Downtown Historical New Bern! 'Higgins Downtown Depot' - The gorgeously decorated industrial rail road-themed home is like a travel back in time, but with all of the modern amenities! Located in the historical downtown New Bern, vistas of the lake, the sizable private backyard, and only being steps away from shopping, coffee, food, and drinks are big highlights of this home, and that is before you get to experience the front or side porch sitting, roast smores in the smokeless fire pit, play cornhole, and watch the train pass right in front of your home away from home! Yes, the train really does run every day right in front of the home (very slowly and only during waking hours!) This multi-level home features tons of added conveniences and additional details (just wait til you see what all is in the kitchen!) as we live up to our company name, A Stay Above The Rest! Full of antiques, photos, and historical family treasures, this home is captivating, to say the least, but is also super kid-friendly with tons of toys, books, and movies supplied to ensure that all kiddos feel welcome and entertained!

You will feel like you are in a Hallmark movie while visiting this pretty town! Don't let the vintage feel fool you, this home has extravagant linens, and exceptional amenities, and is very well-maintained!! Gather around and savor the gorgeous open kitchen and dining area, completely equipped with a Ninja Air Fryer (the best!), Ninja Blender, gourmet food processor, Keurig (with a frother for those lattes/ cappuccinos), a coffee maker, our signature KitchenAid Stand Mixer, plenty of bakeware, dishware, pots and pans, a crockpot, and more! The shotgun-style home offers great spaces to gather around, but you have the option of closing those original double doors to close off each room. Also downstairs is a study equipped with a desk (with a monitor and Bluetooth keyboard and mouse), seating, and a Intelligent TV! There is also a family room with a gas fireplace, a Intelligent TV, a full dry bar with tons of different drinking glass options, and a mixer set! There is also a full bathroom on the main level and we provide salon-quality shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and opulent white plush towels!

All three bedrooms are very roomy and are located upstairs. The first of two primary bedrooms has a king-sized bed with striking linens for an impressive nighttime's sleep (plus sound machines/ alarm clocks in every room!), a comfortable sitting chair, a charming non-working fireplace, and a closet. The 2nd primary bedroom also holds a king-sized bed, a computer desk, a vintage non-working fireplace, and a closet. The 3rd bedroom has two twin beds each with a twin-sized trundle and a enormous rustic dresser plus a very huge closet. There is another full bathroom upstairs with a claw foot tub (handheld shower). The onsite laundry area is off the kitchen, painless to use and we even supply a few laundry pods. We also supply plush 5-star quality white towels, black hand towels for make-up removal, extremely comfortable linens, k-cups, coffee filters, creamer, hot cocoa, spices, a few rolls of toilet paper per bathroom, paper towels, trash bags, and the list goes on (we've thought of it all!)

Taking you back outside, you can appreciate the great outdoors in the various shaded seating areas with seating for your whole group. The backyard provides ample space, shade, lighting for nighttime relaxation or fun, a fire pit with seating around, and fun outdoor toys, including ring toss, frisbee, and corn hole. If you prefer a more adventurous vacation - you're in luck! This home is equipped with four adult bicycles (and bicycle locks) you may use to discover the town or ride through the nature trails. You have fast access to the Trent and Neuse Rivers, Union Point Park (accessible via walking/ bicycle trails), and many other attractions around town. You're also less than an hour's drive to Atlantic Beach where you're able to rent tons of various equipment for water recreation - jet skis, paddleboards, and boats.

Strategies to get the best New Bern rental experience:

Getting the most from your vacation rental budget:

  • In the New Bern area, The earlier your group can book a vacation home, the easier your search will be. The most desirable rental homes are reserved early. Booking your rental property six to twelve months before your travel dates is recommended. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years Eve are excellent times to plan and book your vacation home.
  • To find the best rental home within your budget, we strongly suggest booking in Spring or Fall. You'll benefit from lower rental rates, better selection, beautiful weather and the absence of giant crowds at the beach and popular attractions. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a New Bern vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation near the ocean? Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Years Eve are great times to gather with loved ones at your favorite beach.
  • Owners sometimes offer promotional rates for veterans. It's always a good idea to check with your host or property manager to see if special offers are available for your family.
  • Property managers frequently offer their guests an option to add vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which will generally cost anywhere between 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed trip time as a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel overnight or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance might be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your host for additional information.
  • Often, property management companies supply New Bern area travel guide magazines which often include money-saving offers, either offered directly by local companies, or through a partnership between the rental management company and the business itself. You can also find visitors guide and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

Finding the perfect rental in the New Bern area:

  • Select vacation week and maximum budget.
  • Determine how many beds and what type of bedroom configuration your group needs. 'Higgins Downtown Depot' Walk to Downtown! Bikes, Smokeless Firepit, Equipped Kitchen! has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
  • Specific information about bedrooms and bed types is often accessible on booking websites. If you don't see them listed, call the host before you book your rental. Note that most properties list the max. guest capacity, which oftentimes includes pull out couches in living rooms. You'll need to determine what is optimal for your vacation group.
  • Do your family pets travel with you? Although a number of vacation homes allow pets or animals, guidelines and costs vary per property. Type of pet, size and breeds may be limited. Make sure to ask before booking, and study your agreement! Additional fees or charges applied to your contract.
  • Are you visiting for a single attraction or event? Try a map search to locate nearby rentals.
  • Proper accessibility can make or break a vacation for persons with disabilities. Confirm all necessary amenities are available and included before booking.

Considerations for your stay:

  • Be sure you get the host's contact number and arrival/departure procedures for your rental home.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a garage door opener, television set or appliance. Contact your property manager. They are there to help! A brief text message prevents many issues.
  • Lock your rental home while you're out. Keep your property safe!
  • During arrival, record any damages to the rental property and immediately alert the host. Record all correspondence just in case a dispute arises.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like unpleasant vacationers disrupting your peaceful home. Employ the golden rule for best judgement. Happy residents may even recommend great beaches and scenic spots you would've never otherwise known about!
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Local residents can usually help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to find the fresh catch of the day, have a great night out, or the best spots for fishing?
  • Just prior to departing, complete a final walk-through to make sure you have not forget anything. Make sure to check bathrooms, dressers, and closets for hidden items. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Walk through the property a final time and keep an eye out for damage. We recommend inspecting the property with the property manager whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the manager isn't available, take video and pictures of the property to record its condition.
  • Leave a review! Property owners rely on great reviews to compel more reservations. They'll be much obliged for your review. Alternatively, if something wasn't right, other vacationing families will be thankful you shared your experience and help them have the best future vacation. Please be fair with your feedback If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the owner could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded expeditiously to fix it.
