About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

45 Mary Ann Drive:

At "Little House by the Ferry" you can relax in hammocks and hear the ferry boats tooting their horns coming and going out of the harbor. Located near Silver Lake Harbor where all the restaurants and shops are located, you will find it easy to stroll or bike from this convenient location.

This charming 3 Bedroom (plus bonus bunk room) 1 Bath cottage has undergone a complete renovation and addition during the Spring of 2009. You will love the professionally decorated cottage decor. There are 2 hammocks for relaxing, a fenced-in dog yard, dishwasher and washer and dryer. While there is only one full bath, there is an exceptional outdoor shower with a star-filled sky above. You will never want to shower indoors again.

The large screened-in porch has vaulted ceilings and big views of open space which makes for a very private setting.

We have bikes, sand chairs, beach umbrellas and boogie boards you are welcome to use.

Most of Ocracoke Island is owned by the National Park Service and there are no cottages located at the beach front. Little House by the Ferry is located in the village about a mile and a half from the beach. If you have a four wheel drive you can drive out on the beach. You can also drive or ride bikes to the life guarded beach and walk over the dunes to the beach.

Our cottage is now on city water which provides great water pressure and makes the our shower absolute heaven!

Maximum of 6 people.

Maximum of 3 parking spaces.

Maximum of 1 pet with $100 Pet Fee. (well behaved please)

We will accept reservations of less than 7 nights during the off-season periods.

IMPORTANT: If you wish to book a reservation for less than 7 nights, please send us an INQUIRY instead of making a RESERVATION REQUEST.

We rent Sunday to Sunday. Check-in time is 3:00 PM and Check-out time is 11:00 AM.

We hope you love "Little House by the Ferry" as much as we do.

Fun time with the family

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, comfortable, and convenient to the ferry. Showering outside under the stars in their outdoor shower is an awesome experience, one of which I took advantage of every chance I could. The home has a lot of beach equipment and plenty of bikes to help you cruse around town. Inside the home there is a fully equipped kitchen, so no need to pack a bunch of that stuff if you plan on cooking. The screened in porch is great for some evening card games with the family and the hammocks outside make for some great naps.

The only slight inconvenience was the need to bring your own linens and towels, but other than that this home is an excellent choice for your stay on the outer banks!

Comfortable,clean and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We spent most mornings on the porch with coffee and watching the birds. The house is so comfortable it is hard to get moving. I particularly enjoyed kayaking while the others explored the island on bikes. We only ate out once because grilling in the yard was just so pleasant. There is plenty of night life but we could not hear a thing which was something we really appreciated. Little house is a quaint island setting with all the amenities of a luxury hotel.

A lovely quiet cornier of the island

  • 5 of 5

The house was cozy, clean and welcoming. I felt like a local for the weekend away from it all. The screened in porch was especially nice for relaxation. The open, wooded lot next door was a special treat. The sound side of the island afforded some spectacular views of the sunset each evening. Looking forward to my return to this special place.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is so charming and comfortable. My wife and I love coming here each year for our "Ocracoke recharge", where we ride bikes, walk to watch the sunsets, eat at the many good restaurant options nearby, check out the museum, and, of course, spend hours beachcombing. Little House by the Ferry is a gem, where we feel completely at home. Its quiet location, off the beaten path, is definitely part of its appeal. We hope to return for many years to come.
