We stayed only one night, but thoroughly enjoyed it. The grounds are very nicely kept. The house itself is immaculate, filled with all sorts of beautiful antiques and memorabilia. We were in Zena's Room, on the second floor, with private bathroom (shower). This one has an antique oak bed with feather bedding, and complementing antique furnishings of the same quality....

We are frequent flyers to this B&B as it only takes us a couple of hours to get there when we want to get away. The house has beautiful old antiques and lots of Coca Cola memorabilia and other interesting artifacts. Jeanne is an excellent host and always makes wonderful breakfasts. My hubby loves her cheese grits and nearly always...

For a quick getaway weekend I decided to take a trip back to the Island House of Wanchese, and was completely happy with my stay as always. I've been going to this B&B on and off for years now and will continue to return. Jeanne, the Inn Keeper is truly one of the most welcoming and hospitable hosts I've met...

Website picture made Willie's room look larger than it was. Granted we are tall, but we kept smacking our heads on the slanted ceiling. I booked the room for the tub, but it was really too small to be comfortable and relaxing The main problem was the musty, trapped in an antique store smell with an overlay of wet dog....

The room referenced in this review is our suite 18X12, the adjoining sitting is room 10X12. Ceilings are sloped, I always point this feature out to guests, never had complaint Musty Odor??? This building is over a century old, therefore, I am very aware of the potential for odors. I take steps to keep the house smelling fresh. Air conditioning...

We found this B&B just perfect for us. We stayed a week and could have stayed longer. At first we were concerned about the one bad review listed here but with all the other good reviews we decided to try it. While the owner does breed dogs, they are well behaved and for our entire stay we heard no barking...

We were so happy with everything about this B&B. We didn't want a beach hotel among the noise and craziness but wanted to be close enough to get to the remote stretches of beach to really relax. Island House was the perfect choice to get us away from nighttime noise and just a few minutes from the major thoroughfares. Accomodations...

Beach lover in Middle Atlantic? Visit this wonderful B&B on Roanoke Island - away from the crowded beaches of Duck & Kill Devil Hills yet a short (10 min) drive to the gorgeous dunes of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Coquina Beach is a must visit- enjoyed the multitude of private parking areas for beach solitude. The Island House has...

We have had the pleasure of staying at the Island House B&B several times over the past 10 years and most recently the end of March for 3 nights. Our suite was beautifully decorated with many antiques and a bed with fluffy pillows, a comfortable mattress, and a beautiful antique quilt. The InnKeepers, Jean and Roy Green, have paid great...

“We stayed in "Cleo's Room" and we definitely recommend it. It's on the second floor and it overlooks the lovely gardens and gazebo on the property.”

“We stayed in Willie's suite with our pup, and couldn't have been happier—the owners suite was below us, and she even raises some puppies and we didn't have any problems with sound. Even though we were far into the house we felt comfortable coming and going as we pleased, and we are confident that all the other rooms possess the same qualities.”
