Where you’ll be

Arapahoe, North Carolina, United States

Spring is here and everything is beautiful. This is a very quiet, coastal community, called The Bluffs, in the pine forests and on the Neuse River. The Neuse River is the widest river in the Americas and it is 4 miles across where we live. Sailing, fishing, motor boating, canoeing, and birding is fantastic everyday.

The Neuse riverfront neighborhood in between the coastal towns of Oriental (10 minutes) and New Bern , NC (25 minutes). We are located in the heart of "summer camp country" and is between four large camps (Camp Seagull, Camp Seafarer, Camp Caroline and Camp DonLee). It is an ideal place to stay when dropping off and picking up your children.

It is also an ideal place to stay to visit the many nautical and historic communities in our area. Both Beaufort, NC and New Bern, NC are over 300 years old. New Bern is the home to Tyron Palace, Tyron Gardens, and the North Carolina History Museum. Oriental and Beaufort and both quaint boating communities. Oriental is the sail boating capital of NC and Beaufort has access to the Shackleford Island wild ponies and the Cape Lookout National Lighthouse. Morehead City and Atlantic Beach are also close by to provide ocean access and sport fishing.

- Minnesott Beach ferry (5 minutes from the Carriage House) offers a free 20 minute ride across to the Neuse River to Beaufort, Morehead City, Atlantic Beach, NC Aquarium, etc. It generally runs every half hour and is super convenient.
- Minnesott Beach Golf and Country Club is just down the street
-Dollar General has the majority of short term needs and is about 3 miles away. Larger grocery and drug stores are found in Grantsboro or Oriental, about 8 miles away.

We REALLY like eating here and the seafood is FANTASTIC.... While in town, be sure to stop at Gary's Oyster Bar, just down the street for seafood. In Oriental, we love Toucan Grill, Silos, and M&M's. While in New Bern, try The Chelsea or Morgan's.

We try to have brochures on events that are happening in the area.... We have lots of happenings and festivals throughout the year.

I am a retired IT professional who loves the outdoors, boating, nature, camping, traveling, grandchildren and quilting. My husband, Bill, is also retired and he loves fishing, crabbing, bird watching and decoy carving. We love to meet new people and introduce them to the wonderful lifestyle in coastal North Carolina.

We love to have visitors but let them have their own space.
