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.

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.

Our stay at the Neva Midgett House was marvelous! From the start, the owner (Sharon) was personable, professional, & so pleasant! We walked to Manteo's Waterfront (great shops, restaurants, Elizabeth II Ship, Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse, etc.) from The House. An easy drive took us to the Elizabethan Gardens (lovely) ,the NC Aquarium (excellent), along Dare County country side (beautiful), and across the bridge to Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head, the Bodie Island Lighthouse, shops, and restaurants right on the Atlantic Ocean!
The easy walks and drives to so many places throughout the area made our stay at the Neva Midgett House marvelous! The house was quite roomy and was decorated with many antiques but it had all the conveniences of modern day life! The towels & linens were plush and there were many supplies (TP, soaps, laundry supplies, etc.) which made our visit very pleasant. We ate our breakfasts on the front porch sitting on rocking chairs with end tables while watching the lovely light porch curtains waving in the wind.
The Clemon's Cottage and The Island Loft were also occupied but we never saw or heard the other renters during our entire stay! We do plan on returning to "Cottages on Roanoke Island." Truly, the house, location, caring owner, and beautiful areas between the Sounds and Ocean resulted in a delightful time for everyone!
We had a wonderful stay at Midgett House with our son and daughter in law. Everything we needed was thoughtfully in the house. The kitchen was well equipped.
We brought a few games to play I was surprised to see there were a few board games already there. We had breakfast in the morning and ate out lunch and dinner except for one night. Matt made his Grandma's special chicken casserole the atmosphere that night was so nice to be surrounded in a home we recalled the good times setting around Grandma's dinner table.
Just what we needed before we started our summer!!!
We spent three nights at the Neva Midget cottage for our anniversary. We couldn't have asked for a more pleasant stay. Beautiful furnishings and all of the conveniences of home. We liked the fact we were able to bring the fur babies along:). They enjoyed the walks near the waterfront right down the road. Enjoyed all of the shops and restaurants close by. Safe and quiet area. The owner, Sharon ,answered all of our questions promptly about the property before renting and transactions were easily handled. We were thankful for the opportunity to rent such a wonderful house in a quaint neighborhood.
The house description was accurate. Everything was clean and well maintained. Prompt customer service with a broken bed, owner fixed it immediately. Surroundings were lovely. The only drawback was the very noisy family staying upstairs with a child jumping off the bed late at night (after 10 pm) and the parent encouraging it. Don't know how this could have been prevented by the owner. Its the luck of the draw. We had a small child with us as well, and 2 dogs and we were conscientious about not disturbing the neighbors. The backyard was perfect for the early morning nature calls for the dogs. I would recommend this place highly.
I got to stay in the home where my great-grandmother, Neva Midgett, raised my grandfather and his brothers.
I stayed with my mom and sister for a couple days in this house, and it was absolutely stunning. It had everything we could need, with an incredibly comfortable couch and bed. Of course, the location was very excellent -- an easy walk to oceanfront Manteo's shops and restaurants. We had an amazing stay, and it was worth every penny!
Great place - super-clean with lots of small details to make it feel cozy and romantic. Convenient location, easy parking, walking distance to the charming village of Monteo and waterfront. Lots of water sports available within easy reach. Could not have picked a better place for out 4 days family vacation!
Thank you, Sharon, for keeping it in such a great shape!
