Donna and her family, who have lived on the island all their lives, bring charm, hospitality and genuine welcome to all of their visitors. We have stayed with them 5 time over the past number of years and will continue to go back. If it's history, a home feeling, good old southern hospitality and food you are looking for you... More

Stayed one night at the Thurston and enjoyed a nice clean room, jasmine covered deck, and a hearty breakfast. Donna and her mom shared local lore and their fig cake. Our room was quiet even with the windows open Convenient location, too.

I had a family emergency come up about five days prior to my stay which forced me to cancel my trip to Okracoke. I emailed the innkeepers right away a couple times via the email address on their website but didn't hear back, so finally I called a couple days prior to my reservation. I explained the situation and asked... More

We have been here several times. Invariably a great experience. The owners are wonderful people; the food is always excellent; and the fig bread.... mmmmmmm. Also, very conveniently located to town. Highly recommended!

My husband and I stayed at Thurston House for a weekend getaway...3 nights. We couldn't have picked a better place. It was super clean, very well decorated, quiet and comfortable. The hosts were awesome and friendly, breakfast was different every day and delicious and fresh baked fig cake was always on the table. They upgraded us to one of the... More

Very comfortable centrally located B&B. Outstanding breakfast with very good coffee. This was our second time staying at the Thurston House and we couldn't have been more pleased. The next time we visit Ocracoke we intend to again stay at the Thurston House.

We stayed at this marvelous gem of a bed and breakfast while motoring down the Outer Banks. Our hosts (mother and daughter) were absolutely wonderful, aimed to fully please. The room was splendid, clean and the bed very comfortable, upscale but not pretentious. The breakfast of biscuits, eggs, ham, toast, coffee, juice, and homemade cake was wonderful. I would definitely... More

We went to Okracoke for a weekend getaway... and it was. The island is absolutely beautiful and perfectly relaxing. The house is very welcoming and the owners and staff are very friendly. I am a coffee snob and it was quite awesome to stay somewhere that actually knew how to brew a good cup. The breakfast was PERFECT and I... More

There are two houses on the property with available parking. One house is older where breakfast is served and the other house called the annex is much newer. I was in the annex and the room was quite beautiful. The sheets are crisp, white, and clean. The bath towels are large. The owner's grandfather owned the place and has been... More
