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 http://www.ocracokevillage.com/cottages.htm and scroll down to #9, "Old Island Home."
