Our charming 1930s bungalow was fully renovated in 2012 but retains period details that make it one of the town's historic homes. And Seagarden Cottage is furnished with all the comforts of home because it truly is one-- ours-- when we're not sharing it with you. The master bedroom has a Queen-sized bed and light-filled private bath with a claw-foot tub and decorative arch that was preserved from the kitchen and relocated during the renovation (the master bath, it's consistently remarked, is the best room in the house). The second bedroom also features a queen-sized bed, and is serviced by the hall bathroom, just outside the bedroom door. The living room and the dining room are appointed with antiques and family heirlooms, and the sun room has a wide-screen TV and cozy couches and chairs for lounging when it's time to relax with a good book or watch a movie. The kitchen is fully equipped with a farmhouse sink, 4-burner stove, microwave, full-sized fridge, and Keurig coffee maker (with refillable filters and a coffee grinder if you prefer freshly ground coffee to single-use K-cups). And perhaps most notably, located across from Shallowbag Bay and just steps from the Manteo Waterfront, Seagarden Cottage has a wide front porch with comfortable seating, while a private garden affords plenty of privacy in back. The home's original owner, Mrs. Sybil Jones, made a name for herself with her lovely garden, for which she often received Roanoke Island Garden Club's "Garden of the Month" distinction. Our mother, with love and hard work, has continued that garden tradition, and hopes that 'Miss Sybil,' as she is still known around town, would have been proud.

We had a lovely stay in Seagarden Cottage. The property is pretty, homely and comfortable - very much like the owners just popped out and told us to make ourselves at home! The location is great, just a moment from the boardwalk and waterfront businesses in Manteo and a short walk from the festival park. The levels of equipment in the cottage are good - comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, plenty of towels and linens (including some beach towels and chairs), pots and pans in the kitchen, good laundry room etc. We did overlook the lack of dishwasher but we managed to survive! This was our first trip to the OBX and we really loved it - we spent several days on the beach in Nags Head as well as taking a kayaking trip from Kitty Hawk, going up to explore Duck, and visiting the NC Aquarium. If you are visiting with kids be sure to check out the activities that the aquarium offers in addition to the general admission - we did a 'Breakfast with the Rays' one morning which was really cool (they are listed on outerbanks.com). We also found some good restaurants including great gluten-free choices (which is essential for a good holiday if you have a coeliac in the family) - Avenue Grille on the waterfront does an amazing GF burger and Coastal Cravings in Duck was tricky to find (it's in an old gas station building!) but worth it for the fabulous GF crab cakes. Would also highly recommend visiting Downtown Books in Manteo if you like a good old-fashioned bookstore (with a resident foster cat we unfortunately could not take back to England with us!). It was a very relaxing time and we hope to be back one day. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us and introducing us to a fabulous part of the world.
