Outer Banks Waterfront Lodging | Historic Manteo, NC
Burrus House Inn was the vision of Jack Burrus, a lifelong resident of Manteo, NC, who was passionate not just about his hometown, but also this unique waterfront property. Jack dreamed of converting his family cottage to an inn so that others could one day share in his enjoyment of waterfront life on Shallowbag Bay. Embarking on this dream, Jack sold a portion of the original property to a developer and relocated the cottage structure an acre north to its current location. What stands today is the product of that dream, with Jack’s daughter at the helm. We’ve embarked upon a new chapter, and look forward to sharing it with you.
Burrus House Inn is an all-suite property boasting waterfront views of Shallowbag Bay from each of our twelve unique spaces. Our guests will enjoy a well-appointed sitting room, kitchenette, luxurious bathroom, comfortable king or queen bedding and a private deck with cozy hammocks and seating. For larger groups or families, many of our suites are spacious enough to accommodate the addition of one or two of our blow-up mattress beds for the kids. Alternatively, please consider our two-story Crow’s Nest suite with king bed, twin beds in the loft and two private balconies (available March 2020).
Your stay at the Inn includes a welcome basket, continental breakfast and afternoon tea or cocktail under the vaulted ceiling of our treasured "Peacock Room." Our friendly staff is happy to help with any concierge needs - dinner reservations or suggestions for things to do in Manteo and the Outer Banks.
Also, guests of the Inn will enjoy complimentary use of our watersports equipment (kayaks and paddleboards) and bikes to explore the island. Our brand new pool and soundfront hot tub — an amenity like no other on Roanoke Island – are projected to be completed in late August 2019. The pool is designed for relaxing both in and out of the water. It will have a 3-5’ overall depth, in-pool bench along one side, and spacious surrounding lounge area furnished with tables, umbrellas and lounge furniture. Additionally, we will offer towel service and an on-site bar to round out your poolside experience. For summertime sunsets or chilly off-season evenings, take a soak in our hot tub, nestled on the soundside of the Inn with spectacular waterviews.
