Pine Knoll Shores cottage description

This lovely property was recently taken over by the daughter of the original owner of 37 years. The original owner was formerly from Connecticut and moved to Pine Knoll Shores in 1977. Her ancestors were landowners in Cherry Point, NC and nearby Beaufort.

Pine Knoll Shores is known as one of the loveliest communities on the Bogue Banks Island which stretches from Fort Macon at east end to Emerald Isle at the west end. We have an extremely well patrolled and safe community.

Our home is well suited for a carefree family vacation. We are child friendly. We have an open level lot with trees and forested areas. You can walk to the beach in less than five minutes or a one minute drive to the gated private parking lot (free parking for our guests) with steps leading up to the 'sittum' where you can sit and eat or have an evening cocktail and a magnificent panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean. (The 'sittum' has an outdoor shower area as well as a Porta-Potty in the parking area.) Another set of steps leads down to the beach and the dunes. If you bring your boat you will have free access privileges from gated private boat launch areas.

We are dog friendly with pets that are well trained and socialized and up to date on shots and flea treatments. Our beach is dog friendly and everyone is requested to please clean up. An additional security deposit of $100.00 PER PET is required and will be fully refunded within 14 business days after a satisfactory post-stay inspection.

DON'T BE INTIMIDATED BY OUR WHITE LIVING ROOM FURNITURE! THEY ARE WASHABLE SLIP COVERS AND WE PROVIDE 'THROW' COVERS LOCATED IN THE ROOM IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR PETS OR KIDS (OR ADULTS).

Our living room has a TV, VCR, DVD and a CD stereo player and comfortable seating and wood burning fireplace for cooler months. The room looks out over the deep frontage of the property onto a treed vista.

Our kitchen is very large with full amenities and seating at a solid pine table for up to eight people.

There is an ensuite bathroom in the master bedroom with a large shower stall. The bathroom in the main hall has a full bathtub/shower and was recently completely refurbished. A large sofa in the living room could accomodate a child (7th person) at parents discretion. Fresh linens and towels are included in the rental. $100.00 cleaning fee is in addition to the rental fee.

                    My wife and I spent a wonderful week in Pine Knoll Shores. The home is full of interesting books and antiques. It feels like a home, not a rental. We had a very relaxing stay, as did our Corgi. The area is wonderful for long walks and beach access is very near by, either a short walk or quick drive if you are loaded up with beach gear. We would stay here again.

                    Great location for the beach and aquarium! This house is perfect for a family vacation: roomy, well-equipped and stocked with many things you will need. They even thought to make beach towels available! It is clean, well-maintained and comfortable--especially for our dog.

                    From initial planning to our return to Philly, the owners were ultra-responsive to our questions and generous in accommodating our requests. We shared a week in this wonderful home with another family and had a blast!!! We arrived to a tidy & clean house with beds ready for us to collapse into. Throughout the week, we walked to the beach, explored the neighborhood, cooked and ate many meals in the huge kitchen/dining room. Our daughters' feasted on their first fresh raw oysters from the owners' fave seafood market, Blue Ocean Market! And then there were none for the rest of us, ha ha ha! We spent many relaxing afternoons/evenings reading from the book collection, as well as raucous family movie nights, Sound of Music, Julie Andrews rocks- yeay! Although the weather was a little uncooperative, our forays to the beach yielded several bags of seashells, a few scrapes, a rescue operation into the waves to retrieve our kite, and finally, four shivering kids gathered around steaming mugs of spiced hot chocolate! Our stay has given us many happy memories. We are extremely grateful for the graciousness of this house and its owners. We shall return! (with our piano sheet music & when it gets warmer :) )

                    The home was so conveniently located. The beach,with its white sands, was never over-crowded. The home has such a charming touch of the owner's mother. It made me miss my grandmother with its charm and beautiful setting. It was wonderful to see old-fashioned items mixed with modern conveniences. I would recommend this easily to people who want to relax in a beautiful woodsy setting.

                    This was a wonderful family vacation home. The house made us feel completely relaxed & at home. It had everything we needed & then some. Steve & Nancy ( owners ) had a folder on the kitchen table when we arrived. It was filled w/ things to do places to see even a map of the island. The kids loved Golfin Dolphin. It had everything any age kid would want to do. The Aquarium was very nice too. Comfortable & clean is a great way to describe the home. The pics do not do it justice. The internet access helped me keep up w/ work while on vacation. They also allowed our St. Bernards which most places would not allow. So the entire family could come along & enjoy vacation together. The beach is very close w/ in walking distance. The pass they supplied for the private beach & parking was an awesome bonus. The beach is beautiful, very peaceful & non-crowded extemely awesome. The beach is pet friendly w/ no restricted hours for pets was also a bonus for us. This was one of the cleaniest beaches I have seen. We found a lot of beautiful shells on the beach & the locals were extemely friendly & helpful. This was by far one of the most relaxing vacations we have had. We are already planning another trip back. Thank you Steve & Nancy

                    This was a very comfortable and clean home and very accomodating for families with pets or children. The owners were so helpful and responsive and made us feel welcome. The location was close to the beach and to the sound with private access to both. It is in a quiet, shady neighborhood; nice for walks after dinner or sitting on the porch in rocking chairs. The guest bathroom looked like it had been nicely updated recently. We wish we could have stayed longer.

                    We needed a rental while waiting to close on our house. The owners were very accomodating. The house was just as described in the listing. It was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The aquarium is only minutes away and the beach was very close by as well. Quiet and very clean beach. We had one tiny hiccup after our arrival, and the owners were very attentive and made sure everything was promptly taken care of. Overall a great stay. No complaints.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: The present owners (daughter of the original owner) are professional designers who have updated the house with new paint, furnishings, bedding, and amenities with much love and hard work. You will find the furnishings an eclectic mix of the contemporary and antique.

                  Why the Owner Chose Pine Knoll Shores:
                  Formerly the residence of the owners' mother whom we visited often for the past 37 years. This has always been our family seashore paradise. The ultimate place to chill out, reconnect with family and nature, and just plain decompress. We think you will agree.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Just plain relaxing. While dining, watching birds feed throughout the day at the rear of the property. Visiting the beach especially in mornings and at the end of the day for that wonderful sunset. We have tons of books and videos for your enjoyment on those rainy days. And don't forget the Aquarium and historic Fort Macon. Four screen movie theater just five minutes from the house in Atlantic Beach. The Food Lion supermarket is located in the same complex as the theatre plus 4-5 restaurants and shopping. Morehead City is accessed by the bridge connected to the mainland. As the area has grown up over the years big box stores abound along the highway. The historic town of Beaufort is just 15-20 minutes drive and a fun town to visit and take in the visiting boats docked off of the boardwalk. Many fine restaurants throughout the town as well as shopping. Great for taking the kids after dinner for an ice cream cone. Enjoy the Beaufort Maritime Museum !
