Is Bald Head Island only for the ultra rich or celebrities? While there are large homes, accommodations there are available in many price ranges. No motor vehicles are allowed; these are parked back on the mainland. Golf carts and bicycles are used for transportation. It's a place of quiet, not glitzy night life such as that found in Atlantic City, NJ, or even that of the not too distant Grand Strand in SC, that includes Myrtle Beach. People go there to tour Old Baldy, as the lighthouse is called, to enjoy the nature preserve, play golf, swim, etc. To get away from crowds and just enjoy nature is how North Carolinians describe Bald Head Island's charm.
Bald Head Island, off the coast of North Carolina, is an island reached by a 20 minute ferry ride. Despite Ms.Halls's claims of exclusivity and her parent's home being across the street from the Gosselins' rental home, North Carolinians, of all incomes have been taking the ferry there for "day tripping" as well as overnight or week stays for decades! Anyone, yes that's you or me, can enjoy a visit there. There are overnight accommodations for one night or a week, and they stretch across quite a difference in price ranges. Private homes tend to be more secluded with trees retained before construction began, or planted later.

Yes, celebrities visit there for the quiet, but they are not given special treatment by police, shop owners, or local residents. For decades it has been known for its "live and let live" attitude. Quite a different place than that described by Ms. Hall.
