THE “BAUM HOUSE” – Historic Cottage in Downtown Manteo: One great price. Nightly stays welcome at a minimum two night stay. Full week rentals are at a discounted rate. Book 7 nights and get two free nights.
Located just steps from the waterfront harbor, this large two-story cottage, is furnished in a colorful and comfy style. Historic Manteo is only a 10 minute drive to the Outer Banks beaches. Proudly owned by a 9th generation Baum Family member.
RENOVATED & RESTORED in 2012 :
The cottage has beautiful dark hardwood floors throughout contrasting with elegant white wallpapers and tall old-world ceilings in the living room and formal dining room. Perfect for a small wedding party.
GREAT KITCHEN - FRESH SEAFOOD:
The kitchen is bright and colorful, well equipped for preparing a fresh seafood dinner. Also you'll find a microwave, coffee maker, toaster-oven and blender for making spring soups or summer smoothies. BEDROOMS:
A charming restored full bath and bedrooms are on the second floor. All have quirky and quaint ceilings and closets – typical of vintage Manteo – and are furnished with large comfy beds (California King and Queen) with Manteo antiques. The second-story is centrally heated and air conditioned. The first level has window a/c units in each room and is centrally heated.
A high-ceiling sun-filled library is perfect for your early morning coffee and the daily paper – hardcopy or electronically delivered via the internet connection. (wifi)
Adjacent to the large living room is an elegantly furnished television room with a 32” LED and CD player for that late-nite flick. (Across the street is a petite ‘general store’ with a selection of films.)
AND THERE IS MORE:
From the cottage, it is only a few steps to the Manteo public boat ramp, the Manteo Yacht Harbor, the waterfront, street front shops and cafes. During the summer months, a Saturday Farmer’s Market is held in the dockside public park – locally grown produce, local honey and local seafood. The nearby weather tower is a must for youngsters as the flags indicate the current (and changing) weather.
The following attractions are all within a short 5-minute drive: Island Farm, NC Aquarium, The Lost Colony and The Elizabethan Gardens.
