Coastal Discovery Weekend

There’s no better time to explore than this spring if you’re interested in life on the coast.

The secret is out – Southern Living has named Boathouse Row, our newest neighborhood, an Inspired Community and the village is bustling with new construction that you have to see. Two of the new bunkies and two of the cottages are already off the market.

It is the perfect time to learn more about North Carolina Real Estate. Your Discovery Weekend begins with a sunset cruise on Miss Grace, accommodations in the village, fresh coastal cuisine overlooking Grace Harbor and a mixer with the neighbors. Tour the Community and Homes. Enjoy the newest amenities; lunch on the patio at the new cafe, yoga at the Fitness Center, a massage at the Spa, and concerts at the Pavilion. Come discover if River Dunes is the right place for you.
