Made a reservation online today around 1 p.m., got a confirmation number. We were excited and 2 hours later got tickets to the Shagfest in town. At around 6:30 p.m. we get an email from the B&B stating that they were booked up and their 'online booking' was just getting set up....??? What??? Now, we are scrambling to find somewhere... More

We heard about the Scarborough House from a B&B owner in Okracoke Island. We stayed in room #4 which is in the rear of the main house's 2nd floor. Although there is not much of a view, the room was quiet, very comfortable and well appointed with many antique furnishings. The Scarborough House is only about a block away from... More

Very disappointing!! The towels and wash clothes smelled bad like they were mildewed. No door to upstair room and in the middle of the night someone started beating on the downstair down and it scared us so bad we had to call 911. No one came to tell us they were sorry it was a horrible night. I couldn't wait... More

So the room,location, and the grounds are great. Got a King bed room in guest house. Bed was comfortable. Room was clean. Antiques around place were nice. The grounds were neat. Porches facing street and water garden/pond. That's where the charm ends. Yes I know in certain situations you should not bring electronics with you to a B and B.... More

Although the location is very convenient to the waterfront and the room we stayed in was fine, their customer service leaves a lot to be desired. We were met as we checked in so they could collect their money, then we never saw nor heard from anyone again. The continental breakfast which was promised was never there. We rang the... More

Huge, clean room and clean bathroom. Bed was very comfortable. Super friendly owner. Great location. Walked to the heart of Manteo every night for dinner. Saw several live bands during our visit on the 4th of July. Fireworks were great. Great restaurants in Manteo. Some have lovely views of the waterfront. We could easily drive to everything on the Outer... More

My husband and I stayed in the guest house on our wedding night and it was perfect. We loved everything about the room. It was clean, comfortable and the tub was amazing! We hope to come back every year for our anniversary. Great for local staycations or vistors.

We stayed here for our triathlon. Wonderful place and great price. Mrs. Sally and her granddaughter Mrs. Ruth made you feel right at home. Great location. Can walk to downtown Maneto. Rooms were quaint. Breakfast left in refrigator each day. We will definitely stay here again.

We just returned home from a 4 day stay at the Scarborough House Inn, in Manteo, NC and to say the very least, we were thrilled with everything about the stay. The innkeepers were very friendly, We enjoyed the privacy and the room was spotless. We had room #4. To my delight, that was the room I had hoped for... More

My husband and I stayed here for our first anniversary (we were also married in the Outer Banks), and it was a fantastic choice. From the booking of Scarborough House Inn to our arrival, the staff was extremely friendly... and we fell in love with Lucy, one of the resident pups. We chose the king suite in the guest house,...
