From the Zillow listing:


It’s that time of the year.  The bass are biting at Lake Mattamuskeet and the summer flounder are on their way here.  Now is the time for family boating, fishing and just great fun in Hyde County.  Unique opportunity to own one of Hyde County’s most notable, old southern homes–the Swindell/Lupton Hotel. Built in the late 1830s, this historical home is situated on a corner lot directly across from the original Hyde County Courthouse in Swan Quarter, NC.
