About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This 2 bedroom cottage is located directly on Back Sound on beautiful Harkers Island. It has all the amenities of home and is decorated to reflect local traditions of working the water and the enjoyment of waterfowl. The location is very quiet and provides views of the Cape Lookout National Seashore and spectacular sunsets. Spend your days relaxing on the screened in porch, fishing from the dock, out in your boat or shelling on the banks.

The cottage is within walking distance of a ferry service 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!

Cute and cozy cottage, nice area!!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the cottage, it had everything we needed. The owner was wonderful to work with she answered all my questions and replied to my questions quickly. We were hoping to fish from the dock but unfortunately between the time we reserved the cottage and our check in date Hurricane Matthew decided to hit NC. The dock was destroyed, the owner offered to compensate us but we declined the offer, it was not their fault, it would have been nice to know ahead of time but it would not have changed anything. Anyway I do recommend this cute little cottage. Meeting Mr. Willis was the highlight of the trip!!! He gave us a history of the area lesson, he was great. Loved the area!! Beautiful sunrises and sunsets!!

Back to our Roots!

  • 5 of 5

My two sisters , a niece and I had a great time while visiting family and friends during our stay.

The cottage was within walking distance to many of our childhood memories.

The visits from Mr. Sam Willis(scallop house)....with his stories of the past were a unexpected but great addition to our stay.

I recommend this cottage 110%!

Place to relax and breathe!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is a no-frills place to relax and enjoy all the surrounding areas to explore - the view from the windows is mesmerizing - looking out at the bay was a favorite past-time! The people on the island are really friendly and welcome "outsiders" - different from some of the other islands I've visited, like Tilghman's...the water definitely lives up to its name, crystal clear and emerald! Swimming was awesome!

Perfect Weekend

  • 4 of 5

First time to this Island. Lived in NC all our lives. Cannot believe i have been missing out on this beautiful place. Great cottage. Very quiet and peaceful. Our pets were in heaven. If you come here, you must take a ferry ride to the lighthouse and Shackleford Banks. Beautiful! And the museum was a great experience. We will be back!
