About this Property


Rivershore Retreat on Big Creek - 170 Gertrude Lane, Beaufort NC 28516
Whether you savor 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 simple going.....

Come stay with us for a week or a weekend and adore 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 relish 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 classy 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 astonishing!!!!
Three bedrooms and two full baths mobile home—Recently redone master bath!! Full kitchen and washer and dryer for your appreciation. 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 smooth 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.

Money Saving Rental Tips

  • Search for the official tourism bureau where you want to travel. Most official tourism bureaus will offer you printed guides with deals for rental properties, dining and tours. These guides can provide a great start to your rental search.
  • Are you willing to modify your trip week? The off-peak seasons frequently offer terrific rates on rentals.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Military may be qualified for cost savings. Make sure to ask property manager to see if your vacationing crew qualifies for a price reduction.
  • Some properties are essentially catered to specific vacationers, whether it is oceanside rentals with weekly fishing pier passes, city-center homes with nearby access to shopping or waterfront homes that feature private jetski launching areas. You'll get the most value from a home that most thoroughly satisfies your ideal trip setting, regardless if it costs a bit more.
  • Property management companies and individual home owners generally offer clients an opportunity to buy trip insurance coverage. Trip insurance, which generally costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of the basic vacation rental price, offers visitors reimbursement of their travel costs for any nights missed as a result of personal health emergencies or hurricanes, and additionally ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, such as an unanticipated hotel room stay or extra gas.

It is important to determine what is most appropriate for the party. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are typically available online. Otherwise, speak to the property owner before you reserve the home.

Stick to a Budget

Most rental properties are marketed with a price range. Determine the rate for your desired stay. It might be at the top end of the range. Make certain to get cost-sharing commitments from friends and family before booking a pricey vacation property. One individual in your group will have to be given the task of gathering payments and accepting responsibility for the whole rental price at time of booking.

Its All About Amenities

What property features is your group interested in? Is a screened-in deck a requirement? Are you more enthusiastic about wildlife or night life?
