Fodor's Expert Review Tranquil House Inn

405 Queen Elizabeth Ave., Manteo, North Carolina, 27954, USA

This charming 19th-century-style waterfront inn would look perfectly in place on Martha's Vineyard and is just steps from shops, restaurants, and Roanoke Island Festival Park. Individually decorated rooms sport clean, classic lines and muted colors, though some furniture could use updating. The popular on-site restaurant, 1587, is known for inventive entrées.
