Property Description

Hyggelig (hoo-ga-lee) is a Danish word expressing an atmosphere of well-being, comfort, and togetherness: a grand coziness found right here in Marshallberg, NC!

Marshallberg is a peaceful little fishing village on Core Sound with a sense of place and permanence. Marshallberg streets are perfect for dog-walking and biking. Its shallow shores are ideal for clamming, birding, and kayaking. Cape Lookout, Harker's Island and Shackleford Banks are a short boat ride from the Marshallberg boat ramp.

Hyggelig is a 5 minute walk from the harbor, a waterfront park and a boat ramp. With spacious rooms, large windows and wooden floors, the home brings the outside in. Large windows facing the enclosed back porch make the living room feel even larger. The living room features large plank pine floors, a tuned piano, sitting area, game table, and a wood stove.

The kitchen and dining room overlook azaleas and large pines in the front yard. The main bedroom is a suite, sleeping 2 to 6. It has two sleeping areas, a walk-in closet, a large bathroom with garden tub and shower, and access to a large deck shaded by wisteria.

The second bedroom sleeps two and has a full bath and access to the backyard through a sweet little stoop. The fenced backyard is your own private park shaded by pecan, maple,and fig trees. Come home to yourself in Hyggelig!

Nice, clean home! Great location!

We rented this house for my daughter and her bridesmaids to stay at as it was convenient to the wedding venue. The house itself was beautiful and comfortable (even better than the pictures).

Relaxing and comfortable

My husband and I took our granddaughter from Louisiana to the Outer Banks. It was our first visit for all of us even though I am an NC native. We found the horses!

Wonderful place to stay!

The house is much much cuter than the pictures make it look! Owner is super helpful and super sweet. We were there just for weekend for a bachelorette party and there were beautiful flowers all throughout the house (real ones). We had a great time here and would recommend to anyone.

This is an amazing place!

Our whole family had a great time in this rental. Anna was amazing. She has really thought of everything. And this house is a short walk to a little area that has awesome shells! I would definitely rent from Anna again. And the drive from the house to Atlantic beach is beautiful. There are lots to do in this area! I highly recommend this property!... Read More
