About the Property

One Bedroom - 1 1/2 Baths - Two Story House W/ Porches Up & Down

Our fully renovated vintage cottage is located on Front Street and offers a large & very comfortable living and dining room area. The kitchen is fully equipped for your convenience. Laundry Room w/ stackable washer and dryer and ½ bath are also located on the first floor.

A quiet bedroom with a queen size bed is located on the second floor w/ full bath.

The second floor porch has wonderful water views. Live oak trees house many birds and envelope the area making the porch feel like a tree house. A very private and wonderful place to read, relax, reflect.

This cottage has been renovated to accommodate two guests.

It is a quick drive by car or bike ride, less than one mile, from our house to the Front Street Historic District which offers a selection of wonderful restaurants & bars, pool hall, museums, waterfront boardwalk with boats anchored from places unknown, coffee shops, wine bar, wonderful relaxed shopping, ferries to take you to the barrier islands and Cape Lookout.

Walking through the shaded streets brings you to the past with beautiful houses, some dating back 250 years or more. Houses owned by ship captains, merchants, fishermen & pirates. And let’s not forget the old Beaufort Burying Ground, one of the oldest cemeteries in North Carolina. It is not surprising that Beaufort, NC - has been voted the coolest small town in the United States.

Walking through the shaded streets will bring you to the past with beautiful houses, some dating back 250 years or more. Houses owned by ship captains, merchants, fishermen & pirates. And let’s not forget the Old Beaufort Burying Ground, one of the oldest cemeteries in North Carolina. It is not surprising that Beaufort, NC - was recently voted the coolest small town in the United States.

Virginia & Bob lived in the Washington, DC area for many years. In 1994 they moved to Atlantic Beach as they both love the sun, sand and ocean.

Two years later they purchased a piece of land in Beaufort located on Front Street. The property included a deep water dock on Taylors Creek. The property also included a derelict one bedroom cottage, a barn and enough land to build a house. After building the family home, Virginia & Bob moved to Beaufort. The cottage was then beautifully renovated with an eye to comfort. Family, friends, and friends of friends have stayed at the cottage. Two couples have stayed at the cottage for their honeymoon. It is a great retreat from everyday life for those who come. The family has decided it is now time to offer the cottage to others so that they may find the wonderful experiences available in this area.

Beaufort By the Sea is a magic village. Come on down and watch the banker ponies run free on the islands that protect where we live and entices visitors to explore. Sunset sailing and early morning dolphin watch by boat are services offered right down the street.
