North Carolina Tax Free Special

The State of North Carolina has declared August 7th and 8th, 2009 as Sales Tax Free Days ... which means that anyone making retail purchases during these two days will not have to pay Sales Tax.

The White Doe Inn is offering the same savings to guests staying at the inn on these two days and we will pick up your Occupancy Tax as well for a total savings of 11.75% ...

Take advantage of the savings and shop while you're on the Outer Banks for all those items you have been wanting to purchase ... especially if you have back-to-school needs for your children!

Dream Wedding in North Carolina - "For the Love of Two"

White Doe Inn Weddings are perfect for the smaller and more intimate ceremonies with numbers of no more than 30 people. We specialize in vow renewals and elopements with guests numbering up to 10 with our "For the Love of Two" Package which is very popular.

Ceremonies can be performed on one of the Outer Banks beaches, on the waterfront in downtown Manteo at either the Gazabo or Lighthouse, or in the White Doe Inn Gardens.

Check out our other Wedding Packages on The White Doe Inn Website.

I couldn't help adding the one of the dog dressed to run down the aisle to participate in the ceremony. All photographs are by Kristi Midgette Photography and services are performed by Rev. Robert E. Woody.

Ortega'z Grill - Manteo NC

Ortega'z Grill has brought cultural spice to Downtown Manteo. These people know how to fix local food with a southwestern flair, and a relaxed, casual atmosphere. You can enjoy lunch or dinner on the covered outdoor patio or in either of the two dining rooms. If you’re looking for a quick meal or a cold drink, head over to the ‘Wine Bar’ in the center of the restaurant. It’s where people gather - locals and visitors alike. Inside or out, the restaurant has a comfortable feel and a reputation for delivering exceptional food.


As one of The White Doe Inn's guest said, "Ortega'z Wild Mushroom Cheesecake! (on lunch menu but had it for dinner) was amazing!" I would definitely agree ... a unique dish that is just incredible! On the ribs (wet or dry rub), well, unless you are a big, big eater, a half-rack is plenty enough! The salads are a meal unto themselves.

Meet the "Littlest Innkeeper"

Many of you have not had an opportunity to meet The White Doe Inn's "Littlest Innkeeper" ... so, let's get acquainted since periodically she will be featured on our Blog! Anne Sterling is our incredibly beautiful Granddaughter now 20 months old. She visits occasionally just to socialize a little, flirt with the male guests, entertain and grab a cookie! Here she decided to share her talents at the piano before heading out to the beach for a little fun in the sun!
