Indulge in Luxury at Our Exclusive Inn on Roanoke Island

Ideally located on Roanoke Island in historic Manteo, North Carolina, our waterfront luxury hotel boasts breathtaking views of Shallowbag Bay from each of our twelve unique guest suites. Our water views and tranquil feel are what make us a premiere destination on the Outer Banks. We invite you to experience the comfortable luxury in your spacious suite and the sophisticated elegance throughout our entire secluded property.

During your stay with us, we recommend that you treat yourself to a relaxing massage, a fabulous new hair color, a soothing pedicure or an invigorating facial by booking online at HONEY, located just across the street from the inn. And remember to see the innkeeper for an exclusive 10% discount card at this full service day spa … there are so many choices!
