Nestled in the beautiful historic district of Washington, NC, your room with a king-sized bed is in the historic Frank A. Moss House is a four-minute walk to, well, everything -- the Pamlico River, the Waterfront Boardwalk, the Washington Harbor District, and downtown Washington with its quaint shops and restaurants. Also, 4 minutes away from Washington, NC Airport; 30 minutes from Greenville, NC and the ECU Campus; 1 hour away from Swan Quarter and the Ocracoke Ferry.
You will enjoy our home's large wrap around, brick-floored portico looking out onto a quiet garden and manicured lawn that you are welcome to use. Great place to relax and enjoy a glass of wine. There are some great open common spaces in the house including a reading nook in the upstairs hallway just outside your second-floor room as well as a sitting room downstairs. The bed is king-sized your private full bathroom has two sinks. We have a fully stocked Keurig with complimentary coffee and tea available to you 24 hours a day. Also, there is a mini-fridge and microwave for your use just outside your room. Each bedroom door locks. And just a short four-minute walk away is the Washington Harbor District with its downtown shops, restaurants, and beautiful waterfront. And please note: We have a very gentle affectionate indoor / outdoor cat, Milo.
There's a cozy reading nook at the end of the second-floor hallway; a comfortable sitting room on the first floor; a majestic portico that wraps around three sides of the house; and, a back porch on that fourth side. All for your enjoyment and use.

We're happy to make recommendations for restaurants, shops and local sites to visit.
Many people come to the Washington for the beautiful waterfront. There is a public boardwalk that runs along the river and right in front of one of the few Estuariums in Eastern North Carolina. And the quaint historic downtown is only a block away and runs parallel to the waterfront. A master stroke of urban planning!
Linda and I are domestic beasts! Sure we like the occasional trip to some exotic locale, sipping wine out on the beach watching the sun go down over effervescent blue-green water like in the commercials, but for the most part we're pretty happy puttering around the house, around town. We like working towards making pristine this gem of house we were fortunate to have found. That is fun to us. Linda loves working in the yard. Has the greenest of thumbs. If you appreciate cool plants artfully arranged, you could spend your whole first trip to Washington in our yard. A lot to see. My part in support of our yard is purely physical labor. I do what I'm told. And our nest is a (happily) empty one. The four children we have between us are all out of the house -- some flying higher than others, but all flying nonetheless. We have had the full parenting experience, I promise you. Linda's a voracious reader. Two books a week...maybe closer to three. I should know because she get's them all on my account on Kindle so I get an email whenever she buys a new one. We both like Netflix and watch more of it than either of us would care to admit. The upside of that for you is, we can recommend some great series. And we love to hear what fellow Netflix'ers (surely that is not a word) like. So basically, we're pretty average folks who found a really cool place to live and we want to share it. Love to have you come stay.
