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 !!
