Welcome to one of Ocracoke's most charming old Island homes.
The Thurston House, constructed in the early 1920's, was the
home of an Ocracoke native guide Captain Tony Thurston
Gaskill for over 75 years. It is now on the Register
of Historic Places in North Carolina.
In 1996, Capt. Thurston's Granddaughter, Marlene and her
husband, Randal Mathews, renovated the house and opened the
bed & breakfast. In 1999, they added an addition
to the inn having 6 new guestrooms all with private baths.
Donna Boor purchased the inn in 2005 and runs it with the
help of her mother, Annie Louise Gaskill Gaskins.
Breakfast is served 8:30 to 9:30 daily.
We are centrally located
in Ocracoke Village within walking distance to the
Lighthouse, shops and restaurants. The Thurston House Inn
is within biking distance of the Ocean and airport pickup is
available with advance notice.
