I have stayed at the Tunnell Farmhouse twice this year. It is a very convenient stopping point in traveling from central NC to Ocracoke, allowing me to catch the 9:00 AM ferry without having to get up too early. It has everything one needs in an overnight stay. Good TV, fitness room, great magazines and books, cleanliness, private bathrooms, and comfortable beds. Dick and Sandra Tunnell, the owners who live across the road, welcomed me to their 300-plus acre farm, shared interesting history, and gave good directions to a really good restaurant. The house is two minutes from the Swan Quarter ferry to Ocracoke (Pat's gas station is one minute away), which was perfect for me. I plan to return within a month.
