About Douglas Liverman and Kimberly Cox

My name is Doug Liverman. I live in Ahoskie NC. Ahoskie is about 25 minutes away from the cabin. The cabin was built basically to have more room when we (Kim and I ) would have all the family down for holiday weekends. It started out as just a square box shape and turned into what it is today. It is about 800 square feet sitting on a hillside just off the Chowan River in Bertie County N.C. It is pattern after a one hundred year old cabin that Kim, my girlfriend, found in a Sportsman magazine at a dentist office. Kim got me phone numbers and I called until I found the people who own the original one which is over a hunderd years old and much more rustic. We added a kitchen and a few other features to ours to make it what it is. A nice little cozy cabin on a hillside where it fits perfect over looking a pond in a quiet little area on the river. You can walk from the cabin to the pier on the river and never touch the ground.It is great for exercise if you are looking for that. As for myself I own a small business in Ahoskie and Kim is a nurse at the local hospital.There is a larger log home on the property which I try to spend as much time in as I possibly can. If you come and visit you will understand why.

Douglas Liverman and Kimberly Cox purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Douglas Liverman and Kimberly Cox chose Edenton

Mainly for the view. When I was sixteen my buddy and I would go down to this place and hang out, at that time it belonged to his grandparents. I would watch him and a friend of ours jump off a cliff that used to be in front of the main house. The crazy things we will do when we are young . I never knew that someday I would actually have a house on the same lot. The view is beautiful and breathtaking especially on a moon lite night or an early morning sunrise.

What makes this cabin unique

The view and location is great and it is very quaint and peaceful. If you are looking for a quiet week or weekend it's worth the trip. You can see deer running around, you can feed the ducks in the nearby pond, watch the rabbits run by, or maybe if you are lucky you may see a bald eagle fly. There are nice restaurants in the area that you can visit by land or river. Just one problem if you go by river you will need a boat, so if you have one you might want to bring it unless you luck up and Kim and I are around and hungry. There is some shopping a few miles away, a movie theater, and some historical viewing if you like things like that. It is small town shopping no W-marts. The nearest one is about 25 minutes away.The cabin does have a deck on the back with a fire pit, gas grill, and a screened in porch. There is a front porch with old timer rockers and a small table for early morning coffee. It has a microwave, also a coffee maker for the coffee lovers.The bathroom has a walk in shower but no tub, in the kitchen there is an oven,stove, and fridge.Jets skies and fishing boats are not available but there will be a paddle boat,small john boat with trolling motor for someone who may want to fish. Canoe or kayak and fishing reels will be available for daily rental. If there is a special occasion please let us know we will be more than willing to help. Check in time is at 3:00 PM, check out is at 11:00 AM.

Great little hideaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for 2 people, it is on the small side yet super cozy. There is fishing nearby on the dock, however, to really enjoy the water especially if you want to swim, plan to rent the boat for the day so you can get out away from the shore. You won't want to swim near the shore. If you have paddle boards bring them as it would be perfect water to paddle board in. There are kayaks you can rent as well. Cell phone reception is minimal so bring lots of things to do. Really neat place, restaurants are about a half an hour away so plan on stopping at a grocery store along your route and stock up for your stay. If secluded is what you want, this is it!

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here. The property was so clean and the owners were very kind. We could take the kids down to a little beach to splash around or let them burn off energy playing outside. We really enjoyed our stay.

Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in the door we were relaxed. Even more beautiful than expected. Morning coffee overlooking the sunrise on the water was just awesome. Doug & Kim thought of everything! Would definitely recommend!!

Five stars!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was lovely. Stayed two days, one night with two adults and four children. We grilled out, made s’mores on the bondfire, swam in the water, caught some fish! We had the whole lake to ourselves. It was quiet and peaceful. First day was cloudy and rainy but we still had a blast. The cabin was clean and inviting. Kids had two comfy queen beds upstairs and we got the pull out couch downstairs. The woodwork and detail of this cabin was amazing, from the hanging canoe above us in the kitchen to the many hand carved bears outside! Made some great memories and got beautiful photos. Will be back for sure! Thank you for having us :)
