“made out of ship wreaked wood!”

The Island Inn is the oldest functioning business on the Outer Banks.  It is also the oldest and finest establishment on the island.      The Inn is wrought with history and has been a center of life for Ocracoke's small community for over a century.     Built entirely from ship wrecked wood in 1901, the Inn has served many purposes over the years.  It has been the village's school, a dance parlor, an ice cream shop, an army barracks during World War II and has finally settled into its most fitting role as a Historic Inn.     The Inn is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places and nestled in the village's Historic District, facing Silverlake Harbor.  Each of our rooms is uniquely decorated in antique furnishings.  The Inn itself does not accommodate children (as it has only double and King sized beds and is best for couples only).  However, our luxuries villas - added in 2003 - are perfect for families and couples who are looking for a more inclusive accommodation.     All of our rooms and villas are non-smoking.  Some offer panoramic views of the harbor.      We have been featured in many publications including, Southern Living, Conde' Naste Travel Guide, The Saturday Evening Post and Fodor's, to name a few.
