Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, sleeps 4

Dream of spending a few days or few weeks in the quaint Island town of Manteo on Historic Roanoke Island

There’s no other area of the Outer Banks that is like Roanoke Island. Come and enjoy the history and mystery of the Island and yet be so close to the world class beaches of the Outer Banks. Enjoy the many amenities of a walkable village that is home to many wonderful restaurants, museums, art galleries, artist studios, shops, and museums. The restored and lovely waterfront and downtown area is an attraction in itself, with local boats sitting in Shallowbag Bay and the surrounding boardwalk with docks. Catch a sail on one of the restored boats, and enjoy the waterfront without a car--blend in with a bike!

Then: why not stay in The Island Loft ?

The Loft is situated on the second floor of the Lovely Neva Midgett House, listed on the Historic Houses of Manteo Registry. Surrounded by picket fences, the Loft sports its own very private arbor entry with a wonderful tree top deck overlooking Manteo--great moon shots at night--really (Moon over Manteo)!

Enjoy two beautiful bedrooms, full kitchen, spa shower, furnished private deck, and comfy living room with all the amenities of a high end loft apartment.

You are within walking distance to the ever popular Manteo Waterfront where you will find all types of activities for all types of families. Enjoy the fun restaurants, museums, great shops, and art galleries with artists in residence.

Come and to the Loft and enjoy all the Roanoke Island has to offer.

From your deck you are just a few walkable blocks from the waterfront so you can take advantage of all it has to offer-including quaint shops, restaurants, museums, bookstores, coffee shops, micro brewery, even a new rum distillery.

Our stay at the loft was very relaxing. We enjoyed the island and the people made us feel very welcome. We had everything we needed and couldn't have felt more at home. We would recommend the loft and would love to go back!

What a lovely home-away-from-home, but without the daily reminders of chores and obligations.

This lovely loft cottage is located a short stroll from the waterfront shops, restaurants and park and a short drive (or intrepid bike ride) to beach.

If it rains, you will not mind hanging out in this place. It is sweetly and tastefully appointed and immaculate!

And if you do have perfect weather, you will be sure to spend time on the private deck on days you don't feel like running around.

I would definitely come back to this place.

So lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the loft. It was so peaceful and quiet. The neighborhood is beautiful and close to the water. The loft is a renovated space, so the only issue we had was that my husband who is 6'2" was too tall for the shower! But he loved it like I did!

Perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

My son and I needed acomadations for the Internatiional Laser Sailboat competition which was hosted in Manteo, NC Sailing. The Loft was in he perfect location and very comfortable. Having a kitchen, washer and dryer and a little extra space made us the envy of many of our friends that lodged at the Elezabethan down the street.

The owner was exceptional too!

Heaven over Manteo

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for such a cozy loft. We parked our car and walked into town and the waterfront. We slept in, and sat out on the porch and relaxed. The beds were so comfortable and the loft was so clean. It had everything you would need. My daughter and I and our two pups stayed for 3 days before our week at Duck. This was the first time doing this and hope we can do it again. I could have stayed for a month. Thank you again.It is just what I needed. Thank you again

The Island Loft is located on Historic Roanoke Island just a bridge away from Nags Head centrally located on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The cottage is just 4 minutes to the ocean beaches, and tucked away on a beautiful peaceful island for a lovely Outer Banks experience. The Island Loft is in the heart of the historic district of Manteo, walkable to the quaint waterfront. I hope you will come
