“In Love”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We loved the Tunnell Farm House!!! Wish we could have stayed longer. We chose this because of the closeness to the Ferry. We arrived late and caught the ferry next morning. Perfect for a family. There was not much for breakfast, but they knew we were there for the ferry. We had coffee, juice and package of sweets. Everything was super!!!

Room Tip: Any-2 downstairs and 1 up.

Didn't used the washer and dryer, but glad to know they were available. Nice screened porch with rocker and swing! Enjoyed the spectacular view of big moon over the wheat field. Felt like home! Plenty of food including milk and juice on our shelf and in the freezer muffins for breakfast.

Room Tip: Liked the large room with twin beds and private bath. Didn't use the washer and dryer but glad...

Access to kitchen is a big plus. And it is convenient to Swanquarter ferry and to wildlife refuges. On the main street into town, ag fields and equipment around it. They seem to prefer hunters as guests instead of birders. Be sure to get a full tank of gas before you come to this region-- the only gas station in town was 50 cents higher per gallon than in the Raleigh area.

The farmhouse is nice and well located to catch the ferry. We never encountered the owners but all correspondence via email was pleasant. The only drawback was the second B in B&B. Although, described as continental which is usually simple, this fell below that expectation. Make your own coffee and small sweet rolls in plastic wrappers in the refrigerator were minimal at best. But if you go prepared with food to cook in the well equipped kitchen all will be fine.

My husband and I found Tunnell Farmhouse B&B to be a quaint place for leisure and rest, with easy access to Mattamuskeet Reserve and the Ocracoke Ferry. Sandra and Dick Tunnell has turned it into a comfortable home away from home. We stayed a couple nights so we could see and photograph the fowl at Mattamuskeet before traveling to nearby Ocracoke for a few days' stay. The farmhouse was well equipped with necessities, a good variety of continental breakfast items, an exercise room and plenty of games and reading material. I was impressed with the time the owners have taken to make it a welcoming and "homey" place. The Tunnells are friendly and accommodating people, and Dick has wealth of knowledge of the history of the area.

The perfect arrangment for people heading to Ocracoke on the Swanquarter ferry, or for birders interested in the many birding loctions nearby. With only three rooms, each with own private bath, this bed and breakfast (do it yourself breakfast in house kitchen) is lovely. You can bike or walk to and around town and Mattamuskeet Wildlife Refuge is a short drive. We will return for fall or winter birding. Historic Bath is also nearby.

This location was perfect as my wife is a birder and we had planned to visit Lake Mattamuskeet, Pocosin Lakes NWR and Alligator River NWR. It was centrally located to these birding hot spots plus it also would allow us to be close to the Ferry when we continued on with our trip to Ocracoke and Hatteras areas. The owners live right across the street and we were actually staying in their original home. The room was very comfortable and it was so quiet and dark that we had no trouble falling into a deep sleep after a long day of walking and birding. The home was beautifully decorated, neat and clean. Full kitchen allowed us to plan our own meals.
