Unique waterfront cottage provides comfort and privacy amid the beauty of nature. Ideal for boating, kayaking, fishing and relaxing getaways. Half-hour from Washington, NC. Located between Bath and Belhaven. The Swan Quarter ferry to Ocracoke is a 40 minute drive away.
The Boathouse was built in 1985--originally used as a space to refurbish and build sailboats. It is a wonderfully simple and comfortable structure: 600 sq. ft of interior quarters are nestled inside the 2400 sq. ft. barn that is an outside living and working space.
Boaters of all kinds will enjoy the easy put in, safe harbor and direct access to the waters of North Creek,
the Pamlico River and Sound, and the Intracoastal Waterway. Put your boat over on the 12’ boat ramp at Potter’s Marina, less than 300 yards from the cottage, and secure it in our boat slip for the weekend or week.
1.4 acre private wooded lot with 200’ bulkhead and 20’ x 30’ boat slip. Exceptional views of North Creek to the east and the Pamlico River to the South. Dock with fish cleaning table, water and power. Three kayaks for use with paddles and life vests.
Ideal for fishing, boating, birding--very peaceful with spectacular waterviews. Dolphins swim right past the house!
Explore Bath (oldest town in NC), Belhaven's lovely waterfront (don't miss the Belhaven Museum), Washington's lively downtown and riverwalk (NC Estuarium), take the free ferry to Aurora's Fossil Museum or the longer Swan Quarter ferry to Ocracoke.

We are nature lovers. We love exploring North Creek and the Pamlico River, tracking the dolphins, fishing for flounder, crabbing from the dock, or just relaxing in a rocking chair on the screened porch with a good book.
Michael purchased this cottage in 2005
The Bath/Belhaven area is water, water everywhere! We fell in love with this unique part of NC that most people have no idea exists. Off the beaten path, beautiful landscapes and waterviews, downhome, friendly people.
Life slows down when you stay at the Boathouse. Quiet, peaceful simplicity. Great way to let go of the daily grind and stresses. Explore the wonderful world of eastern North Carolina!
I just want to say my family and I had a wonder time. It was much more than I expected. The weather was really rainy the entire time. So we couldn't enjoy the outside,but we made the best with what we had. Out side the apartment in the barn we had an easter egg hunt , played lots of games and pretended we were camping with sleeping bags. We really enjoyed looking at our grandghildren having a ball. I would highly recommend this place. And I can't forget Michael and Mig . They were wonderful and very accomadating.
This place is Magic! Nestled in what feels like a forgotten area of North Carolina with ultimate peace and quiet. If you want peace and quiet, water, boating, fishing and great accommodations, this is the place.
We spent the weekend Sept. 27th - Sept. 30th, 2013. The Boathouse is a wonderful little place to stay in a very tranquil environment. We fished from the dock and caught quite a few fish. It was very peaceful sitting on the porch in the morning with a cup of coffee admiring the view. The boathouse is very well maintained and super clean. We usually go to Nags Head to get away, but I think we found our new getaway. I didn't miss the sand at all. We will probably take our grandchildren next time. We plan on making a few trips every year.
Just want to start out by saying, EXCELLENT. The few days we stayed was so peaceful. The property was very clean and well kept and had all the necessities we needed.
We did some fishing. Caught a few flounder 1 keeper and a few puppy drum. It was very nice to take our boat and be able to go fishing anytime we wanted.
The Boathouse is a VERY nice place to get away.
My second visit to The Boat House and I have thoroughly enjoyed it both times. The cottage is well equipped and the linens are furnished which is such a plus. Early mornings are spectacular with so many birds singing and fish jumping. Beautiful views. Sitting at the dock and taking it all in refreshes the soul. The surroundings are very peaceful and inspiring.
We had a great weekend! We have two daughters,16 and 10 years old.Caught some fish on the dock, went out on the kayaks, played ping pong, looked at the stars. This is a unique place. The second bedroom camper is too cool. You'll see. The WiFi was great when the girls got tired of nature. I think this would be a great place for someone interested in bird watching also. We couldn't be happier with our experience.
