Great trip!

4.8 on June 26, 2014

Great location - within walking distance of everything but in a quiet area too.

Romantic, charming and quaint

This was our first visit and we are definitely coming back! Private, comfortable, convenient, extremely friendly...we had a blast! The Cove made our trip that much better. Thank you and see you again...Ciao.

Great getaway!

Enjoyed our stay at The Cove, and becoming acquainted with the picturesque town of Ocracoke. It's like stepping back in time. We particularly enjoyed the quiet area where The Cove is located, and encourage visitors to go to the Deep Creek Theater there to hear the music of Molasses Creek on a Wed. or Thurs. night June through August.

The Cove B&B is amazing! We enjoyed taking the bikes out for dinner, then back for a swing in the screened-in porch off of our room. The breakfast was fantastic. Perfect place to stay!

Beautiful location with delightful breakfast. Convenient use of bicycles. Very clean and homey atmosphere. Happy hour was a plus with wine and homemade treats. Highly recommend this oasis of relaxation.

Just right

We stayed here at the beginning of a 2,000 road trip across the South. Glad we did. The location was far enough away from the island's hustle and bustle that it was peaceful. Plenty of parking in a neighborhood that didn't have much. A bit of a long walk to town but we enjoyed it. We used the bikes and the front porch and the deck off our room.

Very relaxing

We enjoyed a wonderful 4 night stay here. Very good breakfast. The Cove is charming and off the beaten path. Comfortable suites. The innkeepers, Erin and Chad, were very helpful. The place is well maintained. It is close enough to walk to the village. The social wine hour is very nice. We met our neighbors. Great way to share information about things and places to go! Laid back vacation!

Quaint Bed and Breakfast

2.8 on October 01, 2013

We enjoyed our stay at The Cove Bed and Breakfast in the Plover Suite. Chad and Erin O'Neal were extremely nice. Our suite was right off the main living area / entrance on the first floor and had a private entrance, with a covered screen porch and swing. The room was very comfortable, albeit a little chilly at the temperature it been set to. The private bathroom has a generous whirlpool tub. The breakfast was tasty, although not typical of most B&B's I have stayed in that offer a selection vs. only one option (and no idea what was being served until it was on the plate in front of you at the table). I wish I had known this in advance because I would have shared more of my personal preferences ahead of time (i.e., aversions to hollandaise sauce and green peppers). For our suite in particular, we loved having the screen porch and fully enjoyed the swing. The only major con is that since it is right off the main area of the house, the mornings were a little disruptive from the early risers chatting it up just outside the door in the main kitchen. This suite may not be an ideal location for "non-morning folk". Parking is tight, but there is limited overflow in very close proximity. The bikes also needed a bit of work - several needed repairs to be usable, and many of the other visitors commented that it would be helpful if the bikes had baskets (as many that you see around the island do). Other than these minor issues, we very much enjoyed our stay.

Love Ocracoke!!! An OBX hidden treasure!!
