Sharon is a fantastic innkeeper! We love The Cove, and we visit each year!

Sharon was very accommodating and helpful and we enjoyed her stories about the history of the island. Liked the room but showed its age a bit (carpet, access to shower/tub-no grab bar for easy entry/exit, furniture) but was clean. View wasn't as anticipated (Portsmouth Suite); not able to fully enjoy the view of the Sound's sunset, Springer's Point or Portsmouth Island from our veranda due to the trees which have grown and blocked the view.

Stayed in the Lighthouse room; everything about the stay exceeded our expectations; restaurant recommendations were really good; we biked; kayaked; went to the beach; all in a two-day, one-night visit. Looking forward to our next visit.

The Cove Bed and Breakfast provided us a clean, comfortable, and friendly place to stay for our thirtieth wedding anniversary. From fun conversations during the wine hour with other guests, Amy, and Sharon...to our daily explorations of Ocracoke, the Cove B&B opened opportunities for great memories. Thank you Amy and Sharon for hosting our stay with you. Anne and John

We arrived w/o any reservation and found other places full but very helpful! Our first call was to The Cove and they had rooms available. After spending the night before in a nasty place (we had a misguided reservation in Nags Head) Sharon and sister, Amy, welcomed us with a lovely large room....although pricey it was so roomy, so very clean, quiet, and relaxing! We enjoyed chatting with Amy as we enjoyed a glass of wine and then she recommended a favorite restaurant. It was closed but we had a great meal at a nearby place, neither would we have found without Amy's direction Judy

My fiancee, girlfriend at the start of the trip, and I stayed in the Sandpiper room. It was a gorgeous room with a beautiful view. While the room was fantastic, the hosts were the best part of the trip. Sharon and John are amazing and I could not have planned such a perfect proposal on Okcracoke Island without them. They helped me plan things out from the beginning to make for the most perfect sunset horseback ride on the beach proposal I could have dreamed of. In addition, they set up a lovely and inviting environment in the home which allows many opportunities to meet the other guest and make some great new friendships. I cannot forget the breakfast. When you stay there DO NOT MISS THE BREAKFAST. The breakfast they serve is to die for! Thank you Sharon and John!!!

Sharon an John made it great! 4 nights were too short of a stay at the Cove.

Everything was perfect (free bikes, they made us breakfast to go before the regular breakfast time so we could make the ferry, coffee with to-go cups) but bathtub didn't drain properly and the styling of the guest room we were in was pretty terrible. Other than the styling/decorations, our guest room was great. Would stay again.

We were very pleased with location and staff assistance with exploring the island. Sharon, John and Amy provided answers to any questions we had.
