I stayed at the Hideaway Cottage for five nights during the last week of July, 2014. It's very cozy and clean, newly renovated, great location only a half-block walk to all the shops and restaurants along the waterfront. Very quiet at night, comfortable mattresses. My nephew and I were there for scuba diving out of Morehead City, and it was less than a ten minute drive to the dock. There was plenty of room in the cottage for the two of us; nephew had the upstairs bedroom/sitting room/bathroom to himself, and I took the downstairs bedroom and bathroom. There would be ample room for two couples, or parents downstairs with two or three kids upstairs. Owner Steve was very welcoming and responsive to all questions. Steve runs sailing excursions on his beautiful catamaran; I took one of his sunset cruises, and it was a perfectly relaxing way to cap off a day.
