Property description

Rustic Waterfront Cottage with View, Dock & Beach on Harkers Island, NC.

This family cottage has hardwood floors, ocean breezes, a bedroom with double bed, a pleasant sleeping alcove with two single beds, full bath, well furnished kitchen, a large deck overlooking the water, and a private dock. We're just a two-minute walk to the Core Sound Heritage Museum and the National Seashore headquarters, where you also catch the ferry to Cape Lookout and the barrier islands across Core Sound.

On the uninhabited barrier islands you can walk for hours along the Atlantic shore, picking up seashells, swimming, bird-watching, fishing, seeing the wild Shackleford Ponies, and climbing the famous Cape Lookout lighthouse. Back at the cottage you can fish off of our dock, explore the quiet island, or just relax on our deck with gorgeous views of the lighthouse and perfect sunsets. The historic town of Beaufort is just 30 minutes away, with fine dining, shopping, antiquing and sightseeing, and waterfront docks lined with boats from all over the world. Visit the Maritime Museum in Beaufort, the Civil War era Fort Macon, or the NC Aquarium. Charter a deep sea fishing boat to the Gulf Stream, go sunfish sailing around Harkers Island, bring your own boat or kayaks, or take the ferry to the Cape. Kayak rentals are available near the bridge onto Harkers Island.

Whatever you do, it will be a wonderful change of pace, and you will love having our simple cottage as your vacation home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1964

About the owner: Owners are three brothers, one a bakery owner, another a college professor, and the third a computer programmer, and our sister, an agricultural restorer in Scotland.

Why the Owner Chose Harkers Island, NC, USA:
The house was built by our parents in the 1960s, having found Harkers Island off the beaten path, authentic, and in very beautiful maritime surroundings. We have vacationed here ever since, with our children growing up with sand, salt and sunshine, and still coming back for more...

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Peaceful, varied marine ecosystems, interesting local history and culture, great fresh seafood, spending lots of time on the water and at the beaches, sandbars and lagoons, watching the sun set over the water. Our typical day: breakfast on the deck overlooking the water, taking the boat to Cape Lookout or Shackleford, walking, swimming and collecting shells on the beach, getting some fish for dinner, a glass of wine on the deck, watching the sunset and the lighthouse flash across the waters at night...
