The pillows were terrible and when we asked for others we were told that no one else had complained and that the units were individually owned so they could not take pillows form other units. the bed was OK. There was only one face towel and we... More

It is for the one of the Castle Courtyard Villas, which are one, two and three bedrooms villas and individually owned. Guests who rent these villas do have access to the pool and sauna at the B&B, which is... More

My husband and I are here for our anniversary and we love it. We are staying in the lake room which has a beautiful view as well as a huge jacuzzi. They have a very friendly staff and the smells from the kitchen are amazing. Ocracoke oozes with charm and southern hospitality. I could stay here forever.

We returned to The Castle for Memorial Day weekend and had our two sons with us. We stayed in the Harbor Room - which has two twin beds and a full/queen size bed so everyone was comfortable. The innkeepers are friendly and you will never be disappointed with the home cooked breakfast which is provided to guests staying in the... More

Stayed in one of the villas right behind the castle for a weekend getaway to the island. It's in the perfect location. The price is right and service is excellent. Very clean, safe, plenty of room to park, free bike use, etc. Highly recommend and will be back.

This place is amazing. The only bad thing I can say is.... we didn't plan for a longer visit ! The room is small but more that adequate, the staff were so friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was very good. Can't wait to go back.... AND WE WILL.

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!
