The three-story boutique hotel offers 133 guestrooms, including four waterfront suites overlooking Taylor’s Creek. Recreational amenities include a fitness center and outdoor seasonal swimming pool.

Don Kirkman, Economic Director for Carteret County, said he is seeing a 5.2% unemployment rate and he wants it lowered.
