The Tunnell Farmhouse
Reviewed 13 June 2007

We left our precious Montauk hamlet for a long week to visit our kids in North Carolina over Memorial Weekend and to film a couple of my American Dreams® TV Shows down south on location. Swan Quarter, right on the bay, is one of the most beautiful, charming, historic, and unpretentious little towns on the Inner Banks; actually a fishing village. People are friendly and they seem to have more time, sit on their front porches in the evenings and talk to neighbors and people walking by. The NC Swan Quarter - Ocracoke Island ferry commutes to the Outer Banks island year-round and one can take the ferry for a dollar and spend the day. The Hyde County Courthouse in Swan Quarter is being rebuilt, as the historic courthouse was badly damaged as a result of a flood a few years ago, a dike that protects the village from possible storms and floods is under construction. We stayed at the lovely Tunnel Farm House B & B in Swan Quarter for a few nights and not just only for the filming of my TV shows. We rode our bikes all over town, attended the annual fish fry at the fire house on Memorial Weekend Saturday and one on Memorial Day at the Tunnel Farm with Sandra and Dick Tunnel and their neighbors and friends. I love fried fish, hush puppies and corn! The next weekend we took the ferry to Ocracoke Island for three dollars per person with a bike to attend the art and storyteller festival. At Pat’s ‘no name’ gas station, the only one in town, is a large sign that tells all who are passing by what the news are in town that day, if there are any. “Welcome American Dream TV” was written with red paint on the simple white sign, and I just loved it. - IL
