The cozy guest house in the heart of historic Old Town Manteo is open for guests and is available by the night, week, (book 6 nights and 7th free!). The Neva Midgett House makes for the perfect vacation rental accommodations for your visit to Roanoke Island and the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The Neva Midgett house is listed on the Manteo Historic Home registery. The two bedroom guest home is located within walking distance to all that Manteo has to offer including quaint bookstores, wonderful restaurants, art museums, Festval Park for open air concerts, galleries and interesting shops. In fact, the Neva Midgett House was once a very popular antique shop and well known to residents and visitors alike.

Midgett House is a two bedroom guesthouse offering the perfect combination of privacy, quiet comfort, and easy access to our beautiful historic town. Rise with the sun and go for a jog along the waterfront or relax on your covered front porch with a hot cup of coffee and enjoy the flowers in the gardens.

THERE IS NOTHING MIDGET ABOUT Midgett House which includes the entire FIRST floor of this arts and crafts bungalow. The house can accommodate up to 4 guests. You will find two large bedrooms, one with a romantic king size canopy bed and the second with lovely four poster twin beds. The house is filled with period antiques and oriental rugs for your comfort. There is a full bath, a large fully equiped kitchen including a full size refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, stove, oven and washer and dryer. The comfortable living room features modern amenities including hdtv, vcr, and dvd player. The large dining room will accomodate large family meals or just a fun round of board and card games. From the front door, you will find your own covered porch to enjoy comfortable porch furniture and watch the world go by. The most beautiful beaches in the world of the Outer Banks are located within 5 miles of Manteo. Roanoke Island, centerally located, is perfect for a trip to the northern beaches to see the wild horses roaming freely, or south to the island of Okracoke by ferry. Either way you go, wherever you spend your day, you will return to the privacy and comfort of your own charming house.

The Manteo Walking Tour includes many of the historic homes including the Neva Midgett House. Remember to visit the many other wonders of Roanoke Island. The Lost Colony is performed nightly during the summer months. The North Carolina Aquarium is a quick drive to the original on Roanoke Island and to the new Aquarium opening in May 2011 on the pier in Nags Head. The Elizabethean Gardens are to die for--beautiful.

Hope you can come!

Our stay at the Neva Midgett House was marvelous! From the start, the owner (Sharon) was personable, professional, & so pleasant! We walked to Manteo's Waterfront (great shops, restaurants, Elizabeth II Ship, Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse, etc.) from The House. An easy drive took us to the Elizabethan Gardens (lovely) ,the NC Aquarium (excellent), along Dare County country side (beautiful), and across the bridge to Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head, the Bodie Island Lighthouse, shops, and restaurants right on the Atlantic Ocean!

The easy walks and drives to so many places throughout the area made our stay at the Neva Midgett House marvelous! The house was quite roomy and was decorated with many antiques but it had all the conveniences of modern day life! The towels & linens were plush and there were many supplies (TP, soaps, laundry supplies, etc.) which made our visit very pleasant. We ate our breakfasts on the front porch sitting on rocking chairs with end tables while watching the lovely light porch curtains waving in the wind.

The Clemon's Cottage and The Island Loft were also occupied but we never saw or heard the other renters during our entire stay! We do plan on returning to "Cottages on Roanoke Island." Truly, the house, location, caring owner, and beautiful areas between the Sounds and Ocean resulted in a delightful time for everyone!

Cottage was adorable! The front porch is wonderful - great for people watching. While the kitchen is small, it is well equiped and we really didn't want to cook anyway. Master bedroom is beautiful and the bed is super comfortable. Overall, lovely cottage in a great location (just a couple of blocks walk to "downtown" Manteo with very easy access to the bridge going to the beach).

Enjoyable Stay in Manteo at the Midgett House

  • 4 of 5

Manteo was a great central location for us and the Midgett House delivered. Sharon was a great host and was very easy to work with. Being on one floor was very nice. The cottage had all the things you needed for a great stay. another great thing is it is pet friendly and the town center is but a few blocks away. As a couple with great interest in the local National Wildlife Refuges the location could not have been better. The beds are comfortable and the location was quiet. If safety is an issue the Police Station and Town Hall are right across the street. We enjoyed this lovely cottage and would definitely recommend it.

A Home Away from Home...

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this charming home and loved every minute. The master bedroom was so comfortable that we ended up sleeping in every morning. The front porch was lovely and the location busy which made for lots of peope watching. The kitchen was fully equipped with a dishwasher and even a washer and dryer. The cottage is mere blocks away from the Manteo waterfront which is full of shops and restaurants. All in all an excellent way to enjoy your week in this historic town and I highly recommend it for your next stay.
