  • Great history there, excellent photo area. Wine tastings on the griunds during summer festivals, nice walking area, close to the lighthouse also. Go yearly to area. 
  • If you love history, architecture, love stories, ghost stories, hunting.....you will love the Whalehead. .. my 10th or 12th visit...and I want to go back 
  • Visited with family after Christmas. Three teens and two under 10. Everyone agreed it was a highlight of our trip! Docents were lovely. Tiffany lamps and art nouveau architecture were worth the visit....  more »

  • Beautifully restored, this is a must see! Great piece of local history. Small fee to enter ($7 per person I think). If you are into the history of the area, this should be included in your day. A self guided tour takes about 25 minutes or so.
  • I first visited the Whalehead Club in 1997 or so when it was open to the public but not yet restored, and it was enchanting even then. It was great to see it in its full glory. The audio tour was really interesting and engaging (I get bored with that sort of thing, typically), and included nice historical tidbits and sound effects. My boyfriend and I were so glad we took the time to see this beautiful place!
  • The guided audio tour is very nice and complete. The house is beautiful and the people working there are very friendly. They were beginning to decorate for Christmas the day we were there and I bet it will be a sight to see when they are finished.
  • Great tour. Beautiful piece of history. Definitely a must on your trip to OBX
  • A fantastic spot to take family pictures. It's also a neat park to walk around with families. We take our young kids here to feed birds and run around. The kiddos also love to watch locals catch crabs in the sallow water.
