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.

Granddaughter's Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Just in the moment cottage was easy to find, much cuter than the pictures, and very easy to access. There are kayaks and bikes in the garage that look great although we did not have opportunity use them. Excellent for relaxing winter trip or summer fun on the lake!

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from staying at "Just In the Moment Coastal Cottage." I cannot tell you how much we enjoyed our stay. The cottage is just perfect for a getaway for a couple or for a family. The pictures do not do it justice. It is so much nicer in person & is fully stocked if you want to cook while there. It is close to everything. The cottage has so much "personality" and is so quaint!!! Beautifully decorated with an ocean decor. Our dachshund, Samson, loved the fenced in yard. We are already talking about coming back again. Mickey is a "gem." She was so very helpful and accommodating. She answered all of our questions and gave us alot of information. Thanks for sharing your beach cottage with us!!! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice comments. I am sorry about the wifi. Sometimes it is hard to connect the first time, but once you do, then it is usually not a problem. Tends to connect better in the office the first time. I will include that for future guests!! Thanks, Mickey

Week in Bridgeton

We enjoyed our time in Bridgeton very much. The cottage is completely comfortable and everything you need is there. We loved the sun porch for reading and relaxing. The bed was very comfortable. Plenty of linens and towels available. We would stay again if in the area.
