Come explore the Crystal Coast & southern Outer Banks fro this cottage. Tucked into 40 wooded acres, serene and peaceful views of the Bogue Sound await you here.

Please read the entire listing to avoid confusion, especially the "Interaction with Guests" section.

The space

Two bedrooms with queen beds are available in a curtained off guest suite. Both bedrooms have closets, ceiling fans, nightstands with bedside lights, dressers, and immediate access to the guest bathroom.

The bathroom features a large walk-in shower, and its only downside is the sink is small.

The kitchen, dining room, sunroom, and covered back porch look out to the Bogue Sound. The living room features a large smart TV (but for the foreseeable future the TV will be without cable), a very comfy couch, and several lounge chairs. The kitchen is well stocked, and includes a gas stove, food processor, toaster, coffee maker (although I make coffee with a french press most mornings), and more. The sunroom features wicker couches and chairs for lounging. The house is roughly 1900 square feet, and overall its floor plan is open and spacious.

The back porch is covered, and I can't say enough about the Bogue Sound views. The water draws your eyes constantly in the daytime, and minimal light pollution allows the stars to shine overhead at night.

Guest access

Guests have access to the entire house, with the exception of the master bedroom and master bathroom (unless handicapped utilities are needed), including: the kitchen, washer/dryer room, sunroom, porch, dock, and one space in the garage for a small car or SUV (trucks will still need to park outside).

Free access can be provided to a boat ramp, and the property features plenty of space to temporarily store trailers.

Only the master bedroom is "off limits," but as mentioned access can be made available to handicapped guests or in the event of a dire shower crunch.

Interaction with guests

Bridget (my pup) and I live here year round, and I love hanging out with my guests and guiding them around the area. I work from home, and enjoy cooking for (and with) guests provided they chip in on groceries and depending on my workload (I can't make promises on being able to provide meals).

Other things to note

For handicapped guests, a large wheel chair ramp can be installed (with advanced notice) for ease of access. The master bath features a roll-in shower, which can be made available on request. The guest bath features a walk-in shower, yet the lip is roughly 3 inches high, and could present an obstacle to mobility challenged guests. Once again please let me know in advance if you will be needing these amnesties, as I will need to work ahead of your arrival to install the access ramp.

Eric is a wonderful host and his dog Bridget is very sweet. The cottage is located off the beaten path and opens up to beautiful waterfront views. The place was kept very clean and tidy with much attention paid to details. Eric’s communication was excellent and the description is right on target. I highly recommend Eric and his place. I wish we had more time to stay!

Eric and Bridget were fun, loving, attentive hosts. Very clean and comfy bed. Very knowledgeable of the area. Awesome conversation, sunrise, and overall experience. Would recommend this to pretty much anyone. Thanks Eric and Bridget!

Eric was a fantastic host! He provided us with a list of things to do in the area and some great restaurant choices. He was fun to chat with and Bridget got along well with our pup! I would definitely stay with them again and recommend anyone staying in the area to stay with them.

If only we could offer more than 5 stars. Eric, Bridgette (the dog) and house were wonderful. The pup was sweet to our daughters. The house was clean and comfortable.

"Comfy Crystal Coast Cottage" is simply the perfect description for this beautiful and inviting place to stay. Everything about the home, from its location and its charm, to its truly wonderful host is 100% worth the stay. Eric offers great suggestions for enjoying the area, and he has gone above and beyond to ensure guests have more than they need for a delightful stay (one of which includes his friendly, furry companion Bridget who quickly steals your heart!). Enjoy the wonderful views, the peaceful seclusion from the populated beach front, the meaningful conversation, and the amazing hospitality. Thank you Eric (& Bridget) for a great weekend.

The house and the view were absolutely gorgeous! Eric and his doggie Bridget were the sweetest hosts anyone could ever ask for :) Eric was extremely helpful with recommendations for the area. This was our first experience with Air BNB and because of this amazing experience with Eric it will not be our last. Thank you Eric for everything!

A very pleasant get away site with fantastic views of the sound and comfy porch chairs for a low key vacation. Eric is very helpful with orientation to the surrounding area, musical selections, and technical support for those of us who are less then technologically savvy!

Eric User ProfileEric is a superhost.

Writer of words, coder of bits, fun-loving, and a thinker & tinkerer. I am laid back, adventurous, reserved but mischievous, and quick to smile. I wake up every morning to a hug from the world's greatest four-legged-daughter, and make kick ass coffee to start the day. I read constantly, love music of all forms, enjoy throwing heavy weight around for exercise, and relish meaningful conversations.

Outside of office hours, you'll find me mulling around the farm, tinkering on machinery, scribbling on pages (most of which get thrown away), or banging on an old keyboard.
