Hosts Pam and Matt are simply wonderful. The accommodations are very comfortable and clean. Pam's breakfasts are from scratch and simply delicious. This is our go-to spot in Manteo. We go there a couple of times each year and are never disappointed.

We just enjoyed a wonderful weekend at The Outdoors Inn. We were very pleased with the accommodations. The space was perfect for us (couple) and we slept well. The hosts were very helpful with restaurants, local info. Breakfast was great. The homemade chocolate banana nut muffins were wonderful!! Also used the provided bikes too sightsee and to ride back/forth to... More

The picture of the gate out front says it all. You are sort of welcome. Oh, that's as far as the gates opens. Good luck maneuvering it! Guests are patrons, not guests. The host was visible once, when WE engaged him. The hostess could not be bothered. "Breakfast" as they define it on their web-page doesn't exist. The eggs were... More

Lovely little inn, in a lovely little town (Manteo) , on a lovely island (Roanoke Island). Homey and comfortable, with very knowledgable innkeepers. Got great recommendations on restaurants, local attractions (a really nice farmer's market on saturday), and places to fish. You can also rent kayaks from them. We were planning on staying 3 days, and extended it another night... More

I should say "this is a terrible place - go somewhere else" ... so there will be a room available when I want to come back. Which will be soon. But that would be bad karma so here we go. Matt & Pam share their place just right. Completely authentic to why you're staying at a B&B. And what a... More

This is a sweet little inn in Manteo. We discovered it last winter and now have spent several nights. What a great find at a reasonable price! The Outdoors Inn is a small inn with only 2 rooms. I usually choose larger B&Bs or Inns as often the smaller B&Bs don't afford privacy. But Pam and Matt have got this... More

Should have written this review a long time ago. We stayed in April 2010. This is an excellent place to stay at a great rate. We had the yellow room (there are two guest rooms). It was spacious. The bed was comfortable. Everything was clean and well maintained. Breakfast was excellent each morning. Always something fresh baked. There were bikes... More

“There are only two rooms, both on the first floor with windows looking out onto the pretty gardens. A quiet, pretty front porch with rockers and chairs, a back patio where you can eat breakfast outside if you wish. Not on the water, but a short walk to downtown shops and the waterfront. A quiet street of lovely houses and pretty gardens. We plan to go back.”
