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.
