Plan a weekend or a whole week for your family to share a spacious home right on Kerr Lake. Once you are here you forget all about the daily grind and really feel like you are hours away from it all! The view from the back of the wrap-around porch is gorgeous, with a large grassy area for playing/grilling/games, and the lake and private boat dock are in plain view. The dock is very large for plenty of chairs to sit and fish or just enjoy the sun, or bring your boat or kayaks to explore the waters - the dock can fit at least three water crafts. The location is perfect for a quick trip from Raleigh/Durham - only 1 hour from North Raleigh or Durham (up to 1.5 hrs from S.Raleigh) the home is located just past Townsville NC, which is nice considering most of the lake is in Virginia which would take a lot longer to get to. It is also very close to a boat ramp (Ivy Hill ramp), good for anyone bringing a boat or coming for fishing, and the location on the lake is ideal because you are not on the 'main' open water so it is very quiet and peaceful, but 1 minute on a boat around a corner and you are on the open water for skiing or sightseeing. This is a self-clean accommodation*. The kitchen has all the amenities you need and features a large island with 4 bar stools - nice for entertaining. There is also a dining table for more seating, and the kitchen and dining are open to a large living room with TV, cable/internet**, DVDs, board games and a bocce ball set for your use. There are three bedrooms - two with queen beds, and one with 2 twin beds - each can sleep two comfortably, and 2 full baths. New gas grill for your use as well. NO SMOKING OR PETS. MAXIMUM OF 6 GUESTS. WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE/HANDICAP FRIENDLY! CHECK-IN TIME IS 4:00 PM DAY OF ARRIVAL, CHECK-OUT TIME IS 12:00 PM DAY OF DEPARTURE. THE FOLLOWING HOLIDAYS REQUIRE A 5-NIGHT MINIMUM STAY: Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day We also welcome any inquires regarding longer-term rentals, such as several months at a time. * This is a SELF-CLEAN accommodation. Due to the location of the property and it being remote, we do not have the cleaning options that other rentals properties may have (we often can't even get cleaning people out here at all, much less on very short notice). During the busier summer months when there are back-to-back rentals we especially need to rely on our renters to do a VERY thorough cleaning job, as there are only 4-hour windows between rentals. We do this to try to maximize everyone's time at the home, but we just ask for awareness and courtesy about this. Thank you!!! **As a warning learned from guests in the past, please do NOT come here if you plan on just watching TV or using the internet all day and night, or if you will be here on business and need to rely 100% on having internet service. As stated further in the "amenities" section, we DO have satellite TV and internet service, however due to being in such a remote location it has problems from time to time and the data package is very small for the internet so it gets used up very quickly each month and we can only buy a certain extra amount maximum per month. We hate this as much as you do because it takes a lot of our time to try to correct this all the time (on the phone with the provider, arranging someone to meet them there in a 4-hour-window since we don't live in the area, etc, etc), but we do try our hardest to have it there for at least checking emails and watching a few shows while you're there. So this is our official fine print that the service is unreliable, and we do research every year if there are any better provider options that we can try to improve this. Thanks!
