We needed a room for 2 nights at the last minute. They put us in a one bedroom condo with a discount and for the next night moved us into the actual house part. Both rooms were exceptional and the service was wonderful. They make you feel very welcome and apart of the island. The breakfast was delicious and unique....

This is an awesome place to stay at. We were welcomed very warm and they firstly showed us around the lovely house. It is really old and charming. There is food and drinks (water, tee, coffee) available for free all day. Free internet and bikes are available too. Its very in the middle of everything and very calm. We really...

We stayed in the Lighthouse Suite for our anniversary. We loved our stay there - clean, great staff and delicious breakfasts! I was a little nervous about there not being a door to lock. We did have one guest make his way through the suite to get to the roof top deck but other than that, no problems. We hope...

This is a great place to get away, and the rooms are nice, and the staff is great. Although is was rainy during our stay, we still had a great time shopping and laughing, with my sister, and friends. This was my second time here, and I would highly recommend.

Our group of 19 cyclists had been pedaling the Outer Banks, and were fortunate enough to stay at The Castle. This is certainly one of the best B&B's I've ever stayed in. The manager, Ronnie, was so helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. We were within walking distance of most everything in "downtown" Ocracoke--restaurants, shopping, entertainment, boat...

This is a unique historic property across the street from the beautiful Ocracoke Harbor. There are eleven rooms in the main house, and villas for rent next door. I recommend the main house because you can't get breakfast if you stay in the villas, and you definitely don't want to miss the breakfasts. The people who work here are truly...

My family and my brothers stayed in the main house. Both he and I are not necessarily your typical B&B patrons. We both enjoy the privacy of a hotel most of the time. But, the Castle was perfect because you could still have your privacy while enjoying the other aspects of a B&B. As others have stated, nothing fancy about...
