We having been coming to Ocracoke for years, having stayed at both the Anchorage Inn and Bluff Shoals motels, rented houses, etc. Edwards is the perfect place to stay for us, as you don't have to rent for the entire week, you can cook here (sometimes hard to find a meal on the island if you are arriving/eating late) and this property just screams "laid back Ocracoke style!" This is a family-run property, and this trip was our third visit with them. It is older, but very well maintained, new windows, updated bathrooms, etc. It has the island charm that you want for this lovely little island, and they make you feel very welcome! We always bring our bikes, and leave them in the racks provided. This is the place you want to just park your car and either bike or walk! Visiting Ocracoke is like stepping back in time, and Edwards has captured that feel entirely! If you are looking for the high-rise condos of Panama City, Destin, or Daytona, don't come here! If you are looking for relaxation, peace and quiet without all of the frills, this is your place! We just left, and I already want to go back!
