Cozy Room On Bogue Sound. Beautiful Old Mitchell Village

Bedrooms 2
Property type house


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4 and another Bedroom with its own bath sleeps 3.

Our charming brick home in the shade of the hickories on Bogue Sound has a pier, a kayak, or just read on the "nook" overlooking the sparkling water. Very quiet old neighborhood, but minutes to town. Come see the crystal coast from the highest lot in the county. Rent this room and walk out to watch the barges and sailboats along the Intracoastal Waterway.

We have one room available. It faces the water with a Full-sized bed and optional roll-away. We can turn the bed into two twin beds. The room has its own bathroom and bed configurations can be customized. All guests have access to the common areas, and the most beautiful property in Carteret County. Just to clarify: this is not a whole home. We are renting out one room in our home. We would be delighted to have you visit!

About Lori McNiel

Grandaddy built the home in 1957 with the help of his boys. His eldest, David, now owns it with wife Lori. After an interesting life as linguists and educators, they enjoy reading, music, bike rides and the chances they get to play with grandkids.

Lori McNiel purchased this house in 1957

Why Lori McNiel chose Morehead City

There is not better neighborhood to go for a walk than Mitchell Village. And nothing beats sitting on the nook or out on the pier and enjoying the beautiful water.

What makes this house unique

Grandaddy and his boys cleaned thousands of reclaimed brick to build his dream home on the water. Grandmother spent five decades planting flowers. It is not a magazine-perfect home, but a comfortable and classic place to stay. The view can't be beat!

Outstanding stay

  • 5 of 5

It would be hard to imagine a more beautiful outdoor setting. Great hospitality. Use of kitchen and patio rooms made for a relaxed, "homey" feel. Bedroom and bathroom spacey. Hosts very friendly and accommodating. Abundant wildlife and dolphins passing by. Thank you so much.

The location could not have been better. Quite neighborhood with easy access to the beach, aquarium, shopping etc. Hosts are friendly and outgoing, even got up to make me coffee at 5:30 am! LOVED the outdoor spaces, the hammock overlooking the water was a treat. The dock was made for relaxing!
