We stayed for two nights and the service could not have been better. The room (Sam's) was spacious with a large jacuzzi bath. Sunsets could be observed from the 'widows walk' on the top floor or on the sun deck across the street. This B&B which is more like an Inn is a great place to unwind on Okrakoke; Breakfast... More

The Castle on Silver Lake is easy to find, opposite the ferry landing on Silver Lake. The setting and inn are first rate, and we enjoyed the sitting area on the water, across the street. The breakfast was one of the best ever, and the Innkeeper was very hospitable and helpful. I would have rated this a "5" but for... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Castle on Silver Lake. We were upgraded to a better room because the room we booked was being repaired. Every part of the experience was excellent! You expect a clean room with a nice bath but where Castle excelled was the many extra amenities provided. There was fresh fruit, snacks, coffee and tea available... More

Two weddings had the town booked up but we got the last room at the Castle on Silver Lake and we had a great weekend. The room was huge with a Queen sized bed and 2 twins. Very clean and well supplied in the bathroom. It was a pretty location facing the harbor with an easy walk around town. Breakfast... More

A wedding on Ocracoke is growing in popularity, especially in the fall when the island is less crowded and prices are lower. It is a special place. I am happy we were able to accommodate you and glad to hear you had a nice stay with us. Our breakfasts are famous, and filling. I liked th fact that you mentioned... More

We loved it, but there were some odd bits. Ronnie gave a lovely welcome / tour. We stayed in Jane's room and the bed was comfy and the facilities fine. Noise was an issue - we were could hear our neighbours next door and above all too easily. In our group of rooms, the thermostat could not be controlled separately... More

This was our first trip to Ocracoke and we were celebrating our anniversary. Staff was warm and soon became friends. Accommodations in Jane's Room were great. Quiet and the view from the roof is the best! Delicious breakfast with Gladys' biscuits, grits and eggs are to die for. Informative and very helpful were Ronnie and Cedra. I would recommend this...

Recently stayed at The Castle, location was good, breakfast was very good, we stayed in Patti's room, wall & doors very thin do not make to much noise in bathroom or everybody knows. There is an air conditioning compressor outside the window that cycled on and of all night, was hard to sleep, was not worth the money.

I am sorry that noise was an issue for you during your stay with us. I am being very honest in saying that I have not heard this particular complaint about Patty's room before and I am not sure what we can do about the AC compressor location but I do feel badly that your sleep was compromised. Next time,... More

This was our second year visiting the Castle. As my friend and I were walking up to the hotel she commented, "We home!"
