Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I was very impressed with the service and amenities, such as a full unique quality breakfast, & carrot cake too for anytime during the day, as well as coffee from a Keurig machine anytime. While it is a house, you have your own room upstairs, which includes a full bathroom with everything you need to include quite hot water and plenty of towels. I was by myself so I don't need all the extra bed pillows, but I just moved them to the chairs out of the way. They also have good internet coverage which I have to have. The bed is comfortable and a good nights sleep (first night); only reason I did not sleep great the 2nd night was something I ate (not from there) and did not take a pill for that, until too late. The house is very unique and interesting too and the Owner is very hospitable. Definitely a good place for couples, and a single person that can't stand many low quality/poor customer service hotels, like I had prior to this place.

The bedroom was wonderful, and Jeanna was a great hostess. Her food was good, and it was fun to talk with her over breakfast. We're looking forward to staying again the next time we visit the Outer Banks
