"Year #6 for staying at the Minnow. 4 weeks of heaven! We had a great time visiting and being visited by friends we have made over the years. We beached- Dr. Beach knows his stuff! We spent many hours just enjoying our meals with the accompanying view from the back porch. Fish from the fish house with the back porch view is faboulous! The fireworks were awesome as seen from our back. We also took a daytrip to see the restored buildings and the bouy demonstration at teh Chicamacomico Life Saving Station. Fascinating . I highly suggest reading Fire on the Beach by David Wright. It is about Richard Etheridge and the Pea Island Life Saving Station. Thank you for sharing your special place with us."

"We love the Minnow. What a wonderful cottage! The best screened porch, the most comfortable bed, and teh best kitchenware we've ever had in our many years of coming to Ocracoke. This place is spectacular and special in every way."

"A great week at the Minnow! Weather was perfect. A little rainy a couple of days, but beautiful and windy others. We read so much, never turned on the tv, biked, went to the beach a lot, went to see a sea turtle nest excavation went to Springer's Point, shopped a little, went to a beach fire with ghost stories, enjoyed the hot tub, and napped everyday! Stayed here last year and have reserved it for next year too. We love the peacefulness and quietness here."

"So many pleasant surprises at the Minnow! New cedar shake exteroir - won't it be enchanting to watch it weather into an authentic beach cottage? Sparkly new shower with fun cutouts and lovely framed mirror. The new clothesline - I want one! I'd only seen pulley clothesline in the movies between apartment buildings, so fun to put one in action - all from the convienience of a step. New efficient dish drainer. So relieved the hot tub has made it into another season. Fingers crossed for next year. We've thoroughly enjoyed our 14th year at the Minnow. Here's an activity we tried last year - we boarded the Ocracoke Express passenger ferry and rode bikes to Hatteras - a more thrilling ride than a car ferry. We went to Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum, ate lunch at Tiki Bar in Hatteras Landing. Lovely place for lunch. Rode our bikes around Hatteras Village, caught the late ferry back. Glad we did it. Once is enough. New king-size mattress. So comfy! Pleasant dreams!"

"Fabulous little place. The back porch could do with ceiling fans; but otherwise it was excellent."

Had a great time at the Minnow cabin! The home was clean and functional. The view was great from the screened back porch and the sound beach! We would definitely go back."

"Visited July 2019
The Minnow Never Disappoints
This visit marks our tenth anniversary with Ocracoke, as well as with the Minnow. Weve never had the urge to try a different location, because weve never been disappointed. The Minnow has it all; the perfect location, the perfect size for two people, and peace and tranquillity. Why go anywhere else? "

"May 2019 Stay
10 vacations here later, we remain enchanted by Minnow ambiance. Perfect for a couple, comfy king-size bed; kitchen well-accessorized, conveniently compact. Both screened porch & hot tub provide sweeping sound views. Every diversion considered including backyard grill, Adirondack chairs on the beach, tandem kayak, perfect parking space for bikes plus one vehicle. Lovely seashore-themed decor including brand new privacy blinds. Full bathroom with convenient washer/drier. After a day on the water--readily accessible from Minnow beach--nature lovers can enjoy the outdoor shower, then inside for lovely breezes off the sound, enhanced by Minnow's ceiling fans. Or shut the windows and enjoy the air conditioning. Rainy day? Netflix streaming and DVDs available. Book shelves well-stocked with summer reads & puzzles. Owner attentive to detail with updates each year to bolster renters' comfort. Accompanying photo: sunrise from Minnow's beach. "
