Welcome to Breezy Porches, Southern Friendliness & Chantilly Comforts. The Tranquil House Inn is located right on the waterfront in quaint downtown Manteo and is surrounded by beautiful boardwalks, sailboats and the rhythm of Shallowbag Bay lapping the shore. You’re minutes from all the excitement and activity of the beaches, yet you can return to a haven where you can rejuvenate and relax. Built in the style of the stately Outer Banks’ inns of the 19th Century and enhanced with the conveniences of the 21st, the charm of custom cypress woodwork and beveled stained glass will greet you at every turn. Here, you can choose from rooms with canopies, four-posters, queens, kings … even mini-suites with cozy sitting areas and separate bedrooms. A friendly housekeeping staff provides daily service leaving you free to enjoy every minute of your vacation.

You’re greeted in the morning with steaming hot coffee or tea and a complimentary continental breakfast including a selection of pastries, bagels, fruits, juices and cereals. In the evening you’re invited to attend a complimentary wine reception to let you wind down and enjoy the company of your fellow guests.

Reserve a night of your visit to discover one of the finest restaurants in America, right here at The Tranquil House Inn. 1587 Restaurant is committed to creating a distinctive atmosphere where food is prepared with artistry and presented with flair. You’ll find world-class chefs who blend the freshest of ingredients, including herbs grown from the Inn’s own gardens, today’s Atlantic seafood, meats and fowl plus vegetables from the Outer Banks’ finest growers. Each dish is individually prepared and garnished, yielding a combination of flavors to tempt and delight you.

Shopping, sightseeing, history, adventure – it’s all within walking distance. Stroll the boardwalks, hop a charter boat from the back dock for some sightseeing or fishing. Or just lounge on the deck and take in the vistas of Roanoke Sound as you enjoy a good book.
