Beaufort House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8)
BeaufortHouse is on North River with plenty of room - away from the town yet close enough (about 3 miles) to enjoy what beautiful Beaufort has to offer. Large family room looks out on the water, eat-in kitchen and separate dining room which seats 8-10.. Curl up in the recliner in the living room to enjoy a book, away from the gang, or sit out on the screened porch and enjoy the waterfowl and perhaps even dolphin playing in North River. Watch the beacon of the Cape Lookout lighthouse across the river. Bring your lawn games to enjoy, or take a stroll through the neighborhood. Lots of fun things to do in the area and when you tire, come back to a comfortable home, enjoy an outdoor shower, serve yourself a cool drink, put on some music and prop up your feet. Beaufort House is a great place to make memories!

Why Kathy King chose Beaufort
My wife and I had travelled up and down the coast of the two Carolinas for years looking for just the right town. When we spent our first weekend in Beaufort, we knew that we had found our ideal place to have a home. The town was quaint, charming and the locals were friendly. We loved the fresh seafood and the many small coastal villages nearby. Cross the bridge to Morehead City and all the shopping that one could need such as a Wal-Mart supercenter and a new Lowe's home improvement center along with doctors and a hospital are just minutes away. We live near Charlotte and it is long drive but worth it when we get there. All of our family calls it 'Getting the Beaufort lazies'. It is a little less than an hour from the New Bern airport which has flights connecting to Raleigh and Charlotte. If you are looking for place to stay which feels like a home rather than some cookie cutter furnished condo, look no further. This is our home away from home and is filled with the things that makes it feel like our home such as furniure and antiques from our parents. The kithen is my domain and expect to find just about everything that a good cook would want. Our yard faces North River which is a huge bay which leads to the ocean. Stand at the water and you can see Cape Lookout lighthouse. You can fish from the seawall at high tide or call NC Marine Fisheries Dept. to find out where on the river you can dig for clam and oysters at low tide.
What makes this house unique
Relaxing. Enjoying nature. When we want to ride to the Beaufort waterfront for drinks and a nice meal with friends, we call our 'D.D.' (a taxi) and for just a few dollars we are driven home
safely. Away from the hustle and busy streets of town yet only a few minutes away.
Guestbook comments from the owner
I wanted to thank you for sharing your home and tell you how much we enjoyed our stay. Your location was perfect for us as we were traveling the area from Cedar Island to Merrimon to Harkers Island with our realtor some of the time. Such a central location for house hunting and yet wth a quiet setting and beautiful view!! Of course, not without drama as my son cut his foot on an oyster shell on our 3rd day there after all of your warnings. But he had recently had a tetanus shot and we quickly doctored the cuts and now they look quite good. Anyway it was hard to leave and I wish that we could have stayed longer. Maybe next time we will stay longer than one week and I would love to rent with you again (even though our realtor was put off that we didn't rent from her) if you will have us. Thank you again and please feel free to email me anytime if the status of your rental changes.
