Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: After years of vacationing in the Outer Banks, Bill and Elaine Stephenson purchased what came to be known as 'Poppy's Cottage' in 1985. Bill had retired from 45 years service with the Newport News Shipyard and was ready for retirement and fishing. They shared their beach home with family and friends for many years. Elaine was known far and wide for her homemade crab cakes and pound cake. Bill caught the crab and fish and Elaine cooked and loved nothing more than looking on as family and friends enjoyed her hearty fare. Elaine passed away in 1998 and we lost 'Poppy' just last year. Their children plan to enjoy 'Poppy's Cottage' for many years to come and hope you will enjoy it too.

Why the Owner Chose Kill Devil Hills:
Poppy's family loves coming to their home in Kill Devil Hills. Here are just a few of the many things you can enjoy while staying here . . . Poppy's Cottage is close to everything on the Outer Banks!! There is a very, very short drive to several great beach access areas. After you enjoy the beach, take a stroll to the community gazebo on Bay Drive and watch the sunset. This is one of our favorite things to do - - best sunsets ever!! The Cape Hatteras Light House is just over an hour's drive to your south on Highway 12 and the Bodie Island and Currituck Lighthouses are even closer. The Wright Brothers Memorial is just down the street as are many famous Outer Banks eateries. The famous big sand dune JOCKEY'S RIDGE is just down the road in Nags Head and, after a sandy climb, offers the best view of this beautiful island. If fishing is your thing, you have just a short drive to Pirate's Cove or Oregon Inlet where you can charter a boat and bring home all the fish you can eat. If golf is your thing. there are a ton of nearby courses for the novice and low handicappers :) You can't go to the beach without playing putt-putt, eating ice cream or maybe taking in a movie. All of these activities are close by and easy to access. Additionally, the local Food Lion is just down the road too.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Let 'Poppy's Cottage' be your home away from home while you are vacationing in the Outer Banks. There is nothing better than sipping your favorite beverage on the front porch or peeling some steamed shrimp on the picnic table and feeling the cool beach breeze on your face.
