Morehead City House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Enjoy the summer breezes at this quaint cottage with views of Bogue Sound and close access to all the amenities the Crystal Coast has to offer.
Upon arriving, you'll notice the charm of this 3 BR, 2 BA home. As you proceed thru the front door, you will notice the generous living area with plenty of seating for everyone and your first view of the waterway with Palm Trees swaying in the breeze.
Heading down the hallway, you first arrive at a bedroom which will remind you of cruise ships and days gone by. Hop on the full size bed and just relax. On your left is a full bathroom. Going a little further down the hall, you pass another bedroom on your right with a comfy Queen size bed. It has a fresh airy feel, with crisp sheeting. On your left is a full service laundry area. Continuing directly down the hall and your last stop is the Master Retreat with a King Sized Bed and a Super-Sized shower with Dual Shower Heads. Let me also mention that linens and a generous amount of towels are included with each rental.
Returning back to the Living Room and to your left is the Kitchen with all the items you will need to make your stay comfortable. As you peer over the bar, you see another view of the canal.
Continue heading through the kitchen you come out on the Carolina room which has accommodations for another 2 guests and a couch to read that novel you've been waiting to get to. A great place for the kids to hang out as well.
Coming around the sun porch you head back into the Dining Area where you'll notice the Dining Room Table that is made of reclaimed wood.
As you proceed outside, the porch invites you for morning coffee or a late afternoon cocktail. An outdoor sofa and chairs will let you enjoy the warmth of the sunshine. A nice grassy yard allows the kids to play while the adults kick back and relax.
A trip down the stairs and towards the dock, you land on a paver patio and have a view of the sound that will cause you to immediately relax. Drop a fishing line, cast net or crab pot in the water and you just might have something for dinner.
You also have the option of dropping your boat in the water a few miles away at a nearby marina and your ready to take off for a day of fishing or boating. Plenty of sand bars encompass the area and with Shackelford Banks and Cape Lookout nearby you'll have plenty to do. Bring the boat back to the deep water dock (canal 4' deep)and you can unload all the goodies you've found throughout the day.
Whether a large family or small, you'll enjoy kicking back and relaxing at this home that feels just like yours. Cheers!

About Lynette Schehr
I purchased this home as my job took me away from the coast. I frequently visit the home, but had many requests from friends and family to rent the cottage. I'm an avid boater and enjoy anything about the water and sand.
Lynette Schehr purchased this house in 2004
Why Lynette Schehr chose Morehead City
I selected this home as my vacation home because of it's location both on and off the water. With easy access to Morehead City, Atlantic Beach & Beaufort, I can enjoy all the charm those towns have to offer. On the water, there is easy access to either Bogue or Beaufort Inlet for some offshore fishing and the easy access to Shackleford Banks and Cape Lookout when I want to relax. It's the best of both worlds.
What makes this house unique
Most certainly you will enjoy the comforts of home, but my favorite part is the paved patio area down near the dock. We enjoy the views of the sound and breezes coming up the canal and waving to boaters passing by. A very friendly community.
Guestbook comments from the owner
This home was a delight for our three generation family gathering. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, and coffee on the porch overlooking the canal and dock was a delight! It is in a quiet neighborhood with many birds, including an owl and an egret. The one story floorplan worked easily for our elderly mother who uses a cane and wheelchair.
I was mistaken in thinking the Carolina room is a screen porch. This is the room with two twin beds. I was happy to find it was a fully air conditioned sunroom room off the kitchen.
The dock is very high above the water, over 3 feet even at high tide. We were able to get in and out of our kayak and hobie cat just to the side of the boat lift by a beam that runs closer to the water. The children delighted in swimming from a locked boat ramp within about half a block.
The canal runs into the sound and the intercoastal waterway. We had delightful hours sailing and kayaking both.
We were easily able to body surf in the Atlantic at Fort Macon State Park swimming beach with life guards. We climbed two of three light houses in a day trip to the Cape Hatterras National Seashore. We took the free ferry to lunch at Oriental, the sailing capitol of North Carolina.
The home is also close to Morehead City for convenient shopping. One member of our family works at the cherry point marine base so was able to commute to work and still be together with us at night. It made a great getaway for his family even though just a few miles from home!
Lynette is very responsive, attentive and a good host even though we only met remotely. She provided suggestions and answered all of our questions.
