About this property

Midgett House is Located in the Heart Manteo on Historic Roanoke Island OBX

When coming to Manteo, or The Outer Banks, North Carolina, why not stay in one of the quaint Historic Homes of Manteo? The cozy guest house in the heart of historic The Neva Midgett House makes for the perfect vacation rental accommodations for your visit to Roanoke Island and the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The Neva Midgett house is listed on the Manteo Historic Home registery. The two bedroom guest home is located within walking distance to all that Manteo has to offer including quaint bookstores, wonderful restaurants, art museums, Festval Park for open air concerts, galleries and interesting shops. In fact, the Neva Midgett House was once a very popular antique shop and well known to residents and visitors alike. Midgett House is a two bedroom guesthouse offering the perfect combination of privacy, quiet comfort, and easy access to our beautiful historic town. Rise with the sun and go for a jog along the waterfront or relax on your covered front porch with a hot cup of coffee and enjoy the flowers in the gardens. Hop on your bike and be instantly surrounded by the history and mystery of Roanoke Island. THERE IS NOTHING MIDGET ABOUT Midgett House which includes the entire FIRST floor of this arts and crafts bungalow. The house can accommodate up to 4 guests. You will find two large bedrooms, one with a romantic king size canopy bed and the second with lovely four poster twin beds. The house is filled with period antiques and oriental rugs for your comfort. There is a full bath, a large fully equiped kitchen including a full size refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, stove, oven and washer and dryer. The comfortable living room features modern amenities including hdtv, vcr, and dvd player. The large dining room will accomodate large family meals or just a fun round of board and card games. From the front door, you will find your own covered porch to enjoy comfortable porch furniture and watch the world go by. The most beautiful beaches in the world of the Outer Banks are located within 5 miles of Manteo. Roanoke Island, centerally located, is perfect for a trip to the northern beaches to see the wild horses roaming freely, or south to the island of Okracoke by ferry. Either way you go, wherever you spend your day, you will return to the privacy and comfort of your own charming house. The Manteo Walking Tour includes many of the historic homes including the Neva Midgett House. Remember to visit the many other wonders of Roanoke Island. The Lost Colony is performed nightly during the summer months. The North Carolina Aquarium is a quick drive to the original on Roanoke Island and to the new Aquarium opening in May 2011 on the pier in Nags Head. The Elizabethean Gardens are to die for--beautiful. Hope you can come!

5/5 Excellent


    Nice area to walk in. Manteo is much more slow and relaxing that other parts of the Outer Banks. Lovely shops, restaurant and boardwalk to enjoy. The master bedroom in the house is lovely. It would be good to have a closed in fence/gate for the dogs so that they can be in the yard safely.

    5/5 Excellent

      Home away from home.

      We loved our stay at the Midgett House. It was charming and cozy and had everything we needed. Our toddler granddaughter was enchanted by the fairy garden in the back; it even had a mermaid. We could walk her to the play area at the waterfront and the nice lady at Perk put extra sprinkles on her hot chocolate. We like history and discovered the city cemetery close by. The house has lots of guide books and histories so you can learn a great deal about the area. We are frequent visitors to Manteo, and have found a second home. Betty and Bill, Atlanta
