About

Welcome to Hurricane House, a rustic 3-bedroom, 1-bath waterfront retreat boasting a private beach area—a cherished haven with a devoted following of Old Ocracoke enthusiasts. Step back in time and immerse yourself in the charm of this simple, island-style abode, nestled within the historic district of Ocracoke and steeped in history dating back to approximately 1880.

This quaint home, adorned with weathered shingles, stands as a testament to the island's rich heritage, with its 1 ½ stories featuring a first-floor kitchen and dining area at the back. The front porch, facing West to catch the prevailing southwest winds, offers sweeping views of Pamlico Sound, beckoning you to its tranquil shores just steps away. This beachy escape is shared with Hurricane House's property sister, Rondthaler House.

Nestled at the end of a sandy lane, surrounded by lush thickets and marshes, Hurricane House provides a secluded retreat with 130 feet of waterfront access. From the porch, you can easily stroll to the water's edge and immerse yourself in the serenity of the Sound's shallow waters, perfect for wading and exploration.

Despite its tranquil seclusion, this Saturday turn-day property is conveniently located just a short 5-minute drive from essential amenities such as the fish house, grocery and hardware stores, restaurants, and shops.

The name Hurricane House pays homage to its storied past, with an earlier owner documenting the harrowing experiences of both the 1933 and 1944 hurricanes on a wall of the house. Purchased by the current owner in 1984 and meticulously rebuilt using salvaged materials after severe storm damage in 1985, Hurricane House stands as a resilient testament to the island's enduring spirit.

In keeping with the simplicity of Old Ocracoke, this historic abode offers only the essentials, eschewing modern amenities such as AC/Heat, TVs, or Wi-Fi. Please note that linens and towels are not provided, though rental options are available upon request.

Parking is limited to 2 cars, ensuring a peaceful and uncluttered retreat amidst the natural beauty of Ocracoke's historic landscape. Experience the timeless allure of Hurricane House—a cherished sanctuary that captures the essence of Old Ocracoke's enduring charm.

The privacy, peace and quiet along with the amazing views more than make up for the absence of many basic amenities.

The new Vornado fans and waffle-weave bedspreads are really nice. Also, they did a great job replacing the outdoor shower fittings.

we were happy to rent it and plan to come back. We are used to this place and like it. It's sort of on the order of a Pennsylvania hunting cabin, but with electricity and indoor toilet. We enjoy the fact that some people may not be able to handle staying here.
