Relax by the River, at the Cottage at Cedar Point -- Kayakers' Dream!

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,200 sq ft
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms - High ceilings, lots of windows and light, water views

UPDATE: This property is under contract as a vacation rental, and the new owners want to have a transition that is as seamless as possible. If you have rented the cottage in the past are are interested in renting in the future, please send a message and I will keep track of all prospective guests. We hope to close in early May. I'd be glad to keep a tentative calendar for the new owner.

Until then . . .

Welcome to the cottage, where you can kick back, relax, and appreciate down time, Southern style. Whether you're a kayaker interested in exploring Eastern NC waterways, a family visiting a loved one at Camp LeJeune, or a couple wanting a romantic refuge, the cottage at Cedar Point can provide a wonderful base for a few days or more. Your well-behaved dog can join you!

Enjoy the rockers on the front porch. Stretch out with a novel (or take a snooze) in the hammock on the screened porch, where you’re looking out on the White Oak River. When feeling more ambitious, you can put in kayaks and paddle toward the marshes of Croatan National Forest, or around the bend and under the Swansboro bridge, across the Intracoastal Waterway, and out toward Bear Island State Park. The cottage is located one (empty) lot from the White Oak River, so you can pull your kayak or canoe to the water from the house. It’s about a 5-10 minute drive to the public beach at Emerald Isle, or to the scenic Tideland Trail of Croatan National Forest. Swansboro is a historic fishing village, a fun place to browse. Go to the Visit Swansboro website to learn more.

Inside the cottage (which was completely repainted in fall 2016), WOW! There are vaulted ceilings, gorgeous colors, lots of windows, and heart pine floors in living room and kitchen. Dining room table seats 6. Great collection of puzzles, games, books. Internet access; TV with cable and internal roku.

Master bedroom has a comfy firm king-sized bed; master bath has a heart-shaped jacuzzi and walk-in shower with two shower heads. We've recently installed a steam generator for the shower, which is especially nice in cooler weather. Second bedroom has two twin beds; second bath has a combo tub/shower. Both baths have heated tile floors.

The house is a no-smoking zone. Ours is a quiet neighborhood, so please, no house parties. The yard is not fenced, but you can walk your dog along the road, which borders the river.

We prefer a maximum of 2-4 guests, for at least three nights. For those who want to stay longer, arrival/departure times can be negotiated (as long as there is not a same-day turn-around) and do not need to be on weekends. In fact, during peak season we encourage arrivals to be on days other than Saturdays.

Swansboro offers several dining options, but if you’re inclined to cook, you’ll enjoy the cottage’s well-equipped kitchen. And you won’t find seafood fresher than the fish sold at Clyde’s, just over the Swansboro bridge.

We believe that "Y'all means ALL," and are intentionally inclusive in welcoming guests without regard to race, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, family structure, or political affiliation. If you love the coast and are looking for a quiet place to stay for a few days, we hope you'll inquire about the cottage. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have, or to suggest things that could improve your visit.

Why Kathleen Davidson chose Cedar Point

This is our second home, and we enjoy sharing it with friends. It's a refuge!

Swansboro is a delightful town!

What makes this cottage unique

Although this property does not have a dock, it is one (empty) lot from the White Oak River, and it's easy to pull kayaks across the path we keep mowed. Paddle under the Swansboro bridge, and head toward Bear Island. Or paddle toward the Croatan National Forest.

We loved everything about our stay. The house was clean and well stocked. The bed was super comfortable. We loved the restaurants around swansboro. We brought kayaks and caught some fish. We can't wait to come back!

Cozy, relaxing home away from home!

  • 4 of 5

Lovely bungalow style cottage with all the comforts of home. My husband and I both raved about what a good night sleep we got because the master bedroom bed was so comfortable and cozy. The house was well stocked with all the essential necessities for our cooking, bathing and laundry needs. We were so thankful this home was pet friendly so we could bring our two little dogs with us. The only negative experience we had was that we found a lot of dog poop left along the side and back yard areas from other dogs. Otherwise, we thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cottage, and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable and relaxing vacation home.

Wonderful location for nature lovers. Cute, well equipped cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location. We paddled, hiked, and enjoyed the beach. The cottage was comfortable and we had everything we needed to prepare meals and relax with our family. The porch and decks were wonderful additional space.

Clean and nice

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and well lived in. You feel like home in the fact it is lived in and you can relax without the worry about making the first scratch in a new car. Quiet little town but close enough to all the bigger places to visit. I'm sure we will be back to Cedar Point.

Clint, Susan, and Cobie.
