Great location
91% of recent guests who stayed nearby gave the location a 5-star rating.
There are cheaper places to stay in Pamlico County or in the town of Oriental, but none better! You'll be livin' large in your own private, secluded cottage out in the woods with a private dock on Kershaw Creek! Enjoy privacy, a full kitchen, all the amenities of home, and all that nature offers. It's quiet and peaceful here, and the dock is just a few steps down a wooded path -- a beautiful spot to hang out, and the perfect place to launch a kayak!

The space
The cottage sits on just under 5 acres, about 2 mi outside the town of Oriental NC, so it's quiet, peaceful and really beautiful here. Hang out, relax, and see how many birds and critters you can spot. Better yet, go paddling on Kershaw Creek. We'll help you arrange delivery of your kayaks right to the cottage.

Two bedrooms, each with a queen bed, one and a half baths, and a comfy couch to sleep on means there's plenty of room. The kitchen has all you need to brew a pot of coffee and cook your own meals in case you don't want to eat out in beautiful downtown Oriental. Linens and towels are provided. There's DirecTV connected to an old TV, if you want it, WiFi, and cellular service so you can stay connected. We've got everything you need.

Oriental, the sailing capitol of NC, is just down the road, and we're only 10 minutes from the ferry that takes you across the mighty Neuse to the beaches and Morehead City, Atlantic Beach, Beaufort. Kershaw Cottage is the perfect spot for that romantic getaway, for getting some work done, or for the family vacation. It's good to be "out in the county"!

Sorry, but we don't allow pets.

Guest access
You'll have the whole cottage to yourself, and just under 5 wooded acres to walk around. Of course, you're welcome to stroll out to our private dock on Kershaw Creek, and we encourage you to go out paddling on the creek as well. (That's where all the critters are!)

Other things to note
We're happy to act as tour guides. If you have any questions about the area -- we're here to help you. We also strongly encourage you to rent some kayaks and go paddling out on Kershaw Creek. It's a unique and wild experience that is easy paddling -- even of you've never been kayaking before.

Want to check out the neighborhood? Check out all the pics we've posted. It's pretty wild around here. :-)

The restaurants around our tiny little town are sufficient, but pretty basic. After all -- this is "out in the county". If you like to cook, you can freshly caught seafood (often times live seafood) for cooking up at the cottage. There's also a great produce stand we like to go to in the Summer months. Don't worry, we'll tell you where to get the good stuff.

I'm from Oriental NC and specialize in sales and marketing for tech startups. Married for over 20 years, we both like to travel a lot. I like a nice glass of wine, a fresh mug of beer, and a pretty day out on the water. At home I love to paddle around on the kayak and putter around on my little boat - the Ghetto Blaster.
