John & Lucille’s Country Retreat is nestled on 50 acres tucked in the farm lands of Stella, a little village in the center of everything that southeastern North Carolina has to offer. And you are only minutes from the beaches of the Crystal Coast .  

Whether a romantic getaway, a reunion of family and friends, an anniversary, or for out of town wedding guests, you are invited to experience the luxury of a unique vacation farm rental that sleeps 8 people. You will find a commitment to your privacy and everlasting memories amidst quiet luxury.

Not a Bed and Breakfast….much better! When you reserve this home, you will enjoy the entire home and the grounds. John & Lucille’s Country Retreat is beautifully adorned. Take pleasure in sweet dreams as you rest on luxury beds with Egyptian and Pima Cotton linens. Taste fresh fruit from the plum, apple, and fig trees as they ripen. Rest in the shade of mature trees and soothe your senses while rocking on the porch among the old growth azaleas and camellias. Pecan trees drop their nuts each fall, inviting you to crack and eat them as you enjoy sweet Carolina breezes and the spectacular sunsets. Gather round the grape arbor and tease your taste buds with Muscadine grapes.

Spend the day at the beach on nearby Emerald Isle or stroll among the shops and museums of historic Swansboro, Beaufort, New Bern, and Morehead City. The Crystal Coast is an ideal location for fishing, boating, canoeing, kayaking and golf. Return in the evening and prepare your own meals in the fully equipped kitchen, cook on the outdoor grill or dine at one of the many wonderful restaurants in the area.
