About the Property

Sleeps 13! Perfect for extended families.

All your cares are washed away as you relax on the exclusive private guarded beach located just steps away from your quiet 4 bedroom private residence with 3 full bath rooms, large enclosed deck which is amazing during delightful rain storms and an excessively large patio with grill and two picnic tables plus four lounge chairs.

The Whippoorwill with it's family amenities and comfort has been a family favorite for decades.

Appointed with families in mind, the sleeping arrangements include a private master suite with jacuzzi tub, a centrally located bedroom with a king size bed, as well as, a 3rd bedroom with two singles and finally a 4th bedroom with 2 sets of bunks. Two additional sleeper sofas are also available.

Enjoy the local song birds as you enjoy your morning coffee on the screened-in porch and feast on local crabs on the massive 30 x 30 deck as the sun sets.
