I will be travelling to the Crystal Coast to check out the area in the next month and would love advice for affordable b&b. I am relocating to the area later in the year, with a 10 year old so schools are a high priority. I want to purchase in a good school district but would love a low maintenance condo or single family with small lot. Any suggestions appreciated.

There are 3 Bed and Breakfasts here in Oriental and 2 allow pets. Although it may seem out of the way, Oriental is just a short, free ferry ride from Carteret County which is The Crystal Coast. Prices this time of year are probably about $100 a night or less.

Beaufort has the most B&B's and here's a link to Crystal Coast B&B's: Bed & Breakfast | Crystal Coast NC | Emerald Isle NC | Outer Banks (http://www.crystalcoastnc.org/accommodations/bedbreakfast/ - broken link)

If you stay in town in Beaufort, the rates are pretty much the same at all of 'em--starting at just over a $100/night. But check out the website for each B&B for specials....

March is still low season, rates will rise around Easter. If you want to stay just outside of Beaufort town, about 1-2 miles from town center, check out County Home B&B, but you'll need to drive to town. Doggies are welcome. It's the former County Poor House lovingly converted!

For staying in town, I love The Pecan Tree Inn for its big rooms and because it's so handy to two of my favorite restaurants--The Beaufort Grocery and The Blue Moon. A half block walk takes you to the waterfront for more eateries, pubs, and strolls along Front Street where you might spot the wild horses across the way or leaping dolphins....neat to stash the car and walk or bicycle everywhere.

April is a wonderful month for a visit, especially when all the azaleas are abloom. March is changeable and exciting.
