­10 Dogwood Ridge Road Bald Head Island, NC 28461

If you’ve ever visited Bald Head Island, then you know that Middle Island is the place where you will find privacy, solace and an environment to soothe your spirit. Maybe that’s why Nepenthe (pronounced Ne-pen-THAY) is so appropriately named from the Greek term meaning to chase away your sorrows.

This very contemporary home offers a unique opportunity to experience interesting architecture that takes every advantage of the amazing creek views visible from the home as well as a tree-house-like screened porch. At Nepenthe, you will find three bedrooms and bathrooms on the first (lower) floor. It’s a reverse floorplan, so the kitchen, dining and queen primary bedroom with en suite and large soaking tub are on the second floor. Wonderful deck and screened porch.

Nepenthe guests will have access to the Middle Island dock on Cape Creek Road for fishing and kayaking. as well as the private Middle Island beach access.

“Tiffany’s Beach Rentals is a first rate outfit. Tiffany went out of her way to help us with special requests. Nepenthe is a distinctive, private cottage in a terrific creekside setting. It is well equipped and very comfortable.” Stuart – June 2022

“We absolutely loved the house and the charm it had. Lent to a wonderful vacation experience.” Allen – April 2021

“We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. Nepenthe was perfect for our family of 4 and our dog, and would have easily fit more people. We loved the modern, Scandinavian vibe, and the magical marsh/sunset views. Morning coffee on the deck and dinner at the “tree house” table was a real treat. Middle Island is so much fun to explore on bikes and walking. The house has so many big and small thoughtful touches, from incredibly comfy beds and couches to a Nespresso coffee machine. We will definitely return to Nepenthe.” Antoinette – April 2021

“We have rented on Bald Head Island for the last 25+ years and this was one of the top homes. There are great views of the marsh in a quiet location. The reverse floor plan put us all in one place for activities and provided quiet locations for those of us who needed to sleep (ie, the baby). The staff was very helpful in setting up the rental and providing all the information needed to get there. This would be very helpful for first time renters who would be unfamiliar with the ferry and tram transportation.” Don – June 2019 

“Love that house is dog friendly, one of my favorite homes I have rented at BHI.” Adele – August 2018  

“The seclusion with close beach access is hard to beat. The house itself is really cool looking on the inside and outside, and the kids were able to watch TV downstairs while the adults could hang out upstairs. Everybody in our group LOVED this house.” Spencer – July 2018
