About Jud Ready

Jud Ready purchased this cottage in 1949

Why Jud Ready chose Newport

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.

Wonderful trip

  • 5 of 5

For the 8th annual Brothers trip, we chose "A Cottage with a View". This was our second year there and once again, it was great. While not a four star accommodation, it is clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced. The weather (rained every day) did not cooperate, but we were able to get out and do some trolling and picked up several sizable King Mackerel. We will most definitely return to enjoy this jewel "A Cottage with a View".

Cottage with a view, more than delivers.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four just spent four bliss filled days at A Cottage With A View. The retro cottage had such charm we felt swept back in time. The entire area is so quiet and well maintained we were very pleased that this vacation we opted for a very different venue. In the past we would have joined the crawling herds of folks flocking to Nags Head or Myrtle Beach.

But this year we decided to scale it back, financially and with respect to shopping and constantly being on the go. What a great choice. It proved to be our most relaxing vacation to date.

Don't get me wrong, we still had a great time. We visited the beach at Emerald Isle, not in the least crowded, beautiful water. We took in the Aquarium at Pine Knolls. We had a fabulous dinner at Red Fish Grill, in Morehead. We also visited Fort Macon. All these were within 20-30 min away. And also visited several antique shops I n the area. But at the end of each day, our cozy cottage with very current decor and every necessity you might require for putting a meal on the beautiful claw footed table was available. Each bedroom was decorated in calming beach therms and adequately furnished. We plan to make this sweet place an annual vacation spot for years to come!

Relaxing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

A Cottage With a View is an excellent place for relaxing with family and friends. This is our second visit to the cottage and we hope to return again in the future! The cottage is in a quiet residential area with friendly neighbors. The cottage is a great location on the ICW with an awesome dock and easy access to nearby grocery stores, farmers markets (Garner Farms is close), local restaurants, and beaches. Cox Family Restaurant & Sanitary Fish Market are great local restaurants 10-15 minutes drive from the cottage. Oceanfront beaches are not a far drive from the cottage, but we prefer to relax on the large lawn of the cottage, near the water or rocking in the chairs on the porch with the beautiful view. The shallow water (just a few yards from the porch) is great for small children to play and there is a small, private "beach" behind the cottage where the kids can build in the sand and find loads of great shells. The beds in the cottage are very comfy and the recently updated decor is lovely. The kitchen is very well equipped for preparing family meals. In addition to the dining table inside, there is a large table on the porch to enjoy meals with the great view. The cottage is very clean and the management responds quickly to any service requests. The cottage has reliable, high-speed internet access if you need to stay connected during your vacation. We highly recommend Cottage With a View for anyone looking for a relaxing vacation in this area!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Came with 3 fellow graduate students to celebrate the end of the semester. The house had everything; kitchen appliances, beach toys, fishing poles, wifi, laundry. We had a very comfortable stay. The sunsets were awesome. You'll get a bite on your line within in seconds of casting. We saw dolphins off the end of the dock one morning. The back porch is amazing.

There is a convienence store right down the street within walking distance so you don't need to drive if little things come up. It was also a very safe, quiet neighborhood and you could be comfortable walking alone.

The Space


A Cottage with a View is a former WW2 officers quarters moved from what is now Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro, NC in the late 1940s. Originally a 2BR fishing cottage, Uncle Jimmy added "Miss Minnie's Room" in the 'early 1960s. It was updated with new appliances and ceilings in early 2000s. Original floors, "open cornered" fireplace and knotty pine paneling were retained.

The Neighborhood


Directly @ Flashing Green Marker#17 on Bogue Sound along the Southern Outer Banks (SOBX) of North Carolina. This would be a great stop for ICW Cruisers wanting to stop over for a couple nights northbound or southbound. The dock has a side berth with ~4' draft @ MLW (See chart 11541 in pix). Protected boat basin too with similar draft. 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. Taxi, uber, lyft, etc. Some more info on fridge in cottage. Easy walking distance (1/4 mile) to grocery store, Dollar General and a quickie mart.
