Lovely Swansboro Cottage
We had a great stay in this cottage in Swansboro over Christmas. The house is historic with beautiful hardwood floors. It has a main area open layout and a double master suite bedroom arrangement. Huge yard on a quiet street. Swansboro is a charming little town on the inland waterway with great shops and restaurants and close to Emerald Isle beaches. You will really enjoy your stay, Lisa was very communicative and easy to work with. We will be back!
Original hardwood floors and ten foot ceilings greet you as you enter this charming home. Beautifully decorated, just moments from historic Swansboro and all it has to offer. It has everything from rocking chairs on the front porch to relax and read as well as a fully stocked kitchen should you want to enjoy a home-cooked meal. This home has the character of a home built in the 30’s but has every modern convenience! Will definitely stay here again while visiting our son!
My dream cottage.
There is not enough room in this little box to say all the wonderful things I want to say about this charming cottage and it’s lovely owner.
The house is immaculate, spacious, beautifully decorated and has a perfect layout. Each bedroom has its own bathroom which was an added bonus. The pictures honestly don’t do it justice. The 9’foot ceilings make this home seem much larger than it is. There is also a large back deck off the master bedroom so you can enjoy the outdoor space. It is In The perfect location to walk to all the wonderful things Swansboro has to offer.
Lisa was incredibly responsive and went above and beyond for us. The only time I was unhappy was when I had to say goodbye. 😢�.
Awesome location that's close to the water. You can walk through the neighborhood. The neighbors and people were very polite. Great place to relax and enjoy.
A wonderful home and great experience.
Lisa was lovely to work with. She communicated easily and quickly, and was generous and helpful. The home itself was wonderful. Clean and very well appointed. We stayed for two weeks and loved it. The beds were comfortable, the linen was nice, the kitchen is more than stocked for cooking needs, and everything worked well. The location is also great - quiet but in walking distance to all that historic Swansboro has to offer. And as an added bonus the neighbors were friendly. I would highly recommend.
Second stay with a third stay possible in the future
The cottage is comfortable and located within a very short walking distance from the waterfront. Lisa, the property manager, is very attentive. This year when we had internet speed issues upon check-in, she responded to our emails immediately and came over to troubleshoot the situation.
Swansboro, North Carolina, known as the "Friendly City by the Sea," is a quaint, historic town bordered by both the Intra-Coastal Waterway and the White Oak River.
Swansboro's history began around 1730, when the first permanent settlement was established on the former site of an Algonquin Indian village at the mouth of the White Oak River. In 1783, the colonial port town of Swannsborough was incorporated in honor of Samuel Swann, former speaker of the North Carolina House of Commons. Swansboro has managed to retain the quaint charm and quiet character of a picturesque colonial port while developing its successful fishing and tourist industries.
Quaint shops, boutiques and galleries line Front Street, along the picturesque Intra-Coastal Waterway and as you walk from shop to shop, you're likely to see kayakers and paddle-boarders making their way towards the many scenic beaches along Bogue Inlet.
Whether you love seafood, steak, or think of yourself as a strict vegetarian, Swansboro has a variety of restaurants eager to serve their specialties "made to order" for you.
Swansboro has historical sites to discover and lots of 'family-friendly' recreational activities including parks, concerts, art festivals, etc.
Hammocks Beach State Park is a short, 10 minute drive away. A crown jewel of the North Carolina coast and Hammocks Beach State Park is Bear Island—a three-mile-long, undeveloped barrier island accessible by the park’s passenger ferry, private ferry or by paddling a canoe or kayak. A wide beach between massive dunes and the ocean is interrupted only by primitive campsites and a modest concession/picnic complex. The park’s mainland gateway offers a full-service visitor center and is the launch site for ferry service, canoes or kayaks. Rent or bring your own kayaks, canoes or paddleboards to explore paddling trails leading to marshes, Bear Island or Huggins Island, which is graced with unspoiled maritime forest. Interpretive programs and extensive exhibits teach about park ecology and wildlife including endangered sea turtles and nesting shorebirds.
In the opposite direction, and only 10 minutes away, is Emerald Isle, with some of the most beautiful beaches on the East Coast. It offers excellent, freshly caught seafood, beachcombing, shopping and fun for adults and children alike. (A still primarily undiscovered area, Emerald Isle's beaches are all facing south providing some of the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets to be seen!)
