Lawton's, Front View

Howard Street

"Lawton's" is a one bedroom, one bathroom cottage with an 8' X 16" screened porch, and is located on the corner of Lawton Lane and historic Howard Street in the heart of Ocracoke village. 

Howard Street, established in 1835, looks much as it has for many years.  Older island homes, family cemeteries, and moss-covered wooden fences add to the charm of this area of the village.


Lawton's is off the beaten path, but centrally located near shops, restaurants, Silver Lake Harbor and the Ocracoke Lighthouse.

From our Guestbook:

"We had a lovely time & enjoyed this superb home.  This was our sixth trip to Ocracoke but our first time staying at the Lawton Howard home -- it's the best house of the four we've stayed in -- very spacious, comfortable, [& with] easy access to all things on historic Howard Street."

"We love it here.  The house was very nice & comfortable, & quiet at night."

"My first trip to Ocracoke! It is like no place I have ever been before.  Especially appreciated the history of Howard Street, Lawton's stories, and your cozy home.  You thought of everything -- nothing missing!  A real treat -- we hated to leave."

Lawton Howard (1911-2002) was a delightful native islander. To read more about him click here.
