Quote: We often go to Okcracoke for a nice summer weekend. Our anniversary is July 30, so we come usually that weekend. There is a boarding kennel, so we bring our dog with us and have a nice time at the beach.

For $20 a night (you bring the food), you can board your dog. Janet, the owner, gives you a key to come and go. She has room for about 20 dogs, so you need to book early, but this is great and she is always full. Make sure to have all shots and records up-to-date.

She lives next door, and I wonder how she can stand the barking. They take great care of all the dogs, taking them out. She also makes sure they have fresh water. It’s great. We drop the dog off and come and get him to take him to the beach for a while.

This is a wonderful, small inn. The rooms are very nice and romantic. They offer a full-cooked breakfast served on the breezy porch or in the lobby. Every day at 5:30pm, they have wine and snacks, and this gives all the guests a chance to meet each other. The owners, Jim and Mary Ellen, weren't there, but they had another couple, Katy and John, taking care of the guests. The rooms have hair dryers and amenities like nice shampoos and lotions.
