BEAUTIFUL WATERFRONT HOME W/ SLEEPING PORCH ON THE NEUSE RIVER

Minnesott Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Conveniently located between Camps Seagull and Seafarer, the cottage is only 10 minutes away from Oriental, the sailing capitol of North Carolina. A free ferry ride across the Neuse and a short drive will take you to Beaufort, Morehead City, and the world-renowned beaches of the Crystal Coast.

Heaven on Earth!

This is the third year that my extended family has chosen to vacation at Journey's End. Walking into the house immediately takes one back to the lazy, stress-free, days of their childhood. Journey's End has been in Terry's family for generations and she has managed to re-create the old-fashioned, beachy feel of a coastal summer retreat. She even has her grandparents vintage fiesta dinnerware prominently displayed in the kitchen. Don't be mislead in to thinking that she has sacrificed comfort: the kitchen is fully stocked, the linens are wonderfully soft and the internet is awesome. After you use the outside shower once, you will wonder why Terry went to the trouble to install a shower inside. (It's a great, out of the way, place to store your suitcases!) Sit on the sleeping porch and watch the marine traffic on the Neuse. We saw dolphins just about day. The squirrels in the back yard provided us with hours of entertainment. And the concrete dock offered a wonderful place to fish any time of the day or night. The air traffic into and out of the Cherry Point Air Station (just across the river) proved to be fascinating to most of us. The local people are welcoming and helpful. Who knows? One of them might share the location of the "secret" beach where seaglass can be found. As if there isn't enough to do at Journey's End, it takes about an hour to get to Beaufort where you can learn about pirates, see ponies, go shelling and swimming and have a wonderful meal. Don't forget to visit the smallest Wal-Mart in the world in Oriental. (Note: don't confuse this Wal-Mart with the regular one in Grantsboro.) And go have a Pepsi at it's birthplace in New Bern. When you are tired of going and doing, come home to Journey's End, grab a book and take your turn in the hammock. Journey's End is the quintessential vacation destination. Who could ask for anything more?

Owner's Response: Actually the land that Journey's End is positioned on belonged to my Great Grandfather. Journey's End Cottage itself belonged to a tobacco warehouse magnet from Kinston, NC. The owner and his wife did not have children but they loved to entertain. Very fitting since Journey's End has entertained many travelers and friends over the last 20 years. This historic Cottage along with the Minnesott Beach Pavilion were the first buildings in the area to have electricity dating back to the early 1920's.
For more shopping in Pamilico County, the area is rich with small businesses like art galleries, gift shops, antique shops as well as fishing guide/bait and marine shops.

Journey's End is the dream place to be!

What a wonderful week we had! We spend most of time outdoors (fishing off the dock, kayaking, collecting seashells and finding lots of sharks teeth right on minnesott beach!) everything was delightful on the river, every day I looked forward to reading and having coffee on the dock and what I would see happening in the river. We enjoyed riding bikes through little "mayberry" everybody here waves and smiles at you. I had to collect the "giant" NC pinecones to bring back home to make Christmas decorations with. Each day we had glorious weather (Even survived Hurricane Arthur which happened at night, so that didnt take away from our enjoyment of Minnesott Beach and there was no damage! The next day was as if Arthur didnt happen. I was on alert all night "protecting" our family since all my family slept through it! :) The power went out but was so glad it came back on right when we woke up! Terry was so wonderful checking on us making sure all was ok. We loved using the crabpots and for bait we used stinky chicken necks and caught 33 blue crabs! yum! The cottage was so charming and delightful, loved having our breakfast and dinner out on the sleeping porch. We enjoyed the "free" firework show from the dock on 4th of July from the neighbors and you could see more of them all over the river from afar. The dolphins did not disappoint us, they swam by almost daily and even a school of manta's or sting rays passed by once. Those jumping fish (don't know what they are called) were so fun to watch from the dock as they jumped all around us like popcorn out of the water. We loved the joy of family togetherness in this peaceful hidden treasure. It was hard to leave, I didn't want to go home, so we decided to stay an extra night and went to the Croaker Festival in Oriental. That was fun! They know how to have an old fashioned candy throwing parade! Terry is such a pleasant owner of Journey's End and shows great hospitality with the love and care she has put into making Journey's End a place to enjoy and Relax, away from all the busyness and cares of the world. I miss it already! Absolutely we will return!

Home Away From Home

Walking into Journey's End was like walking into home. The cottage is so well-equipped; everything you need (and never knew you would need) is already there. The décor is perfect for a relaxing stay. The whole place was clean and immaculate (I'm one of those people who strips the sheets and checks the mattresses at hotels). The pictures do not do this wonderful place justice! The yards, sleeping porch, and dock was where we spent 99% of our time. Except when we were cooking up the crabs we caught! A few days were spent at Atlantic Beach, Morehead City, and Fort Macon; which are all a short ferry ride and drive away. My parents (in their 60s), my husband and myself (in our 30s), and our 13 year old son all have proclaimed that this was the vacation of a lifetime!!! Terry was always a delight to talk to and answered all my questions and gave us recommendations for dining and attractions. She even called at the end of the week to see if we enjoyed our stay. The first thing I said was "we aren't waiting a whole year to come back"! We loved Journey's End!!!

Owner's Response: Making the most of your stay by taking trips to Atlantic Beach, Morehead, New Bern and Fort Macon is a great idea. There are a lot of areas to explore for day outings from Minnesott Beach. It's nice to know that everything you need is at your finger tips while vacationing at Journey's End Cottage. Spending a day and an evening on the dock is as far as one needs to go when enjoying the Neuse River and it's bounty. I hope that retreating to Journey's End will become your family tradition. Thank you Ruth Ann and family.

Great Vacation Place

  • 5 of 5
The first time I walked into Journey's End I felt like I was home. My second visit was just like coming home after being away for a long time. The house is furnished very nicely with a décor that makes you know you are in a place to relax and have a great time. The view of the river from the back of the house is beautiful, not to mention the sun sets from the dock. The dock provided easy access to the water for my kayaks. I also caught some nice fish off the dock. Terry is great to work with, and will do everything she can to see that your stay is wonderful. The house is located close to Oriental and New Bern. My wife and I will return again for future vacations. This is a great vacation place.

Sheer bliss!

Terry, we walked into Journeys's End and were speechless! Your online photos are lovely, but do not do the home justice. The view is spectacular, but the home itself was immaculate. Not to mention simply charming. You have a gift for color and decor, we did not want to leave. Your coastal living decor is so in tune with the location. I could have sat out on your sleeping porch all day and watched the action on the river. My husband had such a grand time fishing off the dock, then cooking up the catch on the griil. The grounds were impeccable, with blooming azaleas and camilias. The outdoor shower is amazing! How refreshing and fun! We ate in most of the time, mainly because your kitchen is so well equipped! The beds were so comfortable, I haven't slept this well for years! I love to walk, and your neighborhood provides beautiful homes, fun birdwatching, inviting scenery with the river always in view, and friendly locals. Mostly, it was just so relaxing and exactly what we hoped for. It makes sense why you share your creative skilks during the summer with children and teach them your special brand of art .. There are innovative and creative touches everywhere, Can't wait to come back... Thank you, Terry, for anticipating the comfort of your guests and providing all that a relaxing vacation requires.

Beautiful and Relaxing

High school girlfriends convened here for a fun and relaxing weekend. It is the perfect place to take excursions to Oriental and New Bern for shopping and dining. The Minnesott Golf Club is charming and offers great cuisine. Hop on the ferry and visit Morehead, Harker's Island, and Cape Lookout. The sunsets are spectacular, not only from the cottage's pier or cozy back porch but also from the ferry. I highly recommend this weekend retreat as a getaway with your special friends. What more could you ask than to spend time with dear friends in a charming cottage on the beautiful Neuse River!!
