What makes this House unique
Enjoy the awe inspiring sunsets every night. Relax during the day on your dock. Explore the neighborhood on the golf cart. See the stars at night on the back deck. Sit on the swing under a cool stand of pine trees and feel your worries disappear. Do you like seafood? Being here is the perfect place for a seafood boil or peel and eat shrimp. Plan on bringing some Old Bay and shrimp. The dock just calls for shrimp to be eaten on it. Please remember the closest grocery store is 20 minutes away. On your way to the house is a Super Wal Mart in Elizabeth City which is a good stop to buy supplies. We do have spices, butter, olive oil, etc for your cooking needs. We will have info at the house for you about local restaurants, shopping and sightseeing.

Lovely, peaceful vacation spot
My husband and I stayed over 4th of July weekend and "peaceful" is the perfect adjective for the property! We enjoyed canoeing and swimming near the dock each day, grilled fresh fish from Story's Seafood in Hertford and had fun touring the neighborhood and property in the golf cart. Sunsets were gorgeous, especially when enjoyed from the hot tub! The host thought of everything, from providing a well-stocked kitchen with all the needed cookware, a clean and inviting space, and all of the outdoor entertainment we could need. We also were happy to spot some wildlife, including turkey vultures in the trees (down around the point) and many seabirds, lots of frogs in the evening, and even a snake in the water out behind the barn (not poisonous). I'm sure we would have seen fish and crabs if we were looking as well. I highly recommend this property, and I’m sure we will be back in the future. P.S. if you need ice or snacks, the New Hope Country Store is about 10 minutes away and is a pretty well stocked little store. Convenient, since the next closest is a half hour away in Hertford.
This property does not disappoint on peaceful Beauty. The house was very charming. The kitchen is gorgeous. The sunroom is very spacious and beautifully decorated. The outside deck, the dock,the swing and the hot tub are all fantastic! A spacious well maintained yard with a golf cart was a added bonus. The negatives for us were the distance to everything .We have a very active family that wants to shop and go to the beach and Its a very long drive to do any outer banks activities. The size of the secondary bedrooms are small so people who are not a couple that are sharing will have a difficult time( my mom and my daughter). The master was great. Both bathrooms were past their prime and showing their age but did work fine. There is no comfy couch ( just a settee). The sunroom/living room is very hot!! The tv constantly dropped signal so don't plan on watching it. Wifi is so slow that nothing would load ( finding area attractions ect..). Bugs were some what of a problem but kinda expected (location and amount of use). Glenn was very kind and attentive without being pushy. This property is perfect for those who want to decompress and stay put . The Beauty of the water/ nature is amazing. We would have given the property 5 stars if it wasn't so removed from the activities we wanted to do.
This property lives up to the description "peaceful." We enjoyed our stay here, and the house had everything we needed.
Loved this house!!!
My family loved this house!! Beautiful view, beautiful home so relaxing and quiet. Was a perfect getaway and we didn’t want to leave. Will definitely be staying here again!!
This home is such a nice getaway from the busy hustle and bustle. My friends and I had an amazing time and loved exploring the downtown areas nearby. We will definitely be back! Thank you, Glenn, for such an awesome place.
Beautiful, comfortable property, they clearly make an effort to anticipate what you might need. Well done.
Ride into Elizabeth City and go back in time 25 years. Ride into Hertford and go back in time 50 years. Get a hand scooped ice cream cone at the local pharmacy. Go into Edenton and go back in time 75 years. Definitely has a Mayberry feel to it!
