Beautiful home situated in the Cape Fear Station area of Bald Head Island. Located beside the Commons, a large park where the kids can play, includes a tower that the kids can climb. Located close to the beach, and near the Shoals Club, at which as a guest staying in the Canterwood Cottage, you have full use of the pool, restaurants, and club amenities.

The Shoals Club is a very special place, where you can plan and have very special events from Weddings to Birthdays. Canterwood Cottage, also has membership at the Bald Head Island Club*, where you can golf, tennis and croquet on a beautifully manicured Croquet field (croquet whites required). There is also a club dining room, Delicatessen, and a second pool for your use. (*Please understand that even though we have both memberships, there is a temporary membership fee that the guest will pay for these privileges)

So come discover this very special place, hidden among the ancient live oaks, salt marsh and ocean environments, and walk around with the sea turtles, deer, fox, and raccoons. Bald Head has a turtle conservancy for the preservation of the sea turtle, and there are countless opportunities for guided tours about the island and day trips on sail boats, or captained skiffs.

Why Ainsley Moyer chose Bald Head Island

After visting BHI for a few years we knew we wanted a home in Cape Fear Station. Canterwood Cottage was located where we feel, as do all our renters, the "perfect location". Canterwood Cottage is close to East Beach, The Shoals Club, and The Commons.

What makes this house unique

Together with our children, friends and family we enjoy watching shooting stars from our front porch!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I would just like to say thank you for letting my wife and I stay at your beautiful home at Bald Head Island for our anniversary. It was our first time on the island and it was memorable, from the moment we arrived at Deep Point until the time we returned. Your home could not have been more welcoming to us, we really felt at home. We look forward to having the opportunity of staying at your home again in the future and this time with our two children ( I know they will love the bunk beds) and let them enjoy the island as well. Again, thank you and your family for everything and you'll be hearing from us again.

Thank you,

James and Kim McDonnell

Another amazing week at BHI!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home with the most comfortable beds. Loved the location near South East Beach, bikes were a huge plus for me and my daughter. Home was very spacious especially the kitchen area with great seating area for all of us.

Owner quick to respond with any ?'s we had...................would stay here again!

Great House on BHI

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house and great location in the maritime forest. Nice adult/teenage size bikes and golf cart. Great front porch also for our one rain day. Our son liked the bunk room and our daughter and friend enjoyed their own space in the crofter. BHI is such a great place to unwind!

Relaxing, Well-Appointed and Close to the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a terrific time in this sweet home. Tons of space for the 2 of us and the home could easily host 8 people comfortably. While this house is situated in the forest, it is close enough to the ocean you can hear it from the front porch which was an unexpected bonus! We'll definitely be back!

2nd visit--as good as ever!

  • 5 of 5

I have had the good fortune of staying here twice, once with my whole family in tow and this past week with just my elderly mother. The place is fabulous, with every little thing thought of for your comfort. You won't go wrong with renting this home and Ainsley is wonderful to deal with!

Always a pleasure

  • 5 of 5

It was not our first stay at this property, and I hope it will not be our last. It is a comfortable rental home and the right size for our family. We love the proximity to the beach and the layout works well for us. The owner and the property manager are extremely responsive.

Very nice home. Loved the front porch!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in your home, we had everything we needed. We have stayed here before and really enjoyed the new golf cart. The only complaint we had was that the oven really needed cleaning, we didn't use the oven due to it not being cleaned. Otherwise everything was great! Thanks Ainsley!
