Manteo cottage description

Whenever, your vacation plans are being made... or a wedding is in the planning - it is a good plan to secure your time at Clemons' Cottage. Once you have decided that the Outer Banks and Roanoke Island area are to be your destination, reserve your dates for the comfort of a cottage nestled in the quaint historic Manteo waterfront area on Roanoke Island. You get to be private yet convenient to all this area has to offer.

Roanoke Island, the Town of Manteo, and Clemons' Cottage are the perfect places from which to explore the Outer Banks of North Carolina. You have a days adventure in either direction ... south to Ocracoke and Hatteras Island...north to Corolla and Duck...or...simply leave the car parked at the cottage and stroll to all of the historic areas of waterfront downtown Manteo and Roanoke Island Festival Park.
But remember, there is only one Clemons' Cottage, so when you have determined your plans, it is a good idea to also secure those dates. We have taken reservations in as much as a year in advance.

Clemons' Cottage is the perfect retreat for enjoying this area and the Town of Manteo. If you plan to attend a wedding at the Elizabethan Gardens, we are a short ride away. If the wedding is at the Manteo Waterfront or anywhere in the Olde Towne Manteo, we are a short 'walk' away. If the reception might be at 108 Budleigh...we are but a pleasant stroll away and it is short miles to Mallards Marsh, Roanoke Island's newest reception site.

Clemons' Cottage is indeed in the heart of town, yet so private. Fourth of July is a magical time, with the ship Elizabeth II lolling in the water and the fireworks overhead. Makes you realize how it all came about. You will be walking distance to all of the festivities. Most any reason is a good reason to visit Roanoke Island and the Town of Manteo.

When planning your vacation, secure your reserved time as soon as you know your dates. No concern for hurricanes as Clemons' Cottage guarantees full refund of evacuated dates whenever mandatory evacuation is ordered for Roanoke Island.

Clemons'Cottage is located on the corner of Budleigh and Uppowoc Streets, next to a two story historic house. Years ago this charming cottage was moved to the site from the shores of the Outer Banks and thereafter served as home to many of the original families on Roanoke Island.

Now it has been transformed into an enchantingly private cottage for visitors to our island and carries with it a true island experience. Hopefully, it will become 'your island cottage' in the years ahead, as an annual vacation holiday destination on Roanoke Island. Clemons' Cottage is a non-smoking dwelling.

From the back porch, there is a picket-fenced yard with shade trees. Here is where your island chairs await you. It is a perfect setting in which to relax and reflect on your day's activities and to contemplate your adventure for tomorrow - or set up the barbeque for a casual lunch or dinner. All of the equipment and supplies are provided for the barbeque the meal.

Your pet is welcome to join you, but must never be left unattended unless in his/her own travel kennel. Of course, when exercised on the grounds or in the area, you will pick up after him/her. There is a pet fee.

Clemons'Cottage is within walking distance to downtown Manteo and the waterfront. From this location, you may walk along the waterfront where all manner of restaurant is to be found, as well as, a luxurious full-service spa, art dealers, jewelers, potters, quality specialty shops, and museums. An early AM stroll to the Coffee House for its many options of coffee or tea, along with some very fine pastries. Stop at the Manteo Bookseller across from the Coffee House.

It has the best ambiance of all book shops - pick out a book or magazine from a vast selection for all ages. There 2 bikes for guest use at the cottage, and if more are needed, bicycles are available for rent at the waterfront. Bike paths extend the length of Roanoke Island. The Pioneer Theatre is a block and a half away, with movies nightly at 8:00. Nearby grocery stores are reasonable and fully stocked at all times. Everything in historic Manteo is a step away and the cottage provides a secluded haven following your walk or day's adventure.

Roanoke Island Festival Park is also close by and well within walking distance. In addition to the tour of the Elizabeth II ship, Museum, and Museum shop,indoor features provide entertainment on a rainy or blustery day. During the summer months, the park has concerts on a regular schedule. We provide beach chairs or mats for your use when attending the evening programs. Roanoke Island Festival Park is a genuine hub of Roanoke Island activity. You will feel welcomed by the congenial staff and friendly volunteers.

We have enjoyed the preparation and decoration of this enchanting cottage for your comfort and pleasure. There is a selection of DVDs and VCR tapes for you and your children available in the cottage to enjoy while visiting. We enjoy our guests and look forward to your visit with us.
