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.

Perfect Riverside Escape w/Tons of Outdoor Living

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet, private and peaceful place to stay, THIS IS IT. We booked the place for my girlfriend's birthday weekend and needed a central location for some friends who were joining us from Myrtle Beach and Charleston areas. Dale the owner was extremely helpful and responsive with any questions I had during the reservation process. When we arrived at the property to check in, he stopped by shortly after to make sure we had what we needed and to give a brief rundown of the grounds. We took full advantage of the outdoor living spaces... from jamming out to tunes and drinking beers on one of the many sundecks, to the covered hot tub area, cornhole and horseshoes, canoes... I mean it's a nature enthusiast's dream out there. Highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in the area. We will certainly be back. Thanks Dale!

Beautiful house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my girlfriend and we had a great time. It sounds cliche but pictures really don't do this place justice. The owners were very welcoming and super friendly people. Highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a cozy getaway buried in the woods on a beautiful river.

Awesome house in a quiet secluded location

  • 5 of 5

Great place - awesome location. Secluded and quiet location - had all the amenities one could want. We booked last minute and the owners were extremely accommodating and helpful! He went out of his way to help us set up the crib for my daughter and and show us around the place. The house is beautiful, and lots of thought has gone into provided what one would want/need. The boats on site for our use were awesome. Elizabethtown is a short drive away, as well as some really pretty lakes to explore. We were looking to get away, get unplugged and have some much needed family time. This place provided exactly what we needed! My son is already talking about coming back!

Beautiful Get Away

  • 4 of 5

This home is a perfect place to go to get away from it all. The pictures really do not do the house justice. It is beautiful and has everything you could need it for a weekend or a week away. The only downside was that the road to get to the house was so muddy, we had to use their truck which they graciously let us use. You could tell that the area had been damaged by hurricane Matthew, but I'm sure in time everything will be back to normal. We had a great time exploring the property and letting our dog run around! There are also two wineries relatively close by so we did that one day also. We are anxious to come back possibly in the summer when there are leaves on the trees! A big thank you to the homeowners for everything!

Quiet, cozy, amenities galore!

  • 5 of 5

This modern cabin in its rustic setting was perfect for a getaway for us and our friends. Every room we went in had something to offer. However, the most impressive part of the property was outside. From the multi-layered decks to the intimate gazebos it was so easy to enjoy the river and the awesome weather for January! We had an awesome time playing cornhole, horseshoes, making fires in the Huge fire pit, and exploring the river that was steps from the main house. We didn't want to leave to go to town for dinner! We will definitely look to come back in the summer when we can take full advantage of the warmer weather and the river access with the canoes. Thanks to the Bollingers for an amazing property! They were quick to answer our questions and showed up when we arrived to introduce us to the property and all its amenities. Couldn't have asked for more!
