Beaufort house description

BeaufortHouse is on North River with plenty of room - away from the town yet close enough (about 3 miles) to enjoy what beautiful Beaufort has to offer. Large family room looks out on the water, eat-in kitchen and separate dining room which seats 8-10.. Curl up in the recliner in the living room to enjoy a book, away from the gang, or sit out on the screened porch and enjoy the waterfowl and perhaps even dolphin playing in North River. Watch the beacon of the Cape Lookout lighthouse across the river. Bring your lawn games to enjoy, or take a stroll through the neighborhood. Lots of fun things to do in the area and when you tire, come back to a comfortable home, enjoy an outdoor shower, serve yourself a cool drink, put on some music and prop up your feet. Beaufort House is a great place to make memories!

                            The Beaufort House was LOVELY! The rooms were clean, well maintained and accurately described with the pictures. The house is located right on the river - the back of the house faces the east and we coud see beautiful sunrises. While we were there we also had a chance to see the full moon over the river. Since it was rather cool for the time of year we were there, we needed some propane for the heater. After contacting the owner, the issue was fixed in a very short time - but there was a backup heat pump that kept us warm so we never had a problem. I would HIGHLY recommend Beaufort House to friends, relatives - anyone who wants a quiet vacation house, on a river that's soothing and makes one feel relaxed. We had 2 pugs with us and even they enjoyed romping in the yard. The house is spacious and can easily fit a large family. We stayed for 4 weeks enjoying the large screen television, screened in porch, and the spacious living areas. Beaufort is a quant village right on the river with shops and restaurants for every kind of palate. We enjoyed walking past the anchored boats and seeing the differnt types of vessels. Some of the things we did - went on a ferry ride to see the horses, visited the Aquarium - which is a must see for the area. We took our pups to Radio Island to walk in the water and in the summer, I imagine, it would be a good place to swim. Not too far from the house is a long fishing pier and boat launch. We ate at Clawsons Restaurant, Cox's Restaurant, and the Amos Mosquito's. All had delicious food and worth returning to. Food Lion and Piggly Wiggly are the 2 main grocery stores, and of course there were chain eateries on Route 70. In summary, we enjoyed the house and area, worked well with the owners, and would go back in a heart beat during for a summer vacation!

                            My friend and I met at the Beaufort House for a weeks stay. She is from Virginia and I from Piedmont NC. This was a great place to stay, the house had everything we needed and was clean and inviting. The view can't be beat (back yard), sun risings were awesome! Two days we got to see dolphins in the back yard (water)...amazing! My friend brought her kayak and had an easy access to the river.. She said the water afforded serene sunrise paddles, in company with water fowl and even dolphins one day. We ejoyed exploring Beaufort and the surrounding areas, Island Ferry to the Cape Lookout Lighthouse was great. Thanks Kathy for sharing this great home with others and thanks to Nancy too.

                            Beaufort House was the perfect location to re-connect with our son after his return from deployment. Plenty of space for our group of 5 adults to be together, even in the kitchen. The house is also an easy drive to the air station, the beach, stores and restaurants. Whether you are looking for peace and quiet or just a comfortable place to sleep after a busy day, Beaufort House will be perfect.

                            While the weather wasn't what we'd hoped for, we still had a wonderful time. The views over the North River, with the Cape Lookout lighthouse on the horizon, were wonderful. The historic Beaufort waterfront was a five minute drive away and several grocery stores, restaurants, and shops were even closer. The home is very spacious and well appointed. I felt like I was a guest at a relatives home. We hope to go back some day.

                            My friends and I had a lovely weekend at Beaufort house, very comfortable, We enjoyed looking at all the shells and it inspired us to go to Shakleford Island and look for some of our own. We fell within the category of "girls getaway"

                            We had the awesome opportunity to stay here in August, 2012 and immediately fell in love with the place. It was better than described. The pictures don't do it justice. It was so clean and open. The view of the "River" is just breathtaking. We fished right there and caught some pretty nice fish. The location of this home couldn't be more convenient...we shopped in Morhead City, ate in Beaufort and relaxed right there at the house. Also, the fact that it is a dog-friendly home was important to us. Thanks so much and we will definitely be staying again in 2013! I'm just sorry it took me so long to write this review---I thought I had already done it, oops!

                          Year Purchased: 1980

                          Why the Owner Chose Beaufort:
                          My wife and I had travelled up and down the coast of the two Carolinas for years looking for just the right town. When we spent our first weekend in Beaufort, we knew that we had found our ideal place to have a home. The town was quaint, charming and the locals were friendly. We loved the fresh seafood and the many small coastal villages nearby. Cross the bridge to Morehead City and all the shopping that one could need such as a Wal-Mart supercenter and a new Lowe's home improvement center along with doctors and a hospital are just minutes away. We live near Charlotte and it is long drive but worth it when we get there. All of our family calls it 'Getting the Beaufort lazies'. It is a little less than an hour from the New Bern airport which has flights connecting to Raleigh and Charlotte. If you are looking for place to stay which feels like a home rather than some cookie cutter furnished condo, look no further. This is our home away from home and is filled with the things that makes it feel like our home such as furniure and antiques from our parents. The kithen is my domain and expect to find just about everything that a good cook would want. Our yard faces North River which is a huge bay which leads to the ocean. Stand at the water and you can see Cape Lookout lighthouse. You can fish from the seawall at high tide or call NC Marine Fisheries Dept. to find out where on the river you can dig for clam and oysters at low tide.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Relaxing. Enjoying nature. When we want to ride to the Beaufort waterfront for drinks and a nice meal with friends, we call our 'D.D.' (a taxi) and for just a few dollars we are driven home safely. Away from the hustle and busy streets of town yet only a few minutes away.
