Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Gorgeous waterfront log cabin in the Crystal Coast. A relaxing get-away within 25 minutes of ocean front activities. Perfect for couples, families, fishermen, and anyone who wants to relax and enjoy life and the beauty that surrounds. It's tucked between the Croatan National Forest and the Newport River Bay.

Unique to this property are the rustic log cabin walls, hardwood floors, a wood burning fireplace and comfortable chairs for an ideal retreat. Find open common areas, a fully-furnished kitchen, and a large waterfront deck. Views of sunrise, shrimp boats, and crab point across the bay are admired from big picture windows and the deck. A platform tree house is built in a large oak tree next to the deck.

The 150 foot private pier is for fishing, shrimping, crabbing, kayaking, or watching egrets, crabs, and other native North Carolina wildlife along the protected coastline.

First Floor:

Main level of the cabin. Large water-facing picture windows in open living area and kitchen/ dining areas. Magnificent view of the water. A large full bathroom and the master bedroom are on the main level.

Second Floor:

Two bedrooms, a large bathroom, and an open social area. The upper level balcony in front of the bedrooms also has a waterfront view. The upstairs social area and bedrooms overlook the lower level living area.

Note for boaters: At the pier, there is no ladder into the water, and the water depth at low tide at the end of the pier is only inches of water. During low tide, the pier may not be accessible by water for motorized boats, and may be grounded if docked. The entire river basin is two to six feet deep, and best suited to kayaks/canoes or smaller low drafting boats.

About Natasha

Owners Scott Wyckoff and Natasha Wyckoff are continuing the dream of their mother to create a beautiful peaceful retreat for all to enjoy.

The cabin is on the waterfront, tucked in the Croatan National Forest near Mill Creek.

Natasha purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Natasha chose Coastal North Carolina

Our mother chose this area for the waterfront, open land, and privacy. She and others spent 4 years building this cabin. Susan labored over cleaning up the land, rebuilding the pier after a previous hurricane, selecting and cutting cedar wood to create the cedar closets in the bedrooms, and finding the perfect hardwood flooring to further beautify her cabin.

Cabin moments...

- Relaxing on the deck while the morning sun rises and reflects on the water.

- Family meals in front of huge picture windows facing the water.

- Watching delighted kids' faces as they watch the marsh crabs scurry under the dock.

- Curling up with a good book or your loved one in front of the wood burning fireplace.

- Shopping in Beaufort's unique shops and boutiques nearby.

Clean, secluded, & great view.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin has a wonderful view. We enjoyed sitting on the deck & looking out into the ocean. It was clean & close enough to Atlantic Beach. The only complaint we have would be that the smoke detectors kept going off. The maintenance staff was quick to respond & fix the jssue. Over all, we give it 2 thumbs up.

Best vacation ever!!

  • 5 of 5

Let me first say, this cabin by the water is everything and more! The location is serene, the neighbors are wonderful, Ray and Debbie next door are just some of the warmest people you will ever meet. We went for a week with my husband, 2 daughters, my mom, my father in law, and my brother in law. Never once did we feel like we were on top of each other. We had a few small maintenance issues but Ray and Debbie were always right there and on top of it. It's only about 20 minutes or so from Morehead City and then a few more minutes to any of the beaches. Fort Macon beach was probably my favorite personally. Overall, our trip was incredible and we are looking forward to being able to come back for another week soon! Thanks again Natasha for sharing your moms home with us!

Pictures don't do it justice.

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed it. Family and friends stayed with us and loved it too. Kitchen was nice, bedrooms good, washer and dryer worked well. Tree platform was a huge hit with the kids, caught great crabs from the pier and watched moonrise over the water there. The wind from the water made the porch as comfortable as could be. No real complaints but a couple of suggestions. Something raided the trash, and by the chew marks all along the lid it looks like they are doing it regularly. A locking trashcan would be great. We ran out of propane but the neighbor replaced it with a small cannister, that was nice. There was a rubbermaid tub under the stairs that looked like it had held charcoal that was full of mosquito and larvae. Once we dumped it there were noticibly fewer One other suggestion might be a cleaning checklist in the binder, so that we know we've covered the stuff we're responsible for. I would absolutely rent this again and may set something up soon. I'm climbing into my car now which is nice and cool from being under the beautiful oak tree behind the porch.
