About the Property

Great for families and reunions, not for bachelor golfer party groups.

This is a rare and unique creek house located on the creek in Murrells Inlet. It has been in our family for more than 90 years, and has been renovated and updated inside for comfort and modern conveniences The house comes with a private dock built in 2017, and a floating dock if you wish to bring your boat. We are 1/4 mile south of the public boat ramp in Murrells Inlet. Plenty of parking on our lot for boat trailers. Electric power and fresh water hoses on dock. The creek is navigable at all tides from the dock, and there is a swim ladder on the dock. Guests can enjoy activities such as swimming, fishing, crabbing, oystering, clamming, and boat riding. Kayaking from our floating dock is made easy. Owner, with permission, sometimes has access to his boat, which is kept separate from the dock on a boat lift. This will not unduly interfere with your use of the dock.
Beaches (Pawleys Island, Litchfield, and Garden City) are minutes away by car. Renown Brookgreen Gardens and Huntington State Park, 3 miles away, are jewels on the Grand Strand. The public boat ramp is 1/4 mile to our north.
This property has almost a acre of land on the Inlet under beautiful 300 year old live oaks and has a great grassy front yard near the Inlet which is a safe , wonderful play area for children. Please bring life jackets for smaller children so that they can fish, crab, and play on the dock.
This is one of the few remaining original creek houses left on the waterfront, and is full of nostalgia and history. We have many who book a year in advance to return.
Laid back, restful, quiet and private.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1919

Why the Owner Chose Murrells Inlet, SC, USA:
We cater to young couples with children, families and small family reunions, fishermen and water themed users. Those who anticipate having house parties, men's golf groups, and college breaks would much prefer Myrtle Beach to Marshmere. We do not allow guests to have noisy parties in the yard, weddings, or other events which may disturb our neighbors. We are zoned residential, and we wish to maintain the quiet solitude and ambiance we have come to know in Murrells Inlet.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Much porch sitting (one open porch, one screened, on water side) and dock use are primary activities at our beloved house.
