This is a great place to get away, and the rooms are nice, and the staff is great. Although is was rainy during our stay, we still had a great time shopping and laughing, with my sister, and friends. This was my second time here, and I would highly recommend.

Our group of 19 cyclists had been pedaling the Outer Banks, and were fortunate enough to stay at The Castle. This is certainly one of the best B&B's I've ever stayed in. The manager, Ronnie, was so helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. We were within walking distance of most everything in "downtown" Ocracoke--restaurants, shopping, entertainment, boat...

This is a unique historic property across the street from the beautiful Ocracoke Harbor. There are eleven rooms in the main house, and villas for rent next door. I recommend the main house because you can't get breakfast if you stay in the villas, and you definitely don't want to miss the breakfasts. The people who work here are truly... More

We were warmly welcomed by Ronnie the Innkeeper who made us feel right at home. We enjoyed the great location, delicious breakfasts, loaner bikes, deck overlooking the water, pool, sauna and the hospitality. Looking forward to coming back again soon.

Very friendly and knowledgable staff with a clean and very nice, very comfortable room. The Breakfast was super. This was our first visit to the island and loved every minute of it.

My family and my brothers stayed in the main house. Both he and I are not necessarily your typical B&B patrons. We both enjoy the privacy of a hotel most of the time. But, the Castle was perfect because you could still have your privacy while enjoying the other aspects of a B&B. As others have stated, nothing fancy about... More

Friendly staff, clean rooms and beautiful setting...what more could you ask for! The rooms are not fancy but are simple and comfortable. Updating the rooms would be a big plus but it's still probably the nicest available on the island.

Came down with two other couples. We stayed in the three bedroom villa. Plenty of room and nice bathrooms. Very friendly staff. Ronnie was very nice during checkin.
