Property description

Labor Day week 9/5-12 ($1995/wk) is still available at discounted rates!!
Carolina Inn My Mind is a unique beach cottage is located in the 4WD Wild Horse area called Carova (this is short for Carolina/VA) Once the paved roads end in Corolla, you will need to switch your vehicle into 4WD, enter this one of a kind wild life sanctuary and drive 9 miles up the beach to reach your destination. The wild horses are free to roam anywhere. That means that you will see them in the morning when you are having a cup of coffee on your back deck, on the beach in the afternoon catching an ocean breeze to stay cool or in the canals in the evening while you are having dinner in your screened in porch. The wild horses are not the only wild life that you will see during your visit to 'Carolina Inn My Mind' We love to watch the Osprey hunting, Heron stalking and fish jumping in the canal.

We will have a tandem kayak available for our guests to use. You will want to explore the beautiful canal system that is truly unique to Carova. Carolina Inn My Mind is also located next to the Wild Horse Park that has a public boat ramp, public dock, horse shoes, volleyball and picnic pavillions. Use our kayak or bring your own watercraft (Seadoo, Carolina Skiff ect..), launch it at the public ramp and keep it secured to your private dock.

Location

This cottage is set in the 4wd or AWD area of the Outer Banks, known as Carova Beach - their are no commercial areas for 15 miles. It is a sparsely populated area with Wild Horses, sand roads & beach driving. Even though this cottage is a very short walk to the beach, you can load up your truck/suv and drive all of the heavy coolers, chairs, umbrellas and drive over the dunes and tailgate on the beach.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are from Coatesville, PA and have been traveling to the Outer Banks for 15 years. Our friend first built a house in Corolla 1995. We stayed there and would take day trips to the Carova Beach area. That is when we decided that we wanted to be there permanently. We were lucky enough to be able to build our first house in 2003 and then to be able to build our 2nd home on the canal in 2011.

Why the Owner Chose Carova Beach:
If you want more to do at the beach then just go to the beach a canal front home is for you. You can fish/crab/kayak from your back yard. This home has a large ground floor decking to enjoy the canal
