  • Incredible House

    "This house had everything you could need. The location of this property was perfect. The beach was not crowded and the walk was short. The ferry and launching port for fishing was in walking distance as were restaurants and groceries. The house was the perfect size and the pool, hot tub, and ping pong table were great after full days of fishing. My family and I are planning on returning for future trips and would recommend this home to all."

  • outstanding time

    "Just a note to let you know how much we enjoyed out time at your home. We have been going to Outer Banks for the last 5 years, and this is the first time the kids didn't keep asking what are we doing next. They had plenty to keep them happy. We made use of everything there and enjoyed all of it. The highlight of the week, we were all out by the dock fishing and two members of our family had taken the canoe out right out in front of us, when 5 dolphins appeared and circled the boat twice and then went on there way. The kids loved it. Thanks again for the use of your home. Shiffletts from Shenandoah, Va"

  • Paradise on earth!

    "I was looking for a vacation spot for my family to enjoy spending time together. I found "A Stone's Throw" and I am hooked! We love the privacy, but also love the short walk to the beach & the sound! Let's face it, the sunrise & sunset over the water is calling to all of us! One of my favorite sites is watching the pelicans fly in formation over the ocean! I love sharing a respect for nature with my children & grandchildren! The birds, crabs, and wild horses are all around the area. We even saw a deer in the woods next to the house. The house is amazing & perfect for our family. The top level has a kitchen built to accommodate a big family. We had 11 & could have easily fit more around the table & counter. The sitting room on the top floor was spacious. We loved the top deck because it was safe for the baby to toddle around & perfect for the big & small children to blow bubbles. This level also has a master bedroom with a wonderful bathroom complete with a jacuzzi tub! The king sized bed was perfect for a 3 year old, a 2 year old, & a 1 year old to have a dance party on when a storm came and they couldn't play outside! The middle floor has a comfy sitting room & my husband's beer fridge. We can also squeeze a gallon of juice in there for the babies staying on that level. Three nice bedrooms are on this level & (drum roll please) another jacuzzi tub! One bedroom has it's own private bathroom! The deck on this level holds the glorious hot tub! This deck, unlike the top deck, has stairs to the ground! We used baby gates to keep the kids & dogs in! The bottom floor has a king bed & bunks & another full bathroom. Guess what, another sitting room! I loved being able to just pull the car under the carport & just unloading into the house without dealing with the steps after driving all day! We still were able to enjoy the pool in September. The kids found the toys & had fun playing & learning to swim. We found our paradise on earth & will be returning for at least 2 weeks every year! As we have gotten older, we have found that it gives us more time to relax before facing the drive home. Matt & Sue are the best at making the trip feel heavenly. If you need anything, they are a phone call away. I always spoke with Susan & she will bend over backwards to make your stay wonderful! The deposit is returned quickly & fairly. It is wonderful to meet people who are kind & honest! I feel a friendship has developed between us because of the kindness in their heart! Blessings"

  • 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!"

Northern Coast & Outer Banks Travel Tips

The Outer Banks is a glorious stretch - 200 miles, to be exact - of barriers islands and peninsulas along the North Carolina coast. Though it boasts magnificent beaches, there’s plenty to do here year-round.

What to Do

The options are nearly endless in the Outer Banks.

- Take a hike at the Fort Raleigh National Historic Site on the northern end of Roanoke Island and visit the beautiful Elizabethan Gardens - a memorial to the first colonists.

- Immerse yourself in the history of flight at the Wright Brothers National Memorial and Museum in Kill Devil Hills, just south of Kitty Hawk.

- Visit the North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island to feed stingrays, pet an alligator, learn about sea turtle rescues and be wowed by the largest group of captive sharks in North Carolina.

- Go Kayaking or take stand up paddleboarding lessons in Kitty Hawk Bay from Kitty Hawk Kites or Kitty Hawk Surf Company.

- Do something extreme at Jockey’s Ridge State Park. There are awesome sand dunes here - if you know how to sand-board, get a permit and come here between October 1 and March 31. You can also take hang-gliding lessons from Kitty Hawk Kites and soar over Jockey’s Ridge, or go windsurfing in the shallow Roanoke Sound.

- Play a game of golf at any of the excellent courses, from the Currituck Club up in Corolla all the way down to Nags Head Golf Links.

What to See

The Outer Banks offer miles of scenic beauty and historic treasures.

- See the many historic lighthouses on the coast. Make sure you have your walking shoes on when you climb Cape Hatteras Lighthouse on Hatteras Island - it has 248 stairs on an iron spiral staircase, the equivalent of climbing 12 stories! After all of your work, you’ll be rewarded with a stunning view of the Atlantic. You can also visit the Ocracoke Lighthouse on Ocracoke Island at the very southern point of the Outer Banks, or head to the northernmost point to learn the sordid and mysterious history of the Currituck Beach Lighthouse in Corolla.

- Visit the Roanoke Settlement Site, the first English colony in the New World and learn about the mysteries of The Lost Colony. It’s an educational experience with games and woodworking to show what life was like back then. You can also visit and board a replica of the Elizabeth II, one of the boats that arrived in the New World in 1585. There’s plenty of activities for both kids and adults to enjoy here. In the summer, the play “The Lost Colony” is performed to educate and entertain.

- Check out the views from Jockey’s Ridge and Jennette’s Pier, both in Nags Head. Sunsets here are simply unmatched.

Events

There are plenty of festivals in the Outer Banks that harness its unique heritage and location. Check out the Bluegrass Island Festival, a newer addition to the fall lineup held the first weekend in October. It features Bluegrass by traditional artists as well as younger revival artists. Don’t forget to come for the homey Southern-style cooking!

The Outer Banks Seafood Festival is another fest celebrating coastal heritage. It’s held for one weekend in mid-October every year in Nags Head across the Roanoke Sound. Aside from enjoying various local seafood and cooking demonstrations, visitors can participate in the Fish House Olympics, including a Mullet Toss - the fish, not the hairstyle - and crab races. There’s also live music and a Dock & Dine event hosted by The Dunes Restaurant.
