Pawleys Island house description

Log-Inn was constructed in 1947. It was one of the first year-round houses on Pawleys Island, which is one of the oldest resorts on the east coast and steeped in history! The house is unique and original and being creek-front, offers a yard with more outside space and privacy than ocean-front houses that hug the sand dunes. It is a large, comfortable home that has been in the same family for 65 years. The salt-water creek and marsh are its backyard and are viewed through all of the rooms on the west side of the house. There are 4 bedrooms, 2 downstairs and 2 up, with a bathroom on each floor. The large den opens onto a long screened porch, complete with rockers for reading, chatting and relaxing and a picnic table for 'outside' dining. There is a brick BBQ grill in the front yard, along with an enclosed outside shower with hot/cold water. A long dock leads to the creek where kayaks, canoes or stand up paddle boards can be launched. Fishing, crabbing and/or swimming in the creek are favorite activities while staying at Log-Inn. The house is especially conducive to bird watching, as numerous species of shore birds and long-legged wading birds visit the creek daily at low tide. And a bald eagle or two are often spotted flying over, and sometimes resting, in a tall pine on an undisturbed wooded lot, owned by the family, that is adjacent to the house. If the beach is calling your name, the ocean is just a short walk away (approx. 1.5 blocks) where swimming, fishing, surfing or simply relaxing, walking and beach-combing await. If you are seeking a bit more action, Myrtle Beach is a mere 30 minute drive up Hwy 17. And last but not least, if you are seeking down-home comfort, serenity and a sense of home away from home, this is the house for you. Bring your kayak, your canoe, your boogie board, surf board or skim board, your bike, roller blades or jogging shoes! There's room for all! Be our guests and start building your Pawleys Island memories by staying at Log-Inn. You might end your vacation feeling like part of the family. We're not just a rental house, we're a family house. Visit Log-Inn on Facebook for more photos and comments. Lower rates and partial weeks accepted during spring/fall months.

Keywords: Rustic, original old Pawleys Island style, creek-front, put your feet up comfortable, 1.5 blocks from the ocean. Free WiFi and long distance.

              There are 2 different rental rates. $1283/week for spring/fall (April/May or
              Sept/Oct) or $1750 for summer (June-August). Each rate includes the $125
              cleaning fee, taxes and a $100 damage/security fee, refundable when the
              property is left in good condition. The damage/security fee + 1/2 the weekly rate
              is required as a deposit to hold the house for rental. Our rental week runs from
              Saturday to Saturday. The house is usually not available during winter months.
              There is no heat upstairs. There is a fireplace but it is not available for use.
              The downstairs has only 3 small gas space heaters.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1947

              About the owner: My brother, sister and I grew up in Log-Inn. It is not your typical 'beach rental' but a real family home. My brother and I still live in the Pawleys area, across the creek from Log-Inn. Our father was a forester who brought us up to love and respect nature and we have encouraged our children and grandchildren to follow in those footsteps. We have family gatherings at Log-Inn whenever we can and enjoy continuing the traditions passed on to us by our parents.

              Why the Owner Chose Pawleys Island:
              Log-Inn was not purchased, but built by my grandfather and a contractor who was a close friend of my father. It was one of the first year-round homes in the Birds Nest section of the Island and was completed in 1947, when Pawleys was truly a 'paradise'.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We get together with family as often as possible and simply enjoy being in the house we grew up in, reliving old memories while creating new ones. Crabbing, fishing, playing in the creek or beach-combing and surfing (those younger than us) are favorite activities. What better way to spend your time, than whiling away long evening hours on the screened porch with family members?
