“Absolutely Perfect!”
Reviewed 10 July 2012

We stayed in the Castle Bed & Breakfast on day 28th of our great summer 2012 adventure. Absolutely Perfect!!! How fun to be surprised after all these nights in hotels and B&B's and Inns with another super great stay. We came in with stormy weather - the first few hours we were lucky to just be inside - so we explored the house and the crow's nest and all the common areas. Books to read, a pool table, tv, internet - all the comforts of a great stay.
The 2 gals who run this are a riot! So fun, entertaining, helpful and just plain nice folk! Our room was on the ground floor and spacious. Comfy bed, fun antique furniture and quiet. Internet worked great (IN our room) even in the rain and wind. Popcorn, peanuts, pretzels and fresh-baked cookies are out for you to enjoy at your leisure. Great night's sleep!
Then - Breakfast - let me tell you how great that was! When they say "full breakfast", they are NOT kidding. Yummy made fresh biscuits, egg casserole, some of the best sausages we've ever eaten, fresh juice, fruit, on and on and on. You can eat either in the formal dining room or in the kitchen.
After we ate, we walked over to see the lighthouse and explore the Island we didn't get to see in the storm the night before. We had a 1:00 ferry ride off the Island - everything went off without a hitch.
Wish we had planned to stay longer at this stop.
A+++

Room Tip: The rooms all have names. We stayed in "Patti's Room". It was wonderful for the 2 of...

My fiance (now husband) booked a room for our one night stay for a honeymoon night, as we traveled to Ocracoke to have a destination wedding with our family and friends; and he wanted us to have a night alone~the owners were gracious to allow him to book the room for one night during the July 4 th week! The room was very pleasant and shower was roomy for two! The breakfast is the best on the island!!! Definitely a place to spend a special time with the one you love. Romantic overlooking the harbor, the particular room we stayed in had a light house view as well as the harbor. The B&B had bikes for use and a nice pool in the back of the property. There was snacks out in the afternoon, wine glasses, and a nice fridge in the room as well. We had some delish homemade cookies in the afternoon! There were also two screened in porches with hammock swings! I would highly recommended this lovely and full of history establishment! Thank you for a lovely visit~allowing us to stay one night! The Hess's, Denise and Keith

Room Tip: Janes Room has harbor view and side view of Ocracoke lighthouse!

We visited Castle on Silver Lake for one night and stayed in their light house suite. The suite is clean and has a lot of space. The atmosphere is romantic. The breakfast is awesome!

This was my first time staying in a bed and breakfast and I was pleasantly surprised!! This is a great property. We stayed in "Billy's" room. Although this is in the main house and did not have a direct water view, it was totally enjoyable!

The breakfast both mornings was outstanding. The friendliness of the staff was excellent. The island is small so we rented a golf cart which made getting around much easier! There is much to see such as small shops of every kind and plently of good restaurants.

The ferry ride from the mainland is free and wonderful as well.

I highly recommend both the island and the Castle!!

The only small weekness was the ice machine never had any ice. That could be easily resolved and was insignificant in the scheme of things!

Room Tip: I only know about "Billy's room. The web site is excellent and can help you choose!

Nice place, nice location, nice people, nice breakfast.
This is of course an island hotel, family run, so, no, it's not a four seasons with trained staff at your beck and call 24/7, but I am giving this 5 of 5 on a scale of Ocracoke hotels, which are more or less exclusively family, casual, holiday places.
Beautifully decorated inside, great faciilities such as the sauna and pool, and we loved the billiard room. And a great breakfast, although it is served 8:30 - 9:30 ONLY. If your expectations are correctly aligned you will LOVE this place.

Castle on Silver Lake is a B&B in a great old house with a super location on the quiet side of the harbor. That means you can walk to the shops and restaurants, but the noise and the traffic that they generate are all on the other side of the water, not disturbing you. The breakfasts were excellent and abundant. We couldn't even sample everything that was offered. Bicycles are available for guests' use free of charge. Don't miss the view from the rooftop deck. It's just magnificent!

Room Tip: Jane's Room has a beautiful view of the harbor.
