                  Car: Necessary

                  Fishing on the banks was forever changed when the first fishing pier – Jennette’s Pier – was opened in Nags Head back in 1939.

                  in September 2003, Hurricane Isabel swept the North Carolina coast, knocking down about 540 feet of Jennette’s Pier and practically shutting down an Outer Banks institution. It then became time to rethink the fishing pier concept, with the Aquariums taking the lead to rebuild Jennette’s as an all-concrete, 1,000-foot-long, educational ocean pier.

                  Within walking distance from the cottage, Jennette's Pier is a must-see attraction.

                  The Outer Banks Pier is 1.1 miles south of the cottage and in the opposite direction is Jennettes Pier .8 of a mile. It is an older landmark pier that has an original beach feeling. At night there is a small bar on the pier that serves all of your favorite beverages and has live music on the weekend during the summer months. It's a great little getaway after a long day on the beach.

                  Also don't forget the outdoor drama of the 'Lost Colony' in Manteo. First staged in 1937, The Lost Colony it is the nation’s premier and longest-running symphonic drama. Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paul Green.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1996

                  About the owner: This property is owned by Dave and Judy Graham and managed by their daughter Holly. This cottage is our home away from home. We hope you enjoy the coziness of this cottage with its owners original paintings and decor.

                  Why the Owner Chose Nags Head:
                  It's a 'true' beach cottage - its not a stark new cottage, but comfortable with lots of personality.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  What makes this cottage so special? It's away from the hustle and bustle of Kill Devil Hills and Kitty Hawk. The beach is rarely, if ever, overcrowded. Having a lifeguard on the beach in front of our cottage is comforting as we get older and have young ones still running the beach. My Insider Guide link -
