The Cove was great. Recommend the Pamlico suite or the other upstairs suite. They are great because it is a room separated from everyone else. no bumping into strangers in the hallway at night. Had its own private balcony with a semi-decent view of the harbor and sunset. Price was fair, about 225 per night considering the full service breakfast... More

We stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. We booked the Pamlico Suite which is the entire 3rd floor of the Sunrise portion of the building. The suite was spacious, clean, and everything we had hoped for. Loved the jacuzzi tub, private balcony, satellite tv, and wi-fi features. They had complimentary champagne waiting for us and I had brought some strawberries... More

Great location on Ocracoke - off the main road thru town, but within short walk or bike ride to all attractions and restaurants. Good view of ocean and lighthouse. Beautiful, spacious bedrooms were spotless and very nice. Deck off of bedroom, and wrap-around screened in porch were great features. B&B has a large stable of bicycles and helmets - allowed...

I cant say much for The Cove but I can speak on the house and location since I had vacationed in the house for 17 years before it became the bed and breakfast it is today. It's a charmer and a beautiful house in a great location. Many wonderful memories in this house and we were devastated when it was... More

The Cove B&B was a wonderful retreat for our 30th wedding anniversary! The Portsmouth suite was the best B&B room we have ever had due to the large space, window views were fantastic and balcony and hottub was perfect. The little extras like robes and champagne were so nice. We will definitely return and recommend to our friends! Thank you... More

Oracoke is the best place on the Outbanks and The Cove was a nice place to stay. Home-like rather than hotel-motel. Accommodations new, very comfortable and the hosts very friendly.

I have been to Ocracoke and stayed in both houses and various other accommodations. I thoroughly enjoyed this B&B. Food was excellent and the wireless service was a plus. The hostesses were lovely and helped with every request. The wine reception was a nice surprise.
