One of the Top 2 places to stay on the Outer Banks! This waterfront resort resembles those old seaboard inns that were part of 19th-century Manteo; yet it dates from 1988. Rear porches face the water, boats bob at anchor in the marina, and an entrance way opens onto the charming historic core of Manteo. Guest rooms are spacious and furnished with reproductions of antiques. Bikes are available for guests during daylight hours, and wine and cheese are served each evening from 5 to 6 pm. The hotel’s 1587 Restaurant offers not only excellent Continental and cuisine modern dishes, but also a water view.
