  • Quiet and Relaxing

    "We had a wonderful stay at The Cottage! We had traveled to Roanoke Island to do research for a book my husband is writing. The Cottage gave us a wonderful base to come home to each day. The house was warm and inviting. The décor was very nice and everything was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with anything you would need to have meals in. The beds were comfortable. It was great to have a washer and dryer right on the first floor. We had everything we could ask for. My only suggestion would be grab bars in the bathrooms to make it easier to get in and out of the wonderful soaking tubs! Thank you for letting us enjoy a nice vacation in your beautiful Cottage on the Hill!"

  • Beautiful beach cottage

    "What a beautiful, relaxing cottage in a great location! We loved the cottage and all of its décor. It is well maintained cottage and the photos accurately show its beauty. It was a great place to relax in the evenings with the family and dogs. Its location is in the heart of the Outer Banks and an easy access to the Northern or Southern part of OBX. Sharon was great to deal with. She sent the information by mail and email and responded quickly to any questions we had. I highly recommend the Magnolia Cottage and hope to return soon."

    "We literally JUST Left this beautiful home... And we are soooo sad! 3 girls just home from college and me (mom!) wanted to spend a few days hibernating and reconnecting. We hit on the PERFECT soft landing! This home is gorgeous! SUPER GREAT SAFE location!!! 4 large bedrooms (super comfy beds!), clean, super bright with incredible endless water views! We walked all over pirates cove on the walkways that go on for miles with incredible views! Starry nights were so fun with the super large CLEAN hot tub- again with water views just feet from you! Numerous beaches just minutes away - grocery and TONS of restaurants and shopping! We LOVED everything in this beautiful, comfortable home! We will DEFINITELY BE BACK! Checking dates now!!! Thanks!!!!! ?????"

  • Charming....Historic....Just Beautiful!

    ""Picky" is an understatement when it comes to my selection of a rental home for my family! This beautiful historic home won't disappoint even the most discerning renters. It certainly surpassed all my requirements in finding a home away from home! My family rented this "beautiful" historic home set in the heart of Manteo for a summer weekend in June. The house is a block or two away from the Manteo waterfront... boardwalk, shops and restaurants. You can park your car when you arrive and walk and bike anywhere around town. With regard to the house....immaculate and tastefully done. It is cozy and quiet, a decor of period antiques to match the house, and large enough to accommodate your family and friends. Did I mention the back screened porch for morning coffee...or the manicured yard complete with blooming flowers...or maybe the naturally shaded back yard by pecan trees and fresh growing flowerbed herb garden is your taste!!! Even with all this...I believe the most outstanding attribute to this rental home is it's owner Yvonne. Yvonne is the friendliest, most caring rental home owner I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. She went above and beyond to make my family's trip to Manteo comfortable and fun! Rent from Yvonne just once and I'm sure you'll be tempted to return. I know I will return....hopefully sooner than later. Enjoy!"
