Come experience the simple life in this rustic all wood home on the banks of the beautiful Pamlico River. Having a Wedding in Washington or nearby Greenville? Family reunion? ECU graduation? Book yourself or your guests here. It's just a 6 minute drive from downtown 'Little Washington' and about 25 minutes from Greenville, N.C. It is approximately a two hour drive from the Raleigh airport (RDU).
Have fun on the huge front lawn throwing a frisbee, a football, or enjoying a game of badminton. You may want to relax on your own private pier and watch the sunsets every night. Hatteras Hammocks between trees await an outdoor nap on the lawn or you can swing in the hammock on the screened-in front porch while others play board games on the long picnic table. This house is situated at the end of one of the unchanged neighborhoods in Washington. It is not only on the River but it is also surrounded by a canal where you can throw in a fishing line. You will need a fishing license! But you don't need a license to relax!! You won't find a place like this on the river. It's rustic and down home. I invite you to come and experience a moment in time where life is simpler and all you need to do is smile.
There are four bedrooms which include 1 King, 2 Twins, 1 Queen and 4 Full beds. Therefore, it can sleep from 8-10 people. Also there are two bathrooms, one with the original claw foot tub!

When I walked through the front door I felt immediately relaxed. I liked the peaceful surroundings, visiting historic Bath, watching sunsets and picnicking on the pier. I also loved downtown Washington with it's delicious eateries and charm. There seems to be always some kind of entertainment going on. Best of all was sitting on the screened front porch at the house listening to the rain. Can't wait to go back!!
I spent my teen summers in Washington. I call this place my own personal paradise. There's simply no place like it. The sunsets and quiet nights are worth every moment. When I come to The River I come to a place that takes me back to a simpler time and it reminds me of what's important. I hope you like it as much as I do.
