Tranquil House Inn Review

This charming, waterfront, 19th-century-style inn is just steps from shops, restaurants, and Roanoke Island Festival Park. Individually decorated rooms sport clean, classic lines and muted colors; some have comfy sitting areas. Complimentary wine and cheese are served in the evening. The popular restaurant, 1587 ($$$$), is known for chop-house-style cuts and inventive entrées, such as braised pork osso bucco and grilled tuna over Asian udon noodles.
