About Lisa Cooper

I am an artist who has lived on Hatteras with my husband, also an artist, for 39 years. I now continue to live and work on Hatteras by myself. I play guitar and other instruments, sometimes in local venues. My work is part time at a beautiful gallery in Avon called Kinnakeet Clay, where I create various items from slabs of clay that we sell in the gallery.

Lisa Cooper purchased this studio in 1987

Why Lisa Cooper chose Hatteras Island

We bought this property after living here for many years. My husband was an avid fisherman, gardener and painter, and living on Hatteras Island gave him opportunity to do all of these things. We enjoyed the small island community and I am glad to still be living here.

A peaceful little spot for us to relax

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Buxton! The room was a lovely and quiet space for the two of us. The porch outside was perfect for leisurely mornings, sipping coffee and listening to the birds. We were conveniently located to beaches, restaurants and points of interest.

Nice Little Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Perfect spot for a long weekend of sightseeing - Hatteras Lighthouse, Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum, Bodie Lighthouse, Wright Brothers Memorial and you have to stop & talk to Leroy at the Alien house (on the way to Hatteras). Really enjoyed our time there.

Loved It!!

  • 5 of 5

Cozy & peaceful, great little treehouse room!! Very warm & inviting, had all of the necessary amenities. Bed was super comfy. Lisa was even kind enough to make up a small mattress for our 5 yo son to sleep on. We really enjoyed our brief stay there!! We'd definitely stay here again!

A Little Slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Treehouse for Spring Break and what a little gem! Lisa is a gracious host. She is on-site if you need anything, but stays out of the way. The room was so quaint and comfortable. She has paid attention to detail...she even had filtered drinking water with gorgeous hand-made pottery cups. The kitchen had everything listed and worked out fine. The bed was so cozy and comfy! We slept very well. It was one of our most relaxing stays at the Outer Banks to date. We will definitely stay here again!

Lisa is also a wonderful artist...we picked up some of her art at the local gift shops. :)
