We stay at the Thurston House Inn every time we go to Ocracoke. Its central location allows you to walk to almost everything, but it's quiet enough that you can sleep late or take an afternoon nap without being disturbed. Donna is an incredibly friendly and gracious host. Breakfast is out of this world. The fig cake is excellent --... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying here recently, for 4 nights. Check in was easy, room was ready with the door open and key on the bureau. We stayed in an upstairs king room in the annex, and it was spacious and comfortable. Just outside the door is a small sitting area and fridge for 2 rooms... More

This Inn was a lucky find. I was travelling with my teenage son and we wanted to stop in Ocracoke for a few days but the few "larger" hotels were not available so we booked the Thurston Inn on a local recommendation that it "would not disappoint". Indeed it did not disappoint. The Inn is clean; well run and very... More

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

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.
