Photos and Description of this Nags Head holiday cottage

After the beach come home to this comfortable 3 bedroom cottage with your pet!

UPDATES are being made to the cottage this winter for a fabulous Spring, Summer or Fall stay in 2015!

Walking distance to the beach and the YMCA's awesome facilities. If you're looking for a small affordable family cottage in a quiet location within an easy walk to the beach, then this is it! Very comfortably furnished and well-equipped (including a gourmet kitchen), kept in great shape by an active local owner, the Cooley Cottage offers a quiet yet very convenient location. There is just a short walk to a beach access with a lifeguard stand. Virtually no traffic on this cul-de-sac, yet right in the heart of Nags Head activities, whether it be swimming at the beach or sound, shopping, or a variety of outdoor family activities. Plus it’s pet friendly! Grab those boogie boards and take a short walk to the beach where your family and your pooch can enjoy the Atlantic Ocean at its best. The Outer Banks YMCA has the best outdoor pool on the Outer Banks and is located just 1 block from Cooley Cottage. Restaurants, Nags Head Fishing Pier, shops, and a variety of family amusements are all a short walk away from the quiet yet convenient location of this cottage. This is the perfect spot for those athletes coming for marathons! The cottage is a block from where the November race starts!

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, cozy house. Has all you need. I'm quiet cul de sac. About 5 minute walk to beach. Great location. Allows you to bring your pet. Within walking distance to several great restaurants. Owner is wonderful as well.

Love This Place!

  • 5 of 5

Cooley Cottage is the coziest, beachiest and one of the best cottages we ever stayed in. It is simply wonderful! It offers everything you need (except linens) and more. I like the fact that it is in a cul-de-sac and yet only 2 blocks from the beach. You can tell the owners take pride in the cottage and you can feel the love there as evidenced by great family photos and full size silhouettes of I believe 7 grandchildren in a wonderful secondary space under the house. The hardwood floors are wonderful and simply put it is a great house. It is also in a wonderful location near the best restaurants and shops within walking distance. The added plus is that dogs are welcome. Our dog loves to hop over the waves and body surf, so he had a great time too! I highly recommend this lovely home.

By far the best rental we have stayed in. It is well cared for and a loved house. It feels like home away from home. Loved all the personal touches and the overall location of the house - very convenient to anything you could need! We hope to make it a regular spot! It helps that everyone was super friendly and helpful.

Quaint and Relaxing

Such a relief to come back to a cottage like this after running 13 miles. So relaxing and cozy during April when it was chilly outside. My husband and I had a great time and really appreciated this rental. Thank you!

Cute & Tidy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at the Cooley Cottage aka CCC during our Easter break for 4 days. The cottage is very comfortable and feels like home from the moment you walk in. We were there with our daughter, son in law and two grandsons and had plenty of room and tv options for the little guy. The car port area beneath the cottage is an added bonus space when traveling with kids. Our 3 year old grandson loved digging with his trucks in the area near the dog pen. Everywhere you look there is art work , some from the Cooley family and some from local artist all beautiful and adding to that Home Sweet Home feeling. We met our son & his future wife and inlaws to confirm August wedding plans and found the cottage to be centrally located to our appointments. Engagements pictures at Jockey Ridge were a highlight of the trip with a gorgeous sunset as the backdrop. We met with the caterer at Ortegaz and had delicious samplings, we also had the pleasure of eating at Millers and Tortagas Lie and would highly recommend all 3 resturants. Our only regret was that we had to leave early due to the death of a good friend. Thank you, Margaret for a wonderful time - we will return again in the near future!
