July 30, Elizabeth, WV
Had a wonderful time....
Loved the peace & quiet.
Enjoyed the beaches every day.
Also enjoyed the aquarium, goofy golf,
and visiting Jennette's pier.
We ate at Millers and enjoyed the sunset
and also ate at the Marina Restaurant at
Wanchese. Food was very good and very
relaxing. The kids enjoyed the petting tank.
Hope to visit again!

Thanks for letting us stay in your cottage.
We all were very comfortable and at home.
We really liked the Outer Banks and hope to come
back in the future. This week we went to Ocracoke
Island, Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and Beach, A Dolphin
sighting boat out of Manteo, the Wright Brothers Memorial,
and kayaking the inlets of Manteo. Our two girls loved the
bumper boats in Nags Head. The girls loved sleeping upstairs
away from mom and dad. Thanks again for your hospitality!

We absolutely adore Rena;s Cottage !
The cottage itself is very serene; Set
in the quaint village of wanchese.
We really enjoyed grilling out & making
friends with the "golden dog !"
The porch swing was our morning coffee spot.
We took full advantage of your eatery suggestions
and enjoyed all of them !
We explored so much of the area and
still have more to see.......
We would love to come back next summer;
if the fates allow.
Thank you for your hospitality, we are grateful !
We hope you enjoy the painting !
its a creation by Tom....

We went to the beach every day and had fires

November 30, Richmond, VA
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving visit
at Rena's Cottage. The house is great for
hosting several people of varying ages with
ample space for everyone. Four of us stayed
here and was joined most days by our Wanchese
granddaughter and there parents.
On Thanksgiving day there were 14 of us Dining.
It was fun. We enjoyed the porch swing, walking
in the neighborhood, and watching the horses
and riders going by. Thanks for the many amenities
that made our stay so comfortable.

October 11, London, UK
All lights blazing after a late flight from London.
Rena's Cottage was ideal for us as we explored
the Outer Banks. Lorrane was very helpful in
suggesting places to visit. Duck to Ocracoke and
including the Lost Colony, and Wrights Memorial.
No fishing due to the weather. Everyone we met
were very friendly and helpful. Driving around
was easy - although we had 2 hr and 1hr wait for
the Ocracoke ferry.

September 19, Louisville, KY
We had a great time here and the weather was good.
Perfect place to stay. We'll be back - Thank You

Thanks for letting us stay in your cottage.

"have to" come back !

June 23, Roanoke, Texas
Thank you very much for letting my family
use your home for the week of my wedding.
We not only spent time together for the wedding,
but also for a birthday and the joining of families
that created life long friendships. Friends and family
came from Texas, the midwest, and even Canada.
It was nice to spend time with them in a home instead
of the usual hotel room. Thank you again !

May 24, Bloomsbury, NJ
We are really enjoying staying at your house this week.
We traveled here from New Jersey for a family vacation.
We spent a lot of time at the beach, but we also went hiking,
bike riding, fishing, sightseeing, and boating. Your neighbor
Lorraine as well as her dog Rusty were very welcoming.
The whole week has been great !
Thank you so much for sharing your house with us !

September 15, Fairfield, PA
We both thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home
with us. I can see that you are very proud of it. We both have
spent time at each end of the Island, boatbuilding & seafood,
this is by far the best end of Roanoke Island. We have traveled
across the ferry to Ocracoke Island, to all others who read this,
do it, make the trip. You have not seen all until you make this
adventure. In all, we enjoyed staying on the Island, sightseeing,
and having your house to call home.
Hope to make a return trip again. Thank you

August 18, Brooksville, MD
We all had a good time. We went to the beach almost every day.
We went to Ocracoke on the ferry, and we went canoeing.
We hope we can come back next next year.

April 1, Moorestown, NJ
We are so happy to be here. Really impressed with your
lovely home. we've converged here from Philadelphia,
Boston, and St. Paul for a week of friendship and laughter,
and really look forward to exploring the area.
We had a wonderful week with lots of great adventures,
lots of laughter, mostly perfect weather, and good food.
We love the cottage. The sun porch was our favorite place.
I loved your sunny cozy cottage - a perfect spot for our stay.
