Property description

Picturesque waterfront home with stunning views of the Neuse River!! Rock or swing on the wrap-around porch and watch the dolphins come up the river to play in the morning and head back down at dusk. Relax on the pier as you fish for croaker, flounder and more—or, tie a crabtrap to the piling and have fresh crab for dinner, unless you prefer grilling steaks on the barbeque. Take a dip in the pool, or relax on the riverfront in an Adirondack chair as you watch the boats go by. The private beach is a perfect place to swim, sunbathe, kayak—or just relax in the hammock. Whatever you choose, you're sure to enjoy the slow pace and peaceful atmosphere at China Grove Plantation. For variety, bike or jog to Oriental, the “Sailing Capital of North Carolina.” Cala Lily Cottage sleeps 4-5 and has a separate guesthouse can sleep 2 more. A single step up offers easy access to each building.

Cala Lily Cottage offers access to many different activities and attractions. Take a quick trip to New Bern, only thirty minutes away, for fabulous dining opportunities, shopping in the picturesque town square, or tour the famous Tyron Palace. Or, simply stroll along the harbor and admire the many boats, both motor and sail. Two miles down the road from Cala Lily Cottage, you can hop the free Minnesott Beach ferry for a fifteen minute ride across the Neuse River. Once off the ferry, you can spend the day at the nearby Beaufort waterfront, where you can take a sight-seeing boat ride to Cape Lookout, or swim and walk the beach where the wild ponies run. Relax over lunch at one of the many fine outdoor restaurants in Beaufort. Across the bridge from Beaufort, Morehead City offers many deep-sea fishing boat trips. Continue down the road through Havilock, home of the Cherry Point marine base, to come full circle to the ferry for the short ride back home to Cala Lily Cottage.
