Nags Head cottage description

Take a step back in time and enjoy old Nags Head charm at it's best. The larger cottage on the property, 'Surf Shack', has just undergone a complete and total renovation. It has all the modern amenities we require, plus the old school charm of 1950s Nags Head. The smaller cottage, 'Surf Shack Too', is just beginning its renovation.

The Surf Shack Cottages are located on the Beach Road at MP 11, directly across from the Bainbridge Beach Access. We're just a few short steps to the beach and very close to the Nags Head Pier, restaurants, shopping and Jockey's Ridge. The Nags Head Pier has live music several nights a week in the summer. Our favorite activity (other than sunbathing, of course) is to take some cold beverages down to the beach and listen to the tunes from the comfort of our own sandy spot.

Surf Shack has 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Bright airy Living Room with vaulted ceiling, Kitchen and Dining/Sunroom. The largest bedroom has a queen bed and the two smaller bedrooms have full size beds. The cottage is equipped with a new flat screen TV, cable, high speed internet, AC, laundry and a gas grill. Enjoy coffee in the morning or a cocktail in the evening on one of the two front porches.

Sorry to the doggies, but Surf Shack Cottages does not allow pets.

Come stay at Surf Shack Cottages, we know you'll love it!

                  Location

                  Car: Recommended

                  Our cottage is about 100 steps to the sand, just across the Beach Road. We are in walking distance to the Nags Head Pier, Lucky 12 and Tortugas. Just a short drive to Jockey's Ridge, Wright Museum, Historic Manteo and lots more.

                  Please note that Surf Shack is located right on the Beach Road. The road can get busy, particularly on the weekend. Most guests don't have a problem with this, and find the proximately to the beach makes up for any traffic noise.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: My husband and I have been renovating historic properties since we were married 10 years ago. It's become sort of a sick obsession that we can't quit. Most of our experience has been in the Historic Fan neighborhood of Richmond, but when these old school cottages became available, we couldn't say no. We've spent the last 2 years bringing Surf Shack One back to it's original condition - or even better!

                  Why the Owner Chose Nags Head:
                  We knew right away this was the Nags Head property for us. We are beach lovers and you can't beat the location, just a few steps to the sand. Plus, these cottages had so much potential, they just needed someone to show them some love and care.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  The old 1950s Nags Head Cottages are becoming somewhat of a rarity. Many have been torn down to make room for the big mansions. Our opinion is that bigger is not always better, especially when it comes to old school cottage charm. This cottage provides a romantic getaway for two or a cozy place for mom, dad and the kids. Come relax for a bit at Surf Shack Cottages and we think you'll agree.
