  • Perfect Weekend

    "First time to this Island. Lived in NC all our lives. Cannot believe i have been missing out on this beautiful place. Great cottage. Very quiet and peaceful. Our pets were in heaven. If you come here, you must take a ferry ride to the lighthouse and Shackleford Banks. Beautiful! And the museum was a great experience. We will be back!"

    "Our family stayed in this Beautiful quaint cottage for the past several years and Absolutely LOVE IT!! The entire home is so inviting and the view of the water is spectacular. It was a wonderful location for my three small children. I can't remember the last time I had such a relaxing and unique vacation. Our family felt like we were on our own little island, however we were just a few minutes away from all the great restaurants and shops. Also, my husband loves to fish so I could not think of a better place for us to be. We look forward to this trip every year! Can not say enough how much we enjoyed our stay."

  • Perfect Getaway

    "My husband and I came down for a weekend stay and were lucky enough to stay at Lookout Lady. The cottage is so cozy and comfortable with absolutely amazing views of the water. Even though the weekend was cool and overcast, we thoroughly enjoyed sitting out on the dock and the back patio. Even though we had come to see the reenactment at Fort Macon, we ended up spending most of our time in the cottage and relaxing. We enjoyed breakfast at the nearby Captain's Choice and an amazing lunch at the Fish Hook and were only about 20 minutes out of Beaufort to enjoy the evening. The caretaker Ken and owner Ron were so nice and helpful that we will definitely be staying here again!"
