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 place that seems incredibly remote despite being conviently located. House has all the ammenities as well as quite a few perks like the decks and the view of the river. I had a wonderful time there.

SHHHHHHH! Keep this place a secret! ;)

  • 5 of 5

My wife surprised me with a weekend here for our anniversary last year. I come back to the site to book for this year and realized that I had failed to write a review on this. If you are like us and enjoy the outdoors, you enjoy the sound of water flowing and being surrounded by wildlife THIS is the perfect place to get away from everyday life, pop the top on a cold beverage, light the grill, put a log on the fire pit and get to know your spouse again. I know it can be a great place for the whole family but for us it is a wonderful place to just get reacquainted. The owners are personable and very accommodating. Looking forward to getting booked again real soon! I almost hate to give it the review because I can see that the best little secret in the area is getting out and it appears it is staying booked. You won't be disappointed.

the house and surroundings were awesome

  • 4 of 5

We just came back from a week stay at the Rivah Getaway. Pictures do not do this place justice. Very secluded and peaceful. Owners were very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. If there was a down side I would have to say the number of steps to the main living area...now, if you have healthy knees and hips ..no problem!! Looking forward to possibly staying again in the near future...thanks again for a wonderful vacation.

Just right for my small family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations and property were surprisingly clean. We toke advantage of all the outdoor amenities. We also experienced privacy and quietness. So may decks offered individual relaxation as well. The dirt road might be a challenge for a sedan but our SUV had no problem. It was perfect for our family and the grandkids did not want to leave. Hats off to the owners for being so accommodating.

Wonderful, Beautiful, Spacious Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved oureading stay at the Bollinger'do cottage on the Cape Fear River. The host were informative, kind, and quick to respond. Beds were super comfortable and the property was stocked with all amenities needed. Be sure to bring laundry detergent! We swam at Goldsten's beach at White Lake and visited Lumill Vineyard. Georgiano Italian restaurant in town had wonderful food!
