“This place takes you by surprise, in the best of ways. “

From the Walter Magazine March Issue

Field Guide: River Dunes

“Do you dream of time “off the grid”?  Yearn for that special place to share a laugh, grill a steak, and have no worries beyond what to grill tomorrow?  My family has found just the spot, not too far down the road, called River Dunes. River Dunes is a boating community nestled along a harbor off Broad Creek where the Neuse River meets the Pamlico Sound. This place takes you by surprise, in the best of ways. “

“You’re likely to fit right in. If you’re craving time away from it all, this is the place: excellent fishing, lovely accommodations, spotty cell service. River Dunes is quiet and beautiful and relaxed – enough to keep every member of the family satisfied. If your priorities are like mine, River Dunes creates the perfect retreat. Rocking chairs, reading lamps, and the wine cork await you.”

“Much more than a Marina…”

From February’s SpinSheet Magazine:

“We were hooked from the moment we passed the first day mark signaling our arrival. We immediately became aware; River Dunes is much more than just a marina…

It is more like a 21st century frontier oasis, idyllically situated in a vast liquid desert where the Pamlico and Neuse Rivers flow into the Pamlico Sound; a winter haven for us that offers year-round boating in plenty of deep, navigable water, with much opportunity for excellent sailing and many destinations to explore. Entering the beautifully protected Grace Harbor, we navigated a set of six perfectly aligned channel markers leading through a meticulously manicured fairway lined with elegant buildings reminiscent of old Charleston-style southern architecture. “Oh my!” Suzanne exclaimed, pointing. “Is that the club house?” We realized that this would be home sweet home for the next month until we began our second leg farther south after Christmas…”
