Bertie County, North Carolina boasts a beautiful waterfront along the breathtaking Albemarle Sound that is ready for the right kind of development. As our part of northeastern North Carolina gains attention, demand for vacation homes, marinas, hotels, restaurants, and retail is expanding rapidly.

That’s no surprise, because Bertie County is an unspoiled place that’s perfect for a second home or an active retirement. Our location is especially attractive to the thousands of Americans serving at the Navy’s nearby Norfolk facilities and the Marine Corps base at Camp Lejeune. The men and women who serve there have developed connections with our area and many wish to stay in the area.

Bertie County’s Waterfront area is growing busier, with 9,300 people making their way across the Chowan River Bridge every day. Existing developments like the exclusive Scotch Hall Preserve (with its Arnold Palmer Signature golf course and wealth of recreational activities) are drawing more attention, visitors, and residents. If you’re looking for development opportunities or markets for serving tourists, the Waterfront isn’t the only place to consider. The growing county seat of Windsor and the open land along the Chowan River are ideal sites.

And, if you’re simply looking for a great place to spend your next vacation, we’d like to welcome you. You’ll be surprised at just how much our area has to offer — and we won’t be at all surprised if you decide to stick around.
