Guestbook comments from the manager

What a beautiful house! We were here for the pirate festival (ARRRRRG) and stayed some extra days to relax. Got to explore the island , which we never have time to do when we are performing. Weather was wonderful!

Ocracoke is our favorite place to perform. Everyone is so friendly!

I was part of a girls' trip to Ocracoke in April of 2013. We rented The Morning Star and loved it! It was comfortable and we had every amenity we needed. We loved having coffee on the front porch in the morning and my favorite was the outside shower! It was convenient for walking to the lighthouse, Springer's Point and even to some shops and restaurants. I look forward to coming back to The Morning Star sometime in the near future!
