** This property did have some damage from Hurricane Florence, but everything is back to how it was. I was indeed blessed to be able to keep moving forward. She is anxiously awaiting new and old visitors!**
The cottage is located in a small village just across the Neuse River from downtown New Bern. Just down the street is the new Bridgetown Harbor Marina. This cozy home was built in the 1950's and has been updated with all modern amenities. It has been decorated in a 'shabby chic' beach theme. You can enjoy a sun porch with a Nags Head hammock porch swing and rocking chairs. Perfect for relaxing, reading a good book or listening to music.
