North Carolina. The 6-bedroom inn was originally built in the 1980’s just 500 feet from the Atlantic Ocean. After a lot of concern that it would become damaged during the storm, the house was finally moved further away from the ocean in 2010, but it still has the same magnificent views. So this is great news for fans of the movie who want to go there for a romantic weekend getaway. The only downside is that the going rate is $3,000 to $5,000 per night!
