Property description

Perched on a bluff overlooking the Neuse River, nestled among ancient oaks and pines –you'll discover the magic of Journey's End. Conveniently located between Camps Seagull and Seafarer, the cottage is only 10 minutes away from Oriental, the sailing capitol of North Carolina. A free ferry ride across the Neuse and a short drive will take you to Beaufort, Morehead City, and the world-renowned beaches of the Crystal Coast. Historic New Bern is just up the river, and the tri-county area has an abundance of restaurants – from Mom'n'Pop shrimpburgers to 4-star International Cuisine. Journey’s End features a knotty-pine interior with three bedrooms, a large open living space, a custom built outside shower, and a fully-stocked kitchen. A sleeping porch with expansive river views and continuous breezes will be the perfect beginning to your Journey's End. Cottage comfortably accommodates eight, and rents from Saturday to Saturday. Long-term renting available. Keywords: House
