Overview

About the property

This unit can be your truly relaxing getaway. Enjoy your morning coffee watching sunrises over the Croatan Sound and relax in the evening watching the sun go down from the private dock or the screened in porch.

A true sportsman’s paradise, the cabin is great for hunting, fishing and water sports of all kinds. You can launch your boat or jet ski at 2 nearby boat ramps, one at the foot of the Umstead Bridge in Mann's Harbor, the other on Mashoes Road. Both will get you to a private dock in 15 minutes, or launch your canoe or kayak right from the house. The bottom is sandy around the dock and beach area so kids will love the swimming or just crabbing to catch the night’s dinner.

Just minutes away from Historic Roanoke Island to the east, where you can enjoy the NC Aquarium, The Lost Colony, Island Farm, The Elizabeth II Historic Site, Civil War sites, Art Galleries and The Christmas Shop, just to mention a few of the best local attractions. To the west wildlife abounds on the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge, where you can enjoy kayak tours and miles of nature trails.

5 star dining, in addition to regular fast food and grocery chains are just minutes away. Outlet shopping as well as locally owned unique shops can be found throughout the county. Visit the historic Cape Hatteras Lighthouse or take a drive to Corolla to see the wild horses.

It is all at your fingertips from the rustic charm of this cabin in the woods.

Get away from it all!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great property, excellent location, just far enough away from everything to feel like your in the middle of no where at the same time as being within driving distance of all main attractions. Close to the wildlife refuge, and we saw 8 black bears! Our power went out on the last night, however we received excellent communication with the property manager. He answered my call & the problem was quickly resolved. I would recommend heavy bug spray, we are used to being in the woods so we use 40 Deet Lotion. Bugs get heavy at night, but we were prepared.

Great getaway on the sound

  • 4 of 5

We arrived to a mostly secluded, tidy cabin and a beautiful view of the Croatan sound. The views around the cabin are truly incredible and the sunsets are to die for. We purchased our 10 day temporary NC fishing licenses prior to driving down & it was great to have the convenience of fishing at our leisure. Although the dock was damaged in a storm, efforts are being made to repair it, and you can still easily fish off of the bank. Being in nature has it's ups and downs.. the ups were: seeing various types of wildlife (frogs GALORE, turtles, numerous birds, crabs, and dozens of fish were caught), the serene lapping of waves against the shore, and nights on the screened in porch with the sound of frogs chirping in the background... BUT the downside: the bugs were TERRIBLE, so citronella lamps are a must! We're from West Virginia, so we're no strangers to bugs and creepy crawlers, but the "yellow flies" will haunt your dreams. They seemed to be worse when rain was expected or right after the rain.

The cabin was nothing fancy, as expected, and was equipped with a lot of appliances such as microwave, can openers, DVD player (with a variety of DVD's) and flat screens - which gave us some conveniences that were appreciated - especially on our one rainy day.

The listing states that there are 2 bedrooms, but my husband and I used the downstairs as our bedroom and my parents slept upstairs in the master, so it could easily be said that there are three bedrooms. There was a lot of space for us to move around and not get in eachother's way, and it was an enormous plus that our fur babies were able to accompany us.

Food recommendations - We loved Darrell's and Bob's for breakfast, New York Pizza Pub for dinner, and on the 'pricy but good' list is - Tale of the Whale, and Basnight's Lone Cedar.. both directly on the sound and have incredible views.

If you're looking for a property that offers you a lot of room, activities, interaction with nature, seclusion, breathtaking views, a drive minutes from the beach, and minutes from shops and fantastic dining, then this is for you.

Darrell was very quick to respond to any questions or issues that I had and I would highly recommend the property! Thankful for a beautiful vacation and lots of photos and memories. 💜

If you like nature and tranquility, you'll love this vacation spot!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Darrell's cabin. The kitchen was very nice and well equipped. The screened-in porch was our favorite spot to spend time. The wildlife sanctuary was very interesting, and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening symphony put on by the tree frogs. Because the property had some damage from the storm Matthew, the downstairs bathroom was a little rough with no floor covering, and the dock was unusable which was not good for our fisherman. However, he managed to fish anyway and did catch some very good fish.

The spot was very quiet and the views were gorgeous.

It was nice

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed here before and really enjoyed the privacy and the private pier. About 40 miles away we were notified by the owner that the pier was out due to recent storms and there would be people there working on it that week. We were bummed to say the least. We get there and the yard maintenance was bad. The grass was really tall all around the house. The house was clean. While we were there, we had some storms and the roof has leaks. I put down some bowls to catch the water. We had less privacy than before due to the workers being there working on the pier. At least someone else will get to enjoy the pier once it's repaired as it wasn't finished when we left. The neighbor was very nice and let us use his pier the rest of the week once he left on Monday. We paid to stay through Saturday but decided to pack up and leave on Friday afternoon. I do wish the owner would put blinds on the bathroom window. It's just weird not to have some kind of window covering on a bathroom window. I would not shower in there at night for that reason alone. I am grateful the owner allows pets with no additional deposit. Our dogs enjoyed the vacation with us.

Loved the privacy and relaxed atmosphere this property offered

  • 4 of 5

We loved the privacy of this cabin. The children loved swimming in the sandy beach and my husband fished as much as he could. This is a rustic cabin right beside the water with gorgeous sunsets and surrounded by nature. We caught crabs out by the dock and had enough for a meal one night. And it was so nice that we could bring our little dog along as well. We made lots of fun memories.
