Washington cabin description

Come experience the simple life in this rustic all wood home that rents from May through September on the shore of the beautiful Pamlico River. Having a Wedding in Washington or nearby Greenville? Family reunion? ECU graduation? Book yourself or your guests here. It's just a 6 minute drive from downtown 'Little Washington' and about 25 minutes from Greenville, N.C. It is approximately a two hour drive from the Raleigh airport (RDU).

Have fun on the huge front lawn throwing a frisbee, a football, or enjoying a game of badminton. You may want to relax on your own private pier and watch the sunsets every night. Hatteras Hammocks between trees await an outdoor nap on the lawn or you can swing in the hammock on the screened-in front porch while others play board games on the long picnic table nearby. This house is situated at the end of one of the unchanged neighborhoods in Washington. It is not only on the River but it is also surrounded by a canal where you can throw in a fishing line. You will need a fishing license! But you don't need a license to relax!! You won't find a place like this on the river. It's rustic and down home. I invite you to come and experience a moment in time where life is simpler and all you need to do is smile.

There are four bedrooms which include 1 King, 2 Twins, 1 Queen and 4 Full beds. Therefore, it can sleep from 8-10 people. Also there are two bathrooms, one with the original claw foot tub!

If you need water toys during your stay, contact McCotter's Marina (252-975-2174) down the road where they've never met a stranger. Ask for Mark Henley and tell him you will be renting my River House. He has jet skis, kayaks, sailboats, motor boats, or a pontoon boat. Look them up online! Don't have a computer? Call me and I will help you contact McCotters Marina.

I am looking forward to assisting you in your vacation time, so give me a call and I will tell you all about the wonderful things awaiting you in 'Little Washington' where history was made and we like to preserve it!
Scroll down the page and see pictures and check out the new feature (Traveler Map & Insider Guide) that lists places to go (all picked out by me ... my favorites!). I get to write my own reviews and I have included my own pictures. So have fun exploring what you can do in Little Washington.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1968

                  About the owner: I spent my teen summers in Washington. I call this place my own personal paradise. There's simply no place like it. The sunsets and quiet nights are worth every moment. When I come to The River I come to a place that takes me back to a simpler time and it reminds me of what's important. I hope you like it as much as I do. You can see where my house is located by the map below. The address is: 1 Shady Banks Beach Road, Washington, N.C., 27889.
