Situated on 100 feet of ocean frontage, the Small Family Cottage is an exceptional seven bedroom home that offers breathtaking vistas, modern day amenities and classic OBX style, all in an historic Outer Banks beach setting. Your family will love one of the area’s largest oceanfront decks, perfect for lounging and sunning. The wrap around covered porch is the ideal spot to catch the afternoon breezes and settle into a good book. A private boarded walkway leads to a dune top gazebo with built in benches.

This spacious home combines the best and most up to date features w/ traditional Outer Banks charm boasting ample living areas for your entire group, including a living/dining area combination, separate wet bar/butler’s pantry with ice maker and dishwasher, and large kitchen w/ island bar seating. The cottage retains the original pine flooring, tongue and groove paneling and exposed beam ceilings.

The Small Family Cottage was designed by Frank Stick, renowned writer/illustrator for the Saturday Evening Post, Ladies Home Journal, and Field & Stream. He was an early real estate developer and conservationist here on the Outer Banks in the early 1940’s when the area was first beginning to flourish. The Small Family has owned and lovingly cared for the property for over 70 years and invites you to book your vacation today!

Small Family Cottage is a unique and wonderful vacation home on the beach, Really felt like a home and the cottage is the best equipped place we have ever stayed. Such fun to learn the history of this house.

Our group loved the historic charm of the house! The house had everything you could ever need as a renter, was in great condition and very clean! Plenty of room for our group of 11 adults & 4 kids. The large back deck was great for everyone to hang out together. We can't wait to come back!

You can't beat the deck on this house. The whole family (12 of us) spent every night outside playing games. This is a historical home with many updates but it has retained the original charm.
