About Tom Griffin

Kelly and Tom Griffin live in Richmond, VA with our 2 daughters, 5 and 8. Tom's a huge lover of surf fishing, and we are both life-long OBX fans....and this is our little dream cottage -- welcome!

Tom Griffin purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Tom Griffin chose Outer Banks

We purchased the cottage in 2012 from Matthew Norman, a renowned local artist who actually ran his art studio from this very cottage. We fell in love with it instantly, and the cottage is decorated with many original works done by the former owner.

What makes this cottage unique

Old Nags Head charm, 100 paces to beach, surf fishing, hot tub, outdoor shower, pet-friendly, fenced-in backyard with grass and landscaping, covered front sitting porch, and 8 doors down from Tortuga's restaurant!

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for us! Took our two dogs and my mother and had a blast. Everything is in a short walking distance, and we loved the home and fenced in yard for the pups. The owners were very cooperative. I can't wait to come back to the Fishin Griffin. Be sure and check out the artwork at the house...gorgeous!

We drove from NH and Tom was very accommodating and communication was great. The house is precious and clean. The back yard is a gem that we enjoyed. Beach is close by. Would come back and stay again. Thanks for the great visit!!!!

Perfect for our family of 5!

  • 5 of 5

The Fishin Griffin is in an amazing location across from the beach and the house is well maintained. It was the perfect size for 2 adults and 3 teenagers. We don't want to stay anywhere else on our visits to the OBX!

Perfect ocean cottage

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of three photographers who visited OBX during the off-season. This house is very homey and perfectly located. The owner was an absolute joy - responsive and accommodating. The highlight of this property is the well-screened hot tub which was a welcome respite after some very cold days of shooting. We didn't do any cooking but usually do so I checked it out. The kitchen is well-stocked with plenty of plates and silverware. The beds are comfortable. There is a washer and dryer and dishwasher. Good water pressure, plenty of hot water and the heat works well. Three thumbs up!

Multi generation bucket list fun!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location and comfortable authentic cottage was a perfect escape for all ages! Mom was comfortable.....clean....great location.....and just a few steps into the cottage. The pups loved the fenced back yard! Thank you to the Griffins for accommodating us at the last minute in the off season. Can't wait to return.

Perfect House Steps Away from Beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the Fishin Griffin for our 2nd wedding anniversary. To say it was perfect is an understatement. Tom, the owner, was amazing all around from staying in contact with us throughout the week (due to impending hurricane) along with giving us ideas of things to do while we were there. The house is stocked with games for rainy days and lots of beach stuff (chairs, cart, toys for the kids), etc. Our stay at the Fishin Griffin was perfect in every way and we cannot wait to come visit again! A bonus was our two dogs that joined us for our trip had a fenced in backyard and LOVED the space to run around!

Car: not necessary

We front the beach road in the historic section of old Nags Head. Our cottage and many of the others are 75+ years old, so this area will provide the 'old school' beach experience!

We are only 100 yards from 2 beach access points. And Tortuga's Lie, the best and most fun restaurant in the OBX, is only 6 doors away! The Nags Head Pier is a quarter mile away and the Lucky Tavern is a great sports bar that's only 250 yards away from cottage.

This area is also in the area known as the Nags Head Gallery Row Arts District with several galleries within 2 miles of our cottage.

Of course, the 'bypass' is only 4 streets over and offers every shopping, eating, and recreational imaginable for you and your family.
