The Space

----------------------

Cottage is a former officers quarters moved from Goldsboro, NC in late 1940s. Originally 2BR, Uncle Jimmy added "Miss Minnie's Room" in the 'early '60s. Its been updated with new appliances and ceilings in early 2000s. Original floors, "open cornered" fireplace and knotty pine paneling.

The Neighborhood

------------------------------

Directly @ Marker#17 on Bogue Sound along the Southern Outer Banks (SOBX) of North Carolina. Would be great for ICW Cruisers wanting to stop over for a couple nights northbound or southbound. My dock has a side berth with ~4' draft. Boat basin too. Neighborhood is called "HoHo Village" (seriously)...for the 2 Hodge brothers, who developed it in late 1940s.

Getting Around

-------------------------

Golf cart rental+delivery @ ~$20/day. Boat Rental too. Additional taxi, etc. info on fridge in cottage. Easy walking distance (1/2 mile) to grocery store, Dollar General and a quickie mart.

Why Newport, NC, USA (City):
This was originally an officers quarters for the Army Air Corps in Goldsboro during WW2. My Great Uncle Jimmy moved it here by barge and truck in the late 1940s. Passed down through my family through the years.
