About the property

6 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom Cottage

Generations of a farming family have enjoyed this summer retreat for all ages. Featuring 6 full bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, everyone is comfortable. Two separate living/TV areas make it nice when the kids want to watch their own video. A large dining area offers room for family meals and the huge private oceanfront deck offers the finest views on the beach, from rocking under the covered porch or lounging in the sun catching rays. An extra refrigerator in the downstairs is handy for keeping fresh vegetables or seafood from the local farmer's and fish markets. Gas and charcoal grills are available as well as beach chairs. Plenty of parking and a quiet, family neighborhood, but you can walk to some restaurants or bars if you wish. Safe for the family - you will want to return every year.

About Andy Moye

Wonderful cottage, shared for generations by an eastern NC farming family. This the place to retreat and play board games with the kids, float in the ocean, build a sandcastle, play a few rounds of golf, go for a long walk on the miles of beach, take in the historic sites or aquarium or enjoy a gourmet meal. You can do it all or you can relax in the hammock and do nothing. With wireless internet, you can conduct business in your bathing suit!

Why Andy Moye chose Atlantic Beach

This is the best stretch of beach - beautiful dunes shield the private deck. The beach is wide and the sand is perfect for walking or shelling. We are in a quiet family area but close enough to walk to some shops, restaurants, and bars if you wish. You will quickly see we have the best deck on the beach, offering both shaded and open areas and enough room to share in the fun. There is a reason why everyone comes to our house to watch the July 4th fireworks - best deck on the beach!

What makes this cottage unique

Bedrooms are quiet and closed off for privacy, yet three large living/den areas for gathering family or friends. Televisions available in almost every room for those who want them. Wireless internet and desktop computer available. Two full size refrigerators and large capacity washer and dryer. Basement showers or outside shower for washing off sand directly from the beach. Plenty of parking.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks for reminding us to review... it was great. Our kids spent hours on the huge dunes, and it was nice to be able to watch them from the deck. I loved the quiet "secret hammock" under the porch! The bedrooms had personality and everything was in great working order. Thanks for working with us on the odd schedule. Our group plans another reunion next year - hopefully at your house again.

Wonderful cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

We came for a week in June after our children got out of school and had a delightful stay at High Cotton Cottage. We LOVED the large deck- it was truly like having another living area. But we also enjoyed having the separate living area for the kids to have to watch movies on our one rainy day. The bedrooms are spacious! We felt so welcomed in this family cottage. We appreciated being able to walk right down to the beach right in front of our cottage. My husband enjoyed his daily nap in the hammock under the porch- nice get away. We visited the aquarium one day which is not far and had a great time exploring the Beaufort waterfront shops and restaurants. We will DEFINTELY return next summer.

Wonderful vacation cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, our grown sons and their families and some family from Illinois enjoyed a fabulous week at High Cotton Cottage. The home offers beautiful views, comfortable beds and furniture. We are already planning our return trip next year. We especially loved the huge deck with the rockers, grill and exceptional ocean breezes. Life doesn't get any better!
