We had a wonderful stay in "Jeffs" room, and the staff was extremely accommodating, especially Sidra in the morning for breakfast! Make sure you ask her about her Mexican omelet. If you stay in the main house, you can go to the widows walk up top and get a beautiful view of Silver lake for the sunset. Bring wine and... More

I have actually stayed in Jeff's Room and liked it too. I will make sure Sidra sees your review, and thanks for the nice words. "Bring wine and cheese"...that is always good advice. Thank you and please come back to stay at The Castle B&B again. More

Wonderfully quiet place on a beautiful island. The breakfast was amazing. The employees are very friendly and try to make you feel at home. We reserved a few rooms for our adult children and ourselves. All neat and clean. Will definitely go back.

We stayed here for two nights in one of the B&B rooms. The greeting was warm and we got a quick tour of the place. The room was clean and yes a bit dark but if you adapt to that, it is fine. The walls are a bit thin but we didn't find that to be a problem. As someone... More

Researched a place for a single night stay in Ocracoke and came up with the Castle based on reviews and the photos. We ended up in one of the "condos" behind the main building and it was clean and neat but very dark and dated. We had very little interaction with the staff...the key was left for us on the... More

Just so this is clear for people reading this... Guest is referring to the Castle Villas, which are all individually owned. They are NOT referring to the Castle Bed and Breakfast. I am sorry that the condo you rented was not to your liking...if you would let me know which unit it was I would be happy to pass on... More

So just having a family wedding, I knew that we needed some R&R, and the Castle was perfect. We stayed at the Net House (downstairs) and while we didn't get to enjoy the B&B breakfast, our porch was right at the dock. WOW. There's nothing like a couple of coffee sitting in a screened porch, hearing the fish jump. The... More

We needed a room for 2 nights at the last minute. They put us in a one bedroom condo with a discount and for the next night moved us into the actual house part. Both rooms were exceptional and the service was wonderful. They make you feel very welcome and apart of the island. The breakfast was delicious and unique.... More

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.
