Oh my goodness, how disappointed we were with this place. It seemed to be clean but everything in the room was sub par for the high price they charge. My husband and I drove out there and granted we had a long day getting over to Beaufort from the Outer Banks and were looking forward to a nice rest. When...

We needed a place close to the ferry to Ocracoke and chose Core Creek Lodge. We were drawn by availability and price, plus TripAdvisor reviews. It is much further from town than we realized, but does have a Beaufort address. The room was modest and clean. The beds were comfortable. Breakfast was simple, but better than many places we have...

Hey Tammy, Let me first thank you for taking the time to make a review. This is how we get very valuable information about our lodge. We recently took over running the lodge and we are constantly trying to improve our guest experience with renovations being a top priority. During our busy season it is difficult to shut down all...

This new place to visit was really such a nice change from the busy and routine big hotels . We found the owners to be friendly, accommodating, and generous. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff very friendly and courteous. I would love to visit again!

We booked to be close to early ferry to Ocracoke. Had decent reviews. Owner was very helpful and nice. However, room was not good. We arrived late and left super early so never got to talk to anyone in person. They left the door unlocked and key in the room. Room was hot with no thermostat. Must be centrally controlled....

We stayed one night in June, on the way to Outer Banks. Our room had a problem, so they put us in a little cottage next to the water. The inside was very clean, the sink was leaking before we got there but was fixed, and we did not have problems with it. The owners are very nice and welcoming.

At the very last minute, we decided to travel to Beaufort, NC for the 4th of July. Everything downtown was booked; but we found this lovely place right on the intercostal waterway. This was perfect, as we had our kayaks. Garry was absolutely lovely! The staff was attentive and sweet, the breakfast WAY above what I had expected. The room...

Thanks for your comments...we installed extra lighting for security reasons, but have come to realize from guest's comments that a shade in the room would be helpful. I am glad your overall experience was a good one. Hope you can come back soon!

The people who run the place are very sweet. The rooms, not so great. Floor sagged (like it was unsupported). Some rooms have streetlights shining in through the sagging plastic blinds, right in your eyes. I think the owners got stuck with a dilapidated property.
