Why The Owner chose Minnesott Beach

First and foremost, welcome to my newly renovated little slice of heaven.

Call My Bluff was built in 1947 and was originally a fish camp. Fishermen came to relax for a week or weekend of fishing and preparing and eating their catch. If you look above the bed in the bedroom, you can see where the stove pipe was vented through the top of the cottage to heat the fishermen. Up until the winter of 2014, the back porch was screened-in exposing the bathroom to the elements. Even though this was the quaint original structure, there were some things that needed to be modified to make this a cottage comfortable for all seasons.

Enjoy the new outdoor shower, private porch with new case windows, insulation and new windows throughout, steps to the 70’ dock below, upgraded furniture, kitchen cookware and flatware, new steps and handrails to the roadside entrance, new shady umbrella for the dining table on the riverside deck and a 32” smart TV with cable and wireless internet.

Bring your book, a fishing pole and some summer beverages, and you should be equipped for your vacation getaway at Call My Bluff Cottage on the Neuse River at Minnesott Beach, North Carolina. If you are single and need a retreat or if you are a couple seeking a romantic getaway, this is for you! For small families, it is a cozy spot if you love the river and relaxing on the screened-in porch, set for privacy and relaxation. Fishermen welcome. No pets please.

The cottage rents for $825 per week, $325 per weekend, and $100 for each additional night. The cottage will accommodate 4. Go to vrbo to view Call My Bluff. Enter the #359773. If you would like to see the larger cottage next to Call My Bluff, go to vrbo and enter the # 245297 to view Journey’s End Cottage which accommodates 8.

First time to Minnesott Beach for vacation. The cottage is amazing...thoughtfully appointed...fantastic amenities (porch with river views, outdoor shower, kayaks, etc.). Neuse River breezes were fantastic, did not use A/C the entire time. Can't say enough good things. Thank you Terry!

Perfect setting on the Neuse

  • 5 of 5

Call My Bluff was the ideal location for our fall vacation! We enjoyed kayaking on the river, and my husband had good luck fishing right off the dock. The cottage is very close to the Minnesott Beach-Cherry Branch ferry. We rode it a couple of times since we explored the Croatan National Forest on the other side of the river. The ferry is free and only a 20 minute ride. We enjoyed magnificent sunsets all four evenings. Looking forward to returning to the cottage again!

Quaint, cozy cottage on the river

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the cottage for 3 night in mid October. It was small but very comfortable and had all the necessities. The galley kitchen had everything we needed for making breakfast and dinner and there was a small table to eat at. TV in the sitting area with cable/satellite and the bed was very comfortable. The screened in porch at the back of the cottage overlooking the river was the highlight. That's where we spent the majority of our time. The sunsets are magnificent and there were canoes and crab traps available for our use. Our first night there was very warm outside. We turned of the a/c that was running when we got there and opened all the windows which provided a great breeze throughout. The temperature had dropped quite a bit by the 3rd night and we had to pull out the space heater to take the chill off.

Terry was very responsive and kept in touch to make sure we had everything we needed. I would not hesitate to stay at the cottage again...it was wonderful!
