  • Best river cottage ever


    The cottage was fantastic! We only had a short time there because my daughter got married at Wilton House Plantation. The cottage was very clean and well maintained and had everything we needed and more. We plan to come back this upcoming summer for another visit to enjoy the kayaking and the outside fire pit area. It is so quiet and peaceful, and the view is gorgeous! Rent this place and you definitely won't be disappointed!

  • 5 star property


    One of the best VRBO's we've ever stayed in! The property was extremely clean and exactly as described. We appreciated the little touches by the owners - jars of individually wrapped q-tips and make-up remover, fluffy bathroom towels, a full candy jar stocked with chocolate just to name a few. We would definitely return to this property.

  • Heavenly


    Even though hurricane Ophelia showed herself, we had a perfect stay.. the river held its own beauty, showing off whitecaps and stormy clouds. We were just as cozy as we could be on the screen porch, and loved every minute of it. Once the storm passed, we were able to fish and crab from the dock, and do well in both. Definitely one of our favorites VRBO stays and we will be back.

  • Awesome Cottage Retreat


    We enjoyed how clean and updated the property was. We really enjoyed the mornings and evenings on screened in porch watching sunrises and sunsets. Was nicer then anticipated!

  • Didn't want to leave!


    The moment we walked in, we knew we weren't going to want to leave! What a find! This place had so many amenities, was beautifully decorated and everything was comfortable! If you're a nature, water or sunset lover, THIS is the place for you! Already missing our nightly sunsets from the dock and sitting out on the huge screened in porch listening to all the sounds from nature and smelling the pines. We did a lot of sightseeing/daytrips each day but made sure to be home for the sunsets! We will definitely be back! And, we'll definitely try out the kayaks and have a fire next time around. The minute we walked in the stress melted away and calm took over. Oh and one last thing, the neighborhood was very quiet and welcoming as was the town, everyone was very friendly.

    From the owner: "We are thrilled you found Ferry Creek every bit as enjoyable as we do! The feeling of "never wanting to leave" is the best compliment a vacation home can get, and we are so happy you felt that way! We would gladly welcome you back any time and hope you do kayak and make a fire, even grill some fish or hotdogs and burgers. It will enhance your trip even more! Thanks so much for choosing Ferry Creek Cottage for your vacation!"
