You’ll enjoy your relaxing ferry ride into Ocracoke Island where we look forward to introducing you to our Village, one of the “top ten prettiest small towns in North Carolina.” Our Outer Banks bed and breakfast offers quiet and solitude in a great getaway, where your comfort is our pleasure. Stretch out and unwind, and leave “the world” behind. The Cove’s tastefully furnished suites and rooms with their spacious furnished balconies offer a special setting for your vacation, honeymoon, anniversary, birthday or simply being here. Our cozy Ocracoke bed and breakfast offers first class Outer Banks lodging in the guest rooms of our B&B inn, located along the Pamlico Sound of North Carolina. If you have special medical dietary needs, let us know in advance and we’ll try to meet them. If possible bring uncommon items with you. Ocracoke has but one grocery store, but we are inventive and will deliver an Outer Banks breakfast you’ll remember! There is fresh French Roast coffee and a homemade treat at 7 AM, followed by breakfast at 8:30. The Cove’s incomparable full-plated and served hot breakfast is the hallmark of our day and is said by many to make lunch unnecessary. Offerings vary, including such delights as our special version of Eggs Benedict, stuffed french toast, pumpkin pancakes, casseroles, quiches, sausage or bacon, fruit juice, and our Cove-baked breads including Ocracoke’s unique fig cake. Our homemade fig preserves, from our very own trees, are a delight, and our our coffee pot is bottomless.
Directions: If you are driving: From points north, drive down the Outer Banks on NC Hwy 12 to Hatteras Village, from where you can board the free ferry which runs at least every hour (more often during busy times of the year) from 5 AM until midnight. This ferry ride takes approximately an hour and lands at the north end of Ocracoke – from there, you will drive approximately 15 miles (continuing on NC Hwy 12) to reach Ocracoke Village. After arriving in the village, continue on Hwy. 12 until you see Lighthouse Road (look for the large white hotel (Island Inn) on the corner). Turn left onto Lighthouse Rd. Drive until the road takes a sharp left and becomes Loop Rd. The Cove is immediately on your left. From points west and south, take one of the two toll ferries (about 2.5 hours) from the mainland, which cost $15 one way for a car (if you are towing something or driving a larger vehicle, such as an RV, the cost is higher). If you are traveling from the south, take the ferry from Cedar Island. Coming from the west, take the ferry from Swan Quarter. These ferries run on a set schedule, and reservations are necessary (especially during the summer months). The mainland ferries land in the village. After disembarking, you will turn right onto Highway 12 and follow it around a curve until you see Lighthouse Road (look for the large white hotel (Island Inn) on the corner). Turn right onto Lighthouse Rd. Drive until the road takes a sharp left and becomes Loop Rd. The Cove is immediately on your left.
