We had a great time! We will return.

  • 5 of 5

Our week at this cottage was great! Michelle and Dale are super hosts and made a point of making our stay a real pleasure - really nice folks!

They have just completed renovations that included expansive new decks on the side and rear (both with picnic tables) - and the fully screened "sunset porch" was a great loafing place to watch the boats, docks, and the river. The downstairs bedroom which has its own shower and bath was perfect for our young couple and their three year old. The child could go to bed early and the grandparents could have quiet time alone upstairs. The downstairs room opens on a fenced yard that can contain little ones. Upstairs shares a shower and bathroom between the two bedrooms - the arrangement works well and maintains privacy. The cottage is on 2 acres of lawn and has plenty of room for parking boat trailers and playing in the grass. We fished and crabbed (crab traps are provided) from the docks and enjoyed our catch at several meals. We also enjoyed our time in the kayaks that were provided. The neighborhood is quiet, well-maintained, and very friendly. We enjoyed the folks that lived nearby and we benefited from their advice regarding fishing, boating, shopping, etc.

There is a weather protected private boat dock on a small canal just off the river, which is accessible to shallower draft boats, and a community dock on the river that has deeper water but more exposure to wind and waves. We docked our Catalina 25 swing keel sailboat at the river dock, but found that a few days of constant SW winds lowered the water level enough to make it more practical to dock the boat in Oriental. The wind made it a challenge for the sailboat to cross the bar that lays about 60 feet offshore - although power boats had no problems with it. A smaller, shallow draft sailboat (ours is 3 ft draft with board up) would probably work out fine.

Oriental is only about 10 minutes away for food stores, restaurants, etc. Great location - private, quit, yet accessible. We will definitely return!

Great location, great view, great owner and comfor

  • 5 of 5

Rented this place recently with a few friends to get away fishing for a few days. First, Michelle is great and super responsive. Second the location couldn't be better. The sunrises are great, pier access awesome, beds comfortable and a nice grill on the porch. The dock is very protected and easy to get a 20 foot boat into. My only complaint is not having power on dock, but i understand the challenge as it's very wet down there. Overall very positive and will definitely return.

Lovely place w/ great views of the river.

  • 5 of 5

This was a gift reservation for my daughter and new husband for their mini-honeymoon. They really enjoyed their stay here and felt that everything was great. The views from the house were of the river, the bed was comfortable and they had everything in the kitchen they needed to enjoy a couple days after their wedding. She said she would recommend this to anyone looking for a rustic place w/ great views and easy access for fishing.

Perfect for the Fishing Family

  • 5 of 5

The perfect porch surrounded by the beautiful Neuse River. This was a great get away where our adult children joined us for a Labor Day weekend of canoeing, fishing, and paddle boarding just outside our back door. Great stories to be had of catching sea trout, flounder, stripper and puppy drum! The owners aim to please in every way. You'll certainly make a lot of family memories tucked away in this quaint, peaceful

cabin on the creek!! Hope we can return again someday!
