Wrightsville Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Page's Creek - Private Deep Water Pier with Floating Dock

Please call Jennifer (919) 770-0877 Read Reviews

Time seems to stand still at this enchanting cottage nestled by the pristine tidal creek waters of Pages Creek in a family and pet oriented neighborhood. While staying at the cottage, you can be as active as you want or simply sit back and savor the serenity. Enjoy your aha moment while you totally recharge...

The cottage has a private pier with a long boardwalk and floating dock so bring your 28' or smaller boat and moor it, or rent by the hour, day or week at Entropy Boat Rentals and ask for Chris (910-686-7677). You can also rent a paddle board, kayak or other boat related items.

When you are not out on the water, there is a multitude of options inside the cottage as well as on the acre of land where you can run and play corn hole, horse shoes or badminton (on deck).

After spending a day on the water, sit back and relax on the suspended deck over Pages Creek. The quietness is refreshing and the wide-open "Million Dollar" panoramic view of the intracoastal waterway as well as Porter's Neck and Figure Eight Island is mesmerizing. Tie your crab trap to the piling and await your dinner or throw out a sinker… Or simply sit back and watch the sunset, it is magical.

The deck off the cottage gives you a true outdoor respite where you can fire up a gas grill or light up the coals. While you await your dinner, throw up your feet and watch and listen to the birds as they serenade you with their songs of contentment.

As the sky darkens, step down to prepare the family S'mores over the fire pit or simply cuddle on the swing as you listen to the crackling wood.

The cottage has been renovated for your comfort. Spacious open plan between the living and kitchen area provides the perfect entertaining space and enables you to enjoy the beauty of the creek while inside. New cabinets, all new appliances and gorgeous granite have been installed as well as bar stools, couch, and recliner. All living room chairs swivel and rock allowing you to maximize the view.

However, if you are a traveler that enjoys exploring, you have definitely chosen the right place to hang your hat… An information notebook is provided and located beside the kitchen door to help you plan your excursions. We are so centrally located that everyone can enjoy their dream vacation. It truly is the best of both worlds – tranquility with easy accessibility...

We are committed to helping you achieve your memories. You are renting from owners that want you to enjoy our cottage as much as we do!!!!

About Jennifer or Bill

We live in Sanford but consider Wilmington as our second home. Most check-in days, we drive down to the cottage for a walk through, set up your welcome basket and wait to greet you upon your arrival. We show you through the cottage, answer any questions that you may have and depart so you can begin your vacation. If Bill and I cannot meet you, you will be greeted by our son or daughter in law. Pryor and Megan live less than a quarter of a mile from the cottage. Even though we live in Sanford, we are always just a phone call away.

Jennifer and Bill

Jennifer or Bill purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Jennifer or Bill chose Wrightsville Beach

Perfect Location... Nestled in a quiet waterfront family and pet friendly neighborhood, less than 7 miles to Wrightsville Beach. The property has a wide-open view of Pages Creek and the ICW....The water is incredibly peaceful. Have dinner on the decks as the sun sets. Fish from the dock, catch crabs in the trap or simply watch the ebb and flow of the tide throughout the day.

Occasionally, you will see a pair of porpoises swimming by the house or hear the waves crashing on Figure 8 Island. Bring your boat or rent and explore, fish, kayak, paddle-board or wake-board on the creek.

What makes this cottage unique

Waterfront... THE VIEW.... THE TRANQUILITY...Bird Watching

Deep water access with private pier and floating dock and a swim ladder...

BOAT ENTHUSIAST: The Creek Cottage is a must!!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our 4 night stay at your lovely cottage was just what the doctor ordered! We were so comfortable with the gracious furnishings, beautiful view, big yard and well stocked kitchen - perfect for the 4 adults, 1 teenager and 3 dogs in our party. When we were not hanging out here, we found good restaurants, cute shops at the Cotton Exchange, great beaches and memorable visit to the aquarium at Fort Fisher. The dogs enjoyed the long walks in the neighborhood and out onto the dock, then watching all the birds at the feeders right off the deck. Many thanks to Jennifer and Bill for their hospitality- we will spread the word about this charming "home away from home" on the coast that has something for everyone- even dogs!

UNCW Graduation Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Cottage for four nights for our son's college graduation and felt truly at home in this peaceful place. There was room enough for extended family - grandparents, God parents, and younger brother. The accommodations were perfect, with comfortable beds, open floor plan with great kitchen and living room, and spectacular outdoor space and inter coastal access for fishing and boating. The house has everything you could possibly need for a wonderful stay. Jen greeted us warmly upon arrival with a nice tour of the property, a stocked fridge, and even a graduation cake and gift for our son's graduation. Thank you Jen for making this weekend even more special! We can't wait to stay again. Regards, Karen and Mark Weber, Rockville Centre, NY.

Absolute Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, relaxing spot on the water! Abundant wildlife, friendly neighbors, comfortable furnishings, toys and games galore. We have come to the NC coast for decades, and this location on the creek has provided a unique perspective to the area. Having our dogs with us added so much enjoyment. Many thanks!

Simply Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful stay at the creek cabin. The owners Bill and Jennifer were some of the friendliest, most accommodating people that I have ever had the pleasure to rent from. The accommodations went far above and beyond what I was expecting, making it feel as though I was staying at my own family’s cabin. I highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking to have a great vacation in the Wilmington/Wrightsville area, it has only been a week since my stay and I am already planning a return trip in the near future.

As good as it gets.

  • 5 of 5

This creekside cottage is a little slice of heaven on earth. When you arrive all you need to do is unpack and relax. Everything that you could want or need is provided for your use and enjoyment. And, Jennifer and Bill are great to work with from start to finish. Thier son and daughter-in-law live nearby and are equally friendly and helpful. You feel like you've made new friends. We had many wonderful family times at the cottage. Having our dog with us is always a must, and the Tatums even supply treats, bowls and bedding for pets. The setting is beautiful and so very peaceful. You have your own beautiful dock with great water access. The cottage is located in a quiet neighborhood but it is a short and easy drive to everything else Wilmington has to offer. This is the third time we have rented in the area and the cottage is, by far, the best of the best. We look forward to many more good times at this ideal setting.

Waterfront peace

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cottage last week. Our family of five was endlessly entertained during the day on the dock and in the evening around the fire pit overlooking the water. The cottage is very well maintained and offers all the modern amenities you can want. The true beauty of creek-side is found outside; birds chirping, fish jumping, live oaks, and a sprawling lawn allow for a fantastic time for all! A perfect getaway for all ages just minutes away from shops, downtown, and the beaches. Was wonderful to be able to bring our dog as well, with a great sized fenced in area with doggy door for re-entry. Lifelong memories were made at 'A Creek Cottage'. Hope to visit again at some point! A HUGE thanks to Jennifer and Bill for making our stay so special.

We were so lucky to have a few months at the cottage this spring. So many lovely upgrades since our last visit - the new open floor plan, updated kitchen and garden. Loved the fenced in backyard for our dog! It is an adorable house, so comfortable, clean and quiet. We love it and hope to return again.
