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 completing our undergraduate work at Indiana University and 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 5 grandchildren.

Becky Vernon purchased this house in 2002

Why Becky Vernon chose Corolla

Each year we make improvements and updates. The great room furniture along with bedding and deck furniture have been replaced. In 2015 the heating and air conditioning units are being replaced.

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!

Perfect quiet comfortable place to spend vacation

  • 5 of 5

We where very please with the home, quiet street, clean and spacious house. Beds where super comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with all the right tools. Wonderful private pool and just a few steps to the beach. Loved the living room setup with comfy couches and TV with lots of channel choices. We loved it so much our group of family and friends booked it again this year, and will continue to book it for future vacations. The owners are super nice and easy to get a hold off. Also loved the outside showers and that they had a lot of the pool and ocean toys for the kids there. There is even a grocery store (Harris Teeter) across the street. Defiantly would recommend this to anyone looking for a nice relaxing time in the outer banks.

Perfect House For My Family

  • 5 of 5

My family has rented this house more times in the 12 years we have vacationed in OBX.

It just works for us. The beach is an important part of our vacation so it must be close, and Mount Vernon is.

We love that there is a bathroom in each bedroom on the second and third floor.

We always find the house to be clean and well stocked. We did have a problem with the air and it was fixed and back in working order in a day. One call to the owner and they were on top of getting it fixed.

Our security deposit was retuned quickly.

We enjoy staying in this house very much and hope to rent next year for our annual family vacation. We are making wonderful memories for our grandkids and that is what it is all about.

Wonderfully relaxing vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacationed at Mount Vernon last week and it was wonderful! We all had a very comfortable, relaxing, enjoyable time together. This was our first vacation in Corolla and it was great too. So peaceful and quiet - and the beach was great! We all hope to be able to return some time in the future.

Beautiful home, responsive owner, great time.

  • 5 of 5

Mount Vernon was an awesome home to stay at in Corolla. The bedrooms are all clean, spacious, and numerous bathrooms. The pool is clean and refreshing, and it is just a quick walk to the beach. Ideally located near the beach and tennis courts. Lots of great movies, puzzles, games, and a nice rec room. Well equipped with pack and play and highchair/booster seat for babies. The owner is extremely responsive—while we were there the latch to the door to the pool broke off, and it was fixed within an hour of reporting it. Well-stocked kitchen, lots of table/counter seating. It has the be the best house in Corolla. We'll come again!

Mt. Vernon was wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

Fifteen of my family members and I had a wonderful vacation in Corolla. A large part of this was due to our wonderful accommodations at Mt. Vernon. The house was spacious, well-equipped and very accessible to the beach - a very short walk. The game room and pool were wonderful for down-time from the beach. I would highly recommend this home.
