This 18-bedroom oceanfront home magically combines grandeur with the feel of the old Outer Banks. The warmth of natural materials abounds in marble, stone and slate, generously tiled bathrooms, granite kitchen and bar tops and tile and heart pine flooring. A commercial-type Viking kitchen and ample dining space make meals a pleasure. Several well-stocked libraries and other private places provide opportunities for quiet retreat. The pool table, baby grand piano with player-piano option, and PA system provide the tools needed for all occasions.

Enjoy sunrises over the ocean and sunsets on the sound from this home’s high elevation and extensive decking. A raised walkway leads you to the large pool and pool house. Enjoy the gazebo dune deck, a chance to see wild horses and ultimately, the ocean. "The Mark Twain" invites you to relax, escape the hardships of everyday life and create cherished beach vacation memories. Approximately 2.3 miles up the beach.

Dogs welcome (1 max., no cats). No additional fee or deposit required.

Special Events welcome in 2021 for an additional $1,500 plus tax. Please contact our office if you would like to make arrangements for a Special Event reservation.

We are currently accepting Advance Property Holds for all available weeks in 2022 in this vacation home. The Advance Property Hold fee is $1000.

"It is a great home. Some areas of the home are showing some age and wear. We had intermittent issues with not having hot showers on the first floor. Overall a good experience, but far from perfect."

"We have stayed with Twiddy for 11 years now. And The Mark Twain is our favorite. It’s more the feeling you have there. The layout, the kitchen, the deck..."

"We had one of the most memorable vacations ever at the Outer Banks this year! First time staying on the 4x4 beach. We loved it! We saw the wild horses everyday and the Mark Twain house was great!"
