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

This lovely set of two old homes that have survived hurricanes and other weather for years are inviting and conveniently located. The room are comfortable, the hosts available but not intrusive and the breakfast is the best you'll ever eat, changes daily, and is good by the family, most of whom you meet in this three generation family who still...

We stayed here for 3 nights this past weekend. Breakfast was by far the best part! Homemade by the owner, Donna each morning it was really good! Donna clearly loves her job and her guests. We would stay here again!

Due to Tropical Storm Andrea, the ferry we were supposed to take to Ocracoke was canceled. We immediately called and stated we would not be coming the first night of our trip. The proprietor was very understanding of our situation. Once we arrived, we were greeted and made very comfortable at the bed & breakfast. The room we stayed in... More

We go to Ocracoke every January to "kick back" and have some down time. The Thurston House is one of the few places on the island that is open this time of year. The rooms are very nice: roomy, good beds, and very clean. It's a B&B so you get breakfast. While the coffee is quite good, breakfast is not... More
