This truly has become our "saltwater home away from home"! Settling in is easy and quick. We are very thankful for the large yard as it gives us plenty of room to park the boat and tidy up at the end of day. Great place to take your bikes so that when you're not on the water, you can take them over to Beaufort and Morehead City and bike the historic districts. Morehead City was quite enjoyable by bike with the waterfront with swings and several parks. The cottage was comfortable as always - cooking was great w/ the grill and GAS STOVE (love that stove!). The porch, as always, is where you live - and the new cushions made it extra comfy! Had a wonderful time and look forward to visiting again.
