Lost Shaker of Salt - Reviews
Here is what our guests have to say......
Well, you wonder why you ever go home....
Your cabana is adorable, and is very well stocked, more so than I would have ever
expected. The bed is super comfy, and I have to say, having linens and towels
provided is a def plus that cuts down on what you need to bring along. My husband
and I decided to go to OBX for our honeymoon because we've never really done an
all out vacation just the two of us, and never went to OBX without family or friends.
As twenty-somethings, the cabana was the perfect size for the two of us. Next time
we will be bringing along our mini dachshund Diesel since the area really is so pet
friendly. Thank you again for letting us share in your piece of paradise, and we will
be back within the next couple years!

Our week at LSOS ended in July, 2009. We had great weather the entire week and
the Atlantic was the absolute best we have seen it. The water was actually clear
most of the time, and we found the sand to be finer than the northern shore. It was a
great beach time and quality Outer Banks location. Also, Hatteras Village is
relatively quiet so you are not bothered by the traffic or rowdy folks.
You can tell that Erin has put a lot of thought and planning into making the cabana
attractive and serviceable-for example, there were amenities in the kitchen we had
only hoped for and an outdoor shower that other cabanas did not have. Our
neighbors said we were fortunate to have a raised ceiling that they did not have. We
were quite comfortable and enjoyed relaxing time on the top deck with a variety of
drinks, both in the morning and evening.
We ate in most of the time, buying fresh seafood from Harbor House Seafood,
which has their own daily catch and will prepare steamed dishes for you if you don't
want to heat your kitchen. The only restaurant we tried (2X) was Quarterdeck about
5 miles away on the left in Frisco, which is family owned, has local catch and quality
food at reasonable prices. We understand that not all restaurants on Hatteras serve
local catch and can be really pricey.
We give LSOS an "A" for an overall grade. We enjoyed the Hatteras location, the
access to the beach, the space to park the car in the shade, and the extras Erin has
added. It was really a nice experience at a reasonable price for the two of us.

We had such a fabulous stay at the Lost Shaker of Salt!! It was such a cozy place
and SO close to the beach! Our dog loved it! We are planning on coming back
next summer! Thanks for such a great spot to spend our honeymoon!! :)

After a long drive from Knoxville, we were so glad to walk into the Lost Shaker of
Salt. It was everything we thought it would be and more. You can tell that the owners
love the cabana and want you to love it as well....we felt right at home. Even our dog
enjoyed the non-carpeted floors and looking out on the porch at nights! I wish we
would have realized how stocked that they kept the place so that we might have
packed a little lighter. They seriously thought of everything! We spent most of our
days on the beach soaking up the sun and fishing. We are already planning when
to book the Shaker for next year! I had the opportunity to visit another cabana on
the property which my parents were in and the Shaker was 100 times better, hands
down. I highly recommend this cabana for your next vacation....just save room for
me next year in June! :) Thank you for a great vacation Erin and Mike! See you

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!
The location of the Lost Shaker of Salt is awesome!
More often than not, when vacationing at OBX you have to drive to the beach. At the
cabanas the beach is in your backyard. Usually with a vacation rental you have
to bring everything with you; but at the Lost Shaker of Salt there are many amenities
that are provided. It is obvious that Mike and Erin are not just renting their cabana to
make a profit, but they actually take a personal interest in their guest. I can see a
Bed N Breakfast in their future

My Boyfriend and I (along with are extended family THE DOG ) had a wonderful
week at the "Lost shaker of salt" , Beautiful sunsets and views of the ocean, not to
mention also the sound! I highly recommend buying some fresh seafood from
Jefferie's by the docks for romantic dinner on the cabana deck. Also Such a treat to
arrive and have the basics already stocked, coffee,paper towels, toiletries we would
definitely come back again and not to mention we survived Hurricane Hana (just
added a little more excitement to our already amazing vacation!
Thanks Mike and Erin for your added touches.

I can't even begin to tell you what a great time we had at the Lost Shaker of Salt!
Your place is just perfect...so cute and with every thing you need! We enjoyed
sitting on the top deck watching the sunsets and being so close to the beach was
great! Thank you so much for sharing your great place!

We truly enjoyed our visit to Hatteras Island and the Lost Shaker of Salt. If you want
a quiet, relaxing vacation this is the place to go. The cabana is such a pleasant
place to stay and I've never had a rental that was so well stocked. You guys really
thought of everything and I do mean everything. We also appreciate the fact that
you are so pet friendly. Chopper (our mini Doxie) loved sitting out on the deck and
was just glad he was able to be with us. Thanks for all your effort!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Lost Shaker of Salt the week before Memorial Day
and had an excellent time. It's the perfect laid back vacation spot to make
memories! The interior decor was very unique and we loved everything about
cabana including the breathtaking views. An added bonus was that the place is dog
friendly! Thanks for sharing your little piece of paradise!

We had a great week at the Lost Shaker of Salt. Such a quiet and restful place, but
bright and cheery interior for those rainy days when you have to stay in. So close to
the beach, and so nice to have the linen, paper products, cleaning supplies etc
provided. So much less packing to do. The little extras you provide are so nice.
Will come back again. Thank you so much for this very nice, affordable retreat
on the beautiful Hatteras Island, my favorite place.

The Lost Shaker was the perfect getaway for the two of us! The cabana is well
stocked with all the essentials and some extras (DVD's, toiletries, wine glasses, etc).
The location can't be beat and we enjoyed watching the waves from the roof deck as
a storm rolled in overnight. I would definitely stay there again!
Marc & Kate ~ Philadelphia
This place is perfect for couples who dont like to stay in a bland hotel room and
dont need a huge beach house like most are in the area. Perfectly functional, cozy,
and supremely located. I've vacationed in the Outer Banks all my life and enjoyed
showing my girlfriend around during the spring when we basically had the beaches
to ourselves. I try to get back every few years and we'll definitely be looking up the
Lost Shaker of Salt again when we do. Its perfect for a couple who doesn't like stale
hotel rooms and wants a little more privacy and atmosphere on their vacation.
Allen ~ Morgantown, WV
We really enjoyed our stay at Lost Shaker of Salt. The cabana was stocked with so
many things we needed & was nice we didn't have to bring things like beach
chairs,toilet paper, paper towels, etc. The decor was bright & cheery & we loved
sitting on the top deck & seeing the ocean. We had a nice relaxing stay, but the big
exciting event was Dustin asked me to marry him! We loved it & definitely want to

My wife and I had a great stay at your perfectly located, and incredibly cute, cabana.
We highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a little getaway and
relaxation. We sure did, and we have the sunburns from the amazing beach to
prove it! Thanks, Erin and Glenn!
We just returned from a week's stay at the Lost Shaker of Salt. There were so many
nice touches from the stocked toiletries and paper goods to how pet friendly and
close to the beach it was! We truly enjoyed our stay and hope to be back soon!

My boyfriend and I (and our dog Champ) stayed in the Lost Shaker of Salt in late
March. The place was gorgeous and so much more habitable than we feared
(staying in one room can be hard, but this room was so perfectly spaced and
set-up). The sun deck and dining deck were fun to sit out on, and the dog gates were
practical. The area was fun and relaxing, and the fresh caught seafood was to die
for. I would certainly vacation at the Lost Shaker again!
Robin ~ Princeton, New Jersey
My husband and I had a wonderful long weekend at the cabana. It was so nice being
able to bring our dog away with us. The cabana has everything you could possibly
need - toiletries, paper goods, DVDs, games, beach chairs, etc. But best of all, it
has the beach! We will definitely be back to the Lost Shaker of Salt!
Eileen & Matt ~ Apex, NC
We had a very nice quiet stay at the lost shaker of salt. We especially appreciated
how well stocked everything was and how pet friendly the place is. Thanks!
