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 smooth going.....

Come stay with us for a week or a weekend and appreciate 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 enjoy 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 superb little beach about 5 mins. from us and you can drive there! So if you don't have a boat - you can still enjoy our pristine beaches!)

If peaceful and solitude is what you are after—this is your place. No hustle and bustle. Modest community life with appealing 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 astounding!!!!
Three bedrooms and two full baths mobile home—Recently refreshed master bath!! Full kitchen and washer and dryer for your appreciation. All adorned with a coastal flair!!! Wi-Fi included and DishTV and land line phone.

We look forward to sharing our bliss 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 dogs and cats we charge a nonrefundable pet fee. Please - no more than 2 family 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

  • Find the official tourism bureau where you want to travel. Many official tourism bureaus offer tourism guides with special deals for accommodations, dining and attractions. Keep an eye out for these guides and coupon books, because this allows visitors to take advantage of those great attractions at a significantly discounted.
  • Flexible about when you can vacation? Off-peak times provide substantial markdowns.
  • Are you a military veteran? A number of rental companies provide markdowns to veterans and active-duty forces. Be sure to check with vacation rental company to see if your vacationing gang is eligible for a markdown.
  • Some rental properties are basically catered to particular guests, whether it is oceanside homes with weekly fishing pier passes, city-center homes with nearby access to night life or waterfront homes that have private boat launching areas. You'll get the best value from a home which most directly suits your ideal holiday setting, even if it costs a tad bit more.
  • Property management companies and individual rental home owners generally offer their customers an opportunity to buy trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally will cost you between 1% - 5% of the base stay rate, provides vacationers reimbursement of their rental costs for any days missed resulting from personal health-related emergencies or weather, and additionally ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, such as an unexpected hotel stay or extra gasoline.

How to Book a Vacation Home

Some people are shocked to learn how many vacation rentals are offered in Beaufort, NC. Rental home accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of essential research sites like Tripadvisor and VRBO.

The majority of vacation rentals in Beaufort, NC are privately owned and many are represented by well-known local rental management agencies. Owners typically choose management companies to manage advertising and marketing, housekeeping and maintenance.

We have developed a brief guide to help you get the most from your rental experience.

Finding and reserving the best rental property:

Do you think "RIvershore Retreat-Hunting, Fishing, Sailing-Kayakers DREAM!" is the perfect rental for your next getaway? Look over this guide to ensure it fits all of your preferences.

The Earlier You Begin, The Better The Choices

Beaufort, NC vacation homes are reserved many months (and up to a year) in advance. Reserving your rental home 6-12 months in advance is usually recommended, when possible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to plan and reserve your rental..

Select a Village and Time

Oftentimes, the hardest part of preparing for your vacation is choosing where to go, and when. When the big decisions are hammered out, everything else is more straightforward.

Choose a Size

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you need? Try to remember that a lot of rental homes advertise maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in the living room. You will need to determine what is suitable for your party. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are usually available online. Otherwise, contact the property manager before you book.

Establish Your Budget

Make sure that "RIvershore Retreat-Hunting, Fishing, Sailing-Kayakers DREAM!" suits your budget *during your desired dates*. If several individuals or family members are sharing the cost, confirm that each group knows their responsibility and has approved a maximum they are willing to contribute. Normally, just one person in the group will be responsible for making the whole reservation and collecting each party's share.

Create a list of "Wishes" and "Requirements"

What home features is your group looking for? Is a pool mandatory?Do you want a rental with patio lounge? Will the property need to be beach front, in the downtown area, or close to restaurants? Are items like beach chairs, gas grills, umbrellas, beach carts or coolers at your disposal and included with your rental home payment? Gather a list of prioritized "needs and preferences" from your company to help narrow your search to the most appropriate rental.

Accessability

Proper accessibility could make or break a trip for the less-mobile. Be sure to remember and ask about wheel chair access, pool lifts and special equipment needs..

Your Dog Needs a Vacation, Too

Are you or other individuals in the crew travelling with a family pet? Animal policies are different at each property. Read descriptions carefully. Type of animal, size and breeds could be controlled. Don't forget to study agreements and contracts carefully. Extra fees or costs may be applied to your contract.

Searching the Internet

Many websites exist to match visitors with rental owners.. In addition to Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Beaufort, NC local rental homes" for local rental home management companies. In addition to offering exceptional properties, local agencies offer outstanding service..

Negotiate the Price

Re-read the description to make sure the home has everything you need. If it is lacking, the rental management company may know of very similar properties that suit your preferences and budget..

Some rental owners will negotiate rates, and some will not. If the price isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. Off-peak weeks should be negotiable more frequently than peak-season..

Read Through The Contract

Find out which of the following is included in your quoted rate:

  • Power bills
  • Internet
  • Long Distance Phone Service
  • Pool Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning services and housekeeping
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Key exchange
  • Parking Space

Get a total that includes state taxes, pet and other extra fees.

Cancellation Policies

Ensure you understand the cancellation policy prior to reserving. Rental management companies and home owners typically offer their guests the option to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance, which normally costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of your standard vacation rental rate, provides guests with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental costs) for any days missed resulting from personal hospital emergencies or storms, as well as hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unexpected motel stay or extra gas.

Complete the Booking

When everything seems correct, it's finally time for you to sign on the dotted line. Remember that most rental contracts require a considerable rental down payment and/or security deposit to safeguard the vacation rental owner.

Get Contact Information

Be sure you get the property manager's contact telephone number and entry/exit procedures for your vacation property. We suggest storing the contact's details in your cell phone and wallet.

Good job on reserving your rental home! You're on the way to a terrific vacation!

During your Stay

  • Record the overall condition of the rental unit right away. Call the property manager immediately to report your observations. If there is a difference of opinion about legal liability later, having the documented problems and contact attempts will be incredibly helpful.
  • Ask questions. If there is any ambiguity about vehicle parking, rules of the house, house access, swimming pool functions, etc... we advise you ask the rental manager immediately. A phone call can save several hours of hassle.
  • Don't forget to be a good neighbor. . Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking regulations can make a trip a good deal more pleasurable.
  • Ask a local. Residents can frequently point you in the right direction.
  • Remember to protect the rental owner (and your things!) by keeping the property locked up when you are away, exactly like you would in your own home.

At the end of your stay

  • Double-check each space of the vacation property to ensure you've collected all personal belongings.
  • Make sure to walk through the rental one last time and check for damages. We advise walking through with the property manager whenever feasible (this isn't always the case).. If the property manager is not available, you'll want to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you enjoy your vacation? Many rental home websites seek comments after your stay is complete. Owners and rental managers will appreciate your favorable critiques. If something went wrong and they didn't fix it in a acceptable manner, or if the property wasn't as described, you may want to note that in your review.

Learn from your Experience

Did they love their rental? Hopefully this guide helped you find a great rental. Maybe the rental home was not perfect, and you will better recognize how to improve your search for the next vacation.
