First, let's say that Ocracoke is an totally wonderful place to go to. Quaint, pretty, without the commercial giants that we find everywhere else (no McDonald's, no Walmart, no Sonic...), it is a place for the ones who like to be outside the typical touristy places. The Castle on silver Lake is pretty, clean, fun, relaxing an the friendliness of...

Wonderful room, fabulous Jacuzzi tub, and an excellent breakfast - had an amazing stay at the Castle B&B. We sat on the lighthouse balcony and enjoyed wine and cheese we picked up at the local wine store while taking in the view of Silver Lake Harbour. We rode the complimentary bicycles all through town (always the best way to experience...

Thank you for staying at The Castle on Silver Lake and also for sharing your comments here. It sounds like you got the full island experience while you were here. I think bikes are also a great way to get around on Ocracoke island. We will make sure someone checks out those bikes you mentioned. Hope you can come back...

My wife and I decided to swing down to Ocracoke for a night to search for a future vacation location, so we rented the "Net House" villa, suite B, at this Bed and Breakfast. There was no one at the front desk when we "checked in" so I just picked up our key and we walked over to our villa....

We recently visited the Castle in Ocracoke. I wouldn't call it luxurious, but I would call it the best place to stay on Ocracoke. You can't expect marble in the bathrooms (or a bell hop to escort you and your luggage up three flights of stairs) but you can expect a lovely B&B complete with clean, comfortable rooms, a friendly...

My husband and I drove up the NC Coast last year and spent two nights at The Castle on Silver Lake. It was in a great location, the rooms were clean and charming and breakfast was amazing! Ocracoke Island was by far our favorite stop on our trip!
