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!

Car: Recommended

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.
