Why The Owner chose Coastal North Carolina

First and foremost, welcome to my newly renovated little slice of heaven.

Call My Bluff was built in 1947 and was originally a fish camp. Fishermen came to relax for a week or weekend of fishing and preparing and eating their catch. If you look above the bed in the bedroom, you can see where the stove pipe was vented through the top of the cottage to heat the fishermen. Up until the winter of 2014, the back porch was screened-in exposing the bathroom to the elements. Even though this was the quaint original structure, there were some things that needed to be modified to make this a cottage comfortable for all seasons.

Enjoy the new outdoor shower, private porch with new case windows, insulation and new windows throughout, steps to the 70’ dock below, upgraded furniture, kitchen cookware and flatware, new steps and handrails to the roadside entrance, new shady umbrella for the dining table on the riverside deck and a 32” smart TV with cable and wireless internet.

Bring your book, a fishing pole and some summer beverages, and you should be equipped for your vacation getaway at Call My Bluff Cottage on the Neuse River at Minnesott Beach, North Carolina. If you are single and need a retreat or if you are a couple seeking a romantic getaway, this is for you! For small families, it is a cozy spot if you love the river and relaxing on the screened-in porch, set for privacy and relaxation. Fishermen welcome. No pets please.

The cottage rents for $825 per week, $325 per weekend, and $100 for each additional night. The cottage will accommodate 4. Go to vrbo to view Call My Bluff. Enter the #359773. If you would like to see the larger cottage next to Call My Bluff, go to vrbo and enter the # 245297 to view Journey’s End Cottage which accommodates 8. Journey’s End is the oldest structure along this stretch of the Neuse River. Old but equipped with everything that you need to make a week or weekend vacation optimal.

What makes this cottage unique

Relaxation, fishing, a sunset walk on the waterfront, meals with a view of the Neuse River, kayaking, shopping, and dining in Oriental, Beaufort or New Bern.

If rest and relaxation is what you are looking for, you'll find that here at the Call My Bluff cottage! The moment we walked through the door, all of the everyday stress melted away. Cozy, well-maintained, clean, quaint, peaceful and amazing views are just a few of the adjectives I would use to describe this adorable little cottage! You won't be disappointed!

Beautiful, Comfortable Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

My experience was first rate beginning to end. Terry made all details and communications easy. The house is just lovely and the setting--you cant get much better if you are seeking calm quiet surroundings. Food and entertainment are not too far away. The house contains everything you could want if you plan to stay in. I will stay again.

Relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Terry, As always we had a great time. The cousins stayed at Journey's End and we were in Call My Bluff. One of the cousins took a kayak at and paddled upstream with the dolphins!! Needless to say it was the highlight of his week.... I saw a couple of hummingbirds and thought about buying a feeder. I did get a sock feeder for the finches. :) Watching the river was so relaxing that we didn't want to leave....we just know we'll be back again.

Relaxing and Unique Retreat for Mother-Daughter Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I went to this beautiful retreat for a Mother's Day weekend getaway. We could not have asked for anything better! The view from above the bluff is unique and makes it seem as if you are floating above the water. The charming nautical and rustic touches made it seem like we had stepped back in time, but with all the conveniences of the modern world (without any of the stress!). The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we could have needed and all the furniture was comfortable and inviting. Although the bathroom was located in the enclosed porch, that was just another touch that added to the uniqueness of the cottage! We loved the original touches from the fisherman's cabin, such as the hardwood floors, exposed beams, and original hardware. Terry was a joy to communicate with and made sure we had everything we could possibly need, including recommendations for places to dine and fun outings to experience around the area. Our favorite activity at the cottage was sitting in the screened in porch and on the bluff, enjoying the view of the water as we talked and read.

This was my second time enjoying the relaxing experience of staying at Call my Bluff. The first time I went with my husband for a second honeymoon and it was just as perfect as this time! For a romantic weekend or a mother-daughter weekend, you could not ask for anything better. Call My Bluff will always hold a special place in my heart and I cannot wait to return!
