Guest Comments -
"In all the many years I've vacationed in the Outer Banks, I've never seen a home as wonderful as this one! I hope I get to come back soon. It feels so good here; it's happy! And the beach is so close - it's not a "hot" walk when kids need to come back and forth to the bathroom! I have thought of this home very often after my visit...I can't wait to come back again! I don't ever want to leave. This is just a beautiful home. You can tell it is well-loved because it's in immaculate condition. I love all the gorgeous wood-working and Old Nags Head-style design. My children left here with smiles on their faces! It's a Magical place! We love it and can't wait to come back! This place is a Memory-Maker!"

More about all the nooks and crannies of The Legacy...

This charming Historic Nags Head-style cottage is a just over 4000 SF cottage with 5 beautifully appointed bedrooms (beach cottage themed); 4 spacious full baths, 2 half baths PLUS 2 outside large showers complete with hot & cold water & changing areas. Multiple foot washes around. Kids will absolutely adore the Captain's Bunk Room with built-in bunk-beds, each bed with its own "cubbies", curtains and lights (safety rails for each) to keep kiddos busy for hours! For a younger child, there is a "porta-crib/play-pen style bed" and high-chair.

Massive back deck and screened porch overlooks a large swimming pool with charming views of Currituck lighthouse beacon for chill-axing during the day under "Tiki-style" umbrellas, and for grilling, star-gazing and watching the lighthouse by night! (millions of stars are evident in the dark skies while you can see the turn of the lighthouse beckon!) Enjoy a "captain's dolphin watch" and hear waves wash ashore from East decks. Rock away sweet tea afternoons in North porch breezes.

Enjoy gathering in multiple areas, allowing groups to break-out, yet all be connected; and a very convenient Butler's bar connecting the family and dining rooms.

Huge antique dining table off kitchen and 2 expanded screened porches allow for more seating and dining of 14 plus high-chair! Kitchen is fully-stocked for chef-style cooking, or just an easy taco dinner! (Large crab/steam pots; pans easily filled at stove-top pot-filler; taco prep tools for both hard and soft tacos; Instant Pot; crock pot sauce warmers; Foreman grill, air popcorn popper, plenty of dishes and utensils for at least 2 rounds of meals! Large meat roasting pans great for large roasts, turkeys, and ribs!) Everything here! Also, for quick morning start-ups, "Coffee Stations" are at an easy reach - from stations scattered from kitchen throughout downstairs. (Cuisinarts & Keurig quick cups on the go!)

Rec area is complete with plenty of seating, as well as, Multi-cade Arcade game with all the classics, board games, and classic full-sized Foosball... Flow outside under deck to cooler breezes and cushioned patio seating complete with Hammock, Basketball, Corn Hole, half-sized ping pong table and more...

Home and Renter closet is stocked, including beach cruisers, with baskets, ample beach chairs and umbrellas, skim boards, boogie boards, pool floats, toys, balls and noodles enough for all, and toys, etc.! Wheel-eze beach bucket (large sand wheel) makes easy transit to and from sandy beach access & beaches! For your comfort, extra blankets and pillows are scattered in all the rooms.
(Note: some furnishings/bedding have been updated/upgraded. However, style/design classic Historic Nags Head style with a touch of whimsy throughout!)

Made for family and close friends, filled with “shabby-chic” antiques and fun, we hope you enjoy this wonderful cottage as much as we do!!
