This cottage has water all around. You wake up to a sunrise view over the Outer Banks & enjoy sunsets right from your backyard. Located at a walking distance from Cape Lookout National Seashore visitor center where you can easily grab a people ferry. Saltwater fishermen across North Carolina have long heard others espousing the joys of fishing the Harkers Island area.

The space
- You can bring your boat, kayak or paddle board here. You will find some of the best kayak trails and boating / fishing opportunities on the coast. -TWO Kayaks available for an additional $150 for the entire stay which includes paddles, jackets, tying lines and rolling wheels - will need to sign liability agreement form.

-The island has a little beach on the sound, but the best beaches are in Atlantic Beach and Emerald Island which are a few minutes away. Be sure to check the maps on the property pictures series. Plenty restaurants, shops, and entertainment for everyone.

-On the island, you will also find a nice pier that you could fish from, with flounders to be found there and other kind of fish, you could also watch boat launching early morning and coming back with fish early afternoon.

-Core Sound and Core Banks also have numerous sweet spots that are home to an abundance of fish, which is why the reward for those with or willing to gain local knowledge. The variety of fish in the waters around Harkers Island is excellent. Flounder are a local favorite and attract many visiting fishermen. Speckled trout are also numerous, and red drum — locally called puppy drum — are abundant in the marshes and along the beaches. At various times during the year, bluefish, sea mullet, Spanish mackerel, king mackerel, cobia and more are found in the waters around Harkers Island.

- You can use the house dock anytime to fish or to simply enjoy the magnificent new. You can also hire a local guide to pick you up on a skiff and come back with plenty fish too cook for diner. Crab traps are available on request.

-A good attraction here is to go down the street to the ferry service and take a ferry to the pristine beach and rent an ATV (six people I think) for the day to drive on the beach ($120 for the entire family). You can also camp there FOR FREE.

-Cedar island ferry is something to see if you want to visit the traditional down east. Or take the Davis 6 -8 car ferry to yet more outer banks old towns. The decoy museum and the WaterFowl museum offer a nice FREE long afternoon of learning about the people of the island. Be sure to say hello to the local decoy carver Mr Davis down on Island Road.

Where you’ll be

Harkers Island, North Carolina, United States

Marina and fishing centres directly on the island and very close for anyone who brings a boat and may need a slip. You can anchor a few feet away from the dock directly at the house, low tide is about two feet deep. You can also park your trailer right at the house, there is lots of room to maneuver. There is a public boat ramp 8 min away at the entrance to the island but not overnight there. There are 3 Marinas with ramps and overnight boat storage to pick from; South side; Cape Pointe Marina, Harkers Island fishing center and North side Harkers Island boating club. They have many services like boat rental and fishing trips so check their websites. I would call ahead to make sure they have space; they get busy during summer. There is a ton of boating and fishing to do you just need to plan ahead.
