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

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at the Sandbar B&B this October (2012). The place is clean and fresh even though it is very, very pet friendly. All the guests had dogs when we were there (including us with our 5 lb Toy Fox Terrier). There is ample area to walk your dog (and clean up after yourself there... More

We stayed here for a wedding in July. Our rental car flooded in a downpour right before we got to the B&B. The owner, Mike, drove us to the rehearsal dinner, tried to jump the car in the AM and when my husband was not back from towing the car back to Norfolk, Mike drove me to the wedding. Talk... More

We spent June 4th - 7th at the Sandbar and really enjoyed ourselves (married couple with spoiled dog). We had stayed away from the Nags Head area in recent years due to the lack of pet friendly accomodations. We were pleased to find the Sandbar accepted "well behaved pets". We met the Owners, Mike and his dog Princess, at check-in.... More

I stayed here for a few days before Memorial Day weekend. It was a nice place in a great location. Jockey Ridge Sand Dunes were only 5 minutes away, and the Wright Brothers National Park is about 10 minutes away. The beach is only a block away. I was impressed by how clean and uncrowded the beach was at this... More

There is a lot to love about this place. I would describe the atmosphere and decor as "funky chic" - bright and cheerful, and full of local color. We, all three of us, including our Cocker Spaniel, Pearl, warmed up to it immediately. Mike and Princess made us feel welcome. The wine and cheese set out for us certainly helped!... More
