Year-round Weekly Rental by Owner

A charming three bedroom cottage located on top of a hill in maritime forest with privacy, comfort, and walking path to Roanoke Sound. Upstairs Jack and Jill bath. Relax on the quiet beach at sunset or kayak on the shallow water of Roanoke Sound.

It is a perfect vacation rental to visit Roanoke Island and the beaches of the Outer Banks. This unique restored cottage is located at the end of a private road in a pristine maritime forest. Cruise along the bike path (bikes furnished by owner) that runs along the corridor of Roanoke Island. Visitors can enjoy the Manteo waterfront, Island Farm, NC Aquarium, The Lost Colony, and The Elizabethan Gardens. Roanoke Island, centrally located, is on the sound west of the barrier islands of the Outer Banks. Beautiful beaches and the new aquarium on the pier are located within a 10 minute car ride to Nags Head. Explore the northern beaches to see wild horses roaming, head south to the island of Ocracoke by ferry or take trips to state park, private preserves, or national wildlife refuge.

The first floor has wood floors in the living room, dining area, fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel range, full sized refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher, and a lovely master bedroom with queen bed. A bathroom with washer and dryer is located next to the master bedroom. The second floor has two bedrooms, one queen and one with twin beds attached by a full bath. Linens are included. Two very large decks overlooking a view that reminds you of the mountains. The home accommodates six people.

One of a kind experience in a magical place

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage on the Hill was more than we could have asked for! The location is unique and secluded, and provides access via a short pathway to the sound. The cottage is a lovely and well appointed home that is warm and inviting. While I am a frequent visitor to the Outer Banks I have never seen such a distinctive and beautiful location. We were welcomed with a perfect home and a large bouquet of fresh local flowers. We highly recommend this Roanoke Island experience!
