Nestled on a bluff with oaks and pines, this 2 bedroom, bath and a half cottage overlooks the soft, sandy beach of the big and beautiful Neuse River, the Americas widest river at 4 miles across. This 1929 remodeled beach cottage makes for a peaceful, cozy getaway, not to mention great for sailing, fishing, motor boating canoeing, kayaking, bird watching, sun bathing, swimming or simply relaxing! If you read our review, you'll see that most of our guests find it to be the perfect "slice of heaven" for "relaxing, tranquil therapy".
We're located in a lovely, quiet neighborhood that's great for taking walks, jogs or riding bikes.
A Change in Attitude is conveniently located a short drive from historic downtown New Bern where you will find art, entertainment, and fine dining. While in New Bern, stroll downtown for unique shops and enjoy a short walk to historic Tryon Palace and the North Carolina History Center.
We are conveniently located in the heart of "summer camp country", between the very popular camps, Camp Seafarer and Camp Seagull. We are mere blocks from Camp Seagull, the ideal location to stay when dropping off and picking up your children.
Our riverfront neighborhood is a short drive to the sailing capitol of North Carolina, Oriental, a quaint sailing village with shops and restaurants, where you can buy shrimp right off the boat (when in season). Be sure to check out M&Ms while you're there.
Change In Attitude is also an ideal place to stay to visit many of NC's beautiful coastal communities. Minnesott Beach Ferry, a few short blocks away, offers free service and a 20 minute ferry ride across the Neuse. From here, a short drive through the countryside will take you into historic Beaufort, Morehead City, Atlantic Beach NC Aquarium and the beautiful Crystal Coast beaches with shopping, boating, and dining to suit even the pickiest of eaters.
Enjoy your morning coffee and beautiful sunsets while listening to the waves lap upon the beach from out screened back porch, large outdoor deck that overlooks the bluff or from your comfy beach chair or picnic table located on the sandy shores of the river.
If you're a golfer, Minnesott Beach Golf and Country Club is 2 blocks down the street.
