Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: My family and I purchased the property in 1970. Because of abundance of crows in the area and the dam is visible from the property, hence the name "The Dam Crows Nest". Until 2012 there was a 60' house trailer located on the adjacent property. I was originally from Virginia Beach, but moved to Wilmington, DE for seventeen years and moved back to Virginia Beach in 2014. My grown kids and I decided to build the cabin in 2011. My oldest son did all the tile, slate and stonework in the house and my other son built the deck. My forte is decorating. I hope you will enjoy our "Little Piece of Heaven" and will come back year after year.

Why the Owner Chose Henrico, NC, USA:
We were invited to a friend's cabin just around the corner. We fell in love with the lake. Before the weekend was over we we knew we wanted our own place. We were shown this 1-1/2 acre property and fell in love with it. The property is located on a large point on Main Lake which wraps around to a private sandy cove beach. The log cabin main floor has two bedrooms, one with a queen bed, the other has a set of bunk beds and a daybed with pop-up trundle (total 4 twins) and a futon (double bed size). Washer and drier located on main level. The master bedroom on the third level has a king bed and a low youth bed, and a sofa chair in the loft. The walk-out basement floor has a built-in granite bar, regulation pool table, televisions, sectional sofa, extra full size frig., full bath, two bedrooms, both with queens. The entire basement has slate floors. The basement level patio has a picnic table and seating. Cook out on the propane grill while enjoying the beautiful view off the large deck on the main level. Pet friendly! Sunday to Sunday In Season. 1 King, 3 Queens, 5 Twins, Futon (double) and a Youth Bed (sheet provided) & a full size inflatable mattress. Pillows and blankets provided. Storage cabinet with additional pillows and blankets. Four bedrooms have flat screen televisions. The bunkbed room has a standard television that has cable and plays VHS and DVD's. Main floor living area has a Blu-Ray Smart DVD player.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The boat house and pier has a view beautiful view of Main Lake and the dam and is located on deep water. The perimeter of the boat house has led rope lightening. The boat house also has one-of-a- kind special led colored lighting. There is nothing like it on the lake. A tall led light on the boat house roof lights the cove and surrounding water for evening swimming or fishing. There are also two fire pits where you can chat and roast marshmallows. There is also a regulation horseshoe pit. Rope hammock and rope chair for lounging on the bottom floor patio.
