We love the staff of the Ocracoke Harbor Inn. We have been with them the passed four or five years. Our first trip to Ocracoke, we stayed in the little cottage, "teach's Treasure" for a four night girls' trip. And what a treasure it was! Then on our three following trips, we stayed on the 2nd floor of the Inn... More

The view of crystal lake is the best part, the proximity to various stores and... More

We stay here every time we go to Ocracoke -- sometimes twice a year. It's clean, comfortable, conveniently located and has a great view of the harbor. The breakfast is good. The WiFi adequate. But the best part is sitting on the little balcony or out by the pier. The staff is friendly and helpful.

We had some friends visiting us from England and we all decided that 3 days in Ocracoke would be a great way for them to finish their busy vacation. It didn't disappoint. We stayed at Morning Star and loved it. It was clean, well appointed and really well equipped. We would highly recommend this house and plan on bringing some... More

We enjoy the time we spend at the Inn as much as anything else we do OI. All of the staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are lovely; the view is beautiful. We hate to leave and spend the year dreaming of our return.

Staff was great, available but not bothersome. Continental breakfast was good--being beside the dock and harbor offered great views while watching the fishing boats prepare for their morning trips. Having the ferry boats just on the other side of the lake, which is close was a big plus. Also, the traffic on this end of lake was minimal compared to... More

We love the Ocracoke Harbor Inn and have stayed there once a year for about 5 years now. The view of the harbor is outstanding and we spend hours sitting in the Adirondack chairs watching the ferries come and go and reading and relaxing. We always stay in a second floor room to have a great view and have always... More

We arrived before the standard checkin time after a 6 hour trip. The attendant was very nice and helpful. She said our room was ready and allowed the early check-in. We booked a second floor harbor view. The room was very clean and fresh. It had no damages or repair issues. We were thoroughly happy with the accommodations and enjoyed... More

This is my first visit to Ocracoke and I've lived in NC over 40 years! The ferry ride to Ocracoke was the ushering in of relaxation! Currently, I am sitting on the dock in front of the harbor across from the Ocracoke Harbor Inn and I couldn't be anymore satisfied. The scenery is beautiful, the weather is gorgeous, and the...

For all the boaters out there, this is the place to be easy to get in and out on your boat and a place to clean your fish. We come every year to the same place and get the same rooms perfect location with a view.
