This is a sweet little inn in Manteo. We discovered it last winter and now have spent several nights. What a great find at a reasonable price!
The Outdoors Inn is a small inn with only 2 rooms. I usually choose larger B&Bs or Inns as often the smaller B&Bs don't afford privacy. But Pam and Matt have got this down. They are there to help you out with directions and recommendations, but they also assure your privacy is respected. Both rooms are situated at the front of the house with a nice front porch outside your window. There you can sit out on the porch on the front porch swing or rocking chairs and enjoy a nice glass of wine. The guest rooms are separated from the owners quarters downstairs. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. In the morning the downstairs area is opened up for guest usage where breakfast is served. The B&B is just a few blocks from the water and charming downtown Manteo and its restaurants. Bikes are available for your use as well.
My only 'complaint' lol, is it is hard to sleep in when you smell the those fresh muffins baking and you start to wonder what else awaits you! But don't worry, you can sleep in and eat anytime you want. The Outdoors Inn is very laid back that way. Pam gets up in the morning and prepares a full breakfast which you help yourself too whenever you wake up. No it's not a fancy sitdown service type of B&B with egg souffles (I like those type of B&Bs too) but it's good and filling. As my memory serves me we've had our choice of eggs, sausage, pancakes, fresh fruit, cheese grits, sereral types of muffins, bacon, cereals, juice, coffee, etc. The options vary each day.
My suggestion....book early as rooms fill quickly especially during the summer, fall and late spring.
