Many excellent restaurants are also located a short drive from the Turtle Crossing Cottage.
An "Adventure Path" has been created to guide you from Turtle Crossing Cottage's ancient forest through the incredible marshland to the shoreline on West Lake (not usable during flooding / high water levels). Here you can launch your kayak and/or canoe and experience the quiet sounds of the West Lake marsh. Or, if you just want to sit at the shoreline it is a perfect place to relax, read a book or fish. Depending on the time of the year, the water level varies, but you can always launch larger boats just 300 meters to the East at the public boat launch.
During High Season, there is a large water park (with kids weekly camps) and a Wake Boarding School just 1 km away. Isaiah Tubbs Resort with restaurant and bar is located 1 km from the cottage with boat rentals; canoe, kayak and other rentals available. You can also asked to be taken and picked up by boat to the sand dunes.
The cottage has convenient parking for up to 4 cars.
