Thank you for your nice review. I am glad you liked the Outer Banks and The Wooded Island Retreat. Thank you all for being such great guests.
Yes, we have a well. It is 210' deep. You all are the very first to mention the water. I am so sorry about the smell and the taste. It meets all the health codes. Our water has been tested. My husband was born on Roanoke Island. So were his grandparents and his mother. We began building our house in 1972. I am not aware of the taste or smell. The local residents are use to it. I wash the linens and towels on HOT water with TIDE Gentle Breeze and use a little bleach. From time to time I will soak the towels in a special whitener. Everything is clean. I appreciated your comments. We have Johnnie's grandparents' home on Airbnb. It was built in 1914. It is larger and there is city water over there if you decide to return. It is listed under The Farmhouse, Manteo, North Carolina.
I am glad you all had a nice anniversary.
