We were completely blown away by this property. We stayed here intending to visit the town of Beaufort but spent as much time at "home" as out touring, the property was just that great! The views and sunsets are of course magnificent, but there's so many little things to see as well. The tide changes the water depth significantly, allowing for various fishing birds to come and go. At night when the tide was in we could sit on the porch and actually hear the small fish jumping. There are thousands of fiddler crabs at the edge of the water, and some much bigger crabs by the dock. We also saw schools of fish and even a small bat ray in the water. On a whim we rented a kayak from Down East Kayaks (they deliver!) and explored the water by boat as well. Of course we did eventually make it into Beaufort, the drive is pleasant and we thought it well worth the extra few minutes to be outside of town at this beautiful spot. The house is well cared for and nicely decorated with a fun tropical theme. The owner is also very responsive and helpful if you need anything. Highly recommend this property!

My husband and I stayed @ the Saltmarsh home and fell in love with the view. It was tucked away from all the hectic tourist areas but still close enough to enjoy a night out. We were close enough to make day trips to Cedar Island, Altantic Beach, & Shackleford island. The best part of staying @ Saltmarsh was watching the wildlife and enjoying coffee on the front porch. A great place for a small family to spend quality time together enjoying nature. We will be back.

Excellent accommodations! We have enjoyed our stay here in the Fall 2 years in a row and find Donna to be a great host and the cottage to be in a beautiful location with fantastic water views. The sunset is absolutely gorgeous from the porch, or the dock. This cottage is ideal if you are a fisherman or boater as there is easy access to Cape Lookout, Beaufort, Morehead City and more. This is a great place for Kayakers to explore the Core Sound and North River, with easy and protected access right in front of the house. The cottage and the grounds are well maintained and the interior is very clean and comfortable. (we saw no evidence of items mentioned in the prior post). The 2 bedrooms, 1 bath provide ample space for 4 and there is room in the living room for another adult on the couch if needed. The appliances and cookware are above average of most rentals, along with the items provided in terms of linens, and other necessities. You truly only need to pack your clothes and pick up some groceries on your way to the cottage and you are set for a great stay. Donna and Bill, Thank you for a wonderful stay. We look forward to staying with you again soon. Derek

The area is great for a family and this house is too. We have only great memories of the area and facilities. Unfortunately, as of 7/26/2010 the house has a ROACH problem, so before you book be sure to have the owner prove that the issue has been corrected. Otherwise, you may find yourself chasing down the little suckers the same way we did.

Just got back from Harker's Island - first trip there. We stayed at this place for 3 nights. They call it the Salt Marsh. If I could describe it in one word I would say it was PERFECT. A great place for a small family or maybe a couple (or 2!) wanting to get away to a quiet place for some great fishing. There is a public boat ramp just a stone's throw away, and a place to dock your boat on the premises. We will definitely go back there and highly recommend it.
