Perfect Place to Experience Beaufort

  • 5 of 5

Affordable, good space for family/group of friends. We had a great trip and used the Cosson's space to rest and recoup after a fun day of exploring Beaufort. Great upstairs porch too!

Amazing House for a Family

  • 4 of 5

We really had such a great time in this home. Its great for a family. The only issues were there is no wifi/internet and cable. We feel you need to have 1 of these things. They did make it clear about the cable but not wifi. Red Box was an option but they were very limited on what they had.

But we will definitely stay again when we visit. Thanks again.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

If you're looking for a nice place to stay, close to downtown and a boat ramp, this is the house.

The water pressure in the showers was outstanding!

Cozy, spacious, and perfect for a fishing trip!

Beaufort was named the No.5 Best Small Town in Southern Living Magazine this year and it's easy to see why! There are so many things that are easy to explore from our location.

Downtown Beaufort is a must visit, whether you rent a bike from Beaufort Bicycle or take the scenic walk along Taylor's Creek you won't be disappointed. We are are only a mile and a half walk from downtown. Along the way you can even see wild horses on Carrot Island! Once in town, you can walk along the boardwalk, shop and gaze at the yachts, have a drink at Backstreet Pub or grab a bite to eat on the water at Finz Grill. The best ice cream is found at The General Store!

There are also a number of ways to have an adventure while staying in Beaufort, you can rent a kayak from Beaufort Paddle and explore the local waterways yourself or hop on a catamaran with Lookout Cruises and set sail. Another easy way to enjoy the area with the whole family is by booking a trip with Island Express Ferry Service, they will take you to the scenic Shackleford Banks to find amazing shells and see the infamous wild horses or further to Cape Lookout for the day to explore the lighthouse and surrounding beaches.

If you want to head to the nearest beach for a day of fun in the sun, Atlantic Beach is a family friendly lifeguarded beach just located over the bridge past Morehead City. There are also a number of places to book a deep sea charter in Morehead City or even go diving. On your way home be sure to have dinner at Ruddy Duck along the waterfront or try El's Drive In for a local shrimp burger.
