We enjoyed our three night stay in Manteo. Nice, clean cottage. Not on the water. But a short walk to downtown. The Endless Summer Cottage owned and operated by the Island Guesthouse and Cottages is, as my wife would say, "cute as a button". Small but well stocked and quaint; fairly new and in excellent condition. Our only gripe was that both bedrooms were upstairs with a bath between. But that bath only has a tub; no shower. So we had to make the trip downstairs for the shower. In any event, yes, I would recommend the place without hesitation.
