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. The person we spoke to did not seem concerned and encouraged us to come. The next morning when we went down to breakfast we... More

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

Our previous excellent experiences at the Castle led us to book the Castle for ourselves and friends for our wedding in May. Every moment of the weekend ran like clockwork. All our guests were delighted with the Castle. We described our wedding as an extra long beach weekend with a ceremony included. Weather was perfect, food great as always, hosts,... More

This was our return trip to the island. A well kept secret still on the outer banks. The Castle Band B is a wonderful relaxing place with a great accommodating staff. The home cooked daily breakfast is wonderful and your fellow quests add to the overall atmosphere of the Castle. On the national historical register, well worth a visit. We... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Castle. The bikes provided allowed us to get around the island without a car. The staff was so friendly, and made everything about our stay easy and fun. Breakfast was great-one of the best. Don't miss the breakfast casseroles and sausage!
