The innkeeper Dee was very friendly, laid-back, and helpful. There is a beautiful view from the (second floor) porch of the Inn looking out over the water (great for sunrise!). There are lots of snacks and drinks available in the pantry, and the grounds are lovely. My room was very comfortable with a king bed, a tv, and an easy chair. You are within walking distance of the shops in downtown Manteo and the farmer's market on Saturdays. Nags Head is just across the bridge and the National Seashore is a 15 minute drive. My only complaints: the carpeting in my room (? all rooms) was chintzy, and the room rates are very expensive, especially for late September!!
