We visited the Tranquil House Inn for an overnight getaway in October. We originally had reservations at another inn but were transferred to this property when the antique bed in our reserved room was broken by the previous occupants (I don't make this stuff up). The Tranquil House was right in the heart of Manteo, within walking distance of the... More

We have been coming to Manteo for the past three years for the Bluegrass Festival. The first two years we stayed at the Elizabethan Inn because it was one of the host hotels. It is a nice hotel but we were looking for something a little closer to the festival so we booked at the Tranquil House Inn. It is... More

This was our second stay at Tranquil House and they were just as accommodating this trip. We didn't have reservations but were welcomed as last minute guests again. The relaxing atmosphere here and the friendly staff make this a place to return to year after year.

Wow! My fiancee and I really had a great time at the Tranquil House. I actually proposed the weekend I was up there (on a boat...Check out 'Sail the Outer Banks' nearby) and wanted to make sure that everything was very nice. I spoke with Jaye a few weeks before coming down, and she gave me some great ideas of... More

Spent a Thursday and Friday getaway weekend in Manteo. Stayed at Tranquil House Inn on Waterfront. The location of the Inn is spectacular for Manteo. You can walk most everywhere from the Inn in Manteo. The staff are very friendly, the rooms clean, and well equipped. The back deck is delightful to sit on and enjoy the view of the... More

Despite how EXTREMELY outdated the place is we go anyway because we love how Jay, the lady who checks us in treats us when are there and we love the... More

A Trip Advisor recommendation resulted in a 3 day weekend that was wonderful. The staff are 100% friendly and accomdating. The room was actually larger than envisioned having seen the web site. Room was spotless, bed was very comfortable and the view - amazing. Quiet cove on the north side of Roanoke Island right in the heart of downtown Manteo.... More

Had to be on the Outer Banks for a couple days to do some book signings so I decided to stay in Manteo because it was centrally located between Duck and Buxton. I was looking for a quiet and quaint place and the Tranquil Inn fit both criteria to a tee. This place is older, gets a lot of use,... More

The staff looked out for us and kept us updated with weather reports and made sure we parked our car so it was not washed away...they made... More

We were looking for somewhere to stay on a weekend which seemed to be fully booked as it was peak holiday season. We walked in and amazingly they had rooms available for one night. We would have liked more but the manager spent 20 minutes calling local hotels for us. We didn't find anything that time but I was so... More
