Welcome Our Tranquil House Inn Team

Manteo, NC – Over the past several months, our operations team at Carolina Retreats have been steadily working behind the scenes in completing the recently renovated Tranquil House Inn, located in Manteo, NC. From its inception, The Tranquil House Inn has been a staple for travelers looking to experience a relaxing getaway along the water. Offering 25 enchanting rooms as well as a fantastic on-site restaurant, The Tranquil House Inn is poised for success as they embark on this new journey forward.

We’ve assembled a fantastic team to lead the charge here at The Tranquil House Inn. From operations manager to an exciting new head chef at our 1587 Restaurant, our dedicated crew are ready to create an unforgettable vacation experience for every guest!

Ashley Vaught, General Manager

Ashley Vaught was born and raised in North Carolina and considers herself blessed to call the Outer Banks her home for the past 16 years. After graduating from East Carolina University, Ashley spent 19 years in the hospitality industry with experience in operating a limited-service hotel to a full service Four Diamond Resort. Southern hospitality is the core of Ashley; she understands at the Tranquil House we aren’t selling hotel rooms we are offering guests the opportunity to book an experience and build a family memory.
