Beautiful place to stay. A must for anyone who loves the water or just wants to try something different than a hotel room. Close to downtown Beaufort. Thanks Robin and Richard, I plan on returning for another week.

We are delighted that you loved the floating condo! Nothing like staying directly on the ICW and watching all the tall sailboats, yachts, tugs and barges pass right before you. Let me know what week you want this coming year and hopefully you won't have to rearrange your week of vacation because of other bookings like this year! We're very... More

Perfect place to lay your head at night. Comes with the basics and clean place to stay. Best prices during memorial weekend. Enjoyed the breakfast and the two cats that hang out. Felt more like a family room. The AC cannot be adjusted so it was nice to have a ceiling fan in the room so it wasnt too hot.... More

Nothing fancy but very clean and the lady in registration was nice and very helpful. Stayed there one evening before ferry ride to Hatteras. I'd probably try to find some place closer but wouldn't hesitate staying there again.

We stayed there last week for five nights and it was very basic. After a full day on a boat in Beaufort Inlet it had everything we needed, a bed, a toilet, a shower, and an air conditioner. Important for fishing and boating they had a great commercial ice making machine to fill your boat cooler with each morning. The... More

We needed a place to stay for the night near Beaufort, NC. This place is very affordable and was very clean. The staff I met at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. It's a simple place to stay that I would definitely stay in again when passing through that area.

Dog friendly motel that is locally owned and in country. Great location and quick drive to Beaufort and Morehead City and surrounding area.

I was on my way to Morehead City to do some scuba diving, and wanted to stay at an independent place rather than the nondescript chain hotels I often stay at. I booked online the day before, and as soon as I walked into the office, the manager already knew my name without me having given her any information. Check-in... More

We stayed for a week in the winter to work on our sailboat. Very nice staff, helpful and accommodating. Room was very cozy and warm during our cold stay. Not too far from downtown Beaufort. Right on the ICW, which would be really nice to watch the boats in the warmer weather. Looks like a lot of improvements have been... More

Robin made our stay delightful. She was very helpful with where to eat, places to go & things to do. The room is basic but clean and cozy. We were looking for a place we could have our dog. They take pets.
