I recently stayed at the Thurston House while on vacation and it was very delightful to say the least. When I made the reservation I selected them only because they had a King Bed available and the others did not. It turned out to be a good choice because the place is tucked away into the trees, very quiet and... More

This was our first experience at a B&B. We stayed at Thurston House for 2 nights and really had a great time. The food was excellent and the porch swing is the best seat in the house. It was the cleanest place we have ever stayed. No more hotels for us!

My husband and I had such a delightful time at this bed and breakfast. The room was perfectly clean. We enjoyed being in a different house than where breakfast was served so that the mornings we nice and quiet. The bed was comfortable. We never heard any other guest leave or arrive even though they were full to capacity. Breakfast... More

Inn has two separate buildings and we did not stay in the main building. Our room, Sandpiper, was pretty nice and very clean but the WiFi did not reach there. Tried it with two mobiles and one tablet and it just did not work. In fact, we had to get out of the building before the signal was ok. Location... More

I had a wonderful four night stay here! My room was pretty, comfy and cozy, and clean as can be. The breakfasts were yummy-especially the sweet potato pancakes. The location is terrific! An easy walk to everything, yet secluded and peaceful. Talking with Donna was lots of fun. Her famous fig cake is a delicious treat. I wouldn't have changed... More

I was skeptical of staying at a b&b however, The Thurston House Inn was amazing and has set a high standard for b&b's to follow! The owners and family are so sweet! They make you feel right at home and kindly answer any tourist-y questions you may have. Yet, after breakfast is over and everyone is finished chatting, you definitely... More

Thurston house Inn is a delightful bed and breakfast. It is centrally located on rt. 12, in Ocracoke Village, heading to the harbor, in a very convenient location. It was recommended to us by the Visitor’s Bureau, and is listed in the Official North Carolina Travel guide. It is within walking distance to the harbor, numerous restaurants and shops. Thurston...

We stay at the Thurston House Inn every time we go to Ocracoke. Its central location allows you to walk to almost everything, but it's quiet enough that you can sleep late or take an afternoon nap without being disturbed. Donna is an incredibly friendly and gracious host. Breakfast is out of this world. The fig cake is excellent --... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying here recently, for 4 nights. Check in was easy, room was ready with the door open and key on the bureau. We stayed in an upstairs king room in the annex, and it was spacious and comfortable. Just outside the door is a small sitting area and fridge for 2 rooms... More
