A lovely place to stay in Manteo

4.2 on August 02, 2018

We just got back from an overnight at the White Doe Inn and enjoyed our stay very much. They provide all the comforts and accessories you would find in a high class hotel while also being very friendly and inviting. There are coffees of all kinds available 24 hours, bottled water whenever you like, and wine and other drinks on the honor system. We sat outside for breakfast, which was very ample and yummy. The setting was charming and private as well. I highly recommend this inn.


Much Needed Relaxation

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the White Doe Inn! Bob and Bebe are gracious hosts and made us feel right at home. I'm looking forward to another trip to the White Doe soon!


Anniversary at the White Doe Inn!

4.6 on July 06, 2012

Surprised my wife with a weekend getaway to OBX for our 26th anniversary. The White Doe Inn was everything they advertised, beautiful rooms, great service, and superb hospitality! Bebe and Bob took the time to visit with all their guests and certainly added that "personal" touch to our stay. We will be going back.


Absolute elegance and excellence

5 on June 16, 2012

This is by far the most wonderful experience at a B & B that I've ever had. The entire house is an historic landmark with beautiful gardens. It is amazingly updated with such a touch of flare. Bebe and Bob are delightful people. The cook, from Brazil, created beautiful and tasty breakfasts. Everything--the room, the bed, the ambiance, the food, the conversation---was exceptional. I'd venture to say that this rivals the best of the best!


Great time away for anniversary

4.8 on February 28, 2012

Had a great time getting away for our anniversary and Valentine's Day. This is a charming Victorian B&B filled with period antiques and pictures. It is a couple of blocks from downtown Manteo and its dining and shopping. The room was a great retreat and the service from the owners and staff was incredible! Highly recommend the garret room where we stayed. It is on the top floor and very private. The breakfasts were excellent and expertly prepared and we enjoyed getting to know the other guests at the table. It even had a gourmet expresso/coffee machine that we could enjoy any time day or night. This was a great place for us to get away and we look forward to returning soon!


THE BEST!

5 on November 29, 2011

This place was gorgeous! We loved every relaxing moment of the stay. We actually were able to look into every room in the inn and have made a list of at least three other rooms we plan to come back to spend a night or two in! The breakfast was great! The in-room couples massage was spectacular! This trip couldn't have been any better! Thank you so so much!!!!!

Wonderful place but had mainly the same breakfast each day which was some kind of quiche. We went in August of 2010 and the weather was extremely hot. Breakfast was served outside with all sorts of mosquitos etc. and flowers falling into your food. Nice people and a beautiful place but was not satisfied with the breakfast being served in extreme heat.


Immaculately kept B&B - don't hesitate to book

4.6 on May 18, 2011

The rooms were decorated beautifully. The gardens were well manicured and numerous fountains were lovely. We visited in early May and weather was great so we ate outside on veranda every morning. The breakfast table was decorated elegantly with beautiful table decor. The Inn was immaculately kept and the service was exceptional. I will be visiting again. The White Doe Inn is the epitome of a high end bed and breakfast.


First Time

Being from Kingsburg, California, we had never experienced the Outer Banks hospitality. Bebe and Bob Woody run a first-class place. We had a wonderful two-day stay.
