The only stayed one night which worked out since we were there off season in December. Lots of places were closed. Sharon met is, leaving her family at dinner. The room was very clean, mattress firm, small bathroom. Overall nice with screened porch. Breakfast was so-so. French Toast and two pieces of greasy bacon. Coffee ready at 7, breakfast at... More

Spent three nights at the Cove B&B on Ocracoke Island. Our room was spacious and on the top floor; Sharon and her sister (as well as a guest) volunteered to carry our bags all the way up because both my husband and I have bad backs. They recommended restaurants and served wine as well as breakfast. I thought the servings... More

Just returned from our 4 day trip to Ocracoke. Our stay at The Cove B&B was lovely. The B&B is conveniently located near the lighthouse and the shore yet on a quiet street. The accommodations were comfortable and beachy and our private deck had a view of the lighthouse Sharon, the B&B host, was friendly and welcoming. Lots of detail... More

We had a wonderful visit to Cove B&B, and to Ocracoke Island. We were there five days after the island re-opened to visitors after the heavy rains, and everything was open and functioning and welcoming. At Cove the room was very nice, the breakfasts great, and the afternoon wine reception (more than just wine, with great hors d'ourvres) was one... More

We just returned from our trip to Ocracoke, and feel as if we found our new destination Island. We stayed at The Cove B&B, and although the room and location were great, we were not pleased with the host, Sharon. Generally B&B host's are super sweet, nice and accommodating, but we found her demeanor and attitude to be "cold" to... More

Great potential for this B&B. Perfect location, quiet. Guest rooms have minor faults, and common areas approach functional. Amenities are so-so. I have stayed at many B&B's over the past thirty-plus years, in many states and 3 countries. The Cove managers are friendly and helpful, sometimes too much, so that I felt we were all vacationing together. Some of their... More

Good location, and fantastic staff. It's a B&B at the beach so your main attraction is getting out and going to the beach. Great breakfasts and a lot of fun. Ocracoke has miles of beach and very few people. Great place to get away to. Also, close to Hatteras and more surf and beach spots. The town is near by... More

1st time staying at a B & B. Inn keepers were very nice. Breakfast was great and town was within walking stance. Evening reception was good. Second night was fresh clams that the inn keepers gathered themselves from the beach. We expected to hear people in other rooms since it is basically a house. It was actually very quiet and... More
