|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Our cottage has an upper and lower level. These are each totally self-contained and can be rented separately or together.
The upper level has an ocean view from the wrap-around front porch. This makes a relaxing gathering place to enjoy the cool breezes and look out over the ocean. The upper cottage has a fully stocked kitchen, a living room, and a dining room, one bathroom, and 3 bedrooms. There is also a small back porch.
The lower lever also has a wrap-around front porch. There is a combination living room and dining room, a fully stocked kitchen, one bathroom, and 3 bedrooms.
There is a laundry room on the lower back porch which can be shared by both the upper and lower levels. There is also an outside shower with hot and cold water.
Several generations of our family have enjoyed vacationing here for over 65 years. We have a number of renters who have also choosen our cottage for their family vacations; some have been returning for over 20 years.
It is about 100 feet from our front porch to the beach. This makes it easy for children, and adults too, to walk back and forth from the beach to the cottage to pick up more sunscreen, to grab more drinks, or to 'use the facilities'. There are no roads to cross, no traffic to worry about. We are close enough to the pier (Johnnie Mercer's Pier) to walk up for the pin-ball machines. Yet, we are far enough away to avoid some of the crowds that gather near the pier. It's easy to walk up to the business district to get a 'Carolina hotdog' or a smoothie at The Trolley Stop'. The University of North Carolina-Wilmington is about 8 miles away. Frequently students come to enjoy the night scene in this business area.
Wonderful old-time beach house with updated amenities! My wife and daughter and I stayed here during a UNCW college visit. Great location and a great deal for Wrightsville Beach. We would definitely rent the Lennon cottage again on a return visit to Wrightsville.
*****Relax and enjoy your vacation at Wrightsville Beach!****
Wrightsville Beach is a great family beach located 5 miles from Wilmington, NC, just a few miles from Interstate 40. Wrightsville Beach is famous for its beautiful wide sandy beach, cool blue waters, and friendly family atmosphere. Our cottage is located just 4 houses back from the beach!
The Lennon cottage was built by our grandfather in 1947. It is centrally located and within walking distance to many of the island's fine restraurants and local shops. Enjoy a fine dinner at the Oceanic Restaurant, or watch the Intracoastal boats from The Bridge Tender or Dockside Restaurants. Close by are jogging trails, rentals for kayaks, bikes and roller blades, sailing, and scuba diving. Excellent golf courses and charters for Gulf Stream fishing are also nearby. There is a fun water park on Oleander Dr. in Wilmington.
The USS North Carolina Battleship, the North Carolina Sea Aquarium and the Fort Fisher Civil War fortress and museum are easily accessible from here. Wilmington has an interesting historic district commemorating events from the Revolutionary War. Stroll through the old town along the Cape Fear River for a wide variety of coffee shops and Southern Cuisine. There is a 'Children's Museum' and even a Snake Museum (Serpintarium) in town.
