If you want to know bit more about Arlington Place from an unbiased, first hand account, then this article is a must-read!  Seems that our little slice of heaven was the perfect setting for work and play for a few of our recent cottage guests who just happen to have a fun new travel website,

Timing is everything in real estate, but for many of us, we’ve learned that there isn’t an exact science to timing this crazy market.  LeAnne & Jim found this out in a big way when their house sold very quickly and they still had a few months before they could move into a new one.

Now temporarily homeless with two kids and a dog, they searched on AirBnB, happened upon our cottage listings and booked the 35 North Cottage at Arlington Place.

Well, from this article, it sounds like they liked it here okay and made many memories along the way.  Here’s a few snippets from “Exploring the Magic in Minnesott Beach, NC”…..

“Just 20 minutes east of the 300 year old historic city of New Bern North Carolina lies a magical coastal gem that mostly only locals know about.

This little treasure, known as Minnesott Beach, is tucked away on the Pamlico sound.  This “off the grid” town is home to less than 600 people, and you won’t find your usual fast food  or high-rise hotels here.

No, this is not a tourist spot that is overrun and overdone.  It’s a little piece of heaven for those that get to experience its charms and natural beauty… a nature and water lovers paradise.”

…”As you meander through the winding and peaceful roads, past the long leaf pines of Minnesott Beach, you come upon Arlington Place.

As you venture in, be sure to stop in the Welcome Center where Becca, Blair, and Peyton will extend an abundance of southern hospitality – this is just a prelude to the beauty that awaits you inside.  Residents and visitors alike take advantage of world class boating, fishing, sailing, and kayaking.”

…”We truly enjoyed our stay at Arlington Place!  We took full advantage of all the amenities they had to offer and hope that you will discover and experience it for yourself.

Although a picture is said to be worth a thousand words, the true magic must be experienced to be felt!  So enjoy one of Eastern North Carolina’s  best kept secrets before the rest of the world finds it!!”

Thanks for sharing the article LeAnne & Jim and good luck with!  We hope that Arlington Place will always be a local escape for you and your family.  And come back this summer, there’s something new to do and explore each season!
