About

The house was purchased in 1991, and has been in a constant state of renovation since the day we walked through the front door. We have tried to bring this wonderful old house back to its original beauty, with the addition of modern conveniences for our guest's comfort. The house has been here since the early 1900's, and has stood through many storms, hurricanes, a fire, an explosion, and a 2 unit apartment house. The original house did not have baths, was heated by coal stoves, and the kitchen was not attached to the main house. The original kitchen interior was destroyed by a fire along with the porches that once wrapped around the kitchen, the fire damage extended into the dining room and living room areas of the house. The remainder of the house has all the original wood flooring and walls, and most of the glass is the old wavy glass that is so hard to come by today. All the wood to construct the house was milled on the property, along with the forged nails. The original property consisted of twenty-six acres, which was subdivided over the years. The orginal owner of the house was a US Coastguardsman who was stationed on Hatteras Island, and commuted to his duty station from Mill Landing just a short distance down what is now Rt. 345. The original owners family still own the property on the north and west sides of our property, and their daughter is still living, and spends some of her summers on the beach with her family.

Great location.Quiet location with beautiful gardens.

4.0 on October 27, 2013

Location is on Roanoak Island which is a short drive to the beaches. The Island offers a non commercial vacation spot with an active fishing village on one end and a upscale town at the other. Beaches and restaurants are only a short drive. Located for close access to the National seashore south,or happening places north


A wonderful getaway

The Island House was a wonderful choice for a weekend getaway. The hostess, Jeanne, was fantastic, the food was delicious and the room was fabulous! I would highly recommend booking it.


Comfortable & Pleasant

A bit far from the husttle and buzzle of the Outerbanks. The area is quiet, pleasant, and a perfect location to relax if not a bit boring. Overall we liked it.


Adequate, Victorian, lovely gardens
