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! 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.

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...
