“One of the best vacations in over 26 years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

First time renting a room in a guest house, usually stay at motels. But found this to be way more relaxing. Located on Roanoke sound, The only sounds you hear is the water slapping against the shore. The owners John and Noelle talk to you like your their friend. The room was ok, but if there was one draw back it would be no door on the bathroom and the water had a smell to it, being well water. Although the kitchen was their for our use, we ate out all the time. And last but not least, I can't complain about the price, I wish them well on the completion of their new guest house being built. Thanks again John and Noelle.

My husband and I were in a budget for our honeymoon... This house is perfect for it! The location is very quiet, waterfront with free kayak use, secluded from the hustle and bustle. If you are looking for a place to relax and just lay back, this is the right place for the right price! Take the Roanoke room...

We stayed at this facility. The sweetest elderly lady ran the place. The place was not clean but we decided to run to the store, pick up cleaning supplies and have a great vacation, after all, the view was great. Then came nighttime with all it's creepy crawlers. I had never, ever, ever, ever, ever, seen so many bugs. The sweet elderly lady said, "Oh those are just water bugs". I requested my money back and we did not come out even. As soon as the sun was up the next day we found somewhere else to stay.

Staying at the Booth House and getting to know Noelle and John was the highlight of our vacation. We were welcomed by Noelle and shown around her lovely home. Our room was bright and beautifully decorated, with a lovely view of the Sound. We also had the main floor of the house available for our use--a parlor, great room, kitchen and sun room. It was a perfect place to stay, affording us easy access to the many attractions in the area, while letting us get away to a quiet place when we wanted to.

Second time I stayed at the Booth House. The place is wonderful. The rooms are large and super clean. Noelle and Johnny are American icons. Johnny will tell you about growing up on Ronoak Island. There is a book about the Island and a story about Johnny and his friends hunting and fishing. The house is on the Ronoak Sound. Very beautiful view of the water. Large veranda where you can sit and read.
Its a short drive to Nags Head and the new pier.
