My wife and I have been coming to Ocracoke for many years, and we don't come if we can't get the Lighthouse Suite. It isn't just a room, it is the experience that makes the trip. From the time Ronnie welcomes you until you leave, it is so relaxing and fulfilling. Sitting outside on your cupola overlooking Silver Lake from...

Your review even makes ME want to stay in The Lighthouse Suite! Thank you so very much. I will make sure every one who works at The Castle sees this. And we will see you in a few weeks.

Couple of nights at the Castle. Rooms 'cozy', clean, with amenities. Our time there was early April, so coolish. Nevertheless the warm, friendliness from the staff was palatable and real. Oh and the breakfast prepared by John was/is terrific. Wish the entire mob there the very best of this season.

Stayed at the Castle during the off season as we toured the Outer Banks. Based on the reviews we saw and the recommendations we received from friends, we had high expectations. Our experience exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the Lake Room. As good as the room was, and it was great, the staff was far better. Really hard to...

Stayed here for 2 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Stayed in Janes room and it was great. The breakfast in the mornings was second to none. Also the afternoon cookies were excellent as well. The inn is perfectly situated in the village and with the use of the bikes you never need your car until you are ready to...

This was our second time at The Castle B&B in Ocracoke - first time was for our honeymoon and this time was for our 6th anniversary. The Castle is not inexpensive, but it is an idyllic place to step out of the rat race, relax and just enjoy the peace and quiet of the harbor at Ocracoke, which is just...

A week stay at this place, first time staying here, and read reviews before booking. Overall, the place is good, right on the water and able to put in the kayak right from our front "yard." View was fantastic and the King bed is comfortable.Screened porch is a nice addition where we spent watching sunrise/ sunset. BUT, some warnings, this...

First, thank you for your review, however I am a little confused and think you may have actually stayed in one of the Castle Villas, and not the Castle on Silver Lake Bed and Breakfast. Two separate entities. Each of the villas is individually owned and they are adjacent to the the B&B. The B&B is not on the water,...

We had a wonderful stay in "Jeffs" room, and the staff was extremely accommodating, especially Sidra in the morning for breakfast! Make sure you ask her about her Mexican omelet. If you stay in the main house, you can go to the widows walk up top and get a beautiful view of Silver lake for the sunset. Bring wine and...

I have actually stayed in Jeff's Room and liked it too. I will make sure Sidra sees your review, and thanks for the nice words. "Bring wine and cheese"...that is always good advice. Thank you and please come back to stay at The Castle B&B again.

Wonderfully quiet place on a beautiful island. The breakfast was amazing. The employees are very friendly and try to make you feel at home. We reserved a few rooms for our adult children and ourselves. All neat and clean. Will definitely go back.

We stayed here for two nights in one of the B&B rooms. The greeting was warm and we got a quick tour of the place. The room was clean and yes a bit dark but if you adapt to that, it is fine. The walls are a bit thin but we didn't find that to be a problem. As someone...

Researched a place for a single night stay in Ocracoke and came up with the Castle based on reviews and the photos. We ended up in one of the "condos" behind the main building and it was clean and neat but very dark and dated. We had very little interaction with the staff...the key was left for us on the...

Just so this is clear for people reading this... Guest is referring to the Castle Villas, which are all individually owned. They are NOT referring to the Castle Bed and Breakfast. I am sorry that the condo you rented was not to your liking...if you would let me know which unit it was I would be happy to pass on...

“The Castle was built in the 1950s by a man who was 5'4". Some of the clearances in the Inn reflect his stature.”
