About this Property


Rivershore Retreat on Big Creek - 170 Gertrude Lane, Beaufort NC 28516
Whether you relish fishing, crabbing, kayaking, hunting or just laying on the beach—”Rivershore Retreat” is the place for you! Our beaches are pristine and not busy - laid back and smooth going.....

Come stay with us for a week or a weekend and savor our cloistered area and beaches. BRING YOUR BOAT/KAYAK or use our kayaks- WE HAVE ADDED A BOAT RAMP FOR OUR GUESTS!!!! Depending on length of your boat and the tide you should be able to launch right there!!!! We have a place for you to dock your boat 20 feet from where you lay your head down to sleep! (The beach area in my photos is accessible by about a 10 min. BOAT ride!) Access to beaches and 30 min. BOAT ride across the river to Oriental to adore lunch or an ice cream or just doing the tourist thing. Explore our many creeks and visit Lukens Cemetery. This is a kayaker/sailboaters’ dream! ( I have written instructions in the rental on how to get to a magnificant little beach about 5 mins. from us and you can drive there! So if you don't have a boat - you can still appreciate our pristine beaches!)

If peaceful and solitude is what you are after—this is your place. No hustle and bustle. Modest community life with elegant folks and a church to attend on Sunday morning if you are so inclined.

Read a rent on the porch and just relax! Ride out on “The River” and watch the sunset or just watch it from the porch! We have just finished a new sundeck and screened in porch! It's rather unreal!!!!
Three bedrooms and two full baths mobile home—Recently modernized master bath!! Full kitchen and washer and dryer for your comfort. All furbished with a coastal flair!!! Wi-Fi included and DishTV and land line phone.

We look forward to sharing our utopia with you!

***Please keep in mind that this is a very cloistered place - no hustle and bustle!!!! We do NOT have beach ON our unit - the beach in my photos is accessible by a brief boat/kayak ride.......Just want to make sure that I point this out again!!!!!

Checkout by 11:00 a.m. - check in at 3:00 p.m. unless prior arrangements have been made..........Just call or message and ask!!! We are pretty straighforward to work with!

NOTES***If you are bringing family dogs and cats we charge a nonrefundable pet fee. Please - no more than 2 dogs and cats. NO CATS!
Deposit will be returned if there are no damages. It will be automatically returned in 7 days. We ask that you leave everything like you found it.! We don’t charge a cleaning fee because all of our former renters leave everything great! As long as that’s the case we will continue not to charge the fee. The following will be deducted from deposit in the event of: Excessively dirty- $65 cleaning fee....Excessive dog hair $50.00...dirty dishes $25.00......Trash not taken out and put in outdoor cans...$10.00.......Thank you!

Weather issues are yet another issue for holiday rental owners to grapple with when it comes to potential cancellation requests. Although severe storms are out of our control, it’s fair to offer a refund to visitors when a mandatory evacuation is given.
However, if visitors are just unhappy due to bad weather – sorry – no refund. We cannot guarantee the weather for your trip and as long as you are able to use our home – a refund will not be issued.
If there is a hurricane or tropical storm and the State or County of Carteret order a mandatory evacuation a refund will be given for any unused portion of rent from a guest currently registered, any unused portion of rent from a guest that is scheduled to arrive and wants to shorten their stay and any advance rents collected or deposited for a reservation that is scheduled to arrive during the hurricane or tropical storm.
We will be willing to reschedule your trip in lieu of a refund for a later time if one is available.

No refunds will be given for rain, thunderstorms, snow, etc. ONLY for Hurricanes/Tropical Storms.
