The perfect base from which to explore–and be in–coastal NC! This waterfront apt with a boat ramp is away from hustle and bustle, but close to Atlantic Beach (50 miles), New Bern (30 miles), or Oriental, the sailing capital of NC (7 miles). The apartment is part of a home historically significant to its neighborhood–it once served as a general store and a post office, and now it makes a beautiful spot from which to survey the charming waterfront town. Come on down, climb on up, and enjoy!

The space
Many years ago, this home was the meeting place for everyone to catch up on the day’s news in the town of Pamlico. Since then, the house has been re-oriented, elevated, and made into two separate living quarters, one of which is plenty spacious and is offered here as your waterfront retreat. The flavor of the past–a convivial rusticity, but with today’s amenities–lives on in this beautiful apartment with high gloss pine floors, an outstanding wraparound deck (shared space), and boat ramp into quiet water (what we call a “gut”) that quickly transitions to Broad Creek, which is prime NC boating water. The water is practically boiling with fish in the summer, and the sunset is unbelievably gorgeous! Wintertime brings in the pelicans and occasionally the otters, but the great blue heron and the dolphins may surprise you at any time! Please note that there is a nice inflatable queen bed to accommodate an additional 2 people beyond the 1BR (for a total of 4 guests).

Guest access
The back apartment, accessed from the back steps, is all yours. The wraparound porch is shared with the front apartment when someone is there, which is not often.

Other things to note
Steps to climb to access apartment. Water extremely close by–please watch children very carefully! Boats, outbuildings, and garage workshop are off limits.
