Spring Dreams

By Molly Harrison | Monday, March 18, 2019

Spring is the perfect time for a visit to Cameron House Inn, a lovingly restored Arts and Crafts bungalow in Manteo on Roanoke Island.

Nestled in the heart of downtown Manteo, Cameron House Inn is an ideal home base for a springtime Outer Banks getaway. You could easily spend all of your vacation time on Roanoke Island, walking to the shops, restaurants and parks of downtown Manteo or biking to some of the island’s many attractions. With its blooming trees and flowers, Roanoke Island is by far the Outer Banks’ most eye-catching community in spring. If you want to venture a little farther afield, the Outer Banks beach communities are just a 10-minute drive across the sound. This time of year, you’ll have the Outer Banks almost to yourself, as the visitors are just starting to return with the warm weather and the businesses are welcoming everyone with open arms.

Whatever you decide to do by day, at the end of it you’ll have the sweet reward of returning to this lovely inn. Rocking chairs by an outdoor fireplace will be waiting for you, as well as homemade cookies, snacks and a surprise dessert in the kitchen. You’ll sleep soundly on the decadently comfortable beds in one of the inn’s six rooms, and in the morning, you’ll wake to a gourmet breakfast and freshly baked delights, ready for another day of springtime fun.
