Escape from reality in a waterfront log cabin that is as wonderful as it is surprising. The cabin is in the very quiet fishing village of Atlantic, NC in the Core Banks where you can truly relax and reconnect with nature and each other.
The main house is a labor of love for us. As such, you will find a fun family environment that is open and welcoming. The kitchen, dining room, and living room are an open layout and you will find the kitchen contains any pots and pans you need, firewood by the porch, and a wardrobe full of boardgames in the living room. There is also wifi and the living room tv has a dvd player and apple tv. There is a bedroom downstairs with a queen bed and a futon , 2 queen bedrooms and a twin room upstairs. There are also an extra twin mattress and two very comfy couches if you expect a crowd :) A honeymoon suite above the garage is available in a separate listing.
We want this place to be as special to your family as ours, so please enjoy the house, porches, and dock. If you would like to use the canoe, kayak, or crab pots, please enjoy them carefully. The water off the dock is quite shallow (4 feet on average) so please enter carefully from the lower dock and do not jump or dive off the dock. The closest beaches are Cedar Island, which with extremely shallow and calm water is ideal for children. or Atlantic Beach in Morehead. An outdoor shower is next to the garage and helpful with removing initial sand from little feet. There is a marina nearby to launch a boat if you would like to dock your own at the house while you are visiting. There is also a nearby ferry that can take you to Portsmouth Island for a day or further out to Ocracoke or Hatteras Islands.
Interaction with guests
We do not live nearby so at arrival, you will be greeted by the caretaker Mike who will check you in and lives nearby in case of emergency. All our information will be given to you so for any advice or questions, please contact us. Other than any communication with us, you will have complete privacy.
Please respect the house and furnishings. This is a family vacation home that we are opening up since it is being used less frequently by us recently so please treat it as you would your own home. Please do not move the furniture. Please no smoking. Animals are allowed on a case by case basis so please include information about your pets if you would like to bring them. All pets will require a nonrefundable deposit so please include this information in a message prior to requesting the cabin. Use common sense on the dock and in the water. Do not go above the garage unless you have rented it. Please do your dishes before you leave, wash your beach towels, and note what rooms have been used so we can clean and change the linens. Finally, watch the sunset and go stargazing on the dock at least once while you are there, preferably every night. The magic is on the dock.
