“Nice Picture Spot and Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

You can't miss this place on your way into the Roanoke Island Festival Park. It sits right on the water and is great for taking pictures or painting.

“Very scenic area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

We visited lighthouse and waterfront early am before it got crowded. I was very pretty and quaint little town with shops and boats anchored at water. I enjoyed this little town.

“Reconstructed screw pile lighthouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

This is a free and scenic "must see " when you are visiting the downtown Manteo waterfront. Stroll along the boardwalk, snap some beautiful sunrise pictures and take in the newly reconstructed net shed. The lighthouse Is open daily from 8-5 and is neat to see see some some marine exhibits and to read about the history of the screw pile type lighthouse that was popular in Roanoke and other local sounds over a hundred years ago.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2013

This is a great little lighthouse. We have wedding pictures on it and with it in the background, and it is just such a perfect fit for Manteo. I love that people have their ceremonies here, though I haven't dealt with renting it, so I'm not sure how that experience would be. I think it's just a quaint, perfect little lighthouse.

“A nice little detour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013

I walked by the lighthouse from across the harbor while taking a Ghost Tour. It was evening and luckily I was able to see the lighthouse at work. Provided a beautiful display and, while it isn't tall and purely cylindrical like the typical lighthouse, it was still a sight too see. Something to look out for if you're in the area.
