About meg errickson

My family and I live here in Nags Head. My husband works at a local restaurant, The Red Drum Tap House and Grill. This restaurant has wonderful food and a great beer selection. I have an aromatherapy business and get to stay at home with our two sons. We love going to the beach, sound, Jockey's Ridge, and Nags Head Woods. I believe the fall is my favorite time of year here at the beach. The weather is great and it's not so crowded.

meg errickson purchased this house in 2007

Why meg errickson chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

This property is wonderful for couples and folks that just want to get away. This house is off the beaten path and just a short walk to the beach. It has a warm feeling and is a great place to stay in and cook, with a fully equipped kitchen.

What makes this house unique

Located beneath my aromatherapy business. This makes your vacation a perfect time to explore the wonderful benefits of essential oils and aromatherapy.

Neat and tidy getaway

  • 4 of 5

The accommodation was just right for two. Cool and comfortable during a very hot spell. Well equipped for our purposes. Once you figure out the "on demand" hot water system there's plenty of hot water. This would be a great location for runners because of the proximity to the Nags Head Woods trail. We enjoyed our stay very much.

A perfect quiet beach getaway for two!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our beach getaway at the Garden Cottage. It was an easy 10 minute walk to the beach and had everything we needed. Nice kitchen, comfortable living and dining area, pleasant outdoor spaces (including an outdoor shower!) Made us feel like we were one of the lucky locals who get to live in OBX year round. Bonus that there's a great ice cream store as well as a coffee shop between the cottage and the beach.

Clean cozy home!

  • 5 of 5

Fell in love as soon as we walked through the door. This was a very accommodating home! Beatiful kitchen nook with great space for preparring home cooked meals. Comfortable lounge chairs for rainy days and located in a friendly neighborhood to add! A hiking trail and park two blocks away and just 4 blocks from beach access. This was a perfect place for a small family or husband and wife getaway. Also, meg is beyond accomadating for your needs!

  • 4 of 5

Such an idyllic getaway setting. Very open yet private at the same time. I really enjoyed staying there. Only complaint was water pressure being a little low which I had already expected from previous reviews.

Cute house ocean was very blue

  • 3 of 5

Good area

Cute house, very clean, very cozy, almost felt like I was at home.

Short drive or walk to the Beach.

Bed was comfortable

Only complaints:

The shower inside the house had very low pressure and the water didnt stay warm long

The outside shower behind the house had hard pressure and the water stayed warm through out showering.

So we showered outside the whole weekend.


The business above the rental hours are supposed to be 10 am - 5

Friday night first night in the vacation home

I want to say around 8 pm we were laying in bed watching a movie and we heard something drop and hit the floor upstairs.

Then shortly afterwards someone rang the door bell and there was a woman at the door asking for a lady that works upstairs

I contacted the owner of the rental property and she said the lady upstairs would be leaving shortly

Will it's kinda hard to enjoy your hunnie moon when you have people talking above you.

So we left and drove around for an hour or so then came back to the house and the lady that was upstairs had left.

The owner of the property offered me the option to check out at 12:30 instead of 11 for the mishap.

Great location , quiet and easy to find.

  • 3 of 5

Overall we had a good stay. A few things we would suggest. The mattress was pretty unbearable for even just the three nights we stayed. The front and rear doors need some curtains for privacy because you can see right in . The floor is creaky and noisy and caused our baby to be woken up often , and overall we found the house to be unclean , specifically the floors and the walls. Lots of dust and dirt. The floors were not good for a 9 month old to crawl on as they are real slate tile. The kitchen is small but nice . Tvs are out of date and selection is limited. The shower is small and the bathroom has little to no counter space. There's not tub, we bathed our baby in the sink. There's no real outdoor area. Dryer and washer are outdated and the dryer does not catch lint so don't bother doing your laundry in it. The store above us we never heard a sound from and it was nice and peaceful. The neighborhood is nice and it's close to all the shops and food. Owner was nice and was very great with communication. Other than the floors and the mattress we enjoyed our stay and for the price and flexibility it was awesome. If you don't have a crawling baby this joint is for you.
