About this property

Historic Cape Cod in Old Town Manteo! 1 Block From Harbor

Built as the Queen Elizabeth Guest House in 1940, this quaint, spacious, and historic house has a natural charm. It offers an alternative to the more contemporary houses that are available in the nearby beach locations. The house is equipped with beautiful hard-wood floors, and wonderful light, comfortable sofas, family heirloom furniture, 100% cotton sheets, down comforters, plenty of dining room chairs, well-stocked pantry, kitchen dining nook, and shady side. One of the downstairs bedrooms has a king and the other has a queen size bed. Small upstairs bedroom now has a queen-sized bed. The bunk room has a bunk bed (queen on bottom, single on top), plus a full-sized bed. Kitchenette upstairs. The yard is completely enclosed by a white picket fence, with plenty of space for children and pets to run. A newly built, completely enclosed outdoor shower is great for washing off after the beach. There is a large magnolia tree with a swing in the front yard and lovely landscaping around the house. Another highlight of our home is that it can easily accommodate 2 families. The main kitchen is downstairs. The upstairs kitchen is simple but includes a small fridge, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker. The village of Manteo is delightful, with plenty of activities in town, as well as additional activities throughout the northern Outer Banks. Our house is in a quiet neighborhood within a pleasant, five-minute walk of coffee shops, restaurants, bookstore, movie theater, shopping, Roanoke Island Festival Park, NC Maritime Center, eco-kayaking, and the waterfront docks with a replica of a 16th century English ship. Located in the center of historic Roanoke Island on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, this Nantucket-style village is connected to the NC Aquarium, The Island Farm, the Elizabethan Gardens and Fort Raleigh National Park by a delightful and meandering bike and walking path. The house is a 10-minute drive to the Nags Head beaches, a 20-minute drive to the Wright Brothers' First Flight Site, and convenient to journeys to the famous Corolla, Bodie Island, Hatteras and Ocracoke Island lighthouses. Historic Downtown Manteo has become a popular location for weddings and family events. About your Hosts: Anne, Robert and family: Robert Long and Anne Mandeville-Long live in Chapel Hill, NC where Robert is a performing arts building design consultant and Anne operates her Moss Garden Nursery School. Robert spent his first twenty-five summers living in Manteo with his parents, brother and sister, all of whom have been involved with the annual production of The Lost Colony Outdoor Drama. Robert portrayed the infant Virginia Dare, the first English child born in the New World, on her commemorative birthday when he was five months old. In all, Robert spent seventeen summers working with the Lost Colony production. Robert and Anne blended their young families more than a dozen years ago and have many wonderful memories of visits to Manteo with their combined seven children. The family's two dogs, Maya and Luci, love their visits to Manteo. Robert and Anne bought the 201 Uppowoc house in 2008 as soon as it came on the market. In addition to the lovely ambiance and the ideal location of the house, the property is adjacent to the back yard of his brother William's vacation home on Sir Walter Street. Having been a regular visitor to Manteo and Roanoke Island for his entire life, Robert knew that having a vacation rental in this picturesque town would be the fulfillment of a dream. Anne, who grew up on the Connecticut coast, has also grown to love Manteo and the Outer Banks. For more than seventy years, the house at 201 Uppowoc has evoked a sense of calm and simple elegance for its residents and visitors. Located within the Old Town Historic District of Manteo, the house provides an excellent starting point for visits on foot or by bicycle to a variety of wonderful offerings including coffee shops, stores, galleries and restaurants, in addition to the longest-running family-owned movie theatre in North Carolina.

5/5 Excellent

Great location and perfect getaway

Second time I have stayed at this property and I will Come back again. Reservation and check-in is easy. The house accommodates groups of adults perfectly. We were here for OBX Triathlon and the location was great for the early morning and also easy walk to down town. Highly recommend to a group of friends or family get away

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic home, fantastic location!

We had a wonderful time at this home, with our 4 young. children and our dog. Lots of space, fenced in yard, even a tree swing! Everything you could need, and being able to rent their bikes and kayaks were a wonderful option. Located on a quiet side street, you can walk to the Manteo Maritime museum, lighthouse, and waterfront in about 5 minutes. Ocean beaches are 10-15 minutes away. We loved our stay and highly recommend it this home!

5/5 Excellent

great place and time

5/5 Excellent

Quaint, older cottage with lots of character and lots of room.

This cottage was the perfect place for my family to gather in preparation for my granddaughter’s wedding at the Elizabethan Gardens. The rooms were large enough to allow the bridal party to have plenty of room for assistance with makeup, hair, and dressing. The kitchen was well-stocked with pantry basics and had all the cooking utensils needed for cooking whatever meal we chose to bring with us. The living room was a warm and inviting place for us to gather and watch tv or just “visit” with each other. The second floor kitchenette was a great place to have a morning cup of tea while still relaxing in your pajamas. We did not get to spend much time in the yard since it rained much of the time we were there ( luckily not during the wedding ceremony itself!). However, we could not have asked for a more convenient location with comfortable surroundings. It was a pleasure staying there and we thank the owners for providing the perfect base for our family celebration! The Kolipano/Matthews Family
