About the property

Cottage, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Supreme location on the ocean. Sunrises, sunsets, sandcastles --this area of Atlantic Beach is second to none for relaxing on the Crystal Coast. Stroll down to Fort Macon State Park. Watch sea gulls trail boats seeking Spanish mackerel just off the shore OR walk over to the marinas and catch a ride!

This classic beach cottage has been cherished by close friends and relatives of the same family for four decades. Lots of unforgotten memories have been made here. Enjoy ping-pong in the game room, count the boats on the water from the kitchen table or just take it slow on the expansive deck. This is a dynamite place for nice folks to get away from it all.

No smoking, please!

Great location and plenty of room- walk everywher you need

  • 5 of 5

Great location and within walking distance to a number of places. Had dinner at Island Grill, Amos Mosquito's and The Crab Claw and walked to all three. Very close to the bridge in getting off the island to get groceries or visit Morehead City or Beaufort, NC and positioned perfectly between the pier and the boardwalk. Located on a small quite street. The house has plenty of room and was perfect for our group. We would definitely rent it again.

The best got better!

  • 5 of 5

We thought Miss Grace was the best and then we went this spring and found it brightened and refurbished in many gracious ways. The kitchen has new improvements and the bed coverings and living area walls are all brightened. Of course the view, porch and location remain perfect. My son ran his first marathon at Emerald Isle. Back at the cottage, he and his wife were able to walk over to the Island Grill to eat . My grands were happy as clams. In addition they went to the aquarium, Beaufort and Fort Macon. When we were leaving, my husband said "I love this place!"

Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

What had such a great week at Miss Grace! The layout was perfect for our family of 6 adults and four children. The adults had their space upstairs and the kids had the whole downstairs to themselves. You truly are just steps from the ocean and the view from the deck is beautiful. We spent every night out there enjoying a cocktail while listening to the waves. The neighbors treated us like family, even treating us to a homemade pie from one of the local markets. The location couldn't have been more perfect with several great restaurants within walking distance. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We hope to get back there again next year!

Atlantic Beach is the closest Bogue Banks settlement to Shackleford and the Cape Lookout National Seashore. The two islands are separted only by Beaufort Inlet. The eastern most end of the island features Fort Macon State Park, a well-preserved example of a bunker-style, Confederate post- taken by Union troops in 1862. Beaufort Inlet--known also for having swallowed Black Beard's flagship, the Queen Anne's Revenge, in the early 16th century-- serves recreation and commercial fishermen, alike, as well as cargo tankers accessing the NC state port of Morehead City. The region is widely recognized as the southernmost section of North Carolina's pristine Outer Banks.

Other Activities: ping-pong and swings for children; mature dunes for hide-n-seek games
