I'm really tempted not to be truthful in my review here, because I want this house to be available next time I head to Washington, NC, but I can't bring myself to do it. My wife, my son, my sister and I stayed here over the long weekend of my daughter's wedding. It was one of the best decisions we've ever made. So often, a house you rent doesn't quite live up to the pictures on the Internet. In this case, the pictures don't really do the house justice. The house itself is in pristine condition, the kitchen well-appointed, the bathroom spacious with a chest filled with towels just outside. The owner, Jim, was there when we arrived cleaning up after Hurricane Florence, and he left a half-gallon of milk and several bottles of water in the fridge (not sure if everyone should expect that :-). The sofa bed was quite sleepable for my son. The WiFi was excellent. The sun room and deck were wonderful places to eat and hang out, especially in the morning with the house shading the deck from the sun. I watched my Cleveland Browns win for the first time in two years on the huge TV in the living room, which gets the NFL Network (my parents at the Days Inn couldn't get the game).
The house became "wedding central" a bit, with my parents, who slept at the Days Inn in town spending much of the weekend hanging with us here and our daughter having her hair and make-up done in the huge bathroom. Very short drive into town to grab lunch at Rachel K's to bring back for everyone. I confess we were over the 6-person limit a few times during the day - such a perfect place to gather and chat.
The perfect weather we enjoyed certainly contributed to our enjoyment of the house, but it was such an oasis of relaxation for us for what is inherently a somewhat stressful event.
The only real complaint I can come up with is the No Pets policy, which kept us from bringing our adorable little dog with us. But that policy could be a contributor to why the house is so nice - not everyone's pets are so adorable and little.
Thanks so much for offering such a wonderful house! It created its own set of memories to go along with the memories of our daughter's beautiful wedding.
The owner has went above and beyond to make our stay great.
Enjoyed sunrises from the property. The property has a private pier and access to the river where one can swim or fish.
We loved the sun room and relaxing in the hot tub.
All in all will stay here again if we ever get a chance and would recommend to all.
