We loved your home, and had an amazing time. The cottage is very pretty, and was stocked with everything we needed. It is a quiet and peaceful location. We enjoyed rocking on the front porch. The historic town of Swansboro has restaurants and shops, and we loved walking around.
Just bring your relaxed vacation mindset and you will need nothing more. Lisa will provide everything else. She really wants you to enjoy her home. GREAT location!! Her only request is simple--leave her home the way you found it.
I had a wonderful week here!!
Beautiful home in excellent location.
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this lovely home in downtown Swansboro. The home was very clean and well appointed. The location was convenient to all area amenities. I would highly recommend.
Convenient walkable downtown location, well equipped 2 BR
Nice coastal country 2 BR cottage in downtown Swansboro. Was perfect for hosting our adult kids coming back home for Christmas when our own home was still storm damaged. Lisa had excellent communications and the house was nicely equipped. Would definitely stay here again!
Comfortable, clean, nicely decorated, great space, awesome downtown spot!
We stayed here with our two children and were very happy with the place. It is perfect for four people. The home is lovely and walking distance to downtown and all the shops and restaurants. There is a nice front porch for shade and back deck for sun. Swansboro is a charming town. Highly recommend this rental.
We had a wonderful time at this sweet Elm Street property in Swansboro. It's a gem of a house and Lisa treated us with respect and promptly addressed any questions we had. I rate this five stars and plan to return. It's an undiscovered gem.
Swansboro, North Carolina, known as the "Friendly City by the Sea," is a quaint, historic town bordered by both the Intra-Coastal Waterway and the White Oak River.
Swansboro's history began around 1730, when the first permanent settlement was established on the former site of an Algonquin Indian village at the mouth of the White Oak River. In 1783, the colonial port town of Swannsborough was incorporated in honor of Samuel Swann, former speaker of the North Carolina House of Commons. Swansboro has managed to retain the quaint charm and quiet character of a picturesque colonial port while developing its successful fishing and tourist industries.
Quaint shops, boutiques and galleries line Front Street, along the picturesque Intra-Coastal Waterway and as you walk from shop to shop, you're likely to see kayakers and paddle-boarders making their way towards the many scenic beaches along Bogue Inlet.
Whether you love seafood, steak, or think of yourself as a strict vegetarian, Swansboro has a variety of restaurants eager to serve their specialties "made to order" for you.
Swansboro has historical sites to discover and lots of 'family-friendly' recreational activities including parks, concerts, art festivals, etc.
Hammocks Beach State Park is a short, 10 minute drive away. A crown jewel of the North Carolina coast and Hammocks Beach State Park is Bear Island—a three-mile-long, undeveloped barrier island accessible by the park’s passenger ferry, private ferry or by paddling a canoe or kayak. A wide beach between massive dunes and the ocean is interrupted only by primitive campsites and a modest concession/picnic complex. The park’s mainland gateway offers a full-service visitor center and is the launch site for ferry service, canoes or kayaks. Rent or bring your own kayaks, canoes or paddleboards to explore paddling trails leading to marshes, Bear Island or Huggins Island, which is graced with unspoiled maritime forest. Interpretive programs and extensive exhibits teach about park ecology and wildlife including endangered sea turtles and nesting shorebirds.
In the opposite direction, and only 10 minutes away, is Emerald Isle, with some of the most beautiful beaches on the East Coast. It offers excellent, freshly caught seafood, beachcombing, shopping and fun for adults and children alike. (A still primarily undiscovered area, Emerald Isle's beaches are all facing south providing some of the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets to be seen!)
