Kathy and I met at Emerald Isle, NC. We love to golf and fish at the ocean. We purchased our cottage from Rosie's daughters after her passing. Rosie and Kathy were neighbors and friends for over 25 years and together enjoyed the wildlife, golf and quietness River Bend had to offer. Therfore it wasn't hard coming up with the name 'Rosie's Retreat' for the cottage. Kathy was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA but moved here in 1978. I was born and raised in Raleigh, NC and moved here in 2005. Come see why others have fallen in love with 'Rosie's Reteat' and the River Bend area.

Clay & Kathy Hodge

Clay or Kathy Hodge purchased this cottage in 2007

We love River Bend and the River Bend Golf & Country Club has been voted for the last five years the #1 Golf Course in the county. The location is very quiet, loaded with wildlife and very safe. River Bend residents are probably over 50% retirees. In the three years we've owned 'Rosie's Retreat' we've had clients stay and then buy or move into the area. Both winters we have had clients come here to get out of the cold and snow and our worst day, weather wise, we are told equals their best day back home.

'Rosie's Retreat' has everything most people have in their own homes. Screened in porch with gas grill, wood deck and benches for outdoor seating, bicycles, canoe availability, great walking/riding area throughout River Bend, fireplace, kitchen with all the gadgets needed, washer and dryer. When we first opened 'Rosie's Retreat' we stocked the home with all bath, kitchen & laundry needs, including condiments in the fridge so clients don't have to pack and bring those items. All we asked is if you use it up replace it for the next family that arrives (Our form of pay it forward). Oh, one last thing about staying here is all utilities and yard maintenance is included. It is the clients responsibility to get plenty of rest and relaxation and that's an order!

WONDERFUL AND RELAXING!

  • 5 of 5
I recently stayed at Rosie's retreat over Thanksgiving while visiting with my son who is in the Marine Corps and stationed at Cherry Point. The home is lovely and was exactly what I was hoping for! I cooked Thanksgiving dinner for my kids and had everything I needed. Thanks to Kathy for letting me borrow a turkey roaster! The area is very peaceful and close to shopping in New Bern. There is a very nice deck that would be great in warm weather. The beds are comfortable and plenty of linens. Having 2 full bathrooms was a plus! My kids were pleased with the TV/entertainment system in the living room! I will definitely stay here again when visiting!

RELAXING RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We are so happy we found "Rosie's Retreat" as a home away from home, while in New Bern. We felt very safe in the neighborhood, while walking our dog at night and it gave a real feeling of "home". We appreciate that it was pet friendly. It was nice having a full kitchen, and be able to cook while there and the bed was so comfortable! I loved sitting on the screened porch in the morning, having breakfast, watching the golfers and as a bonus, the pilieated woodpecker. And don't want to miss mentioning the friendliness of Clay and Kathy! We feel we made new friends while there. We will definitely want to come back when we visit New Bern.

WONDERFUL VACATION

We had a great week in River Bend. The house had everything we needed and a beautiful view of the golf course. Kathy and Clay were warm and friendly and checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. I would definitely hope to stay here again the next time we visit.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we arrived, this home felt like home. It had everything we needed. Our kids were very happy staying here as well. Having the screen porch in the back as well as a grill, really was a great touch to the evenings there. My husband enjoyed having the golf course in the back as he watch golfers from the great view in the back and managed to get a few games in as well. Although we didn't get to meet Clay and Kathy the owners due to being so busy while we were there, they made sure we knew they were there if we needed anything and every time we spoke with them, they were very friendly and we very much appreciated that. It felt easier dealing with people that were so friendly. so thank you we will be back!!!

RELAXING GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Spent a week in River Bend this past spring at Rosie's Retreat and was very pleased. Wonderful location overlooking the golf course in a very relaxing community. The house was perfect, very clean and had everything we could have wanted and it was a big plus being able to bring our dog. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We highly recommend it. We hope to stay there again soon!!

  • 5 of 5
We spent the last week of August at Rosies Retreat. We had a great time exploring the New Bern area and Outer Banks on our motorcycles during the day, and had a quiet,clean, cozy comfortable place to come home to in the evening. Clay and Kathy were wonderful, very helpful and a joy to talk with..we would definitely recommend Rosies Retreat to our family and friends.
Thanks Clay and Kathy, we had a wonderful time !
