Located on a point in the Roanoke Sound, this distinctive cottage with a coastal watchtower claims almost 360 degree views from the Bodie Island Lighthouse to the south, to Roanoke Island in the west, the Roanoke Sound to the north, and Nags Head to the east. You'll never stay anywhere else after vacationing in this spacious cottage which captures sunrises, spectacular sunsets, and the flickering light of the lighthouse at night. From the expansive porches which surround the house, watch sailboats, jet skiers, kite boarders and wind surfers. Go fishing or crabbing off the dock or the banks just feet from the house. Bring your own or rent a kayak and explore the canals, shoreline, and islands in the sound or bring your own boat or jet ski and enjoy the private beach located nearby. Splash around and cool off in the large 24' salt water pool or warm up in the evening in the 6-person hot tub. You can always find somewhere to spread out and relax in this 5,700 square-foot house with so many amenities on its nearly one acre lot.
Although it is recently built, the Lone Cedar II is steeped in tradition and history. The owner's family moved into the Lone Cedar Club house on this land in the 1960's. Mentioned in David Stick's book on the history of the Outer Banks, the original Lone Cedar was built at the turn of the century as a duck hunting club. This new cottage displays some silverware, plates, and cups from the old Lone Cedar. There is also a barometer which the Norfolk Weather Bureau depended on to chart the location of hurricanes as they passed along the coast. Examine the clay smoking pipes dating from the early 1700's that were dredged up near this cottage. You can't leave without feeling that you have lived some history here.
