This place was perfect for us and our corgi for a quick getaway. We arrived to 3 bottles of wine, crackers cheese and olives about 530. The house smelled freshly cleaned and it's nice that it stays unlocked (your key goes to your room alone). This place truly reflects the casual beach atmosphere that is the Outer Banks. I remember...

We have stayed at the Sandbar for couple of days. The place is extremely clean, conveniently located right across the beach and close to everything. Love the nautical décor. Mike, Beata, Kelli and Princess were wonderful hosts. We will be back again.

We booked this B & B for 6 nights with Beata. Nice lady, helped us with reservations and followed up to confirm. We arrived and were disappointed with the outside - drift wood and coastal decorations all over the place, pool littered with toys. Not to mention the dog poop everywhere around the property! Checked in, went to grab a... More

Ms. Padma I appreciate every review we receive from our guests. However your review is far from what have really happened. Yes, our bed and breakfast is decorated with coastal items, but we are on the beach and that is what you will find anywhere in costal region. All of our guests love the décor and we always get lots... More

We stayed at the B&B recently and had an “ok” time, but it was our vacation so we were hoping for a lot better. There are many five star reviews (which we read before booking), but we suspect they must’ve been written by dog owners who don’t mind the wear & tear and hair that comes with dogs. We were... More

Our bed & breakfast is cleaned by professional crew. Our Health Department scoring for cleanliness is 99 points. Health Department inspects places for hairs as well, and if our place was covered with dog hairs the way you describe, we would have not been in the business. Mike McVearry More

We came here for our honeymoon and it was absolutely amazing! The Mermaid room was beautiful with a great porch for relaxing. I was first drawn to the Sandbar because of it's positive dog-friendly reviews, and it did not disappoint. Our dog was treated wonderfully by the staff and we loved having visits from Princess as well. The location right... More

We stayed at the Sandbar Bed and Breakfast for 2 nights the last week in May. The weather was perfect! The house is very cute and the people working there to greet us were very nice. It was very convenient for us, as we could walk across the street to the beach. There's also a great frozen yogurt place down... More

This was my 2nd trip to the Outer Banks and this time around opted for a B&B instead of a hotel. The owner and his dog were very friendly and greeted us upon arrival. Our room faced the ocean; which was very nice but the road could be a little noisy. We had our own deck to sit out on.... More

Had a great stay for a couple nights. Enjoyed the extra amenities they had-pool, bikes, etc. Tvs needed some updating, but we weren't worried about that because we were not in the room for much of the day anyway. Location was great because it was close to the beach and restaurants and the shop next door was great for beach... More

The glowing reviews and the high price somehow made me think that this would be a special stay at Nag's Head. I thought long and hard about even writing a review because the manager, whom I saw briefly, was such a nice person. However, this B&B was not a good match for me. It is on a busy street between...

"Disappointed" - I am sorry to hear you are disappointed. But I've read your review and I think there are positive signs there. The opening sentence "Glowing reviews" are from 95% people that stayed here. Our price, we feel we are competitive for what we have to offer. We are not a motel.

Restaurants, shopping and art galleries are within walking distance. Local attractions are all close by. The owner lives on the third level with his dog. The inn is managed by Beata Faulkner.
