New Bern house description

**SPECIAL, HALF PRICE MONTHLY RENTALS (month costs the same as 2 weeks)! ** New dock and as always free use of kayaks, canoe and rowboat.

~OUR CEDAR SUNRISE COTTAGE ON CEDAR ISLAND IS AVAILABLE FOR JULY AND AUGUST AT DISCOUNTED RATES. INQUIRE BELOW.~

'SANDY POINT' is a well-appointed, very comfortable, and very clean home(as are all of our cottages). It has 2,800 sq. ft. of living area consisting of 4 bedrooms, 3 ceramic tiled bathrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen, and a lovely foyer with a hand painted mural. This home sleeps 8 comfortably.

The home is directly on the Neuse River just a mile across from the downtown New Bern historic district. 'SANDY POINT' is nautical and fun with a large screened porch. You can sit on the screened porch and watch the seagulls, pelicans, geese, and ducks, or the waterman pulling up his crab pots. The living room, dining room, and kitchen are very tranquil with their shades of blue and yellow, and hardwood and ceramic floors throughout.


New Bern is a beautiful, historic, small town. There are all of the historic sights, as well as, the natural beauty of the area. 'SANDY POINT' brings the two together in harmony. The home is located right on the Neuse with abundant wildlife at your sandy shoreline and was on the New Bern 'River Homes Tour' in 2002. And the Neuse River is a natural for boating and fishing. There is a dock at the home for your use, along with a canoe and kayaks. Just across the river is the town itself with its many interesting destinations including The Tryon Palace, museums, restaurants, theater, and shopping.

As if there were not enough to do in New Bern itself, the ocean and beaches are less than an hour away, and the quaint waterfront towns of Beaufort and Morehead City are even closer. The Croatan National Forest, is just outside of New Bern and, offers hiking and nature observing.

'SANDY POINT' is a great base to explore New Bern, and Eastern Carolina, but a lot of our guests prefer not to leave the large screened porch and sandy beach once they get here. So come see what 'SANDY POINT' and New Bern have to offer!!

We do ask that you leave your cigarettes and pets outside (or at home). And remember to bring your own bed linens, unless you'd like to use and wash ours. (We provide pillows, comforters, quilts, towels, beach towels, kitchen towels and sheets. But if you use ours they need to be washed, folded, and put away before you leave!!)

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1994

                  About the owner: Nick and Missy moved to New Bern, NC in 1988. Nick was originally born in England and led a very interesting life in many different countries. Missy was born in Md but always loved the southeast. After graduating from the Univ. of MD in 1983 we moved to Florida together. In 1988 we decided to sell everything and live on our sailboat, cruise the Bahamas and Florida, and then cruise up the East Coast. We got to NC and haven't left.

                  Why the Owner Chose New Bern:
                  We bought Sandy Point House in 1994 and did extensive renovations. We lived in the home for 14 years but when our son left for college we decided to build a smaller home. We had our vacation rentals, Sandy Garden Ctg. and Bamboo Ctg, but saw the need for still more vacation homes in New Bern. There were quite a few hotels in the area but still very few vacation rentals. We prefer to stay in a home when we travel and so assumed others would as well. So when we built our new house we decided to rent out our home to vacationers. And our wonderful guests have loved it here as much as we have!
