“Fabulous B&B!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We spent the last 2 nights of our Outer Banks vacation at the White Doe Inn which was wonderful. We were warmly greeted by Sarah who checked us in and gave us the tour, including the goodies laid out on the table. The breakfasts outside were delicious and so enjoyable talking with the other guests and Bob and Bebe. Sarah made reservations for us at a delightful waterfront restaurant for dinner. Our stay could not have been better...lovely innkeepers, great accommodations and food and you meet the nicest people at B&Bs. Pete and Myra Rounds

This Inn was a culmination of perfection. Manteo is the perfect setting on a quiet island with beautiful weather. Combine that with the kindest people who we now feel that we've known all of our lives and you will find a little bit of heaven. I can say that we had the most relaxing and pleasurable trips to one of the most unique places we've stayed. The measure of a good time is the sadness you feel when it's over. This was the feeling as we left today. What a great memory and a joyful realization to know that we will return to Manteo to visit with Bebe and Bob and their wonderful staff very soon. Thanks to all for for making our 37th anniversary so special. We highly recommend the White Doe Inn.

Wonderful property, wonderful people. Open and welcoming. The inn is beautiful. Breakfast was served outdoors and was excellent as was the afternoon snacks. A little wine bar was available that we used to entertain guests. Our room was impeccable. One nice touch was that every day our room was serviced perfectly while we ate breakfast, I used the bikes made available to the guests for a nice ride.

Room Tip: Turret Room!

We stayed at The White Doe Inn for three nights, using Manteo as our home base while visiting the Outer Banks area. We were very pleased with our accomadations and the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Sarah greeted us upon our arrival and Bob and Bebe were excellent hosts. The town of Manteo was a nice surprise for us as we had focused on adventures along the Outer Banks from Corolla to Cape Hatteras. The waterfront in Manteo offered many quaint little shoppes that were well worth exploring. We accomplished all of our planned activiites as well as some add on adventures in the area. The White Doe Inn was an excellent choice for both a relaxing extended weekend and a central point to explore the Outer Banks area.

When was the last time you saw a TripAdvisor rating spread with 135 Excellent and 13 Very Good and 5 average and 2 poor's. I haven't see one like this because you can't please everybody.

The two poor's were about the breakfast. Well maybe those two people from 2009 and 2006 should stay somewhere else because the breakfast was 5 star. Four courses and all great. But then again it was southern. Truly southern. And they were accommodating as I did not want the fancy main course and asked if I could have three poached eggs and guess what, they were perfect. I had a B and B in January reject my requesting three boiled eggs. Said it was only what was on the menu for the day.

But let's not dwell on the breakfast. The house is about as charming as it can be. AND for the first time in 10 B&B this year, a pillow top mattress. and a great shower. We had the third floor, a bit of a hike, but there is the second floor and it was quiet up there. very quiet.

The afternoon dessert was to die for.

And the WiFi was fast. The grounds were beautiful.

Did I mention the wonderful bathroom products. There were the best.

I guess the best compliment is, We'll be Back.

Room Tip: Read the Description of each room Carefully as there are eight of them and ALL DIFFERENT.

We baulked at the cost but this seemed the best place to stay in Manteo.
We were welcomed by Bebe who explained everything and offered coffee and the most delicious carrot cake we've ever tasted. Afternoon tea like this is available on a help yourself basis everyday.
We booked the basic room which was lovely and had a huge balcony. Only criticism here is that the double bed was too small and should be bigger for the price paid. You have to upgrade to attain a larger bed.
Breakfast was superb and not too heavy considering it is four courses - service was excellent.
It is only a five to ten minute walk into Manteo centre - small but picturesque with a few local bars and restaurants.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and, despite the price, would have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Upgrade to ensure larger bed if you are a couple.

We stayed at the White Doe for one night on our way to Kitty Hawk. It was beautiful and the owners, Bebe and Bob, thought of everything. It was so comfortable and felt like home. The four-course breakfast was delicious and we loved the coffee machine which was available at all hours! The after dinner snack didn't hurt either:)
The owner's cat, Buddy, was an excellent host as well and made sure to greet us at breakfast.
