The Beauty of a Story with The Bunk House

By: Mary Cheatham King / 24 Jun 2024

The Bunk House, formerly known as the Carteret County Home, stands as a testament to durability, utility and transformation. Originally built in 1914 as a place to house locals in need, it would later be used to accommodate farm laborers during World War II. One of only three structures in Carteret County listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Carteret Home's newest iteration marks an incredible new chapter for the building's place in our county's history.  

Following a 2024 restoration by SF Ballou Construction and Kinton Interiors, The Bunk House now stands as a 12-suite boutique hotel, where each room tells a story. An easy bike ride or short drive to all that Beaufort has to offer, the charm and convenience of The Bunk House are second to none. 

Whether you're visiting from out of town, booking a staycation or renting out the whole building for wedding guests, retreats, reunions or special events, The Bunk House is a place to relax, unwind and unlock your own story.
