Roanoke Island Inn is lovely and we always feel welcomed back by Dee and Sarah. We just enjoyed 4 nights in the Bungalow with our dogs and can't wait to get back again in October. We love the beauty of the island and peaceful feeling we experience when we visit. We always dread leaving, but know we will be back.

Bottom line: Very charming and comfortable, great staff, great location. Minor drawbacks about needed maintenance in the room. Recommended. We spent one night here while in town for a wedding. The beautiful grounds and charming building are immediately inviting, and the staff is very welcoming and friendly from the moment you walk in. When we arrived the proprietor, Dee, was... More

This was my first stay at The Roanoke, but hopefully won't be my last. The staff go above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need. My fiance has stayed here several times, and I was not disappointed. Excellent special occassion get-away distination!

Just completed another fantastic stay at The Roanoke Island Inn. I visited for the second sprig break in a row with my two elementary school age kids. "Dee"'and Sarah welcomed us back and in many ways we felt as if we had never left. The Bungalow looked fabulous. It is tough to imagine the disaster of the hurricane just last... More

We had the pleasure of discovering Manteo while attending the wedding of our friend. Although we had been to the outer banks, we had not been to Manteo before. The Roanoke Island Inn was a great home base to easily walk around Manteo to restaurants and we liked that a lot. The innkeeper we met upon arrival was very friendly... More

Thank you for writing! New mattresses are in the bungalow this season and since you were here after Hurricane Irene last August, there were many things to attend to. The bungalow was first on our extensive list. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in Manteo and look forward to having you stay with us again in the future! More

The weather was poor during our 2-night stay so we couldn't really enjoy The Outer Banks. But we were glad we stayed in Manteo, which was sheltered from the worst of the weather, and the Roanake Island Inn was a good place to be. We had a corner room on the second floor, which was nicely furnished with a nice... More

My family has been staying at Roanoke Island Inn for many years. We love the bungalow, because our dogs are very welcomed there. This year was especially fun because of the help D', the inn keeper was able to give us. We love Roanoke Island, with the beautiful scenery, shopping and restaurants within walking distance of the inn. It is... More

We've been visiting the Roanoke for approaching 20 years. D' is an outstanding host, and I appreciate her helpful attitude and interest in our comfort. Her staff is professional and non-invasive. The Roanoke is one of the few inns around that you can have *total* privacy if you wish. The inn was designed with privacy in mind, yet you can... More

We stayed there with friends in August for five days and loved it. The rooms are spacious, charming and very comfortable. Sleep quality excellent, despite the fact that it was on the ground floor our room was very quiet. D' was very helpful and recommended excursions and restaurants. Great place to stay just a short drive away from the wonderful... More

Manteo is absolutely one of the best places in North Carolina if you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing getaway. The Roanoke Island Inn is one of those places you never want to leave and can't wait to go back. Definately no dissapointments here except for having to leave and go home.
