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 North Carolina

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.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We rented for just a relaxing place to get away and scrapbook. It was beautiful, quiet and very relaxing. Everything anyone could want for a home away from home, from canoe, hot tub, gas and charcoal grill. Beautiful decks and porches, horseshoes, NICE hammock, corn hole boards, just to mention a few. We sat on the decks and just enjoyed the river view. We will be back!

Can't say enough good things about Dale (who meet us there and gave us a tour).

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.

This was a great property to stay at! We will be back again! Glad we were able to find this place!

  • 5 of 5

This place was definitely a great catch! The listing was very true to the expectations we had! There were so many acitivities, from corn hole to the hot tub, canoeing and paddle boating, fishing off the dock or the boat, and grilling out! This vacation spot was worth every penny! We were even able to let our fur baby enjoy the stay with us. We loved having the roku in the bedroom to watch our shows and cable upstairs for extra entertainment. There was a selection of dvds for us to watch and games and puzzles. We also enjoyed sitting out on one of the many decks throughout the visit. We took a canoe ride at least 3 of our days and then relaxed in the hot tub several evenings! Don't miss out if you get a chance to book this site! I've already shared it with 2 friends!
