Durham Creek house description
Imagine your own private retreat, perched at the tip of a peninsula with over one mile of private waterfront. It's late afternoon and you’re relaxing in a rocking chair on a large screened porch anticipating a glorious sunset when you are surprised by a group of porpoises that swim by.
Imagine no more. Invite your boating friends to tie up at the dock for a visit.
Garrison Point at Durham Creek, is your exclusive waterfront home and the perfect setting for the ultimate get away vacation.
Garrison Point is a peninsula that juts from Durham Creek into the Pamlico River. Located only 12 miles from the Intracoastal Waterway, Durham Creek is a quiet, protected body of water that attracts boaters, fishermen, kayakers and an abundance of wildlife.
The house, built circa 1920 and fully renovated in 2006, has an open floor plan that combines dining and kitchen which leads to a huge living area that has a “Lodge” feel. Flanked by outdoor decks with grill and picnic table and a spacious screened-in porch off the living area. The four beautifully decorated bedrooms boast amazing water views from every window.
There is a separate guest house included in your rental with twin beds that convert into a king.
Conveniences include a fully functional modern kitchen, wet bar, wood burning fireplace, Dish Network Satellite System, DVD Player, High Speed Wireless Internet, and CD Stereo System with whole house indoor and outdoor speakers.
Every bedroom has a spectacular view of the water and all have ceiling fans. The Master includes a connecting bath, a king bed and satellite TV.
A boat dock, sandy swimming beach, and a two seat kayak are available for guests to enjoy.
Flounder, rock, redfish and trout are the most frequent dinner guests and blue crabs from the pier provide hours of fun and a delicious appetizer as well.
This property captivates the heart and soul of the beauty of eastern North Carolina and provides the perfect setting for a memorable and fun retreat.

The most relaxing experience
The most relaxing experience
My wife and I have had 40 years of vacations and this vacation spot is in our top five. We spent a week with our two daughters and their families and my wife's parents; a total of 10. There was so much space in the house and places to relax on the property that, if I was looking for someone in our group, I would have to occasionally use my cell phone. The age range of our group was eight to 75 and everyone loved their stay. You can spend a week boating, fishing, crabbing, hiking, or just plain sitting and reading on the lawn, one of the porches, on the hammock, or relaxed on a leather sofa. The area is very rural but there are two cities, Washington (North Carolina) and New Bern, less than an hour away and the free ferry over to Bath is just a few miles away. If you’re looking to get away and relax and still have all the comforts of home, then this is the place. Our family was planning a cruise for our vacation next year but everyone wants to know if we can return here.

We just returned form staying at this property. It is the most peaceful place that we've ever spent a vacation. There are plenty of things to do within driving distance. We rented a pontoon boat for the week at a local marina that allowed us to enjoy Durham Creek and the Pamlico River. The fishing was fun and the kids ennjoyed tubing on the river. Great place!!!!

To our hostess thankyou, thankyou, thankyou. Garrisons Point was beyond our expectations and the enviroment was astonishling beautiful. Much of our days were spent doing absolutely nothing but enjoying the screen porch and hammock with a good book or an iced beverage. Many times throughout the day we would explore our surroundings either by foot, bicycle, kayak. We found that many of our adventures were down along the river looking for shark teeth or fossils. One day I spent several hours in the kayak exploring Durham Creek and had the opportunity to get an amazing picture of an eagle as it perched high atop a dead pine tree over looking the water. Dolphins would swim by every evening at one point we counted 12 as they made their way up and down the river. We were lured to the historic district of Bath where we explored the Marsh-Palmer house, the old court house and the old high school as well as the beautiful landscaped gardens and homes. Deer were plentiful on Garrisons Point and are moving throughout the entire day and we enjoyed the exciment of catching a glimspe of one of these beautiful creatures. The house more than provided the comforts of home. The home had the feel of how it was "back in the day". You could almost hear the sound of fishermen as they would come home with their catch of flounder, crab or drum. We left our own legacy as we added to the excitment of the home catching our meal of flounder and blue crab. This was definetly the most relaxing and fun filled time I have experienced on vacation in a long, long time. To those of you who are seriously considering Garrisons Point, you will not be denied the comforts of home nor the excitment of adventure for any age. Once again I thank our hostess and her son for putting together a wonder portfolio of their splendid home. On the return trip home we were preparing for next years vacation in hopes of returning to Garrisons Point.
