Visitors to Ocracoke have many choices when it comes to lodging -- motels, cottages, B & Bs, and campsites. We don't have any chain motels, but we do have accommodations to suit almost any taste.

Cottages range from the elaborate (with Jacuzzis, theater rooms, and pools) to the simple (without air conditioning, Internet, or telephone). If you are looking to get away from it all, consider the Hurricane House. This is a traditional, no-frills island home with a screened porch (for enjoying some of the most spectacular sunsets anywhere) and a delightful outdoor shower. It sits at the end of a dead end road right on the edge of the Pamlico Sound shore.

You can get a sense of the house from this photo of the front door:

The Hurricane House is not for everyone, but for the right folks it can be the perfect house. For more information click here and scroll down to #9, "Old Island Home."

Also look for more information about how this house got its name in our upcoming June Newsletter.

    we always stay at the Sand Dollar - either in a room or a cottage. this time we have the suite, which seems to be more like a small cottage attached to the motel. the kids love the pool ;) We love the service and atmosphere (no frills, comfy, and CLEAN!).

    wonder if tommy will give me a discount now since ive given him some free advertising LOLOLOL

    we arrive tomorrow! CAN'T WAIT!
