"4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 10, outdoor shower, upstairs kitchenette Built as the Queen Elizabeth Guest House in 1940, this quaint, spacious, and historic house has a natural charm. It offers an alternative to the more contemporary houses that are available in the nearby beach locations. The house is equipped with beautiful hard-wood floors, and wonderful light, comfortable sofas, 100% cotton sheets, down comforters, plenty of dining room chairs, well-stocked pantry, kitchen dining nook, and shady side. One of the downstairs bedrooms has a king and the other has a queen size bed.
Small upstairs bedroom now has a queen-sized bed. The bunk room has a bunk bed (queen on bottom, single on top), plus a full-sized bed. Kitchenette upstairs. The yard is completely enclosed by a white picket fence, with plenty of space for children and pets to run.
A newly built, completely enclosed outdoor shower is great for washing off after the beach. There is a large magnolia tree with a swing in the front yard and lovely landscaping around the house. Another highlight of our home is that it can easily accommodate 2 families. The main kitchen is downstairs.
The upstairs kitchen is simple but includes a small fridge, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker. The village of Manteo is delightful, with plenty of activities in town, as well as additional activities throughout the northern Outer Banks. Our house is in a quiet neighborhood within a pleasant, five-minute walk of coffee shops, restaurants, bookstore, movie theater, shopping, Roanoke Island Festival Park, NC Maritime Center, eco-kayaking, and the waterfront docks with a replica of a 16th century English ship. Located in the center of historic Roanoke Island on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, this Nantucket-style village is connected to the NC Aquarium, The Island Farm, the Elizabethan Gardens and Fort Raleigh National Park by a delightful and meandering bike and walking path.
The house is a 10-minute drive to the Nags Head beaches, a 20-minute drive to the Wright Brothers' First Flight Site, and convenient to journeys to the famous Corolla, Bodie Island, Hatteras and Ocracoke Island lighthouses. Historic Downtown Manteo has become a popular location for weddings and family events."
