Hyggelig (hoo-ga-lee) is a Danish word expressing an atmosphere of well-being, comfort, and togetherness: a grand coziness found right here in Marshallberg, NC!
Marshallberg is a peaceful little fishing village on Core Sound with a sense of place and permanence. Marshallberg streets are perfect for dog-walking and biking. Its shallow shores are ideal for clamming, birding, and kayaking. Cape Lookout, Harker's Island and Shackleford Banks are a short boat ride from the Marshallberg boat ramp.
Hyggelig is a 5 minute walk from the harbor, a waterfront park and a boat ramp. With spacious rooms, large windows and wooden floors, the home brings the outside in. Large windows facing the enclosed back porch make the living room feel even larger. The living room features large plank pine floors, a tuned piano, sitting area, game table, and a wood stove.
The kitchen and dining room overlook azaleas and large pines in the front yard. The main bedroom is a suite, sleeping 2 to 6. It has two sleeping areas, a walk-in closet, a large bathroom with garden tub and shower, and access to a large deck shaded by wisteria.
The second bedroom sleeps two and has a full bath and access to the backyard through a sweet little stoop. The fenced backyard is your own private park shaded by pecan, maple,and fig trees.
Come home to yourself in Hyggelig!

The house was my home for more than 12 years and it has been a labor of love to renovate it. I enjoy caring for it and I'm happy to share it with you.
Anna Hilting purchased this cottage in 1998
Marshallberg has a great sense of place. It has the old-timey feel of Grand Junction, the small town in west Tennessee where my mother was raised, and where I came home to as a child.
I hope you'll enjoy the small town atmosphere.
The open layout offers areas to settle in for reading, eating, or visiting that feel cozy while retaining a connection to rest of the house.
This house was spacious and warm. Anna does a great job making this rental feel like you have arrived home. There are games/kayaks/bikes to use, basic amenities that you are likely to forget (ie. coffee, sugar). AC worked great and the place was incredibly clean. This home is only a short hop from Harkers Island/Cape Lookout and a 20 min drive to Morehead City. Compare to hotels and its a really obvious choice to stay at Hyggelig. You wont regret it.
The property was extremely well maintained and clean. The home was in a very quiet and relaxing neighborhood and short walk to the waterfront. Our family really enjoyed the home very much and it was perfect for our family of 5. I am hoping we get to return soon!
I stayed here with a group of friends for a fishing tournament that in which we were competing over the weekend. Not only was the house very clean and comfortable, Anna was absolutely wonderful to deal with. I'll be re-booking this home as soon as we get next year's tournament dates!
Very clean, we'll appointed rooms. Will definitely return.
We had an amazing time staying here celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary. The house was clean, spacious, and very well stocked with the basics, as well as some extras. Anna is very warm, welcoming, and thoughtful. She even had an anniversary gift waiting in the fridge for us. There are lots of great books around the house for reading and fresh flowers in every room. Anna definitely goes the extra mile to cater to her guests and make you feel special. We are looking forward to staying here again.
My family enjoyed the comfort of this spacious accommodation, at an affordable price.
“Hyggelig” boasts all of the amenities you would expect to make your Outer Banks vacation all the more relaxing and easy. Fully furnished linens and kitchen, private bedrooms and bathrooms, Wi-Fi, grill, bikes, and kayaks certainly entertained my family of 4. We ventured out in our boat to explore the Core Sound, Harker's Island, Shackelford Banks, and Cape Lookout Lighthouse, and did a little fishing. We also shopped at Lookout Grocery only 5 minutes away in Smyrna, you have to try their WONDERFUL home made chicken salad, loaded potato salad, and pimento cheese!
Anna, the owner, answered every question promptly and genuinely! I highly recommend this property!! We will be back!!
