Not realizing that literally EVERYTHING shuts down between Christmas and New Years on Ocracoke Island, there was nothing to do and no pirates to see, so we ventured to the next ferry heading to Hatteras Island. Well, same story there but this time a beautiful rainstorm greeted

I stayed one night at the breakwater inn along with a few other parties. We were all going on a fishing boat in the morning. The breakwater is in walking distance of the dock, souvenir shop, and restaurants. Although the rooms are a bit outdated in the fishermen’s quarters, they

It’s been 10 years since I’ve been to the Breakwall, and it was as incredible as I remember it. Get the scallops Al Greco. Delightful. We took a party of seven, and everything from the first bite to the last was delicious.

We have 1 brick building and 1 wood building. We do not have special room rates prior to a hurricane. If there is a mandatory evacuation we will not be able to rent rooms. We strongly discourage visitors until the hurricane passes. Most of our weekend guests have already cancelled and we will contact the rest. There is only one road on and off the island and it is very vulnerable to ocean and sound side flooding. Ocracoke Island, just south of us, is under mandatory evacuation for ALL residents as of 5 AM this morning..

"Request top floor"
"If you want nice views ask about the rooms with a water (marina) view. If you just want a nice place to sleep try the Fishermans Quarters."
"Upper floors have best view but only a luggage elevator."
"The best room is the room you took elsewhere. All rooms face the bay"
"It is worth paying the extra for the harbour view, but beware there are no elevators"
