“Christmas at The White Doe Inn... must be experienced”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2011

Decided to spend the Christmas weekend in an out of the way B&B. Found the White Doe Inn and decided it was the place. The reviews, the website, the pictures, don't do the place, the proprietors, or the staff justice.
We had an amazing time, and the staff were incredible. We have stayed at many B&Bs over the years, but The White Doe Inn may very well be the best of the best on our list.

As an FYI.... Be careful about where you eat for Christmas... Not a lot of places open, and those that are may not be what they advertise since the island is a tourist destination and the winter is the off season.

The White Doe Inn exceeded our expectations of elegance,hospitality, romance and quiet retreat.
We renewed our wedding vows here in a private ceremony and stayed for 5 glorious days touring the Outer Banks. It was a wonderful place to stay, convenient for island hopping and visiting the mainland.
The staff at the inn was exceptional, from courteous and helpful to friendly and relaxed. The breakfasts were delicious, even included a small dessert. We look forward to many more visits to the beautiful and romantic White Doe Inn.

We would highly recommend the White Doe Inn, and in particular, the Garden Suite. It was in a beautiful location, just steps away from the waterfront and our hosts were very accommodating and gracious.

We weren't sure what to expect, as this was our first stay at a Bed & Breakfast and we were delightfully surprised and are now sold on the idea.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay VERY much. The owners are very friendly, the rooms are well appointed, comfortable, and clean, and the inn itself is beautiful. They have bicycles you can borrow and ride around town which turned out to be a very enjoyable experience. We stayed in the Roanoak room, the electronic shower was wonderful. Breakfast was delicious. My wife and I personally love cats but if you don't then you may consider skipping breakfast as the owners cat is always around during this time. This cat is very spoiled and we spoiled him even more with lots of love but again if you hate cats you may not enjoy breakfast. This was a very relaxing and romantic trip and we will DEFINITELY stay at the White Doe again!

Beautiful Inn, set in attractive gardens. This place is really relaxing and the rooms are perfect. Big breakfasts ( we ate ours outside on the patio) and every facility you could possibly want, including a spacious porch on which to enjoy a glass of wine. Highly recommended. pretty little town within walking distance

Very comfortable, large victorian. Rooms are well appointed - the Turret being the favorite! SO sunny and bright, I could have moved right in. The food was very good...but plan on gaining weight! : ) Cute little town to explore. We went the 3rd week in Sept. and it was perfect weather, not very crowded but most everything still open. Check the running of the Ferry if you plan to go to other islands. Our wait was going to be over 2 hours...forget it! Take advantage of the bikes provided at White Doe and explore the island. Very fun!

We travel to the Outer Banks of North Carolina several times a year and have stayed at the White Doe Inn in Manteo approximately eight times. We never even consider staying anywhere else. The house, environment, breakfasts, and especially the staff are without question the finest of all B&B's we've stayed in. We have stayed in B&B's from Maine to Georgia and Tennessee, although we have enjoyed most of them none can compare to the White Doe.
