From hosting dreamy weddings, family reunions and relaxing retreats to serving as a center for community gatherings and events on Ocracoke Island, the Berkley Manor and Barn are go-to venues for bringing people together. Lodging and private events happen all in one place here. Guests can relax in one of the five rooms or two plush living rooms. The rooms showcase a rustic but upscale style that’s reminiscent of the Berkley Manor’s early days in the 1950s, when it hosted private events. The modern amenities today, including a full-service kitchen and WiFi, leave folks feeling right at home, and the dining room easily seats 40 people. Upon advanced request, food service is also available.
The estate’s event space, known as the Berkley Barn, regularly welcomes the islanders for different happenings, from storytelling sessions to dances and community meals. The space can hold 200 visitors, and the high ceilings, large fans, gas heaters and working fireplace make a comfortable and inviting environment. The Berkley Manor is located in Ocracoke Village, across the street from Silver Lake.
