About the Property
3 bedroom, 2 bathroom w/Lake View, Wrap-around Porch, and Large Private Dock
The location is perfect for a quick trip from Raleigh/Durham - only 1 hour from North Raleigh or Durham (up to 1.5 hrs from S.Raleigh) the home is located just past Townsville NC, which is nice considering most of the lake is in Virginia which would take a lot longer to get to. It is also very close to a boat ramp (Ivy Hill ramp), good for anyone bringing a boat or coming for fishing, and the location on the lake is ideal because you are not on the 'main' open water so it is very quiet and peaceful, but 1 minute on a boat around a corner and you are on the open water for skiing or sightseeing.
This is a self-clean accommodation^ (please read further below). The kitchen has all the amenities you need and features a large island with 4 bar stools - nice for entertaining. There is also a dining table for more seating, and the kitchen and dining are open to a large living room with TV, cable/internet^^ (please read further below), DVDs, board games and a bocce ball set for your use. There are three bedrooms - two with queen beds, and one with 2 twin beds - each bedroom can sleep two comfortably, and 2 full baths. New gas grill for your use as well. We do provide linens and towels if you really need them, however starting this year we HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU BRING YOUR OWN SHEETS AND TOWELS. This allows you to a LOT of extra time on the morning of check-out to not have to do laundry while also having to do all the other cleaning, and prevents problems we've had with laundry not being dried and handled properly.
* NO SMOKING OR PETS.
* MAXIMUM OF 6 GUESTS.
* WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE/HANDICAP FRIENDLY!
* CHECK-IN TIME IS 4:00 PM DAY OF ARRIVAL, CHECK-OUT TIME IS 12:00 PM DAY OF DEPARTURE.
*THE FOLLOWING HOLIDAYS REQUIRE A 5-NIGHT MINIMUM STAY:
Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day
We also welcome any inquires regarding longer-term rentals, such as several months at a time.
^ This is a SELF-CLEAN accommodation. Due to the location of the property and it being remote, we do not have the cleaning options that other rentals properties may have (we often can't even get cleaning people out here at all, much less on very short notice). During the busier summer months when there are back-to-back rentals we especially need to rely on our renters to do a VERY thorough cleaning job, as there are only 4-hour windows between rentals. We do this to try to maximize everyone's time at the home, but we just ask for awareness and courtesy about this. Due to this we HIGHLY recommend bringing your own linens, that way clean-up time is a lot shorter on the morning of check-out because you don't have to wait for load(s) of laundry to be finished. Thank you for understanding!!!
^^ As a warning learned from guests in the past, please do NOT come here if you plan on just watching TV or using the internet all day and night, or if you will be here on business and need to rely 100% on having internet service. As stated further in the "amenities" section, we DO have satellite TV and internet service, however due to being in such a remote location it has problems from time to time and the data package is very small for the internet so it gets used up very quickly each month and we can only buy a certain extra amount maximum per month. We hate this as much as you do because it takes a lot of our time to try to correct this all the time (on the phone with the provider, arranging someone to meet them there in a 4-hour-window since we don't live in the area, etc, etc), but we do try our hardest to have it there for at least checking emails and watching a few shows while you're there. So this is our official fine print that the service is unreliable, and we do research every year if there are any better provider options that we can try to improve this. Thanks!
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

- The property is fully furnished and includes all kitchen appliances and cleaning supplies. It does have linens and bath towels, however we HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU BRING YOUR OWN to cut down on clean-up time on your last day (there are two queen beds and two twin beds). It does NOT include personal, disposable items such as toilet paper, paper towels, toiletries (shampoo, soap), etc. Sorry there is currently NO home telephone. There is great cell phone reception with Verizon here, not with AT&T though. Not sure about any other carriers. For Housekeeping, renters are expected to clean themselves upon departure. This includes: washing, drying and putting away sheets, towels and dishes before leaving; cleaning all floors; bathrooms are to be left very clean please (clean counters, commodes, shower, floor, and mirror); please take any and all trash with you - the location is remote so there is no trash service available to our home (there will be instructions on nearby dumpster/recycling)....moreless

Car: Not Necessary
At Wolfpack Lodge you will be getting away from it all here. You and your family will enjoy a nice, quiet location on Kerr Lake near Henderson Point. The house is at the end of a gravel road, so it is very private. Also, the location on the lake itself is ideal because you are not on the 'main' water so it is very quiet and peaceful for swimming and fishing, but one minute on a boat around a corner and you are on the big, open water for skiing or sightseeing.
Once you launch your boat at the boat ramp (only 8 minutes away by car, then 4 minutes back by water) you can drive it back to the home's spacious dock which can accommodate 3 boats and leave it here for the duration of your stay for quick and easy trips on and off the water.
One of the best fishing lakes in the eastern United States, Kerr Lake features striped bass, largemouth bass, white perch, crappie, and catfish. Fish from a boat, the shoreline or from the piers at Bullocksville and Henderson Point. The pier at Henderson Point is open 24 hours per day.
Clarksville, VA is a only quick boat-ride away and is a great, quaint little town to stop in for the day with it's large boat dock, nice restaurants and shops (lots of great antique shops). The Kerr Lake Dam and some large marinas are also a quick boat ride away in the other direction. Steele Creek Marina and Satterwhite Point Marina, are open year round and offer fuel, mooring, slips, service and supplies, and sometimes have special events going on such as fireworks display for July 4th. Satterwhite Point has a visitor's center complete with an exhibit hall. An accessible nature trail with an overlook, as well as an amphitheater, are nearby.
While the location of the home is somewhat remote, Henderson is only 15 minutes away and has everything you could need in an emergency (hospital, stores, restaurants, shopping, etc). There are also a couple convenience stores only 3-5 minutes away from the home for necessities such as drinks, snacks, bait & tackle, etc, and a couple restaurants between the home and Henderson.
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We are Christian and Sara and we LOVE to boat and spend every minute outside that we can. Christian is from England but grew up in South Africa, so he loves how the weather here gets warm like South Africa but the area has the country feel of England. Sara is a Raleigh native. We got married in 2010 and welcomed twin boys in June 2014!
Why the Owner Chose Henderson, NC, USA:
We absolutely LOVE this home - the location is so great on the lake, and the home itself is so cozy and 'lake-y' yet open and spacious as well. When we come here we truly feel like we are days away from the city life and are in a whole different world.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The covered porch is the absolute best feature - you can literally sit there all day no matter what the weather and just look at the water and watch and listen to the nature around you while drinking your coffee or an ice-cold beer. The dock is the second best feature - you could also spend all day here between swimming in the clean water, walking around the shore area (which can be like a beach depending on the water level), sun-bathing, fishing, and of course boating. Then at night you can lay on the dock and watch the stars that you just don't see in the city.
