"Three ladies recent "annual" adventure to Ocracoke Island was "as always" heavenly. Ocracoke Island is awesome but staying at The Castle is really what makes our trip so special each year. The Inn itself is decorated beautifully and the architecture is truly unique. The inn is cozy, comfortable, and welcoming. We always stay in the Harbor Room which is the largest room within the Inn. It is large enough to give three women plenty of space to spread out. The beds and linens are extremely comfortable and the rooms are very clean! The Innkeeper and every employee are wonderful people; always smiling and wanting to be sure your needs are met. They treat us like family each year. The Inn is very reasonably priced, especially considering everything you get; free bike rentals, free Wi-Fi, free premium TV shows, free billiards, books, and puzzles, as well as a large screen TV in the den with a DVD player. Breakfast is amazing so save the diets for back home. Everything is homemade; omelets, casseroles, frittatas, pancakes, biscuits, grits, potatoes, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, fresh fruit, as well as the usual cereals and muffins. Also, coffee, tea, and a variety of fresh juices and other breakfast accompaniments. It's always fun to meet people from other places and this year we were joined by a group from China! Every afternoon we were greeted with fresh baked cookies, snack bars, microwave popcorn, Andes Mint candies, bananas and bottled water. And last, but not least, there is a beautiful, clean, refreshing pool, a sauna and two steam showers in a very private, sunny setting behind the castle. The flowers and landscaping are lovely each year. Oh, I can't resist grabbing some jelly beans each time I visit the front office! Thank you Ronnie, Jude, and Sidra for another wonderful trip. You all are the best!"

"My recent visit to the Castle Bed & Breakfast was a wonderful vacation. The accommodations and the service was wonderful. I have to comment on the wonderful breakfast at the B&B. The staff is very good about helping with any needs that you might have. Comment on the Island, it is a very laid back place with no rush to be anywhere. Restaurants, Methodist Church, crabbing, museum and beach were some of our favorites! My family members agree we will return."

Dianne - June 2013

"I want to thank all of you for making our stay so wonderful. This was the first vacation we've had in 27 years that didn't include children and lasted more than 2 days. We're already talking about "next time". Be sure to tell Deana that her cookies are terrific. I'm definitely going to miss those hot-out-of-the-oven ones. I also enjoyed the 6:30 bacon and coffee this morning on the way to the ferry. I wasn't expecting that. I look forward to being a part of your family again."

Rebecca Waters - June 2013

"We had an absolute blast. It was Charlotte's first time to Ocracoke and my return after eight years. We both loved our time at The Castle and so look forward to our return. Who knows, we just may make it back sooner!"

Paul and Charlotte - May 2013

"We would like to extend our deepest thanks to the entire staff at the Castle B&B for making our stay such a wonderful amazing experience! We felt completely at home the entire time. "My man" your cookies are the best! Looking forward to our next visit! Thanks again."

Joe and Sandra - February 2013

"Just wanted to drop you a note telling you what a great time we had there last week! Staff was warm and friendly, accommodations were great, and the food was excellent! Even though much of the island was closed for the season we still found plenty to do during our 2 day stay. Will definitely be back!""

Glenn - December 2012

"Last year was so wonderful, we returned this year. Although the weather was mostly blustery and overcast, the Lighthouse Suite was the perfect setting and space to watch the harbor and lake. We love coming to Ocracoke for true vacation.
Thank you Gaffers, Zillies and Back Porch for remaining open this week. Ronnie and Jude - don't ever leave.
Until next year,

Margo and Howard - December 2012

"Dear Jude, Ronnie and Chef Bud - We have fallen in love with the Castle AND Ocracoke! Your breakfast casserole and pancakes and warm personalities made us feel so "homey" immediately!
Thanks for loaning us the computer, Ronnie and the fax and printer. Thanks for the restaurant recommendations (they were beyond "wonderful") and the time you took to show us around when we first arrived. It really made us feel welcome and appreciated!
I pray that we can bring our kids back someday.

Kevin and Patty - October 2012

"Came in along with a major T-storm. Then a solid week of sunshine and heat. Great 4th of July, esp. the square dance. Kayak tour of the sound was beautiful - esp. since we had no problem keeping up with those teenagers. Lots of fishing - no catching. Los of reading - Terrific week!"

Hope you have as nice a time as we did."

Bill and MJ - June 2012

"As before, we truly enjoyed our stay at the Castle. When we leave for the day or evening, we speak of "going home" when we return to our room. We do not do that anywhere else that we go. The staff is so friendly and the breakfasts are wonderful. Thanks for your warm hospitality; we will be returning."

John and Renita - June 2012

"Perfect as usual. Thank you Ronnie, Gladys, Jude and staff for making our stay so wonderful. This was our second visit in two months and most certainly not our last….can't wait for the opportunity to return.
We found things to do that we didn't do before; places to visit, food to savor. The Castle is "the place to stay" in Ocracoke, NC!

Bill and Judy - June 2012

"Our stay with you in Jane's room on May 18th - 20th was one of the most relaxing and pleasant vacation experiences we have ever enjoyed. We've visited Ocracoke for nearly 40 years and have never lodged in a more beautiful setting nor interacted with a more engaging, friendly and helpful staff than that which we encountered at the Castle.

From the stunning sunsets viewed from the top deck, to waking up to the smell of fresh coffee, to beginning our day with a wonderful home cooked breakfast, to a walk around the beautifully appointed grounds, every hour spent with you was a delight.

Our thanks to each of you for making this one of our most pleasant getaways ever and we fondly await our next visit.

With sincerest regards."

Red and Patty - June 2012

"Ronnie, thank you so much for making our wedding weekend extra special. The Lighthouse Suite was absolutely awesome, and the views of Ocracoke were breathtaking. We are still getting compliments about the cake from all our guests. Thank you for the extra touch and time it took to help us celebrate our wedding. Ocracoke is a great town with great people and we will definitely be telling people to come and enjoy Ocracoke and the Castle for years to come."

I would say this is the epitome of first class and would recommend the Castle to anyone visiting Ocracoke!"

Josh and Michelle - April 2012

"We arrived on Sunday. We were greeted by Ronnie and given the grand tour. We were king and queen of the Castle due to being the only guest the first night.
Each morning, we were greeted by great breakfasts. Jude's eggs were exceptionally light and fluffy. All the food was wonderful. (Never had cheese grits before.)
We enjoyed riding around the island on our bikes. Ronnie and Jude were wonderful hostesses. We had a wonderful 1st visit to Ocracoke and our 25th wedding anniversary.

Dallas and Rachel - March 2012

"THANK YOU!! Your establishment is so wonderful, warm and inviting, but it truly is the staff that makes it special. We had a glorious time visiting your beautiful town & island.
