My husband and I and most of our adult children and their families live in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, just 2 1/2 hours from our cottage fondly called 'The Rest & Be Thankful'.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1997

The beauty and serenity of the wide sandy beaches of Corolla first attracted us to the area. The family-friendly environment kept us coming back year after year. After a few years of renting in Ocean Sands Section F, we decided to 'take the plunge' and build our own cottage in the same section of Ocean Sands. Fifteen years later we are still enjoying our special home and the cherished memories that are made during each family gathering..

Welcome to “The Rest & Be Thankful', our peaceful retreat built by us (Joyce & Bill Sneddon) in 1997 for our family and guests. Over the years, we have lovingly added our personal touch to our cottage with you, our guests, in mind. We’ve enjoyed family vacations at the OBX through the years and hope that you, too will develop and cherish new memories & family traditions at “The Rest & Be Thankful”!

Great Family Vacation

Rest and Be Thankful is the perfect name for this lovely beach cottage. The cottage gave my family a much deserved rest from work, school and family responsibilities. I was thankful we had the opportunity to share this time together.
It was my grandchildren's first visit to the Outer Banks, and they had a blast! The owners have the cottage set up for family vacations - from the well-stocked kitchen to the bunkbeds and the basketball hoop in the driveway! The pictures do a great job of representing the cottage.
Joyce, the owner, was wonderful to work with. When the power was out one day, she took the phone call immediately and made the contact to the power company. There is easy access to the grocery stores in the area - Harris Teeter across the highway and a Food Lion right up the road. I would recommend the cottage for anyone looking for a relaxing family vacation on the Outer Banks.

WE LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!!

My stepmother, sister-in-law and I have stayed here several times over the past year and we now called it "our beach house". The beach is only a short walk away from the cottage which is fantastic when carrying beach chairs, a cooler etc. I love to lay in bed at night or sit on the deck and have dinner and hear the ocean. The kitchen and master bathroom have been beautifully updated and the whole house has a warm, welcoming feeling. In the winter months it is a wonderful place to get away for some peace and quiet. We spent New Years Eve at the house and I've never had such a wonderful start to a new year! It was wonderful to sit in the living room near the warm gas fireplace with my family. Its conveniently located near a Harris Teeter too! I love this place and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else!

A wonderful vacation.

This was our first visit to the Outer Banks. We had a wonderful time. The beach home, "Rest and Be Thankful" had everything we wanted and more. It was beautifully decorated and very spacious. Plenty of room for our family to relax in. The wi-fi was very convient. We also loved the decks and screen porch, and the close proximity to the beach. Section F is in the center of Corolla, so it was easy to get to everything. We even had a Hariss Teeder accross from Section F. I would highly reccomend this beach home. We plan to go back.
