THIS HOME IS LOCATED JUST 5 MINUTES FROM THE DOWNTOWN NEW BERN HISTORIC DISTRICT. (* Free to use bikes on site.*)
Bamboo Cottage is a newly renovated 1940's cottage with lovely handcrafted stained glass windows and wood floors. This cottage is very clean and comfortable. It is located just minutes across the Neuse River from downtown historic New Bern. This charming 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, cottage has a large living/dining room, eat-in kitchen, front porch, sun room and a large deck overlooking the very private 'bamboo garden'. This comfy cottage has privacy and yet is close to everything. New Bern is a beautiful, historic, small town. There are all of the historic sites, as well as, the natural beauty of the area. 'Bamboo Cottage' is a perfect spot to enjoy them both. The cottage is located just one house back from the Neuse River and has water access at the end of the street where you can launch kayaks or swim.

About Melissa Hutchinson
Nick and Missy moved to New Bern, NC in 1988. Nick was originally born in England and led a very interesting life in many different countries. Missy was born in Md but always loved the southeast. After graduating from the Univ. of MD in 1983 we moved to Florida together. In 1988 we decided to sell everything and live on our sailboat, cruise the Bahamas and Florida, and then cruise up the East Coast. We got to NC and haven't left.
Melissa Hutchinson purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Melissa Hutchinson chose Bridgeton
We live in New Bern and saw that it had so much to offer visitors. There were hotels in the area but very very few vacation rentals. We prefer to stay in a home when we travel and so assumed others would as well. So we bought and renovated Bamboo Cottage in 2006. And our wonderful guests have loved it here as much as we have!
What makes this Cottage unique
It is close to downtown New Bern, yet is in a quiet village. There is a water access less than a block away handy for launching kayaks or paddleboards (but no parking).

Cute cottage convenient yet private
We loved the Bamboo Cottage! It had plenty of room, all the conveniences, a well equipped kitchen and was quiet and homey yet close to the highway. We were visiting the area to see our grandson a marine at Cherry Point, but also went to cape Lookout Lighthouse and Fort Macon . If he continues to be stationed here we would be thrilled to use Bamboo Cottage again and recommend it highly!
Bamboo Cottage, March 2018
An older cottage, but nicely updated clean, and well equipped. More than enough room for the two of us, would be comfortable for four. Location makes for easy access to New Bern (10 minute drive) and other interesting places.
Thanks so much. We enjoyed having you stay with us. We love meeting people from different places. And we hope you come again next year as tentatively planned, either in this cottage or our new GardenSea Ctg. (Just curious, what could we improve either in our cottage or on our website to get a five star rating?)
Very clean nice place to stay in that area would come back again
I am so glad you enjoyed our Bamboo Ctg. and New Bern. If I can ask, what can we improve at our cottage to make it five star in your opinion? (I don't usually get less than five star and would love to make improvements if needed.)
My wife and daughter and I recently stayed here for two weeks after moving to New Bern while awaiting the settlement on our house. In short, we loved it! The house is much bigger than it appears from the outside and is very roomy on the inside for a two bedroom home. The neighborhood is very quiet with easy access to downtown New Bern.
So glad you enjoyed your stay!
Lovely, cottage - very cozy
We went to New Bern to visit and check out retirement areas. We needed a place to stay that was close to New Bern but quieter. The Bamboo cottage fit the bill perfectly. We brought our dogs along and they enjoyed the walks around the neighborhood. Thanks Bill
So glad you enjoyed your stay. I hope you had a successful trip and will be moving here. It is a great place to live. Thank you, Missy
We enjoyed this cottage so much. It was exceptionally clean and well stocked with basics needs. It was so peaceful sitting on the front porch. Very quiet neighborhood with easy access to everything.
So glad you enjoyed our little cottage. Thank you.
Just across the Neuse River from the 'Bamboo Cottage' is the town of New Bern with it's many interesting destinations, including Tryon Palace, museums, restaurants and shopping. And if you would like to venture a little further, the ocean and beaches are less than an hour away, and the quaint waterfront towns of Beaufort and Morehead City are even closer. The Croatan National Forest is just outside of New Bern and offers hiking and nature observing. 'Bamboo Cottage' is a great centralized location to explore the coastal area or to stay right around New Bern and relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Other Activities: kayaking, boating and shark tooth hunting (a favorite with the kids)
