  • Great place to stay

    "My wife and I have stayed at this house 2 years in a row. We love Donna and love going to Harkers as often as we can. The place is ALWAYS well stocked with everything you need. Everything is very clean and tidy from the kitchen to the bathroom. We have always done well fishing and the dock location is perfect from the boat ramp. It is tucked away for great privacy and it is very quiet. We do recommend this place to anyone thinking of going to Harkers island."

  • A very pleasant place!

    "We spent six months at Rosie’s Retreat while our house was being built. Moving here from Cleveland Ohio we weren’t familiar with the area, but we called Clay and he gave us directions on the phone as if we were old friends just coming to visit. We moved in to “Rosie’s” and felt immediately at home. Our favorite feature was the screened porch overlooking the golf course where we watched the squirrels and birds every morning. The second best feature was the very comfortable bed in the master suite. That certainly helped the six months go by smoothly! During the six months, there were of course a few minor repairs needed as with any home. Kathy and Clay responded immediately and took care of every issue, from a beautiful bathroom remodel to a new Mr. Coffee maker. We felt so comfortable with them we could’ve knocked on their door to borrow a cup of sugar. They treated us like friends, not renters. And speaking of sugar…the kitchen is large and wonderful for cooking. Everything we needed was there, with plenty of serving ware for entertaining a crowd. All the basics were included for cooking, cleanup, laundry, etc. The kitchen, bathrooms and linen closets were well stocked. And the propane grill was always fueled and ready to go. When a storm hit during July and the power went out in the entire area, Clay was over immediately ready to run an extension line to connect us to their generator. The River Bend community is close to stores, restaurants, and not far from the beach. It’s a quiet community where we enjoyed long walks day or night and walks to the nearby park, often stopping along the way to chat with other neighbors. We also rode the bikes that are provided for guests of Rosie’s Retreat, but amazingly didn’t make use of the golf clubs they also provide. Rosie’s Retreat is very comfortable and accessible, but the Best part is how easily the hosts Clay and Kathy Hodge welcome their guests in like family."

  • Family trip to visit our son at Cherry Point

    "We had a great week at the River House. My daughter (7) as well as my son and his buddy had plenty to do and plenty of room to do it. The house and yard were spacious. We spent most afternoons on the dock fishing and the evenings were spent playing pool. By far better than being cooped-up in a hotel room! My son also enjoyed that I could cook some of his favorite meals and my daughter was happy she could still watch her morning cartoons (Direct TV). The location is great; very peaceful but not far from town. Thanks Jerry - we will be contacting you next time we make the trip."

  • Great Family Place!

    "This home was a great location to the beach, such easy access. The home was very clean and worked perfect for our family of four. The kids loved the bunk beds! The owners were very easy to work with and responded quickly to any questions. Great location to everything on Emerald Isle and surrounding areas!"
