This tiny house was very cute and clean. Had everything you needed and close to the town of New Bern with lots of things to do.

Our family stopped in New Bern for a night on our way to Hilton Head. We needed a family friendly & dog friendly place to stay. The Gosling was perfect and very clean. Family had a great stay and Jeff is super responsive this will definitely be our mid way stop everytime.
Thank you very much for such a nice review, I am glad to hear that you will be coming back to see us, thanks, Jeff
The Gosling was amazing. Such a cute rental stocked with all the essentials. Outside sitting area is so inviting. Didn’t get to use the fire pit it was ready and available to whomever. The laundry room was a blessing! Everything you could need for a stay was available. We stayed during our road trip. My only regret is that we don’t live closer so we could stay again!
We were only there 12 hours, but what fun it was to stay in a clean, orderly, cleverly arranged tiny house!
It was so good to be back on Brices Creek as my grandparents lived here when I was a child. The fishing with a cane pole and some night crawlers is still wonderful. The tiny house was quaint and nice, but I had real difficulty climbing the ladder to the loft bed. I slept on a very uncomfortable futon as a result both nights. The road noise is also rather loud as Brices Creek road is always busy. Keeping the AC on helps with that. The thing I disliked was that the firepit was kept smoking all day long and the smoke blew my houses way the entire time (rather annoying), so I could not sit outside on the porch, as it was making me cough constantly. Of course, that meant for me, a nice alternative was sitting on the dock fishing or watching the osprey's nest across the creek. When the family renting the grey goose checked in then it was a bit awkward to be sitting on the dock while they were on the porch, but it worked. The creek is beautiful and peaceful. I never saw Jeff; that was not a bad thing. There were some construction workers, but they waited to do things until after 9 or 10am. Jeff's done a nice job with his property. It is a nice place. I would stay again, maybe in the house next door so the smoke didn't blow my way.
Hey Kathy, I am glad that you mostly enjoyed your stay and enjoyed access to Brice's Creek. I wish you would have mentioned something about the fire pit smoke because I certainly could have had one of my staff extinguish the fire while nobody was around the fire pit and when it was not in direct use. Obviously I cannot control the wind direction but I can control putting the fire out in the pit when necessary. Next time you come and stay at one of our rentals please remind me of this and we will take care of it on the spot. I wish I could make the lofts in the cabin easier to access but the ladders are the best that we can do. We actually rebuilt the ladders so that your foot would have a wider flat surface as not to hurt your feet so much if you are only wearing socks or barefoot. Unfortunately loft ladders are the only way to go when you have a lofted cabin. Please come back again, we really appreciated you staying with us. Thanks, Jeff
