Cute and homey cottage away from it all!

  • 4 of 5

We recently spent three nights at this property and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is seemingly nestled in the country but is minutes from downtown Swansboro. The location can hardly be beaten for the affordability.

The place needs a tiny bit of TLC as the kitchen faucet handle is wonky and was difficult to not get scalding hot water (until I got the hang of it). The bathroom door lock is on the outside of the door which swings freely into furniture behind it. It also took us a bit to realize the porch entry door only locked on the deadbolt. And the shower head made an incredibly loud squeal the entirety of each shower. Those are the only cons, which, for the most part, are easily fixable.

The porch is lovely for relaxing and we even saw some shooting stars one evening. One was so large, it looked as though a soundless firework shot overhead before vanishing into the black. The furniture is comfortable and the bed sleeps well. We did not use the pull-out sofa bed as my daughter preferred a blow-up mattress we have. The linens provided were abundant and fresh-smelling. There was plenty of cookware, utensils, and dishes, and I never found myself looking for something that was not already there. Plenty of toiletries, paper towels, and cleaning items too.

I highly recommend going to downtown Swansboro for shopping and dining. We walked around for a couple of hours, enjoying the shops and the water views. There are also very interesting century to two century-old houses there as well. Also, I recommend to make a day of visiting Hammocks Beach State Park and taking the ferry to Bear Island. Its within minutes of the cottage as well and is a truly beautiful beach that is very un-crowded and natural.

Everyone we encountered along the way was very friendly and we definitely would visit the area again. Thank you for allowing us to stay and explore Swansboro!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the info Kim. Wasn’t aware of the kitchen faucet and the shower problems. I would of fixed them while you were there if I had of known. The bathroom door had a history of being locked without being occupied. We will make repairs ASAP just wish you had informed us when you came across the problems Thanks Corky

July 4th week

  • 4 of 5

We all loved the “cottage”! My dogs could play in the big area around the cottage. The only thing that would have made our stay better is a washer and dryer on the property. With three teenagers and myself we had to find a laundry mat a few days into our stay.

I look forward to stay at the cottage again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Mrs Joyce for staying with us. Our little cottage wasn’t designed for a washer and a dryer, in order to keep cost down for our guest. The laundry mat is conveniently located only a couple miles away. Our goal is to try and make our guests stay as comfortable and inexpensive as possible, Thank you again for staying with us, Corky

We enjoyed our stay! Deer at night, tree frogs, and Anoles all with peace and quiet!

Hosts were caring and ready to help, without being in the way! Thank you!! The place was clean and well stocked with towels, some toiletries and a few spices in the kitchen. Cute deck! A few bugs, but they do provide bug spray if you need it. It would be perfect if it was screened in!! We did 11 miles of kayaking and paddle boarding, beaching it daily and a trip to the NC Aquarium. The best part of the trip was going to see the Topsail Sea Turtle Hospital. Went to hospital on Monday and Wednesday they released 8 turtles back into their home after being rehabilitated. A MUST SEE! In Surf City there is a sushi place that sells Thai ice cream. It is home made with the fresh ingredients you choose. It is a treat and an experience watching them make the ice cream!

Thanks for a great time. We will be in touch again!

Bev and Tim.

Cute little cottage

  • 4 of 5

This place was super cute! And clean. The perfect little cottage for me and the dog for a few days. Only a few minutes to Swansboro and a short 15 minute drive to the beach at Bogue Inlet Pier. My only complaint is that the window a/c unit in the bedroom was old and very loud; I couldn't sleep the first couple of nights. I ended up turning it off overnight. It was much quieter and still cool enough with the overhead fan. Otherwise the place was perfect. And my dog loved running in the huge open yard.

First, your host, Corky, is personable, helpful and genuine. Thank you for your hospitality and kindness. We enjoyed talking with you and sharing stories. Second, the cottage is a charming little piece of shabby chic decor, comfortable and very well equipped. We relaxed, sat on the porch and reveled in the peace and quiet, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
