Property description

* Free to use bikes on site, and also canoe and kayaks nearby.*

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. (Request our home-owner's website for more information and pictures.) 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

Welcome!!: We hope you enjoy our cottage. We have them set up so that you only need to bring your clothes and food. Everything else is here to be enjoyed (even boats!!). We are known for keeping our cottage very clean and comfy. If you'd like more information or pictures email us and I can send you to our homeowner website also. Thanks!!

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)


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose New Bern, NC, USA:
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!
