PERFECT FAMILY SOUNDFRONT COTTAGE, BOAT SLIPS, MINUTE TO OCEAN

Wrightsville Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

Charming family cottage built by owners’ grandfather in 1959. The McGowan Cottage’s most spectacular feature is the wraparound porch - the perfect place to start and end your day. Choose a rocking chair to enjoy your morning coffee. As the day passes, boating creates an entirely different scene before your reward – brilliant sunsets over Banks Channel.

Ocean side beach is only a two-minute walk away over the dunes. During the day, if the ocean side seems a little crowded, you can always enjoy your own private beach on the sound.

Don’t forget the boat! The pier offers two boat slips and still provides ample opportunity to enjoy sound side activities. Fishing from the pier has always been a lucky spot. Enjoy your own fresh catch of the day - anything from flounder to croaker – and, most evenings, you will glimpse the Great Blue Heron who has also found the pier’s fishing to be among the best.

Cottage offers room for 8-9 to spread out in 4 bedrooms, over 1700 square feet. The eat-in kitchen is a wonderful place for family gatherings. The house is child friendly, but please, no pets. This is the cottage the owners have been coming to all their lives and we hope you will spend some time there as well. Stepping into the McGowan Cottage is like returning to a simpler, slower, more peaceful time. It’s everything the beach should be.

Must be 25 or older to rent home. Reservations made under false pretenses will be subject to cancellation/eviction with no refund given.

WATER WAY VIEW

Had a wonderful time staying at the cottage. The view across the waterway at sunset is spectacular and the house is as cozy as you can get away from home.

PERFECT FOR A WEEKEND BY THE SEA!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the McGowan Cottage for a weekend wedding that we had in town. The house was perfect for us and in a great location for an "in town" getaway. The dock was a great place to enjoy our morning coffee and soak up some rays of sun since the beach was a bit too windy on the day we were there. We were all so sad that our stay was just a weekend long. We will certainly be back to visit this one of a kind cottage on Wrightsville Beach!

CHARMING COTTAGE

McGowan cottage was the perfect location for our weekend stay during the Beach2Battleship Ironman event. The vintage decor was charming and working with the owners in making arrangements was easy. We will definitely utilize this location again!

WOW COMMOTION IN THE OCEAN SWIM MEET

  • 5 of 5
Once again, 3 families from our swim team had a wonderful time at the Mcgowen Cottage. The place is perfect for families and the weather was perfect. We especially like access to the sound and enjoyed kayaking and fishing. The beach is very close and the water was awesome. There is plenty of room to enjoy each other's company in the living room, dining room and porch. Definately plan to stay there next year.

GIRLS WEEKEND FUN

  • 4 of 5
We had a lovely girls weekend. There was plenty of room for all 10 of us. The weather was cold so we couldn't enjoy the porch, but we still had a great time!
