Enjoy a summer evening experiencing The Lost Colony, the Tony Award winning outdoor symphonic drama that portrays the history of Roanoke Island and a mystery that remains unsolved to this day. The Elizabethan Gardens, The Island Farm, Roanoke Island Aquarium, and Festival Island Park with the Elizabeth II ship tour are all within a five-minute drive of the cottage. Renowned beaches, a world-class marina, and historic lighthouses are also close at hand and can make for great day trips. Prefer to stay close to "home?" Take a leisurely stroll up and down the quaint streets of historic Manteo. Enjoy the architecture, gardens, shops, dining, and ambiance of a small waterfront town that is increasingly difficult to find.

Clean and quiet, however just the basics.

  • 3 of 5

The cottage was clean however it only had the basics. The wifi didn't work, there was no iron/ironing board, no TV except for Netflix. I had to notify the owner for extra towels. If you have a large SUV parking is difficult. I would not stay there again.

Cute!

  • 5 of 5

Nice little cottage. Very clean and well kept. Nice updated bathroom and good size shower. It is a quick and easy 5-minute walk down to the waterfront for shops and restaurants. Cottage is right off the main road, but it was remarkably quiet at night and street noise was never a problem for us. This is a nice option for anyone wanting to visit Roanoke Island and the Outer Banks. I recommend Ortega'z for the Wasabi Shrimp Tacos while you're here! Yummy! We would definitely stay here again.

Great property!

Walking distance to Downtown Manteo. Very clean. Has everything you need for a couple and is a good value for the price. Also, Manteo is very centrally located in the Outer Banks.
