About the property

Overlooking Back & Bath Creeks in Historic Bath, the oldest town in NC

Welcome to The Bath House overlooking both Back and Bath Creeks in Historic Bath, the oldest town in North Carolina.

The Bath House, our family summer home, is comfortably and lovingly appointed, and features 3 downstairs bedrooms and 2 full baths. The master suite has a queen bed, full bath and separate dressing table with sink, not to mention full-length windows, allowing beautiful views of the water. Two guest bedrooms share a bathroom, with queen bed and the other with 2 twin beds. The fourth upstairs queen bedroom has a half bath and a downstairs shower off the garage. Bed and bath linens are provided.

The spacious great room with beautiful cathedral ceilings, full-length windows and large brick wood-burning fireplace provides plenty of room for gathering and relaxing with access to deck and 4 comfortable rocking chairs and built in benches: ideal for enjoying waterfront views and spectacular sunsets. A cozy sun room adjoins eat-in kitchen with dining table that seats eight, and more floor-to-ceiling windows for those unforgettable views.

Extras include a 110-foot pier with two Adirondack chairs (and plenty of folding chairs) that affords fishing, crabbing, swimming, and sunning. Deep water access welcomes boats (a boat ramp is just minutes away). Two grills, one large gas and one charcoal, high speed wireless, family-sized kitchen with large and small appliances galore --- all designed to make it easy to soak in the sun and the local culture, and truly escape.

Make yourself at home. Play corn hole, ride bikes (2 in the garage), kayak at daybreak. We left our rafts, large-brimmed hats, and a few beach towels.

The promise of a memorable and restorative vacation can be yours !!

More: Visit the Historic Bath Visitor Center to learn about Bath's history. Enjoy a walking tour of the town and visit what was once the residence of Blackbeard the Pirate, take guided tours of 2 historic homes and see St. Thomas Episcopal Church, the oldest church in North Carolina. "Little Washington" is 15 minutes away with locally owned boutiques, galleries, antique shops, jewelry and gift shops, and a surprising collection of wonderful restaurants that are well-known for their superb local fare. Belhaven is located just down the road from Bath (8 miles by boat) and the Outer Banks of N.C. lay 15 miles east(by boat). The Bayview/Aurora Ferry is located 6 miles down the road. Enjoy digging for fossils at the Aurora Fossil Museum.

REST, REPLENISH, RELAX, REPEAT.

Perfect Cousin Trip

  • 5 of 5

My cousins and I have been taking an annual summer trip for several years now. Our families are super close, and we started this tradition back when we were teenagers. The Bath House was absolutely perfect for our long weekend getaway! It was close enough from our homes that even with work schedules, almost everyone was able to come at some point. The house is (super clean), quaint and homey-but very spacious. The kitchen had everything we needed. We cooked and grilled out and ate every meal outside! We couldn't stay inside much with such an awesome yard and relaxing porch. Morning coffee was wonderful topped off with an amazing view. The dock is larger than it looks in the pictures and has plenty of room for us to relax in the sun and shade (umbrella provided!) We swam, fished, crabbed, tubed, knee boarded, skied and kayaked! We played as hard as any young adults possible could. (Good, clean fun!) Our favorite part was the extremely generous renter. Mrs. Maude could not have been any nicer and more accommodating to us. She was very easy to work with and checked on us to ensure we were enjoying our stay. She shared her beautiful waterfront home with us as if we were family, and we can't thank you enough the opportunity you gave us. We made memories that will last forever.

Thanks again!

Coudlld not have been a nicer stay!

  • 5 of 5

I am sitting on the back deck overlooking the water right now and not liking the thought of having to leave. Had a wonderful family gathering for a wedding nearby.

This home is spacious, the beds comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. Extremely quiet area and while they house has neighbors, the setting is private and the property has a large side yard that we played disc golf on. There is a large dock with lots of seating and some of our gang went swimming. While we didn't use it, all the equipment is there for catching crabs.

Grocery store just 15 minutes away and the quaint town of Washington offers nice restaurants and shop.

Maude, our hostess was easy to contact and highly recommend this lovely piece of heaven!

Home Run

  • 5 of 5

Rented the house to celebrate a birthday, and it couldn't have been better. Maude was incredibly easy to work with, and the house/view were perfect. There were 8 of us and the house accommodated us easily. There are good restaurants nearby in Belhaven and Little Washington, but we chose to stay in and grill 2 of our 3 nights given how peaceful it was at the house. We will definitely be back!
