“Fun as well as peace at the Tranquil House”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

Some of our town residents and friends, couples, were invited to sample the Inn, come for happy cocktails, delicious dinners to savor at the 1587 Restaurant; board games and cards in the evening, and finally rest in appealing, clean rooms, some of which looked out on the sound. .
The next morning we gathering for the continental breakfast with a healthy and tasty offering including the southern favorite of sausage biscuit.
Can we do it again??!!. Its a good thing!!

Room Tip: If you want to party in the lounge, choose rooms adjoining; if not, choose outer rooms, e.g., that o...

On a recent business trip to the Outer Banks the last week of February 2014 I stayed at the Tranquil House Inn in Manteo. What an outstanding pleasure during the so called "off season". The Inn was buzzing with occupants who seemed to be having as great a stay as I was. From check-in to check-out the staff was super! Customer service in all aspects was simply fantastic. My room was huge and comfortable. Wine and cheese at 5 PM was a nice way to end the day. I plan to stay again in the near future

My wife and I stayed at the Inn recently for our first trip alone in 7 years. The Inn, it's staff and the surrounding town and park are just what you need to detach from the everyday turmoil of life. The staff goes above and beyond, to make your stay wonderful. The breakfast is nice. The wine and cheese time is just right! The time you can spend on the spacious deck just gazing out at the harbor is romance in the making. We enjoyed the food in the 1587 as well! The casual atmosphere with 5 star dining was tremendous. We know that our destination for our next alone time is the Tranquil Inn. Our many thanks to the staff of Tranquil House Inn. Your Inn and hospitality rejuvenated our marriage. We look forward to seeing you all again soon!

The room was large and comfortable with a king bed desk and sofa. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Wine and cheese at 5pm was a nice amenity. The 1587 restaurant was great and we had an excellent meal there. Overall a very nice experience.

Finally got back to the Tranquil House Inn after several years. Nothing has changed. It is still one of the nicest places to stay for a relaxing time. Enjoyed breakfast outside on the second floor deck - weather perfect. Rooms were spotless. Amenities as expected. Dinner at 1587 on the first floor of the Inn was "five-star." Manteo is a lovely town and the Tranquil House Inn serves as the perfect base as it is walking distance to all the town has to offer.

Room Tip: Ask for a water view to maximize the experience.

Right on the water and very peaceful. If you like to historic section of a town, as I do, this fits right in. Walking distance to nice shops and restaurants and you can sit on the porch and enjoy the water, boats, etc. They do a nice little breakfast and in the afternoons offer sweets, coffee, and wine, that was a great way to begin the evening. The rooms are a bit older but very clean and large.

Room Tip: They happily showed us a room so we could decide.

This is an Inn in a small Southern Coastal town that is right on the Water. While it does show it's age of over 25 year some...the charm and location more than make up for the slight wear and tear. The staff is awesome..very kind and eager to help you in any way.
The beautiful rustic back deck is a bonus for chatting and enjoying the water view.
The restaurant 1587; serves 5star dinner only and you simply must have dinner there. You can enjoy waterside dining and the staff is most professional and the food selection is excellent.
I don't think it would be the best place for a family with kids but for couples...it is great.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with with a view of the Water.
