Property description

Unique waterfront cottage provides comfort and privacy amid the beauty of nature. Ideal for boating, kayaking, fishing and relaxing getaways. Half-hour from Washington, NC. Located between Bath and Belhaven. The Swan Quarter ferry to Ocracoke is a 40 minute drive away.

The Boathouse was built in 1985--originally used as a space to refurbish and build sailboats. It is a wonderfully simple and comfortable structure: 600 sq. ft of interior quarters are nestled inside the 2400 sq. ft. barn that is an outside living and working space.

Boaters of all kinds will enjoy the easy put in, safe harbor and direct access to the waters of North Creek,
the Pamlico River and Sound, and the Intracoastal Waterway. Put your boat over on the 12’ boat ramp at Potter’s Marina, less than 300 yards from the cottage, and secure it in our boat slip for the weekend or week.

1.4 acre private wooded lot with 200’ bulkhead and 20’ x 30’ boat slip. Exceptional views of North Creek to the east and the Pamlico River to the South. Dock with fish cleaning table, water and power. Three kayaks for use with paddles and life vests.

Ideal for fishing, boating, birding--very peaceful with spectacular waterviews. Dolphins swim right past the house!

Explore Bath (oldest town in NC), Belhaven's lovely waterfront (don't miss the Belhaven Museum), Washington's lively downtown and riverwalk (NC Estuarium), take the free ferry to Aurora's Fossil Museum or the longer Swan Quarter ferry to Ocracoke.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are nature lovers. We love exploring North Creek and the Pamlico River, tracking the dolphins, fishing for flounder, crabbing from the dock, or just relaxing in a rocking chair on the screened porch with a good book.

Why the Owner Chose Bath, NC, USA:
The Bath/Belhaven area is water, water everywhere! We fell in love with this unique part of NC that most people have no idea exists. Off the beaten path, beautiful landscapes and waterviews, downhome, friendly people.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Life slows down when you stay at the Boathouse. Quiet, peaceful simplicity. Great way to let go of the daily grind and stresses. Explore the wonderful world of eastern North Carolina!
