About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, One full and One-Half Baths, (Sleeps 4)

ROOMY REMODELED VINTAGE COTTAGE - HISTORIC MANTEO:
Located just steps from the waterfront harbor, this large two-story cottage, is furnished in a colorful and comfy style. Sleeps 4: Perfect for a girls' weekend, a small wedding party or a gift get-away to impress your mother-in-law! Historic Manteo is only a 10 minute drive to the Outer Banks beaches.

RENOVATED & RESTORED IN 2013 :
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.

GREAT KITCHEN:
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.

BEDROOMS:
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.

EXTRAS:
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.

Manager info

About: A travel writer, and publisher, I reside much of my year outside the U.S. My haunts are usually water related -- beaches if I can get to them.

Why Historic District (Manteo, NC, USA):
The house has been in my family for more than 30 years and I grew up on this street (in a different location) attending the local schools. I'm a 9th generation Roanoke islander.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
In the summer, I love walking with my granddaughter, 'JB' to the Saturday morning Farmers' Market where we share a danish and cold drinks and pick out great NC produce. 'JB' loves the weather tower and we check it often. Walking to Poor Richard's for breakfast (love those grits) and reading the Wall Street Journal! Browsing at local galleries -- the old courthouse gallery is charming. Sitting along the dockside late afternoons -- great views of Shallowbag Bay and all the sailboats make for great relaxation. Walk to Festival Park (2 minute walk) for summer entertainment -- take low chairs or a beach towel -- food/beverage allowed. Many performances are for kids. Granddaughter, 'JB' loves them all.
