An Amazing Place

We spent our Easter vacation at Crawford Cottage and had an amazing time. Late March and early April weather is unpredictable at best, but not this year. Great weather. We were a mixed group-- ages 8 years to 82. There was a place for everyone. The property is amazing, plenty of space to spread out, take "time out" to read, sleep or whatever! Mexican Train dominoes was the nightly activity on that beautiful long table. We had everything we needed. The dunes were difficult for some of our members but the view made up for that. We went to the public area and were able to use that. Maria was great to work with, kept up with us all along our journey and Dan was most patient and helpful when we called him. I would recommend this to any large group. This property provides opportunities for everyone. We hope to stay here again.

Crawford Cottage

Crawford Cottage is a beautifu large house with all the amenities one can imagine: pools, gym, pool table, ping pong, etc, etc. The location was great and the owner was as accommodating as humanly possible. We have had three mini reunions of our high school class at OBX the past three Fall's and this years was the best. I would wholeheartedly recommend it to a large group. Dealing with Maria Crawford was a joy.

Eugene I from Durham, NC


This was my second visit to this house and I would go again in a heart beat. I am elderly, have oxygen equipment, and also have a bouncy dog, so we stayed in the original smaller cottage and I loved it. If I wanted to socialize, the smaller cottage is attached to the larger one and there is an elevator which makes life much easier for me. Wonderful beach access and viewing decks on top of the dunes. I found it clean, well maintained and would recommend it to anyone wanting a fantastic get away!

Crawford Cottage is the BEST!

Our stay at this home this year was our second visit to Crawford Cottage. We have vacationed in Nags Head 6 times in the last 8 years and of all the cottages we have rented, Crawford Cottage has by far been the best! It accommodates our entire group of 25 with room for still a few more. The description is spot on and the pictures just don't do this beautiful home justice! Everything has always been clean and the owner and her maintenance staff are ready to take care of anything needed! Ms. Crawford is accessible and always interested in taking care of her guests as if they are family. I can't wait to get our next vacation planned at Crawford Cottage! While we are in the OBX, we always enjoys visiting Jockey's Ridge, Wright Brother's Museum, Manteo, and my mother's hometown of Windsor, NC (Bunn's BBQ, the Livermon Petting Zoo, Bertie County Peanuts, and the Cashie Wetlands Walk). Our favorite eating places in Nags are Millers by the Water and Sugar Creek, and we always make time for Mutiny Bay Goony Golf!

Thank you again, Ms. Crawford, for sharing your family home with us! It means so much to be able to continue creating memories with our family and friends!

Crawford Cottage Stay

LOVED this house, especially the location! We all loved the age of the house. It has a antique feeling. There is a separate cottage part also, which we loved as well. The room that is all the way at the end facing the ocean was the best because you can hear the ocean and with the breeze you can keep the windows open. The house is spacious for a large group too!

The only issue was the noise. If you have a room under the kitchen you are most likely to hear footsteps. Same with the room on the same floor as the kitchen, you will hear the noise from the kitchen. However, that would never stop me from renting again.

Maria and Dan are amazing and were extremely helpful with any and all of our needs. There was an incident where a hole was placed in the hot tub and The Crawfords are taking responsibility, seeing the age of the hot tub. I understand that it was no ones fault, although we were out of a hot tub for a couple days but things happen!

Overall, I love this house and how it feels like home. A huge thank you to The Crawford family and the manager, Dan.

Highly Recommend

We stayed in the Cottage last week with a large group, we filled the house, yet didn't feel like we were all over each other. The property is amazing and has everything you need for your stay. Any issues were addressed timely and without hesitation. Maria has been amazing throughout the entire planning process this past year.
If I had any complaints it would be the beach access, as it is not as close as most would like and some in the group could not even make it to the beach but did utilize the deck on the boardwalk to the beach to be able to enjoy the views of the ocean.
Thank you Maria for making the house a very enjoyable place to stay in Nags Head.
I'd like to say we will be returning, but not so sure we can get this large group together like this again. I highly recommend this property!

A Gem On The OBX

Our Augusta Georgia contingent spent Masters week in this beautiful "complex" in Nags Head. We couldn't have been more pleased. One of the best appointed beach houses we have ever rented. Many little thoughtful touches separate this house from the mainstream. The attention to detail in making the new house gel with the old was especially well done. You don't lose anything as to creature comforts but you still feel like you've stepped back into days gone by on OBX. I highly recommend Crawford Cottage to groups of all sizes. Off season this is a steal for smaller group to spread out and enjoy OBX before it reawakens - and there is no doubt that it can handle a large family reunion with ease during the high season. Thanks Maria for sharing your lovely generational property with our family

Always an amazing time at Crawford Cottage

I've spent a total of 5 separate weeks at the Crawford Cottage over the last several years, and I can confidently say this is the most perfect beach house I have every stayed in. Located right on the beaches of Nags Head, the property has a wide enough space between the two decks that you essentially have your own private space. Walking distance to a Food Lion for food and supplies as well as so many amazing places to eat meals and get treats! The house is incredible, with comfortable sleeping for 25+ people and super cool places to hang out and relax including 2 pools, hot tub, rootop deck, back porch, balcony, huge living room and kitchen, the list goes on and on. The house is beautiful, always in perfectly clean condition. The owner has always been very responsive and attentive to us before, during, and after our stay. For those looking to spend time in the Outer Banks and need to accomodate a large group, look no further than the Crawford Cottage!


Girl's Retreat

We had a great time spending the Winter seaside! The place offered a home-like vibe with lots of amenities including a heated pool and a gorgeous overlook of the ocean. Highly recommend!

Ashton K, 07/24/2018

Family reunion

Great time was had by all 28 guests ranging from 2 months to over 70 years. The trek to the beach was tough for some of us older folks, but worth the hike. The pool area was where we lived for most of the week! Could use more and better seating. There were plenty of lounging areas throughout the house if you needed some quiet time. Very nice ,clean home,very well equipped. Marie, should be very proud of her home and cleaning staff.

Can the indoor pool be used in the winter months

Asked On 06/20/2017 Answered on 06/20/2017

The indoor pool can be used in the winter months however it is not completely enclosed and does not have a pool heater so it will not necessarily be warm.

How many square feet is the outdoor pool?

Asked On 07/08/2017 Answered on 07/10/2017

29' x 15'

Is is two separate buildings or does it just feel like one continuous building? The #D tour makes it hard to tell.
