Overview

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.

Very nice stay!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, fun water front. Were even able to watch our home town Utah Jazz on Direct TV. Wish our Cougs would have won though. Very fun location and great clean house.

Beautiful home. Beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend with friends in this lovely home - and it truly felt like home. Very well equipped kitchen including prep tools, serving dishes for appetizers and main course. Great deck (with views of Bath Bay) and boat dock. We would return in a heartbeat!

The Bath House

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time staying in Bath. I truly enjoyed the slow pace and rural setting. The Bath House is such a nice place to stay. We enjoyed the layout and amenities that this home has to offer. Maude is an involved landlord. I enjoyed my dealings with her and would recommend this home to anyone thinking about staying in Bath!

A Beautiful Place and a Relaxing Time

  • 5 of 5

Another year and another awesome family getaway to the Bath House on Bath Creek. We first rented the house last summer when my family’s beach plans fell through and we didn’t miss a chance to stay on the creek again this year. Last year we explored Bath on the bikes from the garage and this year we tried out the kayaks to get a closer look at the waterfront view. We grilled and fished and crabbed during the day and played cards over wine and laughs every evening.

Both times we’ve stayed we felt at home immediately. Maude makes an effort to accommodate every preference and adds small “necessities” to the offering as guests make requests. We cannot wait to stay again next summer.

The property was everything we hoped it would be; you walked in and knew you were on vacation.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were looking for a vacation rental on the water for a long weekend getaway and this one made a great impression online and lived up to our expectation. It felt like home, it was warm and cozy, but was large enough that 7 adults and 5 children could comfortably hang out in the main areas of the home. The kids were happy that they could fish and crab off the docks right outside and the yard space was massive for them to play. We would recommend this property to our family and friends.
