The SHELTER is about 100 yards from Teaches Lair Marina and Grill. You can book your fishing trip or just visit before 4pm to see the days catch. The typical catches are blue marlin, sailfish, dolphin, red drum, wahoo, kings and spanish, bluefish, tuna, and grouper.

The Outer Banks were the first part of the Atlantic to be visited by English settlers, principally Sir Walter Raleigh’s expedition in the 1580’s.Through centuries of isolation the people inhabiting the outer banks have developed a way of life all their own. Hatteras near its southern tip is within 12 miles of the Gulf Stream is known as “Game Fish Junction” because abundance of northern and southern species of fish. It is off Cape Hatteras that the Labrador Current collides with the warm tropical water of the Gulf Stream.

Great place, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 3 nights for a fishing trip. Would have been longer, but the storm (Maria), closed the island. The home is nice and well equipped. The bedrooms are good sized and beds comfortable. The top deck has great view of the marina/sound.

The owner, Amy is great to work with and stayed in touch while we watched the storm to see if we would get there at all. Really enjoyed the place and the trip.

Fantastic property. Very clean and modern.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time walking the beach. 2 minute walk to the beach. Got to see loggerhead turtles hatching after a tropical storm.

Beautiful sunsets over Pamlico Sound.

Pack your clothes, everything else you need is there.

Amy, the owner was great and checked on us after the storm.

We would definitely like to stay there again.

The Shelter is like a fine 25 year old bottle of Scotch!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect Beach Cottage in Hatteras! The location is 1/4 mile from the Ocracoke Ferry and Ramp 55 beach access. The beach is a mere 3 minute walk. A convenient store is across the street as is a very nice Seafood restaurant. Great cottage for a family. We have been going to the Shelter for many years. The Owners are first-class and ensure everything is perfect before your arrival. Now back to my Scotch!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was adorable. It was perfect for our family and the location couldn't be better. It is obvious that the owners have put tremendous care and attention to detail into their beach home. It has so much character! It really felt like a home away from home, not a rental. Thank you so much for allowing our family to rent your home. We will definitely be returning and recommending it to others!
