About Dale Bollinger

Hi my name is Dale Bollinger. I am a life long resident of Bladen County. I spend my life with my wonderful wife Rocio and our 3 year old daughter Amanda Belle. I love nature and the river which led me to acquiring this property several years ago. Our cabin was fully renovated by us over the last few years. We are still adding new features yearly to our property.

Dale Bollinger purchased this cabin in 1990

Why Dale Bollinger chose Elizabethtown

I love fishing and this cabin by the Cape Fear allowed me to spend time doing the things I enjoy most.

What makes this cabin unique

The ever changing views of the foliage that surrounds the cabin and the Cape Fear River and the serenity of the area. Watching the multitude of wild life.

Great little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house was just perfect for us! The outdoor space is fantastic - so much awesome decking area you could spend the whole day outside! Unfortunately it rained most of the time we were there so we didn't get to take advantage of all the amenities (like the cornhole boards, etc), but sitting in the hot tub with the rain falling down on the tin roof above while looking out at the Cape Fear River was totally relaxing. The house was super clean, and very well appointed. I think the most fun we had was when we broke out the old school board games at the house and played "Trouble". There's no official "dining area", but the breakfast bar accommodates four comfortably. My son's only complaint was that he couldn't hook up his PS4 to the living room television, but then he got to use the big TV in the master bedroom for that. The master bath is awesome as well, with a giant walk in shower and huge jetted bath tub. There are a lot of stairs, so someone with mobility issues might have a hard time, but for us it was perfect!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place! The outdoor space was HGTV worthy! My children and grandchildren had a wonderful time. The ipods, phones, etc... were almost never seen. They enjoyed the natural beauty of this place. The fishing, boating, and exploring was unlike anything they had done before. It was such a wonderful time for my whole family. The property owners were wonderful, and the cabin was fully stocked with all essentials. This will not be our last visit. We all just LOVED it! Really can't say enough about it.

The property owners were wonderful. The cabin was fully stocked with everything we needed. We could not have asked for a more relaxing place to spend with our children and grandchildren. Will definitely be back!

Quiet beauty on the river

  • 5 of 5

The house was even better than we expected from the photos. Having coffee on the deck in the morning while we watched the mist swirl on the river was perfect. We only wish we could have stayed longer.
