Description from manager


Built in 1932, this newly renovated vacation rental cottage rests in the charming historic district of Morehead City. The whimsical 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom beach house features an open floor plan, custom mosaic tiles and thoughtful ocean-themed decor to welcome 7 guests in style. Set within walking distance of the many Morehead City attractions, 'Mermaid Cottage' lets you enjoy the best of the beautiful beaches and charming coastal towns along the pristine North Carolina coast.


Master Bedroom: Queen Bed | Bedroom 2: Twin-over-Twin Trundle Bed | Living Room: Queen Sofa Bed | Loft: Single Bed

Feel your cares melt away as soon as you step through the front door of ‘Mermaid Cottage,’ where the open floor plan, glossy hardwood floors, and colorful furnishings will put you right at ease. This whimsical home promises a delightful coastal vacation for your whole group!

A flat-screen satellite TV and plush couch in the living room are perfect for you to have a movie night from the comfort of your cottage. Just down the 3 stairs resembling ocean waves, built-in bookshelves and a cozy nook allow you to curl up with a good book in the sunshine streaming in.

Test out a new recipe or prepare an old favorite in the fully equipped kitchen. The island offers additional counter space and a breakfast bar where you can pull up a seat to dine before venturing out to explore Morehead City.

Hop on one of the 2 provided adult bikes ride down to the waterfront to watch the fishing boats come in. Stop at one of the delectable eateries there, or buy some of the fresh seafood and try your hand at cooking back at 'Mermaid Cottage.'

When you return, follow the winding river mosaic to the French doors opening to the side entrance yard and fire up the gas grill to enjoy a backyard barbecue.

As your eyes grow heavy, retreat to the master bedroom and crawl into the queen bed as the rest of your traveling companions fall asleep in their own comfortable sleeping spaces to rest up for another day in Morehead City. A loft above the living area offers a ladder, single bed, and safety railing, creating a cozy nook!


'Mermaid Cottage' boasts a great location in the heart of the ‘Promise' Land’ within walking distance of many Morehead City features. The historic port town has easy access to stunning beaches and other great towns to ensure that you make the most of your time here.

Beautiful Beaufort is a neighboring Inner Banks town boasting dozens of maritime supply stores, shops, galleries and acclaimed restaurants for you to explore. Just past Beaufort, the Rachel Carson Reserve is accessible via boat, offering you glimpses of the famed horses and other wildlife.

Also accessible via ferry is the Cape Lookout National Seashore where you can go horse-watching on Shackleford Banks, birding, camping and more along the untouched coastline. Be sure to book your trip through the Island Express Ferry Service which has experienced guides and exclusive access to the protected areas.

Take a step into the past with a visit to Fort Macon State Park, where a perfectly-restored Civil War-era fort, coastal education center and an unspoiled shoreline for swimming live in harmony. On the other end of the barrier island, downtown Atlantic Beach has a lively boardwalk, seasonal events and wonderful public beaches.
