You may choose to have your breakfast in our dining room, on the veranda, in one of the private garden areas, or in your room.

Words From Our Guests

Spacious Guest Suite at Our Manteo North Carolina Inn

Jewel of Manteo

“There are not enough stars in this space to register the quality of our experience. We suggest adding a sixth star for this extraordinary place and its even more extraordinary service. As for Pam the innkeeper, you do not have an aunt or sister who would treat you better. She is omni-competent with a soft, friendly demeanor. You will be spoiled from the moment you arrive to the morning you leave. Manteo is a great OBX stop; the White Doe Inn the jewel in its crown.”

Incredibly Clean

“Hands down, the best place we have ever stayed! The staff was incredible – so helpful, kind, and just all around great people. The breakfast was amazing, the beds super comfortable, and everything was incredibly clean. The staff went to great lengths to keep everything constantly cleaned. During this time of Covid-19, I greatly appreciated their efforts to keep us safe and I truly did feel safe during our entire stay. We can’t wait to go back!”
