About the property

Private eating porch, green space, large property with circular driveway

The William Andrew Way House, ca. 1872, is one of the oldest remaining homes in the charming village of Marshallberg, North Carolina. Marshallberg is one of the 13 communities of Down East on North Carolina's Crystal Coast. Marshallberg is close to the Cape Lookout National Seashore and is part of the North Carolina Outer Banks Scenic Byway. The Way House was thoroughly remodeled and modernized in 2012.

The kitchen is well equipped by the owner who loves to cook. It has a gas stove and dishwasher, an island counter with stools and a custom-built wooden table that seats 10 (and is great for working on jigsaw puzzles).

The master bedroom has a queen bed and private door into the bathroom.

The second bedroom has a queen bed and a single bed.

The library has a new Ikea couch that folds out into a single bed.

The library has a smart TV, DVD and Blue Ray player. There are also books and jigsaw puzzles and yoga equipment.

The house has WiFi.

The Way house has a private screened-in porch off the kitchen surrounded by bird-filled green space with a table and chairs for dining al fresco and the house comes with a gas Bar-B-Q.

The location is very quiet. There is a public dock off Center Street that faces Core Banks across Core Sound. The park at the end of the Marshallberg Road is a favorite place to watch the sunset. Beside the park a small harbor holds both pleasure and working boats. The village offers interesting walking and bicycling; two bikes are included with the rental.

Marshallberg is a short drive from the Harkers Island ferry to Cape Lookout National Seashore, the Harkers Island Waterfowl Museum, the Cedar Island ferry to Ocracoke, lovely Beaufort NC, Atlantic Beach, hiking in Croatan National Forest, historic Fort Macon State Park, historic New Bern and other historic North Carolina coastal towns.

The Way House suits couples and young families or as a writer's retreat.

Wonderful house with necessities provided.

  • 5 of 5

William Andrew Way House was very comfortable and spacious. We immediately felt at home when we arrived. There are lots and lots of brochures to help learn about the local area and tourist attractions. Marshallberg is a very small town that only has a gas station and small local shop, but a larger local shop is 3 miles away in Smyrna. We truly enjoyed our stay here!

Such a comfy home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was so comforting! It reminded me of being at home with my parents. The previous guest left a puzzle for us to work on, which I loved. The kitchen was stocked with supplies in case we didn't have something. There's only 1 tv so it limits the amount of time you spend in front of it or on video games. My husband, 2 teenagers, & myself got to spend time doing other stuff like going out exploring, fishing, playing scrabble, & relaxing. The night before we left I got out the blender & made milkshakes..yum. The place was clean & lovely, the owners were kind & accommodating. We will visit again!

Lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our weekend in this beautiful historical home. It's located in a small quiet town, but only a 15 to 20 minute drive to Beaufort and to the Ferry for Cape Lookout. It was nice to feel like a guest as everything was stocked as if someone was living there. We left some ice cream behind for the next guests :-) It was nice that our little dog was allowed as well - she had fun on the ferry and at the beach, although it was really windy this time of year. The homeowner replied quickly to a question about the wifi, which worked fine after I figured out the password. Would definitely stay there again!

Lovely home. Very clean and well equipped.

The little town of Marshallberg was beyond charming. We thoroughly enjoyed riding the bikes our hosts supplied. Beaufort is a short, easy ride as is Atlantic Beach. We're planning on a return trip already!
