About The River House
The Fort Point River
House is located on a 1.5 acre river bluff about two miles east of historic
downtown New Bern, NC. Originally built as a single-family home with an
in-law apartment, the house was remodeled to accommodate vacation
rentals in 2004. New in 2008 is a 150 foot dock.
Since then the River House has provided many with a wonderful
setting for weddings, receptions, family reunions, weekend excursions,
and yearly vacations. Due to its spacious design almost every room in
the house offers it's own magnificent views of the Neuse River.
Couple that with the two first floor decks, a second floor deck,
and a large all season sun room and the River House is sure to
please every occupant with a beautiful vista of one of North
Carolinas most cherished waterways. There is an owner occupied one bedroom 850 square foot
apartment on site, which is occasionally available
for guest rentals for an additional fee.
Largely due to its commanding position along the Neuse River, New
Bern was chosen As North Carolina's Colonial Capital in the 1700s.
As such, the town and the surroundings area are steeped in over
three centuries of American history. The neighborhood in which
the Fort Point River House rests is a part of the James City portion
of New Bern which was home to a historic settlement of slaves freed
during the Union occupation of New Bern (early in the Civil War).
The freed slaves would go on to create much of the towns leadership
in the fields of education and governance during post Civil War
Reconstruction. Reflecting the History of New Bern itself,
bunker mounds from a fort used for the city's defence during
the Revolutionary War and Civil War eras are still apparent
on the property today.
Complemented by the areas rich history and scenic beauty,
The Fort Point River House is a perfect location for vacations,
wedding receptions and family reunions. Located 2.5 hours
From Raleigh's RDU airport and only four minutes from New Bern's
own Coastal Carolina Regional Airport, the house is easily accessible by
land, air, and by sea.
