Why Danny Murphy chose Marshallberg

This is our HAPPY PLACE! We are just starting to rent because we do not have as much free time to use. We have spent most every summer, spring & fall weekend at Marshelberg since we purchased about 12 years ago. We love it & know you will too!

What makes this cottage unique

Spectacular views. Quiet. Remote location but close enough to get to Beaufort or Atlantic Beach in just a few minutes.

We will be coming back to stay again!! Absolutely LOVED it here! Fixing a cup of coffee and walking out on the dock every morning was Fantastic and a Great Way to start our day. The house and location was perfect for our family. Being able to fish and crabbing at the dock was great. When it rained we were still able to sit outside underneath the house. We LOVED everything about it. Relaxing!!

Awesome Week in Lovely Home!

  • 5 of 5

Had an awesome week sitting on the porches and dock! Such a nice home and one of the best supplied homes we've ever stayed in. The location is perfect! We got to see dolphins, shrimp and other boats go by. Also could see the Cape Lookout lighthouse and horses on browns island from the deck. Caught crab in the crabpots and fished from the dock. Was able to use our kayaks and go claming. Very nice vacation, and very much worth the price.

Did NOT want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

If you love being on the water, this is the place to be. Water front views from almost every room in the house. Great fishing off the pier. The sound is HUGE. We saw dolphins swimming close by daily. The views are breathtaking. Very quiet & private neighborhood. The house was fully stocked inside and out with crab pots & kayak.

The constant breeze off the water keeps you cool even when it’s hot outside. My favorite spot was the screen porch which faced the sound. Such a peaceful place. Hope to go back soon.

Convenient and Relaxing Place for the Family

  • 5 of 5

Danny and Jan’s home was a great place for a Spring Break stay for my family and I. We had access to their dock and with a public boat launch within walking distance, we had a chance to use our small power boat. When the wind picked up and made boating a challenge we did day trips into Beaufort and Harker’s Iskand. Lots to do and see if you like learning about the great fishing and boat building history of the area.

Access to local seafood from Mr. Big and having a full kitchen made for a couple of great family dinners.

Thanks Danny and Jan for a headache free accommodation.

Like being on a ship

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Murphy's. We have stayed in ocean front properties but staying on the tidal sound was a very special experience. The house is so close to the water and has so many windows, you feel like you are in a ship on the water. My young children enjoyed watching the changes brought on by each tide and the constant visitations by different types of birds. Although is was early in the season, we set out the crab pots and caught a hermit crab which was fun. We tried fishing on the docks but nothing was biting and the weather was too cold. FYI, I can report that their heating system works very well! We appreciated the well-supplied kitchen. We spent a day taking the ferry to Shackleford Banks and Cape Lookout - this is a must for any trip. Every night we ate at one of the wonderful seafood restaurants on Harker's Island, about 10 minutes away. Twice we went to Seaside (amazing chowder and fried shrimp, where the locals eat) and the other time Fish Hook grill (also very good, tuna was great). The Murphy's are great to work with and very responsive. We hope to return another time during warmer weather to enjoy swimming, kayaking and fishing.
