The OBX BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL (Oct) and the OBX MARATHON (Nov) finish line are steps from this large two-storey vintage cottage. Sleeps 4. Impress your mother-in-law with a 'get-away' gift! Perfect for a girls' weekend. Fits the bill for a small romantic wedding party. Waterfront cafes and shops are across the street. Furnished in a colorful and comfy style. Historic Manteo is only a 10 minute drive to the Outer Banks beaches.
RENOVATED & RESTORED
With 2 new baths and remodeled kitchen, the cottage has dark hardwood floors throughout. Elegant white wallpapers and tall old-world ceilings in the living room and formal dining room.
The kitchen is bright and colorful, fully equipped for preparing a fresh seafood dinner -- new microwave, coffee maker, toaster-oven and blender for making spring soups or summer smoothies.
A charming full bath and restored bedrooms are on the second floor. All have quirky and quaint ceilings and closets – typical of vintage Manteo – and are furnished with large comfy beds (California King or Queen) and Manteo antiques. The house is centrally heated and air conditioned.
A high-ceiling sun-filled library is perfect for your early morning coffee and the daily paper – hardcopy or electronically delivered via the internet connection. (wifi)
Adjacent to the large living room is our petite television room with a 32” LED TV.
AND THERE IS MORE:
From the cottage, it is only a few steps to the Manteo public boat ramp, the Manteo Yacht Harbor and the waterfront and street front shops and cafes. During the summer months, a Saturday Farmer’s Market is held in the dockside public park – locally grown produce, local honey and local seafood. The nearby weather tower is a must for youngsters as the flags indicate the current (and changing) weather.
The following attractions are all within a short 5-minute drive: Island Farm, NC Aquarium, The Lost Colony and The Elizabethan Gardens.
