Thanksgiving Weekend on the Outer Banks, NC

Thanksgiving, less than a month away, is a time for breaking bread, giving thanks and spending time with family and friends. However, sometimes it gets lost in the hustle and bustle of the seasons. Stuffed between October’s fall festivals, apple picking, and Halloween festivities and December’s endless holiday happenings, we may sometimes overlook this opportunity to get away for a long four-day weekend. Whether you want to shop till you drop on Black Friday, relax and reflect on all that you’re thankful for, pamper yourself with a Swedish body massage, enjoy a candle-lit dinner for two, or all the above, the White Doe Inn is the perfect home away from home. Located in charming Manteo on Roanoke Island, NC, we are just minutes from the Atlantic Ocean, which means restorative ocean breezes, soothing surf sounds, and fresh-caught seafood.

But that’s not all. Friday, November 24, is the opening night of Elizabethan Gardens’ Grand Illuminations. This begins the celebration of WinterLights – 22 nights of holiday lights and sights – combining the warmth and comfort of food and drink with the beauty of hundreds of thousands of twinkling lights to offer you a festive evening in the gardens. So, book your stay with us today, experience the beauty of the gardens, and enjoy our exquisite bed and breakfast this Thanksgiving. You will be thankful you did!
