Last minute substitution saved the day!

  • 5 of 5

Last year we stayed at the cottage and enjoyed ourselves immensely! This year due to storm damage to the cottage the owner shifted a reservation around to offer us the main level of the house instead. It was a generous offer and kept us from scrambling last minute to find new accommodations! We enjoyed the house and the close proximity to the things we needed during our trip. We are anxiously awaiting the restoration of the cottage to book our 2017 stay!

Perfect fit for a quick weekend trip

  • 5 of 5

House was clean and easy to access. Great location, just a short walk to downtown Manteo's shops and restaurants. Comfy and cozy with all the amenities one would need for a weekend trip. Will definitely consider staying here on our next trip to the area.

Great for a long weekend at the beach

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my boyfriend for a weekend getaway, and we loved it. The decor was nice, the kitchen had everything we needed to make breakfast in the morning, and we were close to the beach without being surrounded by other tourists. I highly recommend Virginia Cottage to anyone looking for a quiet beach getaway.

Excellent!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this adorable cottage and it is extremely well kept! The location is in walking distance to the sites and restaurants in the area. We literally had not one single complaint! Did not get a chance to meet the owners, but would highly recommend this vacation rental to anyone!

Cute! Could use a few little things..

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I loved this cottage! Very clean and plenty of space for the two of us. I was surprised that the cottage did not have extra toilet paper aside from the roll on the holder, no dish soap, no hand soap, only 1 extra trash bag, and no full length mirror. None of this is a huge deal, however, it is a bit of an inconvenience to have to go out to purchase these items. I feel like it would not cost the owner/manager much money to have these items provided and would have made a big difference for us in terms of hospitality. More of a friendly suggestion than a complaint though! Overall great time in OBX and this place was great for us.

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.
