With our Villa rental we also have use of a beautiful pool and there are also many bicycles to choose from. Ronnie is the sweetest lady to have waiting at the front desk to welcome us. Just left the... More

The B&B is wonderful. The staff is friendly. The breakfast was for a king and queen. The rooms are cozy and filled with antiques. Loved climbing the stairs to take a view from widows walk. A beautiful sight to behold!! At pier side you could sit and watch the sun set. Ocracoke is a magical place!!

Great attention to the small touches that make B&Bs memorable. Very pleasant staff, clean comfy rooms and delicious breakfast. You feel like you're staying at your grandparent's beach house, complete with the smell off coffee, bacon and pancakes drifting upstairs in the morning. Would highly recommend to guests on the older and younger side. Walking distance to everything in town.

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

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.

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.
