Car: Not Necessary

We front the beach road in the historic section of old Nags Head. Our cottage and many of the others are 75+ years old, so this area will provide the 'old school' beach experience!

We are only 100 yards from 2 beach access points. And Tortuga's Lie, the best and most fun restaurant in the OBX, is only 6 doors away! The Nags Head Pier is a quarter mile away and the Lucky Tavern is a great sports bar that's only 250 yards away from cottage.

This area is also in the area known as the Nags Head Gallery Row Arts District with several galleries within 2 miles of our cottage.

Of course, the 'bypass' is only 4 streets over and offers every shopping, eating, and recreational imaginable for you and your family.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Kelly and Tom Griffin live in Richmond, VA with our 2 daughters, 5 and 8. Tom's a huge lover of surf fishing, and we are both life-long OBX fans....and this is our little dream cottage -- welcome!

Why the Owner Chose Nags Head, NC, USA:
We purchased the cottage in 2012 from Matthew Norman, a renowned local artist who actually ran his art studio from this very cottage. We fell in love with it instantly, and the cottage is decorated with many original works done by the former owner.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Old Nags Head charm, 100 paces to beach, surf fishing, hot tub, outdoor shower, pet-friendly, fenced-in backyard with grass and landscaping, covered front sitting porch, and 8 doors down from Tortuga's restaurant!
