About the property

3 bedroom, 2.5 bath house on the water that sleeps 8

BeaufortHouse is our 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath vacation home on North River with 2 double beds, 1 queen bed and 2 twin beds. Located on the water about 3 miles from town in a quiet neighborhood, it's close enough to enjoy what beautiful Beaufort has to offer. The eat-in kitchen seats 4 and the dining room seats 8-10. Curl up in the recliner in the living room to enjoy a book, away from the gang, or sit on the screened porch or deck and enjoy the waterfowl and perhaps even dolphin playing in North River. Bring your lawn games to enjoy, or take a stroll through the neighborhood. Lots of fun things to do in the area and when you tire, come back to a comfortable home, enjoy an outdoor shower, serve yourself a cool drink, put on some music and prop up your feet. BeaufortHouse is a great place to make memories!

About Kathy King

We live near Charlotte, NC on the waters of Lake Norman and are blessed to have two vacation homes - "BeaufortHouse" in Beaufort, NC and "KingsView" in Blowing Rock, NC. As our children grew up and moved away, we began offering both houses to vacationers

so others could enjoy them.

Kathy King purchased this house in 1980

Why Kathy King chose Central Coast

My husband and I travelled up and down the coast of the two Carolinas for years looking for just the right town. When we spent our first weekend in Beaufort, we knew that we had found our ideal place to have a vacation home. The town is charming and the locals are very friendly. We love the fresh seafood and the many small coastal villages nearby. Beaufort is located about an hour from the New Bern airport which has flights connecting to Raleigh and Charlotte.

If you are looking for a place to stay that feels more like a home rather than some cookie cutter condo, look no further. The large, eat-in kitchen is equiped with just about anything that a cook could want. But, what we love most are the spectacular sunrises over the waters of North River.

What makes this house unique

Private home primed for relaxation. With the gorgeous views and enough room to have our family together for the weekend or a couple of weeks, it's simply our place to make our memories.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to thank you for sharing your home and tell you how much we enjoyed our stay. Your location was perfect for us as we were traveling the area from Cedar Island to Merrimon to Harkers Island with our realtor some of the time. Such a central location for house hunting and yet wth a quiet setting and beautiful view!! Of course, not without drama as my son cut his foot on an oyster shell on our 3rd day there after all of your warnings. But he had recently had a tetanus shot and we quickly doctored the cuts and now they look quite good. Anyway it was hard to leave and I wish that we could have stayed longer. Maybe next time we will stay longer than one week and I would love to rent with you again (even though our realtor was put off that we didn't rent from her) if you will have us. Thank you again and please feel free to email me anytime if the status of your rental changes.

An absolutely lovely home with all the amenities - plus a screened-in porch

  • 5 of 5

This home is extremely spacious, and has everything a person could need. I would recommend it for large families, as well as for those who just like to sit around and enjoy the scenery.

overall very happy

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here! It has plenty of room, a beautiful view, and a great location close to Beaufort and many other attractions. We ate several times at No Name Pizza just down the road. The food was great and even my pickiest eater could find something she liked--the cheese fries! My only complaints/suggestions would be to provide stepping stones to the side garage door. We found that we were tracking a lot of cut grass into the kitchen each time we came in. Also, the house was very short on paper products! We had no toilet paper in the master bath, only about a half dozen paper towels left on the roll in the kitchen, and no box of tissues anywhere. None of this would keep me from renting this place again. Just small inconveniences.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you were inconvenienced by the lack of paper goods. There should have been toilet tissue in each bathroom but we do not furnish additional rolls or boxes of tissues. When guests ask what to bring I do remind them to bring paper goods. I will consider having extra rolls of tissue for my guest. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your review.

Upon arrival we were very happy with the cleanliness of this sweet home on the river. We were only there for a weekend and we were busy during our stay however it was nice to come back to an inviting space after a long day! The porch was lovely and the home was well equipped and met everyone's needs. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home in Beaufort! The Shackelford Family
