This is my husband parents hometown. We came here for a family funeral and was pleasantly surprised when we pulled up. There is about 5 or 6 cottages beautiful appointed near the sound that are up on stilts. When you drive up you can drive right up under the house and park. The outside has beautiful grounds, a seat swing, a bbq grill, and a dock that you can fish out on. When we went up the stairs to go inside and it's a beautiful wooden panelled cabin, with an enclosed porch. It comes Complete with a full kitchen, washer dryer, and 2 bedrooms. The first bedroom had two twin beds. The master bedroom had a queen bed and a twin bed. So in all it does sleep five. The living room had a couch and two recliners. The front enclosed porch had a dining table and chairs, so you get to enjoy your meals looking out on the water. Overall this is a beautiful piece of property with a beautiful view of the water. The cottage is absolutely gorgeous. I want to come back just to come stay at this property again. The owners are very accommodating and so nice!! If you're in Hyde county, stay here! It's the best!!
Awesome views, clean, comfortable and quiet. We stayed for a week during duck season and it was awesome.
I would highly recommend the cottage to all looking for a quiet stay. We booked the cottage for a week after a busy week sightseeing in big cities. Wanted to get away from the city noise, rest and recharge our batteries. The cottages are new and very well equipped, you will find everything you need to call it your home. All appliences are new, there is satellite TV and excellent WI-FI connection.
The location is very remote which we found to be a great advantage. You can kayak, fish, BBQ or simply relax on the dock. However, if you want to go to the OBX beaches and all the activities of Nags Head, Kitty Hawk, they are a short drive away. We found 40 minute drive to be acceptable for a day trip to the beach.
Karen and Dale are fantastic hosts. They went out of their way to make our stay in Engelhard as comfortable and plesant as possible.
We had a great time! Thank you again.
