Experience the original Outer Banks-style cottage with a two-minute walk to the ocean. You will need to cross Rte.12 (the beach road) to reach the beach. Designed after classic Nags Head architecture, this custom-built cottage will take you back to the historic Cottage Row, across from Jockey's Ridge, reflecting the way cottages were built for the early residents of the Outer Banks.

Surrounded by cedar shakes, exposed hip roof porches, propped-shuttered windows, sip your coffee in a wooden Adirondack chair and realize this is a new state of mind. At Carolina in My Mind, life slows down while the next line of pelicans floats by. We invite you to make memories between the tides. Experience life by the sea as it was long ago, but with all the modern conveniences, such as the free solar-panel heated pool during the fall and spring seasons.

* Solar Heated Pool - Mid April through Mid October *

Mr

We loved our stay this year at Carolina in My Mind. We’ve been coming to OBX since the early 90’s and have stayed in several different houses from grandiose to simple - But this house was perfect in every way. It checked all our must haves! We’ve already reserved for next year and quite honestly probably won’t change houses again! Thanks so much !! The Tiedge Family

well kept overall

The house is great and well kept overall. Comfy beds and sofas. Nice kitchen. Would have given 5 star if the floor and carpet isn’t so sticky. Bathrooms are small and not enough space to put your toothbrushes, towels, cups, etc.

Outstanding Value

My wife and I have rented this same property for about 15 years in a row. It has all the amenities that you could possibly want for a beach home and is wonderfully maintained. We will be back again this fall and have already booked again for next year. I would't think of any other place!!

A place you'll long to go back to!

Carolina In My Mind exceeded all my expectations. Before now, my family had always stayed in pet friendly cottages. This year, however, our granddog stayed home where she wouldn't have to climb stairs. I was excited to finally see for myself if this cottage was as wonderful as I had heard from friends. IT IS! The cottage has ocean views from 2 bedrooms, upper and lower decks with seating, and the great room. It is clean, beautifully and comfortably decorated, well maintained and full of natural light. The kitchen appliances looked new, and everything you needed to prepare, cook, serve or eat with was there. The table inside was large enough to seat all of us(6 adults, 3 grandchildren). The table on the upper deck was a favorite spot in the morning as the sun was rising, and the poolside table was perfect for lunches and provided shade when not in the pool. The pool was spacious, hot tub relaxing, and deck chairs were plentiful. The walk to the beach is short and simple. Outdoor grill came in handy for a couple of dinners, and the kids loved the outdoor showers and ping pong table. The cottage also offers a great selection of games and books, though we had beautiful weather and stayed outside much of the time. The mattress I slept on was very comfortable (I have an old back injury), and the shower water pressure was relaxing. The cottage also stayed cool and comfortable, even with the beautiful sunshine we had all week. The only incident we had all week was our fault, involving my youngest granddaughter's diaper in the pool. I immediately called the number provided on the pool gate. I explained what happened and Mike was there in less than an hour, even though it was after hours. He shocked the pool, enabling us to be able to use the pool the next and last day of our vacation. Mike was our hero, and despite multiple tries to compensate him, he refused and said he was more than happy to help. Just like WHY the song was written and recorded 50 years ago by James Taylor, you too will long to go back to the fun times you shared with your family and friends at this beautiful beach cottage, Carolina In My Mind.

Looking forward to returning

We can't say enough about "Carolina In My Mind" because there are just too many things good things to say. Why are we "looking forward to returning" is simple, it's like your home when you're there. Close to the beach, and if that doesn't suit you, how about a pool to cool you off. At the end of the day, relaxing in the large jacuzzi, will relieve any stress. Although, the only stress you may have, is knowing all this will come to an end. Always clean and inviting upon arrival, "Carolina In My Mind" is welcome sight. The home seems to say, " come in and relax, enjoy what I have to offer; and above all, have a great time". We did and you will too !

Mr

My family has stayed at "Carolina In My Mind" several times, but always separate an not as a group. During the week of Sept. 10, 2016, we stayed as a whole Family. What a great place to stay, it's like being home, yet on vacation. A short walk to the beach is very handy, especially if you want to go back to the cottage for some snacks. Very centrally located to shopping and restaurants, this cottage couldn't be in a more better spot. The on site pool, with its cover to keep the heat in and trash out, is very relaxing, as an alternative to the beach. At the end of a busy day or a late night time to relax, the large jazucci is a welcome sight. The cottage is always clean and inviting upon arrival it is well stocked with everything you need for a first class vacation. We plan on returning again and are looking forward to that time.
