About Jo Ann Herring

I am a retired paralegal and nana to 4 wonderful grandchildren. My husband and I bought this house for our retirement because we love to fish. But he cannot retire for 5 more years. We did not want the house to sit vacant because they need people to survive, just like we do. We love sharing our home so other families can enjoy our home and all the water activities and fishing off the dock.

Jo Ann Herring purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Jo Ann Herring chose Snug Harbor

We have loved this property for years and knew the previous owners. We loved the fact that we have no neighbors in the back, just water. So there is plenty of privacy for sunbathing, family cookouts, etc. Also the Albemarle Sound is just around the corner of the property across the river. We also wanted a boat house for our Bayliner and they are few and far between in the area.

Like taking a step back in time! Very clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. Close to Edenton, Elizabeth City and the beach. I do have to agree with a previous suggestion that outdoor furniture would be a great addition - the dock is the PERFECT place to enjoy your morning coffee!

Amazing Location, Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the Holly Street retreat! The fishing was amazing, and the kids had a great time catching perch and blue gill right off the doc in the back yard! The cottage was very well maintained and felt just like home. We hope to get back there again soon. Thanks so much to Jo Ann for being such a kind and hospitable owner!

A Sisters' Retreat Weekend

A Sisters' Retreat Weekend
  • 5 of 5
My three sisters and I stayed at JoAnn's cottage this past weekend (Aug 28-31, 2014) and we have a very relaxing time. The cottage was extremely clean and we felt right at home. The quietness was what we were looking for and the serenity we got when sitting by the lake was amazing.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you and your sisters felt at home. That is so important to me and makes me happy. I knew it would be a perfect place for you and your sisters to vacation. All my guests comment on how much they love just sitting on the dock and enjoying the views and serenity and even watching the fish jumping at times. Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for future guests. It really means a lot to me and I hope you will come back again to visit.

Clean, Affordable, Peaceful Location, Dog Friendly

  • 5 of 5
Jo Anne's cottage is a great, affordable stay for families and fisherman. The cottage is well stocked with essentials and more. We brought our 18' boat which just fit into the little boat house. There is a boat ramp close by. Fishing in the Sound was great, and boating/sightseeing in the local creeks was relaxing with beautiful scenery. If you have children that just want to fish off the dock, they'll catch lots of brim by just dangling a worm right next to the dock. It's a challenge to find a comfortable, clean place that accepts dogs. The neighborhood is quiet. Thank you for sharing your cozy little home. The only suggestions I would make would be comfortable lounge chairs with an umbrella for the dock. It is in the hot sun most of the day, yet such a peaceful spot to relax by the water. Overall, clean, peaceful and affordable. Will likely return.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind review. I am so glad you enjoyed my home and found everything you needed. And it was wonderful that you caught lots of fish. Especially the children. They aren't vert patient and neither am I. So I love catching the brim one after another right by the dock in my chair. People love to hear that the fishing is good at my place. I have had many different chairs over the years, but will try to get some lounge chairs and an umbrella during this Labor Day sale if there are any left. If not I will have them by next spring. I never thought about it because I never get to stay much during the summer. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I rely on my guests to tell me what would make my home and their stay more comfortable. I hope you do come back and visit again one day.

Review for this cottage.

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was even more wonderful than we expected. When we walked in we felt as if we were walking into a warm, clean and inviting atmosphere. We brought our dog and the location was perfect for walking him, lots of quiet streets to navigate. We fished off the dock and watched the fish jump all around us without a nibble. I would highly recommend this wonderful retreat to vacationers that want to relax and enjoy the quiet southern pace of life. Jo Ann returned our deposit check promptly with a lovely note of thanks.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write this wonderful review. I am so glad you loved the place and felt like home. That is what we want more than anything, for everyone to feel warm, cozy and at home. Sorry you didn't catch any fish, but maybe next time. And more importantly, thank you for treating my house as your home and leaving it clean and ready for the next family. We hope you come back.

Fisherman's dream

Fisherman's dream
  • 5 of 5
Jo Ann's place in Snug Harbor was everything she represented. The cottage has some age on it, but that made it more quaint. The quiet surroundings, no traffic noise, just the water bumping the dock made our visit special. The property was clean and homey, almost as if it were my get-away place to cast a line and hope to not catch a fish. For those serious fishers the area is one of the best. The local marina had bait and lic. and much advice. Hertford is a gem and home to "Catfish" Hunter the 1986 baseball Hall of Fame local buried in the downtown graveyard. The ice cream cone was spectacular (try the butter pecan).
All in all a very homey place and dog friendly. Jo Ann promptly returned my deposit check, in full, as we left the place as we found it.
For an "inner banks" experience, at a reasonable cost, I will return.
