“Affordable and Comfortable”
Reviewed April 5, 2009

A very cute B&B and certainly very affordable for the Outer Banks/Manteo area. I was very surprised at the lack of personal service we received during our stay. We could have literally gone the whole time without seeing the owner(s). The breakfast was poor and I have had better at 3 star hotels...it was cereal, bagels, and a store bought pastry. The ice maker didn't work the entire time we were there so we had to keep going to the gas station to purchase ice. The room, however, was very nice and it was an attractive B&B. I probably will try other places before returning to this one, though. The location was great if you want to just stay in Manteo.

We decided to book the Cameron House because it looked quaint and had a great location for downtown Manteo, as it's only a short walk from the harbor.

Three of us stayed here; my wife and I and my mother-in-law. The rooms were great; my wife-and-I had an upstairs suite, whilst my wife's mother had a great ground-floor double.

The inn was really comfortable, although we were thrown at first because there was no-one there to meet us. Instead we were left to our own devices to find the rooms and make ourselves comfortable. Not a big issue, just a little odd.

In the morning, breakfast was a fairly meagre and impersonal buffet: muffins, cereal, coffee, fruit juice, toast & bagels. Nothing home-cooked or home-baked.

Having visited quite a few B&B's in North Carolina, from coast to mountains, we were a little disappointed by this.

The Inn is great. Very comfortable. Easy access. But the service just felt impersonal.

We had a wonderful time during our two-night stay at the Cameron House Inn. The house is absolutely beautiful and so comfortable. The cookies and endless tea/coffee/drinks/fruit/popcorn were a nice touch, as were the free bikes available, though we didn't have a chance to use them. We will certainly be back!

If you like Arts & Crafts /Bungalow styles this is the one B&B to pick.
Manteo is a nice quiet town in which to unwind.
The owners and managers were available when needed but not intrusive.
The ONLY complaint that I have is that the Internet was not working at all for two days at the Inn. Other than that it was a perfect vacation.
Can't wait to go back!

Stayed December 2007
