Overview

About the property

4BR 3BA Old Family Creek Home

Escape the fast-paced demands of life and find tranquility amid the breathtaking views and salty air this water-front, peaceful creek home offers. Built in the 1950s and having survived Hurricane Hugo and Hazel, Tranquility embodies the ‘creek house’ feel with the view and history to accompany it.

For sixty plus years, generations of our family have built memories from this home playing in the pluff mud, water-skiing, shrimping, and fishing the inlet waters. Gathering under the moonlight on the dock to tell inlet ghost stories of the Gray Man and Alice Flagg has been a favorite past time as the original home of Alice, “The Hermitage,” was just across the water. Tranquility will feed that inner nostalgia for a simpler, beautiful way of life.

Located in the heart of Murrells Inlet on deep water (dredged 05/2017), the covered dock opens to a large floating dock with a ladder for swimming and boat cleats for tie-up. The house features central H/VAC, cable TV, wireless internet, living room/dining room combination, washer/dryer, dishwasher, electric stove, microwave, outdoor Walton Style Dining Table, Grill, Hammock and enclosed outdoor shower. Within the upstairs are three bedrooms. The king bedroom has its own full bathroom and faces creek-side. The two bedrooms with two double beds each are connected by a bathroom. A screened in porch is both on the creek side of the house and the parking side. One large screened in porch includes two dining tables off of the kitchen. The other screened-in porch has comfortable sitting for enjoying a sunrise, reading a book, or drinking your morning coffee. Off of the carport downstairs is a secluded bedroom with a queen bed and full bathroom. A laundry room with a washer, dryer and overflow refrigerator is also off of the carport. Room for parking is plentiful with the ability to fit more than a dozen cars. This house is ideal for enjoying the activities, serenity, view, salty breeze, and much more that Murrells Inlet offers!

Bedding consists of 1 King, 1 queen, 4 Double beds, 1 sleeper Sofa in Living Room

Bathrooms*: 3 full bathrooms. 2 with bath/shower combination and 1 with shower only. *Outdoor shower off of carport.

**LINENS ARE NOT INCLUDED.

Close to Huntington Beach State Park (pass available for renters use), Brookgreen Gardens, Garden City beach, & North Litchfield Beach. House is on the Waccamaw Neck Bikeway which provides miles of paved continuous pathway. The house is walking distance to shops, the inlet’s best seafood restaurants, and less than a quarter mile from the Murrells Inlet Marsh Walk and a block away from Sunnyside Plantation House a popular wedding venue.

The house is located about a quarter mile from the public boat landing, and provides easy access to the ocean.

Great place to relax.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Tranquility. We didn't get to go out on the creek because of the weather, but there was plenty of room inside for the grandchildren to play. The owner was very nice and helpful. I would recommend this place if you are going to Murrells Inlet.

About Jed Bohler

Thank you for inquiring about our family vacation home. Our names are Jed and Cappie Bohler.

Jed grew up in Murrells Inlet and loves being close to the ocean. He works at Waccamaw Community Hospital and spends his free time surfing, paddleboarding and boating.

Cappie was raised in a small town just 30 miles inland. She spent her summers in Murrells Inlet at Tranquility bonding with her sisters, cousins and her fathers family. She is an Interior Designer at a nearby firm and spends her free time paddleboarding and boating.

We met through a mutual friend and married six years later. In September of 2014 we welcomed our first child into the world and in January of 2017 our second. We live only a couple of miles from Tranquility and look forward to sharing our family home with you.

Jed Bohler purchased this house in 1954
