About Tom Stephenson
After years of vacationing in the Outer Banks, Bill and Elaine Stephenson purchased what came to be known as 'Poppy's Cottage' in 1985. Bill had retired from 45 years service with the Newport News Shipyard and was ready for retirement and fishing. They shared their beach home with family and friends for many years. Elaine was known far and wide for her homemade crab cakes and pound cake. Bill caught the crab and fish and Elaine cooked and loved nothing more than looking on as family and friends enjoyed her hearty fare. Elaine passed away in 1998 and we lost 'Poppy' in 2012. Their children and grandchildren plan to enjoy 'Poppy's Cottage' for many years to come and hope you will enjoy it too. While staying at "Poppy's" you will be in our home at the beach not just another rental.

Why Tom Stephenson chose Kill Devil Hills
Poppy's family loves coming to their home in Kill Devil Hills. Here are just a few of the many things you can enjoy while staying here . . . Poppy's Cottage is close to everything on the Outer Banks!! There is a very, very short drive to several great beach access areas. After you enjoy the beach, take a stroll to the community gazebo on Bay Drive and watch the sunset. This is one of our favorite things to do - - best sunsets ever!! The Cape Hatteras Light House is just over an hour's drive to your south on Highway 12 and the Bodie Island and Currituck Lighthouses are even closer. The Wright Brothers Memorial is just down the street as are many famous Outer Banks eateries. The famous big sand dune JOCKEY'S RIDGE is just down the road in Nags Head and, after a sandy climb, offers the best view of this beautiful island. If fishing is your thing, you have just a short drive to Pirate's Cove or Oregon Inlet where you can charter a boat and bring home all the fish you can eat. If golf is your thing. there are a ton of nearby courses for the novice and low handicappers :) You can't go to the beach without playing putt-putt, eating ice cream or maybe taking in a movie. All of these activities are close by and easy to access. Additionally, the local Food Lion is just down the road too.
What makes this Cottage unique
Let 'Poppy's Cottage' be your home away from home while you are vacationing in the Outer Banks. There is nothing better than sipping your favorite beverage on the front porch or peeling some steamed shrimp on the picnic table and feeling the cool beach breeze on your face.
The house was very comfortable for the 4 of us. We covered a lot of ground doing ancestry research. Enjoyed the many restaurants in the area. All the owner’s notes were very helpful.
Very homey, like staying at your grandparent’s cottage.
Everything was as expected. The beds and furniture were all very comfortable and was perfect for our family of 4.
Thanks for the nice comments! Glad you enjoyed your stay in the OBX at Poppy''s Cottage.
Poppy's cottage was a great value providing everything we needed for a comfortable home away from home. I spent the mornings surfing at the Hayman St access and we played at the S. Soundside St beach with our toddler and baby. We were very happy with Tom's help with all of our needs! We will definitely recommend to friends and family in VA.
Great location, close to everything you might need, even has a beach access close by. The house is comfortable and great for enjoying time with family!
Thanks for the nice comments! Glad you enjoyed your stay at Poppy's Cottage in the OBX.
Super cute, and cozy home. With all the ammenties needed! Definitely be back!
It was our first time in OBX, and enjoyed every minute of it. The outside showers, and sandbox were perfect for our toddler. Perfect location, next to everything! Will definitely be back!!
Thanks for your comments! Glad you enjoyed your stay at Poppy's Cottage while vacationing in the OBX.
A very comfortable home with a relaxing atmosphere.
If you are a Nags Head/Kitty Hawk regular visitor, you have an idea of what to expect in a home in those communities. "Poppy's Cottage" is a perfect blend of that Beach community living style. The Living room is just off the dining area that is adjacent to the kitchen... so when the weather is bad ...or during evening family time... everyone can be in the same general area... but not on top of each-other. The seating around the living room is plentiful & comfy... great for watching movies or TV. The deck seating is also plentiful, and has a roof over it....
The Two Queen beds are really comfortable, and the twin & bunks fine as well.
We enjoyed our week.... and will consider this home again next year.
Thanks for your comments and glad you enjoyed your stay at Poppy's Cottage.
