My wife and I just returned from staying four nights at the Island House and we really enjoyed it! The house is lovely and well decorated and the gardens are stunning and well kept. Breakfasts were great, and Jeanne and her staff went out of their way to make our stay comfortable (plus we enjoyed chatting with them at breakfast!).... More

When we booked our stay, we were very excited to be on Roanoke Island and left very happy that we chose to stay here. Jeanne was great, and even nicer to our pup! We didn't have any problems with any bugs, and the mattress we stayed on in Willie's suite was probably nicer than our bed at home! We love... More

Unfortunately, we recently stayed here hoping to leave refreshed. The owner is aware "that some of her mattresses are too soft". How about concave? The itchy bug bites are another matter. Breakfast was ok but would have preferred not to have the owner present and sharing her problems every single morning. I hindsight, we wish we had cut short our... More

I just found this review. I am puzzled, I have never had a complaint on this mattress quite the opposite, most people find my beds very comfortable. The house is treated monthly to keep bugs at bay. We do live on an island and there are bugs, therefore the treatments. I am most sorry that this guest had a dissapointing... More

We stayed only one night, but thoroughly enjoyed it. The grounds are very nicely kept. The house itself is immaculate, filled with all sorts of beautiful antiques and memorabilia. We were in Zena's Room, on the second floor, with private bathroom (shower). This one has an antique oak bed with feather bedding, and complementing antique furnishings of the same quality.... More

We are frequent flyers to this B&B as it only takes us a couple of hours to get there when we want to get away. The house has beautiful old antiques and lots of Coca Cola memorabilia and other interesting artifacts. Jeanne is an excellent host and always makes wonderful breakfasts. My hubby loves her cheese grits and nearly always... More

For a quick getaway weekend I decided to take a trip back to the Island House of Wanchese, and was completely happy with my stay as always. I've been going to this B&B on and off for years now and will continue to return. Jeanne, the Inn Keeper is truly one of the most welcoming and hospitable hosts I've met... More

Website picture made Willie's room look larger than it was. Granted we are tall, but we kept smacking our heads on the slanted ceiling. I booked the room for the tub, but it was really too small to be comfortable and relaxing The main problem was the musty, trapped in an antique store smell with an overlay of wet dog.... More

The room referenced in this review is our suite 18X12, the adjoining sitting is room 10X12. Ceilings are sloped, I always point this feature out to guests, never had complaint Musty Odor??? This building is over a century old, therefore, I am very aware of the potential for odors. I take steps to keep the house smelling fresh. Air conditioning... More

We found this B&B just perfect for us. We stayed a week and could have stayed longer. At first we were concerned about the one bad review listed here but with all the other good reviews we decided to try it. While the owner does breed dogs, they are well behaved and for our entire stay we heard no barking... More

We were so happy with everything about this B&B. We didn't want a beach hotel among the noise and craziness but wanted to be close enough to get to the remote stretches of beach to really relax. Island House was the perfect choice to get us away from nighttime noise and just a few minutes from the major thoroughfares. Accomodations... More

Beach lover in Middle Atlantic? Visit this wonderful B&B on Roanoke Island - away from the crowded beaches of Duck & Kill Devil Hills yet a short (10 min) drive to the gorgeous dunes of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Coquina Beach is a must visit- enjoyed the multitude of private parking areas for beach solitude. The Island House has... More
