“Absolutely Lovely!!”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

Luxury, comfort and every attention to detail welcomed us at the White Doe Inn! The Inn is a gorgeous historic home. The suites are uniquely decorated and lovely! Private balconies, fluffy towels, coffee bar, tea service, four-course breakfast, afternoon baked goods, DVD library... every detail there to provide a comforting stay!

We absolutely LOVED our stay! The staff treated us to the ultimate romantic getaway!
We can't wait to return!!!!!

This was our second visit to the inn, and we had as nice a visit as our first time. There have been some updates to the property, to include a new suite, the Tower suite. While we didn't book that suite, we were able to look at it and it's very nice.

We booked the Garret suite, which is very nice. It has a super comfortable bed, but the best feature is the fireplace that is "double sided" in that it's in the sitting area and the bathroom, making it enjoyable from the two person spa tub.

We liked the 24 hour availability of coffee/tea/hot chocolate, along with snacks and beverages. The breakfast is always very good, and they serve breakfast "dessert" as well.

The owners are very friendly and interesting to sit down and chat with, and are always willing to share their vast knowledge of the area.

You can't go wrong with a visit to the White Doe Inn!

Room Tip: Tower Suite is very nice, as well as the Garret Suite!

We were looking for a place to celebrate our anniversary and came upon this B&B. We were very pleased at the beauty of the home and the hospitality of the owners and staff. The room in the garret that we had was perfect for our time there. It was a great mixture of privacy and friendly interaction with the staff. It is in a great location in Manteo with easy access to both Roanoke Island and the Outer Banks. The inn is a beautiful old Victorian house with lots of antiques and nooks and crannies that are fun to explore. It is in walking distance from downtown Manteo with its shops and restaurants as well. We had a marvelous time and will look forward to returning soon.

Room Tip: The garret rooms are probably the best for a romantic getaway.

We found the White Doe Inn to be comfortable and friendly. We aren't big B&B fans, but appreciated the balance between friendliness and private space.

We were invited to explore the inn's other (empty) rooms when we checked in, and we noticed a lot of variation between them, so explore carefully on the inn's website. Our room had a whirlpool tub with hand-held shower and a fireplace, which was fine for us. Bathrooms range from standard hotel fare to opulent, and some suites have sitting areas and outdoor spaces.

The book ad DVD library was a nice touch, as were the refreshments available through the day. Breakfasts were very good: four courses of thoughtfully-prepared food (other reviews mention pre-packaged, and I didn't detect anything of this sort). I would have appreciated a description of what we were going to have as the meal started and perhaps a choice or two.

The house is beautiful, and that balanced out the problems with the space -- it was very hard to control the temperature in our room (on the third floor -- it was way too hot the first night with no heat on, the fan running, and 45 degree temperatures outside).

The location was wonderful for walking to downtown Manteo, and we found the drive to Cape Hatteras to make for a great afternoon (about an hour each way). We visited off-season (mid-December) and a couple of months after Hurricane Irene, so several restaurants in Manteo were closed, but we found lots of great places to eat and things to do.

Room Tip: Spend time on the inn's website and make this decision carefully -- there's a lot of variati...

My sister and I went here for a Thanksgiving getaway trip and I'm so glad we did. We purchased a livingsocial deal for a 2 night stay with a spa package and other goodies.

The place is beautiful in all aspects. For being a victorian stylel b&b everything was comfortable, rather then stiff. We stayed in the Virginia Dare which had a large beautiful bathroom, and private little balcony with a small table which was great to sit at and drink some wine. The room had everything you needed, a nice flat screen tv, whirpool tub, a fireplace heater in the bathroom and a fireplace in the room. Also had a armoire that had extra bedding in it if you got cold! The house was great, had a coffee maker (push a buttona nd it comes out, no waiting)on hand at all times, a microwave and at 3 pm they put out tons of goodies to snack on.

That was great because we went during the off season when lots of places close at 5 for dinner. One night we went to a restuarant in nags head and had a horrible experiance and came back hungry....the snacks and drinks saved us!

They offer so much, a gift shop with all the goodies they give you in the room, picnic baskets you can purchase for lunch or a romantic dinner. Also a nice library room full of books, dvds, and local information and menus so you can stay in and relax or plan your outtings.

The spa package was amazing....massages for both of us with head treatments and champagne and chocolate covered strawberries and also a gift with spa quality body lotion.

The waterfront is a a walk away, or take the free bikes they offer at the B&B and go explore.

They though of everything.

The owners were so welcoming, coming in for breakfast and talking to everyone. Found out the husband (his name slips my mind) is from where I live and he told me about all the stuff he used to do when he lived there.

I'm already saving for a return trip with my boyfriend.

Room Tip: I wouldn't suggest going during the "off season" because the majority of places are cl...
