This was our second year visiting the Castle. As my friend and I were walking up to the hotel she commented, "We home!" Truly we must have been because when we walked into the office Ronnie greeted us with a very sincere, "Welcome home!" Excellent breakfast and don't forget a fresh baked cookie in the evening. Can't wait to come... More

On a road trip up the east coast, we only had time for one night on Ocracoke Island. The Castle on Silver Lake was the only place we could find that would allow us to stay for less than one night, and so allowed us to experience the Outer Banks, at least for a short time. I wish we'd been... More

We stayed in the Lighthouse Suite and was very beautiful and roomy had the deck all to ourselves for a breathtaking sunset..bicycles are available and breakfast was amazing. I believe we had a ghost in our room as well. We had the bedroom door shut when we went to bed and was wide open in the morning. Even made a... More

This was our first trip to Ocracoke and we stayed in one of the villas (Shell Castle A). The villa was spacious, clean, and had everything that we needed (washer/dryer, central air, spa tub). The kids enjoyed swimming in the pool and the location was within walking distance to shops/restaurants. Best part of Ocracoke was the beach...enjoyed shelling, walking in... More

Awesome place on the "quiet side" of the harbor in the village of Ocracoke. Location is great, within easy walking distance (5 mins) of restaurants, cafes and bars on the louder side of the harbor, but situated in an idyllic setting. Beautiful grounds, exceptionally well maintained. Clean, cozy rooms and an outstanding breakfast. The hotel keeps the kitchen "open" to... More

Great breakfast, great company. We thought the wood paneling might be weird but it really worked and made you feel like you were in the captains quarters. It is in walking distance to everything and has great views. Ocracoke is glorious and this hotel is the one to beat.

If I could give The Castle no stars, I would! My husband and I planned to spend two days there on our honeymoon. Hurricane Arthur was impending so we called before heading over on the ferry.

I am not quite sure what to say. I have never received a review like this for The Castle. I have relayed this to the innkeeper , and Ronnie will be following up with the staff. I certainly apologize on behalf of The Castle for the way you say you were treated at breakfast. There is never an excuse for... More

Since discovering Ocracoke 18 years ago, I've stayed in a dozen different places on the island. But, the Castle has spoiled us forever. It's the ONLY place we'll stay for our annual Ocrafolk weekend. From the moment you step in the door, it feels like home. By 6:30am, the sweet aromas of breakfast fill the rooms. The sausage is amazing!!!... More
