Edenton is the closest town listed on VRBO that is why it was chosen in the search name. Hopefully soon they will add Columbia, NC to the search list.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1974

About the owner: This is the home place in which I grew up. I attended Columbia High School. This has the small town charm where you know everyone.

Why the Owner Chose Columbia, NC, USA:
This is family owned property. I grew up with my brother on the river-fishing, swimming, canoeing, water skiing and boating. I have enjoyed many years on the river with our family and friends and would like to share this experience with other couples and families. There is nothing as enjoyable like watching the sunset over the mouth of the Scuppernong River and the Albemarle Sound every afternoon.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Watching the sunset every afternoon sitting one the deck with my family is what made me fall in love with the River House. We have shared many meals with our family and friends outside. Cooking local seafood. And best of all making home made peach ice cream.
