THE WILDLIFE

From the front porch, watch as schools of dolphin swim by and the river otters play on the rocks. From the dock you can fish for flounder or drum and even do some crabbing. Bald eagles can often be found when kayaking on one of the many creeks in Pamlico County.

ABOUT THE STALLINGS HOUSE

The Stallings House, a historic waterfront home located in the village of Oriental, North Carolina, is an ideal place for families and friends to gather on vacation. Whether you enjoy sailing, kayaking, fishing, biking or leisurely walks around the town, Oriental has something for you. The wrap around porches on the first and second floor, are the perfect place to relax, unwind and rejuvenate.

Oriental is located in Pamlico County, near where the Neuse River empties into the Pamlico Sound in eastern North Carolina. The river is five miles wide out our front door and it offers great year round sailing and fishing. The town is also intertwined with several small creeks that are perfect for kayaking and canoeing. Oriental offers a wide range of activities including boating, bicycling, bird watching, tennis, a history museum, art galleries, restaurants and specialty shops. Most of the restaurants and businesses, including the local coffee shop, are within easy walking distance of the house.

The Stallings House was built between 1890-1900 and was purchased as a summer home in 1962 by Raleigh surgeon Dr. Lacy Stallings and wife Jacquelyn. The house has six bedrooms, three and a half baths, a large dining room, family room, kitchen, large wrap-around porches on two floors, and an open-plan third floor with five beds. The house can comfortably sleep 20-22 people. It has has been a regular destination spot for church retreats, sailing clubs and family gatherings for over fifty years. In recent years it has also become a popular wedding venue and many couples have exchanged their vows on the front lawn with a river side wedding. The Stallings House is available to rent by the week or weekend.

REVIEWS

  • “Good times, good friends, good food, and in general lots of good fun. No other place in the world (and we have traveled extensively) can compare to the river house and the laid back and comfortable stay that it affords.”

  • “For kids it was paradise. We spent hours roaming the streets by bicycle, and walking the docks to look at the sailboats and shrimp boats. I remember the tin roof and I loved listening to the rain on that roof. So many fond memories of the Stallings house. Oriental was just the perfect escape from the big city.”

  • “My fondest memories of the Stallings House were lots of people preparing meals in the big kitchen, watching a movie in a comfy sitting room, and sleeping with wide open windows with a great breeze! Outside, it was surely sitting on the porch and looking out over the beautiful green grass and water.”
