Property type cottage

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.

Perfect location! Special house with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every detail of this beautiful house! It was so nice to not only be in Ocracoke but to stay somewhere that truly felt like your own "retreat". Such a cute house, comfy beds, great screened porch for crab feasts and morning coffee, great backyard area that is fenced (great with a dog), really nice outdoor shower - and two hammocks! The owner Marsh is so nice and responds quickly. We loved being so close to everything, we just rented a gof cart and each morning was a quick ride to get espresso at the Slushy Stand (and mint choc chip ice cream for our son - vacation perk!). When the sun sets you are a quick walk or ride to the water and it is just gorgeous. The local seafood market is amazing and very reasonable - we loved bringing fish home and grilling in the backyard. We are already planning to come back next year. Everything is so convenient and charming in Ocracoke, everyone is very nice and there is a lot of great history. This was such a great experience for our family and we can't wait to go back. Thank you to the Pierce family for creating such a great escape in Little House By the Ferry.

Clean, comfy and perfect for weekend getaway. We enjoyed the outdoor shower and didn’t even use the indoor shower. Bikes were a nice treat. Total quiet and peace. Thank you for sharing your home. Sherri & Greg

Quaint Cottage to Share Amazing Family Memories!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this little cottage that was close to everything! Walking in, we immediately felt comfortable and at home with the welcoming decorations. The kitchen and living room are in one open area that allowed us to maximize our family time together. We enjoyed playing board games at the kitchen table and watching movies together after long, fun days at the beach. We made so many great family memories here in this cottage on our favorite island.

The kitchen was well stocked with all the needed essentials to prepare delicious fish dinners every night. The kids loved the bunk beds and my husband and I were very comfortable in the Queen. As promised the outdoor shower had amazing water pressure! The only thing that could have been improved was the indoor shower which needs some updating.

We cannot wait to come back to Ocracoke next year and would love to stay in this cottage again!

Ocracoke Gem

  • 4 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our time at the little cottage by the ferry. The charming cottage provided comfortable sleeping spaces and a large common area for our family to enjoy hanging out together. We really appreciated having the bikes available to us to explore the island, as well as all the beach equipment to enjoy time at the beach. This was the ideal setting for a relaxing summer vacation!!
