This place was next to T.L's Country Kitchen, so I took a picture of the sign.
I can't get the outerbankscamping link to work, so the only information I have comes from the sign, which says "Eff"
"RV tents welcome" and

More photos in travelogue (click the link above), details later.
We stayed in the tower room Turret on the second floor, the 'extruding' round one you see from photo, as I like something unique (shape, architecture style, etc), plus a round room gives you more window light; also its light deco.
This particular room is light and airy, with very light/pale sage/foam green wall paper, with white furniture, off-white carpet, unlike all other rooms with very traditional deco: dark and floral etc, if that is your cup of tea, choose those. I do not remember much about the bathroom, but it was also in light color, not exceptionally large, but big enough.
It has a small garden where you can have your breakfast (also in the dining room) or just sit there day dreaming. The breakfast is typical American (by whatever definition). There also a living room and sitting room where many antiques (or replica) are displayed. The lady owner (wife) converted a few Russian teapot into lamps, interesting. Not sure if they serve skim milk (that we always wanted).
The whole neighborhood is rather quiet, we were there in May. The location is good, very short walking distance to the waterfront, where restaurants (some good ones), galleries, shops, cafes gather. We also walked around in the neighborhood in the evening, did not feel unsafe at all.
In May, the front garden was full of HUGE fragrant roses, I hardly see such HUGE roses. You can sit in the rocking chair on the veranda in the evening, chatting with others, including owners/neighbors.
The owner couple used to be park rangers, and they know the outerbank area well, so a good source of info, IF you need any. A few ladies/girls there help them out.
It has its own parking at the back of the garden for its customers.
It does not have a safe in your room.
To get to the beach, you have to drive.
