About the Property
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
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.
Come home to yourself in Hyggelig!

About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Marshallberg, NC, USA:
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 Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
