This property was an excellent choice for our family gathering of 22 people, 11 kids (ages 5-17) and 11 adults. First of all, the game room was wonderful for the kids and adults alike..this was a favorite of everyone. Overall, there was plenty of space for everyone to spread out and have some personal space, as well as areas to gather together. We used the week to have lots of time to visit and re-connect with each other. The bathrooms were up to date and accomodated us well. For groups as large as ours, we had to split up between the breakfast room and dining room to eat, as there is not enough space in the dining room to accomodate 22 people. We enjoyed sitting on the back deck drinking our morning coffee, viewing the wildlife. We also loved the view from the front porch of the church grounds and mature trees. We were able to bring a canoe and this would be a good location for that type of water sport. We found the people in the surrounding community to be very friendly. Overall, everyone agreed that this was one of their most "laid back" vacations.
PROS: good place for family gatherings, reunions, retreats; wonderful gameroom; beautiful place to canoe; lots of wildlife viewing (some members of our group saw a black bear from the safety of their car);about 1 hour to outer banks; 25 mins to the quaint harbortown of Edenton;interesting area to explore (though requires driving)
CONS: If you do not want to prepare your own meals, you will have to do some driving. This is a rural setting and depending on the type of restaurants the drive would be 20-60 minutes. Second, you are very close to the albemarle sound, but need to be creative to find ways to access the water if you dont have your own boat. It was difficult to find any type of boat rental nearby, so if you want to be on the water, you may need to bring your own. If you enjoy walking and enjoying the water views from land, you will not be disappointed.

Great location for group or family events! Fishing, hunting, boating, golfing, canoeing, weddings, family reunions, history and much more.

FOUR HUNDRED YEARS of History for North Carolina -begins around the Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds. From Sir Walter Raleigh's Lost Colony to existing homes that stood decades before the Revolutionary War to modern-day river towns, this is a land of rich heritage.

The mainland towns that line its rivers and estuaries are a microcosm of American history. From first exploration by English colonists in 1584 to protestation against British tyranny in 1774 to invasion by the Union Army during the Civil War, the Albemarle has played a role in just about every major event in American history.

The area's often-turbulent history, however, is interwoven with a peaceful rural setting and a relaxed pace of life. Albemarle towns are often preserved with an eye towards the past, but ever evolving with the times. The countryside is characterized by farms and crossroad communities, punctuated by opulent plantation homes that are reminders of another time. The bountiful waters of the Albemarle Sound and rivers are pristine and inviting to boaters and fishermen. And its people are proud of their heritage and their land, and love to invite visitors to join them.

The Albemarle Sound is a unique blend of fresh and brackish water provide a great selection of fish. Striped bass never leave the area, while largemouth bass and crappie are found in nearly every creek and backwater. Flounder, red drum and weakfish hang out in the main basin.

The Albemarle Sound has had over 400 years as a living history community. From the military expeditions to seek resources and the Roanoke Colony, the explorations of the English encountered a challenging wetland environment and began interactions with the Algonquians who resided in the vicinity.

It was at this intersection of five waterways with the Atlantic Ocean, where the English and American settlements contributed to the changing landscapes. This community relied on watersheds, as port towns, and continued the traditions of the tribes as fishermen, traders and farmers. And it is this unique wetland and waterway environment that enabled the indigenous population to remain in their homelands and slave runaways to seek refuge and routes to freedom.

A few miles away is Lake Phelps which is the state's second largest natural lake. Its formation is a mystery. Formed on a vast peninsula lying between the Albemarle Sound and the Pamlico River, the lake is believed to be more than 38,000 years old. An Indian dugout canoe was found in the lake dating back nearly 4,400 years. Other artifacts have been found around the area dating as early as 8,000 B.C.Its origin has long puzzled scientists. Some say that its origin is underground springs, wave action, wind, a meteor, glacial activity or a peat burn. It is more or less a round shape. Due to the lake's acidity largemouth bass are not capable of reproducing in Lake Phelps but for some mysterious reason they do.The shoreline of Lake Phelps is lined with bald cypress trees that provide habitat for birds, turtles fish and other North Carolina wildlife. The winter is considered to be the best time for migratory bird watching at Lake Phelps. Lake Phelps is a fresh water lake, some 5 miles across, with an average depth of 4 feet.

Other attractions include beaches within an hour drive such as Nags Head, outlet stores, all beach attractions and much more.
