There is a large magnolia tree with a swing in the front yard and lovely landscaping around the house.

Welcome to Uppowoc House in Manteo.: 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.

About your Hosts: Anne, Robert and family: Robert Long and Anne Mandeville-Long live in Chapel Hill, NC where Robert is a performing arts building design consultant and Anne operates her Moss Garden Nursery School. Robert spent his first twenty-five summers living in Manteo with his parents, brother and sister, all of whom have been involved with the annual production of The Lost Colony Outdoor Drama. Robert portrayed the infant Virginia Dare, the first English child born in the New World, on her commemorative birthday when he was five months old. In all, Robert spent seventeen summers working with the Lost Colony production.

Robert and Anne blended their young families more than a dozen years ago and have many wonderful memories of visits to Manteo with their combined seven children. The family's two dogs, Maya and Luci, love their visits to Manteo.

Having been a regular visitor to Manteo and Roanoke Island for his entire life, Robert knew that having a vacation rental in this picturesque town would be the fulfillment of a dream. Anne, who grew up on the Connecticut coast, has also grown to love Manteo and the Outer Banks.

For more than seventy years, the house at 201 Uppowoc has evoked a sense of calm and simple elegance for its residents and visitors.

Why Anne Mandeville-Long chose Manteo

Robert and Anne bought the 201 Uppowoc house in 2008 as soon as it came on the market. In addition to the lovely ambiance and the ideal location of the house, the property is adjacent to the back yard of his brother William's vacation home on Sir Walter Street. Having been a regular visitor to Manteo and Roanoke Island for his entire life, Robert knew that having a vacation rental in this picturesque town was the fulfillment of a dream. Anne, who grew up on the Connecticut coast, has also grown to love Manteo and the Outer Banks.

What makes this house unique

Our house is located at the intersection of Uppowoc and Agona streets in Old Town Manteo. We love the proximity of the house to all the amenities available within easy walking distance. We love evening strolls on the waterfront boardwalks with our dogs, and morning visits to the Coffee Shop. Also within walking distance are the long-time family-owned Pioneer movie theatre and all the offerings available at Roanoke Island Festival Park.

The house is spacious yet cozy, with plenty of light, wood floors and a special breakfast nook. Uppowoc House is unique in itself as it offers an alternative to the typical rental properties available throughout the Outer Banks. Visitors have described the upstairs as a 'bonus' with its bunk room and kitchenette. And in the warmer months, the outdoor shower is a treat after a visit to the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We, a familiy of four people, 2 adults and 2 girls, spent a perfect holiday at this wonderful house. We found a very clean place, perfectly equiped with all utensils a traveller needs to feel at home, the description of the house including photos was perfect, we received a wonderful manual to use about the house and the surroundings.

We spent many hours relaxing at the house, went to the Saturday Farmer's Market, paddleboard tours, Kayaking with the recommended company to Alligator Nature Reserve, visited the big dunes and the Wright-Museum at Kitty Hawk, went swimming on the beaches nearby finding great conditions, watched sunsets near the old bridge, had great times at North Carolina Aquarium and Island Farm Museum.

It would have been easy to find more actvities for another 2 weeks!

We really would like to come back, there would be no other choice than this vacation home!

Cozy, Comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at the rental property several times and really enjoy it. It's a nice comfortable house close to downtown Manteo. It has a big fenced yard which our dogs really enjoy. The owners are wonderful to deal with and very accommodating. We will definitely recommend this rental property.

PERFECT CAPE COD CHRISTMAS IN MANTEO

  • 5 of 5

For the past 32years our family has spent Christmas at our home in Burlington, NC. But since we are in the process of relocationg to this area, I thought, what better way to get the full experieince of this charming little town of Manteo, than spending the Christmas holidays there! The only thing better than being surrounded by a beautiful neighborhood, within walking distance to the waterfront, unique shops, wanchese pottery, & the perfect little coffee shop, was to be able to spend the week in this charming cape cod home. From the moment I walked in the door, i knew I had made the right decision to pick this home (instead of the cookie cutter condos ) . 201 Uppawoc has a warmth & cozy feel in every single room. The beautiful hardwood floors, antique furniture, beautiful original paintings, cozy beds, & a breakfast nook that you can sit at for hours sipping coffee, playing board games, etc. was just perfect!! Our family LOVED it all!!! If the charm, quaintness of the inside was not enough, the yard , with a tree swing. bench, & a beautiful sideporch, was completely fenced in (so our dog loved that !!!). If you are fortunate to be there in warmer months, the outdoor shower looks pretty amazing! If we werent relocating to that area, I wold rent it every year.!!! If you're not convinced how much we loved it by now, The owners were amazing and went waaaay beyond our expectations by decorating the inside with a Christmas tree ,decorations & lights ( both inside & outside). It was the PERFECT home away from home<3.

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, well maintained house. Spacious, well stocked and cozy. Walking distance to downtown Manteo in a quiet neighborhood. Felt like a home away from home, rather than a "vacation rental".

Spacious yet cozy, great location.

  • 5 of 5

I'd highly recommend this home to any family or group looking to experience historic Manteo. The house is very well maintained and feels like home. The upstairs apartment is a bonus! Great proximity to downtown. Gather around the picnic table outside and soak in the experience!

Loved it!

  • of 5

Came for the marathon and fell in love with the town and the house. Cozy, warm, and inviting. Such a charming house walking distance to old town Manteo. Definitely better than any other place or area we have stayed in the outer banks.
