Manteo House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

When coming to Manteo, or The Outer Banks, North Carolina, why not stay in one of the quaint Historic Homes of Manteo? The cozy guest house in the heart of historic Old Town Manteo is open for guests April 2011 and is available by the night, week, or month. The Neva Midgett House makes for the perfect vacation rental accommodations for your visit to Roanoke Island and the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The Neva Midgett house is listed on the Manteo Historic Home registery. The two bedroom guest home is located within walking distance to all that Manteo has to offer including quaint bookstores, wonderful restaurants, art museums, Festval Park for open air concerts, galleries and interesting shops. In fact, the Neva Midgett House was once a very popular antique shop and well known to residents and visitors alike.

Midgett House is a two bedroom guesthouse offering the perfect combination of privacy, quiet comfort, and easy access to our beautiful historic town. Rise with the sun and go for a jog along the waterfront or relax on your covered front porch with a hot cup of coffee and enjoy the flowers in the gardens. Hop on your bike and be instantly surrounded by the history and mystery of Roanoke Island.

THERE IS NOTHING MIDGET ABOUT Midgett House which includes the entire first floor of this arts and crafts bungalow. The house can accommodate up to 4 guests. You will find two large bedrooms, one with a romantic king size canopy bed and the second with lovely four poster twin beds. The house is filled with period antiques and oriental rugs for your comfort. There is a full bath, a large fully equiped kitchen including a full size refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, stove, oven and washer and dryer. The comfortable living room features modern amenities including hdtv, vcr, and dvd player. The large dining room will accomodate large family meals or just a fun round of board and card games. From the front door, you will find your own covered porch to enjoy comfortable porch furniture and watch the world go by. The most beautiful beaches in the world of the Outer Banks are located within 5 miles of Manteo. Roanoke Island, centerally located, is perfect for a trip to the northern beaches to see the wild horses roaming freely, or south to the island of Okracoke by ferry. Either way you go, wherever you spend your day, you will return to the privacy and comfort of your own charming house.

The Manteo Walking Tour includes many of the historic homes including the Neva Midgett House. Remember to visit the many other wonders of Roanoke Island. The Lost Colony is performed nightly during the summer months. The North Carolina Aquarium is a quick drive to the original on Roanoke Island and to the new Aquarium opening in May 2011 on the pier in Nags Head. The Elizabethean Gardens are to die for--beautiful.

Hope you can come!

Escaping the northeast for 2 weeks plus in wonderful Manteo!

  • 5 of 5

After being fed up with way too much snow and cold up north, my husband and I were thrilled to find our way to Midgett House in downtown Manteo. Sharon is The Absolute Best to work with from my first inquiry throughout our stay! Any questions were answered with lightening speed and she couldn't have been more accommodating. The house is very comfortable and well set up. The parking on the street was very convenient. Even off season there are quite a few restaurants open in town, shops and a gallery...and many more a short drive away into Nags Head, etc.

Our Shetland Sheepdog came along with us and enjoyed himself especially on the beaches that are only about a 6 minute drive away. There's nothing like the beach with a dog in the winter! In addition there are a number of walking/bike paths around town. And if you enjoy nature - Manteo is a great spot because it is within reach of so many wildlife refuges. We spent quite a bit of time in the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge birding...and we saw 5 otters at play from about 5 feet away! The birds and ducks were fantastic both on the ocean beaches as well as in the marshes and sounds in the area. Bring your binoculars!

We can't wait to come back, sit on the front porch in warmer weather and enjoy all this great little town has to offer from farmers market to First Fridays!

Absolutely darling and walking distance to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely charming! It's not the typical rental or hotel. It has so much character with sturdy antiques, classy light fixtures, everything! If they rented by the year, I'd definitely do that! It has a nice creative layout and whoever did the decorating is an absolute genius. It's cozy, welcoming, inviting, and just all around the perfect place to stay. Nothing in it is the cheap, generic version, and it's still so affordable! The towels are thick, the blankets smell amazing, and it's so clean. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in a central, clean, and cute, location while they visit Manteo!

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about Midgett House--from the moment we walked in and saw how beautifully decorated this cottage is from top to bottom. The beds were so comfortable, I did not want to get up in the morning. We fell in love with the town of Manteo and the close proximity of Midgett House cant be beat. I highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a lovely comfortable vacation rental in a peaceful quaint town, and I will be back

Delightful headquarters for Outer Banks Vacation! Highly recommend this one!

  • 5 of 5

We are veteran VRBO'ers, and could not have been happier with the choice of the Midgett House as HQ for our first OBX experience. The house is much larger than it looks, with very comfortable cottage furnishings and decor. We felt 'at home' immediately, as did our 4 legged traveling companion (8 y/o pointer). The porch was a favorite spot for all of us, but we equally enjoyed afternoons in the lovely garden. We also spread out all of our maps, touristy brochures, laptop, etc. on the spacious dining room table and desk, and never felt cramped. The location was absolutely ideal---a quick walk 'downtown,' and although we had some concern before arriving about being 'on a main street,' I can testify that Manteo in full swing is not even close to my home during school traffic. Just NO street noise or annoyance! We enjoyed many bike rides exploring the lovely community. Spent time at the Elizabethan Gardens, Aquarium, and ice cream shops. Midgett/Manteo suited us far better as a home base than any of the OBX rentals - they are not remotely inviting compared to the Midgett House and Manteo charm. We are encouraging all of our friends to sample the house, the cottage, or the loft. Also, consider taking all three for a family reunion, girls weekend, or other gathering. The three are 'one' delightful offering. Thank you, Sharon, from all of us for the great stay.

Beautiful Vacation Home in Manteo, NC

  • 5 of 5

This charming cottage was perfect for my husband, me, sister-in-law and our small dog for a few days visiting the Outer Banks. The listing was accurate, and the photos don't do it justice; it is beautifully decorated. The property was clean and well maintained, and the central air conditioning was a blessing in the very hot weather. The owner was very helpful before our stay. I would definitely recommend the Midgett House or the smaller neighboring cottage, which has its own parking lot. There is on-street parking for the Midgett House. Our favorite attraction in Manteo was the outdoor play, "The Lost Colony." Manteo is a short drive to the other towns in the Outer Banks and the ocean. I would love to visit here again. Three days is not long enough.

Favorite Vacation Spot in NC!

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed in the Neva Midgett house once before this visit. Previously we stayed in Clemons Cottage. This house feels comfortable and safe. The distance to the waterfront in seconds. It is also very close to the rest of OBX without being crowded and noisy. This last visit was just my daughters and me, since Dad is serving in Afghanistan. We felt secure here by ourselves because of the great experiences we have had before. We cannot recommend this place enough! As we drove away today I felt like we were leaving an old friend.
