Wonderful house, good furniture, good kitchen (gas stove), and lots of outdoor light make for a nice place to stay. The mattresses in the bedrooms could be a bit more comfortable. The fireplace, the surroundings, and home location round it out for a cozy experience. Kudos to Laura for the responsive interaction and information.
After a long drive to the Outer Banks on a cold January night, we were absolutely thrilled and relieved to arrive at such a warm, cozy, thoroughly welcoming house. Our plan was to hang out with some friends for a three-day weekend, cook some great meals, go for a few walks on the beach, talk by the fire, read, and see a few nearby sights. We did all that, and we also managed to squeeze in a quick paddle in the canoe in the creek behind the house. The fireplace was warm, the furniture cozy, the kitchen spacious and well supplied, the bookshelves stocked with an eclectic and discerning assortment of titles, and the art on the walls assured us that we were in the home of people who loved to travel, like us. We were also appreciative that we could bring our dog along. (He loved the place, too.) This is a great neighborhood base for exploring the Outer Banks. There's a Harris Teeter just a few minutes away, plus a great local seafood shack. Duck is just 10 minutes up the road, and Corolla only 30 or so. The "Bathing Beach" down Dogwood Trace is a great place to watch the sun set over the sound. The house has a variety of great porches and outdoor entertaining spaces. Unfortunately, it was too cold for us to hang out there much, but we could easily imagine doing so in the spring or summer. Laura was great, easy to work with, and we were so grateful for our brief escape from work, busyness, and normal life. Hope we can come back soon.
Truly out staying. 10/10. Great accommodation, love the fireplace and the kitchen, open concept and very good social feel. 7 friends and I rented it for a weekend and we were all more than trilled. The master in the basement was our room and we loved it. I would also recommend one of her board games called "things" so funny. Love to go back!
This was an amazing house and we had a great time bringing in the new year. Laura was great to work with and we felt at home the minute we walked in. The weather was rainy and cold but the porch was nice for a sit/coffee on the 60 degree days and the fire in the living room was cozy on the 30 degree days. The area is great and we were able to take long walks despite the weather.
The house had everything and we made great meals in the kitchen.
Clean, comfortable and a great location!!!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Laura's home. It was big enough for a large group but did not feel too big for just my husband and I. The kitchen had everything we needed. It warm and cozy and spotlessly clean. A great place to stay any time of year.
Our first time to the area was cold but still awesome. House was great, took the canoe almost every day. Kitchen had everything we needed for cooking. I couldn't have been happier with the location and plan on coming back again in the summer. Thank you, Laura!
My family and I stayed here over the Outer Banks Marathon Weekend. It could not have been more perfect. The house is beautiful, cozy, and has everything that you could possibly need. I did not realize this when I made the reservation, but the start of the marathon course is just at the end of the street (about a mile away)! I hope to stay here again in the future!
This house is awesome. The location was just perfect for the sightseeing that we did.Had a few cold nights so was very happy to have a fireplace.We were so busy exploring the outer banks that we didn't get to try out the canoe or kayaks, hopefully there will be a next time! The pictures of the house and location don't do the place justice. Loved, Loved, Loved this place!!!! Christi
The house is beautiful and has many windows for viewing the serenity of the water and trees outside. We had a group of varied ages and there was plenty of room for everyone to have their space. We found everything we needed in the kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms. I'm sure I would like to return to this warm and inviting home time and again.
Laura's place is so wonderful. Great times were had by all. The kids loved canoeing and the rope swing when we weren't at the beach. Laura even had hoola hoops! This is a large home with a great open plan and a fantisitc well-stocked kitchen. The chef (or would be chef) will like it. The screened in porch and the hammock by the canal are great for relaxation! Big beds in all 4 bedrooms, and 3 full bathrooms with linens provided. Ididnt have the pleasure of meeting Laura, but she very communicative and available if I needed anything. This place is perfect for both private getaways as well as family weekends. I would love to go back and I would certainly recommend it to you!!
