Picturesque Harker's Island will draw you back time and again to this waterfront cottage. Dock for sitting out in the evening & watching the most gorgeous sunsets or, for tying up your boat after a memorable day of fishing or sightseeing.
Quaint Harker's Island, coastal NC, about 15 miles from Historic Beaufort and Morehead City. Cottage perfectly appointed on Back Sound, with Shackleford Banks across the way and Cape Lookout in the distance! Shackleford Banks is the home of the famous 'banker' ponies. The view from the cottage is amazing. You can sit on the deck and may see porpoises or a sailboat and will see lots of fishing boats, weather permitting.
Island is primarily known as a fishing village. Bring your boat, fishing gear and lots of bait! Or, take a ferry over to Cape Lookout and check out the lighthouse! Then, go across the boardwalk to the beach and enjoy the view or take a dip! Pack a picnic, you will be glad you did!
Cottage consists of two bedrooms and 2 baths. Kitchen is well equipped. Dining room has good seating space. Family room, which includes breakfast area, has lots of glass for enjoying the view. In addition to the two bedrooms, the leather sofa in the family room is a sleeper and the dining room has a single sleeper loveseat. Cottage has central heat and air.

Married to high school sweetheart, Doug. We have one son, Brian, who lives in sunny California.
I sell real estate, (or at least, I try!) Both of us are licensed real estate agents.Doug owns and operates Precision Bldgs, located in Denton.
Back in 1995 we started looking for a place at the coast, taking weekends, working our way up from SC beaches into NC beaches. When we got to Harker's Island, we knew we had arrived. (Doug had been there fishing over the years. I think this was his planned destination.) It works for both of us!
