About Martin or Jill Whalen

We are Jill and Marty Whalen. We currently live in Colorado where Marty is from. Jill was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Jill teaches elementary school and Marty is a building and electrical contractor.

Martin or Jill Whalen purchased this house in 2012

Why Martin or Jill Whalen chose New Bern

We bought Anchors Away after searching up and down the coast for a waterfront home close to the ocean yet secluded enough to avoid crowds.We have vacationed in New Bern for many years and are entranced by it's unique blend of southern charm, natural wonder, and historical significance.

What makes this house unique

We fell hard for Anchors Away the moment we opened the front door and could see boats from the entryway. In this busy world there is serenity, comfort, and calm that comes from slowing down, unwinding, and enjoying the water.

Beautiful home, peaceful setting.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, comfortable home in a lovely and peaceful setting. All the rooms are spacious and well-appointed. The beds are comfy, and the showers are great! We had a problem with the wifi that wasn't able to be resolved while we were there, but otherwise, we were quite happy with our home away from home. Marty and Jill were great hosts. We very much enjoyed our stay!

Peaceful, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We loved all the space, the porches and the view. The owners were very responsive and helpful. They made sure all our needs were met, answered all our emails and calls. They are excellent hosts. The house is very spacious, we had kids with us and they had plenty of room to play and explore. The only improvement we would suggest is some new pillows for the bedrooms.

Amazing Property!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property to visit my Son who is Stationed at Cherry Point. We spent most of our time fishing catching a variety of large catfish and other species from the dock and the canoe/kayaks were great to have! Very quiet with a private backyard. Even room to park a car in the garage, which I did. The owners are super nice, thanks for sharing your home with us we had a blast and I'll never forget my time spent there!! Anchors Away!!

Beautiful setting for relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

Looking for a beautiful, serene setting? This property has just what you need for a relaxing time away from home. Everything is just as advertised, only prettier! It is clean and well kept, and the owners include a lot of extras to make your stay more enjoyable. I am hoping to make another trip here in the future, but this time I will leave the demanding grandchildren at home!

River Bend is a picturesque community just outside New Bern, North Carolina. It is adjacent to the Trent River and the Croatan National Forest. Visitors can boat, fish, swim, hike, bike, golf, or just relax in style.

Historic New Bern just celebrated their three hundredth year. Along with Civil War history the town offers great restaurants, theater, live music, southern charm, and much more!
