Our home has a very special history. It once sat on Cape Lookout National Seashore not far from the Cape Lookout Lighthouse. It was originally a one room guest house that sat behind a larger, A-frame house when private homes were common and the National Park Service (NPS) did not yet own the banks. It was moved with the main house on a barge in 1983 to it's current location. The main house sits on the Island a few miles east near what was once Calico Jacks marina. We have added on over the years and created a cozy little, vintage Island home. The decor reflects the local heritage of fishing and waterfowl hunting. Enjoy the vintage charm that is Harkers Island.
The NPS operates a ferry service from the east end of Harkers Island to both the Cape Lookout Lighthouse and Shackleford Banks, where wild horses roam on miles of undisturbed beaches. Also nearby are grocery stores, gift shops, seafood restaurants and the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum. The island is well known for fishing and boating. There is boat parking at the cottage, a marina within walking distance and a public boat ramp close by.
Harkers Island is a short drive to Historic Beaufort and the North Carolina Maritime Museum. Come and enjoy our rich heritage of living, loving and working the water!
