"CEDAR SUNRISE" cottage is a quaint, clean, and very comfortable, two bedroom and a fully air conditioned & heated sleeping porch, one bathroom, waterfront cottage on Cedar Island, NC. It has all of the comforts of home. We do ask that you leave your cigarettes and pets outside.
Cedar Island is a small, quiet, fishing village. It is an island with beautiful views of the water, the Outer Banks, and the abundant wildlife, not to mention the sunrises! Cedar Island is an outdoor person's paradise with boating, fishing, swimming, horseback riding, duck hunting (in season), Outer Banks exploring, and bird watching to name a few.
There are horse stables and rentals on the island for beach trail rides. There is a National Wildlife Refuge on the island for bird watching. There are numerous neighboring Audubon controlled islands also for bird watching. And just minutes away by boat are ocean inlets and the Cape Lookout National Seashore. There is a fishing and hunting guide service on the island. There is a great fish market to buy the day's catch for dinner or there is a great seafood restaurant where you can watch the ferries come and go. In the evenings, relax on the screen porch, deck, or dock, and watch the shrimp boats head out for the evening and return again in the morning.
For attractions off the island, you can take the Cedar Island - Ocracoke Ferry to Ocracoke and the Outer Banks. Or you can head off to the historic towns of Beaufort (about 45 miles) or New Bern (about 65 miles). "CEDAR SUNRISE" is truly our family's paradise and home away from home.
