Beaufort House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2.5 bath house on the water that sleeps 8

BeaufortHouse is our 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath vacation home on North River with 2 double beds, 1 queen bed and 2 twin beds. Located on the water about 3 miles from town in a quiet neighborhood, it's close enough to enjoy what beautiful Beaufort has to offer. The eat-in kitchen seats 4 and the dining room seats 8-10. Curl up in the recliner in the living room to enjoy a book, away from the gang, or sit on the screened porch or deck and enjoy the waterfowl and perhaps even dolphin playing in North River. Bring your lawn games to enjoy, or take a stroll through the neighborhood. Lots of fun things to do in the area and when you tire, come back to a comfortable home, enjoy an outdoor shower, serve yourself a cool drink, put on some music and prop up your feet. BeaufortHouse is a great place to make memories!

About Kathy King

We live near Charlotte, NC on the waters of Lake Norman and are blessed to have two vacation homes - "BeaufortHouse" in Beaufort, NC and "KingsView" in Blowing Rock, NC. As our children grew up and moved away, we began offering both houses to vacationers

so others could enjoy them.

Kathy King purchased this house in 1980

Why Kathy King chose Coastal North Carolina

My husband and I travelled up and down the coast of the two Carolinas for years looking for just the right town. When we spent our first weekend in Beaufort, we knew that we had found our ideal place to have a vacation home. The town is charming and the locals are very friendly. We love the fresh seafood and the many small coastal villages nearby. Beaufort is located about an hour from the New Bern airport which has flights connecting to Raleigh and Charlotte.

If you are looking for a place to stay that feels more like a home rather than some cookie cutter condo, look no further. The large, eat-in kitchen is equiped with just about anything that a cook could want. But, what we love most are the spectacular sunrises over the waters of North River.

What makes this house unique

Private home primed for relaxation. With the gorgeous views and enough room to have our family together for the weekend or a couple of weeks, it's simply our place to make our memories.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to thank you for sharing your home and tell you how much we enjoyed our stay. Your location was perfect for us as we were traveling the area from Cedar Island to Merrimon to Harkers Island with our realtor some of the time. Such a central location for house hunting and yet wth a quiet setting and beautiful view!! Of course, not without drama as my son cut his foot on an oyster shell on our 3rd day there after all of your warnings. But he had recently had a tetanus shot and we quickly doctored the cuts and now they look quite good. Anyway it was hard to leave and I wish that we could have stayed longer. Maybe next time we will stay longer than one week and I would love to rent with you again (even though our realtor was put off that we didn't rent from her) if you will have us. Thank you again and please feel free to email me anytime if the status of your rental changes.

Perfect for the entire family!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we were very happy with the cleanliness of this sweet home on the river. We were only there for a weekend and we were busy during our stay however it was nice to come back to an inviting space after a long day! The porch was lovely and the home was well equipped and met everyone's needs. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home in Beaufort! The Shackelford Family

Perfect for relaxing at the beach

  • 5 of 5

This the kind of place that says "come in relax." Nicely decorated, comfy beds and furniture, well equipped, plenty of room, great screened porch, beautiful view of the North River and the shrimp boats working. What was impressive was how quiet it was, even though the highway was just blocks away, providing easy access to Beaufort, Morehead City, Harker's Island and Cedar Island Ferry.

Peaceful Location

  • 4 of 5

Great location a short distance away from the tourist area of downtown. The home was well equipped, especially the kitchen, and we cooked most meals there. The screened in porch was our favourite room just sitting watching the water and the fireworks for July 4th across the river.

We did eat at Blackbeard's just down 70 and Ribeye's downtown. Both were very good and we'd eat there again. We took the ferry out to Shackleford Island and saw one group of horses but took the first ferry back after half an hour as it was too hot and there was no shade. Took the Cedar Island ferry to Ocracoke Island and enjoyed it very much. The small town of Ocracoke has many tourist stores and a few restaurants but we enjoyed the ferry ride the most.

If you are looking for a quite location, this is the place. Thank you to the King's for sharing their home and also allowing our dogs to join us.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

It's a great get away. Nice view enjoyed being right on the water. In a quiet neighborhood. Nice to unwind in the big tub at the end of the day.

well-equipped, comfortable home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Beaufort House met and in some ways exceeded our expectations. Lots of comfortable furniture, easy access to the town of Beaufort, beautiful view from the screen porch or yard, a well stocked kitchen with great appliances and including "junk drawers" with everything from batteries to tape to Sharpies. Layout makes it possible to hang out together or get away for quiet work or rest. Our only criticism was that at least one chair had a fair amount of animal hair that transferred onto party clothes. Highly recommended!

Nice family getaway spot on the water

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice home located right on the water with wonderful views. The interior of the home is nicely furnished with everything that you could possibly need. Out of all of the vacations rentals that we've stayed at in the past, this is by far the best furnished kitchen. The home owner is easy to deal with and her rental fees are great for this area.
