My wife and I visited Manteo for the expressed purpose to stay in the hotel that housed the restaurant 1789 plus it was, used to be, a nice small hotel. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed for the winter and we were the only guests in the entire hotel. The room was nice but tired, a large water bug crawled across...

Spent 5 days here in October. Very tranquil. Clean, quiet rooms. Breakfast was adequate. Location on the water was very nice. Did not try the restaurant (1587) but it always seemed to be popular and busy. Good value! Staff was polite and helpful.

I am in love with Tranquil House Inn and can not wait to return. I have always loved historic Manteo and staying along the water was a treat. Our room was beautiful, clean and comfortable. The property is beautiful.

Clean, quite, friendly, breakfast every morning continental style included, lemon aid n cookies afternoon, wine n cheese every evening. The view from the deck is wonderful It's of Roanoke Island. Stay at least once a year, it's a must! The 1587 Restaurant! Amazing food! This place is great, not fancy, but quaint!

We have been staying at this B&B since 2013. It has a great location and we were told that Room 23 has the best view of the Manteo Marina. The staff is wonderful. The breakfast is average, but welcomed. If you want eggs for breakfast you need to go elsewhere. We stayed three nights this time and had an excellent...

This small hotel is a wonderful location from which to explore the Outer Banks! It's located right on the waterfront in the heart of Manteo, a quaint little town on Roanoke Island, and surrounded by shops and restaurants. From here my husband and I spent a full day exploring the nearby historical sites and lighthouses of the Outer Banks, including...

The Tranquil house has the welcoming feel of Mayberry but yet the beauty of the Outerbanks. The staff treat you like you are family with a smile and friendly greetings. I have never felt more at home away from home. The Inn itself is so quaint with the antique replicated furniture to the beautiful views of either the water or...

We love staying at the Tranquil House Inn when we visit Manteo. This year, we visited during spring break, which was early. We've stayed during the summer and during the winter months in previous years. We love the waterfront view, and easy walk to downtown restaurants and shops. We also walk over to the old Pioneer Theatre to catch movies....
