The Sanderling Tiny Cabin Water Access/private Shared Dock

Riverfront cabin in New Bern with patio
Only six minutes to historic downtown New Bern. The Sanderling is a tiny cabin ideal for a couple or a family of 3 or 4. The cabin is nestled on a pine grove lot with access to a SHARED private dock on deep water Brices Creek. Brices Creek flows into the Trent and Neuse Rivers and then out to the Atlantic Ocean. You are encouraged to use one of our kayaks to enjoy the water. Other activities include swimming, fishing, crabbing & boating. Don't miss a chance to cook a s'more over our large fire pit.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE KING BED AND TWIN BED ARE IN LOFTS THAT REQUIRE RENTERS TO CLIMB LADDERS TO ACCESS THESE BEDS. THE LADDERS MAY BE DIFFICULT TO NEGOTIATE FOR OLDER ADULTS, PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES AND SMALL CHILDREN. Also, there are a few other rental units nearby that may wish to use the fire pit and SHARED private dock. Please be respectful of other renters so everyone may enjoy their stay. Overall I believe you will find the property to be very peaceful. The Tiny cabin is private but guests must understand that you must climb loft ladders to access the beds and that THE SANDERLING DOES NOT HAVE IT'S OWN PRIVATE BATHROOM. YOU HAVE ACCESS TO A VERY NICE SHARED BATHHOUSE THAT HAS A FULL SIZE REFRIGERATOR, FULL SIZE WASHER AND DRYER, A SINK, A FULL SIZE TOILET AND A FULL SIZE SHOWER. You also have use of a SHARED dock that is behind The Grey Goose, our 3 bedroom 2 bath waterfront rental home, (off to the side of the Grey Goose not directly behind the house) used by The Grey Goose and one other rental cabin. THE SHARED DOCK CLOSES AT 9:00 P.M. OR DARK WHICHEVER COMES EARLIER. QUIET HOURS ARE FROM 9:00 P.M. TO 8:00 A.M. PLEASE RESPECT OTHER GUESTS.
Rooms open to patios. Bathrooms include showers.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.
