New Homes, New Retail Space - Lots of Construction Going On!

The footings are underway for the new Retail/Fitness/Spa/Café facility just across the street from the Harbor Club at River Dunes. The new building will add lots of new services for residents, members and guests with a café bakery, a gift and décor shop, and a full service spa and wellness facility. Along with the Provision Company and the Harbor Club, this building will anchor another corner of the growing Harbor Village.

Along with new construction in the commercial area, a new residential neighborhood is coming out of the ground in the Harbor Village. Just around the corner from the Harbor Club, next to the tennis courts, two new model homes are well underway in the Boat House Row neighborhood. For pricing and other information on this neighborhood, you can contact the Real Estate office at 252-249-0253.

It's really a busy fall as several new custom waterfront homes are also in various stages of completion in Broadwaters and Oyster Point. Keep following our progress as we will continue to post updated photos on the blog!

Transient Boating Season Keeps River Dunes Marina Busy

The months of October and November are traditionally busy ones for Grace Harbor, as many boaters make their way south to the warmer waters of Florida, the Bahamas, and the Caribbean for the winter. The cavalcade of beautiful boats is always enjoyable viewing for owners who live on the Marina or the Channel. One of our home owners recently snapped some photos of one of the larger yachts we've docked this season. Thanks for the pictures - we love getting shots of our marina and guest boats!

Once a boater has spent a night or two at River Dunes, they make it a regular stopping point on their travels north and south. It's become a popular destination on the ICW because of the five star facilities and warm welcome. If you've not stopped here, don't miss us on your next voyage!

Property Owners Homecoming Weekend at River Dunes

Mother Nature provided perfect fall weather and the Harbor Village at River Dunes provided the ideal location for the River Dunes Property Owners Annual Homecoming Weekend.

Festivities began on Friday afternoon with a tour of Heartworks in Bayboro, where owners were impressed with the great work being done for the families of Pamlico County. That evening, a pumpkin-themed dinner and wine tasting inaugurated the new Grace Harbor Provision Company, just across the street from the Harbor Club. Dinner was followed by a magic show that featured River Dunes' own Amazing Andy.

On Saturday morning, owners gathered for the Annual POA Meeting, followed by lunch at the Vanderzyl home.

Saturday afternoon featured a wide array of activities for owners, including a helicopter tour of the property, clay shooting, tennis, a seminar on the history of River Dunes, and an opportunity to look at some of the new homes under construction.

Early Saturday evening, a wine and cheese was held at the Wild home, and the day ended with a traditional oyster roast on the Harbor Club lawn.

It's always a wonderful weekend of renewing friendships, making new friends, and enjoying all that River Dunes offers. We're already looking forward to Homecoming Weekend 2016!

Harborfest for Heartworks was a smashing success!

Last weekend's fund-raiser, Harborfest for Heartworks, held around Grace Harbor at River Dunes, provided a great time for all who attended. The weather was beautiful, the entertainment and food were spectacular, and, most importantly, funds were raised to support the non-profit center that provides services to the children and families of Pamlico County.

The weekend's events started on Friday evening with barbecue and dancing to the band Saltwater Gold. Saturday, throughout the day, live performances were held at the Outdoor Amphitheater. There was also an art show, a classic car show, and live demonstrations of paddleboarding and fishing. The highlight of the weekend was a gala dinner dance on Saturday night, catered by the Chelsea, with live and silent auctions, followed by dancing to the sounds of The Entertainers.

Congratulations to the volunteers, staff, board members and friends of Heartworks for providing such a great event and for all they do for the families of Pamlico County!

The Travels of Liberdade

The Arrington's, slip leasers in River Dunes Grace Harbor, recounted their cruising adventures on Liberdade, a 54' Ocean Alexander Trawler, in the September issue of Passagemaker magazine. We thank them for sharing the great article and their excellent tips for cruisers with us! Read the article.

Bob and Dori share their reasons for choosing River Dunes as their Home Port:

"Dori and I built Liberdade to cruise and live aboard for extended periods during the year, but there are a few times in the year when Liberdade needs a secure marina, which is why we chose Grace Harbor Marina at River Dunes. Located on a well protected basin right off the ICW, River Dunes is one of the best protected harbors on the East Coast. Its location on a deep well marked channel right off the ICW makes easy to get to as well. River Dunes central location in one of North Carolina’s prime boating areas also gives us access to plenty of top notch service facilities near by.

Not to be content with the first class facility they built, River Dunes has also continued to improve, offering new services like the recently begun Grace Harbor Water Sports. The Water Sports group now offers sailing lessons, kayak tours and a complete list of boater’s concierge services. Rich Beliveau and his staff do a great job of keeping the facility in great shape. Whether you come for the beautiful club house, the pool or a secure slip on their floating piers, there is no better place to spend a night or the season than Grace Harbor Marina at River Dunes!"

Thank you for sharing the article and special thanks for the kind words about our marina!

Dragon Boat Races at River Dunes

The day was perfect for racing Dragon Boats at Grace Harbor in River Dunes this past Saturday. Eighteen teams competed in crews of 20 rowers, a drummer, and a steerperson. Teams came from all over the eastern United States, and included a boat of cancer survivors, one of high school students, and several manned by members of the military.

River Dunes was well represented by a group of enthusiastic property owners and friends. They dubbed themselves the River Dunes Dragons and sported custom-designed t-shirts combining the dragon and the River Dunes burgee. Well-wishers lined the docks and the Harbor wall to cheer their teams on. A big Well Done to the organizers, participants and visitors - it was a great event!
