The Roanoke Island Inn delights on every level. The staff is friendly without being intrusive, and they make every part of the stay enjoyable. The public spaces are welcoming and gracious, while the room we had was comfortable, relaxing, and beautiful. We were on the garden side, with a bay window and a very comfortable bed. This spacious, clean, and most of all, liveable room is an easy one in which to relax.
Our only issue with the room, and this is really minor, is that bedside plug-ins for technology are becoming pretty necessary, and they're at a premium in these rooms. It's not much of a problem, since we're going to start traveling with a power-strip. I just don't want my Kindle going dark when the book gets to the good bit.
The second floor breezeway between the two parts of the Inn is one of the most delightful spaces I've ever experienced, and we spent a whole rainy morning up there in the rocking chairs reading, drawing, and looking at the beautiful world. The views of garden and sound are both lovely relaxing. One morning we ate our breakfast in the folly, and at that point, I thought I might never be able to tear myself away. When you stay at the Inn, you are within easy walking distance to restaurants, shopping, Festival Park, and the harbor, and Manteo is full of charming nooks and crannies to explore. We will definitely be back!
