We have been staying at this B&B since 2013. It has a great location and we were told that Room 23 has the best view of the Manteo Marina. The staff is wonderful. The breakfast is average, but welcomed. If you want eggs for breakfast you need to go elsewhere. We stayed three nights this time and had an excellent...

This small hotel is a wonderful location from which to explore the Outer Banks! It's located right on the waterfront in the heart of Manteo, a quaint little town on Roanoke Island, and surrounded by shops and restaurants. From here my husband and I spent a full day exploring the nearby historical sites and lighthouses of the Outer Banks, including...

The Tranquil house has the welcoming feel of Mayberry but yet the beauty of the Outerbanks. The staff treat you like you are family with a smile and friendly greetings. I have never felt more at home away from home. The Inn itself is so quaint with the antique replicated furniture to the beautiful views of either the water or...

We love staying at the Tranquil House Inn when we visit Manteo. This year, we visited during spring break, which was early. We've stayed during the summer and during the winter months in previous years. We love the waterfront view, and easy walk to downtown restaurants and shops. We also walk over to the old Pioneer Theatre to catch movies....

A great location, helpful staff, center of town, and large, clean guest room. We would definitely stay at The Tranquil House again. For the price, we might have expected a bit wider choice for breakfasts, but it was adequate, including, bagels, breakfast breads, coffee, juices, cereal, yougurts,and some fruit.

My family of five stayed here for just one night while we were waiting on our Ocean Front rental to be ready for us the following day in Nags Head. This place was truly a little gem! It's exactly what a small seaside inn should be in every way! The front desk girl was so sweet and accommodating. The view...

Just checked out after only 1 night but would like to stay much longer. Nice wine and cheese reception last evening and a lovely "more -than -continental" breakfast in the waterfront dining room. Each room is different and charming. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Young lady at the desk named Lauren was so very kind and helpful. Waterfront...

The Inn is right on the water, and conveniently located near shops and the park. The room was clean, spacious and quiet. The staff was very helpful, calling me on my cell phone when I was late in arriving.

My husband and I stayed only for a night, but wish we would have stayed longer. We had a room overlooking the marina. We loved being able to walk to everything and there were lots of places to go! The only downside was the furniture is showing quite some wear and tear and should be updated. We also feel the...
