"Our family had a wonderful stay at this charming cottage. We all felt so comfortable here, and we couldn't have had a nicer stay anywhere else I'm sure of it! The cottage was well appointed with all the comforts of home. We loved the privacy, and the private pathway to the beach on the sound. We enjoyed spending time on the private island across the way, fishing off the kayaks, taking the bikes into downtown Manteo one day, and of course the proximity to The Lost Colony was a treat. One evening our family took flashlights and made our way down to the private beach on the sound where we sat and stared up at the stars and listened to the fish jumping in the water. It was so peaceful, and so nice that it was a private space just for us. We love the Outer Banks and we are used to driving around to do things, so taking a drive over to the bridge to the ocean beach was no trouble. The cottage is in close proximity to the fishing centers, the historic landmarks such as Jockeys Ridge and Wright Brothers Memorial, as well as the beach. We look forward to going back to this lovely cottage in the future."

Red sky at night - beautiful sunsets and bright blue sky days!
"I’d like to know if there is anyone who stays at one of Sharon Watson’s cottages that doesn’t fall in love with Manteo?
This was our second time staying in Manteo - our first summertime stay and our first time at Magnolia. Magnolia Cottage is simply wonderful. There were 3 in our group, plus our dog for this visit. Magnolia Cottage is a house one could easily imagine staying in for a long, long, time. A big bonus is that Magnolia has a really nicely appointed kitchen. Honestly, this is a place where despite the excellent restaurant choices within walking distance, one might easily choose to cook up some serious meals at home, and there’s even a gas grill outside in the backyard. Don’t let Magnolia’s more feminine flair fool you - this is a very livable house from the comfy couches in the living room, the three porches, the back patio…to all 3 bedrooms. Then add in the attraction of spending time in the charming town of Manteo and it’s difficult to come up with a better place to be! There’s so much to do that is so close by from sailing, swimming, listening to great music, attending seasonal performances at Festival Park (right down the street) or just wandering through the shops and galleries in town and ending up down at the harbor. We’re hooked!
Sharon Watson is absolutely the best to work with, no matter how long and involved - or how short and sweet your stay might be. 5 stars for Magnolia!"

"This condo was a great location for the convenience of traveling north and south on the outer banks. It was very clean and well kept that made us feel right at home. Great memories of breakfast on the front porch right across from the marina with our friends from Montana. Definitely would stay here again."
