The cottage is in our backyard with its own street and parking. We built this little cottage to live in while we built our house. We've finished the interior and exterior with some classic reclaimed materials. The exterior is finished with hand-split cedar shake reclaimed from an older home here on Ocracoke, and pine, that was reclaimed from the pony pens after hurricane Isabelle had her way. The interior walls are finished with beadboard reclaimed from an old hardware store in Winterville, NC and barn wood from a tobacco curing barn and a pack house in Winterville, NC. Hardwood floors and Oak cabinets.
It features an open design with a common kitchen and living area, which makes it very comfortable for two. The sleeping loft is up a ladder so, for those of you not as nimble as you once were, there is a futon, that sleeps two, in the den area. The outdoor shower is a must for any beach cottage, built from wood reclaimed from the pony pens. There is also a shower indoors. This is a very unique space that we love and we hope that you will too. This cottage rents sunday to sunday. Children 12 or under can be negotiable in addition to the 2 adults. Renters are responsible for their own linens...bed and futon are a double size. We have only 1 parking space available.

About the owner: We are Kevin and Laura Hardy. My wife Laura owns Stillwater Spa and Wellness here on Ocracoke. I am a self-employed carpenter and builder of the cottage. We have lived on Ocracoke for 16 years and absolutely love it.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Ocracoke has 14 miles of wide open beaches with no building on them a short drive away. We provide two bicycles for you to explore the village, with a rich historical heritage. A lighthouse built in 1823 is right around the corner. There are lots of shops, restaurants, and pubs. Fishing opportunities are vast, with calm inshore or goin' for that big one off shore.
