Harkers Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms-sleeps 4, 1 full bathroom, 1 outdoor shower

This updated 1950’s Cottage is the perfect basecamp for exploring the Southern Outer Banks without breaking the bank. Located in Smyrna, 8 minutes to Harkers Island, the Cottage is in a great location to access several different adventure options: Cape Lookout, Core Banks, Davis & Cedar Island Ferries, Beaufort, Morehead City and Atlantic Beach. Enjoy central air, a well equiped kitchen with gas stove, outside propane grill & fish cleaning station with ample boat parking and fenced-in back yard that is surrounding by pine, oak, and wax myrtle trees. Hear the screen door shut behind you as you walk barefoot through the dewy grass and across the old dirt road to watch the sunset over the water.Take time to sit a spell out on the large screened porch, enjoying a cool refreshing drink & relaxing with friends and family as the marsh goes to sleep and stars fill the night time sky. Please check calendar for availability.

Watersports: Free public ramps are minutes from the Cottage with access to kayaking, surfing, fishing, diving, sailing, beachcombing, birdwatching. If you don't have your own boat, access is quick and simple via one of the many ferry boat operators. They will drop you off on your own pristine part of the beach and haul all your gear as well (including surf boards) for no extra charge. Rates are reasonable and the captains will give you a history lesson on the way over! Interested in kayaking? You can tackle the 3 mile crossing from Harkers Island to the Cape or spend endless days exploring the many bays, rivers and inlets around Core Sound. Seeking flounder, wahoo, cobia, blues, kings, trout, snapper, puppy drum? You've come to the right place.There are also numerous diving opportunities found in this area, known as Graveyard of the Atlantic. Take your own boat to the dive site, or utilize the services of the dive shops in Morehead City, Beaufort or Harkers Island.

Shopping and Sightseeing: Historic Beaufort by the Sea, just 20 minutes away, has many specialty, antique and curio shops. Spend time on the board walk, people watching or take a boat tour of the harbor or one of the many historical homes. For the lover of history, the Old Burial Grounds, the Maritime Museum and Wooden Boat Building offer insight into the history and culture of this area.Beaufort also has many outstanding seafood resturants. (Fresh seafood is also available roadside, as many fisherman sell directly to the public from their own homes). The Morehead City waterfront, famous for its fleet of deepsea head boats and seafood resturants, art galleries and museums, is just over the bridge from Beaufort. And the NC Aquarium is located in Atlantic Beach.

Or, you may want to take the Cedar Island Ferry and expore the many small communities with varied and colorful histories! Head over to Harkers Island and visit the Core Sound Waterfowl & Heritage Museum or Cape Lookout National Seashore Visitor.

Landsports: A 3 minute drive takes you to the Smyrna recreational fields with tennis, soccer, softball/baseball and basketball courts that are open to the public.

About Mary Barnum

My sister Jeanne and I are joint owners of Sea Grace Cottage. We grew up in Morehead City, but have both moved out of state. We are from a very large family, most of which still live and work in Carteret County. We are both avid kayakers and truly love to be out-of-doors, exploring the natural world.

Mary Barnum purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Mary Barnum chose Harkers Island

We purchased Sea Grace Cottage to have a place for our families to stay and relax while visiting our NC family. The Cottage is tucked away in a very peaceful hamlet but allows us quick access to the salt life that we loved as children.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an absolutely wonderful time. The cottage is so cozy and just perfect for us. We had easy access to all to the internet and we could easily keep updated with work things while being able to enjoy boating and fishing for two days. We met the neighbors who lives on the next street. Everyone was so friendly. Your note book of information was very helpful. I was even lucky enough to see the peacock while packing the car at the time of our departure. Can't thank you enough for sharing your lovely cottage. We certainly will be back!

Another delightful visit to Sea Grace!

  • 5 of 5
This truly has become our "saltwater home away from home"! Settling in is easy and quick. We are very thankful for the large yard as it gives us plenty of room to park the boat and tidy up at the end of day. Great place to take your bikes so that when you're not on the water, you can take them over to Beaufort and Morehead City and bike the historic districts. Morehead City was quite enjoyable by bike with the waterfront with swings and several parks. The cottage was comfortable as always - cooking was great w/ the grill and GAS STOVE (love that stove!). The porch, as always, is where you live - and the new cushions made it extra comfy! Had a wonderful time and look forward to visiting again.

This cottage is beautiful and secluded!

  • 5 of 5
What a place! Lots of history and beautiful energy in this secluded cottage! We even rode at a category 2 hurricane! The owner and neighbors were all super friendly and our dog loved it. We hope to stay again next year and cable TV would be the only thing missing from a perfect week. The cottage is very well suited for cooking and relaxing. The drive to Beaufort and Atlantic beach is easy and there is a great small grocery nearby. Oh! And a grassfed beef farm next door!

Most Relaxing Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5
Sea Grace Cottage was absolutely ideal for me for a much needed getaway with my little dog, Hank. The cottage is adorable and Hank loved the fenced in yard. The neighborhood is rural and quiet -- i. e. peaceful. The Barnum sisters have put together a great guide for the area and I enjoyed exploring Beaufort, Harkers Island, and Down East, but my favorite day was spent on Cape Lookout National Seashore. This place is not fancy but it is quaint and more than met my needs. Heck, these ladies have even provided beach supplies for you! I will definitely be back. Thanks for a great getwaway!

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5
We had a very relaxing time at the cottage. Everything was as described on the website. We had a cookout using the house's gas grill and took a sunset trip down to the end of Harker's Island. It was a wonderful get away.

We love Sea Grace Cottage.

  • 5 of 5
Such a neat cottage with all the privacy. I loved the way it was decorated. If you need a relaxing week away, or don't want to stay in the middle of the "hustle and
bustle " of Beaufort or Morehead, this is the place to be. Lots of activities nearby if
one is interested. Loved sitting on the deck and screened in porch. The hammock - well, what can I say! We are trying to decide how soon we can
get back for another week. Thanks for sharing such a lovely place with us.
Bug spray a must!!!!

Wonderful Winter Vacation on a Budget

  • 5 of 5
We chose this rental because it was a VERY reasonably priced winter vacation rental near the beach. Since it was winter, we weren't expecting great weather, but we surprised when the temperature reach the 60's and made for a really nice weekend. Beaufort was a really nice city only about 15 minutes away, with charming little shops and a neat history of Pirates! Even though our expectations were low, we really enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to another stay when we can actually enjoy the beach and shackleford banks!
