Beaufort County and the Pamlico River are well-known for water recreation that includes sailing, waterskiing, kayaking, and great fishing. What you may not know, is Beaufort County's best kept secret, Eagletrace, a waterfront community located on the Pamlico. What makes it the best kept secret?
- The View. Many consider as Beaufort's most spectacular view of the Pamlico which include a 2 mile view to the northern shore of the river.. From those shores you can see Goose Creek Park down to the left and to the right you can see Bath Creek.
- The Location: While many look to the north in Washington and Bath for their homes in Beaufort County, Eagletrace is located in Blount's Creek, a quiet rural community that avoids all the hustle and bustle even small city life has to offer. Yet, the drive to shopping centers is only 20 minutes away. As one homeowner stated, its 2 more songs I get to listen to on my drive in.
- The Serenity: Probably the best part of the secret is the calmness, the quietness, the stillness, and the peace you get when you stand gazing at the water, walking through the nature trail or just driving through Eagletrace.
"A happy life must be to a great extent a quiet life, for it is only in an atmosphere of quiet that true joy dare live." Bertrand Russell
