We ask because many guests prefer to use their own due to the COVID 19 issue. If you desire us to furnish linens and towels, just request them when you book with us. We do clean our linens and towels according to COVID guidelines. We lowered our prices to reflect your choice to bring your own. Need linen? No problem linens and towels cost $30 extra. We price this listing without linens. We clean our linens according to COVID 19, but have found many just want to bring their own. We are just 10 minutes away from Historic Beaufort.

Scenic bus tours of Beaufort or boat tours to see dolphins. You can even take a sunset cruise on the Lookout sailboat. If you love the water you will not be disappointed in the activities available.

My wife and I loved this quite pet friendly get away. The property is a great location to unplug, fish, spend time with family and then do some more fishing on the ICW. Property is conveniently located a short drive to historic Beaufort.

About the neighbourhood
Centrally located just off Hwy 101 only a few minutes from the Ocean--Beaufort or Morehead City -a day trip to the outer banks--just far enough away to get away from the busy sight seeing day. When home sit on the large porch and watch beautiful Yachts go by as well as many smaller family boats---if you can bring your fishing pole and walk a few steps the catch varieties of fish and crabs. It is in a country setting in a marina environment. Bring your boat as we have a boat ramp near by..
