When you are looking in Ocracoke for home away from home, Ocracoke Harbor Inn is a great choice.
During our visit in spring, we booked the standard room for 1 night and enjoyed our stay. The room was comfortable and immaculate with a balcony overlooking the spectacular lake.
The room had basic amenities like coffee maker, refrigerator, hair dryer. The microwave is available in the office which can be used if required. Wi-Fi is available in the room to remain connected which is helpful as mobile connectivity is very weak.
The staff at the office was warm and extremely helpful, sharing some interesting stories and history about the island. In fact one of the interesting facts we got to know was there is British soil on Ocracoke. No it’s not a British embassy, but a cemetery where some World war II sailors put to rest. Every year there is ceremony where US Coast guard and British royal navy officers join to honor them.
There is complimentary continental breakfast, good for a start of the day which you can enjoy sitting on benches outside by the docks. Relax in evenings watching the sun go down, or have fun barbecuing with friends at the grill available by the waters. The aroma of the grilled meat, corn and veggies wafting away might be inviting to surge your appetite.
Start exploring the warmth of the city by renting a bike or golf cart from the hotel. Conversely, you could just enjoy the quaint lake relaxing, sitting by the docks, watching the gulls fly.
