About Capt. Bob Willard
Cathy's grandparents settled on Snead Island in 1957, she's called it home ever since. We've been married since 1980, at which time we moved aboard our 32' sailboat. For the next 20 years we lived and worked on private, corporate and charter boats, Bob as Captain/Engineer, Cathy as 1st Mate/Cook. We now enjoy racing our 22' Morgan sailboat and riding our Harley Davidson Motorcycles.
Capt. Bob Willard purchased this Apartment in 2009

Loved the place!! Captain Bob was very helpful and very welcoming. We were allowed to bring our dog and had a dock for our boat. We couldn't have found a better place!! Can't wait to go back
Everything I needed for enjoying a relaxing stay was provided on site.
I truly enjoyed the peace tranquility of the birds and magnificent water view from my treehouse stay.
I will return next year..
Many thanks to Bob and Cathy for their hospitality..
Peaceful and Gorgeous
If you want to wake up to nature and amazing landscape I would recommend this Tree House. Me, my boyfriend, and husky stayed here 3 nights. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch and watching the birds, ducks, squirrels, and even a fox visited us. The flowers and landscape was unbelievable and Mrs. Cathy worked in the yard everyday however she did not bother us whatsoever and gave us plenty of space. I did not get to use the hot tub but I watched the sunsets over the river and it was beautiful. Our husky really loved Emerson Park, which is right down the street. Capt. Bob was very laid back and nice. The only thing I would have liked is if the doors would have locked even though we felt very safe.
Fantastic piece of property
Capt. Bob & Cathy were two gracious hosts. The description of the property did not do it justice.
Absolutely, breath taking views.
Can not wait to stay again.
Best Stay Ever
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Tree House. Never before have we stayed in such a beautiful place. It was cozy and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Our hosts were gracious and friendly. We will be returning next year for sure.
"A little piece of paradise"
We really enjoyed our stay at the Tree House. If you're looking for a very relaxing, peaceful and quiet getaway, this is the place. The Tree House has all of the amenities that you need and Bob and Cathy are great hosts. We took our small flats boat and the fishing was awesome! Make sure you go eat at the Clamhouse, it's really good. We are already looking forward to our trip next year!

Emerson Point Park is a short walk from our property and takes up the entire NW tip of Snead Island rather than the small area shown on Google map.
