Why Reid and Jim chose Cobb Island
You are going to love Cobb Island, I often describe it as Mayberry on the water. A place where the schedule slows down, folks walk around and talk to neighbors, and most importantly a place to unwind and relax.
What makes this House unique
The dock and pier are best places to spend your time. The view is great. You can watch a sunset, throw a line in the water or simply read a book. Bird watching is also fun, Bald Eagles come by early in the year until they get chased off by the Osprey which are fun to watch on the hunt. Purple Marten birds can be found flying around all year.

This house was an amazing house with sunning river views. It was also fully equipped to House eleven people comfortably. The kitchen was also modern and new with a nice big farmhouse table for all to sit. Will definitely rent again.
The perfect house for our getaway
We recently stayed at this home for a week-long getaway. We had folks come in from all around the country and once we reached the destination... we were so thankful that the house and all the descriptions on HomeAway matched exactly.
The house was perfect for our needs. Views from all over the house out to the water were spectacular. The kitchen and dining area ideally suited our group of 8. We never felt that we were in each other's way.
We appreciated all the extras around the house: Bikes, yard games, deck chairs, movies, gaming systems, etc.
Cobb Island may not be a destination for us in future trips, but if we could clone this house and take it to other waterfront locations, we would do it in a heartbeat.
There were only a few negative things:
The outdoor grill was functional but not easy to use as the valves malfunctioned making it difficult to control temperature. The outdoor picnic table was not safe for more than a couple people to sit on. There were a lot of bugs and cobwebs around all the entrances to the house which did not appear to be taken care of in several weeks. The yard had a lot of weeds, and it bugged a few in our party so much that they went out and pulled them out themselves.
Lastly, we reached out to the owners via email on three occasions to request if our dogs would be welcome (the house is listed as pet-friendly and there are listed prices within the rental contract). Sadly, we never received a response, which unfortunately added expenses for boarding.
Thanks much for your review, the views really are breath taking, we will get the Cobb webs outside and grill taken care of.
The House was very clean and nicely decorated.
Couldn’t get enough of the view from all over the house. Will definatly visit again.
My family and I had a wonderful time and the house easily slept all 9 of us adults.
Absolutely beautiful and SPACIOUS house on the river; plenty of room for my extended family to spread out. Beach bikes in the garage are a good addition to be able to explore the island at our leisure.. Well equipped kitchen for meals, which is very much recommended since the local restaurants are limited and not very good unless you like crab picking or mostly fried everything else.. Also, a very good idea to go food shopping before arriving as the local general store is limited to the basics, but does have a decent variety of craft beer. We met the next door neighbor Dennis; he and his pup Rosie were very friendly and informative about island and the local area...
We enjoy our stay ! Love it !
