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.

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.
Michael purchased this cottage in 2005
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.
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!
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our days at the boat house. The whole place is quite relaxing. We caught catfish, long nose gar and blue crab right of the dock. The house inside the boat shed was comfortable, clean and cozy. Shopping and eating in Washington in a must. If you are looking for a quite, relaxing, slow paced getaway then the boathouse is for you.
My wife and I (both retired) were looking for a few quiet days away. The Boathouse fit the bill perfectly. The set-up was unusual -- a comfortable cottage hidden inside a boathouse -- and the setting was wonderful. That is, secluded waterfront, easy access to the water, birdlife, etc. etc. We didn't want to do anything besides sleep, eat, read, and relax. But there's plenty to do if you're so inclined. A final note -- the interior of the cottage is very well done, from the artwork to the furniture to the way things are organized.
Loved the views, the dock, the ping-pong, the bed, the screened porch, the peace and quiet! We tried fishing, but too windy and cool when we were there...saw blue crab, carp, snakes in water, lots of birds, etc. Such a unique place to stay!
This is a great place for people that like remote and quiet areas and the owner (Michael) is a man with very high integrity.
This was our second stay at The Boathouse. We really like the comfortable king size bed, the view, the Wi-Fi, the screened in back porch, kayaking, and playing ping pong. Everything is here to make meals and keep even older kids from being bored.
Some things to do away from the property include visit the NC Estuarium. They also offer free riverboat rides if you have reservations. We learned about crabbing on the Pamlico. My son proceeded to catch one blue crab on North Creek right behind the house. We also took the ferry to Ocracoke and drove on the beach. We took a free ferry to Aurora and visited the Aurora Fossil museum. There you can dig outside for fossils. We found hundreds of shark teeth. Be prepared to stay a long time because it's addictive. From Aurora, you can drive to the free Minesottt beach ferry and take it to Cherry Point. From there you can drive to Atlantic Beach. The ferry rides are relaxing and something to do in itself. Goose Creek State Park is also a nice park with a swimming area that we enjoyed. Thank you for sharing your Boathouse with our family again.
