We are originally from Cape Cod, MA.
Our place offers a little bit of New England charm along with southern hospitality.
Having lived on the Cape for many years, we are used to sandy floors, and guests coming and going. When we bought this beautiful 1920's property in Pollocksville the huge magnolia, the mature pear tree and the little cottage out back were a hidden treasure in this little country town. We bought the property in 2005 and set out to provide needed updates, while maintaining its country charm. The cottage has all new windows and laminate flooring, settled at the back of the property overlooking a large field where the wild life provides constant entertainment.
We have 5 children and 6 grandchildren. We have enjoyed having the cottage available for their visits.
We like to read, garden, swim in the ocean and bike ride. We have chickens and a composting worm farm. We enjoy raw food, sprouting and juicing. We support our local agriculture by shopping at New Bern Farmers Market.
Our hosting style is relaxed. Your privacy and solitude is something we highly value, and we want your stay with us to be memorable and inspiring. We live in the main house on the property and are available if you need us.

The cottage was even better than I expected! Me, My Fiancé and our pup Popeye had an amazing couple of days enjoying the countryside. The cottage was clean, fresh, and full of charming details. I really enjoyed the fresh farm eggs, chocolates on the pillows, and lovely floral arrangements. We woke up to peaceful breezes and sunshine in the gorgeous bedroom, and the bed was so comfortable.
