Overview

About the property

Relax and get away....

This rustic cottage on Carters Creek is ideal for a quiet escape from the hustle and bustle. For an individual guest or a couple, this is just the right space to decompress.

The Crab Shack is right at the water's edge, and its cozy bedroom, dining area, galley kitchen and living room all face the water.

The term 'industrial chic' has been used to describe this unique property. The outside of the building is all metal and the inside is exposed wood, with a striking floor-to-ceiling oyster shell fireplace. Usually guests congregate outside on the patio or dock, but if it's rainy, the porch or indoors is where to be, to enjoy the sound of rain drops on the tin roof.

THIS IS A NON SMOKING PROPERTY...1.25 MILLION DOLLAR PENALTY ENFORCED!

The Crab Shack is adorable and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

I had a lovely stay at The Crab Shack for Labor Day weekend. It is convenient to everything in Irvington and Kilmarnock but also a peaceful and quiet place to come home to after being in town. Can't beat relaxing on the porch with the water just steps away!

Pure relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

If you cant relax here, you can't relax anywhere. Just be aware the kitchen is rather small so be prepared to get creative with your cooking, or eat at one of the many great restaurants in the area. WE WILL BE BACK!!!

This is the 2nd time we've stayed here and this time stayed a whole week. Once again, we had everything we needed for an enjoyable and relaxing vacation. Look forward to returning again next year!

Cozy, calming and relaxing with a view of the river that kept us on the porch or on the dock. Crabbing was good and we enjoyed the place vrry much. Thanks for being a great host Andy.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The Crab Shack is something special. We had a beautiful and relaxing weekend. We did go to a couple wineries and walked around the towns but mostly we enjoyed the porch and the pier. Caught enough crabs for dinner one night but didn't have much luck on the fish. Loved getting up early and enjoying the quiet on the water. Andy was so very nice but unfortunately he was out of town so we didn't get to meet. Maybe next time, more reason to return. Thanks for sharing your Crab Shack!

Relaxing waterfront retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely weekend getaway at the Crab Shack. Totally private, just the right amount of amenities to meet our needs. We baked a couple of crab cakes in the small countertop oven, and utilized the small refrigerator, but kitchen not really set up for much cooking. Andy was very friendly and accommodating, and the creekside location is charming.

The Crab Shack is ideally situated for a quiet getaway for one person or a couple. At the end of the pier are two chairs from which to watch all types of working and pleasure boats glide by. Eagles, ospreys, herons and gulls provide natural entertainment daily.

Guests may fish off the pier without a permit - there are croaker, bluefish and rockfish in the creek.

If guests choose to arrive by water, either a sail boat or a power boat will have no trouble at the pier - the MLW is 8' deep.

Shopping, sporting and dining choices are just a boat ride or short car ride away. In nearby Irvington, Kilmarnock and White Stone there are art galleries, antique shops, boutiques, tennis courts, golf courses, restaurants and cafes to enjoy. Guests can choose to be as active or as relaxed as they like.
