This place is worth staying at for the breakfast alone. We stayed in the Lighthouse and felt like a king and queen. Beautiful view. The staff were great and friendly. I recommend this B&B highly. Within walking distance of shopping and restaurants

I agree with you about the breakfast...it is absolutely fabulous and you probably did not even want to eat again until supper...we have some great cooks here. The Lighthouse Suite is one of our most popular rooms and one reason is the view of the harbor. Thank you so much for staying with us and posting a review here. We...

This B&B is charming inside and out. The staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and smoke and pet free, the breakfast is delicious. They also provide free bikes to their guests. The widows walk has a nice view of the harbor and is a great place to have your morning coffee or a glass of wine at sunset. We...

We stayed at the Inn for only one night, but it was lovely. We chose a Villa, and were very happy that we did. We had our own fully-stocked kitchen, living room with flat screen TV, separate bedroom with king bed, and bathroom with jacuzzi tub and separate stall shower, as well as our own screened porch. Everything was clean,...

This is the fourth year we have stayed at the Castle B and B. I am very picky about how clean a place is and the Castle is always spotless. The food is AMAZING and is so generous that it should be factored in when conisdering the price. I find it humerous that someone complained that the food is not...

We recently stayed at the Castle B&B in Ocracoke. The women who run the hotel are extremely friendly and the breakfast in the morning is over the top!

First, let's say that Ocracoke is an totally wonderful place to go to. Quaint, pretty, without the commercial giants that we find everywhere else (no McDonald's, no Walmart, no Sonic...), it is a place for the ones who like to be outside the typical touristy places. The Castle on silver Lake is pretty, clean, fun, relaxing an the friendliness of...

Wonderful room, fabulous Jacuzzi tub, and an excellent breakfast - had an amazing stay at the Castle B&B.

We recently visited the Castle in Ocracoke. I wouldn't call it luxurious, but I would call it the best place to stay on Ocracoke.
