There are eleven rooms in the main house. Actually, the main house is the ONLY place since the outlying condos and apartments have been spun-off to owners. So, the Castle is now a pure B&B. It is situated right on the harbor with a nice dock on which you can watch the boats coming and going. It is an interesting and pretty house. The rooms are spotless, we have stayed in two of them. The rooms have period furniture and very nice. I suppose it could be noisy, as others have suggested but we haven't been bothered. The breakfast is the best we have had at a B&B.
My gripe, if there is any, is price. With tax our bill was $175. Thats steep for out of season. But we are on an island, where everything is more expensive. Am not sure what other places charge but I would bet the Castle is the most expensive place on the island. Anyway, do go to Ocracoke, it is a unique place and stay at the Castle. But bring money.
