We had the Plover suite with our own screened in porch. It was very nice. Happy hour is a particularly nice touch as all residents gather over a glass of wine and snacks and recap their day. The jacuzzi bath is very hard to get into and I feel sure takes copious amounts of water. We used it once as... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at The Cove! We hadn't stayed at a B&B since the first child arrived 13 years ago, and it was a treat to experience the comfort and amenities of a Bed and Breakfast again . The breakfasts were delicious, homemade and featured enormous portions (we skipped lunch both days!), and the wine reception was such... More

The building is very nice and every well kept. The bed was extremely comfortable. The staff was very courteous and helpful. This being my first time to the area, they were very helpful in giving advice on things to do in the area.

Ocracoke is scenic, 'laid back', easy to get around (walking, golf cart, bicycle), very nice beaches, fine restaurants, and friendly people. This was our first time staying on the island and the Cove B&B was a great choice. The hosts were genial, the rooms were well kept, the breakfast was tasty and substantial, and the quests (when we stayed there)... More

This was our first visit to Ocracoke and the Outer Banks as we live in Los Angeles. We loved the entire experience. The Cove B&B lies on a quiet, residential street with far off views of the water and sunsets from our private veranda. We stayed in the Pimlico Suite (not really a suite but indeed, a very large room... More

My girlfriend and I visited in May. The service at the Cove was spectacular and both innkeepers were very kind. We particularly enjoyed the delicious breakfasts and wine receptions in the afternoons. I will be returning there for my next trip to Ocracoke.

This no-nonsense B&B is clean, quiet, and professionally run. The breakfasts are delicious and the ambiance reminds me of a friend's summer home in the country. My bed was very comfortable. Although I was there on business, thanks to the peaceful vibe there, I was able to relax as well.

The Cove B&B is an excellent hospitality choice when visiting Okracoke Island. Their breakfasts are awesome and Sharon, the proprietor, is an engaging hostess. The B&B is convenient for walking and biking around the village.

My fiance and I booked a last minute room, the Portsmouth, for Valentines Weekend. Shanon was very kind and helpful, although a tad abrasive at first. Everything was very clean, and even though it never got above freezing, we had a beautiful view. Would definitely go back.

Ocracoke: a small, out-of-the-way island, accessible by ferry has no big stores, just a dozen miles of clean, gorgeous beach.Cove B&B is a great place to stay to enjoy the island. Helpful innkeepers, plenty of beach bikes (the best way tog et around town and the island), great breakfasts, wine and cheese in the afternoon, clean, large, comfortable rooms.

Thank you for your kind words. It sounds like you got the whole Ocracoke experience, and I agree, it is great to hop on a bike and explore. I am still finding fun spots and things to do here. We hope that you can come back and visit with us again, we so much enjoyed your company, you guys were... More
