“This is THE place to stay on the northern end of the Outer Banks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

First off, the Inn is perfectly situated in Manteo, near downtown and docks (walking distance) and delicious places to eat. It is also easy to access the beach over the nearby bridge and the water and beach are just gorgeous any time of the year, but summer is the only time the water is warm enough to swim and then only later June. Don't let that stop you, however, because the beach walking and shell collecting is fun and sun bathing and surfing, especially board surfing is good. The Inn itself offers lovely, roomy accommodations in a restored house and a most abundant breakfast, complete with cooked to order eggs, great pastries, and local fruit. The InnKeepers also are the editors and printers of magazines on the other towns and attractions in the area, so are an abundance of helpful information. I can't recommend this stay more highly.

Room Tip: All the rooms are perfect.

I would highly recommend the Cameron House Inn if you are visiting the Outer Banks. We stayed in Creef, a downstairs bedroom, which was beautifully decorated and well equipped. It had a nice bathroom with a good shower. The staff at the B&B were extremely friendly and helpful. There were lots of nice extra touches - free cold and hot drinks all the time, fresh made cookies available, lots of good towels, comfy bed. The breakfasts were excellent with a choice of hot items as well as fruit, cereal, toast etc. The inn has lovely gardens and is walking distance to the waterfront and bars and restaurants. We will definitely use the inn again in future.

My husband and I spent our 26th anniversary at Cameron House Inn. We had a wonderful time. We especially enjoyed the warm hospitality of Bern and Susan. They are both very knowledgeable about things to do in the area. They also took time to make a delicious breakfast each morning. One morning we had quiche, bacon and fresh fruit. Another morning we had biscuits and bacon gravy with eggs cooked to order. There were fresh homemade chocolate chip cookies always available. We loved the cool evenings by the fire and the afternoons swinging in the front porch swing. The house is well appointed and was restored true to its original character of craftsman style architecture. We really slept well in that Kingfisher bed. If you are looking for a place to rest and refresh your body, consider The Cameron House Inn. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: The Kingfisher Room is my personal favorite. However every room is very nice.

We enjoyed the Cameron House Inn. It is in the village of Manteo and just a 2-3 minute walk into the center of town. There are plenty of shops and restaurants and a great boardwalk along the waterfront. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy a view of the sound. But it is hard to leave the great back porch at the Inn. Comfortable rocking chairs, a fireplace for the evening, and surrounded by Jasmine. We spent a couple of hours on it every morning and evening. The rooms are very nice and the bed was comfortable. The average rating is based on the breakfast - the food that was supposed to be hot was cold and none of the items served were worth mentioning - the quiches, cakes, and other items were all from the grocery store. I expected more given the room rate.

Room Tip: Bring a bottle of wine to drink on the back porch in the evening. The town theater is just a block...

The Cameron House Inn in Manteo is a first class experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay there and hope to return soon. The room was spotless, and well appointed, and the staff was friendly and accommodating. This will definitely be my B&B of choice next time I visit Manteo.

Room Tip: This is one of the few B&B I have found that has a with a room with two beds.

This past weekend we got to stay at the Cameron House Inn. I have stayed in quite a few B&B's but this was the absolute cleanest stay by far! My husband and I enjoyed riding bikes all through Manteo and along the water, then we returned and chatted by the fire with some coffee and cake which was left out for our convenience. We loved the Jasmine filling the air. Such a neat, relaxing and homey place! We hope to return again!

Room Tip: The Avocet has a great tub and shower!

Our first stay at a bed and breakfast was a wonderful experience! The Cameron House Inn is exactly what we were looking for--clean, friendly, and laid back. The staff there were pleasant and helpful, but not overbearing. Just the right amount of privacy but a chance to socialize if you so desire. Manteo is a charming town and we look forward to going back again soon! We highly recommend to anyone staying in the Roanoke Island area.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are more private but we enjoyed our time in the Avocet room
