A slice of heaven on Albemarle Sound
While visiting north eastern NC doing family research, we decided to rent a VRBO instead of staying at hotels. We spent 4 lovely days at Glenn's cottage on the Sound. I cannot adequately express what a beautiful location this cottage has. Literally at the end of the road, this shoreline cottage offers one of the most quiet locations I have ever stayed at.
The house is not on the beaten path, but after a day of sightseeing, we returned to the cottage, mixed a drink and enjoyed the peace and quiet as we watched the sun set on Abermarle Sound. The area has a number of large historic home and Its a quick trip to beautiful and historic Edenton and the museum in Elizabeth city was quite interesting. The Outer Banks are alittle over an hour away.
The home is very well cared for and supplied. Fully equipped kitchen, all the toys you might need to enjoy the waterfront, numerous comfortable sitting areas with water views . A great place to gather with friends and/or family.
Glenn was very responsive if we had questions, but the home has plenty of info on wher everything might be.
All and all a great place to stay...
Lovely, peaceful vacation spot
My husband and I stayed over 4th of July weekend and "peaceful" is the perfect adjective for the property! We enjoyed canoeing and swimming near the dock each day, grilled fresh fish from Story's Seafood in Hertford and had fun touring the neighborhood and property in the golf cart. Sunsets were gorgeous, especially when enjoyed from the hot tub! The host thought of everything, from providing a well-stocked kitchen with all the needed cookware, a clean and inviting space, and all of the outdoor entertainment we could need. We also were happy to spot some wildlife, including turkey vultures in the trees (down around the point) and many seabirds, lots of frogs in the evening, and even a snake in the water out behind the barn (not poisonous). I'm sure we would have seen fish and crabs if we were looking as well. I highly recommend this property, and I’m sure we will be back in the future. P.S. if you need ice or snacks, the New Hope Country Store is about 10 minutes away and is a pretty well stocked little store. Convenient, since the next closest is a half hour away in Hertford.
This property does not disappoint on peaceful Beauty. The house was very charming. The kitchen is gorgeous. The sunroom is very spacious and beautifully decorated. The outside deck, the dock,the swing and the hot tub are all fantastic! A spacious well maintained yard with a golf cart was a added bonus. The negatives for us were the distance to everything .We have a very active family that wants to shop and go to the beach and Its a very long drive to do any outer banks activities. The size of the secondary bedrooms are small so people who are not a couple that are sharing will have a difficult time( my mom and my daughter). The master was great. Both bathrooms were past their prime and showing their age but did work fine. There is no comfy couch ( just a settee). The sunroom/living room is very hot!! The tv constantly dropped signal so don't plan on watching it. Wifi is so slow that nothing would load ( finding area attractions ect..). Bugs were some what of a problem but kinda expected (location and amount of use). Glenn was very kind and attentive without being pushy. This property is perfect for those who want to decompress and stay put . The Beauty of the water/ nature is amazing. We would have given the property 5 stars if it wasn't so removed from the activities we wanted to do.
Thanks so much for your review. We really enjoyed hosting your family and look for you next year. Nancy is absolutely right, the place is perfect for enjoying the natural beauty of the area and enjoying family time with out the hub bub of the big city. You are pretty much 20 miles away from anything! The house hasn't moved so potential guests need to make sure they understand the distances involved to other points of interest.
Thanks Nancy! Great hosting you and your family!!
This property lives up to the description "peaceful." We enjoyed our stay here, and the house had everything we needed.
Loved this house!!!
My family loved this house!! Beautiful view, beautiful home so relaxing and quiet. Was a perfect getaway and we didn’t want to leave. Will definitely be staying here again!!
This home is such a nice getaway from the busy hustle and bustle. My friends and I had an amazing time and loved exploring the downtown areas nearby. We will definitely be back! Thank you, Glenn, for such an awesome place.
Fahren Sie in Elizabeth City und reisen Sie 25 Jahre in die Vergangenheit zurück. Fahrt nach Hertford und zurück in die Zeit 50 Jahre. Holen Sie sich eine Hand geschöpft Eistüte in der örtlichen Apotheke. Gehen Sie in Edenton und gehen Sie in der Zeit 75 Jahre zurück. Hat definitiv ein Mayberry-Gefühl!
