The views from the top deck are breath taking and the shops and places to eat around are amazing aswell.

This house has everything and more and my family and I loved every moment of our vacation in the outer banks thanks to this house and we will be back!"

  • Peaceful oasis

    "My family and I came here looking to purchase the inn. The owner is extremely sweet and has put a lot of work into this location. The back yard is huge with tons of space to relax. Each room is unique and the location is fantastic. The kitchen is large and the owner has thought of many conveniences for his guests. We had a serious family emergency that has pushed back our plans to move to OBX, however, I strongly recommend couples, friends, or singles to stay here. Absolutely wonderful!"
