What makes this cottage unique

For generations vacationers have sought the unique tranquility of Roanoke Island as their overnight resting place while enjoying all of the playgrounds of the Outer Banks by day. Located in the heart of Roanoke Island, it's convenient to all attractions. Travel north and you're off to the Lost Colony or the Elizabethan Gardens. Venture south and you're beach bound. Winding directly across the street is a 7.5 mile bike trail for walking, skating, or biking from one tip of the island to the other. The Wright Get-Away is also located just a short distance away from the Historic Downtown Manteo Waterfront, so many shops and restaurants are a convenient walk away. Other attractions on Roanoke Island include: Roanoke Island Festival Park, North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island, Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, Jockey's Ridge State Park, and much more!

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

Looking at the photo of the outside, it looks like it would be tiny inside. It's not, especially the huge spa-tub!! This cottage was perfect for us to celebrate 25 years of marriage. Very clean, open and comfortable. 10/10 would stay there again!

This is the cutest little cottage ever--my husband said he wished he could pick it up and move it onto our own property. We stayed for three nights, coming especially to attend a bluegrass festival, and thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations. Definitely would stay here again!!

Had a wonderful time at this cottage. The listing was as described. The cottage is cozy, perfect for two. The setting is very private in a residential neighborhood - very quiet, and close to the bike path. We loved the town. Make sure to stop at Old Town Creamery for ice cream. We also went to Stripers Bar and Grill multiple times for the food and local atmosphere.

Post Christmas vacay in Manteo

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time spent at the Wright Get Away. My husband had never been to the Outer Banks, and Manteo provided the perfect jumping point to visit the Bodie Lighthouse as well as Duck, Carrolla, and Currituck. We had a great time venturing out to several restaurants and even investing in a Nags Head Hammock!!! I would definitely recommend staying at this I myself plan to return in the near future :) Oh, and we were able to take our dog with us!! Bonus points!!!

Perfect & Charming

  • 5 of 5

We needed something for two people for two nights close to downtown Manteo- couldn't have asked for a more perfect getaway cottage! An easy and picturesque five minute walk to downtown, quiet street and simply the most adorable and well-thought out accommodations! From the top notch quality of materials to the excellent layout the Wright Getaway is the right getaway for anyone! Several things we absolutely loved- the bathroom with its tin ceiling, large whirlpool tub and rainfall shower. Towels were fluffy, everything about this room screamed Four Star hotel. The gas fireplace was perfect for chilly spring nights, bed was very comfy, I could go on and on. Simply put your every need and desire is already predicted in this quaint, charming and totally luxurious little house. We took pictures and showed it off to all of our friends! Loved our stay and will be back again and again. PS- thought the pricepoint was excellent as well!
