For Phase 2 of our honeymoon my husband took us to The Cove. The whole honeymoon was a surprise to me and when we arrived at The Cove it was overwhelming and I found myself holding back tears. It was a beautiful setting Erin was there when we arrived and showed us around and told us where everything was and made us feel welcome and right at home. She took us upstairs, we stayed on the Sunrise side in the Pamlico Suite. The door is at the top of the steps set away from the other rooms and inside it was a taste of heaven. There's a front deck overlooking the street and front of the house with views of the sound and you could watch the parasailers above the tree line. Mosquitos were out with a vengance, but I think our deck must have been high enough they didn't bother us one bit up there. There was a beautiful sitting area, the bureaus and furniture was perfect, the four post bed was beautiful, there was a big closet, nice desk and with all this the room was still very spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was very nicely decorated there were towels just for the beach and robes for after relaxing in the big jacuzzi tub. They have the internet and it worked great -- most places say they have internet, then when you arrive they give you some bad excuse like it's down right now or it must be bogged down but they have a great set-up and we were able to get on and cruise and make our plans for each day. As far as the hosts Erin and Chad I'm not sure we could say enough. They went way above and beyond to make us feel comfortable, at home and... well... they spoiled us! Breakfast was great every morning, I'm a picky eater and some of the things I wouldn't ever have picked off a menu but I tried everything and ended up enjoying it all -- even the cheesy grits! I also may add that Erin went well out of her way to work with my husband to get this beautiful arrangement of flowers imported on to the island and in our room for me when we arrived. I love to go leisurely bike riding and this is surely the place to do it. We took the bikes out and were able to explore off "the beaten path" and found there are wonderful things to explore on the island. There's an outside shower at The Cove perfect for rinsing the sand off after a day on the beautiful beaches. In closing if you visit Ocracoke this is the place to stay, it has the best location, amenities, and value. We hope to stay there again sometime soon.
