Good view, quiet, charming, good value, clean.
The Crab Shack was exactly as it was presented it the advertisement. The privacy of the place is an enticement for a return visit.
It was a very relaxing stay. The outdoor shower was the most amazing thing while being able to reconnect with nature. The evenings spent sitting at the end of the dock were priceless. Andy’s hospitality was like none other. We would recommend this place for those who want to reconnect to one another with no distractions. As far as the town, there’s not much to do...not really any beaches or water activities unless you own your own boat, etc. The property itself was great and very beautiful.
We love this place!
This year was our second visit to The Crab Shack and it was every bit as wonderful as we remembered. It's beautifully and comfortably appointed, with everything we needed for a delightful retreat. With the available kitchen supplies, outdoor grill (with side burner), we cooked in every night, enjoying seafood and produce from the local markets. The owner, Andy, is quick to respond to all messages and very attentive. We recommend this great spot to friends and look forward to returning again!
Wonderful week at Jimmy & Sook's Crab Shack
Don't let the size fool you-this place is all you need! We went to the cottage for a week of relaxation and unwinding, and our goal was accomplished! This cottage is clean, well furnished, and located in a most serene area. Each morning was spent sipping coffee of the patio as the sun came up; watched nearby water-men ready their crab pots before they headed out for the morning. Andy has tastefully furnished and decorated this gem; wise use of storage spaces. The outdoor shower was perfect! In fact, we never used the indoor shower. We took our pontoon boat and enjoyed many trips around beautiful Carters Creek. Traveled to Tides Inn (right up the cove) for a few meals. Their dock is most accommodating. Meals eaten in nearby Irvington, Kilmarnock, and White Stone were delicious. See Andy's notebook for suggestions. I would like to add "Vine" (Irvington) to the list for those of you who enjoy wine. Their "small plates" were more than enough to satisfy your appetite. Nice selection of wines to choose from. Ate the best fried flounder ever at Sandpiper in White Stone! Everyone in the area was most welcoming! Drive around a bit and see more of the charm of Weems. Same thing for Irvington. Cute shops (including Jimmy & Sook), and for those who like to buy fabric, don't miss SewLoveLee!
Can't wait to go back to this little slice of Heaven!
The Crab Shack
The Crab Shack is a wonderful place to stay! The property is situated on a beautiful waterway (and a very peaceful no wake zone). The cottage is well appointed and quite delightful, but it could only be eclipsed by sitting at the end of the dock in the evenings and watching the boats glide slowly by. Andy was available by phone and extremely helpful upon check. Everything was fine during our stay, so we didn’t need to contact Andy, but he let us know that we could contact him at any time with any needs we had during our visit. He also contacted us upon departure to be sure that all went well while we were there. This property is beautiful and we hated to leave, but we will certainly return again.
Thank you for sharing the Crab Shack with us Andy!

The Crab Shack is ideally situated for a quiet getaway for one person or a couple. At the end of the pier are two chairs from which to watch all types of working and pleasure boats glide by. Eagles, ospreys, herons and gulls provide natural entertainment daily.
Guests may fish off the pier without a permit - there are croaker, bluefish and rockfish in the creek.
If guests choose to arrive by water, either a sail boat or a power boat will have no trouble at the pier - the MLW is 8' deep.
Shopping, sporting and dining choices are just a boat ride or short car ride away. In nearby Irvington, Kilmarnock and White Stone there are art galleries, antique shops, boutiques, tennis courts, golf courses, restaurants and cafes to enjoy. Guests can choose to be as active or as relaxed as they like.
