Oriental is home to sailors (known as the “sailing capital of North Carolina), artists and fishermen. Walk or ride one of our complimentary bikes to the snug little harbor from your rental and mix with the sailors and view the commercial fishing boats at rest.

Accommodations are available for nightly stays, weekends and vacation rentals.


Fishing On The Neuse River

Oriental is an excellent destination for fishing, and Neuse River Suites is the perfect place to stay during your trip. The waters around Oriental offer quality year-round fishing. No matter the season, you will get hooked fishing the Neuse River! From New Bern down to the Crystal Coast, the creeks, river shoreline, and bays of the Neuse offer a type of fishing that is sure to challenge and excite anyone from the beginner to the pros. If saltwater fishing is your game, you can catch: speckled trout, red drum, rockfish, flounder, cobia, bluefish, spanish mackerel, and albacore. If you prefer freshwater angling, largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill, white bass, and yellow perch are plentiful.

All Things Dragon

Welcome to quaint and charming Oriental, home to, among other things, an authentic forty-foot Chinese dragon. With such a name as Oriental, what other creature could possibly be mascot in this authentic fishing village of less than nine hundred souls?

Originally known as Smith’s Creek, Oriental got its unusual name from the founding father’s wife, Rebecca Midyette. Apparently, Mrs. Midyette found a name board that had washed ashore from the sunken steam vessel the SS Oriental. From that event, this welcoming fishing haven took on its new name and identity to eventually become a North Carolina destination of distinction.
