Tranquil House Inn
Ranked #4 of 9 Manteo B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 4, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tranquil House. The staff was friendly. The rooms spacious and very clean with comfortable beds. The bathroom was well lit with plenty of room to unpack toiletries.

The afternoon cookies were yummy and the continental breakfast which did include warm sausage biscuits was very satisfying.

The inn has a lovely view. You can walk to all shops and restaurants in Manteo and even to Roanoke Island. It is only a 5 minute drive over the Nags Head.

All in all a lovely stay!

This is a nice little Bed and Breakfast that seriously needs some updating. I stayed here 20 years ago and it hasn't changed a bit - unfortunately. The wine and cheese hour was sadly lacking for decent wine (please, get rid of the Barefoot!) For the prices of their rooms, they could at least have a basic red. Our room had a major plumbing problem - sink barely drained and the toilet had a serious flushing issue. After each flush, the tank top had to be removed and the flapper fiddled with. We just eventually left the tank top on the floor. When we checked out, the receptionist acted annoyed that she had to make note of this. The buffet breakfast was terrible. It would be better to have nothing than to serve what they did. I would not stay here again unless some major changes were made.

There's an old time feel of luxury here. Nice and quiet yet beautiful. Nestled in the heart of the manteo village and also just a walk across the bridge to Roanoke Park. This place reminds me of how lodges were done 50 years ago and it's just got an attention to detail that I like. They don't make'em like this place anymore. A great place to stay away from the bustle of the beaches area and yet that's just a few minutes away. You'll love this place.

The front desk is very friendly and accommodating, felt like home compared to a chain hotel. They had cider and cookies in the afternoon, wine and cheese on Saturday night during a cocktail hour, and a good breakfast in the morning. Rooms were clean and spacious, my only complaint would be that our room just had a view of the street but we had booked it 8 months in advance, which may not matter but was a little disappointing.

This B&B is not on the ocean, but it is on the water with a marina. I stay here once a year for a quiet weekend get-away. The town of Manteo is quaint and there is plenty to do. Lots of little shops. They also supply bicycles for tooling around. The staff is always pleasent and helpful. The B&B has a wonderful restaurant in-house, but there are also several casual restaurants within walking distance. It is worth the visit.

The rooms were large and nicely furnished, but there was nothing special that made them worth the price. They seemed as though they were fixed up 15 years ago and haven't really been touched since. The rooms smelled musty and everything felt just a little damp. The deck overlooking the water was nice, as were the cookies in the afternoon, wine at night, and breakfast in the morning. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay and $211 a night is reasonable for you, then this is the place to choose, but if you are looking to get a really great room for the price, skip this place.
