Outer Banks Waterfront Lodging | Historic Manteo, NC

The Burrus House Inn at Manteo — known now as simply the Inn at Manteo — was the vision of Jack Burrus, a lifelong resident of Manteo, NC, who was passionate not just about his hometown, but also this unique waterfront property. Jack dreamed of converting his family cottage to an inn so that others could one day share in his enjoyment of waterfront life on Shallowbag Bay. Embarking on this dream, Jack sold a portion of the original property to a developer and relocated the cottage structure an acre north to its current location. What stands today is the product of that dream, with Jack’s daughter at the helm. We’ve embarked upon a new chapter, and look forward to sharing it with you.

The Inn at Manteo is an all-suite property, boasting waterfront views of Shallowbag Bay from each of our twelve unique spaces. Our guests will enjoy a well-appointed sitting room, kitchenette, luxurious bathroom, comfortable king or queen bedding and a private deck with cozy hammocks and seating. For larger groups or families, many of our suites are spacious enough to accommodate the addition of one of our roll-away guest beds. Alternatively, please consider our two-story Crow’s Nest suite with king bed, lofted twin beds, and two private balconies. 

Your stay at the Inn includes a welcome basket, continental breakfast and afternoon tea or cocktail under the vaulted ceiling of our treasured "Peacock Room." Our friendly staff is happy to help with any concierge needs - dinner reservations or suggestions for things to do in Manteo and the Outer Banks.

Launching in Summer 2019, guests of the Inn will enjoy special access to watersport activities, kayak and paddleboard rentals during the peak-season, as well as our brand new pool and soundfront hot tub — an amenity like no other on Roanoke Island. Projected to be completed in August, the pool is designed for relaxing both in and out of the water. It will have a 3-5’ overall depth, in-pool bench along one side, and spacious surrounding lounge area furnished with tables, umbrellas and lounge furniture. Additionally, we offer towel service and an on-site bar to round out your poolside experience. For summertime sunsets or chilly off-season evenings, take a soak in our hot tub, nestled on the soundside of the Inn with spectacular waterviews.

The Inn at Manteo is centrally located for enjoying all the Outer Banks has to offer. Visit the pristine ocean beaches of Nags Head, NC, less than five miles from the Inn or explore the shops and restaurants along the historic Manteo waterfront. Less than a one-mile journey, you can coast there on one of our complimentary bikes.
