Property Overview

The Castle on Silver Lake, located on Ocracoke Island, the southernmost island on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, is on the National Register of Historic Places. This unique structure has a past as colorful as its architecture. Built in 1954 for wealthy industrialist Sam Jones, the Castle was modernized but retains the original wood walls, ceilings, and trim work, including beautiful dental molding in most rooms. The Castle offers refined and upscale accommodation while maintaining the casual feeling of an Ocracoke cottage. A widow's walk and third-floor deck provide stunning views of Silver Lake Harbor, the Ocracoke Lighthouse, Pamlico Sound, and a distant ocean view from the rear of the widow's walk. The Castle shares a pool, pool house with sauna, steam shower, and bathrooms, bikes, grilling area, and a floating dock on the harbor.
