I recently had the pleasure of a getaway to this property. This was our first time staying. We were greeted in an authentic island style. We were given a tour of the property and settled in. Our lighthouse suite was clean, spacious and had amazing views from every window.

Thank you so much for your review! We are so glad you appreciated what we think makes us special. Ocracoke isn't for everyone--but we love guests that "get it." It makes our job worthwhile. Please come visit us again!

We arrived mid afternoon to find no one at the desk, merely a sign that stated they had left for the day and check the front door for an envelope wih room keys. Well, we had no envelope or keys! So called the emergency number and finally spoke to someone who did indeed find our

Mr. Fritz, I believe you had a poor experience when you visited with us a couple of weeks ago per your review on trip advisor. We normally provide exceptional service, and the majority of our clientele is repeat guests because of our service. We only have two innkeepers, Ronnie Ciccone, the head innkeeper, and myself. The week you arrived I was out of state for a wedding, and Ronnie had an unexpected death in the family, so unfortunately, we had to rely on an off-location employee that week to maintain two different locations. Those were highly unusual circumstances, and I am sorry that it affected the pleasantness of your stay. I do hope you’ll consider giving us another chance, and if so, please contact us directly at 252.928.3505, and we will give you a discount for your next stay as way of apology. Again, I’m sorry your experience wasn’t a better one.

My husband and I enjoyed our 2 night stay here. We were in Jeff’s room which was well laid out and on the second floor. Kelly, the host, was so friendly and helpful for all our needs at the B&B and interests on the island. There were bikes for us to use, a pool to enjoy and

The B&B is located in a great spot and is run by very friendly staff. The rooms are set up somewhat oddly in that there are "public" decks and porches that are attached to the windows of the bedrooms that you are staying in. It's difficult trying to go to sleep and hearing

Our pool is not heated. We do have a website but I cannot enter HTML or website links here. Do a Google search for The Castle B and B on Ocracoke and you will see it.

Yes, each room does have WiFi access. No problem w cell service. But it does depend on your carrier with T-Mobile being the one that does not work here on Ocracoke.
