The cottage is located in a small village just across the Neuse River from downtown New Bern. Just down the street is the new Bridgetown Harbor Marina. This cozy home was built in the 1950's and has been updated with all modern amenities. It has been decorated in a 'shabby chic' beach theme. You can enjoy a sun porch with a Nags Head hammock porch swing and rocking chairs. Perfect for relaxing, reading a good book or listening to music.
You are within walking distance of the river or you can use one of the bikes provided. **New this season:kayaks to use on the river**You will find a covered back deck with picnic table and gas grill to cook your evening meals. Inside, the home has 2 large bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with a full and twin bed. Each bedroom offers TV connected to cable. You will find 2 full baths, a fully equipped kitchen with stove, frig, microwave and dishwasher. The kitchen also offers a breakfast bar where you can eat as well.
There is a beautiful dining room for more'formal' dining with an adjoining living room. The living area also has a flat screen TV for your viewing pleasure. Linens are provided or you may bring your own. There is a washer and dryer available just off of the kitchen. You can also use the office area complete with desk and bookshelves. WiFi can be accessed.
Just across the bridge you can visit historic downtown New Bern where you will find shops, restaurants, marinas and parks. Be sure to check out all the Bears around the city. It is only a 30 min drive to Atlantic Beach and 1 hour from Cape Lookout. An information packet will be available upon arrival to tell you where the many local attractions can be found.
We also have a new property available for rent in New Bern. Please see "Traces of Yesterday" on VRBO (listing number 916547)for that information.

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 and Kirt Chappelle purchased this cottage in 2004
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.
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.
If you enjoy a quiet, safe, people & pet friendly neighborhood, a bright, comfortable home and stroll of just a couple of blocks to view some beautiful sunsets then this is the place for you! The cottage was equipped with everything we needed and even had some thoughtful extras such as kayaks, fishing poles, and bikes to use. The owner was very quick to respond to various questions both before and during our month long stay. The only negative was that you do need to drive to get to New Bern or to a supermarket, etc. however, there is a Dollar General and a gas station nearby for some quick items. The neighborhood looks to be going through a transition and perhaps more retail and dining options within walking distance will be available in the future. Nevertheless, it is a great location, easy to get to New Bern or the beach. Would definitely recommend the Just in the Moment cottage.
We had a restful stay at this charming, very clean, and well furnished cottage. Obviously the owner has a talent for decor; everywhere you looked there was some delightful design element or nick-knack. The kitchen was completely stocked with all the implements you could ever need. The owners were very thoughtful in leaving excellent directions and recommendations so that it was easy to find everything. We came at Christmas and they had so kindly put out some holiday decorations, including a table Christmas tree and a lighted palm on the porch! Grateful for their sharing their very inviting home with us.
Clean, quiet and convenient. The owners were accommodating and kind. I would recommend this home for a relaxed family with a dog. Thank you!
Easy to book. Easy to communicate with the owner. Great experience overall.
Cute house! Everything was just as pictured. It was minutes to New Bern. Loved sitting on the front porch in the mornings. Great place to vacation and great house to stay at!
We had a wonderful time living "in the moment" at the Chappelle's cottage. We felt at home the minute we walked in the door. Everything we needed was right there - the Chappelles have thought of everything a guest might need and provided it. The cottage is in a delightful, quiet neighborhood but with easy access to anything you might want to explore. We can't recommend it enough and hope to visit again soon. Thanks for a lovely week!
