My wife and I stayed here over the 4th of July with our two small dogs. Having never been to the Outer Banks before, we didn't really know what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised. First, I think the location of Cameron House is pretty close to ideal. You're within easy walking distance of the harbor in Manteo, with shops and restaurants and a lot of boardwalks around the water. I was quite impressed with the town. There might not be a ton to do on Roanoke Island, but that's exactly the point. You're on a quiet side street in a quiet town, but within easy driving distance of the entire Outer Banks. Every day we visited a different landmark or beach, and it was so nice to come back to a nice quiet home base. In the future, I would not trade Manteo for any location on the outer islands, which can be quite busy and crowded. A little less so this year given the pandemic, but there were still tons of people out there. Manteo is the ideal median. The Inn itself was also great, if you're looking for something quaint and quiet. Because we had the dogs, we stayed in the Sandpiper Room, upstairs in the annex building (attached to the owners' house, actually). That was pretty nice, because we weren't bordering any other rooms and our dogs wouldn't bother anyone. It was a bit weird to enter the stairway to our room through a screened porch shared with the owners' house, but we never actually saw them, just their dog. The main Inn house itself was pretty quiet, but well stocked. One of the best things about the Inn is that they keep a constant stash of drinks and snacks and desserts refreshed in the kitchen. Can't say how many times we grabbed water bottles or drinks there before heading out in the July heat. "Snacks" also included fresh baked cookies every day and some really awesome cakes and cupcakes, which were constantly being replaced. Wherever they got those cakes from would also be a very worthy stop for visitors. Breakfast at the Inn was basic, but sufficient, and Michael was helpful with tips for visitors on where to go and where to eat out. The back patio at the Inn house was really enjoyable, although the July heat made things pretty toasty during the day. Our dogs would wake me up early, so I spent a lot of quiet morning hours sitting on the back porch. If it were colder, there was a fireplace that would have been nice to sit by. The Inn's cat, Jack, is quite friendly and will probably hop up into your lap if you sit there long enough. I imagine the rooms in the main house might be a bit noisy if the Inn is full, but the Sandpiper Room is isolated and therefore extremely quiet. Also mitigating against any real socializing with other guests were the pandemic adjustments made by the Inn to keep everyone safe. We only really ever saw other guests at breakfast, for which you need to sign up for a time slot the night before. If/when we return to the Outer Banks, I would definitely look into staying here again. It would be particularly fun with a group of friends or family. And I can't recommend Manteo enough, unless you want to be right in the middle of the craziness on the outer islands.

My visit to this bed and breakfast was very nice. The house is beautiful and everything was super clean. My room was comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was lovely and it was nice being seated with other guests. The back porch had a fire burning in the fireplace when I arrived. Treats and drinks in the guest fridge where a really nice touch. Downtown restaurants and bars were only a block or two away. I would definitely recommend this Inn!

Super clean. Very enthusiastic, friendly and helpful hostess, Chris. Good food. Very nice. I don't like B&Bs. You cannot control your room temperature. The walls are thin. The floor creaks. The bathrooms are not modern. The stairs are steep and narrow. Great location. If B&B is you, this is your place.

Wonderful location within easy walking distance of downtown Manteo waterfront, restaurants, art galleries, shops. Cute house. Rooms are small but comfortable. No WOW factor. Nice touches--delicious cookies and dessert (triple chocolate cake and pecan pie were the choices during our stay) available all day. Frig with sodas and bottled water. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate available. No staff there to greet us (nice note on the unlocked front door welcoming us, and one for the couple who arrived the next day). Chris, manager, and Abbie, reservations person and baker, are very pleasant, but only around in the mornings. Breakfast was good (scrambled eggs and bacon one day, pancakes and mystery sausage the next), but not gourmet, and not 4 courses. Jack, the resident outdoor cat, was very friendly when we sat outside on either the front or back porch. Eco-friendly in that there were no single use plastic bottles of shampoo or body wash (dispensers mounted on the wall--but no mention of the brand of either). We enjoyed our stay, but felt it was overpriced for what we got.
