“We love Rena's Cottage, have stayed here many times, closse to family and a fun place to stay.”
Reviewed 17 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Like that we are only 2 houses away from family. Close enough to any tourist locations that we would like to visit and close enough to a beach for us also. As we are all family we really enjoy Rena's Cottage because we know we are helping family and it is always just a home away from home.

It is a very convenient place for us to stay, & it is so nice & peaceful. Lorraine Tillett makes us feels like part of her Family & Mr. Ira Midgett is a Wonderful person. We love Renas Cottage!

Had everything we needed!
There were four of us giving us each a place to relax in our own way.
Lovely big fenced in yard. Lorraine was a delight and gave us information on points of interest!
The Cottage was clean and neat and comfortable.
Lovely front porch could watch horseback riders go by.
The fire whistle brought memories of my childhood!
Being able to do our laundry right there also a plus!
Thank you Glen!
We all enjoyed Rena's Cottage and would love to visit again.

“A Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed 27 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016
2
people found this review helpful

This cottage is a wonderful hidden gem on Roanoke Island. Located in the town of Wanchese (pronounced Wahncheese), it is a short drive from Nags Head and the Cape Hatteras National Sea Shore. If you're looking for a quiet spot, off the beaten path, this is the place for you.

With a queen size bed and four double beds, this cottage can sleep 5 couples easily without feeling like you're on top of each other. The kitchen is fully equipped so you can cook without having to go out to eat every night.

If you're planning an Outer Banks trip and don't feel the need to pay premium rental fees to "walk onto the beach", this is the spot for you. It is an economical choice while also being close to lots of attractions including The Elizabethan Gardens, the NC Aquarium, Manteo Festival Park, The Lost Colony Outdoor Drama, the Wright Brothers memorial and the Cape Bodie and Cape Hatteras lighthouses.

Book a stay at Rena's Cottage, and you won't be disappointed!

Liked best: Sitting on the front porch swing in the evenings and watching the locals ride by on horseback.
Liked least: The shower in the upstairs bathroom is a little cramped.

“Country home in a quiet neighborhood”
Reviewed 19 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Nice "historic" home off the beaten path. Very clean. Nice stay. Bring your basic essentials, i.e., paper towels, toilet paper, hand soap. Had to make a run for these basic supplies as soon as we arrived. Although, it is an "historic" home, furniture should be updated a bit for comfortable seating. Swing on front porch was the best.
