Some of our town residents and friends, couples, were invited to sample the Inn, come for happy cocktails, delicious dinners to savor at the 1587 Restaurant; board games and cards in the evening, and finally rest in appealing, clean rooms, some of which looked out on the sound. . The next morning we gathering for the continental breakfast with a... More

On a recent business trip to the Outer Banks the last week of February 2014 I stayed at the Tranquil House Inn in Manteo. What an outstanding pleasure during the so called "off season". The Inn was buzzing with occupants who seemed to be having as great a stay as I was. From check-in to check-out the staff was super!... More

My wife and I stayed at the Inn recently for our first trip alone in 7 years. The Inn, it's staff and the surrounding town and park are just what you need to detach from the everyday turmoil of life. The staff goes above and beyond, to make your stay wonderful. The breakfast is nice. The wine and cheese time... More

The room was large and comfortable with a king bed desk and sofa. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Wine and cheese at 5pm was a nice amenity. The 1587 restaurant was great and we had an excellent meal there. Overall a very nice experience.

Finally got back to the Tranquil House Inn after several years. Nothing has changed. It is still one of the nicest places to stay for a relaxing time. Enjoyed breakfast outside on the second floor deck - weather perfect. Rooms were spotless. Amenities as expected. Dinner at 1587 on the first floor of the Inn was "five-star." Manteo is a... More

Right on the water and very peaceful. If you like to historic section of a town, as I do, this fits right in. Walking distance to nice shops and restaurants and you can sit on the porch and enjoy the water, boats, etc. They do a nice little breakfast and in the afternoons offer sweets, coffee, and wine, that was...

This is an Inn in a small Southern Coastal town that is right on the Water. While it does show it's age of over 25 year some...the charm and location more than make up for the slight wear and tear. The staff is awesome..very kind and eager to help you in any way. The beautiful rustic back deck is a... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Tranquil House and had a wonderful time. The room was very clean and the staff attentive and helpful. I have to say, that the housekeeping staff does a great job. The receptionist said that the Inn was 25 years old and while we noticed a little wear and tear, we were amazed... More

In my opinion, this is the benchmark for small inns. Tranquility House deserves its name as well as all 5 stars in all categories. And even though I wince at spending over $100 on any room, this is the exception. The furnishings and decor are cozy and quaint. Rooms are spacious and the amenities are subtle but capable of spoiling... More

This is just a grubby motel. The rooms are accessed straight off the boardwalk. The price was $179 (£119) per night. Vastly overpriced for a motel. We booked months before and asked for a quiet second floor room, but were given room 16, a first floor room between the ICE MAKER, the ROAD AND CAR PARK, which was very noisy.... More
