Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Communication with the property owner was great. Roman is a great guy and was very helpful and fun to chat with. The house is very well kept, clean, and was perfect for our trip.

Not what we expected

  • 3 of 5

The place was beautiful but extremely hot. We did not realize the kitchen was part of a garage with no air conditioner. Nor did we know it was in someone back yard. A bit uncomfortable

Beautifully, Perfectly Remote.

  • 5 of 5

I booked The Boat House so that we could go to Harker's Island and take the Ferry to Shackleford and Cape Lookout. Also the Cedar Island Ferry is not far. I honestly didn't know how remote it would be, but I have no complaints. We didn't have internet service but I could text and received full service once we crossed the island. Being there with 2 college aged children and a 7 year old and there were no complaints about not being able to be on phones or games. The house was one of the cleanest places that I've ever stayed and fully equipped. The pictures are just what you get, and in no way is that a bad thing, PLUS you have beautiful acreage. We played pool, cards, had water gun battles and the best thing again, no complaints from the kids!! Be prepared to drive in to Beaufort or Morehead about 45 minutes if you need the city atmosphere, but there is a gas station and Dollar General on the island if you need anything extra.

If you want to connect with your family and or just have a relaxing time be sure to check out The Boat House. The owner does do boat charters and there's a chicken coop for fresh eggs, and they are the nicest people. All in all it's a beautiful place.

Great place to take bikes, kites, kayaks, fishing equipment and any other outdoor activities. And don't forget your camera, not a cell phone, but a real camera!!!
