Pilot Houses are long, one-story buildings separated into large rooms. Each room sleeps up to four in single beds. Each room is separate, private with its own entrance, bathroom and shower.
There is a front porch with Adirondack chairs, an outdoor charcoal grill and sleeping for up to four guests. The bathroom has a dual vanity and sinks, a separate area for the shower and bathtub, and storage for personal items. A chest of drawers and a small armoire is provided as well as a small, dorm-style fridge. Each room is air-conditioned.
The Pilot House faces the Neuse River which provides gorgeous views and quiet, tranquil times on the front porch.
Rooms are clean, well-maintained and furnished with complimentary WiFi.
Pilot House rooms are only offered at Camp Seafarer.
