#1 of 8 B&Bs / Inns in Manteo
Travelers' Choice
White Doe Inn was born out of a lifelong love of traveling and exploring the beautiful homes of people kind enough to host us. We bought a beautiful 19th-century home and spent two years renovating it before opening our doors in 1995. You’ll get the entire getaway experience here staying in one of our eight rooms and enjoying a four-course breakfast each morning. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or just taking a trip with your special someone, there’s always something for you to enjoy here. There’s nothing we love more than hosting people from all around the world, and we hope to add you to that list soon enough.

I had to detour on my way to Ocracoke and I am so glad I did. Pamela Gluton welcomed me and provided such wonderful and caring service. The Inn was simply amazing with plenty of old world charm yet modern conveniences. This is a must stay! Thank you, Pamela!

Property's Favorite Review
Great warm friendly staff in a very comfortable accommodation and in the middle of a small historic town of Manteo NC Outerbanks. Restaurants, retail all within walking distance. We got in room massages. Staff took great care of us. We had dinner on site one night and breakfast every morning. I felt like I was a kid again being taken care of by my parents except here I was aloud to have a few drinks in the library at night! We will return.

If I could give 10 stars instead of 5 trust I would in a heart beat. My husband and I checked in on Sunday night and checked out on Friday morning and it went by so fast but it was the best five nights ever. Even with Covid, everything was perfect. 1st things first is if you are wanting to get married whether it be an elopement or a wedding up to 30 people, this is the place to do it. The staff here was so attentive to me and my family the day of and everything they did for our special day was PERFECT beyond measure. From the mimosas to the Hors d’oeuvres made for our cocktail hour were spot on. 2nd if you enjoy southern breakfast then this is your place, the 4 course meal every single day was SPOT ON. It was enough to fill you up so when you left to explore you weren’t hungry until after noon... 3rd the inn itself was absolutely gorgeous, it was so cozy and beautiful I cried as soon as we walked in because it was everything I hoped it would be. Our room (East Lake) was something else as well, I told my husband I couldn’t wait to take a bath in the claw foot tub and then relax by the fire place and let me tell you I did that a lot. I guess what I’m trying to say is The White Doe Inn is/was an absolute dream and I would recommend it a million times to anyone looking for somewhere to stay down in Manteo. The people, the staff, the food, the atmosphere were all amazing and we can’t wait to go back on our anniversary. ❤️

This is an amazing B&B! I happened upon it when Highway 12 was closed during my visit to OBX (thus preventing me from reaching the house I rented) and safe to say this was one of the best last minute change of plans. The place was absolutely beautiful and Pam was the best. She gave me some great recommendations of things to do in both Manteo and Nags Head, as well as was also super flexible as my travel schedule was subject to the reopening of the highway causing me to stay two additional nights. The breakfast was also amazing and due to covid, they were put in to-go boxes. In addition, I have severe food allergies and they were able to easily accommodate them, which is always a major plus for me. They also had complimentary wine and snacks in the afternoon that you could enjoy in one of the many outdoor and indoor seating areas. (Be sure to bring bug spray as OBX has bugs everywhere!) All in, I would highly recommend and I plan to go back for a night or two during my next visit to the OBX.

Midweek Wedding Anniversary getaway is what my wife Hayley and I were seeking. NEWS FLASH!!!!! Found it. This place is amazing. We placed our weekend bag( eventhough it was midweek) in the Tower Suite and began to make memories. Pam and Peanut became instant family to us as we were welcomed into this charming getaway place. The grounds are cozy with little nooks for romantic conversations nestled outdoors and indoors. The room was awesome, especially the glass bar with candlelight that separated rooms. The service was exemplary. Homemade snacks, gourmet coffee/espresso, wine and beer, and most importantly warm joyful smiles from the staff whenever we had encounters with each other. Oh, since this is a B&B,  breakfast is amazing( Lee is awesome). From this location, we walked to tours and quaint little shops. We biked down the streets to experience local life. It was the perfect getaway for our wedding anniversary. We highly recommend and cannot wait to return to this wonderful place. Honestly I wanted to erase this review because I like that it's a secret.....lucky for the readers I wont.
