Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Adorable, quaint, private, lovely Clemons Cottage is located at 406 Budleigh Street, Manteo NC , on very desirable Roanoke Island, OBX. You will enjoy the private garden surrounded by the quintessential white picket fence with arbor, roses, hydrangeas, perennials, and colorful furnishings. If you peek you may glimpse the hidden fairy garden.

Inside you will find 2 bedrooms with comfy beds and lovely linens. A complete kitchen makes Clemons Cottage a perfect option for guests who would like to enjoy preparing some meals while on vacation.

We are in love!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Clemons Cottage. The owner certainly has a decorating flair. It was the most beautifully decorated of any place we have ever stayed. It is a small cottage, especially the kitchen area but was workable for the two of us with our fur babies for a week. What can I say about Manteo - we really fell in love with this little town we had never heard of. It was great for walking the dogs and for us to bike and go out for our morning run. Every single person we met was so friendly and welcoming. We biked out to the end of the island twice and I think took in everything it had to offer. The cottage was clean and the bed was super comfortable. If we return we hope to rent from Sharon again, perhaps at one of her other beautiful properties. She also has a boat you can stay on!

AMAZING, LOVELY, CHARMING, close to everything. Best beds we have ever slept in in 40 years of marri

  • 5 of 5

Simply lovely. The setting is romantic. The house is impeccably clean and well built and cared for. One beautifully decorated bathroom, with beautiful clean linens & soap provided. The beds were better that any Hilton I have ever stayed in. The small kitchen provided everything we needed. Amazing to find such cleanliness these days. The stainless steel pots and pans were immaculate, as were the cabinets. I could have fixed dinners in that kitchen all week. It is fully equipped and paper products are provided as well.

The town is two blocks walking distance. There are many fabulous places to eat, drink, play and even ice cream shoppes. I can't give one negative.

My adult son stayed with us, and he was blown away. He travels for his job.

He stays in Hilton or Mariott. He was very pleased with the accommodations.

Even the off street parking is charming on it's own, with a nature type setting and then places to sit right outside the kitchen. If you want an amazing place to stay, Clemons Cottage is for you. I give this property a 10 x's 10.

A wonderful week at Clemons Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Manteo staying at the Clemons Cottage. It's quiet but close to the waterfront, restaurants and shops. We enjoy the bike paths and riding through the surrounding neighborhoods. Cottage is comfortable, clean, and though small, had everything we needed. We will be back. Thanks, Sharon!

Loved it!!!!

  • 5 of 5

OMG everything was perfect. I was walking distance to my granny's home. The house was clean, comfortable and so charming. I do a lot of travelling and I must say this was the best stay. It gave me a chance to just be with family and enjoy life. They had everything I needed in the home and the owner was so nice and answered any questions or concerns. I requested a early check in but she told me she has a guest the night before. She text me to let me know the home would be available early which was great for me coming in from Atlanta. I could talk about this place all day....Loved it....Loved it.....I will be back.

Impeccable Cottage. Impeccable Service!

  • 5 of 5

Until I found Sharon Watson and Clemons Cottage, I have never returned to a vacation destination twice. Since Clemons? I have stayed there every Thanksgiving for the past six years. I have never ever, not one time, found the cottage to be in anything but perfect condition. It is always clean, always comfortable, and always a joy to call "home" when I am at the OBX. I have two dogs who scream with delight every time we reach the parking lot at Clemons.

This past Thanksgiving, a friend of mine came to stay with me, and the parking area was more than adequate for two large cars. The gardens were manicured and the house was so clean you could eat off the floors. The beds are more than comfortable, satisfying my (now ex) husband's back, which had been broken in a fall from our roof one year.

Nothing soothes me more than to hang out at Clemons when it rains, curled up on the sweet little loveseat with a good book and a cup of coffee. The kitchen is well appointed, and I can honestly say I have never lacked for anything.

Clemons is a sheer delight, and there is a reason why I continue to come back year after year after year. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who is visiting the OBX, and can say with 100% confidence you will not be disappointed in the house itself, or Sharon's obsessive attention to detail.
