About Mickey Chappelle

I relocated to New Bern from VA in 2004, looking for a new adventure. I am a nurse and have 2 grown daughters, a stepson and stepdaughter. I married a wonderful man from my hometown in VA after moving to NC and after much soul-searching, decided to move back to VA to be closer to my family. Together, my husband and I decided this home would make a great place to retire, but since that is a few years away, we decided to update our home and offer to others as a vacation rental.

We have 2 dogs and 3 cats, love working in the yard, traveling, gardening and remodeling projects.

Mickey Chappelle purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Mickey Chappelle chose New Bern

I purchased this home in 2004 and lived there for almost 5 years. I love the area and find it is close to everything, while still being in a quaint waterside neighborhood. It is quiet and peaceful and the neighbors are friendly. When I decided to move back to VA to be closer to family, I knew I wanted to keep the home, hopefully to retire there in the future. I really wanted to be able to have the home available to me and my family whenever we could visit, so vacation rental seemed like a great option. I love the beach and it is close enough to get there within 30 min.

What makes this cottage unique

The name of the cottage, 'Just In the Moment Coastal Cottage' has special meaning to me. I lost my only nephew Justin, (notice the first 2 words!) to melanoma. Justin lived life to the fullest and even though he was only 27, he experienced more in his short life than most do. Because he loved his career as a commercial pilot, you will find a very cool Aviator Bear in the home in his memory. I know Justin would tell you life is best lived in moments and to treasure each moment in time as if it may be your last. That is why I am not waiting to share my home with others. Waiting for 'the right time' never happens. That time is now. I hope you enjoy our home as much as we do.

Home Sweet Home!!!

  • 5 of 5
I was in town for the holiday weekend and my grandmother's birthday. This well-appointmed home was the absolute BEST! After driving, 13 hours, it was truly like arriving to home sweet home. It was comfortable, clean, had linens and info about the area which were all very welcoming! The covered back patio was a big hit; perfect for evening conversations and winding down with a glass of wine. The locale was great; close to downtown New Bern, shopping mall, and lots of great eats. The fully stocked kitchen was very accomdating as breakfast and dinner was served almost daily. All-in-all the experience was awesome and very accommodating. From the owner to the neighbors, they were all very nice , answered questions promptly, and made the experience extremely pleseant. I hope to stay here again on the next trip!

Just like home...

  • 5 of 5
This lovely little nautical themed cottage was the absolute perfect home away from home as we scouted out New Bern and the surrounding area in our quest to learn if this area is our next great adventure and new home. We stayed for a week and had everything we needed in this lovely cottage that felt like a family member's home. We were also able to have our itty bitty companion animal/buddy with us which mattered greatly in our choice of lodging. This special little cottage is truly a sanctuary only minutes away from the tourists of New Bern (which by the way are always considerate and gracious). From the moment we walked in to this haven, we found sweet reminders of life by the sea and that we would do well to slow down, breathe, and enjoy these summer moments. We highly recommend this cottage and give it 5 stars. Oh...riding the bike (one of two in the garage) through town without a helmet (as their is no traffic to watch out for), made me feel like a kid again as the wind blew through my hair. I was transformed and you will be too! Come and stay a spell. You'll be glad you did!

Owner's Response: Wow, what a fabulous review. It made me want to pack up and run there for the weekend myself. I hope you found your next home in the area and will enjoy it as much as I did when I lived there myself.

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5
My family had a fantastic time at Just in the Moment cottage. The house is well appointed with plenty of extra linens and essentially anything you need for cooking/grilling. Our favorite moments were relaxing on the sunroom patio after full days out and about. Very convenient to downtown New Bern and a short drive to other scenic neighboring towns. Also, while not formally handicapped-accessible one of us who primarily uses a walker was able to maneuver in the space comfortably. We would definitely recommend to friends.

Lovely Cottage Home

  • 5 of 5
This bright, clean, comfortable and well-appointed cottage is a charming, river-town get-away. As things heated up in June, we were grateful for the central A.C. and abundance of ceiling fans. Nice front porch for morning coffee and covered back deck for cocktails. The spacious layout has a nice flow, beds are comfortable and the second bathroom is a surprise in a cottage this size. Happy to recommend it for couples traveling together.
