Located on 100 feet of sea frontage, the “Modest Family Cottage” is an exceptional seven bedroom home that offers magnificant vistas, modern day amenities and classic OBX style, all in an historic Outer Banks beach setting. Your family will appreciate one of the area’s biggest oceanfront decks, ideal for inviting and sunbathing. The wrap around covered porch is the just right spot to catch the afternoon winds and settle into a good rent. A private boarded walkway leads to a dune top gazebo with constructed in benches.
This big home combines the choice and most up to date includes w/ traditional Outer Banks magic boasting bountiful living areas for your entire group, including a living/dining area combination, separate wet bar/butler’s pantry with ice maker and dishwasher, and generous kitchen w/ island bar seating. The bungalow retains the original pine floor, tongue and groove paneling and exposed beam ceilings.
The “Modest Family Cottage” was designed by Frank Stick, acclaimed writer/illustrator for the Saturday Evening Post, Ladies Home Journal, and Field & Stream. He was an early real unit developer and conservationist here on the Outer Banks in the early 1940’s when the area was first beginning to flourish. The Modest Family has owned and lovingly cared for the unit for over 70 years and invites you to rent your holiday today!

Save money in Fall. - For several reasons autumn is a special time to visit the Outer Banks. Since days (and water) are still warm but evening hours are cooler, it's much like getting two seasons in one vacation. Ocean treasures such as shells and sea glass are abundant making them more readily found. The sea shifts from day to day. It's behavior and color change with the wind direction and you can view the many personalities of the Atlantic while here. The excitement of the anglers lining the fishing piers and shoreline is palpable.
