We stayed at the B&B recently and had an “ok” time, but it was our vacation so we were hoping for a lot better. There are many five star reviews (which we read before booking), but we suspect they must’ve been written by dog owners who don’t mind the wear & tear and hair that comes with dogs. We were... More

We came here for our honeymoon and it was absolutely amazing! The Mermaid room was beautiful with a great porch for relaxing. I was first drawn to the Sandbar because of it's positive dog-friendly reviews, and it did not disappoint. Our dog was treated wonderfully by the staff and we loved having visits from Princess as well. The location right... More

We stayed at the Sandbar Bed and Breakfast for 2 nights the last week in May. The weather was perfect! The house is very cute and the people working there to greet us were very nice. It was very convenient for us, as we could walk across the street to the beach. There's also a great frozen yogurt place down... More

This was my 2nd trip to the Outer Banks and this time around opted for a B&B instead of a hotel. The owner and his dog were very friendly and greeted us upon arrival. Our room faced the ocean; which was very nice but the road could be a little noisy. We had our own deck to sit out on.... More

My daughter and I traveled to the Outer Banks for the first time and we wanted to make it a whole trip of new experiances , so we decided to stay in a B&B instead of a motel... We started planning this trip for October in February of this year. We both looked long and hard online at different B&B's... More

Had a great stay for a couple nights. Enjoyed the extra amenities they had-pool, bikes, etc. Tvs needed some updating, but we weren't worried about that because we were not in the room for much of the day anyway. Location was great because it was close to the beach and restaurants and the shop next door was great for beach... More

The glowing reviews and the high price somehow made me think that this would be a special stay at Nag's Head. I thought long and hard about even writing a review because the manager, whom I saw briefly, was such a nice person. However, this B&B was not a good match for me. It is on a busy street between...

"Disappointed" - I am sorry to hear you are disappointed. But I've read your review and I think there are positive signs there. The opening sentence "Glowing reviews" are from 95% people that stayed here. Our price, we feel we are competitive for what we have to offer. We are not a motel. "However the Bed & Breakfast" was not... More

We had a great stay at the Sandbar this weekend! The innkeeper, Beata and owner, Mike, were so accommodating and friendly. They helped us with parking our boat which made for an easy weekend. The Ocean Room is very clean and quiet. There's a fun happy hour to meet the other guests and Mike too. Breakfast is pretty simple, but... More

The good news is it was comfortable and felt like home. The bad news is it felt like home where I make my own breakfast, and make my own bed, and do my own towels. To be fair, Mike and Princess were on their own vacation, so we never met or saw them, so maybe things are different when they... More

"Felt like home" that's what we intend for the Bed & Breakfast to feel like. "I make my own breakfast" - we serve continental breakfast, which does not require a breakfast attendant. The breakfast attendant sets up the breakfast and happy hour for people to help themselves at their own convenient time. As posted in our welcome letter, placed in... More

We stayed at this b&b with our dog and four month old. House is very clean and we felt right at home. The staff was so accommodating and was not in the way at all. Across the street from the beach and within walking distance to a few restaurants. It was too cold out but the pool looked nice. We... More
