About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to Glen Cove, located on Hatteras Island in Rodanthe and only 4 houses from the oceanfront. Rodanthe is a small, unspoiled village not far from Nags Head. The beaches are wide, never crowded, and perfect for families, fishing, surfing, and sailing.

Glen Cove has 3 bedrooms and sleeps 6 (2 queen beds and 2 singles). Bedrooms are colorfully decorated, with attention to detail. All beds come with comforters, pillows, pillow covers and pedestal fans.

There is an outside shower (hot and cold water) with a dressing area, a picnic table,charcoal grill and a fish cleaning table. We also have 2 covered decks where you can sit and relax after a full day of activities.

A well-equipped kitchen includes a refrigerator with icemaker, stove, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, many cooking gadgets and ample dishes, serving pieces, and cookware - all the amenities of a home.

There are several other nice touches: DSL internet access, DVD library, 3 TVs and a DVD player. The house sits on a 1/2 acre lot, so it is very private, on a quiet street. There are ocean and sound views from the decks.

Glen Cove is available from SUNDAY to SUNDAY. One of the best features of this cottage is its location!!! Just 3 doors away from one of the most beautiful, family friendly beaches on the east coast. You're sure to enjoy your stay in this quiet, scenic location so close to the beach!

Thank you for considering Glen Cove for your next family vacation.

Cozy Comfortable and Close to the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Glen Cove surprised us with its warm & welcoming decor. As soon as we walked in, we knew we were in the right place! Could not get enough of the view out the living room window, but if we needed more, a two minute stroll got us out on the beach! Great size for the two of us & our 'pooch'. Loved that we were so close to the sound with its beautiful sunsets, too! We definitely would stay here again & recommend this cottage for a relaxing vacation!

I love this place!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place to stay. We have stayed here for the past 3 years and absolutely love it. I have stayed here with family (including small children) and also for a girls week. Great view of the ocean from the porch and very relaxing atmosphere. This year there were several nice updates to the house and the driveway was paved. I highly recommend Glen Cove.

You Won't Be Disappointed

  • 5 of 5

Glen Cove definitely surpassed all of my family's expectations. The house was VERY close to the ocean, and with all the extras available in the shed such as boogie boards, beach chairs, a corn hole game, umbrellas, and even a beach cart to carry everything, it made the trek even easier and more enjoyable. The ocean views from the porch deck were incredible. Plenty of dolphins were sited almost every morning. Our family also enjoyed the porch deck at night because the evening ocean breezes were very relaxing. There were plenty of games, puzzles, and a huge DVD library available for inside entertainment. The beds were extremely comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with everything you needed for cooking. The only two things we wanted that we didn't see was a tea kettle and a pair of scissors. Everything enjoyed having an outside shower to get all of the sand off of you so you didn't have to track it in the house. An added bonus was having a nice sized charcoal grill which was well taken advantage of ;) The owner was amazing. She answered all of our emails promptly and came to our rescue towards the end of the week. We thank her for being awesome. Local places I would recommend if staying here....Leonardo's Pizza and Good Winds Restaurant. Enjoy a stay worth your while and your wallet.

Owner's Response: Thanks Amanda for such a great review! I appreciate you taking the time to tell us what you think of Glen Cove. I'm so glad you guys had a great time and sounds like you had great weather. We thank you for staying with us this year and are looking forward to your stay next year. We also like Leonardo's pizza but we haven't tried Good Winds yet. We find The Mad Crabber in Avon to be very good also!

Great place to stay at the Banks!

  • 5 of 5

Its easy to see why Glen Cove gets some many good reviews. This quaint cottage has everything for you to enjoy a week at the beach with a short walk to the ocean. The cottage is very clean with 3 on the smaller side bed rooms but for vacation we had no complaints. The kitchen is fully stocked which was great since we ate at the cottage a few times through the week and always had breakfast and lunch there. The charcoal grill was nice as we grilled up steaks one night. The family room was big enough for every one to gather around during the evening after dinner to watch some tv and wind down for the evening. It was a real bonus that some boogie boards and a beach cart were provided and made it very easy taking all our stuff down to the beach, which is literally a 3 minute walk from the porch till your on the beach. You can hear the ocean during the day but especially at night when you sit out on the deck and just enjoy the breeze. Lori (one of the owners) was great as she always got back to me very quickly and even checked in when we got there. We didn't have any cell service but the wifi at the house let me check my email and look up place to dining out, also the phone at the house let me make some needed calls. The best place to eat while at Glen Cove by far is Lisa's Pizza, we ate there twice during our stay. Both times the service was great and food was exceptional. We stayed at Glen Cove for the main reason of being pet friendly. Our pets thoroughly enjoyed the stayed and being able wonder around on the decks during the evening and morning. We already booked our vacation at Glen Cove for next year and are looking forward to another great vacation. Thanks a bunch to Lori and we would recommend Glen Cove to anyone who is looking for a great place to stay.

Great views of the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home! It offered very easy access to the beach and is beautifully decorated. Great views of the ocean from just about every room. Nice clean, fresh rooms and bathrooms and everything in good shape and working order. I would highly recommend this vacation home to any of our family or friends.

Pictures did not do it justice.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was great. The pictures seemed dark on line. It's very bright and welcoming. Loved the area and met a lot of locals, including one lady who played the patient in the movie, Nights in Rodanthe. Even got to watch two houses being moved from down the street to right behind. Great movie selection. My 13 yr old son LOVES The Great Outdoors. Lots of dishes. Comfortable beds. Several board games available to play if it rains. Steps from the beach. A great patio to watch sunrise in the mornings. Close to day area for the sound. No local grocery store, but the campground store was close. If you want touristy this is not the place, but we wanted to relax so this was GREAT. Beach area clean and quite. 12 ft waves most days. Lots of surfers. The sound was great for young children, shallow and great for teaching your child how to kayaking. Several local museums. Lots of local restaurants to choose from. Would recommend this cottage to others and considering a return trip for ourself. Owner very friendly, even received a phone call mid week. Prompt response to all emails during the initial review. What prompted us to consider this cottage was the fact that the owner replies to the reviews.
