Property Details

Updated: May 7, 2015
3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

'Bountiful-By-The-Sea is vacation cottage made for Lovers!' We offer special Rates for Couples who desire to have a 'Second Honeymoon' at a beautifully scenic and wonderfully private Waterfront location!

We also cater to smaller Family Vacationers looking for a 'Get away from it all' and get close to Nature time-out!

We are just outside of Town, with complete privacy and relaxation, on 2 very private acres with no close neighbors

Our Waterfront Cottage is located on a wide body of water called the NORTH RIVER... however it is not a river at all, but more like a small tidal Bay located a very short distance from the open Ocean and protected by barrier Islands. You will find a very secluded home that features a 220 ft. Shoreline with a 160 ft. Pier, Gazebo and a 10x30 ft. Dock at the end of the Pier. Great for Sunning, Fishing, Boating, Windsurfing, Swimming... or just watching the Sun go down while having a nice glass of wine.

Please read some of the Reviews our Guests have posted.

The Cottage is bright and airy, immaculately clean and comfortably furnished with a 'beachy' atmosphere. All the rooms have water views! There are 3 Bedrooms each with a Queen size bed, 2 full Baths and an open floor plan with Kitchen, Dining and Living room all together. One of the most enjoyable feature is a spacious Sun room for waterfront Breakfasts... or just lounging while watching the water fowl and occasionally Dolphins, playing in the water.

Breakfast on the Sun Porch is really something very special!

The Village of Beaufort, NC was voted 'America's Coolest Small Town' in 2012... and indeed it still is!

Guestbook comments from the owner

If you have never stayed at Bountiful for your vacation, you do not know what you are missing. It is Heaven on earth to me and my husband. It is so tranquil and peaceful and yet is still within good driving distance of anything you would like to do while on vacation. The fishing is so good and you have the pier to yourself and don't have to fight a crowd. The sunsets in the evening across the water is the most beautiful picture you will ever see, and just reminds you that God creates beautiful things also for us to enjoy.To make your vacation even more fabulous, are the owners, Russ and Brenda. They are the most precious two people you will ever meet and will go out of there way to make everything as perfect for you as possible.This is the place I have searched for all my life and I am so thankful God allowed my husband and I the privilege of finding this place and meeting such great people.Pack your bags and give it a try. You will never regret it, I promise you.

Owners Comments: This is the 7th time Sherry and Will rented from us. They have become 2 of our dearest friends. Many Thanks for your very kind comments.

Perfect get away place

We enjoyed our stay at Bountiful By The Sea! And it lived up to its name. During our week long stay we enjoyed clams, oysters, and crabs that we harvested from right out front. Great place for kayaking and enjoying nature's beauty and relaxing. We highly recommend it. Thanks!

Comfortable, well-equipped, and not far from grocery stores, etc. -- all with the feel of being far from the city. Clean, cozy, great little pier for fishing, crabbing, shrimping. Would definitely come back.

This was by far one of the best vacations we've ever had! Bountiful by the Sea was a perfect place to unwind and just enjoy the beautiful views - especially those wonderful sunsets! We did enjoy going into Beaufort (just a short few miles away) for dinners and walks along the boardwalk. We had our lab Murphy with us, and found a few pet friendly places that allowed us to bring him as long as we ate on the outside deck. Those places would always bring out a big bowl of water for him. We also loved going to the coffee house where you could also sit outside. Since Bountiful is only a short drive from Atlantic beach, we drove there a couple of times too for dinner. All in all we had a wonderful week of relaxation

Wonderful vacation!

Sorry this has taken so long but wanted to be sure to get this review in. What a wonderful stay we had. This house has everything you can possibly need and more. The views are spectacular! Never got tired of the sunsets. There were four adults and our two furry friends. Just can't say enough about this house and setting. We all caught some fish, even 1 baby shark! Also had a severe tornado warning while we were there, and yes received a phone call to make sure we were aware of it and to stay safe. All went well with that. Will for sure consider booking this house the next time we plan a trip to the area. Thank you again for sharing your beautiful home with us.

A wonderful place to kick back and relax!

We had a great time at Bountiful by the Sea! The house was perfect with all the amenities we needed. It was so nice having a place to let our dogs run free without worry of them getting into traffic. Although we didn't catch any huge fish, my boys had a ball reeling in the small spots and croakers, which were plentiful.

The nearby town of Beaufort is nice with plenty of shopping and dining options, and a short drive can get you to Atlantic beach for a day of fun in the waves!

Russ and Brenda were very friendly and had recommendations for dining, fishing, and local points of interest. We will definitely be returning as soon as possible!

Indeed a Saltwater Paradise

What a beautiful place to relax with no worries. Although we had many options to explore the NC coast, we were very happy to just chill at Bountiful most of the time.We did have a chance to go to Shackleford Banks and see the horses.What a treat that was!Fishing and crabbing at the house was what we did the most. The house was super clean and had everything you could want or ask for. Russ and Brenda were very very nice and helpful.Although "Arthur" ran us off a little early, we still had a wonderful time. Our Grandkids had so much fun fishing and exploring along the beach.We wish good health to Russ and Brenda and thank you for everything.God bless.

Owner's Response: Hi David and Bonnie:

We are so glad to know how much you and your family enjoyed Bountiful. I am also very thankful for your help in preparing for "Arthur"...and sad your week was cut short.. We will make it up to you. No damage was done, just the usual yard cleanup.

Bountiful is a perfect family retreat . Just hearing how you spent your week lets us know you discovered the real key to vacationing with family,.

Bountiful Blessings,
Brenda & Russ


From the Owner

We have been coming here every chance we had for 30 years and absolutely fell in love with this area. Beaufort is such a special little coastal town that it is being featured in many Magazines as one of the 'Coolest small towns in America'.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : New Bern, NC at 45 Miles Nearest Barpub : Many in downtown Beaufort at 6 Miles Nearest Ferry : Cedar Island at 33 Miles Nearest Golf : North River Club at 2 Miles Nearest Motorway : Rte. 70 Nearest Restaurant : Great selection in downtown Beaufort at 6 Miles Nearest Beach : Atlantic Beach, NC at 7 Miles Car: necessary

Unhurried and unspoiled historic Beaufort-by-the-Sea is considered a part of the southern Outer Banks located on the Crystal Coast. Beaufort has just been voted the 3rd prettiest Town in NC... it abounds in early American charm with old Sea Captains homes, a Historical district, and a Boardwalk right in the center of town with Sailboats and Yachts moored right along the Main Street. There are several very fine Restaurants, Gift shops and Museums. Blackbeard the Pirate's home is also located here as well as the shipwreck of his famous Pirate Ship 'Queen Anne's Revenge'. Lots to do... you can watch wild Horses graze on the barrier islands... take scenic drives on the Crystal Coast with its unspoiled white sand beaches... visit Down East, Cape Lookout Lighthouse, Harkers Island or drive an incredibly scenic 30 miles to Cedar Island for Horseback riding in the Surf... or take a restful 2 hour Ferry crossing to Ocracoke, and the Outer Banks.
