About this Property

  • Sleeps 2
  • 1 Bedrooms
  • 1 Bathrooms
  • Private vacation home

This private historic bungalow (c. 1850) is located in the heart of historic downtown New Bern and steps away from shopping, dining, and the waterfront. The bungalow was originally a law office and sits on the property of the historic Coor-Cook residence (c. 1790), listed on the New Bern Architectural Walking Tour.

Guests have access to the entire bungalow- one bedroom with queen-sized bed. Full bathroom. Eat-in kitchen. Separate living room. WiFi. Onsite parking for 1 car.

Please note:
-there is an active train track in Hancock Street. The train comes by most days and some nighttime. It does not blow a horn.
-the bungalow sits next to our family residence which includes two very friendly cats who roam the property.
-guests do not have access to the backyard of the main home; however, the bungalow has its own modest front yard space with a patio table and two chairs.
-both the bungalow and the main home next door are historic structures that require ongoing exterior routine maintenance and repairs (wood rot repair, painting, etc.). Host will make every attempt to limit the disruption this may cause guests, but guests should be aware prior to booking.

Finding the best New Bern rental experience:

How to get the best value:

  • Summer months are the most expensive season along the coast of NC. Booking your vacation home in Fall or Spring is our best tip for saving money on your vacation. Rental rates are lower, and you'll find a better selection of desirable properties.
  • In the New Bern area, The earlier you can book a vacation rental, the better your selection will be. The most desirable properties are reserved very early. Booking your vacation home up to twelve months before your vacation dates is recommended. Holiday gatherings are excellent times to search for and book your vacation rental.
  • Some owners offer special rates for veterans. It's always a good idea to check with your host or property manager to see if rate reductions are available for your group before you book.
  • Property management companies often offer guests an option to add trip insurance. Trip insurance, which costs 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed vacation time as a result of medical-related issues or weather disasters, as well as evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a welcome relief if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your host for more information.
  • Many management companies and vacation rental houses supply New Bern area visitor guides which include special deals, either offered independently by local businesses, or by way of a relationship with the management company and the business itself. You can also find New Bern area magazine and coupon books at local gas stations and shopping centers.

Selecting the perfect rental home:

  • Choose vacation dates and max budget.
  • Determine how many bedrooms and the configuration your family needs. The Cottage on Hancock - entire historic cottage has 1 bedrooms and 1 bathrooms.
  • Specific details about bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is almost always available online. Otherwise, email the property management company before you reserve the vacation home. Remember that most listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds and bunks. You will need to determine what configuration is best for your vacation group.
  • If there's an individual New Bern destination you long to visit, browse homes that are either near by, or those that cater to your requirements.
  • Proper accessibility can make or break a vacation for persons with a disability. Confirm all required amenities are available before reserving a rental.
  • Some rental properties allow pets, and others do not. Acceptable types of dog or cat, size and breeds may be restricted, and added charges may apply. Ask the host about pets before booking.

Some things to know before you go:

  • Be sure you get the property manager's phone number and entry/exit procedures for your rental property. Put the manager's information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • Upon check-in, note any issues with the rental property and immediately contact the owner. Record all correspondence in case a dispute arises.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a fireplace, television set or appliance. Contact your host. They are there to help! A brief phone call can prevent a lot of difficulties.
  • Be a good neighbor. Often times, adjacent homes are occupied by local residents. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking rules can make a stay significantly more pleasurable.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Neighbors can typically help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to take kids for a treat, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for fine dining?
  • Lock your rental property while you are out! Don't let thieves ruin your family vacation.
  • Upon check-out, complete a final walk-through to make sure you haven't forget anything. Make sure to check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Clean the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
  • Leave feedback! Property managers rely on excellent feedback to inspire future bookings. They'll be grateful for your feedback. Alternatively, if something wasn't right, other vacationing families will be thankful you shared your experience find their best vacation home. Remember to be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the manager could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded expeditiously to remedy it.
