About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

I renovated this over 200 year-old property with much care over the last fifteen years, maintaining the original charm while bringing it up-to- date with modern amenities, and with the original heart pine flooring. The house itself is extremely relaxing to be in, with three porches, but the areas of Shackleford Banks and Cape Lookout, both national parks, are the real draw, whether you're looking for excellent fishing, shelling, secluded beaches, white sand, wild horses, a plethora of wildlife, all sorts of birds, museums, nearby access to deep-sea fishing charters, ten-minute ferries to the islands, round trip $15 ... departing every half hour. Beaufort has wonderful restaurants, park your car or boat and experience local fare or world-class meals. If you bring a boat, there's a neighborhood boat ramp about two hundred yards from the property, or use the free NC boat ramp just before the Harkers Island Bridge, only about a half mile away, and with plenty of parking for your vehicle and trailer. This is immediate access to a wonderful fishing area, whether you're going for mackerel or drum, flounder or bluefish. I've even caught octopus and eel. This is really one of the best fishing areas around, but there are so many other things to do as well, both for kids and adults. It's my favorite spot in the world, I don't think there's any place as relaxing on earth as the Cape Lookout National Seashore area.
I've never had any problems with damage or theft, so I don't require additional deposits for these, unless your name is Anmol Patar, who stole towels, pillows, and sofa cushions from the house. If your name IS Anmol Patar, there is a $50k damage deposit, per day....

Shackleford Banks and Cape Lookout are Outer Banks Islands, both very close, and both accessible via numerous ferries from Harkers Island, a five to ten minute drive and approximately a ten minute boat ride. Shelling and fishing on these National Park islands is exceptional as there are no houses or condos allowed. They are both pristine islands. Only wildlife, including wild horses, inhabit these islands. A wonderful area to visit, but not if you want wall to wall people on every inch of the beach. I'd be surprised if you saw anyone at all but your family and wild horses on these National Park beaches. Truly exceptional beaches, the type you can normally only dream about visiting.
