About Allison Layden

We are a family of 5, raising 3 children. Floyd grew up in Belvidere and I (Allison) was born in GA. We were married in 2000 and cleared the lot given to us by Floyds Father. We put a home on the 2 acre piece. We built the cottage in the side yard for family when they travel here to visit and then decided to share it with guests.

We enjoyed building it and look forward to sharing it with others! All wood. Not one square inch of drywall. Wood cathedral ceilings, walls and floor are wood, cork, and laminate. No carpet here for allergies to stir up!

Why Allison Layden chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

Quiet, Secluded in the trees, safe for kids and family! Better than crowded hotels and bed and breakfasts where you can't control the temperature in your room.

We are the owners and we will be here if you need anything, not states away. No Phones to bother you while on vacation. Bring your cell phone! We will not bother you, but we are here if you need us.

What makes this cottage unique

Sit on the front porch and read a book in our Nags Head Hammock Swing! Walk the wooded trail behind the cottage. Take a dip in the saltwater pool. Go a half a mile to our country style restaraunt with nice gift shop inside a historic home. They serve breakfast, lunch, supper and have hot tea times. Visit the country store as well, where they still have hoop cheese and cut fresh meat to order! (Featured in OUR STATE Magazine) Enjoy some NC caught seafood that we catch OURSELVES! We are set back in time! No RUSH HERE! Just RELAX!!! Isn't that what vacation means? Give us a try!

Cute Country Cabin Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was like none I have her stayed in. It is well kept and clean. I loved the craftmanship of it. The bathroom picture didn't do it any just of how big and beautiful it is. I love how private it is. It is definitely a place to stay if you want a nice relaxing secluded stay. This cabin is a HGTV fantic's dream like we are. Myself, husband and baby girl loved our stay. Thank you Layden's!

This the most well kept and most cleaned cottage that we have rented until now

  • 5 of 5

On top of that the owners were very responsive to all our requests and went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant. We are extremely grateful for their generosity, especially when they give us the opportunity to taste the blue crabs and fresh shrimps freshly caught. And of course the 12 feet salt water swimming pool is simply amazing not mentioning the privacy and the serenity that surround the cottage. A cottage very highly recommended which the owners have meticulously kept clean and furnished with all necessary amenities. Thank you Alison and family !!! - From Parvaize and family from Toronto :)

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a "home base" as we traveled all around the Outer Banks area. This lovely home had everything! The beds were comfortable, the home was clean and fresh, the décor was inviting, and it had a washer and dryer! Although the owners live right next door we had our privacy, and it was very quiet and away from traffic noise. So glad we were able to stay the weekend at this cozy country cottage!

Great little country side getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We came here to spend Father's Day weekend. The cottage is adorable. Make sure you bring food with you. Like other's have said, do your grocery shopping before you get here and you'll be happy as a clam. Even though the owners live very close to the house, they afforded us 100% privacy. I very much appreciated that, since we sort of wanted to get away "from it all". Great little place for families with kids. My daughter enjoyed the playground and the chickens! The pool was also wonderful! We visited Edenton while here. I would definitely come here again.

Lovely rural retreat near the Inner Banks

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage to stay in during the annual NC Cycle Coastal Ride in Edenton, about 25 minutes away. There where two couples and it worked great for us. It was super clean, very attractive, and had everything we needed to cook dinner and breakfast. The jacuzzi was great! The owner was very good about communicating and about accommodating our multiple cars, bikes and schedules. I would highly recommend this property.

Car: recommended

We live in the small town of Belvidere. It is about 20 minutes from Edenton, 20 minutes from Elizabeth City and about 1 hour and 15 minutes from the Outer Banks Beaches!

We are in the quiet country and have our own post office, country store, boat ramp, and Country Restaraunt that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, all within a mile. NC Barbeque, steaks, chicken.....ect....

We are commercial fisherman as well, so due to season, we can bring home FRESH fish, crabs, oysters and shrimp! All LOCALLY Caught!! (Prices depend on market value). You can cook them up in your full kitchen or use our grill. We can also provide you with fresh laid eggs from our hens for your morning breakfast (when laying). Sight see in Historic Edenton, See the oldest house in NC. The Newbold White House, Shop in Elizabeth city, go to museums, or just play in the water, and most of all, RELAX!!!! Day trips to the Outer Banks Beaches are a great getaway too! Belvidere is a laid back country town that if you blink, you will miss it! Home and burial place of Wolfman Jack, Radio Celebrity (half-mile from cottage) and one town over which is Hertford, is hometown to the famous baseball player, Jimmy (Catfish) Hunter. No loud cities or crowded beaches. Just your little cottage back in the pines. Come Relax!!!

(Cottage is located in our side yard but we promise we won't be knocking on your front door! You have full use of the front yard and play set for kids 2-10. There is also a box with balls and items for playing in yard or the basketball goal. Take a dip in the salt water pool. We live on 2 Acres surrounded by trees.)
