About Ellen or Russell Grant
Been off and on Ocracoke since I was a child. Growing up there in the summers. Have many friends there and spend as much time as I can on the island. I live in a small farming community and am also a farmer. Would like to retire to Ocracoke someday...

What makes this Bungalow unique
We tried to make it similar to a nice hotel room to be familiar to everyone.This place is close to everything. If you like visiting Ocracoke you know about the local restaurants and bars. Golf carts are popular and for rent everywhere. Bike or clam just off the boat ramp by the ferry landing or fish off the beach.

Cozy and local.
Great visit in October! The apartment was just fine, tho a bigger fridge would have been nice. Mattress was soft. Convenient parking. And easy walking to everywhere!
It is comfortable for two people. Not luxurious but very nice.
Perfect for a quick getaway
We really enjoyed staying at The Charter Room for two nights with our two Labradors for a quick anniversary getaway. The place was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the hardwood floors made cleanup easy. The kitchen has everything you need (coffee pot, toaster, dishes, pots, etc).
I would recommend bringing a cooler of some sort (as we did) for cold beverages to keep in the truck/on the deck, since the fridge is hotel size and won't hold much more than leftovers (not a bad thing, just good to be prepared with a cooler).
From a woman's perspective, it would be nice to have the bathroom mirror mounted on the same wall as you face the sink instead of on the side wall to the left (it would make getting ready so much easier), but it was still definitely manageable. Just a suggestion!
The only other minimal con would be that it was slightly noisy from the other side of the house that The Charter Room is attached to, especially first thing in the morning (mainly just able to hear footsteps, shutting doors, muffled talking, etc). Granted, we are used to having no neighbors or noise whatsoever, so I'm sure folks who are used to having close neighbors or living in an apartment would not really notice the noise. But for the great price, we did not mind a little noise!
The location of The Charter Room was amazing! We were able to walk to everything in town, which was great for us.
Overall I would highly recommend staying here and would give The Charter Room 5 stars all day! Thank you again for letting us stay in your home!
Perfect for a place to crash! Clean!
Exactly as advertised: a comfortable place to crash and clean up after a day on the island. Cool and comfy in the heat and dry and cozy in the rain. Much more spacious than anticipated, perfect for a us as a couple with a lovable lab.
Cute little bungalow tucked away!
Unfortunately we came during the power outage and didn't get to fully take in all the beauty this little bungalow had to offer. We will definitely keep it as a place to try and rebook when we get to take our next trip back to Ocracoke.
VERY ENJOYABLE STAY
We really enjoyed our stay in the Charter Room. This was the first beach vacation that we did not stay at a hotel. When booking in the future, I will always look here first from now on. There was plenty of room for two people and two dogs. There was a kitchenette so we could make meals, but also so many good restaurants a short walk away. It was in a good location to take the dogs for a walk without having to worry about traffic. The bed was comfortable and there was good natural light. We had our own parking space, so we wouldn't have to worry about finding one. If we return to Ocracoke, I would definitely stay here again. A fantastic three night stay. Highly recommended.
No need to drive anywhere. Walk or bike wherever you need to go. Bar hop, gift shop, ice cream, or go to the beach.
