Discovery Weekends

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. Six of the new bunkies and two of the cottages are already sold, and they are just darling. 2019 kicked off with February Footers and Foundations, and new home plans are on the way.

Enjoy the quiet porches on the creeks, big water on the Pamlico Sound and a Harbor Village that’s welcoming and refined. You’ll sample the newest amenities; Yawl’s Cafe, pilates at the Wellness Center, and a rejuvenating massage at the Spa. Enjoy a guest membership in the Harbor Club; an award-winning Clubhouse designed by Historical Concepts. Take the bikes for a spin or a cruise in the kayaks. Be our Guests and get a feel for the neighborhood.

Discover why River Dunes was named 2018 AMERICA’S HAPPIEST COMMUNITY by Real Estate Scorecard; why Walter Magazine calls us “the perfect retreat”, and the charming details that make River Dunes a Southern Living Inspired Community.
