About this cottage

45 Mary Ann Drive:

At "Little House by the Ferry" you can relax in hammocks and hear the ferry boats tooting their horns coming and going out of the harbor. Located near Silver Lake Harbor where all the restaurants and shops are located, you will find it easy to stroll or bike from this convenient location.

This charming 3 Bedroom (plus bonus bunk room) 1 Bath cottage has undergone a complete renovation and addition during the Spring of 2009. You will love the professionally decorated cottage decor. There are 2 hammocks for relaxing, a fenced-in dog yard, dishwasher and washer and dryer. While there is only one full bath, there is an exceptional outdoor shower with a star-filled sky above. You will never want to shower indoors again.

The large screened-in porch has vaulted ceilings and big views of open space which makes for a very private setting.

Bonus Items: We have bikes, sand chairs, beach umbrellas and boogie boards you are welcome to use. These items are not a part of the lease because we cannot guarantee they will all be in good working order at the time of your stay. It seems like there is always a bike or two out of commission at any given time.

Most of Ocracoke Island is owned by the National Park Service and there are no cottages located at the beach front. Little House by the Ferry is located in the village about a mile and a half from the beach. If you have a four wheel drive you can drive out on the beach. You can also drive or ride bikes to the life guarded beach and walk over the dunes to the beach.

Our cottage is now on city water which provides great water pressure and makes the our shower absolute heaven!

Maximum of 6 people.

Maximum of 3 parking spaces.

Maximum of 1 pet with $100 Pet Fee. (well behaved please)

Check-in time is 3:00 PM and Check-out time is 11:00 AM.

We hope you love "Little House by the Ferry" as much as we do.

    Weekend in Ocracoke

    We really loved this property. It was ideally located for the wedding we were there to witness. It was quiet and quaint, the layout of the house was just about as perfect as it could be. It was cozy but spacious while allowing our family to share the space and time with each other while offering enough privacy to keep everyone comfy. We will be staying here again upon our next visit, which can’t come soon enough!

    Charming and Cozy

    What a wonderful stay at Little House by the Ferrry. The house was easy to find and was more than perfect for our stay. There were 5 adults, a teenager and small dog on our vacation and this house had plenty of room!! The owner was very receptive and communicated all info before we got there. The house was super close to the village and with a golf cart that we rented for the week, we explored lots of Ocracoke Island. I only have two small issues. One, the picture of the cottage made it look like it was on or close to the beach, but the map shows the true location and the bikes could use an update. While all 4 worked, two of them were in pretty bad shape. Overall a wonderful time enjoyed Ocracoke for our first time!!

    Fun at the Little House by the Ferry

    A true beach house with simple, comfortable rooms and delightful common space, inside the beautiful kitchen/living area and on porch. Without a street sign it took a little sleuthing to find, but we truly enjoyed our hidden spot. We heard an owl on the water tower during a night walk to Zillie's, loved our bikes and walk on Springer Point, had the island almost to ourselves in the off season and even took our 95 year on a 6 person golf cart down every back road we could find,

    Pictures of the property look quite old compared to our stay. May items in and around the house did not look like they were being kept up. Overall decent location, but needs maintenance attention.

    20th Anniversary!

    We primarily chose this rental because it is pet friendly! As we were traveling and staying an entire week, we had to stay somewhere that was pet friendly and this worked out perfectly for us! Thank You Marsh for allowing us to stay in this house!

    Fun vacation.

    Overall we enjoyed our stay and would revisit the island again in the future but I'm afraid to say not at this rental. We found the house clean and well furnished, all appliances were newer and worked, however we found the bathroom small and the showerhead did not spray but rather shot a couple of water streams only, the shower and tub faucets worked but look like they were put together from a box of spare parts, example, the center valve didn't seem to do anything and the hot and cold valves were not marked so if you entered the shower prior to turning on the water there was a chance of getting freezing or scolding water at start, the wood frame around the window in the shower looked rotted. The front steps onto the front porch were so high it made it extremely difficult to step up to enter the house. We ended up using the outdoor shower and the back entrance for daily use coming and goings, and just one more note, this property is not ADA compliant!
