“What a Great B&B!!”
Lynn and Bill have restored this beautiful old home into the warm and charming Wanchese B&B. It’s located in a quiet neighborhood off the main highway but centrally located to all the main attractions of the Outer Banks, whether going north or south. Our room was on the first floor with private bathroom and cable tv. It was very clean and the bed was comfortable. In the morning Lynn prepared all the guests a 3-course breakfast with a different variety each day. We found Lynn’s knowledge of the local area quite helpful in planning each day’s adventure. In the afternoon we enjoyed relaxing in the spacious sun room. We’d recommend the Wanchese B&B to anyone visiting the Outer Banks.

“A Wonderful Place to Stay” 
The Wanchese Inn B&B is a wonderful place to stay. It is a lovely old home carefully restored by the loving hands of the owners Lynn and Bill. It has charm from the past and modern conveniences to make your stay on the Outer Banks very relaxing. We made a short trip to the coast to see family we had not seen for twenty years. The trip was so enjoyable in part because Lynn made sure we had everything we needed before we could ask. We were even able to bring family to the Inn and just sit in this lovely home and talk, laugh and reconnect. Wanchese is out of the hustle and bustle of the beaches but very close to all the attractions you would want to see. You can run and sight see all day and then come back to the Wanchese Inn were you find a quite, clean, and safe room waiting for you. It will not be another twenty years before we go back to the Outer Banks. Now we have a wonderful place to stay!

“Excellent Stay” 
Lynn and Bill do a fantastic job at making you feel right at home. Great stories and conversation. Clean room, great breakfast every day, quiet neighborhood. Extremely comfortable bed. Plenty of living area to relax. Located about 4 miles from downtown Manteo in Wanchese, it is very convenient and just a short drive to beaches, entertainment, and historical sights. Very quiet for those who want to escape the mobs of summer vacationers. A lot of repeat customers stayed during the same time we did, which speaks volumes of the satisfaction of other clients as well. Stayed in room #4 with private bathroom, cable tv, and free wifi. Room #4 is the only downstairs room. All other bedrooms are upstairs. Will definitely be our first choice at place to stay again next time in the area.


“This is A+++ place to stay!” 
I have not felt so comfortable away from my home for a long time. All credits to the Inn keepers for their hard work and dedication. Lynn and Bill make this place the first class B&B. The minute you enter this house, you feel like home. The breakfast is fresh and delish. The house is super clean. Most rooms are small, but comfortable with basic amenities. This B&B is located on a quite street, close to the beach and best restaurants. Do not miss it, you will not regret!

“Spacious & Gracious” 
We thoroughly enjoyed a quiet and peaceful night at the Wanchese Inn. The room was very spacious and the bathroom was huge. Lynn was a gracious host and breakfast was excellent. We will definitely stay at the Wanchese Inn on future visits to the Outer Banks.
