“Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

The Cove turned out to be a perfect place to stay for our 3 day/2 night stay on Ocracoke. Our original plan was for a regular room. A last minute change of plans required us to take our 15 yr old daughter and fortunately, the first floor Plover suite was available. She ended up sleeping on the couch and everyone was comfortable and happy. The Cove is a very well run B&B. John & Sharon do a nice job making their guests feel at ease. The atmosphere at the Cove, like everything else in Ocracoke, is extremely friendly and laid back. It was a perfect match for what we were looking for. The extra perks (bikes, beach chairs, afternoon wine and munchies, and of course the delicious home made breakfasts) made for a hassle free stay and made us feel like we were in our own home. Having cold bottled water available 24/7 was also a huge plus. The Cove is definitely not the place for families with small children, but it is perfect for couples young and old!

Room Tip: The Plover suite on the first floor is fantastic - easy in and out with it's own private entranc...

While it rained a good bit of the time we were there, everything was still lovely. It was obvious it may do that a good bit there with the extensive standing water. Room was large and nicely appointed with a great view and service was excellent thruout. We very much enjoyed the included very nice breakfast and the owners were very pleasant and helpful. It is remote and we wish we had planned to stay for at least a couple of days so we could have enjoyed everything the Island and the Cove had to offer on this trip, including the many bicycles, but we will be returning, perhaps next fall.

Room Tip: The larger rooms have better views and are worth the upcharge.

Very nice place to stay in Ocracoke. Nice room and great brekfast. Close to a small beach (about ten minutes walk) and close to the harbour, restaurants, the lighthouse etcetera. Would love to visit again.

Although the building shows some age, every room was kept immaculately clean. Other guests were friendly, too-- So if you come here, be prepared to enjoy the company of other couples at breakfast and the wine reception in the evenings!

We had a nice one night getaway to the a Cove B&B. It was the Lighthouse room. Very quiet, clean, extra blankets and pillows. The afternoon wine reception was enjoyable with the other guests. The breakfast was very average. We used the bikes to ride to Springer Point. Overall a nice, relaxing stay.

The Cove B&B was an awesome place to stay at during our trip. The hosts were fantastic, the house was very clean and up to date. The Cove offers so many complementary items such as bikes, snacks, wine and hors d'œuvre hour. The breakfast was also excellent with homemade meals, fresh fruit, coffee, tea and juice. The house is also located on the last road on the outside of the island, making it very quiet and peaceful, but was still well within walking distance of everything on the island. Awesome time!

Room Tip: From what I could tell, not a bad room in the house! All are great!

We spent six nights at the Cove celebrating our wedding anniversary, and couldn't have been more thrilled with our travel choice. Ocracoke Island is such a hidden gem ... so charming, unfettered and laid back. The Cove was comfortable and felt like home away from home. Innkeepers Sharon and John welcomed us and did a fantastic job serving delicious breakfasts, and offered good advice on what to see and do on Ocracoke Island. The wine and snack hour each day was an added bonus ... a perfect post-beach/pre-dinner treat. We took full advantage of the bikes offered by The Cove, and had such fun exploring the island and even biked to dinner every night. We would absolutely recommend visiting Ocracoke Island and staying at The Cove, and hope to return again!
