The house had all the convenience of being at home. Chris the owner was awesome! The fishing on the dock was a great spot for fishing. My wife and I are planning to rent this location at least a week or so once a year. Highly recommended!

Absolutely Loved it Here!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We love it here. The house is nice and cozy with a huge kitchen and deck. There are no close by neighbors so it's nice and quiet. The outside fireplace is more amazing than the pictures show. The dock is huge and the fishing and crabbing was excellent. We actually rode out Hurricane Arthur here. There is a free ferry across the river only 10 minutes from the house allowing for quick access to Morehead City and Atlantic Beach. Chris is the best vacation property owner that I have ever had the pleasure to rent from. You having a great stay is obviously his primary concern. I look forward to staying here again. Thank you Chris!

Owner's Response: Congratulations on celebrating 25 years of marriage! We are so glad that our home was part of your celebration. Obviously I am partial, but the fireplace is amazing. I could sit in front of it all night and Chris could sit on the dock and fish all night. We look forward to being a part of your future vacations.

Great for Relaxation and Fishing

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at this rental several times over the past few years. We will not even consider another vacation rental home in Oriental due to the great experience from dealing with the owner and the stay at the house. It is relaxing, quiet, good fishing and all you need to take is yourselves. Everything you need is there. Always a great time with the family.

Wonderful Girls's Weekend at this waterfront retreat

  • 5 of 5

5 moms spent a wonderful weekend at this quaint cottage on Dawson's Creek after dropping the kids off at Camp Don Lee for a Methodist youth retreat. The kitchen was very spacious allowing us ample room to prepare meals, while the bedrooms were comfy and nicely decorated with beautiful antique beds. The weather didn't quite cooperate with us, but we did manage to light a fire in the stunning outdoor fireplace and enjoy the view of Dawson's Creek for a little while before the rain set in. The cottage location is a little close to the road, but that only meant that Oriental was a short drive away. We enjoyed the crab cake sandwich at M & M's Cafe and shopping at Nautical Wheelers gift shop before returning to the house to settle in to watch DVDs and prepare a tasty dinner of shrimp scampi. I hope to be able to return with the men in the family so we can enjoy the boat dock and lift for some Fall red drum fishing. The owner was one of the nicest I have ever had the pleasure to rent from and was just great in making sure everything was ready for our stay.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you all had a good time. It is a shame the weather was not better. Hopefully you guys will be able to come back for future stays with your husbands and enjoy all that the area and house has to offer. Thank you for the kind words. Hope the kids have had a ball at camp! Jeanna and Chris Veasey
