About Brenda Mushill

Navy brought us to VA & NC in 1971 from Bethalto, IL. We fell in love w/the area & have been here ever since, except for 2 over seas assignments in Egypt & Japan. We both retired in 2013 & handle the cottage ourselves. When we returned from Japan we bought a home close to the cottage & our son's family who lives in Norfolk, our daughter lives in Atlanta.

Brenda Mushill purchased this house in 1997

Why Brenda Mushill chose Nags Head

We had been staying in this area at a friend's cottage for years, knew it was family area, that was quiet, private, but also close to everything we need.

What makes this house unique

Being close enough to just take a casual walk on the beach, enjoying the local area & being away from the hussle of the city and work. The only business in our area are the OBX Pier w/the Fish Heads Bar & Grill, a 1/4 mile down the beach, & the fire station!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have the best guest, over the years many have become our best friends and are like family. They share the love of the OBX as well as their love of staying at the Mushill's Shell with us and take care of it as though it was their own. We look forward to seeing them year after year. Larry & Brenda Mushill

Mushill's Shell

Mushill's Shell
  • 5 of 5
This is our second year at Mushill's Shell. We have vacationed at the Outer Banks since the early 90's and this is by far one of the best family friendly cottages we have ever rented. We love the proximity to the beach and quiet neighborhood. The house itself is very well maintained and cozy. We appreciate the well stocked kitchen and all the beach toys available. We hope to continue renting this lovely home for years to come. Thank you Brenda and Larry for your hospitality!

Great house, close to beach

  • 5 of 5
This house was great. We had two families and the bedroom and sunroom on one floor and the two bedrooms on the 2nd floor worked out great. Kitchen is well furnished, no need to bring your own pots or pans. Close to beach access - with a 3 yr old, 18 mnth old & 9 week old, we had no trouble getting to the access. Close to all the tourist stuff, but far enough away that it was quiet-very convenient location (we loved Jockey's Ridge, flew kites there two days in a row, Wright Brothers Monument is a must, and the aquarium in Manteo is pretty neat too). Amenities such as TV and DVD players were great. House was very clean, and the owners are wonderful to work with! We will definately repeat this house the next time we head to the OBX!!

We Love The Shell!!!

  • 5 of 5
A terrific week was had by all - owners are terrific folks and very accommodating and helpful with any/all issues, of which there were few. Home is in spotless condition and in terrific location regarding the beach and commercial entities. We are headed back in September and already are counting the days!

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at the "Shell." The house was all it was advertised to be and then some. We had a great time just sitting around the living room one night laughing and telling tall tales. We all had a place to sit and relax comfortably - all 12 of us!

We would all go back again given the chance.
