About Becky Vernon

Our home was built in 2002. We purchased the lot in 1997 and our families dream to have a home at the beach came to fruition in 2002. We are originally from the midwest and completed our undergraduate work at Indiana University. Mark completed his post graduate work at Purdue University. In 1988 we settled in Virginia. So although we are midwesterners at heart our home is Virginia. Both of our children and their spouses are graduates of UVA.

The Vernon family has enjoyed the Outer Banks for years, and we feel fortunate to be able to share the love of the ocean with our 6 grandchildren.

Becky Vernon purchased this house in 2002

Why Becky Vernon chose Corolla

Home is something incredibly special to us, and that is the case with our vacation home as well. We love to keep improving and updating the house each year to ensure our guests are comfortable and have a memorable vacation with your family. In the fall of 2016 we updated much of the decor, adding new art, pillows, nightstands, lamps, cozy seating areas in the bedrooms.

Other updates for the 2017 season include:

* new outdoor girl

* a second full size fridge added to the ground floor rec room

* new ceiling fans in 2 bedrooms

* entry benches and hooks at both main entrances to corral shoes, bags, jackets and towels

The heating and air conditioning units were replaced in 2015.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is an outstanding place to stay. Great set-up. Very clean. Had a pool and hot tub and all the adult bedrooms have the own bathrooms. The bottom floor has two terrific rooms for kids with bunk beds and a shared bathroom and a rec room with a pool table and fridge and TV. The kitchen and dining area is HUGE, as is the living room. VERY close to the beach and the community pool. It fit our group of 13 perfectly. I would DEFINITELY book this place again!!!!

Family Friendly Mount Vernon

  • 5 of 5

We and friends of ours stayed at the this lovely spacious home! It was our friends' first visit, and they loved it! It was perfect for 8 children ranging in the age from 7-13 and for moms who were vacationing while husbands golfed. We enjoyed the beach 2-3 hours per day and then would spend the afternoon in the pool. It worked out perfectly for everyone's tastes! It wasn't something that required money over and above the initial investment- the home, the beach, the pool, and the amenities were enough for us. You can tell the owners put a lot of time in with the pool table, the games, movies, and the many t.v.'s and getaways in the house! It's wonderful, and we are all planning on going again this next summer. Restaurants are close, and are also family friendly.... for a couple nights out we went to Sunset Grille, and enjoyed the ice cream shoppe that TinBuck II. We were also able to get family photo shots that we will be using for our Christmas cards! It's just a great home- there is nothing that you will need....all is there! Kitchen is stocked- ideas for the visiting in the area are provided, beach toys and chairs are a plus!

Great house for a family.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family stay at Mt Vernon! Ages 62 to 1.... Just a few houses from the beach, and the pool/hot tub allowed us to still “play” while the littlest one was napping. Great location and accommodations. Becky was a wonderful host. Would definitely return!

Welcome you’ve arrived at Home!

  • 5 of 5

Mount Vernon is truly a home away from home. The family room is so comfortable and seating for meals was more than adequate. The kitchen doesn’t disappoint as previous reviews stated we had everything we needed. The location is perfect and the pool and hot tub were wonderful. My family looks forward to spending many summers here. Thank you Becky for a amazing week in your home!

Beautiful home close to the beach. Clean and updated. Whole family enjoyed the home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and decorated so nicely. Close to the beach with fully

stocked kitchen. Having two coffee pots was perfect for large group. Lots of stairs in the house but looks like all the houses were the same. We just got a leg workout. Loved it being close to Timbuk II with shops and places to eat. Close to grocery stores and Duck Donuts, YUM! We had a problem with one of the TVs working and the owner took care of the problem right away. I would definitely recommend this house.

We love Mount Vernon!

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat renters. This newly redecorated, immaculately kept, spacious home is perfect for a family vacation. The owner is very responsive. The kitchen is well appointed. Plenty of options for relaxing on the multiple decks for fresh air. It is a short walk to the beach access. The private pool and hot tub are perfect for more fun in the sun. There is a nearby pond where the kids love to visit the wildlife. Walking paths and bike trails allow for outdoor adventure to nearby shopping and dining. Mount Vernon feels like home away from home.

It IS a home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed at Mount Vernon many times over the years. The owners go out of their way to make visitors feel like it's the best vacation ever. Updated decor has added a new flair to the home. The owners spare no expense in making the house a place to relax, bring family together and 'yearn to return.' The kitchen is well stocked with anything necessary to prepare any meal...simple or gourmet. Sitting on the upper deck is a favorite spot. Many days, the waves can be heard from the house. They have a plaque over the fireplace..."It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This"...that says it all.

Car: necessary

This home is located in Ocean Sands Section O located between Duck and Corolla. Ideally situated close to plenty of shops and restaurants. Newly completed bike/walking path makes it easy to take a short ride for ice cream, Duck Donuts or the grocery store/Starbucks in one direction or to the shops of Tim Buck II in the other direction.

Multiple community tennis courts and a large community pool are steps away, as is a pond with turtles and ducks who love a visit. Enjoy varied fine restaurants, nearby miniature golf, fitness center or go-cart track. Pamper yourself for a day at the spa.

Great photo-ops and beautiful sunsets at the historic Whalehead Club on the sound just 3 miles north.

Kayak, jet ski, fly stunt kites, fish, crab the sound nearby or drive down to Kitty Hawk to climb the sand dunes and visit the Wright Brothers memorial. Golfing at the beautiful and challenging Currituck Club is just 1/2 mile away. Visit numerous quaint shops 1 1/2 miles north in Corolla, right across the street from the Food Lion and movie theatre complex, or spend the day browsing the many delightful shops in nearby Duck.

Drive off road along the ocean and watch the wild horses, climb to the top of Currituck Lighthouse for spectacular views.

There's something for everyone here!!
