We offer one of the area’s only PRIVATE lake retreats. Come and enjoy a getaway in our peaceful lake community!
The Town of Lake Waccamaw was incorporated in 1911, however, was inhabited by Native Americans for thousands of years.
Southeastern North Carolina was covered by a shallow ocean more than two million years ago and you might find interesting fossils including sharks teeth, shells and coral as you swim in the shallow water. Be sure to visit Lake Waccamaw State Park to view the 2.75 million year old whale skull that was discovered embedded in a limestone outcropping several years ago.
Measuring nearly 9,000 acres, the lake is unique in many ways ecologically with several endemic species of fish and mollusks (found nowhere else in the world).The lake is about 10 feet at the deepest with shallow waters along its shores, making it perfect for families with children. Tourist attractions include a local museum in a 1904 train depot, Lake Waccamaw State Park, our beautiful library, several restaurants, grocery and retail stores.
The guest house is totally private from our home and features a nautical theme queen bedroom with flat screen television (Direct TV and DVD player), en suite bathroom with shower. All bed and bath linens are furnished.
The common area/living room has a flat screen television (Direct TV and DVD player), a variety of movies, toys and board games for all ages. The fully equipped kitchen has a small refrigerator, coffee pot and French press, stove and microwave. A variety of cookware and utensils are for your use as well as kitchen staple items. A large refrigerator with freezer is available in the garage below.
We provide a “Welcome Breakfast” for your first morning that includes cereal, yogurt, fruit, breads, milk, juice and coffee.
The living room couch/futon converts to a very comfortable full size bed. There is a large desk for our business clients and free WiFi. Other furnishings include a table with four chairs and two rocking chairs. Guests have access to washer/dryer in the garage below the apartment as well as an outdoor kitchen with a gas stove, and a double sink. You may use the charcoal or gas grill, enjoy a large fire pit (wood provided) bicycles, and kayaks. We also have corn holes boards you may use.
Children are welcome to check out “The Crow’s Nest” treehouse and climbing wall, but please be careful. It is fairly high in the trees and may not be appropriate for very young children unless accompanied by an adult.
Sorry, we are not able to accommodate your pets, but can recommend a delightful getaway for them.
Although our log cabin isn’t on the lake front, it is just steps (the length of a football field!) from your apartment. You may use the pier for sunning, swimming, launching a kayak, fishing, relaxing or picnicking under the shaded canopy.
Lake Waccamaw is conveniently located one hour from many beaches in Wilmington, N.C. and one hour from Myrtle Beach, S.C.
