Guestbook comments from the owner

"We've stayed in Laughing Gull-6 for four years--enjoying the quite and private location close to the ocean and many restaurants. The cottage is well appointed with everything needed for a restful and enjoyable vacation. The new owners have added several upgrades—new flooring, kitchen,TV’s. etc. The new interior, pictures and furniture are a true OBX experience. We are already looking forward to our time at LG-6 this Fall. – LeRoys (Sterling, VA.) and Bakers (Georgetown, KY.)."

Loved the Surf Shack Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the Surf Shack cottage! The house is decorated with lots of great surf/beachy accessories. The location was perfect for us, only steps to the ocean and close to all the restaurants and places we like to visit at OBX. Also, the house has all the amenities you would want for a relaxing vacation.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The house was the perfect size for the six of us. Plenty of room for all of us. Close to the beach so the kids could come back to the house for whatever they forgot. Great location. The ice maker is wonderful! We will definitely want to come back.
