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.

Very classy and elegant. Stocked with everything that was needed

  • 5 of 5

Property is amazing, loved the private beach access. Everything in the house from the furniture to the Waterford glasses is top notch. The only thing I didn’t like was feeling like my personal space was infringed upon. Something that will not mean anything to most but is important to me is, I like to access rental homes without meeting owners, I do not want a private tour, and I especially did not like having them come to my door the next day of my stay or calling me at 9:40 when check out is 10 am. This is something that most would love to have just a FYI.

Beautiful home with a lovely setting.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay on Roanoke Island at the “Cottage on the Hill” was wonderful. Owners were very friendly and helpful. It was a peaceful setting and the private beach on the sound and use of the bikes made it everything we had hoped for.

perfect home base

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the "Cottage on the Hill" during our spring break. It is away from the hustle and bustle of the main stretch of OBX which makes it perfect for us. We brought our Golden Retriever and even though the water was still too cold for us to go in she enjoyed her private beach every day. Very clean, very comfortable and very nice host and hostess. We will recommend this home to all our friends.

Wonderful location - loved the house and beach access

  • 5 of 5

We just had a wonderful week in the Cottage on the Hill. The house is well maintained and we loved the combination of being away from the buzz of OBX and with private decks and view of the woods on both sides of the house plus access to the private beach - at the same time its just minutes into Manteo town which is picturesque and fun to go for an eve dinner, homemade ice cream or visiting the aquarium down the road. My kids are eight and good swimmers but I still prefer the bay beach access as they can play in the water without the huge waves. We loved the place.

comfortable, secluded spot

  • 4 of 5

Great cottage, centrally located for OBX tourism. Short road to property is in need of repair, however. This is not the owners' responsibility.
