Our home is located in the Down East area of Carteret County. We're on the coast, so there's tons of water-related activities!!
Our home is located in the area called Down East, which is part of the Outer Banks National Scenic Byway. The area was chosen due to the natural landscape and, specifically, the community-based culture of the thirteen communities that comprise Down East.
Beach area is within 1/2 mile offering opportunity to savor water sports. Located on the shore of Harkers Island is a nice stretch of beach adored by many locals and visitors. It is very kid-friendly with a elegant shoreline. Parking is limited, so get there early!!
Kayak units are available 1/8 of a mile from our home at Down East Kayaks. Prices are very reasonable. They deliver and pick up the kayaks for you! www.downeastkayaks.com
Cape Lookout National Seashore ferry is within 4 miles. The ferry will take you to Cape Lookout Lighthouse and surround beach areas. You let them know the time you want to return, and the ferry will be at the dock to pick you up! You can choose to go to the Lighthouse side of the park or Shackleford Banks island.
Take food, umbrellas, water and anything else you would like to have with you on the beach. Rest room facilities are available at the lighthouse but the visitors center only sells water and a limited amount of snacks.
Shackleford Banks is home to 130 wild ponies and they are handsome to observe from a distance. Remember - they are wild so follow the rules that are posted on the island.
Core Sound Waterfowl Museum & Heritage Center is located on Harkers Island, roughly 4 miles from our home. The museum contains an impressive collection of Down East history, duck hunting, and culture.
A little further away is Cedar Island Horse Stables. There you can rent horses to ride along the beach. It's a giant hit with the visitors. The drive is about 30-40 mins. from our home but well worth the trip.
You can appreciate our deck with table/chairs facing the back yard.
Space is supplied if you bring along your boat!!
Beaufort, Morehead and Atlantic Beach are within a 30-min. drive. A few of the attractions are Fort Macon State Park, Fort Macon beach area, tons of stores and eateries for you to choose from.
Available at our home is a book containing a thorough listing and description of these attractions as well as local eateries !
