Wanchese Inn B&B
Ranked #1 of 2 Wanchese B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 September 2016

We didn't plan to visit the island, but ended up staying while our car was repaired. The Inn is very clean. Old on the outside, totally modern inside. Lyn is welcoming and VERY accommodating! She makes an extensive breakfast each day. Simple food prepared well. Relaxing place to hang out for a few days. Enjoyed the A/C indoors and the rocking chairs outdoors. I would go out of my way to go back next time I'm in NC!

Our room was neat, clean, and comfortable, and for breakfast we had grits, scrambled eggs and bacon one day and oatmeal, waffles, and sausage the next day. Overall, I would describe our experience as a very good and basic stay.

For example in our room we had an old tube TV and the toiletries (soap and shampoo) reminded me of a motel in the 1960's. One of the reasons we like to stay in B&B's is for more of a gourmet experience and something a bit more special..

Lynn, our host, was very helpful and a good cook, but I always hope for something a bit more special in our breakfasts. The location in Wanchese is 2-3 miles away from any restaurants, shops or the beach.

The internet worked just fine

Room Tip: The bedroom in the front of the house was the best appointed.

Lynn and Bill have restored this beautiful old home into the warm and charming Wanchese B&B. It's located in a quiet neighborhood off the main highway but centrally located to all the main attractions of the Outer Banks, whether going north or south. Our room was on the first floor with private bathroom and cable tv. It was very clean and the bed was comfortable. In the morning Lynn prepared all the guests a 3-course breakfast with a different variety each day. We found Lynn's knowledge of the local area quite helpful in planning each day's adventure. In the afternoon we enjoyed relaxing in the spacious sun room. We'd recommend the Wanchese B&B to anyone visiting the Outer Banks.

Room Tip: Our room was on the first floor.

Lynn and Bill do a fantastic job at making you feel right at home. Great stories and conversation. Clean room, great breakfast every day, quiet neighborhood. Extremely comfortable bed. Plenty of living area to relax. Located about 4 miles from downtown Manteo in Wanchese, it is very convenient and just a short drive to beaches, entertainment, and historical sights. Very quiet for those who want to escape the mobs of summer vacationers. A lot of repeat customers stayed during the same time we did, which speaks volumes of the satisfaction of other clients as well. Stayed in room #4 with private bathroom, cable tv, and free wifi. Room #4 is the only downstairs room. All other bedrooms are upstairs. Will definitely be our first choice at place to stay again next time in the area.

The Wanchese Inn B&B is a wonderful place to stay. It is a lovely old home carefully restored by the loving hands of the owners Lynn and Bill. It has charm from the past and modern conveniences to make your stay on the Outer Banks very relaxing.
We made a short trip to the coast to see family we had not seen for twenty years. The trip was so enjoyable in part because Lynn made sure we had everything we needed before we could ask. We were even able to bring family to the Inn and just sit in this lovely home and talk, laugh and reconnect.
Wanchese is out of the hustle and bustle of the beaches but very close to all the attractions you would want to see. You can run and sight see all day and then come back to the Wanchese Inn were you find a quite, clean, and safe room waiting for you.
It will not be another twenty years before we go back to the Outer Banks. Now we have a wonderful place to stay!

Room Tip: The front room on the second floor is very spacious and has a hot tub.
