About Mickey and Kirt 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 and Kirt Chappelle purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Mickey and Kirt Chappelle chose Coastal North Carolina

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.

Great Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the cottage for the month of March. We totally agree with the others that have stayed here, it a great place. But we would like to add something that we didn't see in the other comments: The kitchen is very well stocked with pots, pans, bowls, everything you need. Most places have only a minimal kitchen. The kitchen has a Keurig coffee maker as well as a regular coffee maker, loads of silverware and dishes to make cooking a breeze. We had never had fresh sautéed ocean scallops. B & J has them fresh every day. You cannot buy them like this in any restaurant, and if you cook them at the Cottage, you will never forget them. Enjoy your time at 'Just in the Moment Quaint Cottage' May God bless, G and V Southern Michigan

Quiet and Bright

  • 4 of 5

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.

Just in the Moment Cottage

  • 5 of 5

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.
