Perfect Private Getaway
We had a great time during our stay. We were able to launch our boat at a nearby boat ramp and anchored about 50 yards off the shore. We did lots of boating and swimming. Overall a great time. Only cons were the mosquitoes in the evening and there are some minor aspects to the home that could use a little TLC, otherwise everything was great. If you're looking for privacy just outside the hustle and bustle this is perfect and I highly recommend it.
I am glad you enjoyed your stay at the house and being on the river. It is a very nice setting for privacy, right on the Pasquotank River. The river offers the pleasure of swimming, fishing, kayaking, and the beautiful sunsets. I like looking at the lights across the river at night, but certainly don't venture outside to see them, the mosquitoes are bad. I am outside during the day but stay inside at night. Thank you for taking time to write a review.
Smoke detector problems
Extremely sensitive smoke alarm at this property. Although the owners inform you of a smoke detector issue, the process to fix the issue is strenuous. Simply cooking breakfast with the vent fan on does nothing to solve the problem.
Yes, I do warn that the smoke detector is sensitive and recommend the stove fan runs when someone is cooking. But the smoke detector is not triggered that frequently. On your stay they were triggered twice and that is unusual, I am truly sorry for the inconvenience that it caused.
Beautiful home on a beautiful serene lake we loved it
Wanda handles all of our questions quickly and efficiently beautiful place!
Very quiet, comfortable accommodations.
We stayed at Pugh's Paradise for a corporate work project in the area for a little over a month. It was 6 of us in total and there was plenty of space for everyone to stretch out and relax when at home. The backyard facing the water is breathtaking during sunsets with nice weather! For a corporate stay, this house is very suitable. The location is slightly isolated from the more built up areas of Elizabeth City, but close enough that a 20 minute drive gives you access to everything that you need. The biggest concern would have been the limited internet connection, but the host Wanda, was able to upgrade the connection with a new router and extenders in order for us to utilize the connection for consistent emailing purposes. Wanda made herself very available via phone to help with any questions or needs we had. I would recommend this house for anyone wanting or needing to stay in this area.
Third time back and counting
My family loves this rental house for our annual homecoming stay. There is always enough space for everyone!! This year we actually got to enjoy the backyard and the water as the weather was great!! My kids loved the openness and I loved being able to keep an eye on them from inside the house as all the windows in this house are huge!!! And (almost) every room has a door to the back patio!
We will definitely be back!!

About Wanda Leary
I enjoy the beauty, peace, and quiet of the home, yard, and river. My mother and Donald, my step-father lived in the home for 20 years. My mother remarked it was like Paradise living there. They worked very hard to plant the trees, shrubs, and flowers and to keep up the yard, flower beds, and home. Many family and friends enjoyed the get-togethers at their home; cook-outs, fish roasts, and fantastic meals.
