Located just 7 miles or 12 minutes from Town Dock in Oriental, NC, this cottage has everything you need to create a peaceful, yet adventure filled vacation! Owls Nest cottage is located in the perfect spot just minutes away from the town of Oriental and just minutes away from Minnesot beach and the Ferry to Newburn or Morehead City. It is strategically located in between all that the North Carolina coast provides.If you have a boat Its just a day trip away from the Outer banks, Orcracoke, Newburn, or Beaufort. The town of Morehead City and Beaufort is just a ferry ride away by car. The fishing is wonderful on Dawson Creek where the water is home to spawning fish, shrimp and crab that can be caught right off your own private dock. The dock is set up for boating and fishing since there is a fabulous concrete dock with covered boat lift and it is set up for canoeing or kayaking with its special launching area. It even has a special lift for your Sea Doo or personal water craft.

The house is set up for relaxing on the very large deck overlooking Dawson creek. It is only a minute or two from the Neuse River by boat and about 30 minutes by boat to the Harbor at Oriental. Adventure awaits! If you want to fish or simply relax on the deck, its perfect!

The unique thing about this house is that it is located on a beautiful waterway and everyone is so friendly. I have never experienced such thoughtful and friendly neighbors. The house is located in a development called Camp Jo Jane and it truly has that feeling. The only difference is that you have a luxurious house with 5 star amenities. You can sit on the deck and see the most beautiful stars that are brighter than anywhere I have ever lived. It is also a very patriotic community and Cherry Point Airforce base is just over the horizon. The summer Sailing camps are very close and just minutes away.

The house is set up on two floors with the top floor having most of the living amenities such as the three bedrooms and two baths. The downstairs is set up for entertaining with a large spacious 2nd kitchen and pool table. It also has a full bath downstairs including a shower, sink and toilet. Its perfect for entertaining!

About owner/property manager

My husband and I have been coming to Oriental NC for 15 years looking for our Paradise on the wide River called the Neuse and the surrounding wide Creeks. We finally found our dream house on Dawson Creek. We have other homes in Blowing Rock NC and love the mountains as well. We love life in smaller more rural communities and have always considered Oriental to be a lot like Blowing Rock in terms of the small town and the friendly people. We love coming here and have made lots of great friends here. I am a designer by trade and have strived to create the most luxurious comfortable home that you can imagine. We believe in comfy beds and furniture, high quality bedding and linens, ultra clean attention to detail.

It is like you go back in time to a simpler, nicer time in America. You can catch fish and shrimp right off the dock or just enjoy the sunset from the outside deck. Its a great place for families or couples. Its a great place for bird watching and there is a humming bird feeder just off the edge of the deck. It is common to see lots of American flags. Fishing is great and we recommend you bring or rent a boat to get the full taste of adventure that is available. You can launch your boat right next door at the community boat ramp and tie up to our personal dock and be out in the Neuse River in 5 minutes. The Boat lift is off limits. The water is not deep enough for large sailboats. Hobie cats or small Carolina schiffs are great for exploring. Drum fishing and shrimp catching with nets are very popular in the Creek. Dawson creek is a spawning ground for fish and shrimp

Even though the fish were not biting we had a large time trying. The kids enjoyed the pool table for which was our go to in between trying to fish. I would so stay again, next time I will book in a little warmer weather. Over all we enjoyed our stay and would do so again.

Other cabins on Dawson rent for a little less but this place is well worth the money. If you are staying on Dawson creek this is the place you need to be. The basement is set up for a fishing trip with the extra kitchen. We only went upstairs to sleep. GREAT HOUSE.

                                                                    I am so glad you stayed with us! We love this beautiful cottage on the water. It is so peaceful and beautiful! I feel like I have gone back in time to a simpler life when I am there with my husband and our neighbors. I am glad you could share it with us.

                                                                    Just so you know we also have several places in the mountains of North Carolina in the Blowing Rock area and I'd love to invite you to stay up there as well. The cottages all have wonderful long range views of the mountains and fire pits overlooking the views.

                                                                    Thank you and have a great day!

                                                                    We had such a wonderful time. One of our best vacation stays by far. The home was so comfortable and feels more like visiting family. There was very little we were lacking and had just about everything we needed. All the neighbors were so friendly and helpful, they made us feel like part of the community. The home was so beautiful and with the view, fishing and pool table to keep us entertained, we barely even watched TV or phone surfed. My wife and son loved it and look forward to staying again in the future (probably a full week next time ).Thanks again!

It truly is a lovely paradise and we really enjoy it. I appreciate so much that you were such nice guests and that you took care of our home. The community is a large part of why we love it there!

                                                                    I look forward to having you back soon.
