From the Little Lifeboat House to the Manteo waterfront [VIDEO]

Traditional Manteo Cottage
The Little Lifeboat House is our premier rental cottage located in the heart of Manteo on Historic Roanoke Island. Modeled after a traditional North Carolina Lifesaving Station from the late 19th century, the Little Lifeboat House is a cozy one-bedroom retreat that is perfect for honeymoons or intimate weekend getaways. To spend a day by the ocean, head to the nearest beach access which is just 10 minutes away.

Inside, you’ll love the open-style floorplan of the ground-level which makes the cottage feel open and spacious. A large built-in entertainment center acts as a focal wall with coastal décor, a TV (w/ Dolby Surround Sound Home Theater System w/ DVD & CD Player) and cozy fireplace. Lounge around on the sofa that pulls out to a bed for extra sleeping space. The fully-functional eat-in kitchen boasts granite countertops and provides everything you need to whip up a masterpiece. The kitchen island offers bar seating for three. There is also a convenient full-sized bathroom and laundry closet on this level. For a revitalizing breath of fresh air, take your coffee out to the brick patio every morning and take a few moments to unwind before starting your day.

Upstairs, you’ll feel right at home in the comfortable Queen Bedroom with vaulted ceilings, plenty of natural light and a TV for binge-watching your favorite show before bed. Across the hall is a large bathroom complete with a separate toilet, single vanity and Whirlpool Jacuzzi Tub for ultimate relaxation.

Step Back Into History
Located on historic Roanoke Island, Little Lifeboat House is in the perfect location for learning more about the history of the Outer Banks. Pay a visit to the beautiful Elizabethan Gardens or stop by Fort Raleigh National Historic Site to discover how life on the island was for early settlers. The Lost Colony is an award-winning live theater performance about the famous lost colonists of Roanoke Island and is a great outing for the whole family. Kids will also love a visit the NC Aquarium where they can see sea turtles, otters, sharks, fish, and many other marine animals. Downtown Manteo is within walking distance and offers great shopping and tasty restaurants all with a spectacular view of the water. You can even visit the Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse (one of the 5 Lighthouses of the Outer Banks). When you want to venture into the main area of the Outer Banks, you are just a short drive away from South Nags Head and can easily take a day trip North toward Corolla or South toward Ocracoke. With great amenities and an ideal location, Little Lifeboat House is where a true Outer Banks adventure awaits!
