New Bern cottage description

**~HALF PRICE MONTHLY,& WE NOW HAVE 2 BIKES FOR OUR GUESTS TO USE.~**

'BAMBOO COTTAGE' is a newly renovated 1940's cottage with lovely hand-crafted stained glass windows and wood floors. This cottage is very clean and comfortable, as are all of our cottages. It is located just minutes across the Neuse River from downtown historic New Bern. (This cottage is not located directly on the water but is only one house back and has water access.)

This charming 1400 square foot, two bedroom, two bathroom cottage has a large living/dining room, a large kitchen with all new cabinets and appliances, a screened porch, a sunroom and a large deck overlooking the 'bamboo jungle' as Nick calls it. This comfy cottage has privacy and yet is close to everything.

New Bern is a beautiful, historic, small town. There are all of the historic sites, as well as, the natural beauty of the area. 'BAMBOO COTTAGE' is just another perfect spot to enjoy them both. The cottage is located just one lot back from the Neuse River. Although it isn’t directly on the river, it has all of the advantages with water access at the end of the street. Our 'BAMBOO COTTAGE' guests also have usage of a canoe, bikes, and kayaks.

Just across the river is the town itself with it’s many interesting destinations, including the Tryon Palace, museums, restaurants, and shopping. And if you would like to venture a little further, the ocean and beaches are less than an hour away, and the quaint waterfront towns of Beaufort and Morehead City are even closer. The Croatan National Forest is just outside of New Bern and offers hiking and nature observing.

                                If you are looking for a place to stay in the area, look no further! We have stayed at the BAMBOO COTTAGE multiple times & have been delighted. It has everything you need, including a washer and dryer. The kitchen makes it very easy to prepare a meal ... and the porch swing is highly recommended to sip your morning coffee =) Lastly, the owners were very accomodating in giving us access to the propery since were arrived after hours. Again, if you looking for a place in the area ... look no further!

                                My husband and I loved the location of this cottage, very quiet and peaceful. We brought our tandem bike and enjoyed many "flat" rides to nearby towns. The cottage was very clean and spacious. We loved the hardwood floors, all the natural light, the front porch, and the back deck. The cable TV selection was not the best (no sports channels), but everything else was to our liking. We recommend this cozy cottage!

I can't promise more cable stations though :-) Most of our guests tell us that they are so busy exploring New Bern and the area that they hardly watch the telly. Thanks again!!

                                Great front porch for meeting friendly neighbors. Enjoyed the 2 full baths and fully equipped kitchen. Daily bike rides and walks near the river were fun on the level roads. The firm beds made for restful sleeping. Spacious common areas permitted multiple acitivities in a well heated, air conditioned, or opened-air environment. This cottage is well decorated with a seaside theme. The off-street parking handled 2 cars easily. The back deck picnic table lead to many outside meals. Adequate storage is available for clothes and each bedroom has a closet. This cottage experience was great!!!

                                We had a wonderful winter getaway here and highly recommend it! The house is bigger than the pictures make it look, and the decor is bright and inviting and very comfortable. The house was remarkably clean and well-kept. The owner was extremely helpful and easy to reach. New Bern is five minutes away by car and offers so much history and interesting architecture. The Bamboo Cottage provides privacy, convenience, and warm hospitality. We loved our weekend there and wish we could have stayed longer to do some of the jigsaw puzzles there!

                                Owner response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. Many of our guests have told us that our Bamboo Ctg. is much nicer than the pictures. I guess we aren't the best photographers! Come again soon. Missy & Nick

                                We spent the past weekend in the Bamboo Cottage and absolutely loved it. We were visiting family in New Bern. The location of the cottage was great- only minutes from downtown New Bern, and very easy to find. Missy was very accommodating and kind, and it is obvious she and Nick have put a lot of love and work into maintaining this rental. The price was very reasonable. We paid the same price as others did for one room in a hotel that weekend. The pictures do not do this cottage justice! It is adorably decorated, spotless with all the amenities and beautiful wood floors. The front porch swing and rocking chairs are perfect for relaxing, the beds are comfy, and the layout is great. It is so clean and kid friendly. We did not need to do much childproofing for our 13 month old twins. All in all, a great find! I highly recommend staying here.

                                The first sight are the gorgeous floors. I stayed for a month during an unexpected heat wave during May and June and was comfortable even when the air conditioner shut down for a few hours one day (rolling blackouts) There are ceiling fans in living room, dining room, kitchen, and both bedrooms so I was always comfortable. The owners were very quick to respond... even when I forgot trash day...they collected it all and took it away for me. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, though being there 4 weeks meant I would have enjoyed a larger TV, but I survived. My 3G worked brilliantly there. The cottage is literally minutes from downtown New Bern and a couple minutes more to the major shopping. I was visiting family and house hunting. Bamboo Cottage was the perfect location to visit Havelock and explore the surrounding area. I appreciate the hospitality and good humor of the owners. It made my stay a delight.

                                We really enjoy the Banboo Cottage, gave my son -that is in the Marines- a relax feeling just like he was at home. It is quiet, nice, clean and with everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. We recomend for any family that would like to have a home away from home. Glenn & Julia

                                We really enjoyed our time spent here at the cottage. It was nice to come back here after a day spent running around. The accomodations were wonderful!! Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2006

                              About the owner: Nick and Missy moved to New Bern, NC in 1988. Nick was originally born in England and led a very interesting life in many different countries. Missy was born in Md but always loved the southeast. After graduating from the Univ. of MD in 1983 we moved to Florida together. In 1988 we decided to sell everything and live on our sailboat, cruise the Bahamas and Florida, and then cruise up the East Coast. We got to NC and haven't left.

                              Why the Owner Chose New Bern:
                              We live in New Bern and saw that it had so much to offer visitors. There were hotels in the area but very very few vacation rentals. We prefer to stay in a home when we travel and so assumed others would as well. So we bought and renovated Bamboo Cottage in 2006. And our wonderful guests have loved it here as much as we have!

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                              The Bamboo Ctg. is not directly on the water but has a water access just at the end of the street. There is swimming, fishing, crabbing, shark tooth hunting, canoeing and kayaking (we have boats for our guests), biking.
