We took off for Ocracoke Island Late tuesday afternoon for a "night away from work" and called to find most places were closed and one had no vacancy. We stumbled on to the Castle on Silver Lake, my wife had a nice conversation with the reservation lady and we booked a room. We traveled via motorcycle with another couple and...

It is cold and rainy here today, with more of those "high winds" you mentioned, so reading your review was a little bit of sunshine for us here. I am glad you found us and sincerely hope you will come back. The Castle is a beautiful old building and we are very proud of it. Your tips were very helpful...

The Castle B&B provided a relaxing getaway weekend. The innkeepers (Ronnie and Sidra) are very friendly and helpful. The Lighthouse Suite is the perfect location to relax and take in the sunsets from the cupola. Pictures of the Ocracoke lighthouse from the Castle overlook are breathtaking. Our stay was perfect and the accommodations were exceptional. Breakfast each morning was home-cooked...

I think your decision to come back during the summer is a good one! Everything is open then and you can visit some of the excellent restaurants on Ocracoke. And shopping, don't forget about that. It is always rewarding to hear that our guests had a nice visit at The Castle and thank you for taking the time to post...

In spite of a roller coaster of weather conditions, the Castle was the perfect retreat for total relaxation. Ronnie, Jude and Sidra are perfect hosts and chefs. Even during a short power outage, storm related, they didn't skip a beat. If you are on Ocracoke you aren't looking for the Ritz Carlton in the first place, so the rustic features...

I really appreciate it when guests personally thank the members of the Castle B&B family...because they all work so hard to provide comfortable and relaxing experiences for everyone. Thank you. So happy to hear you had a nice stay. The Lighthouse Suite is a wonderful choice...and we so hope you come back Thanks again

The Castle was the perfect background for enjoying the village. We arrived and were met by Ronnie. Her welcome was just what we needed to help us get situated and assist us to make the most of our visit. We hopped on the bikes available to Castle guests and set off to tour the town and have a fantastically memorable...

Ronnie is fabulous! She loves what she does and that shows in everything she does at The Castle. We appreciate your kind and enthusiastic review so much.

The castle is a little different, not a hotel and not a B&B. It is pretty much as it was 25 or more years ago. The interior is very much period, lots of antiques and furnishings. The staff was most helpful and their breakfast is very nice. Its a well prepaired country breakfast with flair. We pulled up chairs and...

We were blessed with a week of wondrous weather and we took advantage of all that The Castle and Ocracoke had to offer. The Lake Room was delightful and the staff treated us like old friends !

"Heaven on Earth" is how we also think of Ocracoke, and it was nice to see that in your post. I enjoy hearing that our visitors made time for some of the wonderful attractions here. Thank you so much for your kind words and recommendations, we appreciate that. Please come back again, soon.

Five stars for Ocracoke. The Castle gets an extra star for the town in which it is located. A villa room means no breakfast, no pool table either. While I can understand a restriction limiting breakfast to the B&B residents if table space is an issue, it is harder to follow the logic when the pool table stands empty, as...

Thank you for your review. I think Ocracoke deserves five stars as well! We love our little island. I was glad to hear you found your villa comfortable and well equipped.

Sometimes a single visit isn't really characteristic of the actual accommodations. This was our second stay at The Castle - and it was even better than our first wonderful stay (you can look up my other review). We stayed in Katie's room again. We enjoyed the jacuzzi again. We grabbed a bottle of moscato and some bruschetta from Zillie's and...

Sounds like ya'll did it up right while you were here: wine, sunsets and a whirlpool tub are ingredients for a wonderful stay on Ocracoke Island.

So, we were in the Harbor Room, a nice big room that is fully finished in wood with with excellent joinery and detail. The views were spectacular and the building made our imagination wander to the times of sail...that these accomodations would be fit for a captain (if he were ever to be ashore).
