About the property

Cherry Grove Beach Private Home

Charming English Cottage, (see our virtual video posted on this site) welcomes your families, friends and well mannered pets to our peaceful equestrian grounds where you can enjoy privacy and quiet country living, just a skip and a jump to the very popular Cherry Grove Beach in North Myrtle Beach. You are welcome to come in any day of the week!

The very special feature about this home is that it is surrounded by 250 acres of forest which is uniquely rare so close to the beach.

Stretch out in our green outdoors and BB-Q while taking in nature's sites (we provide free chopped wood for Betha, "our large masonry charcoal/wood grill). We have lots of "nature's visitors" in "our neck of the woods" fishing birds of all kinds, including blue herons, 2 red shoulder hawks that were born right behind our home, ducks, deer, which we have seen swimming in our fish pond in the early morning hours. You too might get lucky and witness their grace... and if you hear our red shoulder hawks during the day, remember, this is their home too.

I just WONDER what will we see next? Now that we have the new waterfall in our pond?

No license needed to catch fish from our well stocked private fish pond. We have large size grain fed cat fish.

This Cottage may accommodate up to 6 people comfortably and pets are welcome too. We have 24/7 caretaker on the grounds (at a safe distance), to take care of our horses, chickens and the grounds in general, so you can enjoy your vacation care free, while we keep things pretty for you. We have surveillance on site, fun and games such as a ping pong table, wifi station, horse shoes, board games, beach chairs, etc.

The upstairs portion of this home has a one bedroom / one bath with a king size bed, memory foam mattress and a romantic jacuzzi tub. Also, an open livingroom/ Chefs' kitchen/dinning room area and an office loft.

The downstairs portion of this home has a private studio with a well stocked petite kitchen, a bathroom with a shower (hot water on demand), a double bed with a memory foam mattress and is dressed with all luxury linens 100% Cotton which are included in the price. Perfect 1st floor for grand parents and couples.

Cottage has a work out room and a laundry area available! Wifi and Wii Station with games also available. Cable Dish Network.

So come over ya all! I am certain that you will enjoy this very special home so much that you will want to return year, after year. Very, very comfortable, loved and clean!

Great Vacation for all!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Gina's home in North Myrtle Beach, S.C. was amazing!!! The house was immaculate and she gave us a nice personal tour to start off our stay. She showed us around the property and around the house to show us all the things we could use and do while there for the week. We had no issues with our stay at all and Gina was absolutely a doll. She was helpful when needed and didn't disturb our stay in any way. In fact we invited her to sit out with us a few times but she is a very busy woman! I would recommend this property stay to anyone. Our kids loved the animals on the property as well as the pond and the house. It was much better than staying at a hotel or just a regular old beach house. We will definitely re-visit in the future!!! Thanks again Gina for an amazing week and wish you all the best in the future!

Felt Right at Home!

  • 5 of 5

Away from the hustle and bustle, this quaint cottage had ample room for my family to enjoy! Our 3 kids loved being surrounded by nature. We made turtle friends, horse friends, and a few little fishy friends too! The owner, Gina, was so accommodating, down to earth and friendly...and my little pups loved meeting Molly. I strongly want to recommend the cottage for a vacation to reconnect with your family....we genuinely enjoyed each other and the peace that we found here. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful house and a great host!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at The Story Book Cottage. The property is very convenient to the beach and other local attractions while maintaining a secluded country feel. We were looking for a place that allowed pets so we could take our dog with us and this was the perfect place. There is a great little dog run right out the back door. Gina is a fantastic host and was very helpful/responsive to anything we needed. We unfutunatly had a day of bad weather but still had a great time watching the horses and other wildlife around the property. This is truly a special place that we hope to return to in the future.

Look No Further!

  • 5 of 5

My dad booked this lovely home for a family weekend trip with my fiance. We needed a place that was pet friendly, and sure enough , this place was an animal haven. We were greeted at the gate by Gina, the owner (and builder!), who was warm and welcoming to our party. Without hesitation, she guided us to the main house where we we staying and gave us a tour. The house is AMAZING! There's everything and anything you could need. We came for the beach, but the property itself would've been enough for a vacation destination. Needless to say we amply enjoyed our stay at the Storybook Cottage, and my fiance and I can't wait to go back! Thank you for the great experience, Gina!

Owner's Response: Hello There. Thank you for coming down. I have a feeling I will see you all again and I am very excited for your future... we had a nice time together and there was so much more we could have said but, it was not fair to steal you away from your family. I am glad you had a nice time and that it was memorable!

Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Storybook Cottage. It was a very relaxing and peaceful atmosphere. Gina was always a phone call or text away if we had any issues. Restaurants, the beach and all the attractions were very close. Would highly recommend staying here if your looking for a peaceful place to stay close to everything. I would definitely come here again and looking forward to the next time.

Bike week vacation on the ranch

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the ranch it was very accommodating and close to all of the things we wanted to be near. The owner kept in touch to make sure we were comfortable. The only small issue was the dust from the road into the ranch, but we got around that issue with a wet rag. It was nice and quiet and the animals were nice and quiet too.

Owner's Response: Thanks Lydia for your 100% honesty....It is a ranch and horses like dusty roads rather than cement, etc. But I do like how you were clever enough to improvise by having a rag.... Pretty smart lady. Thank you too for leaving my home in such a wonderful condition... sorry you did not get to try the donuts I left you... I'll try wine or chocolates next time! Hi, hi. Gina and Mollie my dogie.
