We would like to welcome you to "The Easy Plateau" Cottage on Taylor's Creek in Beaufort.
Our home is comfortable and clean and is supplied with everything you need, including TVs in the living room and each bedroom, wireless internet and a modern kitchen with all new appliances. Fresh bed linens are provided as are bath towels and wash clothes.
Our cottage has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The shower for the second bath, is an outdoor shower which is private and easily accessible directly from the bathroom.
There is also a bonus room off the livingroom which has a comfortable day bed. We call it the "Hemingway Room" as the decor is inspired by Hemingway's boat, Pilar.
We've just added a huge floating dock with room for 2 boats and there is also a floating kayak dock, swim ladder, fish cleaning station and bench seating on the pier.
From the front porch and dock, you will enjoy a continuous parade of boats, wild horses and pirate shenanigans. With deep and calm water, Taylor's Creek is the perfect harbor.
You will only be 1/2 mile from downtown Beaufort, where you'll find plenty of restaurants, bars and shops.
It's a quick drive to world class beaches, the ICW, the North Carolina aquarium, charter boat fishing and cruising and diving. There are fishing tournaments and festivals galore, including The Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament, The Beaufort Pirate Invasion, The Beaufort Historic Home and Garden Tour, The Beaufort Music Festival, Wooden Boat Show, Harker's Island Duck Decoys, and NC Seafood Festival. There are always fun activities in town including live music almost nightly on the town boardwalk.
Beaufort was one of Blackbeards favorite hangouts. Had you been our guest in 1717, you would have laid gaze on Blackbeard's mooring , as the home that he frequently visited while on holiday from pirating, is only a half a block behind us. There is little doubt that he walked across our property to reach his girlfriend's home. He ran aground off Beaufort's coast 300 years ago, and the Beaufort branch of the North Carolina Maritime Museum proudly displays artifacts salvaged from his ship, the Queen Anne’s Revenge.
Beaufort has been voted best yachting destination and America's Coolest Small Town. The Cape Lookout National Seashore was recently voted best National Park. You can see the beacon flash of the Cape Lookout lighthouse from the front porch at night.
If you rent our home we ask that you respect the peace and privacy of your neighbors. While Beaufort has become a bustling tourist destination, it is still a quiet community, especially after dark.
We know you will enjoy your vacation at "The Easy Plateau" in Beaufort .
