We had so much fun at The castle. Our every need was met, and the staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. We were on a 2 week tour of Eastern NC, and a restful stop at this property was just what we needed. We especially enjoyed taking a bottle of wine across the street... More

I think you must have stayed in the Castle Villas and my guess is you were in The Net House. The Castle Villas are made of up 1, 2 and 3 bedroom individually owned condos, while the b and b is owned by a small, local company. Villa guests have access to the same amenities as the guests of our... More

We rented three villa suites for two nights, and were very happy with them. Loved the decor, very clean and comfortable. Staff was very friendly. Only thing would be that in the rooms that had the window A/C units - it was VERY muggy at night. Things in the room were practically damp in the morning. BUT, the unit we... More

Very nice location, close to everything and very clean. A little pricey in my opinion but worth it for the view, location, great breakfast and friendly atmosphere. Free bicycles were a plus, the deck over the dock was great to sit on and watch the sunset and the pool out back was nice if a little small. Plenty of parking... More

My recent stay at The Castle rates among the best vacations I've ever had. This hotel is elegant without being prententious, courteous without being officious, and beautiful without being precious.

A week here is a vacation in the truest sense. We were welcomed back as if old and dear friends. The atmosphere is rustic yet elegant. The breakfast is really a full scale brunch and for us eliminated the need to eat lunch. We hope to sneak in a shorter visit before next Thanksgiving.
